In 1961, Kaiser was coming to the realization that it had an image problem. The broader masses believed the Jeep to be a great...vehicle — that is, if you needed to work on the farm, go hunting, or partake in some other industrious activity. To fix this "problem" they decided to introduce a new, more "upscale" version of the CJ-5. 1961, the Tuxedo Park was introduced as a trim package. It is widely believed that these trim packages (Tuxedo Park I, II and III) were offered between 1961-1963, and included chrome add-ons, along with an "Indian Ceramic" steering wheel (in place of the standard black). The seats also received an upgrade to "Black British Calf Grain Vinyl with Indian Ceramic Facings" (Trim Code L-29).

1964-1965 Kaiser promoted the Tuxedo Park as it's own separate model (Tuxedo Park Mark IV) for the CJ-5A and CJ-6A. The Tuxedo Park Mark IV included several options that set it apart from the standard Jeep®. These options included:

- Chrome front bumper
- Chrome hood badges
- Windshield clamp catch
- Chrome drop down license plate holder
- Chrome tail lamps
- Hubcap displaying the "Jeep" emblem

**VIN tag. The CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV has a prefix of "8322”

Unfortunately, this model never gained the popularity that was hoped for, and only approximately 1,987 of the CJ-5A models were ever produced, making them a rare find for those in the market. While these vehicles did not capture the undivided attention of the masses, they were a valid attempt at becoming something "more" than what Jeep® appeared to be in 1960, and opened the door for other models that were to come...

Tuxedos, like most other older CJ's found today, were modded and cut up by off-road enthusiasts, and they are becoming increasingly harder to find in stock-looking condition.

The Tuxedo Park model was intended to transform the public's image of the Universal Jeep from an exclusively work-oriented vehicle into one that was both sporty, fun-loving, and a bit classy; promising its owners the ability to take off to the beach or, just as easily, the mountains with the same level of competence and mobility the Jeep had become known for and follow it all up with lunch at the country club. Early advertising boasted of it being "the sportiest, most FUNctional car on the automotive scene”.

This seems to be the most sought after special CJ5 edition ever produced.
