“It has to go! She is getting upset! Price drop…First one to show with $3750 cash takes it home. 1957 Jeep Willys CJ5. 3speed with overdrive. New brake master cylinder. Tilt wheel. Very good body. Runs great. I believe it is the Chevy 4cyl 153 cu in. Not sure on the mileage. Unfortunately I can only tell you what I was told when I bought this on September 4th, 2019. I can give you the number of the person who sold it to me. Was told that it was part of a divorce settlement and that it sat in storage for the last 15 years. The reason I am selling this Jeep is that I was supposed to be looking at a boat the day I bought the Jeep. She said I don’t need another vehicle. I drove it around the community 3 times since Sept. 4th and that’s it. Needless to say, the Jeep has been sitting in my shop since I bought it. Come take a look. It’s a nice rig. Thank you, Woody”
