1955 CJ-5 Crested Butte, CO $5000


This has one of the odder front bumpers I’ve seen. The jeep appears to be solid with a Beck or Kelly hardtop. Note what may be a King Seeley 0-8 speedo.


“Very nice 1955 Jeep cj5 with the original F head engine 3 speed manual and aftermarket locking front hubs. Shifts smooth and runs great all gueges seem to work and have done a partial rebuild on the engine, with 2 new pistons and new head gasket along with a new valve cover gasket electric wiper and fuel pump installed.

1968? CJ-5 Wilmington, VT $825


This looks to be a 1970 body or later given the rear fuel inlet. Are those summer hubs? I can’t tell for sure.


“Late 60’s CJ5 PROJECT for sale. Very fixable tub with a great frame that has been cleaned and painted. New aluminum radiator, new soft touch clutch, timing set, rear main seal as well as oil pan gasket. Have swing pedals and power steering setup that will go with it as well as gas tank and heater.

1978 CJ-5 Spokane, WA $5900


This CJ-5 was modified to dig post holes.


“This is a highly modified Jeep designed to dig post holes. It’s a 78 CJ5, in running order and comes with a 6″, 9″, and 12″ auger. I think it can dig as deep as 6′. The best part about this design for digging holes, is the passenger seat faces backwards and has all the controls for driving.”

1955 CJ-5 Fortville, IN $15,500


Mark shared this ad. Over all, this looks solid. It likely have a replacement body, as it lacks the faux battery box lid. It does have reverse front springs, so the frame may be original. This also has the King Seely 0-10 early speedometer, which only came with CJ-5s. This does lack the PTO bar in the rear. I think to secure the windshield it is using the Advance Adapter latch kit.

1956 CJ-5 Farm Jeep Chester, MA eBay


Barry let me know that Nate is selling this CJ-5 Farm Jeep. It includes a rare restored Stratton Lift that Barry highlighted here: https://www.farmjeep.com/lifts/stratton-lift/stratton-lift-restoration/

View all the information on eBay

Engine (F134), transmission (T90), transfer case (Dana 18)  and axles (Dana 25 front, Dana 44 rear) were all rebuilt by the previous owner. The three point hitch is the hardest to find of all the ones used by Willys. It is a Stratton lift. All the lifting devices are under the bed which keeps the bed open. PTO is operational and comes with a 90 degree belt pulley.

There is a Novi governor on the engine and it is not hooked up. Brakes were upgraded to 10″ drums by the previous owner as well. Body has dents and dings. Only rot is in the hat channel behind the spare tire. Floors are really nice. See pictures for body damage. Has venting windshield and the glass is broken. Also has most of the original soft top bows.

Comes with original side steps and some other spare parts. Also has the regular seats if the buyer does not want the 60-40 bench seat. Lift arms are reproductions copied off originals. I have the templates and new decals along with other information that goes with the lift. Under the tub is good and the frame is not rotted or broken anywhere. There are helper coil springs in the rear. This is a very solid and original jeep. I rebuilt the lift cylinder three years ago. I have a clean title in my name. The jeep originally came from Washing state. Some of the lights do not work. Tires are old and have cracks, but they work just fine.”

“Do you want a Jeep? Do you want a backhoe? Do you want both? Do you dig car shows? Really Dig car shows?? Then you need this: A mid 60s Go For Digger factory backhoe built on a Jeep frame and body. The factory was in Toledo and continues today with a small self propelled backhoe made in West Virginia. These units were used by utility companies and municipalities and few survive today. The gentleman from whom I purchased used it for a water line business for 40 years until he retired in 2020.. The upshot is, this a fully functional, working machine, not barn find project. While it may not be pretty, you can get real work done with this. The original body rusted away and was replaced with the beauty you see here at some point long ago. F head motor. I did pull the head and had valves ground and new seals put in. This price Includes half a truck load of extra parts (most new) such as radiator, cylinders, valves, hoses, clutch, etc. Also includes a complete backhoe assembly which I found a year ago. Includes bill of sale. Cash. No trades. No Venmo. No Cash app. Thank you. Other stuff: Low geared rear end with top speed maybe 20 or so. I also have a handheld hydraulic breaker for this which I’ve never used.”
