    The Oldest Jeep You have ever owned

    The Oldest jeep I have ever owned was a 1961 Wagoneer with the single pain glass panel in the back. My Dad bought it new and it ended up in my older brothers hands. When my brother sold it to me it had a 350 chevy engine in it and tilt steering well plus it was running on propane gas.. ya my Dad converted gas engines over to propane. anyway thats the oldest Jeep I have owned. Whats your oldest Jeep ?

    Re: The Oldest Jeep You have ever owned

    My first Jeep was a 1959 CJ5 with the Hurricane 4 banger that just would not die! It was 9 years old when I bought it with its snowplow for $600 from a gas station owner in Cleveland, OH. And made that back and more the first winter. That was my high school winter job... It fit nicely with a sports schedule! Boy, I sure wish I still had it, but after about 3 years it give in to the rust. Pieced it out and put the money down on a brand new 1969 CJ5. Ultimately, I've had 3 CJ5's, a 1995 Grand Cherokee Ltd, and currently a 1986 CJ7. And, I've loved them all!

    Bought a 1958 CJ5 in the early 2000s...used it as a daily driver for about 3 years, put a snow plow on it & plowed drives for friends & family. It had an odd fire V6 from a "66 or "67 & parts from various & sundry other years but the title said 1958. That thing would start in any weather every time.

    Wagoneers weren't sold until 1963. I have a '61 Willys wagon and it's the oldest Jeep I've owned. Used to have a '62 wagon for years.

    I've owned a 1980 CJ5 as well as a 1980 Grand Wagoneer.

    That CJ5 was a rolling death trap by the time I got it. 3 inch body lift and rust for days...

    sweet! my dad used to tell me about a willys wagon he had s his first car, I don't remember the year. He got it for free then paid $25 for an engine. It was long gone by the time I appeared (I'm 52). I wish I could've seen it
