UPDATE:  Jonathan points out that this sold for less than $1400 ($1356.13).  Someone got a solid deal!

These Jeep-A-Trenches don’t appear every day.  I love this beat up old jeep 🙂

“1948 willys jeep [but not really sure]. It is a nice early CJ with a period [first series] jeep a trench attachment. I also am including a period willys jeep option snow plow. It came off my 47 CJ. I planned on selling only the trencher but have a offer to buy another jeep with plow so I am selling the whole package. The jeep tub has rust and the roof is in rough shape also, it all can be put back together. The jeep run 3 yrs ago and I had it firing & running with gas down the carb but the starter stopped working. This is a rare piece and wouldnt take much to get it working again. It dug trenches for water, electric and a drain line over 150′ within the last 5yrs. It has good tires and a towbar for short towing. bill of sale only. no papers. Buyer to pickup or I have a local guy who can deliver it for a fee. Payment within days of end of auction. Email me with any questions.”
