$650 is too high of a price for that..... No windshield, tub looks bad, fenders are bad, I doubt the drive train is in decent shape. You could be looking at dumping thousands into it just to make it road safe.

The engine shown is either an AMC 232 or 258.

If it's a '72 - '75, it should have a flanged D44 rear axle. If it's '76 - '83, it should have a n AMC 20 splined rear axle.
Does the center of the rear wheel have a big nut (AMC 20) or a flat plate (D44)?
72-75...Can tell by the heater controls at bottom of the dash by gear shift...actually, may be 73-75...my 1972 didn't have the plastic cable retainer. It was all steel.

Nice to see ya Lynn!!

lynn CJ5, 72 - 83.
Hard to pin down from these pics.

Check the frame rails under the door. If the frame gets wider just behind the door, and front springs are 2" wide, then it is 76 - 83.
If the frame is the same width the whole way back, and the front springs are only 1.75" wide, then it is 72-75.

Big Sarge Trying to see if you all can help me identify what this Jeep is. I'm from the TJ forum and know enough about them just not too keen on the CJs. I'm guessing this is a CJ just have no clue what else. May have the chance to get it really cheap.
