This is the April 7, 1955 “Junior Issue.” It is filled with 10 mimeographed pages of school news. This publication measures 8 1/2 by 11 inches and is in very good condition.

1965? CJ-5 Scott Township, PA $700

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $700.

(12/04/2017) The serial number suggests this is a 1965. It looks to have a Kelly hardtop with Meyer doors?

“I just bought this at an auction last week without a title. It has been sitting a long time. Plate says 1971. Don’t know much about these old jeeps. Please try to figure out model/year etc. from firewall tag. I do not know. The engine seems seized. The floors are rotted & patched but frame & body mounts look very good. The plow set up is bolted on the frame & looks good too. The blade is rotted above cutting blade (but still useable). I have the rear tire chains too. I don’t want to part this out, but I will if it doesn’t sell soon. Just looking for something to plow around my lot. I do not want to have to rebuild the engine.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/10/2017) “For Sale: 1949 Willys CJ2A. Excellent Restoration Project Candidate.
Original, un-modified, un-changed from OEM configuration. Colorado Title.
L134 original motor, Split windshield. Rolling on a set of OEM Jeep 15 inch by 4.5 steel rims
No back seat.
Running and driving two years ago. Needs gone through.
Complete, less oil bath air filter.
History: This jeep was in one family for over 20 years. Five years ago Grandpa developed dementia. Two years ago he began taking things apart for no apparent reason. Unfortunately this was the case with the Jeep. Grandpa has passed and family moving. I bought the jeep and put it back together with what was there and what I could scrounge. This is a nice little jeep, a solid, good starter for father and son, father-daughter project. Motor turns freely and crystal clear oil came out of motor. Clean green coolant was in the radiator. This could be a terrific ranch or hunting jeep, or get it back on the road.
First $2,400 CASH OR CASH WITH MAN TRADE ITEM(S) TAKES IT! I am looking for a Snap On top and bottom box, tools, home protection and hunting items always a plus.”
