This has any unusual extension setup along with shorter rear barm doors. Maybe a Koenig hardtop?

“I am sad to be posting this but here it is. This is a one of a kind Hardtop Jeep Willys CJ3A. It has 18,500 original miles and the motor was rebuilt at 15,826 in 2016 ($3000 of work that I have the paperwork for).

Shocks were replaced at 15,665 miles. It is converted to 12volt. Its got brake lights and blinkers. 4×4 high and low work perfectly. The hardtop is custom fitted and fabricated, they didn’t make these with hardtops back then. This is a one of one Jeep Willys with an awesome patina, it could be sanded and panted easily but I would say don’t do it, keep that patina alive.

There is no rust on this jeep aside from the surface rust/patina you can see. This is a two owner Willys that spent the first 15000 miles of its life at a cabin in eagle. It was never beaten up or abused. It was bought in 1951 in Colorado and has lived its whole life here.

Currently, my priority is trying to buy a home so I cannot afford this project. I never thought I would sell this car and wont let it go unless the price is right. If you are looking for the deal of a lifetime look elsewhere, but if you are looking for the Jeep of a lifetime here it is :). I will respond to anyone who knows and respects the value of this piece of history.

This summer I….
replaced/upgraded the starter
replaced/upgraded ignition coil replaced spark plugs
changed oil and filter rebuilt the carb
replaced the battery brand new tires
brand new 9.5k winch

“Problems”… The carb needs to be tuned, there is a timing issue where the engine will stall if the gas is pressed rapidly, this is an easy fix for the right buyer or a vary cheap fix for a professional. That is the only “problem”.”
