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.”

1964 CJ-3B Saratoga Springs, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Gerald pointed out that this appears to be a Right Hand Drive CJ-3b.  I agree it looks that way.  On closer inspection, as Felix noted, the Willys was backwards.  Some of these pics are flipped and some aren’t, though who knows why ..

This jeep has been sitting for 20 years, but it looks more like it has been sinking for 20 years.

1964 Willy’s Jeep. Has not been operated since 1990. In fair shape. A Great Restoration Project or for Parts. I can email any interested party additional pictures. Comes with the snow plow attached. We cannot provide the title (it has been lost), but do have a New York State Registration document for this vehicle. Additionally, we cannot provide a key to the ignition. This car is sold as is. It must be picked up or buyer must arrange pickup. Feel free to email me with any questions.”

A “New” CJ-3B from ICON


UPDATE: ICON is no longer selling these jeeps. They were priced at $45,000

Jump over to the CJ-3B Page and check out the latest on the new ICON CJ-3B, the first of several (or many?) new CJ-3Bs that will roll of the ICON plant from Van Nuys, CA.  Derek covers this vehicle very thoroughly.  It appears they’ve built a good rig.  The engine is an interesting choice, likely providing debate for some time.   Make sure to check out the gauge panel; it’s very different!

You can also see many pictures of an early prototype here from the CJ-3B Page.

Builds: Jim finds a nice old CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3B • TAGS: .

Jim, take it away and thanks for sharing!

So I got a call today, woman says she has a1953 plow jeep she wants to get rid of. She said her deceased father, a mechanic, owned it for more than 40 years and used it to plow his business etc. When I hear plow jeep, Im thinking piece of rusty crap thats been worked to death etc. I have a driveway thats 1/3 of a mile long and I will need a plow this winter so I went to take a look.

Man, was I shocked, a completely (except orange paint) original 1953 CJ3B, 6 volt, uncut, runs great, has brakes, chains on all four studded tires, nice original seats, 15″ stock wheels, no rust to speak of, super straight, soft top frame with a tarp over it, still has the snap in carpet kit. Some one had obviously loved it for many, many years. Under that layer of dust is a really nice jeep and after a long heart to heart talk, its now mine for very little money!

I brought it home and tested it out.  Everything works great, brakes, heater etc but there is a weird knocking on the engine, seems to come go at time so Im thinking someone dropped a bolt or something into the carb and it is knocking on top of a piston. I will know for sure when I pull the head in a few days but overall it is in excellent condition. I couldnt tell you the last time I bought a flat fender with a full on complete snap in carpet kit, very cool!
