“This is an original unmodified military M38a1. (the civilian version was the Cj5)
Runs well. Less than 5,000 miles on rebuilt engine. Stops straight.
Registered. Clean title.
Has original data plates (indicates serial number/date of delivery).
Body is original. No body rot. No additional welding or cutting to the body anywhere. Nothing has been modified, with the exception of added turn signals, third brake light and the Warn all speed overdrive. (That’s an overdrive for each gear….nice to have since these military Jeeps from that era were geared a bit low).
The electrical system is correct at 24v along with the correct distributor, voltage regulator and generator. Springs are original.
Original/stock rims and NDCC tires. Not lifted.
Has 3 year old canvas winter top, no side curtains or doors included.
Has correct pintle trailer hitch.”
Bob spotted this CJ-5. Looks in good shape for the price.

Original steel tub that is in overall good condition. 6 cyl 258 motor, 4 speed manual transmission, new black soft top and black bikini top, new Cragar rims, tires with 80% tread and a good spare, tow bar, new muffler. The transfer case and transmission works shifts well. Needs a new steering gear but it is drivable, exhaust manifold or gasket is leaking – have new aftermarket exhaust manifold and gasket, new fuel gauge, temp gauge and radio quit working. The jeep is over 30 years old and not perfect but overall solid. Contact for more information or photos. Not interested in any trades”

“1948 CJ2A — 2nd owner; turn the key and ready to roll –don’t work on it — enjoy it. I bought the jeep a couple years back and find I don’t use it enough; too busy with work and kids. It has been fun crawling it through the local adobe mud fields in town and working on it, but time to pass it on. Located in Petaluma, CA.
1965 Buick 225 V6 engine; full tune up Aug. 2013
12V with new single wire alternator Aug. 2013
Carb rebuilt (sub out and returned for install) Aug 2013 due to accelerate pump issue. The float tends to sticks with sharp left turns. The manufacturer specs for the carb float just don’t work. I had resolved before rebuild and can do again.
4 speed T90 transmission (1st is a granny) new case oil. Entire driveline is good.
Transfer case with Rhino PTO drives front Rhino hydraulic winch; 538s differentials — all new oils.
New park brake drum shoes (not installed as I wanted to ensure leaking stopped). Can re-install or provided pics/manual before my busy work season begins.
31 tires w/15″ wheels with excellent tread; digs in great. sidewalls solid.
Full canvas top (tan) and doors — kept the rain out just fine last winter.
Tow bar with swiveling, pintle hook. Must be rated 30k lbs (guessing). Way over sized for the jeep weight.
Swing gas can and spare tire rack; spare and 2 cans included. Currently gate is off as PO welded tailgate and I broke weld set up to operate the gate.
Body is in good shape for a 65 yr old. Tool box has some rust out. Otherwise fairly clean of rust issues.
Brakes — probably need adjustment. I never looked at the shoes as the tires and gearing always slowed the jeep just fine.
PO welded windshield frame as one unit, but with parts and work it can be restored to tilt open. Vac wiper works fine.
Horn is from a 1947 CJ2A, so solid sound for the purist.
Jeep is kept in garage.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $2600.
(09/13/2014) Runs, but is a project.
“1950 Willys CJ3A in overall good shape – needs some work/restoration but a great start. The engine is complete and does start/run.
Needs brakes gone through, also needs new fuel lines. Tub has had some fiberglass repairs done over the years. I put a new carb and fuel pump in it, battery is relatively new (less than a year), new cap/rotor, wires, plugs, oil and filter.
It’s a bit of a project but a great start for someone. Call or email if interested.”
This runs and drives.
“1960 Willy Jeep
Small V8 Engine
Runs & Drives
UPDATE: Price dropped to $8500.
(10/14/2014) I suspect this is a replacement body. It looks in good shape.
“Selling my 48 Willy’s. Body is very straight with no rust. Original motor and drive train is tight and runs great. Previous owner had the trans and steering box rebuilt. Converted to 12 volt. Rebuilt carb. Power windows, just kidding. Very simple Jeep. Not built for the Highways, top speed is about 50 MPG. Very fun for around town, Tahoe, getting morning coffee or four wheeling on your huge ranch. Feel free to call or text. Please no email for I don’t check this one often at all. I have the soft top and soft full doors. Great adventure mobile.”
This is a mix of parts.
“Great Willys jeep for sale. 1942 Frame, motor, and front clip. 1946 tub. Famous flat head L134 Go devil engine. Was used in movies. The jeep runs and drives, also can be towed behind. WWII jerry cans and ax/shovel kit come with. Make an offer.”
Runs roughly. The front bumper isn’t original.
“Built by Kaiser – same as Willys. rust free, converted to 12 volts, was stored in garage for last five years, runs rough, very low mileage, planned to restore to military specs but too many projects. Five new tires.”
UPDATE: Still Available. Might have a CJ-2A VEC body.
“1951 Willy’s CJ3A Jeep. V-6 231 4 barrel 4 speed with headers. Also have another V-6 231 motor that goes with it. Asking $3000.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(07/29/09) Lots of nice detail work here.
“Year: 1949, Model: Willy CJ2A, Miles: Under 2000, Lic. #: 49WILYZ, Motor: 383 Stroker, Transmission: 350 Auto, Rear end: Ford 9”, Other: Fuel cell, nitrous, dual exhaust, Invest (by previous owner and myself): Over $40,000, 2000 appraisal: $23,500, Appraisal rating: A+ (Concourse Show).”
Seller isn’t sure about selling this.
“I’m thinking about trading my 1950 Willy’s Jeep for an enjoyable daily driver. It has a 283 V8, manual transmission and Dana transfer case from a 1965 chevy truck, over sized radiator, Dana axles, Flowmaster dual exhaust, and sits on 33″ tires. It’s a head turner and it’s impossible to drive around town without people asking about it or saying how cool it is. In low gear range, it’ll literally climb trees. I know, I’ve done it. It is a 1950 so it has its quirks, but it runs and drives well. I just haven’t had time for any tlc for the last couple of years and would like to see it go to a good home, while I get a car I can drive around when when the weather’s bad. I could definitely use a truck, but am open to ideas. Would love a 4wd Tahoe or Yukon with a 5.3 V8 in it…. I’m sure I’d probably take the right cash offer if it came along.”
No title. Hasn’t run in a while.
“Vintage CJ3A Willys Jeep. THERE IS NO TITLE. Serial number 452 GB1 15021. Has original flathead four cylinder engine, 3 speed transmission, and is 4 wheel drive. The engine ran when parked (6 years ago), and is not stuck. The tires hold air. The running gear is in ok shape. The body is in rough condition. 16″ OEM wheels. The tires hold air. This Jeep has been modified and was used as a hunting truck. Has built in tow bar (uses a 1 7/8″ ball). What you see in the pictures is what you get. THERE IS NO TITLE.”
It’s a project.
“This is a project. It needs to be seen in person. The Chevy Vortec engine came out of a 2002 Chev truck and is the same engine used in the Blazer. It includes automatic transmission and 4wd output. The frame has been modified for this engine but some work remains to be done. The frame was sand blasted to bare metal, then primered and then painted with Imron. The two seats have been reupholstered. It will take a couple trailers to transport everything. It is stored in a storage garage in Los Angeles.”

“This Jeep has been around in the family for years, has originals parts but outer body needs some work. Definitely a restoration project I would think, but everything still there. Is 4 wheel drive. It has 2-5 Gallon Gas Cans, Front mounted Winch, Soft cover with doors, Dual Gas Tanks, Oversize radiator, Center Mount double rifle Rack and Front row bar in and hitch in rear This would be great for someone who loves these kind of cars because they are collectibles. Has awesome engine, 327 bored over to 331, compression pistons 10 1/2 to 1, 8 cylinders, has hot rod engine, The jeep is mechanically sound. Low, low gears for climbing. It has been sitting for years, so it will need some work to start it up I would think. The drive frame is fine, engine frame, axle, etc. are all good.”
The driver’s side step is a little bent.
