This is my 1967 Swiss Army CJ-5. My father rode in a Dodge und a Willys MB in 1945 as a 9 year old boy with US soldiers in my village! I received a jerry can when I turned 8 years old from my father from the 26th Infantry Division. They liberated our village, I cherish the jerry can. I told him I would buy a Jeep of my very own….. and after 38 years I bought my ex Swiss CJ-5! I love to ride in the Jeep all over! It’s a great car…. I love all aircraft, especially the Warbird. I have flown on a P51D Mustang, on a F4U4 Corsair, B25J Mitchel, AH1 Cobra, Yak 11 etc…. I tell: Ride with my Jeep is the same as flying in a MUSTANG!!! PS I did restore the undercarriage and engine, but the body is original… only white stars and USAF numbers are from an M38A1 from Vietnam airport.
