1950 CJ-3A Huntington Beach, CA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE:**Status Unknown** Was $3200

(09/15/2013) I like this old modded flattie. It even has a rare 198 Buick V6. The old top is great, too. Includes an overdrive.

    The chev Monza started out with a 140 CID 2.3 liter engine (same that was in the vega). In 1978 a 196 CID chev designed V-6 engine was added as an option. What I can’t determine is whether that was an aluminum or cast iron block. Interestingly, the chev V6 was not an option for high altitude areas (the option for high altitude was the buick 231 CID).

    The compact size of the monza radiator is great for tight jeep engine compartments.

    Yes, I knew that part. However, based on one of the wikipedia entries, the buick 198 was designed in the 1960s. However, it appears the chev also designed a v6 (196ci) that was designed in the 1970s. Since the monza 4cyl was aluminum, I was wondering if the chev designed 196 was also aluminum.

    Here’s the link check out about 2/3 of the way down the 3rd paragraph.

    Interesting stuff!

    I wonder if the chrome “special ” emblem came off the same Buick the engine came from. I have never seen that style top before, it is good looking. I also like the deep rims and the air cleaner installation. The more I look at this jeep, the more I like it. It would be interesting to know when the motor was swapped.

    It looks like a soft top version of a kelly hardtop. I’ll have to do more research to figure it out.
