    Spinning off of the superjeep registry I'm hoping to compile current owners of the surviving Tuxedo Park MK1, 2, 3 & 4's, both cj5 and cj6.

    Especially want to start to compile any information about the very early ones about which it seems like there isn't much out there.

    Who's got a Tux or has some info on one? Post it up and give some details.

    Nice Jeeps!

    Paint and trim tag is cool. Jeep used that type of tag through 1972. They are just glued on, and often fall off. If it were mine, I'd at least make sure that it's well secured. If not, I'd remove it for safe keeping, or maybe stick it back with some Pliobond type cement.

    Since you're bringing up the Tuxes, I have never seen or documented any MK l or MK ll Tuxes. The implication is there were two previous versions. The MK lll Tux was offered for 1963, and only in Indian Ceramic (coral) and had a white grill. Unfortunately, the MK lll didn't have any different designation on the model/serial tag from regular CJ5 models. I'm not aware of any CJ6 versions either.
    The MK lV Tux had two distict versions and was a stand-alone new model, either 8322 or 8422 for the long wheel base. The '64 and '65 F134 versions with the column shift T90/single lever T/C . These came in only 4 body colors; White Cap, Presidential Red, Sylvan Green, and Sierra Blue. There were many unique trim features such as chrome parts.
    I have heard that the V6 Dauntless was introduced in the second generation MKlV, which seem to be available in any Jeep color, though Prairie Gold (light yellow) was popular. The MK lV Tuxes were made partway through the '67 model year.
    All this info is off the top of my head and I will add to or correct information when I get back home to look into my notes. I happen to be up on the NC Outer Banks where my two Tuxes reside. I still have the '64 my father bough new in '65, and it serial #11400 and it was White Cap with red top and seats.
    I'll look tomorrow at my other one (Sierra Blue/blue) to post the numbers. I have also parted a Sylvan Green one and will post those numbers.

    Roy, your reading too much into your Tux serial number. You are correct that the "A" designates the Dauntless, but the rest are simply serial #16391. The Tuxes used sequential serial numbers. I'll post up the range when I get back in town.

    This period ad also implies the existence on the mark 1 and 2. Whether or not there are still any in existence is up for debate, but they certainly did at some point.

    I'd be interested to see folks add their paint color, interior color, and other info (drivetrain, etc).

    I'll add both of mine in soon.

    Mine doesn't have much original equipment left, but here's what I do know.

    1965 CJ5A 8322 14476 would put production in March of 1965 - Currently titled as a '61 as the owner before me bought it at a police auction and they didn't have access to the VIN listings we use. I will have to re-title it at some point to correct the model year.
    Original color was President Red
    Black split front bench seat (in excellent original shape)
    Column Shift was changed to floor before I got it, still have the column with the attachment for the shifter and original steering wheel, now modified to Saginaw power steering.
    Original hood with the Mark IV badges and the cutout for the snorkel (snorkel filler plate missing)
    Original tail gate with the the license plate bracket
    Had a F-134 with T-90 and twin stick Dana 18. Only the 18 remains.
    Had a fresh air heater that was rusting apart.
    Original grill shell was kept, but modified for my power train.
    It did have the mounts on the tub for the old style soft top poles.
    All chrome (hinges, mirrors, etc.) missing

    Here is it as I purchased it. Someone wanted an M38A1.


    Current state as my wife's daily driver.

    What are the plans for this Tux? Are you going to track down all the Tux specific parts?

    This tux has become an LS swapped restomod, detailed in my signature. I would like to find most of the smaller pieces, like the chrome hinges. I did buy a set of the hood badges and the tailgate license plate.

    1965 Tux Park Mark IV. Vin 8322 10974. F head, floor shifted t90 ( was a column, dash and sticker are still there), D18 twin stick, 5.38's with 11" brakes. Has a small lift and 33's. Got it by accident. Was looking for a flat fender and happened upon this and it was a good deal. From what i can tell it was built in May of 1964 but it's titled as a 1965. Most of the chrome and tux park parts are missing. someone along the way made it into a trail rig.
