1953 CJ-3B Littleton, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_littletonUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000

The seller of this jeep claims it only has 4,051 miles.  If that’s true, then this might be a pretty good deal.  Maybe it’s just the lighting, but the back of the jeep looks like it’s a bit more faded then the rest.

“Mileage: 4051, Includes: Winch, Tow Bar, White Kayline Soft top, Extra Gas Tank, Set of on road & off road tires. Needs some work, great project vehicle. Everything is Original! Only 4051 miles! Let me know if you want more pictures!”

1964 CJ-3B San Diego, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, M-38

FINAL UPDATE:  Melanie has sold her Jeep.  Congratulations!

Melanie provided some interesting information she gleaned from the sale of her jeep.  Most notably, when comparing ebay, craigslist, and auto trader, Melanie felt like she got by far the most quality responses from the auto trader magazine.

She also reports:

“What I experienced while trying to sell the jeep may not be new to others, but was an eye opener for me!

I had one guy tell me that I had misrepresented the jeep and that I didn’t know what I was talking about.  He basically was trying to bully me into lowering my price.   I did a lot of research before I ran my ad to make sure that everything I stated was true and accurate.  Still, it was unpleasant being called a liar.

Another guy was a smooth/fast talker and very aggressively insisted that I had agreed in a previous phone conversation to sell him the jeep for way below my asking price.   While he was talking circles around me, I started thinking to myself “wow, this is what it’s like to be scammed!”  The conversation ended with me saying “uh, wait…” and him saying a check is in the mail *click*.  I returned his check via certified mail.

On a positive note, I’ve talked to a lot of great jeep enthusiasts from all over the United States.  The majority have been polite and pleasant to talk to.   The ad I ran in the Auto Trader Classics magazine generated a lot of serious inquiries.  It was much more productive than e-bay or craigslist. ”

Thanks for info Melanie!

UPDATE:  This CJ-3B sold for $8000 on Jan 17, 2009

Very nice CJ-3B.  Check out the pictures.

“This ’65 CJ is all 100% stock and is the last year for this model offered in the US.  It was replaced by the more popular CJ5.  Kaiser, after purchasing Willys, dropped the embossment letters in 1963, but I have purchased exact repos and installed on the Jeep.  To a real Jeeper, even a Kaiser, is a Willys. This Jeep underwent an extensive 2-year restoration in 2000-2002 in the Seattle area by a Jeep enthusiast, who has done quite a few.  It was originally towed over from Montana.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1960_cj3b_elkinThere’s some rust on the body, but this looks like it’s a very stock, quite complete CJ-3B.  It might make a great restore project.  Note the other flattie to the right in the pic.

“This is a Willys cj3b jeep that I bought with the intention of restoring. I do not have a title for this vehicle. I will give a bill of sale. I believe this jeep could be restored.
