Default 1959 Jeep CJ Stainless Custom

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/RARE-...item51a12a9099

This is a handcrafted Stainless Steel Jeep made in the Philippines! The car was imported into the United States in 1979 by a man named Wesley Carrell.

Wesley was in the military and stationed in the Philippines just after the Vietnam war. While he was there he fell in love with the Stainless steel Jeeps that the locals were crafting. The CJ3 Jeeps left over from the Vietnam war rusted very badly, so the locals started to make stainless steel bodies that wouldn't rust in their externally humid climate.

Wesley paid $5500 + shipping and taxes in 1979 to bring this Jeep home to Mississippi. Once he had the Jeep home he paid to have the brakes to be converted from mechanical to Hydraulic. He also paid to have a 4 cylinder Ford Pinto engine with automatic transmission installed. The Jeep does come with a soft top, however it is a little old. It has a few tears.


Wesley drove and enjoyed this Jeep until 2003 when he passed away. I bought the Jeep from his sister whom inherited the Jeep. When I bought the Jeep I had every intention of restoring the it, however I have too many project cars and wont be able to put work into the Jeep anytime soon. I just bought a 1970 GTO Judge which will be taking up my spare time.

The body is mounted on a 1959 Willys Jeep frame. The Jeep runs, drives, and stops under its own power. However to will need a tune up or it will possibly need the carburetor rebuilt before it can be driven anywhere.

The Jeep can be driven onto a trailer or car carrier!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunely, don't let this pass you by! You need this Jeep for your collection!

The body isn't perfect but it is nice. The sides of the body have some waves, the tailgate and one of the rear bumpers is dented. I just added a better picture of the tailgate. Reproduction stainless steel tail gates and bumpers are avaliable.

The Jeep is 2 wheel drive!
