This hit something, creating some issues that need repair. This is a project. Most interesting is the rare half cab by Kelly. It also includes a trailer.

“Im listing my fathers 1949 Willys Cj 3A Jeep. It has front end damage. The impact caused the front bumper to be pushed in which caused the grill to be pushed in towards the engine. This caused the radar to make contact with the fan and it punctured the radiator. The impact also caused the body to shift forward approximately 2 inches bending the front fenders, dashboard and it caused the rear drive shaft pop out of the transfer case . The transfer case and drive shaft are not cracked.

-The engine was rebuilt locally approximately 7 years ago.
– All tires to include the spare are mounted on 16″ rims with military style tires that were all purchased new a 1.5 years ago.
– Metal hard top with metal doors
– All new leaf springs & shock purchased new in 2017
– The body has been patched in several areas

Also included is a 1/4 ton Vietnam error trailer
The jeep runs and now needs someone who can lift the body and line back up. Its all there it just now needs some time and muscle.
Clear PA title in hand and located in Trappe PA 19426
Local pick up only & email/text with any questions.
Sold as is and will not part out”

JeepKing Hardtops

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: , .

Another interesting item in the 1957 Berg’s Truck and Parts Co (Aka the King of Jeeps) Catalog was this “Jeep King” hardtop advertisement, for both half and full-size tops. It looks like it’s a private branding of the Beck (or Kemco) Jeep Cabs, because the door has the split window. As far as I know, that wasn’t available on the Kelly hardtops manufactured by Kelly Manufacturing (which is the company Kemco became).Also, the Kemco had the small window on the half cab, as does the Jeepking half cab.

(09/26/2017) A factory bed conversion for a CJ-5? Anyone ever run across that? It’s listed as a 1952, but it has CJ-5 grille and body at the very least. Looks like a ventilating windshield, too (thanks Dave).
