Sebastian Finds a Jeep on Bimini

• CATEGORIES: CJ-7, Features

Sebastian snapped these photos of this right hand drive jeep.

He writes, “Last Saturday I spotted this beautiful Jeep in Bimini Island (Bahamas). See attached pictures. Some very interesting features such as the steering wheel at the “wrong” side, a quality roof, lateral seats, nice speakers, and extended back. I did not see anyone around so I don’t know who the owner is or what is the car for, maybe a private recreational vehicle? or a public taxi like in Colombia? not sure, but definitely I envy the person that drives this jewel on the beach.”

1976 CJ-7 Unionville, Va **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Carl wants to sell his good looking CJ-7 so he can purchase a flattie.

“This is my pride and joy.  1976 CJ7 4X4 with a quadratrac transfer case with high and low range.  I started with a 76 cj7, took it down to the frame and started restoring.  I spent 3 years building this jeep, invested tons of money and countless hours.  I am only selling due to financial reasons.

All parts were cleaned, primed, painted, replaced or upgraded.  The jeep is painted single stage John Deere yellow with Gun Metal Grey trim.   Paint is excellent and just over a year old.(There are a few small cracks)  Ready to go another 35 years.  This jeep was designed for reliability.  It has power steering and manual brakes.  Manual brakes work excellent, no need to upgrade to power they work so well.  The engine sound very solid and does not smoke. It had to have been rebuilt not so long ago.  Transmission shifts smooth.

Will need a horn relay, the stereo hooked up and speakers, clock does not work.  I would move the emergency drive switch from the glove box to the center consol.  The glove box door hits the roll cage when trying to open. I have a few extra parts to go with it.

The top is gray and the doors are black. The top is not the newest but it works just fine…. view more description on eBay”

Unique Collection of Jeeps East Haddam, Ct

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-6, CJ-7, CJ5, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  Brian’s selling his unique collection of jeeps.  Among them is a CJ-6 Wrecker, a CJ-5 Trencher, CJ-5 Snow Blower and the first CJ-5 ever produced. 

You are bidding on a massive collection of jeep vehicles, literature, memorabilia, dealer items, toys, and much more.   This is the collection of Jeep restorer and enthusiast, Brian Hainer, of Brian’s 4wd Parts, LLC.   This list of vehicles is as follows:

1946 CJ2A,
original survivor with 7000 miles on it.  Original top, chaff screen, rear seat.  Even has original key and invoice from Willys/Overland.  Has the patina of a 50+ year old vehicle and is one of the most original examples of a CJ2A in existence.

1962 CJ6 Garage Service Vehicle. This has been restored from the ground up and is flawless.  Original Koenig Wrecker Boom, and Front winch.  Twin Stick PTO powers the front winch, rear wrecker winch, and air compressor.  Since the photos posted were taken I have made some top bows and sewn a full lenght bikini top for it.  Made out of black canvas.  I also added a Extend-a-Bed to this vehicle.  There just isn’t any room back there to carry anything and I wasn’t planning on using the boom so I added the extension.

1977 Jeep CJ7. This satisfied my need to go fast every now and again.  V8 304, 4.10 gears, ……  This jeep is a perfect driver and restored with the same care as every vehicle that comes thru my shop.

1968 CJ5 Jeep-a-Trench. This is an unrestored CJ5 bought from the original owner a couple years ago.  Everything is there and is a great example of a trencher.  Runs and drives but smokes like crazy.   Awaiting restoration.

196?  CJ5 Snowblower Jeep. Not exactly sure of the year.  This came from an airport and has 109 miles on it.  Runs perfect, has the T-98 4 speed in it, but it is very rusty.  Body will need replacing.

CJ5 10001 Cut Away Jeep Chassis . This jeep chassis is a cut away display model made by Willys.  It has every option you could install on a jeep at the time and everything is cut open so you could see the operation of it.  Front winch, governor, twin stick pto, rear gearbox, and right angle pulley.  A true piece of history.

That about covers the vehicles.  Also included in this sale is every piece of literature, memoriabilia, jeep toy, etc.. that I have collected over the past 30 years.  If it is jeep related I probably have it…. bought out a lot of dealers and collected a lot of signs, and early salesmens books.

The Jeep Toy collection is an impressive one and includes #92 of the Fine Art Model of the ww2 MB.   Fine art models got into a battle with Chrysler a while back over making these and it is very rare to ever see one for sale.   You will receive #92 with this collection.

Fiberglass CJ-7 Body and more Chino Valley, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

This might be a good deal if you need to replace your CJ-7 body.

“Have a complete new fiberglass body, from the 1 piece front end to rear of the tub, including the windshield frame, body mounting kit, throttle bracket, and How To CD. Also have a 1986 Laredo rusty smashed tub with a Clear AZ title and some other misc parts laying around I’ll throw in. Just the fiberglass would cost you about $2200 plus shipping and tax, I’m thinking a value of around $1500. Looking for a used #7000 car hauler type trailer, tractors, military vehicles, short or long guns, vertical milling machine. Just starting a Willys CJ3B project. Open to most anything. Kind of taking up inside storage space, so I would like to see it on a trailer leaving the yard, before the next project starts taking up space.”

1985 CJ-7 Masquerading as M-38A1 **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5400.

Located in Windsor, Rhode Island.

While this may be a fine jeep, claiming that, except for the longer length of a CJ-7, this is a ‘perfect copy’ of a M-38A1 seems a bit dishonest to me. Exactly what part of this jeep is a ‘perfect copy’ of a M-38A1?

“Up for sale is a Korean war era M38A1 1985 CJ7 MASQUARADE. Apart from the fact that CJ7s are about 8 inches longer this is a perfect copy. Its got a 5 speed transmision with the AMC 258 L6 motor and the 3.31 axel to gear ratio. And good 28′ wheels and tires. Only 130,000 miles on it (pretty low for a jeep) …. Military stuff: Comes with “lusterless forest green” high test military paint job as well as has “USN 023990″ painted on hood (yes the navy actually had more green jeeps then grey jeeps). Has military canvas seats, an authentic m38a1 dashboard (with all gauges hooked up and working, military black out lights and locking toggle switches (including blackout light, convoy lights and military rear and front light clusters). Comes with digital camo hard top and authentic jerry can and bracket.”

Lesson #37 — Try BEFORE you build


1980_cj7_siltThis is funny.  Built by someone who had never actually rock-crawled before, this seller has a 1980 CJ-7 Rock Crawler for sale.  The fact that this seller tested his jeep in moab with just a roll bar suggests a rookie status, and leaves me wondering what other details he left out of his build.  Read the rest of this to learn why he is selling his jeep.

“1980 CJ-7 Rock Crawler for Sale or trade. Price is negotiable make a decent offer. I have $8,000 invested in the beast. I would love to trade for a decent Toyota.
1980 Jeep CJ-7. New Straight 6 less than 3 thousand miles. New Automatic transmission less than 1000 miles. New 5.38 gears. New lock right lockers in both axels. Full width Dana 44 front and Dana 60 rear. 9 bolt pattern wheels. The axels came off a 1970 J-20, ¾ ton pickup. 38 Inch buck shot mud tires with a new spare and bead lock rims …. This Jeep is ready to crawl right now. Runs perfect and drives ok on the pavement.

I built this baby to rock crawl. After I got her going my Dad and Brother took me on my first rock crawling trip! Moab’s Pritchet Canyon. We warmed up on Potato salad hill the day before and some fun trails around town, I really thought I was something with the easy trails, the jeep never missed a beat.  The next day we drove Pritchet. I only had to winch over two obstacles. I actually made it over the rocker knocker without winching. The rest of our group had to winch up. She made this rookie feel safe and even looked like I knew what I was doing. It is a great crawler. This was a year ago last March.

After years of hearing my Brother and Dad’s stories about the trails I finally built a jeep and took a ride. I hated every minute of it.

So now the jeep is yours if you want it.  I am looking to trade for a good running Toyota pickup or 4-runner. Maybe even a Nissan. My selling price is negotiable. I want something I can tow my small camper up and down the highway/  The CJ is not pretty, but mechanically it is pristine.  Call Ed at 970-379-3283 or 970-876-0726 ”
