“1953 Willys CJ3A. It runs and drives, 100% brand new T90 3-speed transmission and rebuilt steering box. Engine is an F head out of a later model versus the L head that would have come factory. 4WD works, hubs and T18 transfer case shift well in and out of 2/4WD and Hi/Lo. Also new front fenders, front suspension (springs, shackles, pivot bolts), new shocks all around. Could use a little carb tuning. Steering is tight with the tie rod ends in good shape.

Frame is straight and not all rotted out. Tub could be better, but it’s 67 year old thin sheet metal after all. Tub floor pan was also bed lined by a previous owner, and free from any cancerous rust. Great starting point for a full restore, father/son build, crawler, motor swap, whatever you want. Simple with literally every part available online to replace anything on the vehicle. Bought it as a project last year and lost interest. Reg expired in 2018 so there are some back fees, unsure what they are. Any questions just ask. 5500 obo”

    Dave, take a few more sips of coffee, this one is $5500.00. I didn’t particularly like the f-head and the hood scoop, but for $500 I was ready to hook up the trailer and get on the road! 😂
