    My intention with this thread is to attempt to gather some information on 1973 CJ5 Super Jeep by starting a repository for what information is available from past or present owners. Here is a map of data location on the tag. I borrowed the image below from a post by TimG.

    And a link to some photos and information about the blue Super Jeep in the Omix Ada collection with comment by Jim Allen.

    I'll start with mine

    My Super Jeep VIN.jpg

    And the dash. Note black bezel on oil pressure gauge. I thought nothing of it but saw another Super Jeep with same black bezel. Radio has AMC faceplate so either factory or dealer installed I suppose.

    While I have the vinyl dash pad, it is not mounted in this photo. It requires some repair, and I also need to find the wire spring clips that attach them to the windshield frame.

    No photo of the tag on this one, but VIN is J3F835TA56886 according to the add. This yellow appears brighter than mine. Even features protected from sunlight are not as bright. Maybe an effect of the photography. I'm not questioning the legitimacy, it looks like a Super Jeep to me.

    This is a good photo of the generic rubber flare material as opposed to the molded type that are common to all later models. I read somewhere that this was first Jeep from Toledo with flares, though I have read that these rubber flares were available as a dealer option. My jeep front and rear fender cutouts have a strap of steel welded to the edge to give a mounting point for the panel clips that were used to attach them. I do not know how dealers would have installed the flare material without this lip. Perhaps they were attached by screws through the sides of the fender edge rather than to the horizontal strap.

    This one was listed in 2014 as all-original with less than 4k miles, and was priced at $115k. Not sure what it actually sold for (or if it sold):

    There weren't any photos of the metal data tag, but here's the dash VIN sticker:
