Owning a military jeep is a desire for many people. Personally, I have considered it since jeeps are a huge thing here in Puerto Rico. I could just see Maggie and I cruising one of the jeep caravans that cruise through rugged areas of Puerto Rico while listening to salsa and merengue music…
Oh and I will have to throw on a George Jones or Conway Twitty tune in to let the other jeepsters know there is a Gringo in the mix.
But where should I go to buy a military jeep?
Let’s take a look at 10 places to buy military jeeps.
Every day, people are listing items on Craigslist in various parts of the country. You can find military jeeps listed in your area.
Craigslist serves a wide area so if you do not see one in your area, check other towns and cities. Just beware of Craigslist scams. This article tells you some great tips.
#2: Willys For Sale
The wonderful Willys jeeps have been an American icon for years. This website is mostly Willys, but I see a 1945 Ford GPW just listed with a price tag of $12,000. You can find the Willys jeep or truck you have dreamed of owning.
Similar to Craigslist, you can find people who are willing to sell their used military jeeps. In some cases, using an auction format, a person can get the jeep they want at a super low price.
Just make sure to read all the print about the jeep and where you will have to pick it up at. Sure, you may get a good military jeep for $100, but if you have to ship it from Bosnia… Well???
