1952 CJ-3A Puyallup, WA For Trade


The seller is interested in trading for another jeep. He provides a list of jeeps at the bottom of the text. In his description, the seller doesn’t note that the body is a reproduction body.

“I’m listing my 1952 Willys CJ3A Jeep MAINLY for trade/possible sale consideration. The price is basically a “ballpark value” measuring tool. I’m just listing for trade vehicles I may want more than my Jeep, NOT because I need to sell or don’t like my Jeep. It is getting harder to drive as I’m getting older and would like a toy (JEEP ) that’s easier to drive (automatic, power steering, etc.) which will make sense if you read my trade list below.

Year? CJ-3A Albuquerque, NM $4800


Listed as a CJ-2A, it looks more like a CJ-3A. Oddly, this has a circular fuel inlet, but I can’t see anything else that makes me think this is some kind of 1) DJ body or 2) replacement body.


“Jeep Willys CJ-2A for sale, original engine and transmission I believe. Possibly a 1948 (missing tag on firewall for identification.) No title – but none needed for a 1948 as far as I know. $4800, and buyer tows from the yard.”

“This is a 1950 Willy’s Jeep CJ-3A barn find – kind of… This Jeep has been in storage about 10 years, other than the wheels, seats and roll-bar, as far as I can tell is stock and runs. The Jeep has been in the family for several decades and was used almost exclusively as a trail vehicle for hunting – long before today’s side-by-sides became popular. I inherited it in 2020 but is now in my garage. While it does run, when engaging the clutch, a knock occurs and the clutch does not engage so the Jeep is in Neutral until fixed. All linkage moves, but nothing happens but the knock.

Other than checking fluids and purging the fuel line before starting it about a month ago, nothing else has been done. It also comes with a complete spare rear axle as seen in the pictures. No idea why the axle was with the Jeep, no reason to believe that the stock one is in need of repair, but it was with the Jeep in storage. While I’d love to take a crack at the clutch, I know it will likely take a bit more to become road worthy, I just don’t have the passion and knowledge necessary to do this Jeep justice. Here’s where you come in… Clean Title and current non-op registration.”
