1948 CJ-2A Dually Springfield, SD **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

It’s probably had some side panel work done.

“Fun Jeep to drive, clear title, 4 wheel drive with high and low range transmission. Drive on or off road. Duallys look like is a factory option. They add roll over stability on slopes and hills, and less rutting in mud. Have owned for 25 years, I do think the miles listed is likely correct as I bought it from a golf course. Vehicle does wander some at higher speeds on road, and wipers don’t work. May have minor amount of additional miles (less than 100) when sold. NO RESERVE”

Craig spotted this one. There’s some jeep underneath. If it is really a ’53, it must be a CJ-3A or 3B. An M-38A1 would have the front springs reversed.

1969 CJ-5 Concord, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is an unusual build.



“Usually when we tell you about a mean Jeep it’s because someone has transformed it into the ultimate off-roader, but this complete custom built 1969 Jeep CJ5 is about teaching others a lesson on the streets. Beneath the wild green paint and lowered suspension lies some of the best Ford performance components you know. And once you look at the price, it’s not just a great Jeep or a great Cobra; it’s one amazing overall deal.

There is no pretending this is an off-road Jeep. The metallic green paint is out to intimidate the streets, not the trail. At has the kind of luster from the modern clearcoat that will act like a beacon attracting people from across the show field during the day, and at night, it catches the light and almost glows better than a neon sign. That’s why it has been applied over every inch of the exterior, including the bumpers, grille, and hood pins. The only thing to grab more attention than the green are those custom applies sliver ghost flames. But more than just paint, this one has some great custom street rod details, like the chopped windshield, lowered suspension, crystal clear headlights, and the Weld-style 15-inch alloys.

Year? DJ-3A Albuquerque, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

Colin did some due diligence and determined that this is likely a former airport baggage conveyor DJ. Here’s a very similar conveyor DJ from the 3B page.

Here’s what Colin deduced: The mounts on the front frame rails are in a position where the front conveyor supports can be mounted.

The rear platform for the conveyor is attached to the rear corner of the tub on those DJ3As and on the sides of the CJ3B as well (see the CJ-3B page).  It would preclude the rear taillights, and  rear fuel filler that is standard on the DJ3A, but one photo of the DJ3A with the North Central Convair 500 shows the fuel fill tube low on the right rear corner, and the rear wheel opening is modified just like the one on 20796 (See the CJ-3B page for pics side and rearish

Also, the right rear corner of the tub is modified to clear the conveyor.I suspect the large holes in the rear panels helped support the bracing for the rear platform and also carried the hydraulic lines and controls for on the ground operation.  The Line lock was for the brakes and the chrome handle on the left side of the dash were no doubt for the governor.  The emergency brake T- handle was moved to a location where the driver could set it, otherwise it would have been under the conveyor apparatus.

“1950’s model DJ3A Military Willys Jeep DJ3A. Body in great shape, nearly rust free, have engine and transmission, 2 windshields, most of the major parts are there. Needs restoration or used for parts. Too many projects already so decided to move on.”

Hunting Jeep Houston, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, M-38A1, Unusual, Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

I love this funky jeep. Looks to have started life as a CJ-5 or M-38A1. Then, someone with a welder and torch got a hold of it. Just bring it back to life and keep as is. It’s a great conversation piece of nothing else.

“I have for sale a jeep that I have used at my hunting lease. It is a tough vehicle that is entirely metal. It has both high and low 4 wheel drive and a hoist on the back. It has some slop in the transmission that can be fixed with adjustment of the yoke in the three speed on the floor. It has a Ford Falcon engine. It has been sitting in my barn but it was running when I drove there. Tires are good and the fuel tank is a new tank that I have in the rear cargo area. I replaced the carburetor a few years back and runs fine. Will make a great jeep for a hunting lease or just to drive around a ranch. There is no title and I don’t know what year model or make it is! I am told that this is a form military jeep but I don’t know what era it is from.”
