1 M-38A1D and 1 1957 CJ-5 Highland Home, AL $2000 (for both)


The M-38A1D is the nuclear model.


“2 jeeps for sale selling as a pair. You could take the 2 and make a nice jeep as all the parts are the same. 1 jeep is a 1957 CJS with engine and transmission that ran good 2 years ago until starter went out. The other is a military M38A1 that had a cannon mount on the back, no motor has transmission. 2000.00 for both”

Mark and his son Tom have assembled another video with Drew at the Jeep Farm, this time it involves the rebury of a CJ-5.

1959 CJ-5 Leadville, CO $3700


Has a solid looking Kelly top. Could be a good price. It was bought and has been owned locally in Leadville.


“16200 original miles on hurricane 4. All original except for radiator,hoses, front fenders, paint,seats, wheels and new tires. Have doors with broken glass.Runs good. It was bought here in Leadville at jeep dealer in 59 by original owner and I became 2nd owner in 2001. Realizing I probably will not find time to restore.”

1955 CJ-5 Kittitas, WA $9000


My great uncle had a low mileage early CJ-5 jeep that was rarely used and rarely left the farm (sold before his death; sadly I couldn’t get it at the time). So, it’s possible the 8200 mileage is correct. However, with that low of mileage, I’m surprised the heater (or whatever was installed on the passenger side — see engine compartment photo — isn’t still there).


“This Jeep is completely original. It has 8200 original miles. It spent most of its adult life in Eastern Wa. Everything works…4 wheel drive..runs well. Has always been garaged.”

1959 CJ-5 Gunnison, CO $3000


It’s got pretty dented fender, and a little damage in the rear, but otherwise seems like it’s in good shape.


“Runs excellent, no rust, body has some character. Has been stored in a garage at a mountain cabin. Great candidate for a restoration project or just a summer daily driver.”

1955 CJ-5 Greeley, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Looks like it has the original KS 0-10 speedometer in it (but the needle is broken). Has an f-head header, too.

“This is an original 6 volt cj5 has 4 cylinder engine runs great and drives great has twin stick transfer case and 4wd works great have 3 of the 4 stock rims and have 4 newer rims and 3 newer tires no title but have off road tags for it new steering wheel and wiper motor sprayed bed liner in floor of it and just a small amount of rust in floor under fuel tank”

1961 CJ-5 Yukon, OK $5000


Gayland shared this CJ-5 with a ventilating windshield. Unusual speedometer face, too.


“61 willys Jeep runs and drives but definitely not a daily driver it needs some work the breaks don’t work very good and it’s not geared for the highway but it’s a fun alternative to a atv it will crawl up pretty much anything and could be driven around town with a little work has title and I will get an up to date tag really wanting to trade for a pontoon boat or travel trailer but I’ll look at whatever you got or cash offer”

1962 CJ-5 Orange County, CA $15,500


This includes a working set of Thor Electronic Hubs (and the first pic I’ve seen of the switch to engage the hubs). These are the “Lectro-Matic” version of the hubs (there was also an automatic version). Dan documented a set of the “Lectro-Matric” hubs here.


“Anyone looking for the coolest 62 Jeep CJ5 on the planet. I got this handsome little guy up for sale. It’s beyond amazing! Everything works, every light, all gauges, the chrome winch ect…oh and there’s chrome all over the place. Original paint, Original interior.. both are in incredible condition. It’s a very unique Jeep and it’s running a Corvette engine that was installed by the original owner in the mid sixties.He was a aircraft mechanic so everything is perfect .It also has very rare Thor electronic locking front hub set . No rust anywhere and super straight. I have the those crazy off road wide white wall tires in the pics and the hubcaps. I just threw on a new set of Power King black walls to drive it around. The Jeep runs amazing! It’s got really good power and not geared that low. I have not taken it on the freeway but got it up to 60mph with no issues. This is a very special Jeep with history. Ca title & current registration in my name”
