Don will be spending the next month traveling through New Mexico and Colorado. Lucky for us, he’s watching for jeeps. He spotted this redone CJ-2A at a Larry H. Miller Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge Ram dealership in Albuquerque. I guess we’ll be stopping in there during our next visit!
Paul Pulver is an art director assembling a team to do a photoshoot near Quincy, Washington, at Frenchman’s Coulee (not far from me). Most of his team his flying in from Pennsylvania. As he explains below, he’d like to rent a 1970s jeep from someone in the region for the photo shoot. He’s offering $1000 for the day plus a night in a motel for the jeep owner. The photoshoot is August 19th. If you are interested, contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give me a call at 610-517-5496. He’ll probably request a photo that shows the rear of the vehicle with its top removed.
His client wants a shot from behind towards the front of the vehicle with the models inside. An illusion of movement will be created, though the vehicle won’t be moving. Here are a couple of stock photos (though the second doesn’t show movement) that provide a flavor of what he’s been asked to produce. The photos below show a 1960s Ford Bronco:
I mentioned that some people have had good experiences and some bad with photo shoot/movies. He explained, I’ve had too many experiences with directors and photographers asking models/talent to do stupid things. I don’t work with people like that. That won’t happen here — I promise you.
I also asked about why type of 1970s CJs or Full-Size Jeeps’ he was considering (and provided links as he’s not a jeep expert). Other than being a convertible, it could be anything from a Jeepster Command to a CJ-5, CJ-6, CJ-7 or CJ-3B. I think a stock Bronco (as pictured above) or another vintage 4×4 from the sixties might also interest Paul.
Here’ s the email Paul sent with the details.
To introduce myself, my name is Paul Pulver. I work as an Art Director for Film and Television, and I’m currently working on a still photo shoot for The Vanguard Group (they’re a financial group that is marketing to employees at Google) that we’re going to be doing at Frenchman’s Coulee in Washington State.
I’m looking to rent a good looking vintage Jeep for the shoot, and I came across your website (which is great, by the way…I’ve learned a lot!) and I thought I’d reach out to you and your readers. Continue reading
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.
Has a couple updated, but looks solid.
“I am selling my 1952 Willy’s Jeep with 225 V-6 engine. The jeep is in excellent shape and drive great! Please call or text and I will get back to you quickly. $8,500 OBO, CASH ONLY.”
Needs some work.
“Selling a 1943 WILLYS has a really nice rebuilt 1942 Ford F marked GPW engine runs and sounds like a Singer sewing machine f marked bellhousing and some other parts. We license this and drove all lights work including brake lights.
transmission is a t90 not the t84 original willys frame and 4×4 front and rear axle assembly original brake system I put all new wheel cylinders on it maybe brake pads had no brakes when I got it.
I went out and bought a hard top for it from Kentucky a cost of $600.00 you could sell it and use the money elsewhere. It fits nice with the later 46 windshield I have another split 46 windshield had no windshield
military tires and wheels the tub body needs restored it could be replaced with a reman or better tub.
have a set of F marked seat frames to go with it. correct restored oil canister and a few other wwii jeep items.
the frame is in great shape the front tips need replaced I would say it had a plow on it, it was light blue when I got it , I will throw in a plow for a willys as I have one. the gas tank has been removed and another type installed under the rear, the machinegun mount is still there.
when I got it and had the rear ends underneath the leaf springs they just need put back to original position. easy job This a great parts jeep or restore project this is real wwii the rare Ford GPW engine is worth quite a bit by itself.”
Shouldn’t last long.
“Mostly original. In my family for many years. Motor is very strong, body needs tlc. $3500 obo.”
UPDATE: Pics now provided.
“’62 DJ3A project with title. 90% complete (minus engine and radiator) but is a rough project. Original 4-lug suspension. I have a running L-134 but it isn’t included with the Jeep. I just trailered it from Missouri yesterday and haven’t cleaned it up to take pics yet.”
“This is a directly from my Grandfathers car collection. You are bidding on a 1958 Willy’s Jeep CJ-5 4×4. Includes a 4 cylinder OHV and manual transmission. Complete frame over restoration done in 2013. This Jeep was originally build for Douglas Aircraft California as an Airport Fire Fighting Vehicle. Very Rare as it’s only 1 of 6 that were ever made. 150 Gallon Water Tank + PTO Pump. The Jeep drives great and impossible to find in this condition. This vehicle is located in WI, buyer is responsible for the transport of the vehicle once the auction is won.”
Jim spotted this nice looking CJ-5. It may be in better condition than when it came from the factory. It isn’t a 100% accurate restoration, as the windshield is definitely a later model, but it looks good. Lots of photos provided.
“This Jeep has been completely redone from the ground up! It was rotisserie restored last year. The man who restored this truck was a Jeep expert from Georgia. He replaced the floor pans, the job was done perfectly. He used a later model windshield because the glass is larger and leans a little farther back. This Jeep was restored to the highest possible standards! The engine, transmission, transfer case and both axles have been rebuilt. Everything on this Jeep has been redone or replaced with new parts. The body is all steel and it runs and drives excellent. There are less than 500 miles on the build. The soft top is included.
The builder of this jeep (who isn’t the seller) had an unusual solution for the front driveline. Not sure why it is attached at all. The seller also provides full disclosure that it shouldn’t be driven faster than 55mph.
The web server was down last night, so I didn’t get a chance to finish updates. They should all be up by noon EST / 9am PST and this message will disappear. Thanks!

“I have a 1953 Willy’s Panel Wagon for sale. It is a rolling chassis only, with no title, engine, or trans.
Body is in great shape, with only two problem areas, the area around the gas cap, and the bent up sheet metal under the back doors. Other rust is surface rust only.

(04/30/2015) It’s a project.
“1965 Jeep Willys DJ3 for sale.
Manual 3-speed transmission.
Have a Super Hurricane Engine that I’m willing to let go of with the purchase.
Lots of parts.
Stripped down to bare metal, ready for paint.
New Bell Housing
New tires, never used.
Perfect base for a perfect Jeep. Custom. ”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(04/05/2015) Has many updates.
“You feel that… its Summer right around the corner. Tired of being left behind on the trails? Getting no looks driving around in your weak rig? Looking to make strangers come talk to you. Well, maybe the last part isn’t too go. But it happens when you are driving a rig that NO-ONE else has.
For sale is my 1953 Willys CJ3B.
Very cool “high hood” that has a lot of new and old going for it.
Sadly, I just don’t have the time to drive it anymore. The price is firm at $6k. I have far, FAR more in it, but it is time for me to move on.
The car is a solid driver, a beast off road and runs like clock-work- but I will note, it does need a new head-gasket (price is adjusted to reflect repair)
Here are the specks and pics- let me know if you are interested and we can arrange viewing / test drive / etc.
UPDATE:Price dropped to $2350.
“For sale is a very complete and very restoreable 48 cj2a. I bought this as a project to hopefully do with some local youngsters as their first project, but it seems that interests have changed and they are not interested in it any more . . . This jeep is a fantastic restoration candidate because of how complete it is. Original engine and running gear, and many of the parts that are usually gone are still here. Engine does not run. PO removed the head and reported a stuck valve . . . so I would count on doing some engine work . . . it does turn over freely, so I would guess just minor work needed. Transmission and transfer case shift fine. It was “barn kept” for many many years and, although there is rust thru in the usual spots, it is much, much better then most I have seen and at a much better starting point then the one I restored . . . . if you are looking for an early jeep project, then this is definitely one to look at . . . . I am not interested in low ballers or scams, I know that I can easily net my asking price by parting it out, and am perfectly willing and able to do that . . . but if someone whats to take it all at once to fix it up, then that’s my preference!!”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(06/26/2015) Has some dents in the front clip. Could use some paint. Looks pretty stock.
“1962 Jeep cj6. Rebuilt f-Head 4 cylinder with paperwork. Front brakes all new including master cylinder. New exhaust. Lights work including turn signals. Wiring is clean and correct. Koenig all steel cab. All Drivetrain fluids flushed and refilled. New spring bushings and shocks. Knuckle seals replaced. Heater works great. This is a great jeep that runs excellent and drives down the road good. ”
UPDATE: Was $10,000. Now no Price.
(06/10/2015) Seller has a Gladiator camper for sale.
“All original numbers matching CJ2A runs if you pour gas down carb. Needs fuel tank cleaned out. Has clear title and five brand new tires.
I won’t ship this item nor Will I take overpayments to pay shipping company’s. If you want it shipped you make and pay all plans for pickup.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(06/24/2015) Some daylight pics would be a little more helpful
“IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL! YOU FOUND IT.
RUNS GREAT, DRIVES GREAT, LOOKS GREAT. ORIGINAL MILITARY ISSUED WILLY’S JEEP, HARD TO FIND IN THIS CONDITION. PLEASE CALL IF INTERESTED.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
I have an unknown year M38 for sale. It runs and drives very well. It has the tool box under the passage seat and is fairly clean. Fuel tank has been pulled and cleaned out so no corrosion is inside. I’m asking $5,000 as they were only made from 1950-1952. It has three shifter knob’s and the air breather cut out in the hood.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(02/07/2015) Still needs some work.
“1953 Willys CJ3B, rare / unique High Hood model jeep. Body is very good. Frame is very good. On road / off road hobby project. Don’t call expecting perfection, this is a work in progress. Have completed lot’s of work to it. 302 V-8 engine runs, but not roadworthy at this stage. Three speed transmission ( I have a lead on an automatic to swap in if I keep it), dual exhaust, headers. Lock-out hubs. Tires are there, but not very good. (I have a very good set of Thornbird 35×14.50×15’s for sale, $1000.00, OBO). Overall, jeep needs little more TLC. No top, no doors.
New parts: brake shoes, wheel cylinders, some brake lines, thermostat, headlights,Optima Red Top battery, Champion 9500 lb. winch (never been used, period), with wired remote.
Racing seats installed. Rhino liner applied to interior. Floorboards cut out and replaced.
Buyer could take the jeep body off and replace it with an early Bronco body, which would probably double it’s value, then sell the jeep body or put it on a jeep frame.”
