“Rolling project. Most of the hard stuff is done.

Rust free tub, nice and straight. Some small damage on the passenger side (see photo). The frame is not boxed.

Strong 289. Cammed and stroked to 305. Holley TA-II carb. Dual Flowmasters.

Original 3-speed Transmission and D18 Xfer case.

I have a NP435 and Novak adapter kit to mate with a D20 transfer case. Rebuild kits for both, new 6 spline main shaft for the transmission, and new input gear for the transfer case. Everything is there to build it out and hook it up to the D44’s. The transmission was rebuilt for a 2wd, so it will need to be redone to mate with the transfer case.

Frame horns extended and shackles reversed. Saginaw steering already swapped in.

EZ Wire 12 fuse mini kit. (I don’t think they offer this kit anymore). The wiring is not finished, but the engine wiring is roughed in and it will run. New alternator and relay, fusible link etc…

“Nice little cj2a. Have been working on it but now priorities have changed. New water pump, break reservoir, points, plugs, rotor and cap and spark plug wires. Needs to hook a new fuel line from tank to fuel pump ( which also need replaced. the pump.). motor starts right up when you pour some gas into the carburetor. Great project if you want to restore or clean up and use as is. Mostly just surface rust. Only thru rust I’ve seen is in floorboard on passenger side, which has been plated under. If ad is up it’s available. CASH only and don’t need help selling and I’ve heard all the scams so don’t bother me with them.”

This looks like a good price. It appears to have a bed extension and some later model Free-Lock hubs.


“Willys Jeep CJ2A with custom made truck bed and hydraulic pump for plow. It’s a restoration project and appears to be all original. Jeep is complete with drivetrain. It doesn’t run and didn’t when I purchased in 2008 from people in Crystola. I bought it to restore but didn’t get around to it.”

1949 CJ-3A San Antonio, TX $5000


Runs and drives.


“I have a 1949 CJ3A Jeep for sale. It runs and drives, has a blue bonded title. I got the parts to start the brakes, but haven’t installed them yet. It’s not a rust bucket and would be fine on a ranch as-is, but it needs work. It would be a fun project for someone who has the room and the mechanical ability for a do it yourself project. I am firm on the price.”

1950? CJ-3A Union, MO $14,500


This appears to be a CJ-3A With a CJ-2A body OR a 3A body with CJ-2A bow holders(?). In any case, it looks in good shape with a Koenig hardtop.

Year? CJ-3A Tacoma, WA $4750


This jeep has been modified with a truck bed. It’s listed as a 1958, so maybe it was originally a DJ-3A or maybe it is a modified CJ-3B or CJ-5.


“I am selling my one of a kind custom Willys Jeep. This Jeep has a CJ3A front end with a custom stepside Willys pickup style bed. It is powered by a Ford 302 v8 with a T150 three speed manual transmission. That is paired to a Dana 18 transfer case that puts power to a Dana 44 rear axle and a Dana 35 front axle. The Jeep has 33” tires with front locking hubs. Jeep runs, but needs a new battery and fuel, possible the carb cleaned. I’m asking $4750 or best offer.”
