“1951 Willys Jeep. Less than 50 miles on full rebuild. 99% restored. Missing only windshield wipers and an emergency brake to be 100%. Must see to believe. Clean title. $7,000. Serious inquiries only. NO CALLS AFTER 8:00pm. Seller motivated.”

(11/05/2014) Appears to have a MB/GPW body with a tailgate. Maybe a replacement body?
“Fresh off the dear lease, this truck is ready to go back into service as a hunting vehicle or a driver around town, we are in the process of sprucing it up a bit and will be ready soon. Everything on this jeep works, and she runs and drives good. She has locking hubs on her axles, full size spare, full enclosure with windows and doors. Call or text to make it yours today.”
This 1940s card seems appropriate for today. Looks a lot like a Slat Grille MB.
Steve found this unusual article about a soldier that lost his jeep and trailer. As punishment, his pay was docked by the cost of the jeep. Here’s a link to the original article.
But, not everyone played by the book. Here’s a story Steve found about a soldier who wasn’t going to put up with following the rules. It was copied and posted here: http://www.ww2f.com/topic/18434-paris-soldiers-vs-combat-soldiers/
A Soldier Strips the Romance out of Life at War
Post #188 Note:- Gen. J.C.H.Lee was known to Combat GIs as
J***S C****T Himself!! Not affectionately!!
A few days after I made the above post I recalled an incident
I was involved in Paris that showed the real difference between
their life and it’s absurdity that the Army allowed to exist.
A man in our unit was located by the Red Cross so that he
could be returned home as one of his brothers was KIA and
another lost his right arm and since the family was a farming
family he was needed more there than in the ETO.
This unpublished Life Magazine photo was published by this site in 2010. During the liberation of Paris, German soldiers remained in the city, occasionally acting as snipers. In this photo, a French family seeks shelter next to a jeep form a sniper.
Here’s a great press photo of the Ford GP’s unveiling. It’s from the same event this video was taken.

Marc spotted a 1962 photo of Queen Elizabeth on a CJ-3B inspecting troops in India with President Nehru. This press photo is currently available on eBay.

(From 2012) Mitch forwarded this scanned photograph. It shows either Queen Elizabeth (or Princess Elizabeth) in a nicely modifiedMB/GPW. I’ve looked for other photographs of this jeep, but haven’t found any. I also have yet to discover what book this came from. If anyone could supply that information, it would be helpful! Here’s one of her in a more conventional WWII jeep.
Marc spotted this unusual photo of a CJ-6 on rails.
No pics provided. Might be interesting.

Runs and drives. May be worth a look.
“1943 Ford GPW / F-Script Jeep.
Used on ranch for the past 50+ years. Starts, runs, drives. Can be used for ranching, stump pulling or hunting. Not a Parade Queen, but a hundred smiles to the gallon. Twin Stick Xfer case, 4×4 works. 4 cyl. Go Devil motor. 3 Spd. manual shift. No title, bill of sale only. Cash on the barrel preferred, no trades please.
Includes extra hood, wind-shield insert, (needs glass) and a couple of old army rims. Recent rebuilt starter, front brakes, and carb. Speedo, Oil PSI & Engine Temp gauges work. 10 Gallon fuel tank under driver’s seat. Converted to 12v. It’s a blast out on the trails. Too many projects in the barn.
**Although this old mountain goat is virtually bullet proof, (heck it’s 73+ years old) no warranty is expressed or implied. Can deliver within reason. This is the one that Won WWII folk’s…own some real history! Thanks for looking & have a great day.”
Might have engine trouble.
“1959 Willys CJ-6 Jeep. 4 cylinder, 4 wheel drive. Repairs that have been done in the last year or so include a brand new clutch, radiator, seat, leaf springs, shocks, u-joints, fuel pump, exhaust system, and much more. I have done a tremendous amount of work to this jeep. Just recently it developed a noise in the engine. The engine runs but misses and I’m not sure what the noise is. I have no time to make any more repairs. I have owned this jeep for over ten years and it has always operated fine. We have maintained it very well. This would be a good opportunity for someone who knows jeeps to make the repairs and own a rare model jeep.”
UPDATE: Still Available. Pics now available.

Will consider trade of equal value. This jeep is a classic that is in wonderful shape so no low ball offers!”
“1977 mail jeep. Rebuilt transmission, plenty of new parts.”
Listed as a 1954, it may be a CJ-2A based on the windshield.
“1954 Jeep Willy’s with plow. Power angle plow (6′). Jeep frame need work, no brakes, lights, etc. I have someone interested in jeep without plow, willing to sell plow separately. Asking $500.00 for plow alone. Jeep and plow was used to plow private drive for last 18 years.”
It’s a parts jeep that may have potential.
“I have for sale a CJ2A. Bill of sale only. This has the original drivetrain but does not run. Motor is stuck. Trans and tcase shift. I do have another motor that is unstuck that I could add in for the right deal. The body is in good shape for the year. It is not perfect but is solid compared to most that you find. Frame is solid as well. The frame does roll well.”
