This is an odd one.

https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/cto/d/vancouver-1952-willys-jeep/7129903964.html

“Perfect for someone wanting to restore an old classic. Obviously needs work. Very confident the engine will still run. In its non-running life it’s spent most of its life under cover.”

Year? CJ-3A Valentine APU Central Point, OR $25,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Features, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

I don’t see any of the APU equipment left, so while it’s a rare jeep, it’s also no longer an APU jeep. I don’t see anyone paying the asking price for it. That said, it’s got some interesting mods, including a custom lengthened rear cargo area, a custom spare tire well and holder, what appears to be the Hudson steering mod, and a custom modified top (shortened CJ-6 top perhaps). This also utilizes doors from a late model CJ-5 hardtop by Kelly. The rear portion may even be a modified Kelly CJ-6 top.

https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/for/d/central-point-willys-cj3a/7114827840.html

“Up for sale is a CJ3A Willys APU Jeep .
This APU Jeep was built for the military Navy and Air Force to start jets by the Valentine Welding Co. they made a total of 75, this is one of two know to still exist, and the only one with a windshield and top .

1946 CJ-2A “Nellybelle II” Cave Creek, AZ $29,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This was for sale in June of 2019 for $10k. Now it’s on sale for $29,500. This is a replica that reportedly was built for the museum. It wasn’t used on the actual show, based on the ads for this jeep that we’ve previously seen. The original Nelly Belle sold for $116,500 in 2010 and, subsequently, for $38,400 in 2018.

(02/22/2019) This was originally for sale in 2010.

https://classiccars.com/listings/view/1317090/1946-willys-cj2a-for-sale-in-north-scottsdale-arizona-85331

(from the 2019 ad) “This 1946 CJ-2A is an exact replica of the Jeep Nellybelle used in the Roy Rogers’ TV Show of the 1950’s. It was commissioned by Roy Jr., aka Dusty Rogers. It was used at the Roy Rogers Museum for the children to climb into so that the original Nellybelle would not get all that “abuse”. We have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as pictures we took with Dusty and his son, Dustin. We are also friends with the fine gentleman who built this jeep for Dusty.

It runs well, smokes a little (it’s old enough and Dusty said it always smoked).”
