• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ5, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons

UPDATE: Seems there are still some jeeps here (at least, the ad is still up).

(08/06/2022) There could be something interesting here.


“I am selling a collection of various Jeeps, including Willy’s wagons/trucks, CJ2, CJ3, CJ5, CJ7. Most are complete, just have not been started, run or moved in a few years. Selling all to clear the land. Please message for phone number please as I will NOT do back-and-forth texting. Thank you for your help in that regard. I also have others ads up for vintage aluminum trailers, Mercedes, Studebakers and a few other vehicles from the 1950’s thru 1970’s. Pictures are but a sample of what is available.

1947 CJ-2A Lake Leelanau, MI **sold**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500.

Runs, but doesn’t shift into gear.

“If your looking at this add most likely you know a bit about these old jeeps and maybe even a bit about the Bantam trailer that goes with.
The Jeep runs but the transmission won’t go into gear, however it does roll so it’s not stuck in gear. It seems mostly original albeit some repairs done over the last 75 years. It needs attention at every point so it’s a good candidate for a restore I think. I’ve got a green title for it.
The trailer is an old Bantam with some repairs over the last 70+ years, new tires it appears but not title. Can issue a bill of sale if needed.
I’m keen to sell both as a combination but am willing to separate if one desires and the terms are agreeable.
If add is up I’ve got it, I’m wary of scammers.”
