1942 MB Dayton, WA $1000


DOD 1/14/42. Plates are in pretty good shape, but they are installed on a glove box door. MB 111050 with DOD of 1/13/42 is a non-glove box slat grille. It’s therefore very possible the plates on the jeep below were originally on a different jeep (or body). Includes a Bobcat hood.

“For Sale is a 1959 Willys Jeep FC170. The truck has a flathead Hurricane straight 6. The drivetrain is all there, but the engine is locked up and is not feasible to get running without a total rebuild. The truck would make a great engine swap candidate. There is some rust in the normal spots but is all very fixable. The frame is near perfect.
There is body damage, as shown in the pictures and the windshield needs to be replaced. It has a good title.

These trucks are getting hard to find. This is a project truck and a really solid starting point.”

CJ-2A Hardtop Post Falls, ID $400


This appears to have most of the elements of a Porter & Reed hardtop, except that the rear of the top is rounded. This feels like a transitional top between what was Porter & Reed and whomever purchased the company (if any one did). Early Koenig tops were similar to this, so perhaps Koenig (out of Texas) purchased Porter & Reed (out of Kansas)??

“Complete aluminum hardtop and doors for a Willy’s CJ 2A Jeep. May fit other models.
The Jeep in the pictures is not for sale. Those pictures are just for reference.
I’m unsure of the actual value so make me a reasonable offer.”

“1962 Ford M151 Vietnam era military Jeep runs and stops good, idles smooth, and is currently registered and on the road. This Jeep spent the last 20 years stored in a garage and had a new engine installed in 1997 with very little use on it since. This Jeep came from Guam and has been cut and welded back together. It drives down the road straight and gets lots of attention. I also have a hard top, doors, and heater assembly for it not pictured. The gauges and speedometer are not currently working and the tires are dry rotted. It is not perfect, but it is a driver and could be in a parade tomorrow. Contact me with any questions or if you would like to set up a time to come see it”
