the CJ's are pretty small compared to TJs and JKs. Some people do take Suzuki Samuri's and make it a mini-jeep clone. I remember seeing someone post a jeep kit car that was smaller than normal too. So they're out there, just generally not the real thing.

Jeep production is pretty well documented. The flatfenders were 80", later CJ5s were 81" (84" after the '71 model year).

I suspect your stepson may be thinking of the Mighty Mite, M422, a 65" and 71" wheelbase vehicle... manufactured by American Motors from 1958 - 1962, well before AMC bought Kaiser/Jeep Corp in Feb 1970.
