1952 CJ-3A Richland, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7700.

“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”
