|1964 Tuxedo Park, Mark IV Jeep CJ-5A|
This is a very rare Jeep. This CJ was considered the first SUV, built as the civilian model back in the 60s. There were less than 3,000 of these to roll off the assembly line in their limited 4-year run. With its 40th birthday only 1 year away, the value is increasing.
The F-134, 4-cylinder engine may seem small but it has a tremendous amount of power. I have replaced all of the major components:
-Distributor w/Cap, Coil, Points
-Plugs and Wires
-Gas Tank and Electric Fuel Pump
The T-90 3-speed transmission is also new and has less than 3,000 miles. The gear ratio is low which gives it plenty of power. It originally had a 3-speed column shifter, but I had in professionally converted to a 3-speed floor shifter.
The 4-wheel drive is the real-deal, all 4 tires will dig, grab and bite, when engaged. You will have a very difficult time finding a trial too tough for this Jeep.
The entire Jeep is solid. The body and frame are in great shape. There was some surface rust starting on the rear quarter panels and a little bit of surface rust on the floor boards. The front right fenders has a small dent, but the rest of the body is pretty dent free.
Some of the other extras/additions include:
-High back bucket Seats
-New Rancho Shocks and Stabilizer along with 1 1/2 suspension lift
-New Chrome Grant Steering Wheel
-Full Chrome front push bar
-60 Watt Driving Lights
-Full swing-away rear tire carrier with two Gerry Cans
-Extensive brake system repair
-Extra Half Hard Top
-Extra Set of Military Tires and Steel Wheels
-Extra set of low-back bucket seats
-Brand new stereo and speakers
IMPORTANT: Selling and describing this Jeep is very hard because there are literally thousands of components to a Jeep. Different things are important to different people and something that is very minor to one buyer may be very important to another. Please do not assume anything, if there is something that you know is important to you, please e-mail your question. The only dumb question is the one not asked. I value my feedback and want you to be 100% excited about your purchase.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Title? Yes. I have a clean title.
Where did the Jeep originate? I bought this Jeep in Texas, where I think it has spent most of it life. Thats why the body and frame are in such great shape.
How often do I drive it? My dad and I primarily used it during hunting and fishing season or just to cruise around town. We have only been putting about 200 miles/year on it.
Does it have power steering? The Jeep does not have power steering, but with the light weight 4cyl, it really doesnt need it, steering is tight and responsive both on and off road.
Hows the transfer case? The transfer case was a 3-speed column shifts and worked great. I had a 3-speed floor shifter installed, but still have the forks if you prefer to switch it back to a column shift. I spent over $700 to have the new transmission installed and this transmission has less than 3,000 miles on it.
How is the paint job? I think the paint job looks great in the pictures and from a distance, but honestly, it really needs a paint job. I have spent most of my time and money working out the mechanical bugs. So, consider this a blank canvas that you will need to paint.
What about the Tops? The full hard top is considered a Artic Winter top. It is also an extremely rare find and I have had numerous people who have wanted to just purchase the top. Sorry, I wont break up the set. The top is in great shape, the windows are all solid and are not clouded. This top is steel, so Ill bet it weighs over 500 lbs. I also have a half steel hard top and soft top to go with it. The soft top is missing some hardware.
How are the tires? The current tires are Goodyear and they have a good amount of tread left on them. They are 31 x 10.50 and give it a pretty smooth ride. I also have a set of military tires that are mounted on black steel rims. These are great for some serious mud.
How does it start? The starter is new. The Jeep has a manual choke, to start in cold weather, pull the choke, pump the gas 2xs and turn the key, when it starts, give it a minute to warm up and push the choke in. In warm weather, I never use the choke, just pump 2xs and shes ready to roll.
Is there extra storage? There is solid storage under passenger seat for extra tools and stuff and the glove box is in solid shape.
Can I drive it home? I have been getting emails from people all over the country asking me if it would make the trip if they were to drive it a extended distance. My answer is this, the Jeep has stock gearing, 55mph is about all she will do without really taxing the motor (rpm too high). I would not recommend a lot of highway driving. If you want to drive it to its new home, map out a back-roads route with speed limits to what this Jeep was made for. Otherwise I would suggest a trailer or shipping. Plus, with the additional tops, wheels, seats, etc. that go with the purchase, you will need to have the ability to haul home the extras.
The Jeep is located in Clarence, PA, ZIP-16829. I have over $6K invested, but thats typical for a Jeep rebuild.
