“1949 Willys Jeepster and good drivable condition. Three (3) speed on the column with electric overdrive. Fun weekend vehicle for the whole family, including the dog. The Jeepster is an automobile originally produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1948 to 1950.[3] It was developed in hopes of filling a gap in the company’s product line, crossing over from their “utilitarian” proto SUVs and trucks to the passenger automobile market. The basic model included numerous deluxe features and interior fittings in addition to a high level of standard equipment that cost extra on other automobiles. A total of almost 20,000 were manufactured.”

1955 Wagon Corvallis, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $12,500.

The seller notes that 1955 was the first year Warn offered the five-ring warn hubs. Actually, they (both the locking and the automatic hubs) were offered as early as 1953, according to at least two different ads. One 1953 ad (note the Feb 1953 Motor Trend Magazine for example was a full blown brochure, while this 1953 ad below was included in the September 1953 Popular Science magazine:

1953-09-popular-mechanics-warn-manufacturing copy

All that said, and back to the original purpose of this post, the wagon looks nice, though it does have an updated engine.

https://corvallis.craigslist.org/bar/d/corvallis-1955-willys-wagon-4×4-pto/7114073096.html

“For sale or trade. I am gunsmith so primary interest is firearms but no harm in asking. This is a great Willys that can be driven just the way it is or you can pursue additional restoration. Everything works, 4×4, factory Warn hub locks (first year those were offered), overdrive, front and rear PTO with a winch on the front bumper. Dual fuels tanks. Older paint still looks good, just not shiny. Seats were all just rebuilt (foam and covering) in a canvas looking modern material. Less than 200 miles on a completely rebuilt and balanced Chevy L6 250 with MSD Distributor and Electronic Ignition. Starts and hums along very smoothly. Steering is vintage and next on my restore list if I keep it. Need $12500 in cash or trade value to consider parting with this fun rig.”

(04/01/2020) Mechanically, this looks like it’s been thoughtfully restored. I’m just not sure how the restorer figured out what the “correct WWII Olive Drab” would be?

Robin noticed that this doesn’t have a battery box; yet it does have all the other characteristics of an M-38A1 body (and does not have the CJ-5 body branding). Anyone have any thoughts as to why?

“Has hard top that can be removed new tired and brakes.”

This includes a working set of Thor Electronic Hubs (and the first pic I’ve seen of the switch to engage the hubs). These are the “Lectro-Matic” version of the hubs (there was also an automatic version). Dan documented a set of the “Lectro-Matric” hubs here.

“Anyone looking for the coolest 62 Jeep CJ5 on the planet. I got this handsome little guy up for sale. It’s beyond amazing! Everything works, every light, all gauges, the chrome winch ect…oh and there’s chrome all over the place. Original paint, Original interior.. both are in incredible condition. It’s a very unique Jeep and it’s running a Corvette engine that was installed by the original owner in the mid sixties.He was a aircraft mechanic so everything is perfect .It also has very rare Thor electronic locking front hub set . No rust anywhere and super straight. I have the those crazy off road wide white wall tires in the pics and the hubcaps. I just threw on a new set of Power King black walls to drive it around. The Jeep runs amazing! It’s got really good power and not geared that low. I have not taken it on the freeway but got it up to 60mph with no issues. This is a very special Jeep with history. Ca title & current registration in my name”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Bill shared this nice looking M-38A1. The jeep’s supposed to have only 4850 miles on it, but given the engine was likely pulled and painted (and rebuilt?) at some point, I find that claim hard to believe. Perhaps they are miles after engine rebuild? There are a few other clues that body parts were repainted as well at some point.

1966 CJ-6 Klamath Falls, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE **SOLD** Was $13,200

(06/21/2018) David’s selling his CJ-6. It’s a got some useful updates.

“This CJ-6 is in excellent condition, very rare and comes with the desired Dauntless V-6 and a 4 speed Manual Transmission. The Jeep has had a lot of maintenance and upgrades done to it. It comes with an ExtremeAire on board compressor and all the tools you’ll need to inflate or deflate your tires for whatever terrain you’re in. The Wild Country XTX 255/85 16s are almost brand new. Rancho RS 5000 shocks, locking glove box and rear tool box. Fully carpeted, full padded roll-cage, and the seats are in excellent condition with the exception of one small split on the driver’s seat.

This Jeep comes from Eastern Oregon in high desert country, very easy on the body of older vehicles. The paint is in good condition, but there are a few cracks and worn areas, (see photos). The vehicle has been parked for a few years, but always indoors. The top is in excellent condition and looks almost new. It probably could use a good tune-up, but it runs and drives great. You would have to look very hard to find a CJ-6 in better condition. Feel free to email or text with any questions.”
