    The listing claims this Jeep is almost completely original, with only 22k miles. It includes some good photos:

    Purchase used 1974 ORIGINAL CJ5 RENEGADE in Lebanon, New Jersey, United States

    "This does not come around often...say once every 40 years.

    This 1974 is completely factory original. The paint is original as Toledo applied it, graphics, seats, windshield, body, engine....everything. I spent months cleaning and polishing and detailing every part of this jeep to get back to showroom condition.

    I purchased this vehicle from the original owner in Missouri. She was a widow of 33 years. This jeep was her husbands and the couple owned a summer cottage on a lake just outside KC. He purchased it new in Kansas City in 1974 and took it directly to their summer home. There he put 22, 250 miles on the jeep until 1981 when after he had put the vehicle in the garage or the evening he had a stroke and shortly died. The jeep was left in the garage for 33 years by his widow so as to preserve his memory along with all his other trappings.

    He took great care of this vehicle, just getting new tires on the vehicle in 1979 (white walls) changing the oil, filters and plugs. He placed vinyl labels indicating the date and mileage on the cowl and filters. I surmise a rather anal guy who loved his chick magnet ride.

    When I purchased it:

    1.) I changed the brake Master cylinder, wheel cylinders and installed new brake lining and hoses because they were seized from non use and the fluid was like mud.
    2.) Installed a new fuel tank because I could not get the old fuel out.
    3.) Sent the carb out to be rebuilt by American Carburetor, Inc (no replacement parts, NOS original AMC gaskets and original tag with matching date that came with it) It looks and operates like new.
    4.) Replaced the E-Brake cable because it was very stiff and hard to operate.
    5.) Flushed the entire coolant system and installed new hoses.
    6.) Replaces the fan belt
    7.) Replaced the rubber fuel lines.
    8.) Complete compound, polish inside, under the hood etc.
    9.) Change all lubes in diff, engine, trans, transfer case and lube chassis.


    I have the original WHITCO top and Doors in white. The top is in new condition because it was not on the vehicle at the time it was placed in the garage Very clean and super original.

    The spare is the original Goodyear Polyglas Suburbanite. With original aluminum wheels. Whitco original spare tire cover was on it when I purchased.

    There are factory dates and part numbers on the frame that are clearly visible, and the stamped frame serial numbers match to VIN.

    There is only surface rust staining on the floor.

    The seats are original to this vehicle, soft and strong: are beige in color, only one small 1" seam separation on the drivers seat.

    The seat belts are new condition, one set of the rear seat belts are still in the factory protective black bag the way they came from the factory. Amazing!

    The Engine fires immediately and runs very, very smoothly, with no leaks, clicks, pings.

    All Gauges work, lights, brakes, wipers, horn, turn sigs.

    The factory color is Mellow Yellow matches the tag."

    So is he selling or bragging? Great example of a survivor.
