Rob’s selling his nice looking 3A named “Scout” with a set of beautiful Free-Lock hubs.

“his CJ-3A, affectionately known as “Scout,” was born in 1950. Having spent the majority of its life on a mountain property in Mariposa, CA; this Willys Jeep has always been 100% free from any rot, cancer, or structural rust.

After a lengthy search for the right era-stock 3A, in 2012 I purchased Scout from its second California owner. Shortly thereafter, I found another unit that had a freshly rebuilt drivetrain (less than 20 hours), so I purchased it too and combined our solid rust-free Scout with the fresh heart and axles of the donor.

As I have a hard time leaving well enough alone, your new Willys will come with $10,723.51 in parts receipts, including the new “Herm the Overdrive Guy” 30% overdrive! Yes, everything works as designed. Every gauge, headlight, taillight, and parking light; even the factory high beam indicator and map light glow proudly on the dash. The transmission and transfer case shift with a positive engagement rarely found in Jeeps of this era. The engine starts right up, hot or cold, and purrs like a kitten at 180 degrees; always. The custom receiver hitch is ready to haul your boat to the pond. And if worse comes to worse, the Bellview/Warn winch powered by a custom 6/12v battery system stands at the ready.

(08/20/2018) Needs head gasket.

https://bozeman.craigslist.org/cto/d/1949-willys-jeep/6712718023.html

“RIGHT PHONE NUMBER THIS TIME.
Sorry to anyone that tried to contact me about this Jeep. I don’t know how but somehow I posted the wrong number.
1949 Willy’s Jeep. Decent shape. Rust for sure but it is still there. It has the 4 cyl. Flathead “go devil”. Just put a new head gasket on and found that piston 3 does have some damage to it. Engine still runs as is. Looks as if the prior owner took out the damaging piece and ran it. Then stopped cause the head gasket developed a leak into cylinder 2. Other downside is that the starter is not shooting out to engage the engine and turn it. Bright sides are many though! It has a in tact windshield, brand new tires, a recently gone through trans and it has been converted to 12 volt! Granted whoever did it used only red wires but still, that’s a 400 dollar conversion. Also all the gauges work or seem to!
Got the Jeep on a trade and though it is cool, I have a off-road rig already and really need the cash. Only trade I would entertain is a car hauler. 18′ or more with drive over fenders.”
