UPDATE: Back in 2012 I ran across a pic of this CJ-5 on Flickr (1st one shown below). Now, thanks to rob, we have a series of photos of this North Carolina CJ-5, custom built by the owner.  Sure looks handy!

1958 CJ-5 Kittredge, CO $5996


Looks like a solid CJ-5.


1958-cj5-kittredge-co1 1958-cj5-kittredge-co2 1958-cj5-kittredge-co3 1958-cj5-kittredge-co4

“This is a 1958 Kaiser Willy’s Jeep that I purchased in 2014. It is all original including the original F4-134 Hurricane Engine. Its got a 3 speed transmission (first gear is a crash box, so you have to not be moving to get it into first). The 4wd works well. The hubs are manual locking.

I have only done a tune-up as well as replace the fuel pump to the motor. I also added a newer stereo and new seats including a back seat with seat belts. There was a red bakini top that came with it, I don’t use it, but will throw it in with a sale. There are also some misc. pieces and parts that I will give the buyer.

The jeep starts right up year after year and is always garage kept. It top’s out at around 35mph, but has a nice granny gear for going up steep hills. As far as I can tell, the jeep spent most of its life in Truth or Consequences New Mexico. The odometer reads ~5700 miles, but I believe the entire speedometer assembly may have been switched out at one point prior to my ownership, so I don’t know if it represents actual mileage The jeep only gets a few miles put on it per year under my ownership. It has very little rust considering its age.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1850.

(03/30/2019) I guess the CJ-2A isn’t a “regular” jeep?


“1947 Willy’s Jeep and a regular Jeep. Willy’s has the original engine and dual wheels. The Jeep has the original 4cly. Both are 4×4 and have manual transmissions. I have the windshield for the Willy’s No title for either one! $2,000 will not split.”

1961 CJ-5 Castle Valley, CO **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown* Was $4200.

This has a nice vintage feel, though the fenders look newer.

1961-cj5-castlevalley-co1 1961-cj5-castlevalley-co2 1961-cj5-castlevalley-co3 1961-cj5-castlevalley-co4

“Willys Jeep 1961 for sale. Starts, runs and drives. Needs some TLC (it’s a Jeep). Gauges and wiring need work. The 12V conversion is still using a 6V starter. It is titled as a 1964, but when I ran the VIN number it comes up as a 1961 on the search sites specific to Willys.
Numerous new parts have been added over the past couple of years, but I’m moving on to other projects.

1979 DJ-5 Boise, ID $2600


Looks solid.


“1979 Jeep DJ5G mail jeep This jeep runs and has the original 258 (4.2) motor in it. New starter and fuel pump The rear end is a Dana 44 axle The jeep is drivable, but does leak some transmission fluid. The gaskets on the 727 transmission are easy to replace, but I have too many projects, so this one has to go and I havent had time to work on it. Since this was an old mail jeep, it is right hand drive”

1978 CJ-5 Santa Fe, NM $5200


Paul’s selling his modified CJ-5. The frame has been reinforced with extra plates.


1978-cj5-santafe-nm1 1978-cj5-santafe-nm2 1978-cj5-santafe-nm3 1978-cj5-santafe-nm4

“This Jeep – hands down – will allow you to out-run the Zombie Apocalypse in style.
1978 Jeep CJ-5, 6-cylinder, 2-barrel carb., HEI electronic ignition, disc brakes.

The 1977-79 model year CJ-5 is considered THE jeep for rock crawling, owing to what is the sturdiest frame ever used on a CJ. These year Jeeps used box frame rails (versus C-channel construction). In addition, this particular CJ’s frame has been reinforced further with plate steel. To say this Jeep is hardy is an understatement; it’s designed for the serious off-roader.

Upgrades include oversize aluminum radiator, Ranchero RS5000 shocks, plate-steel reinforcement throughout including the cargo area, removable rear cargo rack, Hi-lift Jack.

If you are looking to buy a CJ-5 then you know this one is priced to sell quickly. No rust, no mechanical issues, just jump in and go, it needs nothing.”

1955 CJ-5 Sunapee, NH $6950


Travis shared this one. I’d guess, based on the large gas inlet, that this is an M-38 rear body melded to a CJ-5 cowl and front clip.


“New OEM tires(5). Engine runs great. Body solid, no rust, a few wear holes in floor.”

(09/26/2017) A factory bed conversion for a CJ-5? Anyone ever run across that? It’s listed as a 1952, but it has CJ-5 grille and body at the very least. Looks like a ventilating windshield, too (thanks Dave).
