1964 CJ-5 Argillite, KY $6400


Tom shared this one. It’s got some carpet on the floor, so unclear what condition the floor is in.

1956 CJ-5 McKinney, TX $7900


There’s a lot of early jeep here. The 0-8 KS speedo has the orange needle; I’m not sure why some are white and some are orange. This also has an early top that looks in good shape and a set of early, period correct even, Free-Lock hubs. It still has the reversed front shackles, too.


“Running, in need of minor TLC.. carburetor & tires. Truly all original just in need of a tune up. Serious inquiries only!”

1969 CJ-5 462 Overgaard, AZ No price


I don’t see enough info in the pic to verify the “462” claim, but I see no reason to doubt it either. It looks like the V6 emblem was painted over when this was repainted.

Original Buick odd fire 225 with manual 3 speed plus factory overdrive.
