Year? CJ-5 w/Trailer Redding, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

This late ’50s CJ-5 looks like a great candidate to run as is. It’s got early Free-Lock hubs, an Warn Overdrive, and a  PTO Winch. The body appears solid as well.  The trailer has potential as well (if the bottom is good).

“nice project jeep. had a frame off restoration back in the 90s. lost the keys. clean title has trailer as well that goes with it. was driving until 07. has just sat since. 4000 obo”

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $35,000

(02/04/2021) Mike spotted this CJ-5 with a myriad of updates. I don’t recognize the top; I’m wonder if it has been customized with extra large windows?

1960 “Willy X Jeep” Salado, TX $16,500


Can’t say that I’ve ever heard of a “Willy X Jeep”? Looks like a plain old CJ-5 to me.


“This is the nicest and most original 1960 Willy X Jeep you will find under $25,000. 6592 original miles. In 2012 @ 2346 miles a complete rebuild was performed on the entire vehicle, costing $11,000. ALL receipts for the rebuild on hand as well as original jeep documents. Everything on the Jeep works as it should. One light switch knob handle is broken. Little to NO rust, tires are in great condition, 4WD works as it should. It is a one of a kind Jeep. You would have to pay $25,000 to come anywhere close to the quality and collector value of this jeep. This is not a Jeep to slap big wheels on and go mudding. It’s just a pleasure to own this piece of history. I have enjoyed owning this Jeep but as with its second owner, it is hard on my back. I am the 4th owner. You could take this Jeep to a show as it is.”

1965 CJ-5 Tuxedo Park IV Myrtle Beach, SC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.  It sold for $23,800.

Mike shared this nice looking Tux Park.

“If this was a 24k mile “1965 any car you can imagine”  , it would be rare, Now considering that it is a rare 1965  Tuxedo park, its even more rare !!! Selling a super rare , 24k original documented mile, rust free, fully restored classic that is perfect for driving or investment purposes.    The story of how Jeep debuted the Tuxedo Park model to lure a higher end customer into buying a Jeep product makes for a great story to tell, There is no better way to tell that story than to have one of these fully restored examples right in front of you, ”

1973 4Dr CJ-5/7/Scrambler Newark, DE **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-7, CJ5, Features, Other 4x4s • TAGS: , , , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,990.

(12/11/2020) This is certainly unusual build.

“f Jeep would have started building these in the 70s, they would have never had financial issues. Look at this rare piece.The Jeep was built using all CJ5 parts. The front door is modeled off of a CJ7. The rear door is modeled off of a CJ5.

The bed is extended to the length of a CJ6 or CJ8 Scrambler. The frame is stretched 36 inches in the middle and 14 inches behind the rear axle. The frame was boxed from the front to the rear spring perches. It has Dana 30 and Dana 44 axles (both are open diffs). The transfer case is a Dana 20. The transmission is a 3 speed. I believe it is a T150.

The engine is an AMC 360 from a 1972 Wagoneer. It was rebuilt about 20,000 miles ago. It was bored over. The crank was turned. It got all new bearings, new pistons, new valve guides, and hardened seats. It has an RV cam, an Edelbrock SP2P low rise dual plane intake, and a Holley Street Avenger 570cfm double pumper carb. Skip White electronic ignition/distributor. Warn 8274 Winch. Heavy duty steel front fenders. (Matching Rescue Green CJ5 OEM fenders also included.) Rear corner guards. The motor has more than enough power for a vehicle this size.

1961 CJ-5 Kirskville, KY $5500


Terry shared this CJ-5. Listed as a 1961 model, the body and fenders are from a later CJ-5 (early CJ-5s had JEEP stamped in all capital on the side and no side reflectors). A DJ-5 grille has been added to the front to fit the inline 6.
