My grandfather bought this Willy’s CJ-5 in 1963 as a utility vehicle for his property in Mattituck, Long Island. Down to the beach, through the corn fields and into town, this little red powerhouse would carry my grandparents, my mother and aunts as they moved on from the big family house. When I was a young kid in the mid 1970s I drove my first few feet (on my dad’s lap) behind her wheel, coming to a stop on top of a fence. No harm done.
