1953 CJ-3B Trout Run, PA $1800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

This runs and has a Kelly hardtop.

https://www.facebook.com/commerce/listing/746192422638585

“Up for sale is my 1953 Willys Cj3B Jeep. This jeep is a project and would make a nice project for someone over the winter. The jeep runs and drives but needs brake work and a tune up and some electrical stuff with the lights sorted out. It hasn’t ran in a few months, but I have no doubt it will start and I’ll be putting a battery in it tomorrow and starting it. The brakes stop the jeep but not well. The body is rough. It’s been patched over and re-patched in some places. It has fiberglass front fenders. New shocks on the front. I do have new led tail lights for it, an orginal heater, and an electronic ignition module for the distributer that will be included. The top needs a little welding work. Tires are dry rotted bad and leak. A set of steel rims are included as well. I have a clean title in my name. Asking $1800 for this classic… who needs a side by side when you can have this?! Work on it over the winter and have a fun jeep to cruise in when it’s spring time. Sold as is.”

“Up for auction is this 1961 Willys CJ3B Jeep.

This Jeep came from an elderly gentleman up in Montana and it was a hunting Jeep that was used by him on his ranch in Montana. This jeep was used for hunting Deer and coyotes on a regular basis.

Jeep Was sitting when we found it and it was stored inside of a tractor shed. We loaded this jeep up in the middle of a blizzard after driving 2 hours down a gravel road and then made the long trek home with her. We flushed out the fuel system, added new fuel lines, Coolant, and a fresh battery. We also did some adjustments to the timing and the points as well as the electrical under the dash to get it working. The jeep starts really great and the throttle and choke work as intended.

“This cj3b was recently converted to fuel injection (Hamilton system) and runs like a top (just doesn’t stop to well at the moment). This conversion was new gas tank, new in-tank pump, new fuel lines, throttle body fuel injection, ECM, Omix electronic distributor modified for full timing control, new painless wiring harness. This thing starts easy, idles well, and purrs.

Other recent upgrades. Front disc brakes – all new. All new tie rod ends, lots and lots of holes plugged, worst of the rust and damage repaired. New bumper. All new gauges. Brand new Patagonia Milestars.

Not working – I pulled the master cylinder and have a new double circuit master cylinder here and ready to go in. If I get time I will install it. But, right now it only has the hand brake.

It needs some more body work, but once the brake are done, this is a driver.”
