Old (Willys / Kaiser) CJ-5... VIN date?

Tried Search but didn't come up with a lot- maybe I'm just entering the wrong words. Might have access to an older CJ-5 (long story) but I'm trying to figure out what year this thing is. (See attachment). Best I can find in my Chilton's manual is a chart to identify the model by the serial number (I already know it's a CJ-5). Any way to figure out the year? I'm way more used to the AMC years than these earlier models. Maybe have to go by an engine code to get the year? Next comes title hassles and it might not be worth it anyways... if it ever even does become available. Thanks for any help!

Re: Old (Willys / Kaiser) CJ-5... VIN date?

Thanks guys for the tips! So far it looks like it's either a '67 or '68. Seems like this one is kind of stuck between the CJ-3B years (many fans) and the "better record keeping" years. I've put a couple hours into searching the web and still haven't come up with anything that is dead on for sure positive. (A lot of searching for a Jeep that's not mine and probably never will be, but you know how it is when ya' get obsessed with a Jeep Thing)! I'm not so concerned about the year... but the Secretary of State doesn't like playing guessing games as far as a potential title search. (That's if you can get any help at all). I have "8305" (CJ-5) "S" (no clue what that means) and 240937. The best chart I can find stops in June of '66 at 233064. DOH!
