“Up for sale is a totally restored 1950 Jeep Willys CJ3A. Stand out from the Wrangler crowd with this Willys. You will get more attention with this old girl than you would expect. This is a total off frame restoration. Everything has been gone through, and I mean everything. There is nothing that needs to be done to this beauty. The restoration brought her back to her original glory including new wiring and 6V electrical system. Starts on the first crank and runs like a brand new sewing machine. They don’t make them like this anymore.

The pictures tell the story! Perfect for cruising around town, to the beach, dinner, shopping, or anywhere where you are seeking fun getting there. I have $16,000+ invested in this restoration and over 1000 hours in labor that isn’t included in that number. It’s really hard to find these in this good of condition. I have a new Jeep project I’m working on and need the space. I hate to see this one go! Clean Florida title in hand.”

Comes with a second set of axles.

Did a rebuild with the original flat head 4, then modified in 1972 to a 307 Chevy V-8, 4 speed T90 manual trans, Hurst shifter, overdrive, CJ5 front and rear end. Still has drum brakes which work well. I would love to keep it (why not?!) but we are moving later this year and it’s time for her to find a new loving home. Runs great, current motor has approximately 15,000 miles on it.”

“1952 Willys CJ3A Auburn Jeep-a-Trench Trencher Jeep.
This is a nice project vehicle. Complete Early Auburn Trencher on a 1952 Willys CJ3A.
No Title. Low miles? NE Ohio. Akron / Canton Area. This Trencher was used to dig irrigation ditches on a golf course in Northern Ohio. It was sitting outdoors when I saved it.
Frame is in great shape. Leaf springs are ok, but I would replace them with better. Body is pretty good (my opinion), No filler. Could use new front floor of course. Half cab top bows – no canvas, no door frames, Monarch Governor with handle and cable. Transmission is locked, I disconnected the drive shaft to roll it. I removed all brake drums also, found one rear hub was cracked. Someone installed with axle shaft key in backward. I have a few drums on axles laying around could have them if they are ok, I would have to pull them from the axles to check. Motor–not sure yet, but plan on checking it out. You would need to bring your own wheels. I want to keep the red wheels I put on it, or I might consider letting them go for a price TBD. But they are brand new zero miles, 15” Goodyear Duratracs I had planned for another jeep. Serious inquiries only please – I have about 60 or so more pictures to share via email to serious potential new owners. I am asking $3500.00 with out the wheels.
Feel free to text of call. Leave voice message if I do not answer. Ray.”
