1950 CJ-3A Oroville, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

This has a couple interesting features.  The first is the unusual body extender.  The seller says this is a factor original extension (which differs from the Koenig aftermarket extension).  I have not encountered a factory body extension. There is no evidence for one at the CJ-3B Page either.  The small bars in place to act as supports underneath are different than I have see as well, though could have been replaced.

The second is the rare crankshaft driven PTO which along with the mechanicals for a rear PTO.  The body looks pretty solid, per the seller’s description.  There is some work to be done, but this might be worth a look.

“Here’s a real nice, basically rust free jeep. Only rust is surface rust that you can remove by running a rag over it. This jeep seems to be a nice find. Has ordered from factory winch & brackets, PTO unit, PTO lever & winch levers, as seen in picture, on floor passenger side, Also, governer & PTO unit for rear of jeep in good shape. Also comes with a factory rear body extension, very rare. Appears to have nothing missing, as pictures will show. Motor is not froze up and turns freely by hand. Carburator, intake manifold & lifter cover are off the engine, but all the bolts and parts are there. I do not know why these items were removed from jeep, due to death of the man that used to own this jeep. Due to there being two manifolds, I am guessing there might have been a miss due to an air leak or gasket leak, and possibly he bought new manifold to solve the problem, again I don’t know. As seen in the pictures, the hat channel under this jeep, is not all rusted out and body has never been removed. Again, very clean, very nice jeep. Call for more info or pictures.”

    I see you have made a special note on the winch. What are your thoughts on a Koenig crankshaft driven winch? I am restoring a CJ3A, passed down from my grandfather, and he had one of these on it. I am debating on whether I should put it back on. Thoughts?

    Hi Ryan,

    I have no personal experience with them. Given you are restoring your grandfather’s jeep, I think restoring it and putting it back on adds some additional uniqueness, since they are rare. And, for resale, I believe its rarity adds value too.

    Now, if you plan to use the winch for jeeping, you might better be served switching to an electric winch.

    Here’s a short bit about them written by Jim Allen:
