1957 CJ-5 Hesperia, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(08/15/2012) Here’s an unusual CJ-5.  It appears to have been modified by the same people/person who created these other modified jeeps, an observation I’m basing on the top.  Given the jeep is from Hesperia, there’s a very good change it is the same group.  Note that the jeep was stored for more than three decades.

“Here’s my 1957 jeep, it was stored from around the late 70’s till 2010, still has the original california black plate, runs and drives great!!

paint, interior, and engine change where done around 1960, was owned and customized by a california car customizer in the fresno area

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.  Could this also be this flattie? It’s got a Muller Top

(11/17/2011) This is a nice build.  I think the thunderbird seat looks good in it. Here are similar flatties.

STORY BEHIND THIS LITTLE JEEPMy buddy is the second owner of the Willys, it’s been in his family since 1967. His dad bought her from a neighbors wife after the original owner passed away. Most of the modifications were done in the 60’s, she’s all original steel and been kept in that 60’s style. The springs and shocks have been upgraded and motor was rebuilt about 5 years ago, the 5k miles is original to the motor and the speedo reflects it. The paint looks very good, there is a few scratches where your feet drag getting in. The body seams were all welded properly, not just covered up and there has never been any body rust. The most off road she’s seen is Deer Hunting, so mainly Forrest type roads and never been wrecked. It’s a great little rig that would make a cool daily driver or weekender.”

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,000. It has a Muller Top.

UPDATE:  More pics.  Some interesting pics of the custom soft top.  Price dropped to $10,000.  This also comes with the electric overdrive, which demonstrates you can sneak one of these behind a transfercase in a flattie.

1947 CJ-2A Los Molinos, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

I like this one.  If it were closer ….. This appears to be an old club jeep with the rare windshield mod and some great old slot rims.  It also has an updated column, probably power steering, and likely swing pedals.  This might make a good foundation for an old school build.

1948 CJ-2A West Jordan, Ut $4200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , , .

Brett spotted this interesting find.  There are at least 3 unusual features on this CJ.  The most obvious one is the paint job; unclear what the inspiration was, but it’s unusual.  The second feature is the automatic transmission that has a column shift rather than a floorshift, which is a clever mod.  Finally, while I have seen expanded windshields, I can not remember seeing an expanded windshield that uses a CJ-2A frame (with the exception of the one below this post — strange how these things surface sometimes).

1947 CJ-2A Peoria, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3300

(02/12/09) This CJ-2A has a number of custom details.  The engine compartment looks nicely laid out. This jeep also sports the enlarged windshield; I’m not certain if this is custom or an aftermarket product?? .

“1947 Willys jeep with Chevy 283 small block (runs great), 3 speed, NO RUST,set up for duel optima batteries, rewired the whole jeep, took all the old nuts and bolts and replaced them with new,full roll cage,costom bumpers, holds matching (new) 33×14.50 spare tire and Hi-lift jack mount, $600 Holey truck avenger, $800 clutch, Exhaust, rhino liner tub, excelent front seats with back bench seat (seat belts), Custom windsheild and doors that lock, custom Cooper top, Racho suspension (leaf springs, shocks, shackles) Dana 30 front with disc brakes and locker, Dana 44 rear,too much to remember but I have reciepts for allmost everything I’ve done to it in the last 14 years. I’ve only put around 200 miles on it since I’ve owned it which means everything is in like new condition except for paint has brush scratches, 2 ez fix dents (nothing bigger than a lemon). Dana 44 left side axle shaft is bent and needs to be replaced (not the whole axle assembly). Theres a lot more but cant remember everything. Point is.. if you like the jeep and you want something classic that is a major head turner for the family to enjoy for years to come like my family and I have enjoyed. It’s the most reliable old jeep in the world:) I used to put car seats in it and me and my girls would be off finding those hidden fishing holes and camp sites. I thought I would own this jeep for ever but I lost my good job and now I’m under paid and have to make big sacrifices. I’ve already done everything that needs to be done to an old jeep so now all you have to do is make me an offer and steal it. ”
