1957 CJ-5 Marshfield, WI $2000

“Unsure of mileage and year. Runs and plows, 4×4 works, tire chains, and no title. Will not part out! What you see is what you get. Serious buyers only!! Possibly trade for farm tractor in decent condition or hunting stuff plus cash.”

1959 CJ-5 Los Lunas, NM $3000


This appears to have an extra shift lever (probably an overdrive). It also has a Koenig bed extender and a Sears-style half-cab. There could be some value here.


“1959 Jeep Willy’s project, everything is there. Has a 6 cylinder engine that does not run but it isn’t seized up. 3 speed manual transmission, hi and low range shifter, four wheel drive shifter, and it has a pto lever for a winch on the front.

Some Jeep Slides on eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, DJ-3A, FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

Here are some slides with jeeps currently for sale on eBay. The first one is an unusual tour jeep that I hadn’t seen previously. It’s somewhere at least semi-tropical, based on the upper right tree.

1. Here’s an FC-170 setup as a tour jeep. It appears to include a bed-extension on the back.

2. This slide shows a yellow CJ-5 and a ticket office at Harney Peak Black Hills SD:

3. This next two slides share images from 1962 of a Maine Forest Service MB. This is slide one:

4. This is slide two:
year-maine-forest-serice-mb-25. And, finally, this slide shows a rare yellow DJ-3A used by the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce. I don’t have many vintage photos showing a DJ-3A in the original yellow color (though they do appear on several brochures).

1956 CJ-5 Maple Valley, WA $8500


This looks like a real nice rig. Note the clutch issue.


“1956 Willys Garage kept since 1991, Buick 231 V6, power steering, Power breaks, Hydraulic clutch, Stainless roll cage, 3 speed with Warn OD. Also has Warn 8,000lb winch, Warn Lock-O-Matic hubs, Spring over conversion, 11″ Gladiator breaks, Super Swamper’s (still new) centerline rims, 5:38 gears Posi traction front & rear and more. My jeep is spotless but hasn’t been driven in while due to health reasons. Because of not being driven much the rear main started leaking causing the clutch to glaze over, they will both need to be replaced, if I do it the price will go way up.”

1964 CJ-5 CT $4500


Matt’s selling this stock CJ-5. He wanted to give eWillys’ readers a first shot at it (thanks Matt!). This is sold with a bill of sale only, though it does have a serial number.



“Up for sale is my 1964 CJ5. This is a very original CJ5 that still wears its original president red paint. Odometer reads 2,900 miles. This Jeep came from the family of its original owner who used it as a runabout on his farm. It does not currently run but everything is there and it should run with a bit of work. I did open up the transmission to make sure everything was okay and it was like new inside. I believe it was parked in the 80s. Unfortunately it was parked in a damp part of the barn so the tub has a decent amount of rust. Front floors are completely rotted out including the toolbox floor. Rear floor and wheel wells have a few bad spots but are usable.

The rest of the jeep is in pretty good shape and the front fenders, hood, grille and windshield are very nice. Tailgate is nice too and still has the original 4 wheel drive stencil on it. Frame looks to be solid with just a little rot in the rear crossmember/bumper. 60/40 bench seat with original fabric. Tailgate chain covers are still intact. Really a time capsule of a CJ5. Nothing has been cut up or modified. This Jeep is perfect for someone who loves patina/original paint survivors and is willing to go through it mechanically, put some new front floors in it and enjoy it just the way it is. That was my plan but I just don’t have the time. Asking $4500. Sold with a bill of sale only. It does have a serial number. Located in Connecticut. Thank you”

Year? CJ-5 Trencher Salisbury, NC $2000


Mike spotted this cool find. It appears to be a 1957-1964, but maybe someone else can narrow it down a little more.


“50 – 60’s believe CJ 5 jeep with trencher. NO TITLE”

Year? CJ-5 Mahopac, NY $3300


John shared this CJ-5 with a Meyer-style half cab, a plow, and no paperwork. This one lacks the battery box lid (making it a 64 or later), but has a WILLYS tailgate (which was halted for 1963 models). My guess is that this is a mid-1960s CJ-5 to which someone added an older or replacement tailgate.


“1955 to 1971 Civilian Jeep CJ5 4×4 For Sale!
No Paperwork, Bill of Sale Only. Frame & suspension in good condition. Brand new brakes, brake line, wheel cylinders, wheel bearings, and shocks. Body in fair condition. Cab and doors excellent condition. Power angle plow 100% functional. Re-Built carburetor. Motor and clutch strong runner”

1966 CJ-5 Putnam Valley, NY $1000


This seems worth a look.Includes a Kelly Bonanza Top, a plow, new tires, and other parts.


“No title, can provide bill of sale. Antique compact jeep with working snow plow. My dad had it running but it needs some work, there is either a timing or distributor issue. Has a brand new carburetor, new tires, and new battery. No key ”

1963 CJ-5 Easton, PA $2600


UPDATE: Andy pointed out an unusual Ramsey data plate on this rig. Anyone seen another one like it?


Steve shared this running CJ-5 with a dual PTO and plow.

“1963 Jeep CJ5 old plow jeep. Runs and drives but has zero brakes. PA paperwork in hand. Rare Ramsey dual Outlet PTO for front and rear winches or Farm implements. Power take off does work. Jeep gas tank rotted out a few years ago. Is running off of a small tractor gas tank under the hood. Does need lots of metal work as there’s not much floor left. Frame seems solid. Plow works good.”

1976 CJ-5 Cave Creek, AZ $4500


Here’s a former Yakima Ridge Runners Jeep.


“This is a custom trail jeep sitting on 36″ super swampers. Not currently running but will turn over with a new battery. Was owned by my father and came into my possession after his passing. After some years I am ready to sell and make room in my garage”

1957 CJ-5 Sacramento, CA $2000


This appears to include a Warn OD.


“1957 Jeep Willy’s needs to be finished, it has a Buick V-6 mated to an automatic transmission, I bought this project to get running but decided to pass it on to the next owner. Currently on Non-opp and I have the clean CA. Title in hand. Asking $2,000. I will consider trade and possibly add some cash if you have a pre smog running short bed Chevy or GMC truck. If add is up, it’s available so please don’t ask”

1970 CJ-5 Gardiner, OR $6000


Blaine shared this CJ-5, noting the hardtop looked unusual, which the rear of it does. After some research, I felt it is a Koenig Jiffy Cab 520 for the CJ-5 (see an Aug 1957 brochure here). This is the first time I’d noticed that the Jiffy Cab 520 had an unusually wide rear door with slim sides (not room for side windows in the back).






“The jeep is pretty-much untouched and original (except for the paint). Last year before AMC bought Jeep. It has the factory 3.7l Dauntless V6 motor, three-speed transmission and factory PTO winch. Split bench seat.

The motor is strong with as-new oil pressure. A prior owner put a 3.8l intake on it so it can use the Delco electronic ignition. Dual exhaust, as new. Transmission good as are the brakes. I hate antique cooling systems, so a new radiator and heater core. Headlight replacements should be in today (3rd), LEDs with glass faces.

The paint job was for protection since it came to the coast, mediocre base coat, clear coat. The hard top was bought when the Jeep was new. Neither roof or the body show rust, it came from Talent, very dry country. It has a mis-matched tire, and needs little jobs for it to be the daily driver.

This is an old Jeep, old school. No power steering, just a big steering wheel. No power brakes or cruise control. Early Jeeps are strong and reliable, but have little in common with modern Jeeps.

I am willing to consider trades, even non-vehicle, if the trade seems right, or $6k. I have varied interests.”

1960 CJ-5 Broad Brook, CT $10,000


John shared this militarized CJ-5. Though not restored to original, it looks like this was a nut and bolt rebuild at some point. It seems worth a look given the price.


“Fully rebuilt motor and transmission new tires brakes canvas top and seats. Has been sandblasted and painted about 10 yrs ago.”

(09/30/2023) This may be worth a look. The Koenig half cab looks in good shape.

1956 CJ-5 Glade Park, CO $4000


It doesn’t run at the moment, but is supposed to have a solid body.

Comes with new Solex carburetor purchased through Jeepsterman recently. New 6 volt battery. Odds are good that it will run when replaced. Ran previously. Back bench seat included.”

Custom Jeep Brooksville, FL $1000


Here’s an odd one.


“So, this has been in my family for quite a while. Believe my great grandpa ‘created’ this back in the 80’s and would mainly use it as a hunting vehicle. To my understanding mostly all the exterior is fiberglass, cab space is mainly sheet metal, engine and chassis are from an old jeep (willys jeep or jeep CJ) sometime in the 1940’s-60’s. Price is OBO, if you think you have any info on the chassis and engine based on the pictures let me know, I would like to learn more about it myself. Have the cylinder head and other parts but are in kind of rough shape as you could assume”

1955 CJ-5 Hastings, MN $3000


Update: As John points out, the body, chassis and fenders aren’t from ‘55.

The Meyer half cab might be in good shape. Hard to tell what shape the body is in.
