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 .

I really like this one. I think it could make a good project jeep. Looks like it has the white pointer 0-9 speedo. I just happen to have a NOS one of those …
“Neat project for somebody. Old CJ-5 was used in an orchard for years, so it has dings and dents. Missing passenger seat and windshield frame, has NOT run in years but it turns over fine. Pretty rare to find a Jeep project this old with original paint and all five original wheels. Still has the F head 4 cyl. and the floors & tub seem very solid.”
“This is the ultimate Jeep survivor!! It has everything you may want for an outstanding Jeep CJ for any collection. The Jeep was owned by a Willis Jeep Dealer in Indianapolis. It still has the statement of origin or manufactured. It still has the dealer cost sheet. It has 12623 original miles.
It still has the original tube tires. Original paint, top (in bad condition), seats, accessories, hoses, belts, floor mats. Tho only thing that has changed is the shocks, gas cap and clutch. I have owned the Jeep for 20 years. I was going to use it, but realized how special it was and didn’t touch it except for special occasions. I have only put 20 miles on it in the last 3 years. I got it out last night to take pictures and it started right up. I Also have the Willys parts pages for the model. There is a few surface rust spots, one on the tail (pictured) and driver/passenger floor pan. This jeep really deserves a museum or display collection. I have plenty of other photos if needed.”
Looks like a Kelly hardtop. I love the “mother and daughter snow removal” on the door. Has some rust issues.
“This classic Jeep CJ spent much of its life used for plowing snow and stored in a barn. We believe it has had 2-3 owners and the miles appear to be original. Please check out the DOT codes on the tires. You will see that they are November of 1972. It includes the Western plow and controls, as well as the hard top and doors. It was stored in Southeast WI and is a fairly complete vehicle. It is in need of a complete restoration as you can see. Please scroll down and enjoy the 250+ photos.”
“My 1956 Willys CJ5 has a great history. It was a one owner, garaged Jeep for 57 years; meticulously maintained by professionals, and was basically a “City Jeep”. The Jeep has 102k miles. It is an older restoration in time but not miles: including all running gear, body, paint, suspension, seats, and is in great condition. It runs, starts, drives, stops, looks and handles great. The Jeep has new tires and rims ($750) with only 100 miles on them .
I have receipts for the extensive work done, going back to 1963. It has the rare Kayline softtop with doors and frame, in good condition. The dash is also uncut. The miles will increase slightly, as I drive the Jeep. Records, paperwork and spare parts come with the Jeep.
Looks in good shape. Hardtop looks good (sears deluxe?).
“Very Solid 1955 Willys Jeep CJ5. No rust at all. Great running 4 cylinder 3 speed. 1959 F head engine, rebuilt carb, 1967 big brake axles with 3.73 gear. new seats, floor mat, speedo and gauges. New tires. Excellent trail or hunting rig. Good Arizona title in my name”
“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.”
“This is a CJ-5 Silver Anniversary Edition which was offered by the Jeep Corporation to commemorate 25 years of the first CJ-5 introduced by Willy’s Motors.
The Silver Anniversary CJ-5 featured special Quick Silver paint not found on any other Jeep vehicles, chrome spoked style wheels, a black vinyl soft top, Renegade stripes in special silver tones, seats trimmed in black vinyl with silver thread contrast stitching, silver buttons, and a unique 25th anniversary crest (Dashboard plaque)

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 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 email@example.com. 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”
