1965 Jeep CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV
An “upscale” Jeep was named after the upscale Tuxedo Park in New York, which was the birthplace of the tuxedo. Elvis drove a similar Jeep in the 1965 movie “Tickle Me” which also starred Julie Adams. Tuxedo Park Jeeps were also driven in President Lyndon Johnson’s inaugural parade in January, 1965.
This special edition Jeep came standard with chrome bumpers, wheel covers, column shift, fold-down rear license plate, fold-down windshield, and a little more highway-friendly rear gear. Standard running gear is a 4-cylinder engine and 3-Speed manual transmission. Optional equipment on this one includes the surrey interior & top, 4-Wheel-drive, and “full” passenger seat. It has been retrofitted with seat belts for safety. Just like Elvis’ Tuxedo Park, this one is finished in Marlin Blue.
This gorgeous Carolina example is free of rust and has had a recent cosmetic restoration. It is showing 30K miles and that is believed to be original as documented by some 15-years of inspection receipts. Also included are the original owner’s manual, sales brochure, and the model that was made in tribute to Elvis’ movie. It also includes a cover for the surrey top as well as a full top and doors. It runs and drives as it should and is very dependable.
