      Its got the snorkel cut out on the hood, and looks like some sort of rectangular plate on the passenger side of the piece the hood's hinges are attached to. I believe the tailgate is original, all the coats of paint seem to match the rest of the jeep. The serial number plate is attached to the firewall on the driver's side. This is where I found the Tux serial number. It also doesn't have the right mounts for the split bench seat (found in the Tux). It also has the tool box under the passenger seat. Do you know about where the number would be stamped on the frame? I have the body off right now and haven't seen anything standing out. There are a few pics in my album.
      Thanks for the help

      There are features on the body that changed over time. The M38A1 is also very similar to the CJ5, but has some slightly different body features. Many things like windshield frames, tailgates etc are swapped by owners over the years, so it can make things dificult. Can you provide some examples of the body features that differ?

      Serial number for CJ5 is on the firewall plate (along with model), but is also stamped on the frame. With the serial number you can determine year (usually).

      Jeepfan,

      PM sent: Looks like a November 1965 build, so 1966 model. Congrats on owning a tux!
