This looks good.
“This is my personal Jeep. I bought it in 1986 as part of a consignment of military vehicles from Camp Mabry in Austin, TX. Runs great. Engine, transmission, drive train, all body parts, and seats are as they were when the Jeep came out of Camp Mabry. Painted in 1987. Carb, wiring harness, side rear-view mirror are old/new replacements. The only non-military part is the water temp gauge. The Jeep has been kept in covered parking for the last 16 years in the high desert of Fort Davis, TX. Virtually no rust.”
Seems to be a good price.
“Original drive train. Reupholstered seats. Tires in good shape. Soft top and doors in excellent condition. Was driven in the Newport Hill Climb.”
It runs. It looks to be a CJ-3A chassis with an M-38A1 body.
“This is a 1962 Willy’s Jeep 4×4 with all original 4 cylinder/3 speed running gear. Has new upholstery, new tires, new mag wheels, all new wiring under dash.”

“I have a jeep that I have had for a while, I have done some work to it and put some original parts on it that were missing when found. It runs and drives but could use a few things here and there to make it road worthy. The 4 wheel drive does work. I have the original gas tank and cover that goes around the gas tank. it will go with it for the right price …. key word right price.. no trades no bartering just cash.. no movers no checks while you are out at sea or whatever it is this week”
This is an ex-fire station jeep, which would explain the unusual paint job.

“1952 USMC version. Running condition and partial rebuilt. Own a piece of military history made in America. I personalized this to Olive Drab like the Army Jeeps, but the true USMC version is painted in Mountain Green, which is just a dark green color.
