The Kaiser Jeep gave birth to the idea that one could go out and explore America’s backcountry on a capable, 4-wheel-drive platform. This particular one, a 1966 Kaiser Jeep CJ5, is said to have undergone a frame-on restoration, including new paint and seats, though it’s not clear whether its 134-c.i., 4-cylinder Hurricane engine was serviced or rebuilt.The transmission is a 3-speed, manual.

The vehicle is located in Los Angeles and can be found on Expedition Portal. The asking price is $10,500.
