1953 CJ-3B Phoenix, AZ No Price


Period correct restoration? It’s labeled as a “Jeep Willys CJ-2A”, but the seller also notes it has a cj3b 4-134.

“1943 Willy’s Jeep ( Ford ) . 327 Chevy V8, T-90 transmission , Dana 18 transfer case 29 tooth, power steering.33 x 12.5 Goodyear Mud tires. I bought this a few years back not running as a tinker project. I have had a lot of fun getting it running and fixing it up. I have been using it as a grocery getter around town and enjoyed the heck out of it. Like any Willy’s of it’s age it is not perfect but I have replaced quite a few things so you should be able to turn the key and enjoy.

Parts I have replaced (New) – power steering box, tie rod ends, steering column, new drum brakes, calipers and master cylinder , radiator , electric fan, front seats with 4 point harness, electric fuel pump, MSD ignition , LED head and tail lights, carburetor (3 years old), jerry can, one new fuel tank with sending unit.exhaust pipe and muffle replaced back from headers.

1952? CJ-3B Anacortes, WA $12,000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,000

(07/10/2018) I’m wondering if the rear of the body was repaired using an MB replacement panel? I can’t remember seeing any replacement 3B tubs with a solid back.

1964 CJ-3B Marissa, IL $2100


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2100.

This has a ventilating windshield. Seller believes this to be an M606, but to me this looks like a standard issue 3B, but I’d love to be proved wrong. It does appear to have a place on the dash with four holes where a gov data plate could have been.


1964-cj3b-il1 1964-cj3b-il2 1964-cj3b-il3 1964-cj3b-il4

“This is a 1964 Military Jeep for sale that is like a M606.
The army and the navy were the only ones to use these jeeps, and they were intended for more mundane duties around bases and such.
It does have the original military wheels and most of the original hard top (the side and rear doors are missing).
The engine is stuck, and the radiator is long gone (scrappers stole it along with the doors years ago).
I have the original body tags along with the reproduction brass military tag.

No title, but will provide a bill of sale.

Accepting any reasonable offer. I would like to see it go to someone who knows what it is versus it becoming a start for a crawler or mud buggy.”

1959 CJ-3B and 2 Trailers Austin, TX $7500


This includes a dolly trailer and Bantam TC3 trailer.


1959-cj3b-trailers-austin-tx2 1959-cj3b-trailers-austin-tx3 1959-cj3b-trailers-austin-tx4

“1959 Jeep CJ3B, 1947 Bantam TC3 trailer and JEEP dolly to haul any flat fender JEEP. 3B has a rebuilt F134 Hurricane engine and runs pretty good. Transmission and transfer case were rebuilt at the same time and were all installed almost 4 years ago. Needs a carb rebuild since it has been sitting. Has a Warn Overdrive installed which gives a 30% reduction in engine speed and doubles the number of gears you have.

All of the work that I have done to it was completed a little over 3 years ago. Complete braking system, except hard lines, was done. BF Goodrich All-Terrains were installed. All seats redone. Duraliner bed liner rolled into the tub. Rattle can paint job in desert tan. Bluetooth stereo.

Jeep is overall in good shape. There are some rust holes and a few places underneath where someone welded on some random plate for repairs. 1947 Bantam is in pretty good shape. Has some rust spots in the tub. Tows great, tires are good and lights work.

Jeep Dolly is made specifically for hauling flat fender Jeeps. Balanced good and has a trailer brake.

Have titles for all. $7,500 cash gets everything and some miscellaneous parts that I have as well.”
