“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.

“1964 Willy’s Cj3b
Before you think that’s to much… This classic Jeep has some very good features:
-very well installed Buick odd-fire v6. Runs excellent. NO damage to firewall. Amazing power.
-full lift kid
-rebuilt transmission
-11” brakes (will fling your dentures if not careful)
-excellent classic Warn winch with original Warn controls inside cab
There is a bit of rust in passenger floor but nothing not easily unrepairable. Otherwise good body.
-new radiator and battery
-will include traditional hardtop

You could easily drive her home (but I’d wear a coat!) Tires on the Jeep are negotiable. Have an essentially new Overdrive setup that could be included. Read Less”

“Mitsubishi J3 Diesel RHD Military Jeep.

License built by Mitsubishi. 4 Cylinder diesel from the factory. Built for the Japanese army (and others) from the 1950’s until the late 1990’s.

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it……. Very cool and unique Jeep.”

“1953 Willy’s CJ3B Jeep I have owned this almost a year. The previous owner completely rebuilt the original 4 cylinder engine. It has 685 miles on it since rebuilt engine. He also put a new lift, suspension, bearings, wheels,tires,etc. on this Jeep. Since I have had it I had it raptor lined black on the inside and red on the outside. I also had the roll bar installed, custom front bumper made with the light bar, a small winch installed, new front seats, and a custom third backseat installed. The body is in good as shape S you can expect for a 53 but with the liner on it should last forever now. It slipped out of 2nd gear as most so without a new kit installed.. however I have the new $300 kit just haven’t installed it yet. Runs and drives great. The only reason I’m parting with it is because I just purchased two CJ’s. No trades and clear Missouri title in hand.”
