“I have a good 56 Jeep project that was sitting in a barn for about the last 30 years. It does not run. Complete and not dissassembled. Very solid body. Will require some rust repair on the right front floor and possibly the left front floor also. This is a project that needs restoration. I was told the engine was rebuilt many years ago and it was driven into the 90s. Bill Of Sale only. Two new front tires. Rolls well for loading. This is a project vehicle that is in good condition for being 65 years old.”

Year? DJ-5 Airport-Baggage Jeep Spokane, WA $650


UPDATE: Colin pointed out that this is likely a DJ-5 and not a CJ-5. Besides the points he makes in the comment, you can just make up the passenger rear rim which only has four lug nuts.

“For sale is a jeep was told it was an old military jeep not sure on what year it is was told it was a 46 But couldn’t find the year in the trim tags no title could with a bill of sale asking 650”

1960 CJ-5 Henry Kaiser’s(?) Paso Robles, CA $12,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: , , .

Blaine found this unusual CJ-5. The seller claims it was special ordered by Henry Kaiser, then given to the Boy Scouts. Hopefully, the seller can substantial the claim. Even without that pedigree, this is an awfully stock jeep in very good shape.

“This is a 1960 CJ five with 35,000 original miles. The jeep is from Hawaii. Henry J Kaiser gave this jeep to the Boy Scouts in Hawaii. The Boy Scouts sold raffle tickets as a fundraiser. When the jeep was about a year old. It wound up in Paso Robles. The man owned it past away. I Purchased a jeep 15 years ago. The stoop is always been under cover in store and in storage. It is in great condition. The color of the jeep, is the same colors as the Royal Hawaiian hotel in Hawaii. Which was also owned by Henry J Kaiser. The main body of the jeep which is painted a darker pink is the same as the hotel The light pink that is used on the grill. He’s also the same color as the trim color on the hotel. The color of the seats are the color of the tile roof that is on the hotel. This is also the same colors of used on Kaiser s Sand and gravel trucks. This jeep has an absolutely fabulous history. and I believe that it is the only CJ five. In these colors as it was a special order by Henry J Kaiser and sell.”

1961 CJ-5 Silverthorne, CO $4500

Year? CJ-5 Broomfield, CO $400


This CJ-5 has a “panic button” installed on the dash. But, what really caught my eye, was the unusual bumper. Dualmatic made bumpers at one point. I wonder if this was one model?

1958 CJ-5 Indian Valley, ID $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: .

This CJ-5 has an M-38a1 “arctic” top with the wood doors. It seems in reasonably good shape. The side of the body threw me a bit as it appears to lack the “JEEP” stamps on the cowl sides. However, the passenger side looks like it may have had some bondo work, so that may explain why this lacks the stamp (likely either cut and repaired OR bondoed over OR both).

The seller included pics of a text message where some anonymous expert labeled the jeep a “ch3a”[assuming they meant CJ-3A), based on the “one-piece windshield”. The texter continued, writing, “In military lingo I believe it is a m38 … My best guess it is a 47/48 is is definitely military because of the gas cap.”

Hmmm …

“1958 Willys Jeep cj5 hard top project in assembly phase. Parts cleaned painted surfaced for gaskets. On most parts. Block still needs to go to machine chop. Transmission ready for assembly T case is intact. PO did axles and hubs. Before purchase so it rolls. PO also gave a manual and a kizer willys mag for parts most the stuff is outlined With some notes from PO.

Lots of work has been done to this already & lots of leg work already done lots of new parts already new brake lines new brakes new U joints diffs serviced hubs are packed I would really like to see this go to a good home to run someday. Sooner than later I just don’t have the time My loss is your gain. In the kizer willys mag I found the tub of this Jeep $4700 Let alone all the new parts. Already purchased countless man hours already done dismantling cleaning resurfacing. Somethings already reassembly I’d say it’s a steal”
