Custom Jeep Brooksville, FL $1000


Here’s an odd one.


“So, this has been in my family for quite a while. Believe my great grandpa ‘created’ this back in the 80’s and would mainly use it as a hunting vehicle. To my understanding mostly all the exterior is fiberglass, cab space is mainly sheet metal, engine and chassis are from an old jeep (willys jeep or jeep CJ) sometime in the 1940’s-60’s. Price is OBO, if you think you have any info on the chassis and engine based on the pictures let me know, I would like to learn more about it myself. Have the cylinder head and other parts but are in kind of rough shape as you could assume”

1978 CJ-5 Spokane, WA $5900


This CJ-5 was modified to dig post holes.


“This is a highly modified Jeep designed to dig post holes. It’s a 78 CJ5, in running order and comes with a 6″, 9″, and 12″ auger. I think it can dig as deep as 6′. The best part about this design for digging holes, is the passenger seat faces backwards and has all the controls for driving.”

1950? CJ-3A Rathdrum, ID $2800

1946 CJ-2A Nashville, TN $4000

• CATEGORIES: Sedan-jeep • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $4000.

(08/19/2023) Tom shared this CJ-2A with some type of sedan or truck top. If the grille is original, this is likely a 1947 or later model.


“Willys Jeep. New brakes, master cylinder and entire brakes. Wheels blasted and painted and new tires and tubes. New seats with original frames. This Jeep has a PTO but needs the shaft. Runs and drives good but motor could use a rebuild. New gas tank and lines the body is rough but could be used depending on what you plan to do with the Jeep. Battery does NOT come wit it. Great to restore or just continue to use as is. The cab was added from an old truck many years ago and it works pretty good. This is your chance to own a classic Willys.”

1951 3-Door Wagon Little Rock, AR $7500

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.

(07/01/2023) While it has three doors, according to the seller it does not appear to be a hyrail or Fairmont build. So, the history of it isn’t clear.


“Very rare 1951 Willys wagon with the third door passenger side. It’s not a railroad. Or Fairmont built There are no holes in the floor for the towers.  so if you know anybody or any company who needs a Sema build that was my plans”

1954? Truck and Camper Durango, CO $5000

• CATEGORIES: Camping, Features, Unusual, Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

Mike shared this unusual camper. The shape of it reminds me of the late 1940s Book mobiles (or see below post). The box on this truck appears a little taller than the book mobile boxes, so this truck and the book mobiles may be unrelated.

The truck is listed as a 1954, but the grille suggests it is earlier. It’s unclear whether the camper on back is original to the truck (special order for example) or whether someone added the camper later. That said, the interior faux wood and carpet screams 60s or 70s to me. The “Jeep” radio would have also been added at a later date. Note the Warn hubs are IH branded hubs.

The jeep sports a “Rednor & Raine” Jeep sticker from Trenton, NJ, which as of 1965, was a jeep only dealer.  This also has a Princeton Theological Seminary parking permit, which is still an active institution.

Year? MB Berlin, WI $5000


This one looks like a beloved jeep. This is listed as a 1946, but it’s a modified MB with a custom top and suicide doors.


“Anyone have some land and trails to run on and hunt. 1946 Willy’s Jeep. Runs good. It needs some brake work. The wheel/ brake cylinders are sticky. It does have rust and some holes in places but the vehicle is 77 years old. lol, It’s dependable. It is what you will make of it. We love this old Jeep and had a lot of fun in it but just don’t have the storage anymore. The transmission is a three-speed with twin sticks for four-wheel drive, two-wheel drive, high and low range.. We have a separate engine block and parts on a crate for another motor that was given to us by a friend years ago but we never used it or had a need for it. Make an offer. 5000 obo. Will sell the Jeep and engine together or separately.”

“All Clemson fans take notice!!! This is a custom built truck. This truck was used years ago with the football team as well as others. This truck has been in many parades and tailgate events. I discovered this truck a couple years ago and had to have it. This truck is built from 5 different vehicles. The list is as follows: Titled as 1981 Jeep J-10 truck 4×4 chassis, 1946 Ford car front, 1970’s Mail Jeep cab, 1955 International bed that has hydraulic lift, 1951 Ford truck grill. She has an in-line 4.0 Jeep 6 cylinder engine. Power brakes and steering. Runs quit like a Singer sewing machine. Travels straight as an arrow at 70 mph. One of a kind and wins shows everywhere she’s entered. Be prepared for many questions if you’re the lucky person to be the next owner. Build cost was estimated at over $20k and I believe it. Great fab work done! Message me only if interested in buying please! Title in hand”

1960 FC-150 Brush Truck Farmington Hills, MI $19,500

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

Thus is an unusual FC.


“1960 Jeep FC-150 Brush Fire Truck was created by the Noble Township Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio in the late 70s. We bought the Jeep not running. We had a local shop (Wrenchers) clean the fuel system, install a gas tank, and service the brakes (6 years ago). The engine and drivetrain is overall stock/original and does leak a little bit of oil. The Jeep was lifted, with blocks, to deal with the larger tires and the off-road terrain it was modified to run on. We adapted an additional electronic fan to help with cooling during slow parade routes. All head/turn/running lights work, and the emergency lights and siren also work. Each of the 3 benches in the back has 3 seat belts, or two booster seats. This is the Only FC-150 I have ever seen with this type of cab/bed modification, and it is a blast to drive in parades and around town. Top speed is around 44 mph. Large dent on front driver corner shown in the last photo. No body/frame rot. Normal surface rust underneath”
