This May 10, 1943, article from The Telegraph shares the news that New Hampshire kids raised enough money through stamp and bond sales to purchase 92 jeeps for the US Forces.

I am a professional mechanic and have owned and serviced vintage jeeps since 1965, when I got my first Cj2a. I have been bombing around my property and the neighborhood for a week and fixing everything that comes up. Now it is road or trail ready. I have 2 other vintage jeeps already so I will sell this one. I have a truck and trailer and can deliver it for you at low cost as I am about 100 miles from Colorado Springs. Email me, Fred, to give me a phone number and set up a time to come see it, or ask questions. I will call or text. Or we can email through craigslist, but if you are serious, we should probably talk.”
Looks like a good price.

“1964 Willys CJ5 Jeep 4X4, 4 cyl F-head, 3 sp trans, 2 sp transfer, Ramsey PTO driven winch. The speedo says 22,000 miles but its not an A title. New tires, Fuel/vacuum pump, carburetor, Cleaned the tank, new hoses and belt, tune up, blower motor, removed the front end and rebuilt it, all three seats recovered, lock out hubs. It came with and original Willys 1/2 cloth top with doors but it was trashed but I saved the hardware and the cloth if somebody can use it to make a pattern more power to them. This is a 50 mph vehicle. It is also about the most unmolested CJ I have ever seen. Have you ever seen one with the original tail lights? First for me. Still has the canvas on the tail gate chains. No rust, even in the hat channels. The bad is, whoever had a jerry can holder on the drivers side like on the pass side and they must of caught it on something and slightly damaged the body where it mounted (in pictures). It needs a replacement glove box insert ($20) and glove box door button which believe it or not is not easy to come by for an original one for a 1964. Also needs the back brakes adjusted, I don’t have a hub puller to inspect. Runs good, goes down the road good, everything works. I bought this to avoid firing up my diesel to run to the store around town. Comes with a tow bar and that same whoever had a trailer plug in the front for towing. ”
Looks in good shape.
“1958 Willy’s truck. Tucson vehicle. No rust. All original equipment. PTO winch. Super Hurricane 6 cyl engine, 3speed trans. Orig transfer case for the 4WD. Almost new tires. Runs and drives well. FWD works well. Haven’t used the PTO winch in years, but believe it’s fine too! Rare specimen vehicle. Interior needs to be reupholstered? Hate to sell! Must see to appreciate. $17,500 , open to offers.”
Has a few updates.
“Runs drives and stops great. Has the odd fire 225 V6 with original 3 speed. Warn overdrive. Warn 8k lb winch. Upgraded Saginaw steering gear. Drives like a modern jeep. It has plenty of power and is capable of highway speeds with the overdrive. I have a heavy duty swing out spare tire rack for the back with a matching spare. I also have the tow bar setup for the front. Clean Ky title in my name.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(08/08/2016) Might be a good price.

There might be a little rust around the door. No description provided.
Might have some parts value.
“Picked this up from a buddy who got it on a trade. Kind of rare 1955 willys M170 ambulance jeep used for the military. Very similar to a cj6 but the passenger side door area is wider than the driver side.Some were for stretchers, a spare tire and even a mounted gun… has a small block Chevy motor, not sure what trans or tcase, they’re just sitting in place, not sure if it runs or not, has a bunch of misc sbc parts, starter, extra intake, carb etc…had a cj6 best top soft top, frame is solid, body is pretty solid for the year. Has some rot in sections but all very repairable…there is a company that makes replacement pass side panels to make it to be like the cj6 so driver and pass sides match…front clip is just set in place, no windshield, 4″ springs on it, tires are shot, just rollers….would make for a cool off road rig or a great candidate for a full restoration which would bring in some big bucks. I have no time or motivation to work on it…I’d be interested in trades, off-road related stuff, 4wd utility quad, ford model a type sedan or coupe body………not sure a cash price, throw me some offers”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $2500.
(10/05/2016) Doesn’t run. It’s missing the steps.
“Willys cj-2a jeep with the L134 “Go Devil” motor. Motor is free but doesn’t run. Otherwise in good condition. 3000 obo.”
Looks like the tailgate has been eliminated, among other changes.
“1950 Jeep Willy’s M-38. Original “go devil” engine was rebuilt 300 miles ago along with a new clutch, new water pump, fuel tank, brake lines, new wheels, and 5000 lb winch.
Runs and drives great. Also has four wheel locking hubs and tow bar for towing. I have the convertible top frame and an extra front end that comes with the jeep.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(07/10/2015) “The ’53 has a brand new rag top, still in the box. Has a V8 engine. A Warn winch. A Warn over drive. A brand new windshield. A new poly gas tank. Has a Cadillac steering column. A Chevy steering box. A fully synchronized 3 speed transmission. Need some work to get it running.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(10/11/2016) It’s a column shift.
“Still titled Minnesota $2,500 I brought this home a couple months ago but now, Medical bills and no work, I’m being forced to sell. My loss your gain. Frame is Solid and jeep rolls anywhere you push it. It doesn’t run but motor does turn over. I had the starter rebuilt. So motor will turn freely when I put the battery cables to it. I did pull the head and intake and sprayed everything with marvel Mystery Oil to free up a couple of stuck valves that today now move freely also. The Motor is a L-head motor. Also this jeep has a column shift which also works. The floor is peppered but the rest of the body is in good shape. Need any other pics email would work best.”
