Jack spotted this diesel modified CJ-5.
“Mercedes turbo diesel powered Jeep cj-5 for sale. It was built by the folks at Mercedes diesel 4×4 in eastern Pa and the build is documented on their site, they are the innovators of the Mercedes swap and all work is top notch. This CJ runs great, has lots of cool factor with the 5cyl om617 engine and gets 20+ MPG. It has a BDS 2″ lift on it, 4speed, new bestop supertop,32″ BFG radial all terrain tires. The frame is the cleanest I have ever seen and the all steel body is fair too, it just has some rust blisters. It hasn’t been run in winter on salty roads and has been kept up with.”
It’s diesel powered.

“I am selling my 71 cj6. This is a one of a kind vehicle and I can guarantee nobody has one like it. I have completely built it from the ground up. A cj6 is from the factory 20” longer than a cj5. I took this cj6 and cut it down the middle from front to back and widened it 14.5 inches! Yes that means it took two of everything to build this jeep, two grills, two hoods, windshield frames ect. The body sits on a 73 chevy blazer frame with 3/4 ton axles and 37 in tires. The engine is a 5.9 12 valve cummins out of an 89 dodge pickup. If you know about diesels then you know that this engine is as reliable as they get, best diesel ever made. It has a tf727 automatic transmission that was rebuilt less than 2000 miles ago, in fact the entire jeep has les than 2000 miles on it sense it was built. here is a parts list.
If you’ve been following Mitch Carter on Facebook, you know he’s been doing some great jeeping in his stock diesel-powered CJ-6 (Moab & Black Bear Pass among other places) … at least until he ran into an engine problem.
Now he’s hoping to find a second perkins 4.192 diesel engine. He thinks massey ferguson tractors, forklifts, generators, etc. Even a 4.203 indirect injected one would get him by until i can rebuild the original engine. If you have one, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below and I’ll get you in touch with him.
I’ve known Mitch since he was a young kid. He does a lot for the PNW jeeping community and is always willing to lend others a hand.
About his engine problem he wrote, “I got crossed up on a rock on the alpine loop, and the fan bit the radiator. We patched it as good as we could which got us off the trail and over one pass to silverton. And this is where i made the mistake of leaving the cap off the radiator so it wouldn’t build pressure…. the gauge only read 200* but it was fooled by hot air and not water. The engine was much hotter and I fear it’s toast. Very little compression, hard to start but will still turn over and run badly while making equally bad noises.”
A few pics from Moab earlier in the trip.

(11/01/2015) An unusual build with a Kubota diesel engine.
“1949 Willy’s Jeep with a diesel engine. This jeep was completely built with all new parts except for the frame. It has a Kubota V2203 engine. This is a one of a kind build. Over 32,000 invested . No title, bill of sale only. First 15,000 takes it. ”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000
This has a turbo, too.
“This is a beautiful 1947 Willys “Arctic” Jeep that is mostly complete in a conversion to a turbo aspirated 4 cylinder Kubota Diesel. The $1200 conversion kit is fully installed, the transmission has had a full $1200 rebuild by Bobby’s Transmission in Meridian, and I installed a $900 overdrive unit on the transmission. The $1200 turbo kit has only been test installed, and then I removed it to prevent damage while I was working on fitting the engine to the Jeep. The turbo fits perfectly….see picture. The original gas tank has been replaced with a new one, the radiator has had a commercial clean out, pressure test, and paint job, there is a new electric fan to replace the engine mounted fan, and much more. The only parts I have not yet purchased for the conversion and rebuild is either a full brake rebuild kit, or a disk brake conversion kit, which was what I was planning to install. You will also need to buy a set of CHT and turbo boost gauges. I have already purchased almost everything else to complete the conversion, including a new high end billet gas pedal and a Diesel “pull to stop” control.
This CJ-5 is powered by a Kubota.
“Kubota turbo diesel. runs great. needs tires and wheel seal. very rust free. from Colorado this year. clear title in my name.”
Looks ready for the road.
“1964 Jeep CJ5 with original Perkins Diesel. It also had the T98 4 speed transmission and a Dana 18 Transfer Case. It has an overdrive unit as well. It has been restored and Runs and Drive great. It has been repainted and all the electrical has been updated. This thing is in great shape. It has bikini top on it now and comes with a soft top with doors. I am asking $18000 obo. The jeep is located in Helena MT. ”
UPDATE: I thought this included a Perkin’s Diesel in the jeep. I now believe the Perkins is an extra motor, because the motor in the jeep is an f-head.
This runs and drives, but will need some body work.
“1965 cj6 runs and drives very little rot needs a fender no top i have many rare parts that can go with it .perkins diesel with a 4 speed, split bench seat , Dana 44 with 1 piece axles ,Dana 30 front ,gears a lift kit ect ect but for 2500 you get just the jeep very hard to find any questions call me thanks ”

“For sale is a 1985 Mitsubishi Jeep 4X4 with diesel engine.
This is a Mitsubishi clone of the CJ 3B Jeep; it has the two stick transfer case four speed transmission, lock out hubs, front and rear Power Take off, power brakes, radiator bug screen with chrome chaff guard,. heater and defroster, new tires, soft top with doors and a top for the summer time.
I have owned this for about 4 years it was imported into the USA by usdriveright./com and I bought it and had it delivered to me, this is 100% street legal, I have it insured through state farm.
It runs like a dream, it has glow plugs and starts every time.
The engine is used in Mitsubishi forklifts so it is industrial. (4DR5)
It is right hand drive like a mail jeep.
I do not know the actual miles because it is in kilometers and was imported from Japan but everything is very tight. This thing runs really good and does very economical for fuel, I have driven it around Topeka and get 35 to 37 MPG, It will go 60 mph but I do not like going that fast however 45 is very comfortable.
I took it to the cruse in car shows last year and it gets plenty of attention.
I have five of the original wheels, four are on the ground and one is in the garage, I have four aluminum wheels that will go with this, one of them is already mounted on the spare wheel.
This has a mount to attach your high lift jack.

(09/16/2014) It’s a project.
“I have for sale a early Jeep CJ5. It is pretty plain with some rust. What makes it special is this is a factory DIESEL Jeep. It came from the factory with a Perkins 4.192 diesel engine! If I am not mistaken, this is the only model Jeep CJ or Wrangler that was sold in America that had a diesel engine. There were less than 300 ever produced. They made some CJ7’s with diesels, but only in Brazil. The story goes, it was originally made for the Air Force to be used as a tug, one of those vehicles that pulls the planes and cargo around the base. It was then bought by a chicken farmer in middle Tennessee and he had it for the majority of its life. It was then sold to a friend who is a diesel mechanic, which is where I found it.
The Jeep is complete, but it is a 49 year old un-restored Jeep. The frame has a good amount of surface rust on it, but it is still in safe & usable shape. The Jeep tub does have rust, if you are going to restore it, it will need floor pans. It was on a chicken farm for most of its life, remind you, but it is by no means a rust bucket. There are little dings and scratches here and there on the tub, but overall in pretty good shape. The hood, fenders and grill are all solid. As far as interior, it has two original bucket seats, but hardly any covering left on them. The Jeep is now a black color, but looks like the original color was a baby blue.
UPDATE: Was $6000. **Status Unknown**
Here’s a truck updated with a diesel.
“FOR SALE. 1957 Jeep Pickup Willys. Very Clean on top underneath. All over. It has been inside stored for the last ten years. And…. It’s a diesel.!! It has a six cylinder Nissan diesel. I’m not sure what it came out of but it runs really well. It is a 4 speed standard with first gear very low compound range. The 4 wheel drives work too. Warn hubs. The bed is clean.
Looks like the Jeep driven on Mountain Men show.
Asking $6,000. Current tag. Title in our name. We have owned it for the last ten years.
It has a button for the glow plugs. I’ll investigate why it is not working. Currently you have to shoot a bit of starting fluid to get it to fire off. Runs great after that though.”
No pics provided. It does not run.

I have read much about the late 1970s Diesel CJs.
Mitch just found this rare jeep in a Washington State field.
He writes, ” It’s a 1966 CJ-6 with a factory 192 Perkins Diesel. Picked it up out of a farmers field just outside of Asotin, Wa. Complete and rust free minus a radiator and some front end damage from running into the back of something. 2/3- 1/3 front bench, full Meyer hard top, rear seat, even has the factory jack and lug wrench in the tool box under the seat…lol… Didn’t even know they had those. The owner had to be in his late seventies or early 80’s so some of the history was fuzzy. He thought it had been there 7 or 8 years but the last registration was from 77……Which makes me wonder if the 9,xxx some miles on the odometer might actually be correct.”
Matt forwarded this rare M-677 for sale on eBay. The seller is willing to make an early deal.
“1964 JEEP WILLYS FORWARD CONTROL FC-170 M-677 CREW CAB 4X4 MARINE ISSUE.
This is an extremely rare version of the jeep fc-170. The m-677 was a crew cab and was a military issue only. Production number estimates are between 300-700 but to my knowledge nobody knows the actual number. Very few survive today. This is a really cool little jeep and gets tons of attention. I couldn’t get it home without having to talk to people everywhere I stopped. I’ve been to many carshows and never seen one. I’ve never seen one driving or anywhere in person until I bought it. This truck is mostly original and has only had a couple owners. The gentleman I bought it from had owned it since at least 1979, maybe earlier. I have registrations going back that far in his name. I believe he purchased it from a military or government auction. Original marine nomenclature tag is on the dash. It is hard to see all the numbers in the pics, but they are clearly visible in person and nothing is worn off. Here are all the details on the jeep/willys. Included is a picture link with MANY MORE PICTURES. Also some pics of other m677’s. Thanks.
