A 1954 CJ5 as found in Brownwood, Texas summer of 2002

Here is a 1954 titled CJ5 located in Brownwood, Texas.  The data plate was intact showing a serial number of 57548 23762.  

However, there are several modifications that had been made to this unit, but nothing too severe.  There are many attributes of this vintage CJ5 that came directly from the M38A1.  Since this was the first production year of the CJ5, it's amazing to see the similarities.  Other than the minor modifications listed, this is a pretty nice example of a 'on the road daily driver' early CJ5.
