1951 CJ-3A/M-38/CJ-2A Gloster, LA $15,000


This is a mix of parts. The body is M-38, but the chassis is CJ, probably CJ-3A given the engine and radiator. The Windshield is obviously CJ-2A.

“1951 willis jeep dont know much about it, try n to sell it for my neighbor. He has all the paperwork jeep is clean.”

1946 CJ-2A Belton, TX $500


Not much value in this CJ-2A #41885 (I think that’s the number). The serial number data plate might just be the most valuable item.

1947 CJ-2A Gulfport, MS $9000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $9000.

The CJ-2A was the SECOND model sold to civilians? What was the first? Maybe seller meant the second year of sales?

“This is a REAL Jeep; it is the SECOND model Jeep sold for/to civilians after WWII. It was rebuilt by the previous owner and has a 4-cylinder, Go-Devil engine, 4-leaf suspension, 3-speed manual transmission, transfer case shifter, and range shifter, military-style tires (in excellent condition), 5-gallon external/spare fuel can (w/spout), and a canvas “summer top” (no sides) w/frame (not pictured). Also has an A-frame tow-bar which bolts to the front bumper. Maximum (street) speed is 45 MPH. Four wheel drive works and has front-axle locking hubs. It is a definite attention-getter, and crowd-pleaser. Would make anyone’s Christmas the BEST EVER! Price is FIRM”

Neil Young & His 1951 Jeepster

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

UPDATE: Mark found this photo which seems like it could have been taken at the same time the video was shot:


Mike spotted this video of Neil Young driving his 1951 Jeepster. Unfortunately, I cannot embed the video, so a screenshot will have to make do. You can see the video snippet of the Jeepster at the start of a video with Neil Young playing “Old Man”. It appears the old man rancher that inspired the song can also be seen.

I believe this is the same Jeepster that Vernon (and his aliases) have mentioned over the years. Neil’s Jeepster has the Lightning (inline 6) engine. It also has the JEEP brass tag and a 673 has the emblem, plug Vernon’s overdrive solenoid.

Per Vernon, “noted rock star NEIL YOUNG opted for the 51 — in 69 he drove it from LA to his new ranch in LA HONDA , guitars in the back , gold records , the TURTLES drummer JOHNNY BARBATA rode shotgun — he had to get out of LA and hide in the wilderness , people were picking him apart”
… and …
“NEIL YOUNG wont drive his fossil fueled classic cars anymore — he’s went utterly , completely GREEN ( listen to his GREENDALE album ) — his 1951 WILLYS OVERLAND JEEPSTER PHAETON is now a ” museum piece ” gathering dust”.


Neil Young in his 1951 Jeepster. Standing next to it looks like David Crosby to me.

Jeepsters and the Sunkist Lady

UPDATE: This article provides more information about this stunt Jeepster and plane. It was published in the March 20, 1949, issue of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

1949-03-20-fort-worth-star-telegram-jeep-jockey-endurance-jeepster-plane1-lores 1949-03-20-fort-worth-star-telegram-jeep-jockey-endurance-jeepster-plane2-lores


Originally Published Dec 8, 2012:

The Sunkist Lady was an Aeronca 15AC Sedan airplane flown by Dick Riedel and Bill Barris used to set a world-record for endurance flight.  They spent a total of 1008 hours and 2 minutes aboard the airplane, ending their flight in April of 1949. Unfortunately for them, their record was broken six months later.

What makes this relevant for jeep fans was that to keep the plan in the air, the crew used Jeepsters borrowed from local dealers to race down the airport runway so the crew could hand fuel and food to the two pilots.

Thanks to Colin for forwarding the story!

Here is a link to a story and a video about the flight (124 MB):
