1960 CJ-3B Grafton, MA $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

This has an odd dash setup. I **think** someone has taken a replacement tub and added a custom taller cowl over the original cowl to turn it into a 3Bish tub.

1961 CJ-3B Hartland, VT $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

Listed as a 1961, the lack of a stamped hood got me thinking. Checking the serial number revealed this is actually a mid-1963 CJ-3B, so the non-stamped hood could very well be original. No description provided.

“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.

“Early style Willys Jeep CJ3B with 27,000 miles. No title. Tub is in good shape for being original and unrestored. The only rust I can find is under the toolbox which is shown in the pics. Other hat channels appear to be in solid condition. Fender hat channels look good as well. Engine cranks over with a jumper pack. Cylinder #2 appears to have a stuck valve from sitting for so long. Radiator is from an IH of sorts. Transmission shifts in all gears. Tcase shifts in all ranges. Has a new steering wheel.”

“1953 cj3b. First year for the high hood Jeeps. This is a project. Hood has some dents, and floor pans need patched. Tub has minimal rust, but is in very nice condition for age. You can still see the original green paint under the red. Nice pair of original seat frames. I have two f-head engines for it. The original engine is stuck, and the second engine turns over. Transmission is decent, but should be gone through. Frame is in perfect condition. I do not have a windshield frame, or tailgate for it. Clean title. Would be perfect candidate for restoration. $1500”
