We love the CJ5 because it's at the intersection of where the military-developed Jeeps really began to evolve into the all-purpose 4x4s we know today. This 1956 Jeep CJ5 is one of the best examples of that transition. It's from the early years, and so it has some truly classic features that you'll discover when you check out the full package. But what you'll also see are some nice additions that show care and add capability. The result is the right mix of vintage fun and useful upgrades.

So people take a look at the production date and do a double-take. We often see CJ5s from the 1970s and 80s, but the 1950s seems unheard of. But that's how versatile the CJ5 was. It was a staple of the lineup for 30 years, and this is one of the earliest years available. That's why you can proudly show off details like the steering wheel and motor that are more closely related to the original military Jeep. It even still has the twin-stick system for the four-wheel drive. But what's also really nice is how this one blends in with the younger classics when it wants to. The X-Bull 13000 lb. winch, upgraded wheels, fender flares, side steps, proper roll bar, and trailer hitch are all part of a versatile style that you see on CJ5s of any age. So it's hard not to be impressed with both the history and the utility of this Jeep. And when the price for something this distinct is also so affordable, you know you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!
