James’ 1950 CJ-3A Project

Seventeen year old James emailed me the other day asking if I’d like to stop by and see his jeep while I was in Denver.  Of course, my answer was yes, so we arranged a time to visit yesterday.

After meeting him and his father, I learned that this was James’ first vehicle project.  After deciding he wanted an old flat fender, he looked around some before he found a great deal on a 1950 CJ-3A with an overdrive, a sound body and frame, and a running engine.  Unfortunately, after buying the jeep, he quickly discovered his 6’8″ body was a little lanky for a flattie.  Since he is a little big for it, his goal is to give it a light restoration, get it running good, and then sell it.  It looks oike a great father/son project and I wish them the best of luck with it!  So, expect to see this CJ-3A available on eWillys at some future point. Thanks goes to James for emailing me and sharing his jeep.

    Hey James,

    Looks great. Keep doing what you’re doing. Question, what brand and size tires are those?

    Thanks for coming by to see my jeep. My dad and I really enjoyed having you and Ann over. I’ll look forward to seeing it soon on ewillys. This is a great site and a great community thanks to you. Thanks again, and have a safe trip home.

    Greg the tires are Multi Mile super traction 6.5 -16LT. They look similar to the mb military tires.

    Wade, I am interested to sell it later on when I finish working on it. Feel free to call me at 303-518-5285.
