The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .
At some point someone took the 1957 Jeep Willys body from the frame. They cut and extended the body by 13.5 inches right in the middle of the door frame. They sprayed the under body with a rust inhibitor and dropped the body on a late 80’s CJ-7 frame. The AMC straight 6, transmission, axles and etc are all original to the CJ-7 (as far as I know). Registered as a 57 Willys.
I take it out around town twice a month or so. Good BF Good All Terrains on it. Wanted to tinker with it but don’t have much time or expertise. Now have #2 baby on the way. Make me an offer also interested in a trade for a side by side, 4 wheeler, or bumper pull trailer.
Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll try to answer any questions to the best of my rookie knowledge.”

“(07/03/2008) Well, you don’t see these driving down the street every day. I thought the price of $5500 was a bit high, but then I realized it doesn’t come with an engine. I’d be interested in seeing the inside to see how nicely this stretch job was done.

I think this same jeep was for sale back in 2012. The only difference that I see is the lack of MVPA text on the driver’s side.

Posted at bangshift (though I couldn’t find this original link), referenced by Jalopnik, linked to by Kaiser Willys, and forwarded by Colin, here is a great video of a coast guard “super jeep” in action.
TRAVELS 60 MPH OVER SANDY BEACHES
At a Coastguard Station on the Atlantic Coast, U.S. Coast Guards men recently demonstrated a new super-jeep, carrying 10 men and traveling up to 60 miles an hour over sand. Officials said the super-jeep was developed to meet special problems of Coast Guard shore patrols. Chassis of a regulation jeep was halved and steel shafts inserted to add one yard to its wheelbace. Seats for 10 were installed and specially designed wheels employed to permit travel over any kind of beach.
As a basis for comparison, the regular Army jeep tried to follow the super-jeep over the same course, but foundered in the deep sand. The super-jeep was developed in the Coast Guard transportation office to meet the special demand that branch of services has for a vehicle capable of moving through sand . . .
“For sale is a 1946 Willies CJ2a jeep. The jeep has been cut and stretched 2 feet in the door opening. It is lined on the inside. Has a snorkel 38 in swampers with bead lock wheels. Has a 350 Chevy with turbo 350 transmission. Also has an aluminum radiator that is mounted under the jeep above the rear axle.
Asking $6500 cash or open to offers or trades. Please no spam and I do not need help selling this vehicle.

The seller notes this is one of a kind, despite not knowing what type of toy this is. This looks like a cross between a troop MB/GPW carrier and a CJ-3B. Anyone recognize it?
