1952 CJ-3A Chico, Ca $8000


Cargo area has a diamond plate floor.

“My uncle has decided it’s time to part with his jeep and has asked me to help him sell it. It is a 1952 willy’s cj3a. 4 cylinder motor, spicer dana 44 posi-trac rear end, t-90 transmission with a warn overdrive. It also has a pto winch. The heater and wipers work. He has had this jeep for along time, at least 30 years and probably longer. He has told me that he rebuilt the motor, painted and undercoated the body since he bought the jeep. He had to have done this sometime soon after he acquired the jeep because I don’t recall him doing anything like that for some years. He is in his 80’s. Anyhow this jeep runs like a top.

I went for a short drive the day I took pictures and it’s incredible to me how smooth everything ran and shifted and also how quiet it was. I didn’t see any rust in any areas other than where your feet sit on the floorboards. The rear of the tub has been replaced with diamond plate, before my uncle owned it. Included are the rear seat and all the bows for a top as well as the door frames. The jeep also has a am/fm radio and a cb radio. I took about 15 pictures which I can send to serious buyers. The jeep is located 2 hrs from my house, so I can’t show it to everyone and will have to plan showings out in advance. Serious inquiries can call. Thanks for your interest. Mike”
