1951 CJ-3A Falkville, AL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3200.

This is an ex-United Airlines jeep with a brass plaque still attached. It might be an interesting restoration if some early pictures can be found.

“This is a 1951 Willys Jeep with a 1946 windshield. The jeep was used by United Airlines to pull luggage carts and still has a brass plate on the dash with United Airlines and the vehicle number on it. Because of it’s use it only shows 6,823 miles on the odometer. I have no way of knowing if this is actual miles but have no reason for believing that it is not. When I put new tires on the Jeep last year the old tires looked new as far as wear but were dry rotted. The jeep was painted 3 years ago after any rusty areas were repaired with fiberglass resin and fiberglass matt. The repairs were not fixed with bondo. The vehicle is for fun and not for show. I have grandsons from age 4 to age 25 and some of them learned to drive a straight shift in this jeep. The paint job is not perfect by a long shot. The jeep is near perfect mechanically including transmission, rear end, transfer case, 4 wheel drive, steering, and brakes. Brakes were rebuilt this year. Motor cranks every time, does not smoke, and has always been dependable. Jeep has an antique tag and is road worthy. If you are looking for a Jeep that is mechanically sound, dependable and a lot of fun this may be it. Is mostly original except it is painted and has decals as a military jeep but it was not. The seats are mustang seats covered by me.”

    It would be neat to see this restored as an airline jeep. Anyone seen this done before? A quick Internet search didn’t yield even a good picture example.

    I would check with United Airlines to see if they have a history department. They might have photo examples. Also, the Willys Overland news magazines (hard to find) might have examples too.

    Here is an interesting toy the might have reflected a united airlines jeep:

    I will create a post to see if readers know anything more.
