1955 CJ-5
This basic CJ-5 would have cost you $1,476 in 1955, and the front passenger seat, top, heater and rear seat were extra. Brandon Corwin restored his bare-bones '55 back to original "bare-bonesness." You can tell the year of the '55 and some of the '56 models by the shackles being at the rear of the front springs, like the MD model. This feature left the civvy rigs in 1953 in favor of the more familiar front-mounted shackle.
