This jeep has some unusual history. The engine and tranny are out of it. There is a video of the inauguration parade that shows a CJ-5 pulling a float at the 4:17 mark. http://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675034028_John-F-Kennedy%E2%80%99s-Inaugural-Parade_fireworks-in-the-sky_John-A-Volpe . There is a reference to them at the G503, too: http://g503.com/forums///////viewtopic.php?f=19&t=162217

This is a 1961 Willys CJ-5 with some history. Snow was predicted for the 1961 JFK inaugural parade and 2 Jeeps were commissioned to lead the parade and plow if necessary. This is one of the two Willys outfitted with snow plows that led the parade in Philadelphia (plaque on dash). I’m told the paint color was chosen to match Air Force One. After the parade the Jeeps were donated to a Philadelphia school. When they had served their purpose a school employee purchased this Jeep, and we bought it from the next owner who bought it from the school employee. You may have noticed the engine and drive train have been removed; this was the start of a restoration project that never went any further. Items that go with the Willys are: original drive train and engine, extra engine, PTO driven winch, snow plow and all other pertinent items for reassembly.
The dash plaque reads: THIS Jeep VEHICLE WAS AN OFFICIAL UNIT IN THE INAUGURAL PARADE HONORING THE 35TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY JANUARY 20, 1961

The paint job on this is unusual. The cammo even extends across the headlights. But the inside of this looks quite nice. The jeep may be in good shape.
“Call 906-341-3582 or e-mail for more info. Nice old jeep. Great shape.”
Here’s a neat old utility jeep.

This doesn’t run, but appears pretty solid and utilitarian.

(06/12/2012) For the price, it looks like a solid runabout jeep.

If the body is as solid as it looks, this might be a nice little jeep that needs just a little work.
“1957 WILLYS JEEP- I have had this jeep for about 6 years. I drove it about 1 year ago. The engine will turn over with a jummper cable. I took out the gas tank because it rusted a hole in it.
Price- $600.00 or your best offer

One runs and one is a parts vehicle.
“1957 CJ5 with 60 CJ5 parts vehicle. The 57 is mostly all original, with hardtop and Meyer snow plow. It runs great, drives, needs brakes. The plow works good, I have the cylinders to make it power angle. It has a clean title. The bad: the frame is toast. The body tub is rough. The 60 CJ5 is for parts, I don’t know if it runs or not. The frame is good and it has a usable body. No title. Also I have another hardtop just like the one on the 57 except it has swing open doors vs sliding doors. $1200.00 for everthing. Call me @ 443-350-3875 anytime. If I don’t answer leave a message and I will call right back.”
Glenn spotted this one. The paint is funky. The body looks good, best as I can see from the strange paint job. However, for only 8200 miles the engine compartment looks pretty filthy.
“1962 Willys Jeep. 8200 original miles! 4 Speed with working snow plow. Very little rust. I have owned since 1988 and prior to that it was stored in warehouse in NYC. $4900. No papers.”
Unclear if it runs, but looks pretty solid.

It runs and drives. Who needs brakes?
“1959 Willys jeep CJ5 runs and drives.brakes do not work. Fuel tank needs new gas line (gas tank is ok). JEEP HAS NO TITLE. 700 dollars.”
I think this has a rear PTO.

This looks real nice for the price.

“For sell as a set only, a restored 1956 Willys CJ-5 Jeep, plus a Bantam trailer (jeep trailer, civilian). They were restored at the same time, painted to match. Same tires and wheels. The Jeep has a metal half cab, (doors easily lift off for summer driving) Ramsey winch, Warn overdrive, heater, new hubs, custom rack on back to hold extra spare tire, gas can, hi-lift jack, and shovel.

Mark just posted this over at sellajeep.com.
“I have a mostly restored 1959 CJ5 for sale. I got to 95 percent complete with a total rebuild and was transferred overseas. I bought it as a 1963 model in 2003, but research on the matching ID tag, block, and frame serial numbers puts it in October of 1959. This Willys is mostly original with some upgrades, with no rust. F134 engine plus T90 transmission, stock front and rear drives – all rebuilt. The carburetor is a Solex (original rebuilt Carter YF included). Brakes were not completed and this is the primary reason that it is not roadworthy. Currently it is in storage in Huntsville, Alabama with no title or tags. I do not currently live near this Jeep so I will have to arrange travel for a showing.
Location: Huntsville, Alabama
It’s not running at the moment, but might not take much. It appears solid.
“1960 Willys Jeep body in great shape.only minor surface rust ,no rot 435 656 304eight 10am-10pm call only not running”
The paint on the driver’s side seems a little odd. This has the ventilated windshield, the 2/3 1/3 seat, and only 18,000 miles.
