1957 CJ-5 Edinburg, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** “Was $12,000.

Looks in good shape, though the bottom isn’t quite as clean as the topside.

“1957 Jeep Willys CJ5. Runs great!! Just got it NYS inspected. Hardly any rust on it. All original, not restored. This was a mint barn find from original owner. Only 33,000 miles on it. In great condition for an original 57 Jeep. Only reason I’m selling it is because it’s in such great condition I’m afraid of using it to go off road. I don’t want to damage it, I’d rather sell this to someone who can appreciate the historical value. Like I said, runs great I’ve been driving it around for a couple months now. I just put new brake lines, hose, pads, wheel cylinders and master brake cylinders on it. Along with a new carb.”

1957 CJ-5 Tahuya, WA $3750


Seems like a good price. Has some mods.

“It has to go! She is getting upset! Price drop…First one to show with $3750 cash takes it home. 1957 Jeep Willys CJ5. 3speed with overdrive. New brake master cylinder. Tilt wheel. Very good body. Runs great. I believe it is the Chevy 4cyl 153 cu in. Not sure on the mileage. Unfortunately I can only tell you what I was told when I bought this on September 4th, 2019. I can give you the number of the person who sold it to me. Was told that it was part of a divorce settlement and that it sat in storage for the last 15 years. The reason I am selling this Jeep is that I was supposed to be looking at a boat the day I bought the Jeep. She said I don’t need another vehicle. I drove it around the community 3 times since Sept. 4th and that’s it. Needless to say, the Jeep has been sitting in my shop since I bought it. Come take a look. It’s a nice rig. Thank you, Woody”

Hamm’s Beer Commercial and Stickers

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, CJ5, Features

UPDATE II: More Hamm’s stuff thanks to Maury:

  1. Here are some Hamm’s Thermo-Serv plastic mugs with Hamm’s on them.
    View all the information on eBay
    hamms-mugs1 hamms-mugs2
  2. A second TV commercial (no jeep, but includes the guy and the bear):

UPDATE: Maury shared a TV commercial that accompanied the Hamm’s beer ad campaign shows in the stickers below. For those old enough to remember Grizzly Adams, which I watched as a kid, it sure feels like an episode of that show. It turns out there was a John “Grizzly” Adams (1812-1860), upon whom the movie/show may have been based, who lived a pretty wild life.


Original Post November 2012: Is this evidence that a Bear is a Jeeper’s best friend? There are two different ebay auctions for this sticker.

1. This seller is offering two stickers for less than the ad below

“2-Vintage Hamm’s Beer Stickers
RARE SET Grizzle w Jeep & Grizzle w Canoe
Cool set with both stickers included.
These are new-unused stickers!
Thank you for looking!”

2.”Up for auction is a rare vintage Hamm’s Beer sticker with a bear riding in a Jeep. Very cool. New old stock. Measures approx. 5.25″ x 5.25″. Multiple available. Please email any questions prior to bidding. Thanks!”

CJ-2A, CJ-5, and Parts North Chili, NY


The CJ-5 is $1600, but I don’t see a price for the CJ-2A. Seller also has a CJ-3B body and a rough CJ-5 (brown). Seller would prefer to sell altogether.


cj2a-cj5-ny1 cj2a-cj5-ny2 cj2a-cj5-ny3 cj2a-cj5-ny4

“I have a 1946 Chassis and body that is a good start to complete a CJ2A. Motor turns over but I have never tried starting it. The body is original steel and was stored in a garage for 40 plus years. Color is a greenish yellow. It has a few panels which I would replace but is in very good condition, does NOT look like Swiss cheese. Chassis has complete drive train including axles, transmission, brakes and wheels. Tires are No Good. It was stored in Syracuse area for a number of years. It has a few gussets to front frame horns and rear V brace needs replacing. I looked for over 2 years to find these items and are the best I could find. Only reason I am selling is I have temporary storage but can’t keep there long term. I have an early flat fender parts vehicle that can be part of the deal.

I also have quite a few parts for various years and am willing to sell them as one lot. Don’t ask to buy individual parts etc. I have an offer to buy everything if I don’t sell as semi complete units.

I have a 1979 CJ5 also that needs extensive body work but frame and drive train are excellent. The 79 has NY title and it runs and drives with a temporary gas tank. I did not register it. The 79 has the 4.2 six cylinder motor. 1979 has good General AT2’s all around. 1979 is $1600 or best offer. I have a number of panels from Classic Industries for the 1979 that will go with it.

I prefer text messages and I don’t answer my phone till after 6:30 PM Mondays, Tues. and Wed. but I will look at your texts.”
