1942 GPW Bellevue, WA $22,000


Mark posted this at

“For the past 50+ years it has been driven roughly 30-50 miles per year. It was owned by a former board member of the Reno Air Show and was trailered from Reno to the event and only used to drive around the grounds of the show. Still has the original stickers from the air shows on the front wind shield. Recently had service done on the brakes, oil, etc.

Most likely one of the cleanest non-show car 75 year old vehicles you will see. Recently we did $1400.00 worth of maintenance. Runs great. Would like to find it a nice home.”

1946 CJ-2A Frazeysburg, OH $12,950


Craig shared this rebuilt CJ-2A. One pic shows the rear seat in backwards, but maybe it’s just sitting in it and not installed? The top setup is unusual.

1979 CJ-5 Silver Anniversary Athena, AL eBay


Maury spotted this silver anniversary CJ-5.

“1979 Jeep CJ-5 SA: This extremely rare Jeep is an incredible investment opportunity. In the second half of 1979 Jeep built less than 1000 of the CJ 5 Silver Anniversary editions. There are an estimated 40 still in existence today with any chance of being restored. Less than 10 with the original motor and transmission and no rust! That makes this one of only 10 left in the world. I encourage you to do some research yourself into the collectibility of this rare vehicle. They will only go up in value!

It is “Car Show Clean” and ready to drive across country. Just add gas and enjoy. With 54,000 original miles this Jeep does well on the road, never sees mud and drives like a dream. It was garage kept for most of its life and only driven around town. The original front seats were replaced with aftermarket along with the steering wheel and shift knob. The original Silver Anniversary emblem is still on the glove compartment door and the VIN can be verified.”

1963 FJ-3A Phoenix, AZ $36,000


UPDATE II: Still Available.


Jesse noted that, “It was originally built in the 70s by my friend Gary Jack. He worked for the US Postal Service his whole career. When he retired, the tired FJ3 was also retired, so it went to scrap. At the time the FJ3 Postal FleetVans did not have the approval of the federal DOT and especially they did not have the approval of California DMV, because of the right hand drive and the seated / standing up driver operation. He was able to sneak out the scrapped pieces of the FJ3 that he had driven during his career, and a few others, enough to recreate and build a dream that he had during his career, to build a chopped top race truck. He did that. Gary and the FJ were a regulars at Riverside Raceway for a lot of years. In the 80s to the 90s this same FJ3 became a top NSRA street rod.”


“This 1963 Jeep FJ-6A custom mail truck is “Delivering Hope” for charity. No expense was spared to take this iconic US Postal Office Fleet van and give it the modern upgrades and conveniences. Featuring a 350 Chevy engine. Cox Charities is committed to building, strengthening and investing in metropolitan and rural Arizona communities by raising and granting funds and mobilizing employee giving and selfless service since its inception, Cox Charities has awarded $5 million in grants to non-profit organizations that impact our community primarily through youth education programs, thus solidifying the Cox Communication – Arizona commitment to the communities it serves. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT COX CHARITIES** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 6:00PM ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 2014**”

1953 M-38 Clinton, IL $7900

UPDATE: This has a CJ chassis and has a few other non-M-38 elements.





“This thing rolled of the line in 1952. Built for greatness? Absolutely. It runs like a complete champ. This 3-speed manual shifts incredibly. You’re probably thinking “Oh no it’s a stick, but I don’t know how to drive a stick…” If that’s the case, it’s time for you to sack the heck up… Put on your learning pants and let me teach you one of the most essential life lessons you can have as an American citizen.

Don’t worry the tricky stuff has already been done on this bad to the bone 1952 Willy’s M38 Military Jeep. The tranny has been rebuilt with all new gears. As usual, I’m writing slowly because I know you can’t read fast… Motor was completed prior to me purchasing. While, I’m unsure of how many miles are this thing, I’m sure it’s got some memories. Some of the gauges are working, some are not. Which is pretty common for an almost 70 year old vehicle! I have installed a new alternator, 12 volt battery, and have changed all the bulbs. I do have the old 6 volt generator which will go with it.

(02/01/2017) Lots of updates.

“1947 CJ2A body on a 1974 CJ5 frame. 327 cubic inch Chevy engine, 3 speed manual, four wheel drive, rear lockers. This was basically a frame off restoration. The engine was rebuilt and everything is either new or refurbished. Front disk brakes, new gauges. The odometer was set to zero when the engine was finished. The frame and body were sand blasted and painted. No rust or body damage. Custom seats, power steering, new Bestop soft top. Windshield wipers and a heater have been added for Colorado weather. Reverse shackle leaf springs for improved handling, tilt steering. It runs and drives great. Good Offroad setup. I inherited this jeep so I don’t have some of the specifics on certain parts. The price is fair and firm. It needs to be seen to be appreciated.”

1960 CJ-3B Richmond City, VA $9950


Looks nice.

“1960 CJ3B. Red, originally white. Very good shape, runs very well. Needs nothing. ZERO RUST. Soft Top Bikini Top, Jeepster wheels, carpet, optional heat, over drive. Brand new brake shoes, cylinders. 12 volt conversion, generator rebuilt in 2013. Fresh oil change. Original hard top with doors comes in sale. Original hurricane 4-cylinder motor. 66,xxx actual miles. My father bought this brand new in Austin Texas and he owned it until 2009, at which point I obtained it when he was no longer able to drive. So this is a one family jeep for 57 years. It has been a driver, not a show car so it has the occasional scuff and the old radio no longer works.
Always stored indoors and presently in my garage where it has been parked every night. Clear and clean VA title in my name. Open to offers, cash speaks loudly. I am not forced to sell this Jeep so I won’t entertain any low ball offers. NADA has an average retail value of $14000 which I think is off (too high). This is very much an above average Jeep for a below average price. The final two pictures are one of me in the Jeep circa 1977 and one of my sons circa 2013. All of the other pictures were taken 6/3/17 with more to come. I can get pictures of whatever is requested.”

1954 CJ-3B Redmond, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **Sold** Was $7500.



“The jeep was purchased from a Willys collector (second owner) in 2012 for $10,000 plus a jeep for which I paid $2,000, with $7,000 added since.

The original owner was in Western Oregon.

I wanted an original, green,Willys, with original paint, but not with the rust like most on the market. More than 50 jeeps in different States were considered before finding this one. The engine, transmission and Warn overdrive had been rebuilt when I purchased it with a roll bar. There are 25,153 miles on the jeep now.

The license plate designates the vehicle as a collectible, so you don’t need to pay for yearly tabs.

These are the additions since 2012; they were professionally done. Most receipts were kept:

Brakes, master cylinder, hoses, and wheel cylinders $1,114
Wheel bearings packed, replaced hub seals and tie rod $550
Rebuilt distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs $450
New muffler and tail pipe $286
Rebuilt carburetor, points, condenser $443

Looks in great shape. The engine uses a modern filter.

“Nicely restored 1950 Willys Jeepster. 6 cxl. engine. Recently gone over by local mechanic and given a clean bill of health.

This car was restored in 1998. I have many picture of the restoration, Engine removed and rebuilt. Body professionally repainted. 12v. system. New carburetor. The restoration even included a CD player an AC. (The AC is under dash, did not mess up the dash, and can be easily removed)

This car sold a few years ago for $20K. (I have documentation). I purchased it for less last year. I have had fun with the car, but some priorities have changed, so now want to find it a new home.

This Jeepster runs very well and feels good at higher speed . Tires are in good shape Paint in excellent shape. Color is a deep gray and appears to have been done quite professionally. Body is in excellent condition. Top and side curtains just OK. ”
