I am a professional mechanic and have owned and serviced vintage jeeps since 1965, when I got my first Cj2a. I have been bombing around my property and the neighborhood for a week and fixing everything that comes up. Now it is road or trail ready. I have 2 other vintage jeeps already so I will sell this one. I have a truck and trailer and can deliver it for you at low cost as I am about 100 miles from Colorado Springs. Email me, Fred, to give me a phone number and set up a time to come see it, or ask questions. I will call or text. Or we can email through craigslist, but if you are serious, we should probably talk.”

“Original 1952 CJ3A survivor Willys Jeep. Less than 10500 original miles. 3rd owner. This jeep was purchased new by a college in Northern California and spent most of its life on campus. This jeep still is the original Normandy Blue paint from the factory. The body is still the original steel body with zero rust.
I took the body off the frame and redid everything as far as the running gear goes. The motor is rebuilt, new pistons, cam, rings bearings, clutch, valves etc. New brakes, brake lines and seals. The tires are like new in the original size 15 inch.
It has an overdrive. It has never had seatbelts installed or a roll bar. I have the original rear step bumper for it that was dealer installed in 1952.
The jeep did not come with a heater but I have an original Harrison heater that needs to be restored ; it also has an original factory 6 volt heater switch.
It comes with a Koenig hardtop in pieces that need to be restored. I have a “Tight Steer” for the steering box that is not installed. It has cutlass pwr lock hubs on it and comes with a set of “Warn” summer hubs from the 50’s.
Seats have been redone to original and it still is 6 volt and has the foot starter. All original gauges and they work.
ALA tail lights”
