Description for Jeep Cj5 1955

1955 Willis jeep in superb rust free condition. This is a 2 owner jeep, have a copy of the original title. This jeep was an oddity, ery solid. The old F head engine cranks right up but does have some smoke. The transmission is tight, hifts like new. Cute little jeep, 'm sure it had a lot of use at some point but the miles are unknown. it was well cared for and obviously not left out in the weather for 50 years so it was probably kept in a barn, aking it a barn find. I also have the warn overdrive I will install for an additional fee if the buyer is interested. Seats are brand new and the jeep is well detailed. A few nice points:1) new windshield and paint2) rhino lined interior3) roll bar added. Homebrew top supports will accept a CJ7 soft top. Has an old one on it (enough to keep the rain out)4) completely serviced, riginal speedo. Did add some in dash gages and its all new wires5) no filler, o bondo to crack. Exterior will have some small dents but no hidden surprises and easy to touch up.6) roadworthy and street legal.

Most jeeps go through years of evolution and are generally rusted out and rebuilt many times over. This one was mostly original and I didn't expect it to run. On the lift, t was such a nice example that I decided not to upgrade the motor. The little F head is around 70HP, ut with the low gears this thing will off road excellent. It was designed to idle in low gear at a foot pace in WW2. I see people drop big bucks on ATV's, et still have a vehicle of little use for hauling some gear, ogs and friends. I serviced the gear boxes and changed the oil, ts almost weird how well it runs and it's even quite stable. High range, ow range, ubs, ransfer case, iffs- all are tight. This is the ride for the off roader that likes a little vintage and this is a far better investment than an ATV. You can get up to 55 but the RPM is high so 45 is a realistic top end. I can add an overdrive for an additional fee if interested. its still a very useful extra vehicle and pretty handy for a lot of uses. Endless aftermarket upgrades are available but I personally would leave it as is.
About me- I'm a car guy and find lots of rust free western vehicles. Its a hobby so I enjoy tinkering. You can see I'm 100% rated- I don't care to misrepresent the car nor do I need to. East coast buyers are always amazed to see what rust free really means and I also get a lot of Canadians. I'm not a shipper but I can toss it on a flatbed and meet people in neighboring states at times. I also horse trade, f you have a car project you are tired of I'm open to talk. You have to contact me through ebay, oo many scammer these days and I also require a paypal deposit- again to weed out the scammers. I also prefer that you see it in person and if anything is misrepresented I'll gladly refund and undo the deal. Only sold on an as is basis.
