“One day in 2013, I was talking with a buddy and he asked if I was interested in a Willys Jeep and since I was thinking about a “project” car, I said yes. Well, I got this little gem on a farm in the Hood River Valley! I call it Taz Willy and he has won several trophies at car shows! But, as happens with time, I have purchased a travel trailer and will be doing more traveling so I decided to give someone else the opportunity to have fun with Taz.

Even though he was used in the orchard as a spraying machine, and stored for quite a while, he was in good shape and all the dried mud on his underside protected him from rusting! I stripped him down to his frame and painted it with frame paint to continue his protection.

The engine has been rebuilt by Portland Engine Rebuild using the original f-head engine block. It is the 4 cylinder stock engine. Engine has 925 miles – all road miles.

The transmission is the original– 3-speed with compound low. This required only replacement of fluid. I works good.

The body seems in pretty good shape, though it likely has had some work and newer paint.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/376508033735234/

“1953 cj3b. First year for the high hood Jeeps. This is a project. Hood has some dents, and floor pans need patched. Tub has minimal rust, but is in very nice condition for age. You can still see the original green paint under the red. Nice pair of original seat frames. I have two f-head engines for it. The original engine is stuck, and the second engine turns over. Transmission is decent, but should be gone through. Frame is in perfect condition. I do not have a windshield frame, or tailgate for it. Clean title. Would be perfect candidate for restoration. $1500”

It’s probably seized up I haven’t touched it in years but it shouldn’t take much to get her up and running. the body was brand-new ship to me from the Philippines. It has a 4in lift and I think it’s run in 32 or 33 inch tires. I really hate to see it go but could use the money for other projects.
