When it comes down to offroading and the American automotive industry, you can't match Jeep's standards. While the Jeep brand of today might be a comfortable cruiser that has serious off-road potential, back in the day, venturing into the greater outdoors was a journey always confidently completed in a Jeep CJ. Regarded as "America's workhorse," the humble CJ was built to last and take its owners where no one dared venture in complete confidence. Out of the many model years and designations, the CJ5 stood out as being more modern and also reputed as a vehicle that is hard to kill off. This legendary status helped it stay in production for 30 years, and over 600,000 units were made. With a rich pedigree and remarkable off-road capability, this 1964 Jeep CJ5 we have today is a true legend and a piece of American automotive history. What's better? It can be yours to drive off in today!
