1946 VEC CJ-2A Whittier, CA $14,500


This was the seller’s father’s jeep and he admits he doesn’t know a lot about it. Seller seems convinced it’s a WWII jeep. It is a nice example of an early 2A jeep, though strangely it doesn’t have tool indents (#24566)

“Now is your chance to finally own a World War 2 Army Jeep! A great addition to any collection, this one was used by a VIP at the Estrella Warbird Museum in Paso Robles, CA until my Dad bought it 6 years ago. What makes this Jeep different is that it has a working siren and flashing amber light in the rear – great for parades and car shows. It also has a column shifter which is rare on these models.

Here is what else it has:
• Period correct WWII patinaed paint, canvas top and upholstery.
• Period correct tires.
• Appears to be original body, hood, floors – oh, the stories they could tell.
• Oil pan with skid plate.
• Authentic M-1 rifle holder with reproduction rifle.
• Shovel, axe, jerry can, portable water canteen and a mortar canister (just in case).
• Hand grenade shift knob.
• New brakes, drums and brake lines.
• New carburetor, battery and shocks.
• Lockable storage compartment under passenger seat.
• CA registered 1946 license plate.
• Runs and drives great. Gauges work, lights works, hubs lock.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to see the car. The car is located in Whittier, CA and is listed for sale locally so we reserve the right to sell it prior to the auction ending. This is a used car sold as is and where is and as such there are no warranties expressed or implied. You are encouraged to inspect the car in person or hire a service prior to buying it. This was my Dad’s car and he passed away so I am only telling you the information to the best of my knowledge.”

1948? Jeepster Salt Lake City, UT $7000 (SCAM?)

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Thanks to Seth for verifying this scam. Here’s what the “seller” wrote to him:

I’m selling it because my husband died 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories, that’s the reason I want to sell it a.s.a.p.The total price is $7,000. No damage or hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained. I have clear title, without liens or loans on it, everything is under my name. Me and my son decided to sell the house and we moved to my parents house in Twin Falls, ID trying to start a new life. We need to meet up to my parents place or I can arrange delivery – it will cost the gas money and I will pay for it.

I want to use eBay Motors services (5 days of testing prior purchase) for the safety of both of us, so if you’re interested in purchasing, please provide me your full name for the bill of sale, your full address and a phone number so I can notify eBay that you’re selected as my possible buyer, and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure.

The 1) hurry to sell, 2) sell via eBay, 3) paying for delivery are three warning signs of s scam. A 2015 eBay forum post discusses a similar scam.



This appears to be a too-good-to-be-true price. Enter with caution.

It runs.

“I have a 47 Willys Jeep. It is rough and beat up. No title. Old ranchers lost it years ago. I have had it for 3 years. The ranchers had it 45 years. It has a newer overhead valve jeep engine in it. It will run if you can get it started. I think the starter is finally caput! No idea what fuel tank they put in the back is out of and I made a milk crate seat. Last time I was able to start it the engine purrs like a kitten. Fwd works. For some reason there is something cool about it. I call it, Drivable yard art! CASH ONLY! I WILL NOT RESPOND TO TEXT!”

1949 CJ-3A Los Angeles, CA Make Offer


UPDATE: Seller will take offer. Was priced at $1500.

This has a modified windshield. Here’s one that looks identical and another and one other. I don’t know if this means someone manufactured these custom windshields or it is just coincidence. It also appears to have a set of rare Cutlas “Bulldog” hubs.

“I have this willys and I need the cash. It doesn’t have the hood and basically it’s perfect for a project. Lost paperwork but a lien sale will be the best option. I’m asking 1500 but make me an offer. ”

NOS M-38A1? Hardtop Boise, ID $700


This could be a neat find if NOS. Seller shows an M-38 in the photos, yet calls it an M-38A1 top, so I’m not absolutely sure which it will fit.

“This is a brand new, freshly opened, original hard top for a M38-A1Willys Jeep. This is not an after market product or reproduction, it is an original. This hidden treasure has not seen the sunlight since 1954 when it was made.”

Updates Sunday Morning


We enjoyed our night of camping at Oregon’s Cottonwood Canyon State Park so much that we are going to spend a second night there. We had the place to ourselves last night. The purposefully primitive camping sites (no power/water/sewer/cell) are spread out, so even if this place was full, it would be pleasant. Here’s one photo. I’ll report more on this Sunday morning.
