Description:

1956 Jeep CJ

Up for sale is a1956 Willys Jeep CJ5, fully custom and rebuilt top to bottom.

I purchased this Jeep in 2011 from the individual who completed the rebuild. I have receipts documented (listed below) which total $31,545.97, much of it in parts, some are missing. I would estimate the total cost around $35k invested. Over the years I have not put many miles on it as I have only driven it short distances periodically. In addition the the build, I have put around $1.5k sorting out a few issues. It runs perfectly. This is not a modern jeep and will not drive like one, but it will climb like crazy. It is not meant to go fast, it is loud, and it rattles, it's hot but it is oh so awesome.

Approximately 250 miles have been put on it since the rebuild.

Some highlights:

  • GM Aluminum V6 231 3.8l long block
  • Dana T-18 Transfer case
  • Dana 30 Axle
  • Dana 44 Axle
  • Edelbrock 4-barrel carb
  • Rancho RS9000 shocks
  • VDO gauge pack
  • Power steering
  • Full harnesses
  • Warn winch
  • Body professionally coated with bed liner
  • Frame fully powdercoated
  • Super Swamper tires
  • KC Lamps

This Jeep is listed under an Arizona Assigned Identification Number (AZ-327331) which means it has a clean title and can be registered anywhere. It does not have an original 1956 Jeep title as the VIN was removed during restoration, and the AZ DMV would not allow it to be registered because of the removal.
