  • I need help identifying the year of my jeep

    Are there any body style differences between a 1959 CJ5 and a 1961 CJ5? Long story made short....the MVD is trying to tell me my titled jeep is a 61' not a 59'. Can anyone help?

    not sure if it applies that far back..... but. sometimes you can find production dates on the steel tags that are on various parts, diff's, t cases, trannys, engines.

        Thanks so much!

        The serial numbers help alot. I definately have a 1959. Guess its back to the DMV to prove my jeeps age! Thanks!

          I'm going to need proof

          The DMV is most likely not going to take my word for it. Is there any book or other proof with the serial numbers listed that I can take to the DMV with me to show them the numbers? My jeeps serial number definatley fits into the 1959 group.
          Thanks again.

            I found this link that might help, says it's for CJ3B, though.


            I once had another link that helped me decode my '72, and thought I had it saved as a Favorite, but I can't find it. I'll keep looking.

              Thank you so much. With all the information posted here, I believe I have enough proof to get the title put back as 1959. I was able to use the link to find the serials numbers on line.
              Thanks again everyone.
