https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/d/athol-1946-jeep-cj2a-custom-one-owner/7030708047.html

“Bought this Jeep new. Kept a few things original. It is one of a kind. In 2010 took it off the road, took the 350 out and bought a new 350 4 Bolt Main and ripped it down. Every nut, bolt, gasket and more… and was built by a Chevy master mechanic of 38 years. Everything was done from the heads, lifters, cam, new transfer case, rear end, 411 gears, way too much to list all of the work done. Invested over $20,000 between 2010-2014 and another $15,000 between 2015-2018. Top of the line parts put in it over the years. Money was no issue when it came to building this Jeep. Once you see it, you will know it’s a one of a kind. It was set up to race eighth mile or quarter mile, dunes or track but it still has never been raced. It is street legal. For the past 40 years it has never been driven in the snow or rain. This Jeep is over 70 years old. Never find another one like it! Asking $16,500 or best offer. Open to SUV trade of same value or partial cash payment. I am on older gentleman so please no late calls. To avoid scams I will not answer any texts, I’d rather speak to a person!”

“Here’s a nice family owned CJ 2 that has good structure mainly due to being inside a garage for a long time. The engine was pulled for a rebuild and that’s where it sat until I acquired it. The parts Jeep has had a little ruffer life passing thru many hands but appears to have a good engine in it as the previous owner was still making up grades to it. It was and still is holding antifreeze in it so I sure the motor is still good. Have a title as well…….

1975 CJ-5 Bitely, MI eBay

UPDATE: Back on eBay.

This odd duck looks like a combination of a CJ-5 and a Topeka Hiway Mower. It’s a no reserve auction with a starting price of $2695.

View all the information on Ebay

It started life as a 1975 Jeep CJ5 Chassis. As near as we can tell, it was converted when new into a street-sweeper by the PB Loader company (which is still in existence today). Sometime later in life, someone got the bright idea to remove the street sweeper broom and replace it with a 62 inch quick attach skid-steer style snowblower (Ford 715 Model). We understand that the PB loader company made a similar model for airport tug use.
