“1949 Willys Jeep CJ3A. Has the “Dauntless” V6. Turbo 400 automatic transmission. Dana 18 transfer case. Saginaw steering. Front disc brakes. Lots of new parts. $3,000 with new tires and older rims. $2,500 with older original style wheels and tires. Runs well and drives but definitely needs more restoration but that’s part of the fun with these old Willys jeeps. Make offer or if you have something of equal value maybe we can trade.

This Jeep was never titled but the price reflects that. I did a title search in Oregon where it was purchased and came up with nothing. There are ways to license and register it and it really isn’t a big deal but just know there is that issue. Added: The Transmission shifts rough and leaks and may need a rebuild.. Probably needs a new radiator. I took the gas tank off and did a coating on the inside which came out very nice. Put in a new gas tank gauge sending unit. New distributor cap and points. New coolant hoses. Runs well but I have a carburator rebuild kit for it. Changed the oil. Changed the tranny fluid. Did a flush of the coolant system.”

    Interesting engine hood, looks to be one piece with no WILLYS stamped into the hood, fiberglass?

    This Jeep is sold. I’m picking it up for a friend tomorrow. I’ll let you know about the hood but I’m betting bondo has something to do with it judging by the other things I saw when I went to look at it.

    Jeeze I wonder how hard it was to shoehorn that th400 in there

    I had an entire drivetrain from a Commando I thought about putting into a flat fender but it just seemed like the motor would have to go too far forward. Props to anyone who can pull it off

    John, I’ve heard of it being done, but, yes, it would be tight fit.
