Jeep 1941-2002

If the Jeep of your dreams is going to be used rather than preserved, then explore the market with eyes wide open and a firm hand on your wallet.

The $20,000 being sought for WW2/Korean-era military Jeeps is fair enough, however CJ-7/CJ-8 V8s at $25,000 need to be offering a lot more than nostalgia to justify that money.

A CJ-5 or CJ-6 is cheaper and also delivers the classic Jeep shape, the 1990s Wrangler with stock six-cylinder engine works just fine in sand and on rough tracks and good ones sell below $10,000.

If you want beefy looks and a big V8 with consumption to match, the last of the Grand Wagoneers combines flashy paint and interior luxury with off-road competence, all for around $30,000.

GPW 1941-53 $19,900 [6] 

CJ-5/CJ-6 $9900 [6] 

CJ-7-CJ-8 $25,150 [8]

Cherokee/Wagoneer 1977-89 $24,380 [5] 

Wrangler 1996-02 $8990 [25]
