Wow, John, this is a family treasure, what a history and legacy. Like your dad's Woolrich get-up, too! I wore Woolrich wool shirts and quilted pant liners under Levi jeans when I operated heavy equipment in the winter at northern Nevada.

Your CJ reminds me of our family's 1964 CJ5, bought new, which happened to be Spruce Tip Green. It had the heavy-duty optional T98A four-speed, draw bar hitch, Cutlass hubs and a Whitco soft top. 1/3 and 2/3 front seats were a rare option. The dealer installed a Jeep add-on heater and right side windshield wiper.
When the '64 burned a hole in a piston at 40K miles, my folks decided to sell the pristine vehicle to buy a new '70 Chevy K10 4x4 pickup. The Jeep was in terrific condition—except for the four-cylinder F-head engine with its "high altitude package" compression ratio. These vintage, lower speed engine designs were prone to piston damage from extended highway use. The folks' Jeep had been used primarily as a four-season commuting vehicle on the open highway. Had it been a CJ V-6 model, which was not available until model year 1966, that rig might still be in the family!

I took my first driver's license exam in the '64 CJ and drove the Jeep over the Rubicon Trail in the summer of 1967. My preference would have been to keep that Jeep in the family. Your family did the right thing here!

West Coast/high desert, rust is a non-issue. Vehicles with bare metal develop "surface rust" and no more. They can set out in the sagebrush for a century and still have restorable sheet metal...We're very lucky!
