1943 GPW Ogden, UT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is a nice looking build.

“This Jeep is a piece of World War II History. It was produced in 1943 by Ford for the war and is technically a Ford GPW. It has all original metal and was a frame off restoration. It has a spring over lift by advanced adaptors with a Chey Saginaw 3 link steering conversion also from advanced adaptors. It has a Chevy 4 bolt 350 motor with a comp cam and Turbo 350 automatic transmission with a T18 Transfer Case. Custom aluminum radiator from Ron Davis with dual electric fans. It has fender well headers and new brake lines. It needs some final touches like a speedometer and gas gauge.”

1952 M-38 Charleston, SC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This former movie jeep looks like a good restoration candidate.

“1952 Willys M38 Jeep used as team vehicle in Major League 3 “Back to the Minors”

The movie production company rented this Jeep from me and painted the black “bumblebee stripes” on it in 1998 for the movie.

Click on the link below, to the movie and at 12 minutes into the movie, you will see the Jeep drive into view during the airport scene………………..

The Jeep is rust free and has been stored inside my warehouse for the past 30 years, except for the week it was used to film the movie.

This M38 is in extremely good condition and rust free. I bought thisM38 Jeep from the South Carolina Highway Department on Shop Road, in Columbia, SC. The SCHD shop used it as a “pusher” on their yard since the mid 1950’s, hence the extremely low miles under 5000. Please view posted photos!”

1961 Truck Fort Worth, TX **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay

I’m pretty sure the truck bed has been recently painted from black to green, which helps this look better.  It’s too bad the color doesn’t match the rest exactly (given the price).

“Jeep is the original American 4×4, and even decades ago, you can see that Willys was serious about going off-road. This ultra-nice 1961 Willys Jeep pickup an awesome do-anything machine, the Swiss Army knife of off-roaders, and a darned good-looking truck to boot!

Go ahead and try to find another one of these, let alone one this nice. Wait, let me make it easy for you—you won’t. Someone spent the long dollar to bring this one up to show standards, then filled it with comfort and convenience items to create a kind of resto-mod Jeep pickup. The angular sheetmetal, complete with that instantly-recognizable Jeep front end, is completely stock. Whatever this truck’s previous life might have been, it’s now in near show condition with panels that fit together better than new, paint that sparkles like the stuff you find on a new Lexus, and still carrying a big dose of practicality. The medium green paint works especially well with the reproduction Sinclair Gasoline decals on the doors (go ask your grandfather about it), and adds a sense of functionality. The surprisingly big bed has been covered in color-matched bedliner material, so it’s still up for the rough stuff, there are tubular bumpers fore and aft, and just enough chrome to remind you that this truck was built for civilians.

Originally, the interior in a Jeep like this was little more than a lightly upholstered bench and some basic controls, but during the restoration it got a full makeover. Today it offers a trick pleated look that’s totally custom but still looks right in the upright cab. Matching door panels were added to soften the interior a bit, and there are now carpets on the floor, not rubber mats. The original dash is painted to match the body, and the factory-issue gauges are still in the center, but they’re now flanked by a set of Auto Meter Phantom gauges, including a clock, and surprisingly, they look exactly right. There’s also an AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glove box with speakers neatly hidden, so you won’t even know it’s there until you hear it.

The engine is still a correct 226 inline-six, the powerplant of choice when reliability matters. Rebuilt and neatly detailed in original olive green, it starts quickly with a pleasant grumble, and idles smoother than you’d expect from a workhorse. Underneath, the chassis was completely restored and with only 98 miles on the restoration, it’s as clean as it’ll ever be. The transmission, transfer case, and both axles have been freshened, and all the lines and hoses are new, so you won’t have to worry about heading off the pavement. And simply nothing looks better on one of these old rigs than the original steel wheels with skinny 7.00-16 off-road tires.”

(09/09/2012) Except the strange contraption on the front bumper this looks pretty stock.  Of course, the paint scheme is odd.

“Old Willys Jeep. “L” head, 4-134 “Go Devil” engine rebuilt in the 1960s. Carter WO carb rebuilt last year. Frame is good, drive train is good. Body is solid but rough. New tires.

1951 Truck Independence, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(12/05/2012) Randy forwarded this eBay listing.  This sure has rusted beautifully!

“1951 Willys Jeep 4X4 Pickup Truck. This is a project that is currently not running and has been setting for the last 30 years. This is a very restorable truck that is a rock crawler waiting to happen. The drive train is complete from engine to rear end. The engine appears not to be original because it is an over head valve, and the engine is locked up and will not turn over, the remainder of the drive train was in working condition when the truck was parked. Although the body is 99% surface rust it is actually very solid and straight. The cab is very nice as is the roof, hood, cowl, grill, rock guard, and doors and these pieces should clean up for paint with very little effort. The fenders are all on the rough side but are repairable. The bed is also very straight but does have through rust in the bed sides and in the floor. The tailgate has minimal rust and will need some work. The glass is all in place except the driver door wing window, the rest of the glass is either frosted or has bubbles from old age and will need to be replaced, but it is all flat glass and should be very economical to replace. The interior is rough, the seat frame and springs are in place but will need to be recovered. All of the guages are in place and the dash appears to be complete. The wheels all turn freely and the tires all hold air, but are 30 years old and dry rotted. All 5 wheels are original to the truck with the factory pin stripe barley still showing. I have tried to decribe this old Jeep the best of my ability, but have probably missed something that you need to know, if so just ask. If you would like to inspect it in person prior to the end of the auction again just ask and arrangements will be made. This Jeep comes with a good Missouri title. The buyer will be responsible for all transpotation costs if required, but I will be willing to assist in loading or pickup on this end if needed. If you are looking for a project or just some good parts you should give this one some serious consideration.”

1946 CJ-2A San Gabriel, Ca $6300


UPDATE:  Still Available

(03/24/2010) This Jeep has an interesting history.  It sounds little used.

“1946 Willys CJ2A. California jeep. Second owner. Originally sold to a Los Angeles family for use on their weekend getaway ranch in Agoura, CA. For twenty years, this jeep ran from their house up the hill to their water well. It was last used in 1963. Sometime thereafter, the transmission and transfer case were stolen, and it sat until I purchased it in 1983. At that time, it had a little over 500 original miles. Stored outside, but thanks to the dry California climate, at the time I bought it, there was no body rot. Since then, the frame-up restoration has included: Sand blast frame and body parts, engine professionally rebuilt by Preco, Inc. through Harvey’s Complete Jeep Shop in Paramount. Radiator dipped and rodded out. Clutch re-lined by Friction Materials Company. Installed NEW transmission and transfer case, added a Warn All-Range Overdrive. New u-joints, AVM hubs, new seals in differential and axles. New master cylinder, new brake lines, brake shoes re-lined by Friction Materials. Original seats recovered by Elmer’s Truck Seats of Los Angeles, new steering wheel, new instrumentation, and new wiring throughout. Fuel tank cleaned and lined. New 24V alternator. New tires, rims, and front bumper tow bar. New windshield glass. Bikini top, and CJ-5 roll bar. Over 10K invested. I have all receipts. The jeep has not been run in the last 8 years, and needs some TLC, namely a new battery and a clutch return spring. Minor rust is starting to form in the lower corners of the windshield, and the “steps” behind the front fenders. I also have three of the original rims fitted with tractor tires, and the original side spare tire mount. Please contact me via email to arrange an inspection. $7300.00. I will consider any reasonable offer.”

1974 CJ-5 Avondale, AZ eBay


This is not a Super Jeep, but does have the graphics package.

“Up for auction is a 1974 Jeep CJ5. It is powered by an AMC 304 V8 which we believe is the original engine which may make this Jeep a factory Renegade package. It is a three speed manual transmission we believe the axels to be Dana 44’s front and rear. According to our calculations the axle gearing is 4.27:1,

The Jeep runs and drives well and the 4×4 works well. It has manual lock out hubs, and has a manual choke so it starts and runs well when cold. The engine has been upgraded with an Edelbrock aluminum intake, fendewell exit headers than go to medium loudness mufflers, the Jeep sounds throaty but is not overly loud. The Jeep has been in Arizona its entire life, but does have dents and dings all over the body.

There is no rust but there are dents etc. I would call the Jeep a “five to ten footer” meaning that if you are 5 or 10 feet away it looks like a new Jeep, when you get up to it you notice the dents and dings but hey its almost 40 years old and these werent built to be show cars, but it is rust free. It has been repainted an industrial gloss white and has custom Super Jeep package graphics on the body tub.

The body tub is 1976 and was swapped on many years ago. The Jeep has brand new black low back vinyl bucket seats, new seat frames, and a new factory rear seat from Rugged Ridge. The Jeep has 4″ of total lift comprising of 2″ lift Rancho springs front and rear and 2″ lift Performance Accessories shackles. The tires are new 33×10.50×15 BFG KM2s and the wheels are vintage restored American Racing turbines that have been restored to brand new condition. The wheels and tires were installed in the spring of 2011 and have less than 200 miles on them.

The Jeep belonged to my brother in law who was killed in an accident at work, and he performed all of the work and restoration from approx 2009 to 2011, we got it in the spring of 2011. We have kept it in storage and drive it occaisionally when the weather is nice, but honestly have only put maybe 100 to 150 miles on it over the last year and half, mainly a Sunday cruise when the weather is nice etc. We have decided that it might be time to pass it on to someone else to enjoy, this Jeep turns every head that passes by, and it just needs a few minor details to be perfect in our opinion, but it is ready to enjoy as it is now. Clear Arizona title in hand, the Jeep is located in Avondale, AZ. ”

“a friend that started Fujimo in the mid 80’s passed away and i purchased it and finished it. it has had 4 engines a 283,350 ,400 and now a 383 stroker. it has a rack and pinion mustang 2 with disc brakes for a front end. 383 stroker motor connected to a 350 turbo with a 3200 stall converter. top has been chopped approx 4 inches and top of roof stands at apptox 67 inches. car was shown with great sucess in the early 90’s. fujimo was driven and not a trailer queen. he was retired in 1996 and placed in air conditioned storage.. he was taken out approx 5 months ago and sent to an old nascar mechanic in georgia. valves that had become noisy in storage were adjusted, transmission whose seals had dried out was completele rebuilt and cooling system was redoone including new larger radiator, new waterpump and electric cooling fan and larger fan blade was installed. clear coat had a couple of bubbles in it so fujimo was taken down to bear metal and new graphics and coat of yellow paint was applied, new carpet was also installed . old diamond pattern upholstory has a few minor stains but it was decided to leave it alone. considered installing an aftermarket SUV rack for the surfboard but decided against it. It would probably cost over one hundred thou to reproduce this vehicle. have invested over 15,000 since coming out of storage. I am 78 years old so it’s time for my old friend to go to a new home.”
