    I found this CJ = March 1973 Sunset Orange Krate at a yard sale probably around 2002.
    It looks as though it was not ridden much. OEM tires look like new.
    The one year only Original paint is flawless. Sunset paint would tend to fade and turn chalky if in the sun to much.
    The darker seat is also a one year only color to match the bike paint.

    Very glad to still see you are still at it!
