offroad_adventures_workingjeepsI’m not familiar with the “Offroad Adventures” publication.  Instead, as usual, I stumbled upon it while looking for something else.  It’s a compact 2 pages article with a variety of pics of cjs accompanied by different hydraulic implements.  I’m not a big fan of the myvirtualpaper’s interface, but the pics are still cool.

Reader’s Builds — Jeff’s Jewel’s Flat Fender

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

After seeing all the interest in stainless on the website, Jeff has kindly provided us with a couple of looks at his all Jewels Flattie.  It’s not just the stainless that makes this look nice, but also the accents, such as the execution of the rear bumper design. With a full cage on the inside and a winch, this jeep is quite capable of playing in the sand, the trail or wherever he wants to take it.

Jeff notes below:

“This is my Semi stainless / galvanized jewels body kit mounted on a 1952 cj3a chassis. Currently powered by a chev 153 4cyl. I also own another complete kit that I have been collecting for the last 15 years. It appears there is a lot of interest in these stainless jeeps these days.”

1951_cj3a_sultanI’m not much of a fan of the roll bar, but otherwise this looks like a good CJ-3A with a few extra features.

Year? CJ-3A Hayward, CA **SOLD**

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

cj3a_haywardUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000

I thought this might be a DJ-3A.  Instead, I think someone just hacked the sides of the body out on both the passenger and driver’s side.

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

UPDATE: this nice flattie is still available.

The Chevy 181 appears to be a 3.0 Liter Marine engine, which is likely a nice 4cyl for the jeep.  This jeep is likely worth a closer look.

1950 CJ-3A Flagstaff, Az $2500

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

1950_cj3a_flagstaffNot to make fun of the paint job, but I really thought something was creating shadows over the jeep.  Then, I looked at an interior pic and saw it had a strange camo paint job.  I thought, ‘wait, that’s not on the outside of the jeep’.  But, I was wrong, it is indeed some type of camo on the outside.

“1950 Willys Needs Title 4X4.  Priced to sell at $2500 or best offer.  I’ve had this for over a year… received it in a trade. New 327 engine. 205 Trasfer case. Dana 44.

Reader Builds — Troy’s nicely modified CJ-3A & race jeep

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

troy_shipman_racejeep1UPDATE:  Troy sent along a couple pics of his race jeep also.  There’s one to the right and one down below.

Below is Troy’s street and trail CJ-3A.  It’s been modified in a variety of ways, including a Dana 60 in the back, a Dana 44 in the front and lockers all around.  Troy buys and sells stainless steel in the Northwest and is trying to decide whether to start adding more stainless steel or not to this jeep.  His biggest concern is if he starts dressing it up too nice, he’ll be too afraid to bring it out to the trails.  If this jeep does start growing stainless steel fenders, I doubt he’ll suffer too much as  Troy will still have an opportunity to get dirty playing in his flat fender racing jeep that he calls “Twisted”.

Also, if you seek any stainless steel parts for your CJ-3A or CJ-3B, Troy assures me he can get them for you.  You can contact him at jeepfrk50@comcast.net

1953 CJ-3A Arlington, Wa **Sold**

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

1953_cj3a_arlingtonUPDATE:  The buyer of the jeep reported that these were Jewels fenders with the stickers still on them.

Here’s the deal for today.  The stainless steel fenders (Jewels?) and warn overdrive may be worth $1700 alone.  Also interesting, this might be a DJ-3A body, as I don’t see a tailgate; however, this might also just be some kind of mod as well.

“1953 Willy’s Jeep-work in progress- newer Ford 289, Warn overdrive, Dana 35 front/Dana 44 rear, Willy’s stamped hood, stainless fenders/grill, diamond plating in back of jeep, soft top with doors, second gas tank,and wiring harness. 1,700.”

1951_cj3a_omahaThis CJ-3A appears to be in pretty good shape.  I’m not a huge fan of the big bumpers, but not too bad otherwise.

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

1952_cj3a_pennvalleyThe paint job makes it difficult to tell, but it looks like the side panel on the driver’s side is a bit rough (rust?) at the bottom edge.  The top sure fits funkily …

1949 CJ-3A Mountain Grove, Mo **SOLD**

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

1949_cj3a_mountaingroveUPDATE:  This sold for $4,995 on 01/11/2009 on eBay.

This CJ-3A only reached a high bid of $3,550 during the last auction attempt. I was a little surprised by that, but it’s also not been restored to ‘original specs’.  It looks nice and is back on the auction block.

“1949 CJ3A in extremely good condition.  It has be in body off restoration for 13 years striped to the frame.  It had the usual rust in the floor pans, new steel was welded in these areas. Also new under body rails were welded in. The frame was in good shape and the floor and the rear fender well are in good shape.  After the body tub was completed and before installed on the frame it was completely undercoated with a rubbery undercoat. Both front and rear axles were completely disassembled and rebuilt….”
