“1953 Willys CJ3B for sale. Completely rebuilt with new steel body. Rebuilt 225 V6 with new Comp cam. Heads have hardened seats and Chevy dual valve springs. It has all new valves, lifters, and adjustable pushrods. New aluminum radiator and HEI distributor. Rebuilt 3-speed auto with rebuilt Dana 18 transfer case. New brakes and wheel cylinders on 11″ brakes. Homebuilt emergency brakes to keep it road legal. 5.38 gear ratio with Warn hubs front and rear. Top speed is 60 mph and anything over I would consider dangerous. I built it to go play in the sand but never made it. Not safe on the freeway but should be fine just wheeling in town. It has new full set of gauges and a full roll cage. New spare tire mounted in the back so no room for back seat. Genuine German Jerry can. Home made aluminum tool box also in the back. The Willys is painted CAMO with good urethane paint; not rattle can. I fabricated lot of stuff on here so it’s a little different. PS, PB, and bikini top. Have tow bar but not mounted. It has small oil leaks here and there so don’t park on a clean driveway.”

“This is a fully restored 1947 Jeep Willy’s the previous owner inherited it from his father, and let the vehicle sit for 6 years. He traded it in at our dealership but did not have the key. A locksmith is making a new key for the ignition now. He had the Jeep started last 2 years ago. Have not had a mechanic go through the Jeep yet but intend to do very minor restorations to the Jeep to get it back to excellent condition. However am willing to sell AS-IS at this moment but once restorations are complete I will be asking for more on the Jeep. Very clean Jeep no rust and well restored just needs minor touch ups to make show ready. Has won car shows in the past before sitting for the past 6 years. Please call or stop by for any questions.”

“Very small very unique 1965 willys fj6 ice cream truck conversion. Truck was taken down to bare metal, roof raised 12 in, professionally primered and then wrapped. It has a Chevy 250 inline 6 with a 2-speed powerglide transmission. Although it is good for maneuvering and is street legal it is not comfortable to drive. It has a class 3 kitchen in it which includes a single basin and hand washing with hot and cold pressurized water. A 3500 watt inverter with 4 deep cell batteries so it can run off the grid. It has Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth receiver. With a slide top freezer and a mini deep freeze. It is currently registered and licensed in Marion county as a class 3 truck. Business is not for sale just the truck. Name and logo must be removed. Would work perfectly for a shave ice vehicle, tap truck, cupcake, ice cream, hot dogs, concessions. I’m reducing my fleet to one truck, and a second brick and mortar”

“This is a 1960 CJ five with 35,000 original miles. The jeep is from Hawaii. Henry J Kaiser gave this jeep to the Boy Scouts in Hawaii. The Boy Scouts sold raffle tickets as a fundraiser. When the jeep was about a year old. It wound up in Paso Robles. The man owned it past away. I Purchased a jeep 15 years ago. The stoop is always been under cover in store and in storage. It is in great condition. The color of the jeep, is the same colors as the Royal Hawaiian hotel in Hawaii. Which was also owned by Henry J Kaiser. The main body of the jeep which is painted a darker pink is the same as the hotel The light pink that is used on the grill. He’s also the same color as the trim color on the hotel. The color of the seats are the color of the tile roof that is on the hotel. This is also the same colors of used on Kaiser s Sand and gravel trucks. This jeep has an absolutely fabulous history. and I believe that it is the only CJ five. In these colors as it was a special order by Henry J Kaiser and sell.”
