I purchased this 1951 Willys CJ-3A from a Willys enthusiast in Prescott, Arizona. At the time, I planned to buy a cabin in Prescott and store it there, to enjoy on weekends. My plans changed, and the Willys is in my garage in Phoenix. I am not able to use it like I planned. I love the little thing and don’t have to sell it, but someone should own it who can use and enjoy it as these vehicles were meant to be used and enjoyed.

Here is the March, 2013 ad to which I responded:

1950 CJ-3A Solomon, AZ $6000


Looks solid, but not ‘completely stock’. A steering box has been added and wiring updated with fuses. Looks solid.

This is the Jeep you want…it has never been butchered or modified, it is completely stock. I am the 3rd owner. The only modifications that I have done is install Saginaw steering and Warn front hubs. The engine has a very fresh complete overhaul professionally done with approximately 5000 miles. It comes with a metal half cab with metal doors and soft doors. I hate to part with it but it is time for something different.”

1950 CJ-3A Tewksbury, MA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

(07/18/2014) Includes an extra, stock tub.

1950 CJ3A Willys Jeep for sale. Original 6 volt system with Go-Devil engine. Runs solid with title in hand. Jeep needs minor brake work and is ready for the road (or off road). Many extras are included.

I bought this as a restoration project but no longer have the time. I have pictures of the whole process if the buyer is interested. This jeep is solid and comes with an extra original tub. There is nothing wrong with the current tub… but it had body work done to it in the past (not uncommon) that took away some of the original elements. I found an unmolested tub in Nebraska and had it shipped here and was converted it to original.

The title is clean and I will be sorry to see this jeep go, but need to devote my time elsewhere. Price is negotiable if the owner is not interested in the extra tub.”

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


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This appears to have potential.

” I have a Very nice complete 1949 Willys Jeep, Model CJ3A, Serial Number 23859 in Excellent Complete Condition. Look at the beautiful Koenig hard top and the patina is killer. Everything is just surface rust, here in Colorado that’s about all the farther it goes. 42, 949 miles on the odometer. We were driving this jeep 6 years ago around the farm, and from sitting the engine will not turn. I just poured some sea-foam in the spark plug holes, hopefully it will free up easily. Other than that and needing seats, this is the most original and complete jeep I have ever owned. The engine compartment is complete, underneath is complete, transmission shifts fine, somehow the engine just stuck from sitting. Look at the dash, so nice and un-molested, still has the dash tag. Slight rust inside the trap door compartment, otherwise very very nice tub. Straight hood, nice tailgate. The driver door window has come off the track, but is not cracked and should be easy to fix. Has a key and clear Colorado title, needs a 6 volt battery. Has a tow bar on the front, gas can holder on the side. Look at the coolest side mirror ever.”

1949 CJ-3A Lancaster, NH **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8995

This militarized CJ-3A looks solid.

I am offering up for sale my 1949 Willys CJ-3A Jeep. I have owned this Jeep since 1995 after searching for years for a solid flat-fender. It was originally a Fire Jeep from New Jersey where it was used for fighting brush fires. It had always been garaged and was rust free. It has 48,000 original miles. When I acquired it, the owner had painted over the original red paint with an amateur camo pattern, so I decided to do it up as an M38 in WW2 OD. It has always run like a swiss watch. Sheet metal is all original and it is still 6-volt. I installed lock-out hubs, but have the originals. It is a very early CJ-3A, as it has the Dana 41 rear axle, and the windshield is dated Dec. 48. If you are looking for a nice original solid flat-fender, this is it! This is no cobbled-up rust-bucket resurrection like most you see for sale. I have a spare transmission/transfer case and front & rear differentials from a 1952 M38A1, all excellent, which I will include. I dearly hate to part with this Jeep, but we are moving and I will not have storage for it. This is an outstanding early Jeep and a rare opportunity. The CJ-3A is the rarest early model Jeep with only about 100,000 ever made. I will not entertain any low-ball offers, so please don’t waste your time or mine.”

Mining Mountains of Bondo in a CJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Women & Jeeps • TAGS: , .

Before restoration began on this CJ-3A This has a Blue Star hardtop.


After Restoration (and with his wife Lauren posing in front of it)

The CJ-3A in the top photo was listed on eWillys back on August 30th, 2012. It looked pretty sound to me, but according to buyer and restorer Scott Mills, a mountain of bondo was underneath the paint. Beautiful work Scott!

He writes, “I found this 49cj3a on your site 2 years ago- after sanding and a little blasting I found that someone used what seemed like 10lbs of body filler and rivets! As many of my purchases go, buyers remorse plagued me for months! Well, I replaced panels and spent hours hammering out the tub. The only splurge was a new hood and stock rims, I managed to save most everything else. My wife has a fashion blog here in Houston and used my Cj3a in this recent post:


Here is the Jeep before I cut out 50% of the tub, it looked great in these photos, little did I know…”

(07/03/2014) This looks like a good price.

Willys Jeep for sale, runs, original motor, original tranny, not original seats, original rollbar, windshield and frame in great shape, bought 4 wheels for it, crappy tires on right now. This is a somewhat a project vehicle, but with some new tires and a small amount of work would be absolutely fine for 4 wheeling and hunting. I could part this out for much more than 2500.00 but would like to see the whole jeep go. Light rust, previous owner had carpet in it but I ripped it all out.”
