1974 CJ-5 Avondale, AZ eBay


This is not a Super Jeep, but does have the graphics package.

“Up for auction is a 1974 Jeep CJ5. It is powered by an AMC 304 V8 which we believe is the original engine which may make this Jeep a factory Renegade package. It is a three speed manual transmission we believe the axels to be Dana 44’s front and rear. According to our calculations the axle gearing is 4.27:1,

The Jeep runs and drives well and the 4×4 works well. It has manual lock out hubs, and has a manual choke so it starts and runs well when cold. The engine has been upgraded with an Edelbrock aluminum intake, fendewell exit headers than go to medium loudness mufflers, the Jeep sounds throaty but is not overly loud. The Jeep has been in Arizona its entire life, but does have dents and dings all over the body.

There is no rust but there are dents etc. I would call the Jeep a “five to ten footer” meaning that if you are 5 or 10 feet away it looks like a new Jeep, when you get up to it you notice the dents and dings but hey its almost 40 years old and these werent built to be show cars, but it is rust free. It has been repainted an industrial gloss white and has custom Super Jeep package graphics on the body tub.

The body tub is 1976 and was swapped on many years ago. The Jeep has brand new black low back vinyl bucket seats, new seat frames, and a new factory rear seat from Rugged Ridge. The Jeep has 4″ of total lift comprising of 2″ lift Rancho springs front and rear and 2″ lift Performance Accessories shackles. The tires are new 33×10.50×15 BFG KM2s and the wheels are vintage restored American Racing turbines that have been restored to brand new condition. The wheels and tires were installed in the spring of 2011 and have less than 200 miles on them.

The Jeep belonged to my brother in law who was killed in an accident at work, and he performed all of the work and restoration from approx 2009 to 2011, we got it in the spring of 2011. We have kept it in storage and drive it occaisionally when the weather is nice, but honestly have only put maybe 100 to 150 miles on it over the last year and half, mainly a Sunday cruise when the weather is nice etc. We have decided that it might be time to pass it on to someone else to enjoy, this Jeep turns every head that passes by, and it just needs a few minor details to be perfect in our opinion, but it is ready to enjoy as it is now. Clear Arizona title in hand, the Jeep is located in Avondale, AZ. ”

Pinkish Purple CJ-5 Renton, WA Call for Price


This is a couple minutes from my parents house in Renton.  I’ve seen it a couple times, but the street (Petrovisky) is busy enough that it is tough to stop and get a picture.  However, Ann and I finally got a chance to capture it.  Looks like some good color coordination.  Click on the pic and it should be big enough to read the phone number if you are interested.

(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.

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.”
