    Can you post a photo of the Serial Number plate, that would help us get an idea of about when.

    Here is an article that gives a lot of information on serial (not VIN) numbers:

    My best interpretation of 8305 xxx 217502 is:

    83: CJ-5

    05: Open Body

    xxx: Three digits for options you do not have

    178463: Sequential serial number

    Most likely you have a mid-year 1965 CJ-5.
