1949 “Swiss Army” CJ Fayetteville, AR $17,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, MB

Listed as a 1949 CJ-2A Swiss Army Jeep and claimed to be “an original Swiss Army Willys Jeep”, this looks to me to be a refurbed CJ-3A with a reproduction MB body and, possibly, an MB engine. So, how ‘original’ it is isn’t clear.

It is true the Swiss Army used a wide range of jeeps, including MBs, CJ-2As, CJ-3As, M-38A1s, CJ-3Bs, CJ-5s, and Wagons (https://cj3b.info/Military/SwissArmy.html).

“1949 Willy’s CJ3A. Runs and drives great. I have an additional motor that came with it when I bought it from a 1960 Jeep, original hood and tow bar. Also, I have an extra set of wheels and tires to go with it. The body is in great shape. Little to no rust. The guy I bought it from wasn’t sure on the year, but said he dropped in an early 1960’s F4-134 F-Head motor. Everything works: four-wheel drive, transmission, lights, speedometer, oil-pressure, etc. Already has the classic license plates.

It is 73 years old, so there’s always room for improvement. The windshield is cracked, no e-brake (I have the housing), gas gauge doesn’t work (needs a new tank sending unit), muffler pipe is cracked and could use a weld, wouldn’t hurt to get a new battery. It’s been converted to a 12V system.

Overall, it’s a great Willy’s that isn’t rusted out. It’s been stored inside. Nice to drive to town or take into the mountains. Awesome hunting rig, just don’t have the time or storage anymore for it. $6,200 OBO. Looking for cash at the moment, no trades.”

Given the year and the military passenger fender, I checked to see if this was a CJ-V35U. The spare can holder and the tire mount on the back of the tailgate appear consistent with one. However, if it had the correct dash plates, most are missing.

“Again with a tear in my eye, I am offering my
1949 CJ3A Jeep that I have owned for 52 years.

This was my second Jeep and my family and I
won the most active family trophy in the Phoenix
Jeep Club for several years.

But that was a long time ago, and all good things
must come to an end.

This vehicle has many modifications mostly of the
wrecking yard variety which is the way we used to do
things back in the day.

So here is my fairly honest appraisal.

The Jeep has the V6 Dauntless engine
from a 1966 CJ5.
The engine has a polished aluminum
Ofenhauser manifold with a vintage
Carter AFB 4 barrel carburetor.

I still have the original 2 barrel manifold
and carburetor somewhere.
