“1946 Willy’s Jeep with Subaru motor and chassis. A great project car that also runs.
We have more spare parts and extra tires and wheels too – all included.
Currently has a dead battery from sitting over the winter. We have used this on our property as a “mule” cart.
It is not titled, but I just called DMV and there is a simple process to take care of that to make it street legal.”

1951 CJ-3A Chesterfield Twsp, MI **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

Lots of custom jeep here.

“Selling my 1951 CJ3A. It has been re-bodied out of aluminum, so rust will not be an issue. The frame is clean and this beast is powered by a 4 cylinder turbo Diesel engine. This winter the jeep received new BDS 3″ lift springs, a 4 wheel disc brake upgrade, Borgeson steering upgrade for improved performance off-road. The jeep has new plastic racing seats for easy cleaning and a removable steering wheel for easier entry and exit from the jeep. The jeep also has a set of new 31″ Lauflenn off-road tires. The jeep is very nice and only needs a new owner. I have a growing family and need a few more seats in an off-road vehicle. Price is $5000 obo. The only trade considered would be a Subaru Forester or outback.”

1949 CJ-3A Meeker, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE **SOLD** Was $2000.

It’s a project.

“ve had this willys for 4-5 years, and Ive been building it dreadfully slow. The time has come to pass it to the next guy. Im only selling the body, Title and frame but may possibly sell as a roller. The frame alone cost me $3000 to build, Its a Throttle Down Kustoms frame built out of 3/16th square tubing and mandrel bent. The body needs the final welding done to it to finish it off. I Rebuilt it from the Cowl back with new body panels. Im into the body about $2500. Will include a ton of builders parts Ive accumulated over the years. The frame hasn’t been modified in anyway so its ready for your LS1, 350 Small block, or Any other engine you can make fit. Setup for toyota axles but you could put Narrowtrac Dana 44’s from a wagoneer easily enough. Clear Colorado Title in My Name. Price drop Will take $2000 OR Trade for Subaru AWD cars”

“I have a 1942 frame and a 1947 tub. It is titled as a 1942.
Willys needs the following work to be road worthy;
New or rebuilt carb. This one has sat with gas in it.
New starter. The one that it has is missing a couple of teeth on the gear.
Windshield glass. I have the gaskets, just not the flat glass.
The wood blocks that go on the hood so that you can lower the windshield.

Here’s an Odd One

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Marty spotted this crazy looking thing.

“I have for sale a home built street legal buggy thing that looks like an old military willys jeep. It has a FULL drivetrain, suspension, engine, transmission, dash, heater and electronics out of a 1978 Subaru brat! Does not run currently (I got it that way)! I was going to get it going but I’ve moved on to something else. It will need to be trailered or delivered for the right price. It’s all there and the top is in great shape! Engine turns over smooth by hand but that’s as far as I got with it. It does have a clean wa title and yes it s street legal!”

Glenn’s Accident in Miss Willy

• CATEGORIES: Features

A couple days ago Glenn Byron was driving to a local Parking Lot Hot Dog Stand Display in his DJ-3A “Miss Willy” when a 90 year old driver pulled a left turn right in front of his bright yellow Jeep. The driver claimed the sun was in his eyes and he didn’t see glenn. Glenn hit the brakes, leaving about 5 foot skid marks from all four wheels before impact.

A nearly new Subaru was the victim, hit on passenger side, side air bags deployed, and probably totaled. The impact caused Miss Willy to flip onto her drivers side and slide a very short distance.
Miss Willy has bent frame, broken windshield, whole nose screwed up, and who knows how much more.

Fortunately, Glenn seems to be okay, though he did get hit on the head pretty good, causing him to be a little foggy. He’s not sure, but he believes he was ejected. No one seems to know of for sure.

1949 CJ-3A Colorado Springs, CO **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $7500.

(11/08/2014) Looks like a fun rig.

1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co21 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co22 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co3 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co4

“The previous owner told me this rig was custom built in the late 1960’s as a no-kidding Sand Dune racer.

It’s incredibly fast! It will hold 65 MPH up Vail Pass on I-70 while barely touching the gas. The v8 motor is very strong, but when you combine it with such a small / light vehicle, it’s just crazy. The motor fires right up and is very strong, doesn’t burn any oil.

I believe it is a reproduction CJ3A steel body and not original Willys. I do have a clear Colorado title in my name. The bottom of the “tophat” channels underneath the tub are rusted, but the actual tub pan itself is very clean, and the frame is clean and solid.

The paint job is probably 20 years old, so is faded but still looks okay. I can’t stop for gas or pull up to a stoplight without someone drooling over it or asking questions.

Bill Carter’s CJ-3B

For quite some time I’ve heard rumors that eWillys was causing daily slowdowns at the ARB USA headquarters in Renton, Washington, which just happens to be down the hill from my parents’ house. Yesterday I finally got a chance to investigate the issue, thanks to an invite by Mitch Carter.


For those that don’t know, ARB was founded by Anthony Ronald Brown in Australia in the 1970s. Originally the company produced bumpers, but quickly grew through the development of other products. They also grew by purchasing additional manufacturers (air lockers, suspensions, and more) and expanded across models and years to provide a wide array of 4×4 products. They even have some portable cooler-like refrigerators made for off-road folks that will freeze food. Today ARB is the largest 4×4 distributor in Australia and the company exports products around the world.

Mitch gave me a tour of the ARB facility. Given all the equipment they handle, they need a big warehouse. This is just the front area:
