1957 CJ-5 Hesperia, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(08/15/2012) Here’s an unusual CJ-5.  It appears to have been modified by the same people/person who created these other modified jeeps, an observation I’m basing on the top.  Given the jeep is from Hesperia, there’s a very good change it is the same group.  Note that the jeep was stored for more than three decades.

“Here’s my 1957 jeep, it was stored from around the late 70’s till 2010, still has the original california black plate, runs and drives great!!

paint, interior, and engine change where done around 1960, was owned and customized by a california car customizer in the fresno area

1960 CJ-5 Minnetrista, MN eBay


Buz spotted this one.  It is a no-reserve auction on a beautiful, stock CJ-5.  You’ll want to look at the pics of this one.  Compare the picture of it to the brochure below in the next post, too.

“Selling for my computer inept friend.  This 1960 Willys Jeep CJ5 is in Beautiful Original Condition, probably the nicest original CJ5 in existence.  Totally Original Paint, Upholstery, Engine, Miles, Everything is ORIGINAL. 21055 miles. Clear Title.  Original Spare Tire is not shown in the pictures but is included in the sale.  The tires are believed to be the originals and are in good shape with normal wear and no weather checking.  The Jeep has been stored in a carefully climate controlled building and has seen just enough use in the last many years to keep everything functional and working well.  The Jeep starts easily, runs perfectly, goes down the road as it should, and it needs nothing.  The Hardtop appears to have never been removed since new.  All fluids are fresh and the battery is new.  Look closely at the pictures, they tell the story about this vehicle better than words, more detailed pictures are available if you request them via email.  The Jeep shows very minimal use and wear with no damage or repairs.  All sheet metal is in oustanding condition and the only corrosion is very minimal, located near the tailights on both sides, the pictures show this clearly. Floor pans, fenders, quarter panels hood, undercarriage, were undercoated early in this CJ’s life and have been remarkably preserved.  There are no hidden problems, repairs, or any funny business … This jeep is the real thing, a near museum quality original, unmolested survivor.”

1955 CJ-5 Arvada, CO $1800


This has some updates parts, but looks fine for the price.

“Kaiser Willys 1955 CJ5. First year of the civilian CJ5’s, 215 V8 Buick motor with 2bbl carb, new battery this spring, 3 Spd tranny, Overdrive, front tow hitch, 60’s era bucket seats. Except for the motor and overdrive I believe this jeep to be fairly stock. I have some 31-10.50-15 tires on it with fair tread. Standard 9 in brakes so expect what you get for brakes with the 9″ drums and 1955 brakes designs. Runs and drives. Some rust peeking through paint with a split on top just behind hood. Bimini top and full soft top with two sets of doors. Soft top is fair. Keeps the weather out but rear window could be replaced as it is cracked. Asking $1800 cash and will only sell local. Can be used as is or would be a base for a builder if desired. My original desire was to build it up but just ended up using it stock for the past 8 or 9 years. Please respond to ad and I will get back with you. Thanks for looking.”

This is a nice looking combo.

1959 CJ-5 Huntsville, AL **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000

“I have a mostly restored 1959 CJ5 for sale. I got to 95 percent complete with a total rebuild and was transferred overseas. I bought it as a 1963 model in 2003, but research on the matching ID tag, block, and frame serial numbers puts it in October of 1959. This Willys is mostly original with some upgrades, with no rust. F134 engine plus T90 transmission, stock front and rear drives – all rebuilt. The carburetor is a Solex (original rebuilt Carter YF included). Brakes were not completed and this is the primary reason that it is not roadworthy. Currently it is in storage in Huntsville, Alabama with no title or tags. I do not currently live near this Jeep so I will have to arrange travel for a showing.”
