2 Stainless Body Kits for Sale Oakland County, Mi $5000 each

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, CJ-2A, CJ-3A, stainless/jewels • TAGS: .

Mark has 2 Stainless Kits still available at $5000 or both for $8000, which readers have likely seen listed previously.

However, this time I got curious, so I did some math.  I went to 4WD.com and priced out the cost of buying steel versions of the same parts, just to see a price comparison.  Here is the result:

$3400 for non willys stamped CJ-3A tub (includes fenders, body , tailgate, windshield frame)
$361 hood
$246 grille
$150 roll bar
$213 seat frame
$213 seat frame
$300 bumpers
$700 White Vinyl Top
$5583 total

Not included in that total are other parts that are included in the stainless kit:

$?  Frame
$? Grab bars
$? Other parts

So, $5000 is looking like a pretty good price for all those parts, especially given they are stainless steel.  To see how they look together, you can see 1 of several stainless jeeps Mark assembled below.

“For sale is a COMPLETE stainless steel cj2a jeep kit MINUS DRIVETRAIN. These kits were imported in from the Phillipines years ago, I have built 5 of them and lost interest in the last 3 so instead of them sitting in the corner of my garage for another 10 yrs I have decided to sell them. I sold one last year and now have 2 left.

The kit includes: mild steel frame, stainless tub, grill, fenders, hood, tailgate, windshield frame, seat frames, rollbar, grab bars, and TONS of other stainless accessories. the top is white vinyl.
Asking $5,000 CASH each, I will not ship but am willing to crate and help load when picked-up or if buyer arranges all the shipping details i will help load. Attached is a older pic, I can email more (having problem uploading them). Please feel free to PM or call with any questions, Mark 248-818-8560 Located in Oakland County, MI”

Stainless Body Images from a Swiss Site

• CATEGORIES: stainless/jewels • TAGS: .

I wandered across this swiss website today (.ch — though the seller is in Mulheim, Germany).  Apparently, it is a reseller of stainless steal bodies.  The site has a variety of images, which I suspect were taken in the Phillipines.  It looks like these bodies are built in someone’s backyard.  Anyway, I thought the pics were interesting, so here they are.  For 3500 Euros, you can get a complete setup for your Jeep.

1951 Stainless Jeep Studio City, Ca $55,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, stainless/jewels • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Price dropped.

(03/10/2010) The only Jeep of it’s kind in the US?  Oh contraire mon seller.  But, it’s still pretty cool.  Strangely, the seller lists the Jeep as brushed aluminum on the title instead of stainless.

“This rare find — a completely handmade, completely stainless steel Jeep — was commissioned in the Philippines in 1981 and custom built by then-President Ferdinand Marcos. It was later purchased by a well-known national television news correspondent, who then had this one of a kind Jeep shipped back to Los Angeles. It has never been driven. With less than 10 miles on the odometer, this classic style “Eisenhower” Jeep is a vintage car collector’s dream. The exterior is like new; it’s been protected in a fully-covered, temperature-controlled garage since its trip to the United States. To our knowledge this is the only Jeep of its kind in the U.S. The brushed-exterior is in supreme condition. The engine is a rebuilt 1953 Willy’s V-8 that needs only minor service. Complete vehicle sold as is.”

1946 CJ-2A Woodland, Ca **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  A reader reports this has been sold.

This appears to be a very nice rig and I think it’s a very good value given it’s got a stainless steel chrome windshield. I’m pretty sure the seller means sm420 tranny.  Interestingly, the very top pic on the bulletin board shows an external fan attached to the outside of the grille.   I don’t know if that’s a new feature or an old one, but it would suggest there might be cooling problems.

“Thinking about selling the wifes rig. She never drives it and Im tired of seeing it sit. $4000 obo.  200 miles on new chevy 350, hyper pistons, small cam, 1.6:1 roller rockers, 4bb quadrajet carb. 31″ tires, 95% tread.
