This is a wider 'Jeep', longer 'Jeep', and roomier 'Jeep'. It's a better looking vehicle all around. It can carry more passengers providing softer, more comfortable seats in front and rear. Easier riding front and rear suspension provides greater stability on the roads, more comfort and even longer life for the vehicle.
The same 75 HP Hurricane Engine that powered the CJ-5's predecessors drives this latest model. And like its predecessors, it will carry personnel, move machinery, dig trenches, shunt railroad cars, mow grass, work as a wrecker, fight fires, snake logs, pull mine cars, transport materials, load airplanes, drill wells, and power pneumatic tools.
Extra sturdiness. Newly designed fenders, hood, and body are of heavy gauge sheet metal, flanged and overlapped for added strength. The new body design not only creates a pleasing appearance, but offers tremendous resistance to damage.
New extra-strength frame of channel girder construction. A new, fully boxed front cross-member has been added to further increase the rigidity, carrying strength and rugged endurance of the Universal 'Jeep' frame.
New, larger windshield. Both types of windshields, the stationary type and the ventilating type, have been increased considerably.
The stationary type on the C J-5 has been increased 92 square inches. The total glass area now measures over 682 square inches.
The ventilating type of windshield on the new C J-5 has been increased over 77 square inches. It now measures over 607 square inches.
New, built -in defrosting chamber helps keep glass clear.
New, easier-riding springs - both front and rear - are 4 inches longer for greater comfort. A low deflection rate but high total spring capacity, provides smoother riding, excellent stability, and longer life.
New, softer front bucket seats are form fitting with coil springing for a surprisingly comfortable ride. The new covering is attractive, long wearing, and waterproof. The driver's seat is adjustable to three positions fore and aft. A double and single front seating arrangement for driver and two passengers is available at extra cost.
