    Welcome to Jeepz.com. That CJ looks like a fun project.

    I see there are two heaters on ebay right now:
    Heater Box Assembly, 1965-1975 Jeep CJ3, CJ5 = USED = | eBay

    and

    Early Jeep Heater Box Assembly, CJ3, CJ5 (Pre-1976) = USED = | eBay

    Wow! Cool project, those are rare. I've seen stuff listed for Tuxedo Park Jeeps under "rare AMC " or rare jeep.

    The 60-40 seats are very rare but are seen for sale once in a while. I may have some springs from an old seat. I'll check and let you know.

    Wow, that looks like a big project. Looks like fun though. I've never heard of a Tuxedo park edition, I've got to google that one. Why does the frame stick out so far in the front?

    Re: 1967 Jeep Tuxedo park

    Wow again. That's a pretty rare one.

    Is it a trim package, a CJ-5, or a CJ-6? Well, the answer is yes!In 1961, Kaiser was coming to the realization that it had an image problem. The broader masses believed the Jeep to be a great…vehicle — that is, if you needed to work on the farm, go hunting, or partake in some other industrious activity. To fix this “problem” they decided to introduce a new, more “upscale” version of the CJ-5. So…in 1961, the Tuxedo Park was introduced as a trim package. It is widely believed that these trim packages (Tuxedo Park I, II and III) were offered between 1961-1963, and included chrome add-ons, along with an “Indian Ceramic” steering wheel (in place of the standard black). The seats also received an upgrade to “Black British Calf Grain Vinyl with Indian Ceramic Facings” (Trim Code L-29).
    In 1964, Kaiser promoted the Tuxedo Park as it’s own separate model (Tuxedo Park Mark IV) for the CJ-5A and CJ-6A. The Tuxedo Park Mark IV included several options that set it apart from the standard Jeep®. These options included:
    - Chrome front bumper
    - Chrome hood badges
    - Windshield clamp catch
    - Chrome drop down license plate holder
    - Chrome tail lamps
    - Hubcap displaying the “Jeep” emblem
    - Column shift

    **If you suspect you may have one of these models, check the prefix of your vehicle’s VIN tag. The CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV has a prefix of “8322″, while the CJ-6A Tuxedo Park Mark IV has a prefix of “8422″.
    Unfortunately, this model never gained the popularity that was hoped for, and only approximately 460 of the CJ-6A models were ever produced, making them a rare find for those in the market. If you have a Tuxedo Park Mark IV, it is much more likely that yours is one of the CJ-5A models. While these vehicles did not capture the undivided attention of the masses, they were a valid attempt at becoming something “more” than what Jeep® appeared to be in 1960, and opened the door for other models that were to come…

    The Tuxedo Park is a trim level. There is nothing mechanically different from a standard CJ5 except the column shifter. Get a standard CJ5 mechanics manual from www.kaiserwillys.com .

    A restored CJ is a thing of beauty . You have done one a wonderful job and I'm happy that another CJ is running and saved from the crusher . I respect anyone who gone the length you have to save and restore one. Looking forward to many pics upon completion to grace the pages of jeepz.com . Thanks for your update .
    Never overlook the obvious . It's usually right in front of us
