1951_cj3a_howardUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1600.

Yeah, the body isn’t a pretty picture.  But, the drive train sounds like it might have potential.

“I am selling a 1951 Willys CJ3A jeep. The jeep looks to be all original except for the front and rear axle and a few other small parts. It has the ww2 jeep axles under it. The jeep’s body is in good shape and since there has been a hard top on it for years there is vary little rust. No gone through rust in the floor.

David and his friends transport themselves back in time each each fall by getting out their jeeps, heading to the woods, and cleaning brush, trees and other obstacles out of the way in preparation for winter snowmobiling in New York.

David’s owned his (the gray ’51 CJ-3A) for six years.  His friends have owned their 1947 CJ-2A and 1949 CJ-3A for about 25 years.  Thanks for sharing David.

Builds — Jim’s 1949 CJ-3A (Potentially for sale now)

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Except for those funky turn signals on the front grille, this is a great looking stock jeep.  Jim’s getting this running again and then will decide whether to sell it to someone who will love it.  Otherwise, he’ll keep it and decide what to do with it.

“I pulled this CJ3A (vin 3J28941) out of a little mining town called Silverton. Its bone stock, 6 volt and appears to have never been touched, never had a roll bar, has a rare dealer installed all aluminum hardtop and doors.  A little update on this rig:  I  rebuilt the carb, flushed the tank, blew the lines, new fuel pump etc and we got it started! Not bad for not being run for 10 years!  Motor sounds excellent, no smoke, oil pressure is 60 psi! Now for a complete brake overhaul and then it will be driven for the first time in more 10 years! Anybody want to buy a rare all aluminum hardtop and doors?”

1950s CJ-3A Elkins, NH ebay (what a sales job)

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

1950s_cj3a_nhThe sale job on this just cracked me up.

  • Claim #1:  Good Condition for it’s age and a Rareity
  • Claim #2:  Jeep not running, but just some stuck valves; not a big deal to fix
  • Claim #3:  Needs floor panels, but the frame is very solid
  • Disclaimer #1:  I am not an expert on this

Ergo, why does the seller make the above claims if not an expert?  I mean, I know why;  it’s just funny to me.

1952 CJ-3A Decatur, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,000

I don’t think the pictures quite do this justice.  Newer tires would help and finishing the restoration (parking lights for example) would help this CJ-3A.

“Massive restoration. This is the original body which has been removed from the frame, restored with zinc alloy body fill then zinc coated to prevent future rusting. Newly painted a vibrant pearl orange. The interior is done in rugged black bedliner. All seats reupholstered in a nice black vinyl. Includes the rare back seat. Black Besttop Soft Top included. New wiring harness. Warn Winch included. Two sets of wheels. One set of matching orange wheels with radials and one set of black wheels with NDT non-directional tires (old style military). Well documented restoration.  See my ad on autotrader for larger pictures”

1953_cj3a_westhillsThis is a nice looking CJ-3A.

“Willys is in good shape with great running motor. Motor has Willys stamp on head, however I’m not sure if it is the original.  Has an aftermarket carb, I do have original for new owner to install. Drives great and idles fine. Shifts smooth through all gears. Good power for a small flat four. Electrical has been converted to 12 volt by a past owner. Everything seems original except for the hood. I think that is an aftermarket steel hood with the Willys logo painted on. Small leak coming from  front seal on the diff. Nothing major. No other leaks or issues…..”

Builds — Oklahoma Green and One Bad Apple

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3A, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

I was searching for an image of original CJ-3A gauges when i stumbled upon this article.  Both of these are well modified, good looking road and trail jeeps.  One of the more interesting features of the ‘Oklahoma Green’ Jeep is the number of gauges that are installed.  One Bad Apple certainly has an usual paint job.

Here’s 2 excerpts from an Off Road Adventures Article; each one discuss a little bit about each jeep:

oklahoma_greenOklahoma Green: “… Below the CJ3A Willys’ windshield is a dashboard that would be more than adequate in a J3 Super Cub airplane of the same vintage. The aircraft-like dash sports a full compliment of gauges: fuel, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp, vacuum, and air pressure gauges along with a voltmeter, hourmeter, and altimeter by Hobbs. A Lev-O-Gauge rounds out the impressive array. Lights and buzzers backup the critical gages. From the dash, Ken can switch on the fuel pump, fast idle solenoid, headlights, heater, and winch. Indicator lights report the status of 4WD, seat belts, ARB, emergency brake, and air compressor…. ”

one_bad_appleOne Bad Apple: “… The frame was lengthened 6-inches to incorporate a GM 4.3 V6 CMFI 195 hp at 4500 rpm engine with K&N Air Cleaner and Painless Wiring, a GM 700R4 with a manual shift kit, and a Dana 300 transfer case with CV driveshaft. With 4.88 gears, the final crawl ratio is 80:1. The front axle is a Dana 30 with an ARB Air Locker and disk brakes. The rear axle is a Dana 44 with a Detroit Locker. Four-inch lift springs, an off-road track bar, and Rancho 5000 Shocks control 33×12.50 BFG Mud Terrain T/As …..”

1952 CJ-3A Windsor, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $3200.

This jeep likely deserves a better description.  I suspect that along with tilt steering and a nice roll cage, this CJ-3A probably has a variety of other good mods.  On the downside, the large diamond plating suggests that the sides may not be in the best shape (not sure why you’d put such large pieces on the sides except for that reason).”
