1959 CJ-5 Emmaus, PA $1450


Steve shared this one. It sure looks like there’s some value here.


1959-cj5-emmaus-pa1 1959-cj5-emmaus-pa2 1959-cj5-emmaus-pa3 1959-cj5-emmaus-pa4

“This is a really neat project for someone who has the time. This Jeep needs extensive bodywork and some frame work and most likely mechanical work like brakes etc. The battery is not good and there is an antifreeze leak that needs some more investigation. I took some pictures of the damaged areas just to set the tone.
Keep in mind nothing has been done to this jeep for many years.

The good news is its starts right up and the transmission shifts easily. It seems like everything is functional with the drive train. The hard top is unique and solid. The doors need some work. It has an electric plow lift and plow.
Its been around for a while but the mileage is relatively low.
I purchased it to keep me busy over the winter and it turns out other things more pressing took my time.

This jeep is not road worthy at this time but it could go right to work on a farm with a bit of work.”

1965 CJ-5 Navy Fire Jeep Redding, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE **SOLD** Was $4800.

Robert shared this unusual CJ-5. I don’t see a data plate on the dash (no good shots of the dash), but there are several plates on the firewall. Needs to be sold ASAP. Contact through Pirate4x4:

“The Jeep is a 1965 CJ5 U.S. Navy former FIRE Jeep. (The Navy did not want the Army M38 Jeep) The motor is the stock 134 cu.in. 72 bhp “F head”. I checked compression and each cylinder is 125 psi or better . 3 speed T90 transmission and Warn hubs. It has a nice removable top, but no side curtains. The only difference between the Navy version and a standard CJ5 is that it has a split windshield and a port in the side of the hood for a snorkel. Only 1,000 of these were built for the Navy, and most were left behind in Vietnam. This is the only one I have ever seen. The “stateside” Jeeps were used for fire patrol duty in Navy yards. It has a brass plaque on the dash panel certifying that it a U.S. Navy CJ5. I added a map light light that was a cockpit light from a 1940 Canadian Spitfire Fighter Aircraft Nearly new tires and battery, I am asking $6,500 for this RARE vintage Jeep. Includes a tow bar.

1974 CJ-5 Renegade Lebanon, NJ **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: The site linked to below appears to be a click-bait site rather than a dealer listing site. I’ve updated the post.



“This does not come around often…say once every 40 years.

This 1974 is completely factory original. The paint is original as Toledo applied it, graphics, seats, windshield, body, engine….everything. I spent months cleaning and polishing and detailing every part of this jeep to get back to showroom condition.

I purchased this vehicle from the original owner in Missouri. She was a widow of 33 years. This jeep was her husbands and the couple owned a summer cottage on a lake just outside KC. He purchased it new in Kansas City in 1974 and took it directly to their summer home. There he put 22, 250 miles on the jeep until 1981 when after he had put the vehicle in the garage or the evening he had a stroke and shortly died. The jeep was left in the garage for 33 years by his widow so as to preserve his memory along with all his other trappings.

1959 CJ-5 Corona de Tucson, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

Seems like there is some value here.


“I bought this beauty 18 months ago with great aspirations of having a “fun garage project” for the same model and year of vehicle I learned to drive in way-back-when. Great intentions! Unfortunately, I have had practically ZERO time to work on it and my wife wants her garage back. Long-story-short….the first 1k gets it and I will have peace in the my home. By the end of this coming weekend, Sunday, 2/17, if it’s not gone, it gets donated to Kars-4-Kids.

What you get….1959 Willys CJ5 with a 225 Dauntless 6 cylinder, 3 speed, 4wd. I bought new drum brakes, brake cylinders, and master cylinder and those all go with it (I have receipts….$700). I drove it for about 10 miles right after I bought it and I realized the brakes were about to go…..and they did. I just never did the work on installation. Also, a new steering wheel….nothing wrong with the existing one other than it has some wear…for you to swap out. Also included is a Willys parts catalog. Engine runs fine. Tires are all fine. Just has NO brakes.

If this is for you, you need to trailer it home….remember it has NO brakes. I have clear title. Clock is ticking.”

1959 CJ-5 Atlanta, GA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $27,500.

Maury shared this nicely restored CJ-5, but it it’s not cheap. This also appears to have some rare Cutlas Bulldog hubs.

“Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this fully restored 1959 Willys Jeep CJ-5. After WWII, Willys smartly capitalized on the success of their military Jeeps and began producing a ”Civilian Jeep” – or CJ – and the rest is history. This ”Universal Jeep,” as it was marketed at the time, was a huge hit and over 600,000 CJ-5s were produced from 1954 to 1983 – but few have been restored to this standard.

This CJ-5 was used as a grounds service vehicle for a drive-in movie theater in Cleveland, Ohio before being discovered and purchased in 2010 by a gentleman who embarked on a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration to exacting standards. The original tub was deemed to be too far gone to practically restore so a new steel tub was sourced from Willys-Overland Motors in Toledo, OH. The original fenders, hood, grille and windshield frame were in good condition and were retained for originality. The frame was media blasted and detailed. The correct President Red paint is excellent outside, inside and under the hood and the body is super straight.

1964 Perkins Deisel CJ-5 Helena, MT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,000.

This looks in good shape, though it does have a few mods. Has anyone ever seen dual tank inlets light the ones on the rear of this jeep? (At least I think those are gas inlets).

1971 CJ-5 Mansfield, TX Bring-A-Trailer


Maury spotted this CJ-5 that’s only reach $6000 with 2 days to go. It looks nice.


“This 1971 Jeep CJ5 was sold new at Complete Motors in Fort Collins, Colorado, and later moved to Kansas and Texas before being acquired by the selling dealer six years ago. The truck was reportedly refinished in red in 2003 and is powered by a 225ci V6 mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. Modifications include a suspension lift over aftermarket wheels with 33″ tires as well as aftermarket lighting and a Warn Belleview winch. This CJ is offered with a soft top and doors, records since new, and a clean Texas title.”
