https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/184099589344882/

1961-cj3b-upperco

“Frame off restoration. Has been meticulously taken apart sandblasted/cleaned painted and rebuilt to be kept original. A lot of new parts, and extra parts. I have tons of photos from start to finish.

It took two years to restore, and around $15,000 in parts and supplies. Asking $15,000 willing to negotiate. Note: The carb. will need to be tuned, and when I restored it I left the brakes alone all except the master cylinder which I replaced. My brakes have no pressure now so I have a leak somewhere.

I was going to buy the whole brake line kit and replace the whole kit and kabootal but I havent yet. Does come with extra parts that are original to the vehicle like Willys inscribed hood and tailgate, carburetor, fuel pump, transmission, transfer case, shift tower, heater, and other odds and ends. You can spend about the same on an ATV, or a UTV, but they will depreciate, and you can’t drive them on the road leagally. So why not own a piece of history”
