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.”

Jeep CJ-5 Camper 1/43 Scale Model 109€ (Euros)

Blaine spotted this really neat model of a Jeep CJ-5 Camper setup. It’s pretty neat model and unique model that I believe is about 3″ long. It is shipped from Mannheim, Germany. In the post below this one, there’s some history about the camper inventor.

Year? CJ-5 w/ BackHoe Bolivar, OH $5500


This package also includes a second backhoe unit. Thanks to Andy for sharing it.


year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh6 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh7 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh8 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh9

“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.”

1962 CJ-5 Detroit Lakes, MN $11,900


Originally white, this CJ-5 looks solid.

“This is a very nice 1962 Willys CJ5.  Runs great, motor has been checked over and new rod and main bearings have been installed.

Steering box was rebuilt. Clutch is good, brakes are good. Body is in very good condition with just one small patch on the passenger side floor over a support channel (support channel has approx 3-4″ of rust). Interior of the tool box has some surface rust, no rust through. No frame issues.

Looks like original condition other than it was painted red over the original white, no modifications. Seats are in good condition, probably recovered in the past, no tears. New glove box insert. This would be an easy restoration or have fun with it as is.”

1961 CJ-5 Van Nuys, CA $8500


Lots of stock jeep here. This has a Koenig hardtop and a set of early Husky hubs.


“1961 CJ5 100% original CA barn find survivor. Aftermarket factory installed hard top has never been removed. All windows and glass good and functioning. Everything works. Owner told me the Jeep had a re-spray in the 70’s but you can’t tell because it’s faded and the patina. Paint will shine with a buff and wax but I don’t like my cars like that. Took this in on partial trade as part of my collection but do not need it. It came with a Jeepster and some other parts I needed. Unmolested and uncut. No modifications. Original factory installed side steps. Drive as is or lift it. Head turner everywhere I park it. Brand new industrial battery. Brand new tires. Dropping off Monday (7/10) at carburetor shop to rebuild it, so it runs perfect. It has a little dead spot that I don’t like. No leaks. Engine bay is perfect. Zero rust. Original rubber floor mat. Push button starter. 4WD, locking hubs and transfer case all working. 12 volt vintage glass dome light installed but nothing cut or drill”

1955 CJ-5 Trencher Shipshewana, IN $3000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.

(07/15/2023) Nick’s selling this early CJ-5 trencher project.


“This is a first model year 1955 CJ5 serial #13845. It has an original Auburn Jeep-A-Trench and the rare factory T98 4-speed transmission with granny low gear.

This style trencher is the gear-draulic which uses a hydraulic pump to raise and lower the unit. A driveshaft will slowly drive the Jeep while it trenches.

I’m told this last ran approximately 10 years ago. Engine spins over, but has low compression of 25-35 psi. Rings likely need soaked. I pulled the intake valve cover off and it looked clean.

Unsure of trencher condition itself, but check out Turn N Burn on YouTube where another trencher was brought back to life without much work.

Frame has patches as most trencher Jeeps do. Aside from the left rear corner dent, body is pretty decent for its age.

No title. Firm on price.
