    Best bet is try to find #'s on the frame.

    Try a '69 body, w/ a Commando VIN and a 198 V6. ;)

    Man that would suck...and I thought I had it bad with a '62 frame, 70's tub and a CJ3B title with a bad VIN. Comando just doesn't fit at all,lol. :rofl:

    Looks like you were 26 places behind me, eh? :p
    Mine is titled as a '70 CJ5 also but it almost looks like she was built in '69.

    It's on the firewall on the driver's side. Looks like any other VIN tag I've seen. Nothing fancy, just a stamped Aluminum tag.

    Re: VIN Numbers

    Wow this is so cool my thread is now a sticky...woo hoo! Thanks Sparky. I know where the vin plate is and goes, I just want to get an exact reproduction plate for my new tub. Im thinking it said Jeep at the top and Willys at the bottom. I just wanted a pic so I get exactly what its suppose to have, since I finally know what my vin # is suppose to be now. Boyink sent a pic but that was for his kaiser. I am looking for a willys tag for around 1962.

    1959 #'s: 82878 thru 97918, looks like a '59 number, but could have licensed and sold as a '60.:hurrican:

    We could use a registry page like this:
    http://search.netscape.com/ns/boomf...t=1&remove_url=http://www.m38a1.ca/m38a1.html

    to keep this all straight. I for one would like to know how many of the early cj5's have survived.
