“1949 Willys CJ3A Fire Engine Jeep. This is a Boyer conversion. This jeep is very complete, original, and unrestored. This jeep has less less than 3200 miles on the odometer. Lots of the original accessories are still place. I understand that some of the nozzles are collectible.

The jeep has been in long term storage since it was taken out of service in 1980. The jeep is not currently running but the engine is not stuck. It will turn over by hand. The jeep was driven into the storage building that I found it in. I bought this jeep from the first civilian owner. Since this is an all original jeep, I have done nothing to it. I have not even washed the nearly 40 years of dust off of it. You are getting a very complete and untouched original fire engine jeep here. Continue reading

“In the 50’s Willys sold the right to build the CJ3 Jeep to Mitsubishi and they have built them for the last 40 years. This is a 1983 with a 4 cyl Mitsubishi diesel 2700 engine. Runs very well has a few rust spots on the body. frame and floors are great. This is a work horse of a jeep 24 volt system Dana 44 rear, Dana 30 front, 4 speed high and low range 4×4. jeep is stock with no lift but will take 31’s with out a lift. It is right hand drive and has a clear Florida title. This is much cheaper than a side by side and a lot tougher and street legal. Has the very cool CJ3 high hood design and rear jump seats. These are rare in the states but parts are easily available. This is thousands less than you will find other ones.”

Still needs some work.

“Cool Jeep Fleetvan from 1965 known as the FJ6-a model. Truck is in very good shape for the age with hardly any rust issues. Very hard to find these today especially in this condition.
The vehicle runs off a gas can. It has an electronic fuel pump that was installed too far away from the tank and too high. Needs to be moved close to tank as they push rather than pull. Will try to do this…
All glass is good except one of the front windshields. Flat glass so cost should be low.
The only issue is the back door is currently off. I have the pieces in the van but will need some work.
Should have title this week. “

Paddle Tires on Jeep Rims Milford, DE $500

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

Never hear of Padla Trak tries.

https://delaware.craigslist.org/pts/d/paddle-tires/6562257391.html

“Sand tires unlimited 16.50″ wide around 33″ tall and 15″ rim. They are mounted on 15″ x 15″ wheels with a bolt pattern of 5 on 5.5
They are very light weight and will without a doubt do what other tires can’t. They hook great. When new these tires are around $800 each without shipping. If you have looking for a used set of these, you will know they don’t show up for sale very often. This is a great price. I am selling them because I do not play off road very much anymore. The bolt pattern fits a older jeep, willys, scout, bronco, and ford trucks. If you have the power to turn them, they will throw dirt sky high. (they are fun to play around with on your old jeep or truck since they are only 33″ tall)
This is a cash and carry sale only.”

(10/31/2017) Includes a variety of extra parts.

https://eauclaire.craigslist.org/cto/d/1946-willys-jeep-cj2a/6562348271.html

“This is a well maintained 1946 CJ2A that runs well and is kept in the garage when it is not being driven. Title is clear and Mileage is about 79,000 and climbing since it is usually driven for short trips every week or two during the summer. No front end shimmy. Frame is solid and bumpers are straight. Electrical system is the original 6 volt configuration. All gauges work along with headlights, taillights, blinkers, horn, and dash light. Heater and heater fan work well. The winch was manufactured by Sears and is operated by a hand crank. The body is in decent shape and would be a good candidate to restore. It has a hard top with doors that are easily removed by pushing out the hinge pins and the rear upper gate removes like a storm window. The entire cab can be removed by unscrewing four large wing nuts around the back, and two j-Bolts holding the roof to windshield frame. There is a modified bus seat that fits nicely in the back for more passengers.

Also included are lots of new and used parts such as clutch and pressure plates, clutch rebuild kits (still in WWII packaging), front axels, U-Joints, Carburetor, differential (New still in cosmoline), new in the box sealed beam headlight, starters, tie rods and ends, water pumps and much more….

If responding by email, please put “JEEP” in the subject line so my SPAM filter doesn’t catch it.”
