As seen on Craigslist
1965 Jeep Cj 5
white frame . been posted before . didn't sell last time priced too high
There's a lot to like here - what appears to be an excellent body, and a nicely done 4.3 swap.
A lot to dislike too...stock brakes, square tail lights, and most of all the white chassis. Looks like they shot the whole frame & drivetrain in white while the body was off, you'd damn near have to take the body back off to change the frame color back to black! I also don't like the clash between the wheel & body color.
Glorified spray can rebuild. The only thing going for it is the 4.3. No power brakes or steering.. etc..
I don't doubt he has over 10K into it, but its still only a 2500 jeep IMOP
I really like it.
Other than the white chassis and price, I would be proud to say that's my jeep.
I think he even painted the winch white.
This one's local to me. Last time I saw it for sale, it had a matching boat and trailer. Yes, the trailer frame was painted white. There were also matching floral print seat covers in both. It looked like a solid, but very ugly, rig.
Is that a overdrive stick I see in there? Does appear that way, but did not see it mentioned. Did I miss it?
My bad. PTO stick. Sorry my phone is small.
It needs a surrey top and chrome hubcaps to complete the look.
It had a hard top....I bought it with the doors from the guy a couple years ago. It was restored well. Good glass with new seals and windows rolled right up and down smoothly. Come next fall It will be on my Jeep. Unless someone NEEDS it BADLY.
when do you need a top in FLA
This is N. FL - not the warm part. It's in the 50s today!! Isn't that hard top weather? Maybe I'm just getting used to comfort of a new truck here in my old age. But y'all have to cut me a break anyway - this is my FIRST Jeep.
When it rains, for about 15 minutes, 260 days a year. Plus, as Scott mentioned, it isn't always warm here. And then in the summer, which is basically April thru October, you appreciate the shade when eggs will fry on the sidewalks. Other than that, topless all the time!
