“This is a running and driving project, with a Buick V6 and 3 speed. Will need the tail lights rewired and an alignment to make it road ready.

Recent professional carburetor rebuild, new tune up parts, and all new metal and rubber brake lines and proportioning valve, on an ATV Manufacturing 4 wheel disc brake conversion.

New shocks, steering stabilizer, and 33 x 12.50 x 15 Nitto Grapplers on New American racing wheels.

Pictured are new and used parts to update the Jeep, new ATV overdrive and power steering conversions, seat belts, used Weiand intake and Holley carburetor, new headers, power steering pump. brake booster, etc.

The rear axle is a Dana 44, regeared with posi unit to 4.88 ratio. Gears, posi unit, and bearing kit are included to do the front axle.

Not pictured is the front hoop, tubes, and plates to complete the front roll cage.

The Bestop top and doors is good, two areas pictured could use repair.

The transmissions are a Borg Warner Super T-10 with shifter and Advance adaptor, and another T-10 for parts.

The paint is fair to good, with areas like the factory seam below the door openings where it looks like poor prep or someone trying to disguise the factory seams there. Frame and front sheet metal are excellent, no rust or rot. The tub front floors have been patched at some point in it’s life.

Available most days and evenings to show.”

1962 CJ-3B Smithfield, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200. 

“1962 Willys CJ3B Jeep equipped with an early edition Fisher Snowplow. The plow tag reads “CAMDEN, Maine” rather than “Rockland, Maine” . This complete Jeep I used many years ago to plow, has sat neglected in my storage lot as a parts backup for my other CJ3B which recently sold. No parts were removed, but has not been started in 5 years. The body has much rust, the motor ran and drivetrain worked OK. NO BRAKES!! A very hard-to-find Jeep HY-LO hydraulic pump is used to lift the plow. If you are looking for a complete, very stock, high hood CJ3B, bring a trailer and winch, I need it gone. I can deliver, finance, maybe partial trade Willys, Aero, Mercury, Power King, Car Trailer, Hunting Item, or Try Me. Email for details or phone contact.”
