'67 Jeep CJ-5

Hey everybody, 

One of my main projects right now is this CJ-5. It started out as AMT's Dukes of Hazard Daisy's Jeep. The kit represents a late 50s to late 60s Jeep CJ-5. (Pls correct me if I'm wrong) and doesn't get near to the model that was shown on the TV show. But that doesn't matter cuz I never intended to build that Jeep anyways.

As far as I know there have been several versions of this kit since it's release and I decided that mine is going to be a '67 that has been rebuild just recently. So all new paint and an couple of other goodies. I did a spring over axle lift but the rest is basically stock.

This is where I'm at right now.

Thanks for looking

Thx I enjoy building these old kits 

The driveshafts had to be lengthened due to the lift

This is what the 4 cylinder engine looks like so far. Still need to add the distributor, carburator and other small details. Currently waiting for parts to arrive in the mail;)

Nice job so far, like the color and the lift looks great. 

You are correct that the kit has been around for years, I have an original MPC version of this kit with the V-6 engine and snow plow, and it builds nicely.
