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 .
Stretched with other mods, it appears to have the original engine.
“This is a heavily modified 1952 Willy’s Jeep. It has a Rusty’s based 3 bar suspension front and rear. The body has stretched 10″ and custom 18″ wheels and off road tires bolted up to the Dana axles. It is also equipped with a 6 point roll cage and a PSC hydraulic steering unit. It has the original flathead four cylinder and Solex carb. Only 320 miles since restoration.”
(07/10/2015) Because this sits on a post ’71 CJ-5 chassis, the front clip has been lengthened.

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.”
“For your consideration, 1942 army jeep made by Ford motor company. 4 cylinder Willy ‘s flathead with recent overhaul. New battery/ starts & runs great. New army seats & gas tank to install- has aluminum tank in rear bed now. Five nice tires, minimal rust. Previous owner applied some bondo over good metal. Master cylinder has been removed. I’ve cleaned it & it appears ready to re-install. Rebuild kit is only $20. Also, previous owner said brakes & hubs are in good shape. Transfer case (4 wheel drive) operates quietly. O.E.M. Gas Tank & Seats are worth $1,000.00. I’m NOT a mechanic, ready to bail out at a loss. First $2,500.00.”
“(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.
“53 WILLYS HAS BEEN STRETCHED TO FIT A LATE MODEL DODGE FRAME. SITTING ON 39″ TIRES. ONLY MISSING MOTOR, WAS SET UP FOR BIG BLOCK DODGE. HAS AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. DO HAVE RADIATOR, HEADERS, AND EXHAUST WITH IT. MIGHT CONSIDER PARTIAL TRADE. 859area code five82-3710″
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.
“This 1953 M38A1 original custom jeep that has been fully restored, includes canvas soft top, military green, 4wd, & it is great condition. Original engine (just rebuilt), added a fuel pump, everything works – all lights, horn/siren, blinkers, windshield wipers, seat belts, etc.”
This is the third stretched jeep I’ve seen for sale in the Spokane area in the last few years. It is possibly a CJ-2L.
“I think its a 1944 willys jeep has the original flathead 4 cylinder four wheel drive works. was used to plow the driveway has a back blade. Hasn’t been ran since last winter should run, the frame has been broke by the front leaf springs.”

There are reinforced top rails in the tub at the top rails and door ways, as well as contoured skid rails built into the body at the rock line of the tub. I’ve spent over 500 hours fabricating this Jeep and and twice the asking price in expense. This vehicle is nearly re-completed, after the V6 engine upgrade, and the dual transfer case upgrade, but does need finishing.”

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 . . .
