1959 CJ-3B Merriam, Mo $2500


1959_cj3b_miriamUPDATE:  Price dropped to $2500

(10/16/09) I suspect this is a little rougher than the seller suggests.  I’m not sure if it runs or not.

“All original ,4wheel drive, only thing it needs mechanically is some engine wiring. Would be a nice project for anyone who’s into antiques or 4 wheel drives. Makes a great off-road jeep! Asking $2500 obo, hate to sell it, but we’re moving and can’t take it with us. Might also be willing to trade for dependable 4door car or extended cab truck. Call 913-269-9801 -Jason”

1955 CJ-3B Erie, Pa $450


It looks like there is $450 worth of parts on this jeep.  It even runs!

“1955 Willys Jeep project or for parts – it has a sears roebuck upper body, 4 cylinder standard, does run but needs work.  $450 or close offer, must be sold by Sunday 4/11. It’s not nice but it’s 55 years old and parts are getting harder to find. I hate to cut it up for scrap metal but I need it gone. Comes with bill of sale only.”

1957 CJ-3B Gloucester, VA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000

ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK THE VIN … THIS WAS A FUN ONE: The seller noted on ebay that this is a ’57, but it has the older, pre’57 dash.  That raised a flag.  So, I looked closely at the VIN:  The first set of numbers are 55268 instead of 453 GB2. That VIN actually belongs to a 1956 Pickup Truck 6 cyl (226 ci) with 4wd with a serial number of 33836.  See this service bulletin for the details.

“Very original Willys CJ3B. No body lift, original 4cyl engine, manual lockers on front, 3 speed trans. Color is Red, original upolstry in great shape and this has rear bench seat. Tool box under passenger seat. 4 good tires – spare is for decoration. Has AM/FM cassette and Jensen speakers under dash on firewall. Top is serviceable. No Bondo.”

1953 CJ-3B Sauk Rapids, MN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5900

(03/10/09) Here’s a great looking CJ-3B.  I’d like to see some more pics of it.

“Willys Jeep CJ-3B , Rebuilt Original 4 cylinder Drivetrain, Original 6 volt elec. System. Added 6 volt electric fuel pump. many new parts and new tires. It’s been in my family for over 40 years. 37,000 Miles, always kept indoors. My Mechanic says it needs to be driven more and I don’t have the time anymore for play. Email any questions you may have by replying or leave a phone number. I believe this is an ideal candidate for a total restoration to its original military appearance, which would at the least double it’s value, by ebay research.”

UPDATE:  Breatt reports this CJ-3B Sold.   I’ll keep this post around just to give people faith that there are still great deals out there!!

It was available for $1700.  It runs, it has on Overdrive, it is straight.  This won’t last the weekend.  It does have an L-head rather than an F-head though.  Kudos to Brett for spotting this one! If I had a trailer, I would have left tonight to go get this myself. Oh, this one’s painful ….

1955 CJ-3B Des Moines, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500

(10/21/09) Here’s a pretty stock CJ-3B.

“This old Willys was origjnally owned by the city of Templeton, IA. I bought it about a year ago from a farmer who used it just around the farm, mostly to give his kids and grand kids rides off road. It started and ran when I got it, but was not dependable, reliable or street legal. I’ve done a lot of work (documented) to this old Willys here in my shop to make it safe, reliable, dependable, legal and most of all fun. The 6 bolt system and all of the original wiring has been replaced with a complete 12 volt system with custom wiring throughout. It has dual tail lights with license light, park lights, turn signals with dash indicator and working self cancel, horn, 2 speed custom (CJ5 parts) wipers, 2 speed custom heater blower motor with defrost tube, interior lights and a 12 volt power receptacle under the dash for what ever ( I use it to plug in my phone). The original seats have been replaced with new cloth covered seat assemblies from Vanderhaag truck parts. The passenger seat has been adapted to fit the flip seat bracket to allow access to the floor mounted tool box. Seat belts are a set of dated Simpsons out of my old race car. The rear facing functional flip fold CJ5 back seat sits atop a custom built frame and has retractable seat belts for 2 out of an old K5 Blazer. The top is in excellent condition. I put it on new last year. The 4×4 works excellent. In LOW LOW this unit will go just about anywhere. I’ve had it off road in the mud, snow, dirt, sand, up and down hills and then right out onto the road and headed for home. There’s been alot more done to this old Willys, including rebuilt park brake, new fuel tank and sender, belt, hoses, wires, plugs, carb rebuilt, custom installed CJ5 roll bar, etc, etc, etc. It’s not beautiful.”

1953 CJ-3B Bend, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(11/17/09) Here’s a CJ-3B that looks in good shape, though the exterior has been painted with a bed liner.

“For sale is an excellent condition 1953 Cj3b.  I purchased the jeep in Kalispell, Montana in 2000.  Since then, it has made several moves around the country and finally wound up here in Bend, Oregon.  I kept the jeep in its original terrible condition for seven long years and would receive the half-hearted thumbs-up at stoplights.  Now it turns heads everywhere it goes.  The jeep has a bad history of turning a 10 minute trip to the store into a two hour discussion with an oldtimer who used to farm his property with this same model.  Everywhere you drive, expect to stop and talk.  We have even been pulled over by the state police, not because we were speeding (that’s impossible except for in school zones) but because he was curious to find out what was under the hood; having never seen the Willy’s high-hood before….”

1956 CJ-3B Jefferson, Ga **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $3900

(10/09/09) “Up for auction is this 1956 Willys CJ3B. This Jeep is in great shape with nearly no rust and mechanically sound. It does have its typically willys seal leaks, but very little. This Jeep was bought about a year ago and, have been working on it little by little to get it to where it is today. I run around town locally in it, take the kids around and use it as a great conversation piece at car shows. If I go to one next time it may win. I have gone as far as I want to go in the restore, it’s time for someone else look after this piece of American history.  This Jeep has many new parts and all steering, brakes, transmission, 4X4 and engine work very, very well. This jeep will only run at about 45 miles an hour, but this little one will climb anything. I am selling this Jeep locally and have the right to stop the auction at anytime. I accept cash, PayPal or check, but I will have to go to a local bank with you to verify funds. This Jeep does not have a title as it is not required in Georgia for older vehicles.”

1953 CJ-3B Sanford, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This looks like a great rebuild.

“This auction is for a 1953 Willys Jeep CJ3B. We were asked by a friend of ours if we could list it for him so here is the information that I got from the owner. The Willys has a new reproduction steel body. 4 CYL “F” head motor, 3 Speed Manual trans, high and low range 4 wheel drive. The vehicle has undergone a complete frame off restoration. The motor has been rebuilt, trans and transfer case gone through, front end, complete brake job, Interior, etc… There is only 310 miles on the vehicle since the restoration. He has a reciept folder totalling just over $9,000 in body and parts alone. This is not counting the labor at all. Everything appears to have been done quite nicely! Jeep runs and drives great as it should. He does not have a top but from what I understand, these are availble at a reasonable price. The only reason he is selling this is that he is starting a restoration on a original millitary Jeep and he is going to use the proceeds from this sale to help fund the project.”
