1963 CJ-5 Prague, OK $4800

Nice wheels/tires. I’m pretty sure the faux battery box lid was phased out after the 1963 year, which suggest this might be a 1962 or earlier. Has a Meyer hardtop, with a handy-looking luggage rack, and a Ramsey PTO winch.

“Grampa’s JEEP just out of storage. It’s a CJ5 put together many years ago from several donors. All stock, no rust, nice full cab, free running hubs, recent paint, looks great but not show quality. Body has been weld repaired, excellent frame, brakes working well, all gears quiet, engine runs but has an ocassional skip. Nice Koenig PTO Winch as per factory specs. I just drove it around and it goes and sounds like an old Jeep should, like an old school build from the 70’s. Maybe fresh gas or some tune up will help, but you can go JEEPIN’ today. Selling for a friend, Grampa’s Grandson. Grampa lived to 100 and was a fanatic about details. Bill of Sale only. If you need title, it’s at your expense as Maine is no title needed for this vehicle. Contact me thru C.L. for phone, more pix, or discussion.”

1956-dj3a-branson-mo“956 Willys DJ3A “The Dispatcher” Slated as a light delivery vehicle this is the first year for this model of Willys. The production number stamped in the frame is 1134 I believe. I will confirm that. This was my dads first vehicle and has been in the family since 1961. As far as I know we were the second owner. I have the original title. It’s a project. I have almost all of the original parts. What is missing is the motor, radiator, and seats. I have three of the original hubcaps. I have two tires on it that do hold air. The floor pans are rusted out. Last time it was on the road was 1973. It does have a factory heater. If you know the DJ’s then you know it is factory 2wd. I also have the doors. This is very difficult to post as I have a long history with this vehicle. Circumstances in life change and sometimes you have to let go of dreams. Ask any questions you want. I have more pics somewhere I will add later.”

Floors, body, hat channels are all completely solid and rust free. Some stuff was modernized: 12v converted/solid state distributor/standard fuel pump but I have all of the original 24v waterproof distributor/plugs/wires/pump. Lots of new parts, radiator was rebuilt, new fuel tank, seats. All gauges work like they’re supposed to. The Jeep runs and drives great and I drive it regularly.

“Cool little flatty with some rust but alot of good going for it to restore or just have years of fun.
First it has all the original date plates (vin tags) including the brass one on the dash, straight Willys hood, tailgate and windshield.
The full hardtop and doors are aluminum and made by Sears this one is in really good shape considering it’s age, not perfect but all the parts for the “roll” up windows are intact and 2 of the glass pieces are perfect, the others are easy to match and source.
The mechanical winch works.

The Jeep has most of it’s original parts including 16″ matching steel wheels. The motor has been changed to a Buick “Dauntless” V6 and (ironically) it doesn’t run yet. I am soaking the pistons before I try to crank it over. It is full of oil without water and looks good under the valve covers etc. “Ran when parked” according to the 81 y/o guy that has owned it since 1979. It has a Warn OD, original T-90 / Dana Spicer 18 transfer case and 25/41 axles. The floors have rust in the front footwells and in the tool box (from sitting) but the back floor, wheels wells, fenders, hood, grill, etc are sound. There are a few more spots of rust throughout the body but it’s a CA car so nothing you can’t work out.

Come take a look I have a few Jeeps for sale as I realize I can’t keep them all. Make an offer while you are here with cash in your hand if you want me to think you are serious. Ask me if “it’s still available” and I won’t sell it to you.”
