1967 Jeepster Commando Round Lake, IL eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

Glenn shared this rare half-cabbed Jeepster Commando.

“This Willys Jeepster is the 4X4 short bed clad in red and white. It has a Meyers 6′ plow – we bought it for plowing smaller areas. Seats presentable with brown leatherette. Body has some rust out – front and rear quarters and other areas. Previous owner was a mechanic who replaced original engine with a GM V6 and claimed engine was rebuilt. Jeep runs and drives. Auto transmission works and Meyers plow works good. A desirable little truck that would need panel repairs or drive as is.”

1961 CJ-5 Shipshewana, IN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

Has PTO and rear gearbox in back and a plow up front.

“For sale is a fully operational early CJ5. It runs, drives, and stops well. You can drive this right down the road, even at night as the lights also work. This vehicle was used for plowing churches, and was last registered on the road last fall.

Jeep has a nice, modern title.

Tub is rough – but the front half of the body, and the half top seem to be in good shape. The dash gauge is in great condition. There’s a heater near the passenger side.

Plow goes up/down and tilts. Rear PTO unit spins. You may power agricultural attachments with this system. Plow quick disconnects, and you’re off bashing the trails.”

1948 CJ-2A Dually Springfield, SD **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

It’s probably had some side panel work done.

“Fun Jeep to drive, clear title, 4 wheel drive with high and low range transmission. Drive on or off road. Duallys look like is a factory option. They add roll over stability on slopes and hills, and less rutting in mud. Have owned for 25 years, I do think the miles listed is likely correct as I bought it from a golf course. Vehicle does wander some at higher speeds on road, and wipers don’t work. May have minor amount of additional miles (less than 100) when sold. NO RESERVE”

1966 CJ-5 USDA AG Albany, GA $1250

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

Gayland spotted this former government vehicle. It could use some loving. It has several neat data plates.

“1966 JEEP CJ-5 For Sale. For $1500.00. Engine is unassembled and in rear of JEEP. JEEP was built for the Government. Has a warranty sticker on dash from Kaiser Jeep to the Government. Has a Government Data Plate on the dash. It is equipped with a 540 PTO on rear. The previous owner said that the person that he bought it from said it was used to mow grass at a park. The paint has a nice even patina and would look good preserved as is. More pictures added. The rust near the Department of Agriculture decal is the worse spot on the out side of the body. If you were going to restore a 1960s Jeep this would be a rare and interesting one to restore. I have added a picture of the Kaiser JEEP Corporation’s Special Sales Order Plate.

Price reduce to $1250.00 before it goes into the woods for another 10 years.”

1946 CJ-2A Buffalo, NY $1000


UPDATE: Still Available?

Craig shared this one. Between the plow and the half cab alone there is value. It has an f-head swap. It runs, too.

“Up for sale, a friend has a 50’s something Willys Jeep. Either one of us know what year it is exactly. He last used it 2 years ago, to plow his driveway and it has sat since as it needs brake work so it can stop, he never got to it. He wanted me to try and unload it for him. Easier for him to just have me do his snow removal. Anyway, it runs and drives, just doesn’t stop, plow works, tires hold air, 4-wheel drive works, I think the cab heater works, and maybe the wipers too. He ended up with this Jeep when he bought his house and it was the sole vehicle for snow removal at his place, but it needs some work that he’ll never get a chance to do and it needs a new home now.

I’m pretty sure he has no paper work at all for it and neither did the last owner he got it from. Have no idea if it was ever registered and on the road in its lifetime, but my guess would be no. Floors are decent in it, and from what I can tell it’s still got plenty of life left after some TLC it would be a great little work horse around cabin, farm, or house and snow removal. I think it’s been patched up here and there and some obvious stuff not original to it by the pictures and would have to be picked up by rollback or car hauler to move from location, with it not being able to stop. Thanks for looking, any interest, text or call me.”
