1952 CJ-3A Kirkland, WA $5950


UPDATE: Price dropped to $5950.

(07/20/2018) Looks like the tub is metal. The hood might be a rare teardrop Bobcat fiberglass hood.


“Had fun with this thing now time for the next toy. This is a forest green 1952 Jeep Willy’s (cj2a I think). Buick engine swap done by last owner. Such a good weekend driver for the summer with the reliable engine (no choke but runs awesome). Comes with full canvas top. Everything works except windshield wipers (needs to be hooked up is all), and there is no parking brake. Basically everything else is there and functional.

It is in good drivable condition and looks great from 30ft. The body is a bit rough under the paint, but it’s old after all. If your looking for something stock to bring back to original glory this is not it… this is the perfect weekend truck for chores, beers, etc.”

Looks nice.


1949-cj3a-boulder-co1 1949-cj3a-boulder-co2 1949-cj3a-boulder-co3 1949-cj3a-boulder-co4

“This is an all original Willys that was meticulously restored over the course of 2 years by myself. It was a frame off restoration down to every last nut and bolt. There is no bondo or fiberglass or rust on this baby. Everything works perfectly as it was originally designed to work and operate. The engine was completely rebuilt, the transfer case, the clutch all rebuilt. The electrical harness was replaced with a new exact duplicate. The exhaust is an exact duplicate of the original custom made in stainless steel.

The original carburetor was rebuilt and it starts on the coldest of winter days with the original 6 volt electrical system. The battery sits in its proper location in a case that looks like a vintage battery but actually contains a modern jell cell battery; one of the only minor alterations to the original. The battery has a turn disconnect on the cable so that when not in use I leave it hooked up to a 6 volt drip charge. Gas tank new, brakes rebuilt, E-brake works, knuckles rebuilt; front and rear bumpers attached with proper original rivets. I did not replace the original windshield but chose to re-install it after the paint.
