Year? CJ-3B Leavenworth, KS $18,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/01/2021) This has a replacement body, along with a variety of mods. It’s listed as a 1947, so this might have a CJ-2A chassis.

“CJ3B Willys Jeep – the classic late 1950-1960’s era flat fender Jeep. Rebuilt 225 odd-fire V6 (with electronic ignition and Howell TBI fuel injection) transplanted from 1968 CJ-5 along with rebuilt T-14 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case and Warn Overdrive. New clutch, pilot bearing, throw out bearing, alternator, water pump, rebuilt starter. Dana 27 (front) and Dana 44 (rear) axles have 5:38s, new seals, wheel bearings, and rebuilt Selectro front hubs. Saginaw power steering, 11” drum brake conversion.

The frame is boxed in segments for strength. Warn 8472 winch that pulls hard and fast. Custom spare tire carrier with detachable cargo rack. The carrier swings out so you can access the drop-down rear tailgate. The rack has tabs to attach a hi-lift jack. The carrier does not rattle or squeak! No kidding – very heavy duty. The Jeep drives fine at 60 mph (at about 2300-2400 rpm with overdrive).

This is NOT a frame-off restoration, but built to be a reliable and capable flat fender with a “period correct feel” of a 1964-1968 Jeep (CJ3Bs and CJ5 were both produced at the same time). You can take this Jeeping with confidence. It is a capable flat fender that could easily go to the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab in a couple months.

If you like flat fenders, then you are familiar with this popular combination of the “high hood” CJ3B and the odd-fire V6. The “Dauntless” 225 V6 boasts 160 horsepower as opposed to the stock 134’s 75 horsepower. This swap gave 1953-1964 era CJ-3B more than twice the horsepower, and only weighs ten pounds more than the 134.

Receipts, documentation and lots of extra parts including Dana 41 rear axle with new ring and pinion, 2 Rochester 2G carburetors, mechanical fuel pump, various drive line shims and seals. Clear Kansas Title. Odometer shows 16,576 miles.”
