The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .
“1961 willys cj5
– kelly all steel bonanza II cab in great shape rare in this part of the U.S.
– the body shows its age and has had patch work done and the gentleman who had it obviously loved it and kept documentation from when he purchased it in 1964.
– front and rear diff recently replaced
– motor and trans in great shape, shifts and drives great for 55 years old. Last registered in Tenessee in 2016, needs a few things to be done to pass inspection nothing expensive or mechanical. I’m currently working on them so your able to get it running down the road ASAP.
Cash is the only way your gonna have wiggle room to negotiate, other classic auto for trade or O/U shot gun. I don’t need or want anything else. Making room to appease my wife, But not in a hurry to sell send an email and if your not from another country your more then welcome to come see it.”
Listed as a 1958, the VIN indicates it is a late 1960 stock CJ-5 that includes 2/3 1/3 front seats and a ventilating windshield. Look slick it would be a great restoration project.
“Fun old jeep, ran when parked approx 3 yrs ago. Not 100% sure about the year. Needs plugs, wires and battery at a minimum. Motor turns freely by hand. Gorgeous patina on this unique slice of jeep history. $1500 OBO. No papers. Come and get her!”
“This is a super nice 1959 Willys Jeep CJ5. It’s been sitting in a garage for 20 years. It’s had the same owner since 1960. It’s all original with original motor and 2 sets of wheels. Very rare in this un molested condition. Has original black plates.”

UPDATE: I believe this was purchased in 2015 and is now being resold on eBay.
(12/03/2015) Nice looking Tux.
“If you are looking at this ad you probably know more about this Model CJ5 than I do.
Original body and paint, rust free classic vintage Jeep !
This is a collector quality ride which will appreciate in value !
The Tuxedo Park Mark IV is a rare model with several unique upgrades such as a factory overdrive transmission. Research this model more information.
I put a deposit down on it and only took possession of it recently. During this time I also put an offer in on a house, bought a 1951 GMC, a 1997 GMC and now I have too many vehicles and am passing this unique rare Jeep on.
I have only driven it about a mile total.
It does need some tuning and tinkering like most vehicle of this vintage. The winch is dated 1965 as well but I have not tried it.
It starts right up and goes through all gears. Parking brake cable is stuck.
Mileage is unknown, estimated by previous owner at 30k
It comes with a tow bar, so this jeep was probably towed behind a motorhome at one time.
Sold as is. Personal inspection is welcome
I paid $8500 , offered at $7500”
“White jeep Tuxedo park all original except repaint . 4 cyl. 3speed 23k orig. miles and runs like it .Excellent steering , clutch , transmission and brakes . Perfect straight body and floors. Good chrome orig. upholstery and all rare tuxedo park stuff very good period correct top in black , new white wall tires , registered and inspected . This jeep is not perfect but close , $ 10 k or best offer . ”
“This Jeep has sat in a climate controlled warehouse, fully mothballed and covered, since about 1981. It’s an original California car, originally owned by Jess Rodman, owner of Rodman Chevrolet in Fresno, way back in the 1950’s and 60’s. The Rodman family also developed their ranch into what we now know as Sunnyside. This was his “ranch toy”, and it rarely went anywhere. When he was too sick to work, he sold the dealership to Gene Ford, who re-named it Frontier Chevrolet. This Willys Jeep came in the package. It pretty much got put away and never taken out again. It has 8,500 (eighty five HUNDRED) miles and is in unbelievably complete original condition.
Mr Ford’s estate finally decided to sell the entire Gene Ford classic car collection, including this pristine Willys. My job was to get it out of storage and totally drivable, and to keep it as completely original as possible. Three plus decades of sitting had taken their toll on the accessories. Had to replace the water pump, fuel pump, all the brake hydraulics, battery, starter (repair), Pack wheel bearings, change oil, replace plugs, flush and refill the engine oil (straight 30 weight is called for…that’s what we put in), filters, flushed the cooling system and flush and repair the fuel tank. We aired up those perfect “time capsule” bias ply tube type off road tires, fired it off, made some adjustments, and this Jeep drives absolutely as new. A video of the running Jeep is on YouTube. Click here:
Sell-a-Jeep TV put together this video of a mint CJ-5. The clip is narrated by George Baxter of Army Jeep Parts and filmed by Mark Smith’s son, Tom . If you are interested in buying the jeep, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Check out the dual spool winch!
Needs some back brakes adjusted, but looks like pretty stock.
“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. ”
This may be worth a look. Appears to have a little rust on the passenger side front fender (front lip).
“Have you ever wanted dad or grandfathers old Jeep. Well folks here is one great example of one.
The jeep has less than 55,000 lightly used miles. The body is in near perfect shape, floor pans, body support brackets and the rest is rust free. The engine is a 225 Buick V6, 3 speed transmission and has the Warn overdrive. There also is a PTO winch that works nice. Paint is not to bad, a little dulled by the sun. Jeep runs and drives, every thing functions as it should less the horn. The jeep did not come with a full top. We only have a bikini top. I have several options of full tops and soft top if you wish to has one on it. I love the openness of no top. Look at the pictures close, only call if your a buyer. Tire kicker and scammer need not waist our time. Post will be deleted when jeep has sold.”
(10/11/2015) “All steel, inline -4 engine. Kelly hard top. Older restoration, no rust,everything correct with this model year.Had all fluids changed and flushed.Now have small leak on pan.New battery and carb”
“1957 Willys Jeep A Trench. I am the owner and have the title. This is one of the rarest things I have ever seen. It has an Auburn trencher attachment which later became Ditch Witch. This Jeep has been sitting in a pole barn for at least 10 years! I pulled and flushed the gas tank , blew out the fuel lines and cleaned the carb. It fires up and runs good! It will need some brake work! It was originally a baby blue color. It was repainted nearly 15 years ago. There was some patching done on the floor boards at that time. I’m sure they also patched it elsewhere. The paint job is fair for its age. It has some paint bubbles on the right rear quarter The interior is pretty nice and it shows 7770 original miles. Tires have excellent tread but are weather cracked. If you have an interest I urge you to come and look at it !! I have a lot of pictures. More than I can show here. I will gladly send you more. What a unique piece of equipment to own.. It is a 1957 and is not perfect. But would make a awesome restoration project. Sold as is needing TLC! Engine runs great!”
Seller must sell quick. It appears to have an overdrive (not sure about the claimed PTO). It has a funky rear end carrier, too.
“I have a 1955 vintage willys cj5 for sale it has its original 4 cylinder engine with a 6 volt system with a PTO transmission. Also has low miles under 40,000 just need a nipple valve for the fuel pump then she will run perfectly. I’m moving must sell quick”
Mark restored this CJ-5. You can contact him at 702-296-8586 or email@example.com.

Maybe there’s a solid stock jeep here that just needs some cosmetics?
“This Willy has had only two owners its whole life and only has 64,719 original miles, mostly towed miles to hunt in other states! It is road worthy and ready, but prime for offroad use! It has a highly sought after Warn M8000 Winch.

(03/23/2016) Nice vintage CJ-5, though the tails lights don’t look stock. But, that’s trivial.
“1961 CJ-5 Bone Stock / Totally un-molested. F-Head 134 Hurricane 4 Cylinder / 3 Speed Transmission T 18 twin shift transfer case. Everything on the jeep works. Jeep has new springs and shocks, shackle nuts and bolts and Fresh a oil change.The heater even works, but will need the heater core replaced. It has a small drip. Hard top is in great condition, one of the best hard tops I have ever seen. As you can see from the pictures there is slight surface rust on the hard top, just scratches. The body is very straight. The jeep has always been kept in garage. The body has minor rust as you can see from the picture. At some point in its life the jeep received a matching sky blue second paint job. The passenger side floor board is the worst and will need to be fixed, but this a pretty simple job. Tires have good tread and I have a spare pair of studs.
I was thinking modifying this jeep, but I can’t bring myself to molest a Jeep this nice. It’s a true survivor It’s almost impossible to find a 55 year old CJ-5 in this condition. I’m looking for a Tuxedo Park Mark IV. Drive it home tomorrow or tow it with the tow bar. Bring a 2″ Ball. I drive this Jeep every weekend to Garage Sales. I bought it from the original owner with 34,000 miles. They put $2,000 worth of work into it in 2014. Water Pump, Battery, Radiator, Fuel Tank, New Carb, Fuel Line, New Fan Belt, Ignition, Starter, Etc. Etc. Etc. I also have pristine period correct collectors license plates I might throw in for the right price. I also have a Dana 30 front axle with discs and completely rebuilt and restored Ramsey PTO winch. I would have to adjust the price if you wanted me to include these too.
$6,000 OBO or trade for a Tuxedo Park Mark IV CJ5 or CJ6 I will give you cash to make up the balance if the Tuxedo Park if it’s really nice.”
(01/12/2016) This might make a good restoration. Or, just drive as is.
“Offering my 1956 Willy Jeep for sale. 11 years ago I picked up from the winery orchard and I am the second owner to restore it with many dreams but never happened. Due to my unforeseen circumstances, I have to let it go with the reasonable best offer. Staying in the garage for over 10 years, I rebuilt the carburetor, new electric fuel pump, gas hot tank, new distributor cap, plug and wires. Things need to be fixed are, part of the wiring for the head lights, brake lights, horn and minor wiring replacement on the voltage regulator and rust with hole on the passenger side panel. If the price is right I can rewire for you. Jeep runs well and you will be amazed how it drives.”

“This was my dads. He ordered it in 1965 in Phoenix. I have every paper since that day. I inherited it 19 years ago and have done my best to enjoy it and keep it as amazingly original as it has always been. It has 34K original miles, it has never had a tow hitch on it. He mostly pulled it behind his truck for hunting. I transport it on a trailer. 4 years ago I was afraid it might start to rust (I moved to Montana) so I painted it with concept paint in the original paint code (Indian ceramic). I haven’t hooked everything up since painting (like the wipers and heater, and) but I have EVERY PART.”
