1958 CJ-3B Soda Springs, Id eBay

UPDATE:  This has been relisted on eBay

It looks like it is sporting some newer springs with some lift, but otherwise is pretty stock.  Appears in very good shape as does the trailer.

“This Jeep is in excellent condition! I was going to use this for mountain fun, but decided it was in to good of shape because it is vintage.  It runs great and I have had no problems with it. Does leak a little oil. Very quiet and clean! There is a scratch in the paint on the hood.

Tires are in excellent condition and the spare is new.  ”

Builds — Vivek’s CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Features

Vivek purchased a 1967 CJ-3B right hand drive Mahindra at the end of 2004.  According to his early blog notes, the jeep barely started, was missing the front drive line, and generally needed a lot of work.  When he finally did pick it up, on the way back it stalled, requiring the help of some local builders to move it out of the way of a bus.  Fast forward several years later and you can see Vivek and his CJ-3B pictured on the right.

Among Vivek’s challenges was his effort to get the papers.  Not only were the papers absent, but apparently the owner wanted to sell the jeep, but the owner’s son did not.  It took a few weeks before Vivek could get the original papers, insisting the owner drop the price slightly further for all the trouble the owner caused him.  You can read about the purchase here.

Learn more about Vivek’s recent engine rebuild, the jeep club he belongs to, and some recent jeeping pictures. Also, check out Vivek’s friend UBS and his one-of-a-kind jeep collection.

Vivek’s working for the next few months in Milipitas, California.  When he heads back in December, he hopes to take back a lift kit with him.  If anyone has any suggestions, comment below.

1953 CJ-3B Durango, Co **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE: SOLD, but not picked up yet …

I think there is lots of life left in this CJ-3B, as much of it looks straight and in good condition. However, I would like a closer look at the front bumper area, as that bumper angles a little bit too much.

“I’m selling this 1953 Willys Jeep CJ3B for a friend and neighbor of mine. He’s drove it for as is for a long time. In December last year he pulled the stock T90 transmission to rebuild it as it sometimes popped out of third gear when accelerating. A huge storm hit, dumping so much snow it crushed his garage barely missing the Jeep. Would be a very good, inexpensive project for the right person. I will try to be as detailed and candid as possible but feel free to ask questions and I will answer as quickly as I can. Has a 289 Ford small block under the hood, add a battery, antifreeze and its a runner again. Has been converted to Saginaw steering, with column, box etc. steers easy. Stock running gear behind the engine, T90, spicer 18, stock axles etc. Still has good brakes, has only been sitting since Christmas rather than years in a back field like so many out there…”

1953 CJ-3A Chico, Ca $1750 OBO

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

There are three pictures of this jeep.  Two I *think* are before it was torn down and the third looks like it is an in-progress rebuild.  In the third picture, shown to the right, you'll note newer rims and how the body is sitting higher than before (could be a new SOA mod or different springs).

1964 CJ-3B Scotts Valley, Ca $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

I love Scotts Valley .. I worked out of the old Borland Building for 3 years.  There are few better places in the US to work than the old Borland Building (now the Enterprise Technology Center).  As for the jeep, it's priced a bit high for a non-running CJ with significant rust.

"All original 1964 Willys CJ-3B (original matching serial number engine and chassis with number plate. Original body color was Spruce Green, now is painted a light blue color. Runs fine, but smokes a little (engine should be rebuilt eventually). Needs some minor work to get running again (battery recharged, gas lines and gas tank drained). Hood looks like it has been replaced at some point. Aftermarket heater installed in front passenger side. Rear bench seat is missing. CD ignition system installed."

1963 CJ-3B Woodland Park, Co $2200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

I think this is a good price.  It looks like it has a warn winch, good tires and a good top.  With the overdrive, you've got $1000 worth of value right there.

"1963 Willys CJ3B jeep V8 with overdrive 31 inch mud tires. Lots of extras. Call Andy 432-7869."

1954 CJ-3B Tacoma, Wa $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE: This was for sale for the same price in July, but the jeep was brown (as you can see in the pic on the right). Now the jeep is gray as seen in the left.

Given that the body is a fiberglass, which is very hard to find for CJ-3Bs (actually impossible is a better word), I'm positive this was produced in the 80s or early 90s.  Looks to be in great shape.

"This 1954 3-B Highhood powered by a Chev 383 stroker V-8 and 4-Speed transmission.  warn 12,000 lb winch.  36×14.50×16.5 swampers. dana 44 front axle. dana 18 transfercase.  Fiberglass Body …."

1953 CJ-3B **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

(SEE COMMENTS)  It appears a great deal of meticulous work has gone into this ‘restoration’ and it looks nice.  However, this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.  If you are trying to make jeep that’s just come off the battlefield of WWII and you are going to invest the time and energy, why not do this with an earlier model such as an MB (that really did come off the battlefield) or it’s closest cousin the CJ-2A?

“98K original miles, 6 volt, all stock and original, new engine (it purrs) with maybe 5K on it, rebuilt transmission, rebuilt brakes, fresh upholstery on the original seats, a few dents and dings. Its turn key, needs nothing, starts, runs and drives excellent for a near 60 year old Jeep. Built to look like it just rolled off the battlefield in WWII, extended bed, Flat military green paint,loaded with ammo boxes, vintage tools, military surplus stuff, canvas etc.”

1953 CJ-3B Newport, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1750.   I think this is a good deal.

This ad caught my interest because I’d never heard of Newport, Washington.  Newport is located north of Spokane and west of Sand Point, Idaho.  Looks like a beautiful place.

The jeep is interesting too.  The drive train has been modernized and the jeep outfitted with a modern cage. The engine probably has some extra spunk for a v-6, but bored 60 over suggests that it might not have a ton of life left.

“1953, Complete running gear out of 1968 Jeepster Commando, 3:73 gears, model 27 up front has a 44 in the back, model 18 transfer case,turbo 400 with shift kit, 225 V6 punched over 40 headers and turbo mufflers, aluminum high rise with 4 barrel carb, saginaw power steering, 2 inch lift kit, we have a few spare parts that go with it. Hasn’t been started in three or for years. missing coil and ballast resister. Has a nice full cage. Front and rear seats out of CJ-7”
