1957 CJ-5 Rockwall, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was No Price.

This has been stretched 13.5″.

“Interesting little Jeep. 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.”

(05/14/2012) Normally I think flatties that are stretched in the middle look a little odd.  However, this looks to me like a stretch well done.  I like the price on this too.

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.

Coast Guard Lengthened Jeep AKA The Invader Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), videos • TAGS: , , .

Coast Guard Super-Jeep at the National Guard Militia Museum in New Jersey.

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.

NEWS ARTICLES:

1) From the May 06, 1944, Perth Mirror in Australia:

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.

2) Volume 70 of the U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings discusses the results of the Coast Guard Jeep. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the whole document. I do have this:

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 . . .

1947 CJ-2Aish Wilmington, NC $2800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:   Price now $2800.

(07/11/2012) This is a CJ-2A body on some later model chassis (maybe CJ-5). The hood was lengthened, among other changes.  The front fenders are unusual.  This doesn’t run at the moment.

“I am selling a 1947 Jeep Willys. The Jeep was a gift for my graduation, but I just don’t have the time to put into restoring it. This Jeep is the civilian version of the exact vehicle used in WWII. The 1947 is harder to find than most CJ model Jeeps. The engine is a Chevy 305 V8 with an edelbrock carb. The transmission has been switched to automatic. There is surface rust on parts of the vehicle, but could be sanded out with a little work. The vehicle currently needs a battery and rear axle in order to run. I am including a recently purchased rear and front axle in this sale for no extra charge. The gauges and rear tail lights need re-wiring, but front lights and signals work just fine. This Jeep is a lot of fun on the beach and would be a great project for any classis car enthusiast. If you have any questions or would like to see the vehicle, please contact me by phone or email.

I’m looking for a fishing boat. I prefer center console, but would consider other options. The boat needs to be in good shape and include a trailer and motor. Email, call, or text if interested in trading. I do prefer pictures if available.

Thanks for looking. Cell – 336-214-7978”
