1964 CJ-5 House Springs, MO $1500


Seller mentions an overdrive, so there might be value here.

“Frame solid. Body has slight rust but not bad at all. The “Hurricane” 4 cylinder engine is sitting in the back of the Jeep. Previous owner said it ran but said it had a coolant leak. The coolant leak was the head gasket. Has 4-speed with overdrive. Also has BFGoodrich 31″ tires with excellent tread on aftermarket 15″ wheels. Was going to drop the engine in and drive just like it is but moving situations forced me to sell. Has a CLEAN TITLE.”

The “New” CJ-5 at SEMA

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features

Merlin reported on a NEW CJ-5 that will go into production (approx 5,000 jeeps per year) soon. One question that many folks have asked is how the new jeep can meet the current safety specs for new cars. According to Merlin, the short answer is it can’t, but it doesn’t have to meet them. In 2014 the feds passed regulations that allow low production auto manufacturers to only have to meet the specs for 1967.

“With Sema going on I am excited to finally announce the return of an old favorite, the Cj5. Universal Motors Corp (makers of the Allied Jeep L head blocks) has the new Mopar licensed Cj5 on display in booth 32326 at Sema. These sport the current Jeep engine, and there will be a diesel option as well. Bodies and parts will be manufactured by UMC, not bought from current parts and panel manufacturers other than Jeep. A kit version will be available as well. Assembly is done in Detroit. More info and pics will be posted as I receive more. http://universalmotorscorp.com/

1960 CJ-5 Hampton, NH $2500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/18/2017) Has a fiberglass body and runs.

“I purchased this a year ago with the hopes to fix it up but I realized that I dont have the time or space for it. That being said I did a little work to it. Replaced battery and battery cables. Replaced the carb and replaced the fuel filters. I also purchased a new gas can for it.

The body of the vehicle is in great shape. The body has been replaced with a fiber glass one. The inside is also in great shape no rips in the seats.

The frame is also in great shape. There is rust but NO ROT. A previous owner cut a notch in the frame for some reason but it doesn’t seem big enough to effect anything.

The jeep starts and runs but is very loud and blows a blue smoke. I have been told that it has a rod nock. I am asking $2500 OBO. Some research tells me to get the engine running reliably it will be about $2500. You could have a cool jeep for 5k. Only serious inquiries please. I can send more pictures if needed. “

1964 CJ-5 Wheat Ridge, CO $2500


Seller believes the Koenig hardtop top came off of a DJ, but that top wouldn’t have fit the wider windshield of the CJ-5.

“Been slowly fixing this cj5 up over the last year or so.
Recently replaced-
All fluids
Axle seals
Greased wheel bearings
Brake master cylinder
All brake slave cylinders
All brake shoes
Brake flex lines
Ignition switch
Tail lights
Distributor cap, rotor, points and leads
Spark plugs
Coolant hoses
Fan belt
Installed delco 145amp alternator.
And more I have forgotten about!

The original f134 motor runs well and I have driven the jeep around the block a few times. Still needs some work to be roadworthy but not much. Body is in good shape with very little rust.
Has a interesting Hardtop and doors that I suspect came off a dj5
Vehicle is fitted with a Ramsey pto winch and PTO.
Vehicle needs new rear leaf springs and the parking brake fixed before it will be roadworthy. Also the fuel tank really needs to be flushed and sealed.”

“Jeep Collection” Falmouth, KY **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $6000.

(07/21/2017) Craig shared this one. Seller wants $6000 for all the jeeps.

“I have 4 Willys Jeeps. ’49, ’60, ’65, & ’69. I have titles to all except the ’69. The ’49 alone is worth the price of entire lot. I want $6,000 for ALL. I will NOT separate at this time! I may sell the ’49 by itself but prefer to sell the whole lot. Please don’t text me asking me for a book of information back and forth. It’s much easier to CALL! I can also help with transport AFTER the deal has been made. I am willing to trade the entire lot up or down for a TJ or JK Jeep. May be interested in other trades but Jeep preferred. I thought I would have time for a few projects but that has changed so I’m selling them all. It would honestly be easier to come in person and check them all out. Missing parts here, extra parts there, etc. PLEASE no calls or texts after 11pm.”
