It came in 1954 and left in 1984. The CJ-5 was a bit bigger/longer than the CJ-3B and was based on the round-fendered '51 M38A1. Willys gave its latest Jeep Universal model lots of newness at launch. Completely new! New ruggedness! New dependability! New comfort! New versatility! The CJ-5 was stepping it up in the brakes, suspension, seating, and even the glovebox (now with cover!) departments. A new instrument panel, larger windshield, and hand brake were selling points. The CJ-5 graduated from Willys to Kaiser and then to AMC. The short wheelbase and narrow frame of the CJ Jeeps allowed them to fit into places where full-size 4x4 trucks could not go. Their ability to maneuver over rough terrain made them ideal for park maintenance vehicles, forest fire protection, and transporting equipment and supplies to hard-to-reach places. Also helping them gain popularity was their low cost of repairs and operation. The push was that the Universal Jeep was truly universal--stick it in agriculture, public service, transportation, communications, industry, and it would do the job--from street sweeping to acting as a public address vehicle because it was the world's most useful vehicle.Kaiser Jeep was the result of the merger between the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation, and the Willys-Overland Company. Willys-Overland had survived World War II by producing the Jeep vehicle for the armed forces, and Jeep was considered the crown jewel of Willys-Overland. American Motors Corporation (AMC), looking to expand their product line, had on a couple of occasions entered into negotiations with Kaiser executives with the intent of purchasing the company. The deal was finalized in 1970, and Kaiser Jeep became Jeep Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of AMC.For more information on this outstanding 1970 Kaiser Jeep CJ5 'Open Body', or any of our 40+ classic and collectible cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants today or always feel free to drop by our 5-acre Park Place Center in Bellevue, WA - Home to the West Coast's Most Diverse Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, Collectible and Special Interest Automobiles with 150+ Always on Site.
