The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .

Powered by the original Hurricane 4 cylinder F-Head gas engine. 3 speed manual transmission, 2 speed transfer case and 2 or 4 wheel drive.

“1955 Military Jeep. This is a communications model jeep, which has an overdrive transmission. The jeep was restored a few years ago, and the only part of the jeep that is not correct is the rims and tires. They were changed out for a more comfortable ride on the pavement. I do not have the original rims and tires anymore. The jeep runs and looks great. $15,000 OBO. Serious inquires only, and no brokers please. Clean Title and ready to go.”
Is that supposed to be a Netherlands flag on the hood?
“This jeep is in good original condition. Just hit 40,000 miles. Jeep is close to being 100% original. Replaced batteries and motor was rebuilt less than 300 miles ago. Runs and drives great. Would make the perfect candidate if you wanted to do a frame off restoration there is no rust in the vehicle or frame. You could keep the vehicle just like it is and enjoy its originality.”

“For sale: 1955 M38A1 Jeep. I started on this jeep with plans for a full restoration but found a flat fender that has pulled my attention and resources away so this one needs to find a new home. The Jeep has been converted to 12v and comes equipped with new locking hubs and has a vintage warn overdrive installed. It and runs and drives well with many new parts already installed including;
-Front and rear seat canvas and cushions
-Wheel cylinders, master cylinder, and brake shoes
-Soft brake lines
-Rebuilt original fuel/vacuum pump
-Rebuilt original carburetor
-Outer wheel seals
-All pinion and output seals
-NDCC tires and tubes
This machine has it’s share of dings and dents and would make a great trail/parade vehicle as it sits but I’m also including two more parts jeeps and several crates of parts to help facilitate a complete restoration if desired. I’m hoping to get out of M series jeeps so buyer will get everything I have for one price. There are enough parts included to finish the jeep and probably have a really good table at the swap meet for the next couple of years. I’m looking to get $6500 or best offer for the whole package. I have a clear title for the jeep and it’s currently registered with a vintage plate in Washington State. ”
It arrived in a box in pretty rough shape. Looks like the seller did a lot of work.
