Unclear how much value is here.

“1950 CJ3A for sale. It is located in Raton NM. The Jeep originally was a ranch jeep around Westcliff Colorado before I purchased it.


The good:
-Clean title
-All info plates present
-New tires on original 15″ rims
-New valves, valve guides, and lapped seats
-Cylinders honed and rings replaced
-Comes with a complete new brake kit from Walck’s (not installed)
-Very little rust. A couple of little pinholes under the gas tank and one dime sized hole in the front right fender.
-New tires

The “needs attention”:

-The body is pretty banged up from years of being a working Jeep. My intention was to get it going and embrace the character.
-Gas tank is an older aftermarket and it doesn’t fit very well.
-Missing passenger seat and air filter
-Has a late 40’s L134 with a CJ2A engine mount plate. Comes with the correct CJ3A plate, which will need to be installed. The previous owner made an adapter to mount the engine, but the better solution is the put the correct plate on.

This is a neat old ranch Jeep. It probably isn’t a candidate for a fine restoration, but it would make for a really fun farm or hunting truck. It is a project. The engine runs well, but all other systems will need to be gone through.”
