1953 CJ-3B Portland, Or $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_portland2UPDATE:  Pictures have been provided.  It looks like the body is a replacement body.  The outside looks great.

This is a bit much for a non-runner.

“This ol’ Jeep is a rare one. I bought it from a collector in Salem Oregon. It was recently brought to Portland.  The rear pto is a great conversation peice and was opporational when the motor was in the Jeep. This Jeep has a clear title and would make a great next project. The 283 Chev motor is removed and in need  of a rebuild and the seat frames and cushions need to be replaced. I’ve listed details that are included below…..”

1964 ‘Army’ CJ-3B San Diego, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, M-606 (military CJ-3B)

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2200.

The seller is calling this a ‘Army CJ-3B’.  The 1945 GPW in the picture to the left of the CJ-3B is also for sale.

“I have an original 1964 US Army CJ-3B for sale. The body is in almost completely rust-free condition with the exception of the rear quarter panels (as pictured), which are also somewhat bent. The front passenger fender and step are bent a little bit. The floor boards only have surface rust. The front bumper is off of an auxiliary power unit jeep and was put on by another person. The engine is more than likely toast because the valve cover was removed by someone and never put back on. I have another F-head engine that I will include which is in a little better shape, but the oil has turned to sludge and it will probably need to be completely rebuilt.”

1964 CJ-3B Denver, Co $2195

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1964_cj3b_denverBrian pointed this one out to me.  There’s a pic of the hudson steering as well.

“I’m posting my flatty for sale. Its a Jeep CJ3B. The condition its in is ‘rough’ but workable. It drives great; just needs a little tlc. Here’s the meat:  She’s been converted to a straight 6 232 engine, which made for some interesting modifications. Wild Bill was apparently the guy that did it, if that means anything to you. Its got a t-90 with factory overdrive and factory PTO with the winch. The winch has a broken foot, but the mechanism works fine. This jeep has a hudson steering conversion….”

1955 CJ-3B West Plains, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1955_cj3b_westplainsUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.

This look solid and pretty stock.

“Unrestored, original 26K miles, 1955 Willy’s CJ3B Jeep.  The original owner was a doctor who bought the jeep as a hunting rig in 1955. The second owner purchased it for the same purpose, hunting. He had his mechanic look it over prior to each season. 3-4 years ago he stopped hunting and parked it. As a precaution, I oiled the cylinders and it turned freely. I bought it intending to restore it, but find I do not have the time. I was told it needed brakes. It has 16″ military tires on it which are in good condition. Tow bar is included. I am asking 3,000.00 O.B.O. No e-mails.”

1953 Navy CJ-3B Amesville, Tn $3250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_amesvilleThe images are a bit tiny to tell much.  I’m not a big fan of the paint job, but other than that this might not be a bad price.

“1953 CJ3B Navy Jeep. Still has Navy ID and information tag on the dash. Jeep is in fantastic mechanical condition. It is currently titled & licensed and I drive it daily. Does not use oil or smoke. Motor and drive train work flawlessly except for 2nd gear. Like 75% of old jeeps, it pops out of 2nd gear when decellerating. Odometer only shows 2870 miles and it works, but I can not verify that those are the correct miles. Brakes stop it straight and fast. All turn signals and lights work. Has been converted to 12volts. Has 4 new military type non directional tires on 16″ stock rims. The spare is a newer 16″ rough tread on a split rim wheel. All guages work. Has lock out hubs & a tow bar. Call 740-448-2600 if you have any questions. Thank you.”

1953 CJ-3B Plymouth, MN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_plymouthUPDATE: Was $2995. **SOLD**

The seller lists this as a 1953 GB2.  I thought that was a mistake until I did a search and discovered that this probably means this jeep is part of the second round of serials numbers for CJ-3Bs.  In other words, it’s a pretty early CJ-3B.

“1953 Willys GB2. B style so room for new engine. 12 Volt System. Valve stuck in the original flat head. Tranny, lock outs, and diff good shape. Good wheels and tires. I don’t have time to rebuild. Great project. Licensed as collectable. $2,995 or BO.”

1956 CJ-3B Jefferson, Ga **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1956_cj3b_jeffersonUPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay

I’m pretty sure that’s not the original windshield.  It looks almost like a CJ-2A windshield.  Also, while most of the body appears in good shape, the rear interior is pretty rough.

“This is a 1956 Willys CJ3B Jeep that is in great shape for its age. Drives nice, sounds great and starts right up. This would make a great restore project for someone or a great off-road vehicle as it will climb anything in 4 wheel drive. Transmission works very well. It does need some work on the wiring and the windshield is not a perfect fit. There are a few scrapes on the paint but the body is in amazing shape for the year it is. Apparently, this vehicle resided in California for most of its life. The title is clear and has a NC title as it GA you do not need a title for a vehicle older than 62….”

1953 CJ-3B Austin, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_austinUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500

It appears someone got a good deal on a parts jeep or project.  This sold very quickly.

“The Good – 53 willys Jeep, late 60’s Olds V-6 motor – the motor and drivetrain seems tight and good. It is complete, was driven until 2000. Will need to be thoroughly checked out after being parked for so long. Rollbar is in good shape. Have the original owners Oregon Title, I got the vehicle from her son when I bought his house. The bad – no keys, the throttle pedal needs to be re-attached to floorboard, did I mention the brakes – need rebuild. Kids shot the windshield glass w/BB gun 2×3 times, tires are OLD, will probably need a distributor. It needs seats, the old seats are trashed. It has some cancer, but the diamond plate covers it well.”

This is nicely ‘restored’, but there is some customization.  The body is an aftermarket body and the builder added a few modern updates to the dash, including the radio.  It appears to have a nice PTO setup.
