1959 Maverick(?) Wagon Lakeway, TX $24,000

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods • TAGS: , .

Not much Maverick left in this updated and modified wagon.

https://austin.craigslist.org/cto/d/austin-1959-willys-wagon-maverick/7269435754.html

“I am testing the waters to sell or trade my Willys. If sold I am asking $24K. If trade I want something equal in value or possibly cash on top.

This 1959 Willys Wagon Maverick was restored a few years back by a coffee shop in southern California. They reportedly spent $30K to get it finished. Unfortunately, that coffee shop went tits up so they sold the Willys to the guy I purchased it from. This car is a nice driver not a show car. It has power windows, power steering, A/C, Heat, CD with bluetooth. It has a chevy 350 motor with an automatic transmission. This thing gets lots of attention. It will come with the original vintage roof rack and some other odds and ends.  Car is registered in TX but has a CA title in my name.”

1960 “Willy X Jeep” Salado, TX $16,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

Can’t say that I’ve ever heard of a “Willy X Jeep”? Looks like a plain old CJ-5 to me.

https://killeen.craigslist.org/for/d/salado-1960-willy-jeep/7266003825.html

“This is the nicest and most original 1960 Willy X Jeep you will find under $25,000. 6592 original miles. In 2012 @ 2346 miles a complete rebuild was performed on the entire vehicle, costing $11,000. ALL receipts for the rebuild on hand as well as original jeep documents. Everything on the Jeep works as it should. One light switch knob handle is broken. Little to NO rust, tires are in great condition, 4WD works as it should. It is a one of a kind Jeep. You would have to pay $25,000 to come anywhere close to the quality and collector value of this jeep. This is not a Jeep to slap big wheels on and go mudding. It’s just a pleasure to own this piece of history. I have enjoyed owning this Jeep but as with its second owner, it is hard on my back. I am the 4th owner. You could take this Jeep to a show as it is.”

Painting of Coffee Plantation CJ-5 on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

I’m not sure what this is worth. It is currently priced at a buy-it-now price of $92.

View all the information on eBay

“Wonderful artist rendering of CJ-5 Jeep. 1970s in a coffee plantation or cocoa plantation setting. (I’m thinking inspired by the popular TV icon Juan Valdez). Not sure if this was done for Ford Brazil or AMC given that Ford do Brasil built these for the South American market. In any event, this is a fantastic, original rendering on artist board of the era. You can see pencil lines underneath paint. I’m not an artist so I don’t know if it’s acrylic paint or watercolor or ???

Measures approx 16″ x 11″ and is in very good condition for its age. There Issa bit of very faint spotting in the yellow sky area but it’s barely noticeable; corners are bumped but framing will cover that. The blue strip at bottom of rendering appears to be painted tape.”
