    If anybody is interested in this 3B, I live a few miles from it.
    I’d be happy to go look at it for you.
    I’m on the CJ-3B forum – johnrb
    Also on the CJ-2A and Old Willys forums – johnrb3b

    I went with John to go see this Willys yesterday. It has not been hacked up and seems mostly original. The body tub is pretty rough (repairable but would be a lot of effort), but the frame and everything else is reasonably solid. The engine starts and idles well. It’s definitely a solid candidate for a restoration project.

    The no title thing is frustrating on all these old jeeps. Also, does anyone recognize the top on this 3b? Looks like a modified cj5 fiberglass top.

  4. Justin

    I purchased a 3B without a title a few years back in IL and It was reasonably easy to file for a lost title. Wasn’t the $200ish that was the problem, it was the wonderful state taking a year to get it to me..

  5. Doug

    Looks Like the ad is down, so maybe he managed to sell it. John and I were hoping someone would grab it since it was a solid candidate for a restoration. Neither of us had the space for it at the moment.

    Bob – The top was actually off a CJ5 which his son used to own. It was for sale separately (with doors) for $500.
