1961 Photo of Early Tux Park CJ-5 on ebay


The caption labels this CJ-5 a Tuxedo Park (rather than claiming it has a Tux park package). Like the 1954 press photo from a couple days ago, this one has the white windshield frame, too.

The Tuxedo Park, a new convertible, has been added to the Jeep line by Willys Motors Inc.The sports utility model is white with pleated red vinyl seats, black vinyl convertible top with matching spare wheel cover and white wall tires with chrome wheel disks. it is a four wheel drive vehicle.

Year? CJ-5 Maryland $750


The seller indicates this is a 1959-60, but the 0-8 King Seeley speedometer suggests it was early 1956. The seller also has a fiberglass body to sell.

“YESTERDAYS PROJECT.. Too many projects going on, this one has to go. The Jeep drove to it’s present resting spot, it has seal problems, I think it was leaking oil badly. It comes with the plow, and I also own a Fiberglass body that I need to sell. I checked and thought it was the correct wheelbase, but needs to be checked for sure. The price is for the Jeep, not the fiberglass body..”

1957 CJ-5 Pinion Hills, CA $2000


This includes a second engine and tranny. The jeep has a ventilating windshield and a PTO winch.

“This is a rare 1957 Willys Civilian jeep. What makes it so rare is the type of windshield frame that it came with, and the factory Koenig PTO driven winch. I purchased a little over a year ago with the intentions of restoring it. Just haven’t had the time to start on it. The engine was disassembled and sitting in the rear
Of the tub when I purchased it. I hunted down a good running replacement engine that also had a good transmission connected to it. The running engine and trans is included in the sale of this jeep. The jeep has very little rust and a great patina. It’s a unmolested survivor, meaning it hasn’t had `modifications done to it. It’s never even had a roll cage installed on it. It wouldn’t take much to restore it, or just install the engine and get it on the road again. A Willys in this condition is a rare find.

My research:
This jeep was first sold to a orange grower in the Chino/Corona, CA area and used to drive around and tend to a Orange grove. Some years later a man in the high desert here bought it and
brought it home. He disassembled the engine and let it sit for many years. When he passed away I purchased it from his family.

I have the title. $2,000.00 is what I’ll take for it. Serious inquiries only. No low ballers, The price is firm. Price was just reduced from $2,500.00”

CJ-6 Meyer Hardtop Murietta, CA $500


This is a hard-to-beat price!

” Eminently restorable steel hardtop and doors from 1967 Jeep CJ6. All glass intact and weatherstripping/rubber in good condition. Door mechanisms work…windows roll up and down.

I’ve restored the rest of the jeep, but this original top is too heavy to put back on. This is a rare piece for the dedicated originalist.

Surface rust on the interior roof, as you see in the picture, but not threatening the metal’s integrity.”

1965 CJ-5 Navy Albany, GA $8500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $7800.

(12/14/2017) This is a neat jeep. It’s a Navy ordered CJ-5.  It appears to have a gov plate attached to the dash. It includes a ventilating windshield. Looks like the passenger rear side has been patched.

“1965 Naval Military Jeep is one of 600 made. Most are not running. This jeep was owned by Russell Dees Military Vehicles and I now own it. I just had Knico engines in Moultrie Ga do the rebuild on this 4cyl engine that has warranty. I had Hayman’s Garage Albany Ga put new clutch, brakes, brake lines, alternator,water pump,radiator, hoses, belts and new gas tank and ignition . The body is in good condition with only a spot of surface rust here and there. Tires are almost new . A rare opportunity to own a collectable part of military history.”
