Trying to find a jeep from my childhood...

As a boy, my dad owned a jeep...a willys 1953-54 military jeep. All I can remember is how much my brother and I loved this old, seemingly legendary vehicle. Identifying factors are that it had a 283 Chevy motor in it and several shifters for the gearboxes. It had a warn winch, snorkel cutouts on the hood..
Has anyone seen this one around?? I'd like to get it back in the family for my child and my was just too cool and special to us. It was sold in Atlanta ga about 15-20 years ago..
I know it's a long shot, but I had to post!
