1957 CJ-5 Hesperia, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(08/15/2012) Here’s an unusual CJ-5.  It appears to have been modified by the same people/person who created these other modified jeeps, an observation I’m basing on the top.  Given the jeep is from Hesperia, there’s a very good change it is the same group.  Note that the jeep was stored for more than three decades.

“Here’s my 1957 jeep, it was stored from around the late 70’s till 2010, still has the original california black plate, runs and drives great!!

1953 CJ-3A Gales Ferry, CT $3800


I’m guessing it has been a while since this won trophies.  Looks like it might have been nice at one time though.

“350ci built Chevy engine. Fulie heads, Edelbrock torker, Holley, fender well headers, Turbo 350, custom Dana 44’s front and rear with 4.27:1 gears. Posi front and rear. Full cage, Deist 5 point harnesses, dual batteries, Ground Hawg tires. Has won many trophies for show. Very fast! Unbeaten off-road.

Now the bad news: the jeep has been siting for several years. Has rust, and occasional glitch in the transfer case (jumps out of gear once in awhile.) I think it is a linkage adjustment problem. Transfer case was rebuilt approx. 50 miles ago. With some TLC, this jeep could be one of the best in the State, as it was 20 years ago. If you are mechanically inclined, and are looking for an awesome project, this may be for you! I have over $20K in this machine. Now it just sits in the yard. Asking $3,800. Would consider trade for small pickup truck.
