• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500. Not surprisingly, this didn’t last long.

Seems worth a look at this price.

“New parts within the last two years:

New aluminum radiator
New windshield
New battery
New toyota starter (better than stock)
New master cylinder
New tires
New fuel pump
New throw out bearing
and probably more I forgot…

This is a 1960 Willys CJ-3B. It is by no means perfect, but starts right up and would probably drive anywhere you want as long as you don’t want to go fast.

The body is fair, the interior is pretty good.
The motor runs great, the brakes work but pull to the left. The tires are reproduction vintage, so they’re only a couple of years old but look like OEM. The lights all work, and I’ve got a clear NM title.

The speedometer was broken when I got it, I replaced it with a different one, I have no idea what the actual mileage is, but you can tell how slow you’re going!

I’m asking $5500, and would consider partial trades for ATV’s, dirt bikes, Willys parts, maybe others.”

    Vernon,

    Thanks for the update!

    You are a bit off on the 1953 3B % math, as there were actually more CJ-3Bs produced in 1954 (35,972) than 1953 (33,047) (stats from here https://cj3b.info/SerialNos.html). The production in years 1953 + 1954 equate to just under 80% of all 3Bs produced.

    sir ? i was just kidding about the 99.9% , it just seems like most cj-3b’s for sale are 1953’s — speaking of cj-3b’s , theres an urban legend that jeep made a few cj-3b’s with 225 v-6’s , what the deal Neil ?

    Vernon,

    I know you were kidding, but it was a good change to share the info. That said, sometimes it does seem like 1953 CJ-3Bs are the most resold.

    Given the V6 was an option by 1966, it certainly seems possible that a few had that engine installed. Unfortunately, I have no documentation to prove that possibility.
