CJ-3A/Samarai Portland, OR $12,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

You can buy a pretty nice, regular jeep or modified jeep for this price. It’s a fiberglass body on a Samarai chassis. It’s being sold as a side-by-side-like vehicle, but technically isn’t a legal side-by-side.

1948-flattie-side-by-side-portland-or

“So this is a 1948 CJ3A, titled as such with only two parts on it that are original. Everything else is from a samurai. Basically it’s a fiberglass jeep body, bolted onto a 1994 samurai frame with all samurai running gear. It was built to be ultra light, with the bench mark of below 1800 lbs which meets the legal requirements for a side by side (class IV UTV) to go on side by side only delegated trails. It’s also a fully insured street legal registered 48 cj3a (no DEQ to meet). The fiberglass body is also made to be 8” longer than a stock CJ3A has to accommodate taller drivers. Why a samurai? Everything on a samurai is built to be lightweight. The engine is fuel injected, aluminum block and heads, fully dressed weights 175 lbs…….. If you think bolting a chevy 350 inside a CJ2A is a good idea this rig probably isn’t for you. If you recognize the biggest advantage you can have off road is lightweight, we should talk. It takes the idea of “go anywhere” to a whole new level.

The good: 5 speed transmission, fuel injection, low transfer case 5.7:1 H pattern, ARB lockers front and rear, ultra light. It’s set up for easy flat tow (4 prong trailer wired directly into the taillights). Custom made soft top to fit the extra 8″ and an island top as well. It will fit in the bed of most trucks like it’s a side by sides with the tailgate down if you don’t mind some strange looks. Gas tank fill in the rear like a samurai, not under the drivers seat like jeeps. Everything runs and works good on it.

The bad: The main reason I’m selling it is because I’m 6’4″. Even with the body 8″ longer than a stock jeep I am cramped in it and it’s uncomfortable to drive. If you are my height, you might not be happy in this rig. Currently for weight purposes it has no back seat and there is an panel in the back area cut out where the seat is supposed to go. No windshield wipers, I just haven’t hooked them up yet as I’ve never driven off road. Technically it’s not a legal side by side, law states it has to be 1) No more than 65″ wide. 2) No more than 1800 lbs dry weight. 3) 14″ wheels…………….. It meets 1 and 2 fine but I have yet to get 14″ wheels for it. I talked to the director of the Oregon OHV program about the 14″ wheels. He says he doesn’t know of that law ever being enforced and half the side by sides have 15″ wheels anyway, but if since the jeep is a technicality, they might be tecnical on enforcing such things.

The ugly: The paint. It’s an off road toy, I spent no time making it look pretty. It’s not going to win a car show for the paint job. But no dents with the fiberglass…….. Pic shows windshield folded down. $12,000 OBO, trades unlikely but I will consider them if you tell me what you have and what kind of trade deal you are looking for. Hint: I’m not stupid I know how to look things up, I know what a 1986 mini van is worth, think classic bronco, or land cruiser.”

It appears this is a CJ-3A with a DJ-3A body.  Looks like a fun little rig. It is 2WD now.

“This 1951 Willys has been in the family for over 20 years. It’s a neat cruise around car perfect for parades. The complete driveline has been changed over to an early 90’s Ford Mustang. 4 cyc. motor-trans and rearend. The seats from the mustang were also used and reupholstered.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

(04/1e/2017) Needs wiring.

“Engine fires right up and runs good. I bought a new Walcks 4WD wiring harness and wired the engine, battery, voltmeter, ignition and starter, but all the rest of the new wiring needs to be hooked up. It has been converted to a 12 volt system and a spin on oil filter. It comes with a roll bar, trailer hitch, tow bar, Bestop soft top, new turn signal switch and additional new wiring. Also included is a spare Tranny and Transfer case, plus a set of decent front fenders. I’ve invested over $5K.
I have too many home projects pending to spend any more time on this little jeep. I need to move on. It needs a garage for the winter and someone needing a project.”

1949 CJ-3A Denver, CO $7800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: When last listed this has some issues. It’s been fixed up since then.

“I’m selling my baby! This is a really nice vintage jeep that I rebuilt ground up with my Dad who is a well known roll cage and custom bumper builder. The jeep is fully functional and starts right up… great gas milage, good power for its weight and the low 5:38 gears will crawl up dam near anything! I’ve taken this jeep up Hacket Rock (Hacket Gultch) with no problem.

With a little cosmetic work, this jeep could be one of the nicest vintage jeeps around.
Heres a little more about the jeep:

– Clear title.
– Leafspring over conversion giving it added lift and flex.
– 1 inch body lift.
– Fully boxed in frame.
– Custom and nicely shaped roll cage.
– Custom front and back bumpers.
– Body floor replaced.
– Winch roll cage.
– Early 70’s Chevy Nova 4 cyl engine.
– Power steering.
– High gear, low gear, 2WD, 4WD shift options.
– Custom aluminum firewall.
– Custom center console.
– 1/4 inch real rubber liner throughout the interior floor.
– 33×9.50 tires with some good life left in them.
– Top in good shape but cracked plastic windows.
– Body is in good shape but showing some bondo cracks.
– Little to no rust.

Jeep has been stored indoors and I’d be happy to show it to you M-F 9AM-4PM… Let me know if you want to come have a look. ”
