“I have owned this 1951 Willys CJ3A since 1979. So many great memories made with this jeep and with a little TLC another generation can experience the Willys vibe. I took it apart for a frame up restore in 1981 but never got around to putting it back together (military, marriage, kids). It has the original T90 transmission with a Novak adapter bolted to a Buick Dauntless 225 V-6 (has about 60K miles on engine). Frame is solid with new leaf hangers and bushings. The tub, fenders, hood, tailgate, grill and windshield frame are in excellent shape and were sand blasted and coated with a heavy 3M primer before it was stored. This jeep has been barn stored for the past 36 years. Just needs to be reassembled and painted. Includes original backseat and added roll bar.”

“This ad is for an old 1950 Flat Fender Jeep Willys. Its pretty much complete and not far off from being able to drive. I was planning on getting a 6 volt battery and get it running but it might be easier to do a 12 volt conversion, not sure. I’m afraid to do anything that might damage the 6 volt system. Anyway I don’t have any long term plans for it and not attached and have other projects going on. So it’s about time to let it go.”

“1953 Willys CJ3A. It runs and drives, 100% brand new T90 3-speed transmission and rebuilt steering box. Engine is an F head out of a later model versus the L head that would have come factory. 4WD works, hubs and T18 transfer case shift well in and out of 2/4WD and Hi/Lo. Also new front fenders, front suspension (springs, shackles, pivot bolts), new shocks all around. Could use a little carb tuning. Steering is tight with the tie rod ends in good shape.

Frame is straight and not all rotted out. Tub could be better, but it’s 67 year old thin sheet metal after all. Tub floor pan was also bed lined by a previous owner, and free from any cancerous rust. Great starting point for a full restore, father/son build, crawler, motor swap, whatever you want. Simple with literally every part available online to replace anything on the vehicle. Bought it as a project last year and lost interest. Reg expired in 2018 so there are some back fees, unsure what they are. Any questions just ask. 5500 obo”
