“1942 Willys-Overland – $22,000
Plain and Simple: You will not find one as clean and mechanically sound as this one. 50 caliber gun mount still there. Fully street legal and fully tagged, ready for anything you want to throw at it. Customized for Off Road, however drives great on road. Virtually every mechanical part is brand new. I have invested approximately $30,000 of which I have all the receipts for. Work was either professionally performed or brand new mechanical parts meticulously installed with new gaskets and proper torque settings. Looks great in pictures and even better in person. I am selling because I don’t have the time to use it and it is taking up needed space in garage. Stored in garage every day since ownership. It has been on the Rubicon Trail 3 times with ease, never sustaining any damage, getting stuck, or need for winch. Below is a sample of the upgrades/mods that were performed:

    Looks like seller served in Afghanistan: OEF = Operation Enduring Freedom.
    If you have to modify a WWII jeep, you might as well do it as nice as this one 🙂

    The tub looks stretched in the door area. I would say it is a new tub based on the dash. It has a bump where someone could drill a hole and install a governor operator.

    It drives me crazy when an otherwise great Jeep has wiring with crimp connectors dangling for $20G.
