1953? M-38? Naperville, IL $8000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, M-38

This appears to have a replacement body (no cowl battery box lid). The grille and frame also don’t appear setup for an M-38 grille. The hood looks M-38.

“1953 Jeep Willys M38 with L-134 motor. This truck came from Vegas and the party I bought it from got it from Arizona where it was restored in the 90’s. This Jeep is completely rust free and absolutely solid. The inner tub was rhino lined and the frame was painted. The Jeep runs great and idles great. I rebuilt the king pin bearings, steering knuckles, drag link and bell crank so it drives straight with no death wobble.

I also rebuilt the steering box and got a new NOS sector shaft for the larger Ross box that are extremely hard to find. New gas tank and fuel pump New battery Rebuilt drag link, bell crank, king pin bearings, steering knuckles New front brakes and wheel bearings Rebuilt steering box with new sector shaft Rear gas tank rack and 2 tanks The truck has a custom built roll cage with KC lights. 12 volt conversion, electronic ignition, rebuilt alternator, functional winch, tow bar and tachometer.

1949 CJ-3A? Las Vegas, NV $8500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/08/2020) I would guess the body is a replacement body. The front roll cage loop rests atop the step. I hope there’s something connected to the frame underneath the step. The soft top looks custom and doesn’t use the windshield channel. It kind of looks like it snaps on the front? No description provided.

1946? CJ-2A? Grand Rapids, MI $7500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

This is listed as a 1946 CJ-2A, but titled as a 1949 CJ-3A. I’d say it’s more likely the 3A with a 2A windshield.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3027469247273619/

“For sale is a beautiful barn find 1940’s Jeep Willys. It was wonderfully restored by the previous owner. He was a military veteran who drove it in parades. I have cleaned and replaced fuel lines so that fuel flows clean and well. It has been converted to a 12 volt system with electric fuel pump. Engine runs and idles well. Rust free frame. Converted it to a tilt steering column with turn key ignition. All steel tub and the floors have been professionally converted to heavier metal. Includes bestop soft top in good shape. Small oil drip when engine is running, just needs a new oil pump gasket. Brakes work but should be checked to be fully road worthy. It is titled as a 1949 CJ3A. I believe it has the go devil L134 engine. Asking 7500 or best offer.”
