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 .

“This classic flat fender was my fathers baby… I hate to let it go but we just don’t have room to keep it in the garage. (Always been kept in the garage) Completely restored with thousands of dollars in it. Runs great. Not trying to make money, just want it to go to someone who can really enjoy it. ”

(03/16/2016) Looks like a nice jeep. Has updated engine.
“Hello, We are selling our 1952 Willys Jeep. It has a GM Buick Dauntless V-6 engine and runs like a top. With overdrive box, lock-out hubs, all in great working condition. This vehicle is a real “head-turner”. You can hardly get fuel without someone coming up to talk about it with you. We have mounted a spare tire to the back since these photos were taken. All steel body with NO !! rust.
Driven approx 50 miles a year for the last ten years. Collectors plates. Top is in excellent shape. Get ready for the parade season with this Jeep. Please, no “low price” offers, this is truly a one of a kind.
“1950 Willys CJ3A Civilian Flatfender. 95% stock, Flathead 4 cyl. 4 wheel drive, stored for 20+ years, few new improvements, Koeniq “Tin Top”, half roll cage, Diamond Plate corners and steps. Willys ready for restoration back to original or modify to whatever level. Have more photos, send email address if serious restorer / collector / hunter.”
“Original 1952 CJ3A survivor Willys Jeep. Less than 10500 original miles. 3rd owner. This jeep was purchased new by a college in Northern California and spent most of its life on campus. This jeep still is the original Normandy Blue paint from the factory. The body is still the original steel body with zero rust.
I took the body off the frame and redid everything as far as the running gear goes. The motor is rebuilt, new pistons, cam, rings bearings, clutch, valves etc. New brakes, brake lines and seals. The tires are like new in the original size 15 inch.
It has an overdrive. It has never had seatbelts installed or a roll bar. I have the original rear step bumper for it that was dealer installed in 1952.
The jeep did not come with a heater but I have an original Harrison heater that needs to be restored ; it also has an original factory 6 volt heater switch.
It comes with a Koenig hardtop in pieces that need to be restored. I have a “Tight Steer” for the steering box that is not installed. It has cutlass pwr lock hubs on it and comes with a set of “Warn” summer hubs from the 50’s.
Seats have been redone to original and it still is 6 volt and has the foot starter. All original gauges and they work.

(03/29/2015) Has some unusual customizations. The Dash and windshield are both altered.
“Facts: Engine – Chevrolet 350, 3 speed w/ overdrive, winch, air compressor, 28 gallon gas tank, micro lock brake system, power steering, radio/c.b., 2.5″ body lift, 33″ tires, custom paint job. Custom everything around ever corner of the Jeep.
The gentleman whom I bought this Jeep from a year ago really did a fantastic job. He stripped it down and rebuilt it part by part while fabricating along the way. He was a true craftsman. It’s a head turner and random people will be asking you questions or giving you thumbs up on every drive you take. The straight pipes really sound amazing. Why am I selling it? There is too much going on in my life at the moment and I simplifying a bit.
If you’re interested or have questions, shoot me an email. No joy riders or bums. Bums with $ – ok!”
