, Wow, either this seller believes what he put and knows nothing about jeeps, or well, he is just plain stupid, and there is no excuse for stupid. Just reading that made me feel dumb.

Maybe we all should flag it till he gets it right.

I always love CraigsList ads.

"4.0L V6, 1942 CJ2A, 1988 Jeep CJ7, Huge mud tires=30", are all just a few I have come across over the years.

I am missing something?

CLEARLY the seller is referring to the fact that the "JEEP" itself was designed in the early 1900s specifically for use in WW2. When I read that, it made perfect sense. The "1900s" part meaning the early part of the 20th century (with the Jeep coming out in the late 30s)

I honestly do not understand what people are confused about?

You are kidding right.

The title alone "Cj7 Military jeep ( Historic Item ) Hot Buy" is misleading. What is historic about his CJ7.

Not to mention that the CJ's were not used to transport troops in the "World Wars"

Seller was clearly referring to the heritage.

The CJ7 being a stretched version of the CJ5, and the CJ5 being the civilian version of the M38A1. That being a revised version of the M38, and that revised from the WW2-era MB.

Everyone knows that, right? I get the feeling that everyone is taking crazy pills.

I guess that someone who knows nothing about Jeeps might look at the craigslist ad and be confused from the wording. But I find it hard to believe that those on this forum did not realize the seller was talking about Jeep heritage and history?

C'mon. More likely, some are just jumping on the bandwagon.
