UPDATE: Strangely, this is also list as being in Burbank at a price of $6900.

If you look closely at the pic, you can see there’s diamond plating extending the hood so that is will reach the grill. An even closer look reveals a panel between the back of the fender and the cowl. The body is likely sitting on a post-1971 CJ-5 chassis.

1953 CJ-3A JeepRod Queen Creek, AZ $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Jeep Rods • TAGS: .

Has some unusual mods.

“Runs great! I personally have changed the speakers, radio, alternator, battery, window, brake booster, and the brake proportioning valve. It’s a kit car, it has the body of a 53 jeep willys and the engine is a 2005 ford mustang. It’s my daily driver and I take it offroading. It’s very good with offroading and on the street. It is registered as an ATV so the insurance is very cheap and it is registered for both street and offroading. Automatic. Clean title clean everything. 3000 or OBO or a trade for anything reasonable. Nothing is wrong with it just looking forward don’t only want 2 seats so I can hang with more friends and something with better gas mileage. It gets pretty good gas mileage. On a full tank of gas it’ll take about a week and half til empty.”

I suspect this is a 1948 CJ-2A with a 3B fiberglass body. It appears to be a Bobcat body based on the wide rim around the edge. Could be a good price.

1958 FC-150 Luther, IA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. Status Unknown.

Some custom work added some handy steps. The bed tilts.

1958-fc150-luther-ia

“We have had our FC150 at the farm doing work since we purchased it 5 years ago. I once heard somebody describe the FC150 as a “Tractor with a cab and heater”! This is a very accurate statement! This Jeep truly goes anywhere! I have never had it stuck or even struggle thru our deep ravines and hills! But over the last year we haven’t used it as much as we use to and decided its time to sell.

The Jeep appears to have its original engine which runs great! It starts easily if you start it every day or two but if you leave it sit for a week or so then it takes a little primer (a shot of carb cleaner) to get it started. It shifts thru all four gears with no issues and idles well. A tune up was done about a year ago which consisted of new plugs, oil and carburetor rebuild. I also removed and cleaned the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump and filter. I am not sure what the top speed of the vehicle is but my guess would be 40 -45 mph. The 4 wheel drive works great! It has the lock out hubs but I have never switched them and assume they work.

All hydraulics work great! The pump is powered by a PTO which is activated by a hand pull. The winch works great( I have never been stuck but stretched the cable out and rewound it by pulling the jeep backwards). The snow plow moves up and down smoothly but I have never had a blade on it. And of course the custom diamond plate dump bed works awesome! I have loaded the back end full of red oak-drove out of the woods-backed up to my wood pile and dumped the entire contents with no problems!

1943 GPW Auburn, WA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price increased to $20k. Seller believes this was a 4wheel steer jeep. Based my research, 50 GPW 4WS were produced, but were they produced as late as 1943?

(07/11/2017) Seller thinks those tires and rims are original …. this has a gas tank in the rear.

“So I picked up this 1943 Willis flat fender ford built and it just so happens to be model gpw-4ws and that meens a lot actuall makes it a 4 wheel steering jeep that is one of the 50 they made.the rear steering is unhooked but its all there and the numbers are right on so as you can imagine my numbers are going up a lot.the last one that sold was a couple years ago n was in a lot worse shape then mine n went for 46,000 that being said mine only has 95000 miles it still has the original tires n wheels it also has a brand new top and original cast iron 4cyl engine n here’s the deal this thing is old n needs to be cherished n I need a jeep that is trail ready so if I sold it I would be asking 20,000 so any tj or rubicon 4dr and some cash works or just cash me out n double your money in a month or two at auction.i just want something that’s dependable for me to take my kids out in will do. ”
