1960 CJ-5 Montrose, CO $7200


This deserves a closer look.


“1960 Willy’s Jeep is mostly all Original, New Electric Fuel Pump, New OEM Muffler, New (4) Brake Cyl’s and Shoes, Recent Oil Change w / Synthetic Oil. Speedometer not working (mileage unknown). It has had a valve job in 1989. I installed two 3 Point Safety Belts, Turn Signal Switch, and Drivers side electric windshield wiper. The top is a makeshift top I constructed just to keep the rain and snow off but needs to be upgraded. I am asking 7200.00 OBO .
I purchased this Jeep last year and I am the second owner.
I am selling it because I am 74 yo and it is difficult for me to get in and out of it. Also I am a large man and I am not comfortable driving it.
I just returned from Moab Ut. and the Jeep is still on the trailer.”

1957 CJ-5 Belgrade, MT $400


There looks like some value here. Seller lists this as a CJ-3B.



“1950 Jeep Willy CJ3B Project. Clear Title. Has adapters for the Novak Pinto engine conversion. (That is what came in it when I purchased it blown and not worth anything but scrap.)

Started out project years ago in my old shop and now no room for it in my new shop.

Frame completely sandblasted, boxed, and painted with POR.

Both axles sand blasted and rear axle has spring mounts welded for an axle flip.

Bell Housing, and adapter for the Pinto conversion. Novak adapter not shown in any pictures.

Body is rusted, but repairable. Includes hard doors!

What you see it what you get! (Minus Novak Adapter Plate no shown) This is a project, but will be a great rig for someone.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500. Meyer hardtop.

(01/28/2018) “CJ5 body. Doors and windows work. OHV 4cyl Engine runs fine and has great oil pressure. Fuel pump needs seal. Needs clutch and brakes done. Hard top needs some attention.

Chris shared this one. Could make a good restoration.


“Recently acquired but don’t have the time to mess with it. Last on the road in 1969. The previous owner had started restoration but did not finish it. I was told the motor has been rebuilt however I am unable to verify. It appears to be mostly complete but it’s best to come and look for yourself. Feel free to call if you have any questions, I don’t text. ”

T90 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case. F134 motor. Last year of the Willys Jeep. Originally came from California so very little rust if any. 17,900 original miles.

1959 CJ-5 Pryor, OK $3000


A rare non-Texas hunting jeep with a full and raised rear seat.


1959-cj5-pryor-ok0 1959-cj5-pryor-ok1 1959-cj5-pryor-ok2

“Original inline 4 cylinder (F134) engine, manual three speed transmission; all gears and drive ranges (2-hi, 4-hi, 4-low) work well with no issues.

Was 80% restored about two years ago; in good mechanical condition, but it has sat in a pasture for the last year and a half or so. Needs some TLC but still a great hunting jeep. Paint is still in decent shape but showing some rust here and there. No frame/underbody rust.

Electrical system has been converted to 12V, running a GM alternator. Needs some carburetor tuning, but starts and runs well.

“Hey there, a few months ago I picked up this 55 Willys in a trade. I threw a battery in and a set of new plugs and she runs when fed through the carb. Good bones, but extremely rusty. Comes with a plow. What you see is what you get. No paperwork. Interested in all trades as well.”
