Watching the way Bill Goodwin attacked the obstacle course in his super-rare CJV35/U, you would have no idea it is one of less than 100 known to exist today. Similar to the CJ-3A civilian Jeep, the U.S. Navy contracted the construction of 1,000 Jeeps, destined for use by the United States Marine Corps, with unique features specific only to this military model. The CJV35/U was designed for deep-water fording capabilities and had a snorkel ventilation system for the engine and other drivetrain components. One deviation from previous military contract vehicles is that no blackout lighting was provided. It had unique trim rings and bezels that extended forward of the lamps in lieu of blackout components.
