Year? CJ-3B Zuzax, NM $3000


Could be a good price, if it still runs.


“Found myself in possession of this great little jeep when my sister passed away and have kept it in a barn since then. Living in an arid climate it has held up well. Runs good but hasn’t been started in a couple of years. The old balloon tires still hold air! Selling for just $3,000.00 although since I’m not sure exactly what I have it might be worth more, Much more. Photos aren’t the best, will get more info for interested buyers.”

Year? Fiberglass 3B Body on Chassis Lincoln, NE $1000


This looks to be a good price. It has a WWII engine (or at least head) and a rare JC Whitney (uncut?) 3B body.


“I have a 1946 Willys CJ2A jeep running gear with an after market fiber glass body made by JC Whitney. The serial number for this jeep is 31612 in case you want to research the model. The engine is a 4 cylinder flat head and the transmission is a manual. The engine was gone through and was honed and align bored but never started. This is a project with lots of potential. I have a good title, would like $1000 or best offer.”

1954 CJ-3B San Diego, CA $2500


This appears to have one of the late model Worman Jee-Cabs. Not amnion these around. The rear of the top looks custom to me.


“1954 Willys CJ3B. Great project. Extremely solid and straight. Has arctic hardtop. Engine and seats are missing but everything thing else is there. Find another 134 “F” head or perfect for a v6 or V8 conversion. Last driven in 1976. Stored under a carport for a majority of the time since then. It will be hard to find a better CJ3B to restore than this one. Has not been abused or molested like a most. If the ad is up it’s for sale. No trades too many projects already.”

1953 CJ-3B Chewelah, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000

“Selling my baby. It’s a stock 1953 Willys high hood. My daily driver for 5 months out of the year. A true survivor. The only thing that isn’t stock is the hubs. Original pto winch, engine, hard top, factory heater, 6 volt system, and many extra parts including engine block and tranny.
Runs and drives excellent and a ton of fun. This jeep is completely unmolested. You won’t find another like this and if you do it would cost a lot more than $5,500. It is also licensed as a collector (no more tab fees) Pictured with a period trailer that i will sell with the jeep for an additional $500. Price is firm. I will not negotiate at this great of a price. More pictures to come soon..”

1953 CJ-3B Westminster, CA $5000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000.

(02/10/2018) This one has an unusual color scheme. Must have been used for some type of advertising. Sell incorrectly states that this is the “civilian version of the M38 U.S. Army Jeep”?


“Fun to drive 1953 CJ-3B. The is the civilian version of the M38 U.S. Army Jeep. This jeep has a new front disc brake conversion, so it stops great. New wheels and mud tires. New carburetor and electronic ignition for reliability. Seats have new covers and the vehicle has been vinyl wrapped, so the company’s logo can easily be removed. The electrical system has been upgraded from 6 volts to 12 volts. New headlamps and headlamp switch, and dash light. 3 speed manual transmission and transfer case. The F-134 engine has had the valves recently adjusted. The roll cage and front seat belts are there for safety. If you want a weekend cruiser, this is your vehicle. The original wheels and brakes are available. However, the original wheels will not fit over the disc brakes. Asking $6,800 based on $7,000 on Hagerty value of “Good”.
