1958 CJ-5 Trencher Barnhart, MO $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

This runs and drives with an operating trencher and sports duallies.

“1958 CJ 5 Willys Jeep with a trencher attachment that was factory made for jeeps back before the industry started making trenchers for smaller jobs.

Back then it was either a shovel and pick or large diggers. This trencher fit the bill for the smaller jobs.

This unit is in complete working order and runs great. The odometer reads 4400 miles and I believe it.

The Huricane-4 motor runs smooth and does not smoke.

Also has duals on the back that are made for jeep and never seen one of these with a cab.

Price is OBO at $6500.00 Please only serouis inquirers. 314-952-two nine 61”

(07/15/2012) I believe this runs?  It also has a bed extender.  While it looks like it is missing the tailgate, Leo noted that tailgate is still there, just under the extender.

1949 CJ-3A Cherry Valley, Illinois **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1300.

The seller lists this as a 2A, but looks to me to be a 3A.  This looks like an excellent project for the price.

“I have a 1949 Willys Jeep available for sale. It runs, but the fuel pump needs to be rebuilt (we were able to confirm that the engine is good by delivering gas straight into the carburetor). It also currently does not have brakes, although I have a brand new master cylinder and brand new wheel cylinders to go with it–these parts just need to be installed. It comes with a snowplow, but the hydraulic system for it needs to be overhauled. My grandfather found the Jeep in a salvage yard a number of years back and brought it back to life so that he could use it to haul wood around on our family farm. However, he passed away several years ago and the Jeep hasn’t been used much since then. This is a good project Jeep–everything is there; it just needs some work to get it back into good condition, and we don’t have the time to put into it. We will be demolishing the farmhouse and garage where it is currently being stored, so we’re forced to get rid of it. Other issues I can see with the vehicle: the windshield is cracked, the cooling system probably needs to be flushed, and the interior needs reupholstering.”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Sheridan, WY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay

Steve notes that this still has the column shift mechanics, though it also has a floor shift.

“This is a 1946 Willys CJ2A that I bought from a customer of mine.  Her husband bought it brand new and I have only driven it to town a few times.  The gears are good and tight. It starts just fine on the 6 volt system.  The Heater still works and I think they are kind of rare.  When I bought the jeep She said that it had not been started for over ten years.  After inspection I found thick oil in the oil pan so I removed the pan and cleaned out the old oil before trying to start the engine.  At this time I took pictures of the cylinders for inspection.  Two of the cylinders have marks where the rings sat over the years.  The cylinders will at sometime need to be honed out to remove the small ridges which you can see in the pictures.  After I had the carburator cleaned and we were able to start the engine the water pump had to be replaced with a new one and I put a new belt on at that time.

I have driven the jeep around while hunting and totally had a great time.  It is like going back in time and looking at the scenery a little longer because you are traveling a little slower.”

1951 CJ-3A Fond du Lac, Wi eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

The flames really make it go fast.  This runs.

“This jeep has been stored indoors since the 70’s until just this April when I purchased. I have a free and clear title that will go with upon payment. Mechanically this jeep works and runs great. It has a PTO and was set up as a plow truck for a small business. The jeep runs great, shifts, stops, plow setup works as it should and plow goes up and down as well as side to side. I do have the plow blade but it is not pictured. The frame and chassis seems solid and complete but the body has fallen apart and has been patched up to be functional over the years. The origiginal gas tank no longer is hooked up and gas is gotten from an outboard motor tank sitting in the back of jeep. If you need a good complete chassis or parts this is your chance here. Will need to be trailed for safety reasons as it has not run on the road for many many years. The plow blade is comletely good and functional, but was not handy to photo.

Like I said earlier this engine runs great and everyhting seems complete and working chassis wise including the transfer case, etc. Mileage is unknown.  Please do not bid if you can not pickup by Sunday Oct 23rd unless making arrangements first.”  You can view more pics here.
