1949 CJ-3A Silver City, NM $2500


Seller will only sell locally.

“1949 Willys CJ-3A 4×4 Jeep with the Buick Dauntless 225 V-6 engine. Jeep has many NEW PARTS, like Battery, brake drums, brake master cylinder, alternator, carb choke, radiator electric fan, turn signals, parking lights, tail lights, vinyl bikini top, front seats, Instrument gages, and probably some other things I’ve forgotten. It has been partially painted with flat black to protect the tin. Tires are in excellent condition, and there’s a spare. It starts, runs, and drives, (2 and 4 wheel drive work), but it’s still a project in progress. It still needs a few things, like some body work, paint, a parking brake, and any custom work, that would turn it into a special attention getter, or rock climber.

Call or email to see it. If you have an Area Code that is not 575, 505, 520, or 915, email me, and tell me why you don’t have a local Area Code. I won’t answer distant Area Code calls, or Texts because of scammers wasting my time, trying to scam me. No, I will not do shipping, or give out any paypal info. Jeep will only be sold in person, and for cash. Asking $2,500.”
