“Owned for over 20 years and driven very little.
Mileage 31,402
Runs very well. Very little rust.
I added one leaf spring to all 4 wheels. (The springs can easily be removed.) I put on muffler and dual exhaust. Reupholstered seats. I put 2 new 12-volt batteries in last year. Tires are in pretty good shape.
Look at pictures!
No tire kickers; serious inquiries only.
I listed the condition as “good” only because the vehicle is 66 years old, but I consider the condition as “very good””

“This Jeep was setting beside the neighbors barn at a property my son purchased. I love old Jeeps so I made him an offer. He said he had owned it for 20 years, hadn’t driven it for at least 10 years and couldn’t find the title.
Got it home, put in new spark plugs and gas and it started right up.
-It is completely original
-Flathead 4 cylinder, This is the famous L4-134 flathead engine, nicknamed “Go Devil” because of its
reliability.
-T90 transmission
-twin stick transfer case
-No holes cut in dash or anywhere else.
-It needs complete tune up. plug wires, points, distributor cap, etc. and a carburetor rebuild. It runs rough.
-I put on a set of roller tires. They are good to drive around on but they don’t make it look good.
– rust in the usual places, but one of the least rusty Jeeps I have owned.
-This would make an excellent hunting rig
Again, NO TITLE”

Jeep in the 1963 Episode “I’ll Be Judge — I’ll Be Jury”

Blaine share this brief look at the February 13th, 1963, episode of the Alfred Hitchcock Hour, where in the first 30 seconds of the show, a jeep almost runs over one of the main characters. The jeep has an odd windshield; it looks a little wider than normal.
