The Legendary 462

Kaiser saw the sales of the Jeep slip in the 60s and was wanting to cash in on the muscle car trend with the CJ5. They made a special version they called the 462. It was a step to improve the reputation of the jeep among the off road and sports crowd.
So in 1969 they produced a limited number of the 462
It is thought these were for a press release party and not much is known about what happened to these Jeeps
upgrades were larger wider off road tires, the V6 Dauntless, extra gauges, a hood stripe and a roll bar.
All these are not much by today's standards but in 1969 they lit the Press up.
Also included in this were bucket seats and a rear seat, heavy duty oil pan skid plate, rear swing out tire carrier, full wheel covers, (hub Caps) padded visors and padded dash, heavy duty frame and springs and a locking differential.
with these additions in mind the next year Jeep released the first of the Renegade packages and the rest is history.

This Jeep is so rare I have found it difficult to find a picture of it online to post here.
