Randy, I have 4 old jeeps
Exactly what are you looking for? They are getting scarce and harder to find, especially decent ones.
I just picked up a 52 M38A1 that is in good shape, just needs a good tune up. I will be putting it up for sale soon and I have a CJ3A that is for sale too.
Only problem is, I am in Colorado and you would have a long but beautiful drive.

I have 2 friends here in North East MS that sell used mail Jeeps with the straight six Ford nd 4 cylinder Audi engines. THey have 3:73 9 inch positve trac rearends to. They make good farm and wods trucks because of there big cabs with sliding doors. I have another friend that bought one and we put good mud tires on the back and ribbed 14 inch steering tires off a tractor. It did very well in the mud and in the woods for a 2 wheel drive.

I am looking for a used mail jeep to run a rural mail route. I'm looking for something affordable but very soon. If you know of anyone who will be selling one reasonable please let me know! Any shape is fine.

Actually they had 6cyl Jeep engines, the 232. The 4cyl could be either the Audi or a Chevy.
For postal Jeeps give a look at postaljeep.com

Millions of em out there...

Take a drive this Sunday after church and look behind every house and barn...I can alomost guarantee that you will find a half dozen per hour and will likely be able to get them for a song...

Good thing you are that far away from me as I don't tell this to people that will be my competition here ;-)

Howdy Randy,
Tried Ebay? I see them there often. Good luck in your search. Ever see one with a 3 point hitch?
Just seen photos myself.

Mike,
I have some old full-page ads from around 1950 that show jeeps with three-point hitches and PTOs. Really cool stuff-- I'd love to have one to play with on the farm, but I'll bet those things fetch a real premium.

Darren


No Foolin?    Posted 11-25-2003 at 07:23:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
Can you show us those? Post them somehow? Yep,
I'd love to see one pullin a plow... bet it ain't a 6 bottom semi-mount! Mike D.

our neighbor kid brought one back from the service - we hooked a breaking plow to it and soon found out it needed lower gears - unless you like skeet-shooting at airborne furrows - what a comical sight with johnny's jeep bouncing along launching brush-laden divots and half the township farmers chasing the plow-handles fer dear life - oh it pulled alright! more fun than trying to inseminate a drunken ostrich :)
