Year? DJ-3A? Sewell, NJ $2750


UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/14/2020) With 3-on-the-tree and 2WD it sounds like a DJ-3A. The solid back suggests it may have been a convertible model; yet the body has cutout in the rear wells consistent with having been mounted on an MB/GPW. Has the correct hand brake, but incorrect gauges. Has the correct front end, but incorrect rear end. Has the correct 2/3 1/3 seats for a convertible model. Has the incorrect windshield.


“I have a 1949 Willies Jeep. It’s a army Jeep. I am looking for someone that will appreciate what it represents. AMERICA. Lol. I did have a title but am unable to locate at this time. I have extra parts and the original rear. It is a 3 on the tree,2wd, single barrel straight 4. It does run and I have driven around my yard. I am looking for a person that knows what a special find this is. Trust me I don’t want to post this for sale,but I want someone who can restore it back to glory.”

1949 CJ-3A Fords, NJ $6500


Listed as a CJ-2A, it looks to be a CJ-3A that needs brakes at the very least. It likely does not have the original engine.


“Work in process DOSEN’T come with tow bar its not mine to give Engine runs it drives just needs brakes to be done Everything in the drivetrain works as it should clutch front locking hubs low range high range she will drive whole drive all the syncros all the gears It’s converted to 12 V has a alternator 12 V coil etc. i have a bunch of brand new parts that go with it Full exhaust system old one on it is ok dont need to be replaced Full pre-bent stainless steel brake line kit New rubber brake hoses Brand new wheel cylinders Brand new drums New shoes w hardware  All brand new gauges New master cylinder New gastank”

1951 CJ-3A Tustin, CA $3200


Looks like a full rebuild that will take more effort than the seller suggests.


“Check out this sweet 1951 cj3a. She has a very solid body. Bubba cut a 2 holes in the rear. I’m guessing to use so kind of equipment. Mobile welder or something off a PTO. She was a work jeep for sure. But looks to be taken care off. Other then the hood the body has this cool German desert camo kind of patina too it and check out the vintage mascot painted one it. It says “go devil powered” pretty Rad!! Also on the tail gate you can still make out the willys four wheel drive. I have a windshield frame gas tank and radiator for it. As is. has a tile and non op reg. But she has her spot in line to be fixed up and it won’t take much to get her going and street worthy again!!”

1951 CJ-3A Fraser, CO $9999


This has any unusual extension setup along with shorter rear barm doors. Maybe a Koenig hardtop?


1951-cj3a-fraser-co4 1951-cj3a-fraser-co51951-cj3a-fraser-co8

“I am sad to be posting this but here it is. This is a one of a kind Hardtop Jeep Willys CJ3A. It has 18,500 original miles and the motor was rebuilt at 15,826 in 2016 ($3000 of work that I have the paperwork for).

Shocks were replaced at 15,665 miles. It is converted to 12volt. Its got brake lights and blinkers. 4×4 high and low work perfectly. The hardtop is custom fitted and fabricated, they didn’t make these with hardtops back then. This is a one of one Jeep Willys with an awesome patina, it could be sanded and panted easily but I would say don’t do it, keep that patina alive.

Rebuilt starter, new fuel pump, carburetor, Master cylinder, plugs, wires, tune up parts, sheering wheel, and steering bell crank pin and bearings. This would make a great parade or farm jeep. It would be an excellent restoration project. There is some bondo here and there, it pops out of second gear when you let off the gas and use the gears to slow it. (typical) It has leaks and some play in the steering. (All very normal for one of these) It is available if it is still listed. It is located at Quarter Ton Parts in Chickamauga, GA. Hours are 8-4 eastern M-F.”
