Bill Bonham’s 1973 Jeep CJ-5

Bill Bonham’s 1973 Jeep CJ-5 is a beautiful restoration.  The Jeep is in near original condition with only a few minor alterations.  Since we have a soft spot for clean old CJ’s we had to take some time to give this Jeep some proper attention.


Bill’s spec sheet on his Jeep

The Red Pearl painted Jeep was restored using many new old stock components, which Bill was kind enough to list on his information packet about his Jeep.  Included in the packet were some other interesting documents like the original sales orders and spec sheets. See below.

Bill’s Jeep is equipped with the following.

  • AMC 304 V8
  • 3 speed manual transmission
  • Dana model 20 transfer case
  • 35″ BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires
