1953 CJ-3A Orange Beach, Al eBay


1953_cj3a_orangebeachHere’s another one of these Willys/Toyota hybrids.  It appears to have been a well executed transformation, though the front bumper is a little underwhelming.

“This auction is for my 1953 Willys Jeep built using my many years of experience owning and using lifted Jeeps as daily drivers.The very clean Willys Jeep body is mounted on a Suzuki Samurai frame. This was done to gain a light weight, fully boxed, straight and rust free frame.  I installed a Toyota 20R mated to a Toyota 4 speed transmission and 2 speed transfer case. These were bought with about 80,000 miles on them per the previous owner.The engine starts immediately and does not smoke. I upgraded to an electronic distributor and purchased a used MSD box (works great). I am also running a remanufactured Holley 32/36 carburetor.The transmission shifter has a lot of play but there are no issues with how it works (it does not  pop out of gear or make noises).  A new clutch was put in when the transmission was installed.”
