Rob’s selling his nice looking 3A named “Scout” with a set of beautiful Free-Lock hubs.

“his CJ-3A, affectionately known as “Scout,” was born in 1950. Having spent the majority of its life on a mountain property in Mariposa, CA; this Willys Jeep has always been 100% free from any rot, cancer, or structural rust.

After a lengthy search for the right era-stock 3A, in 2012 I purchased Scout from its second California owner. Shortly thereafter, I found another unit that had a freshly rebuilt drivetrain (less than 20 hours), so I purchased it too and combined our solid rust-free Scout with the fresh heart and axles of the donor.

As I have a hard time leaving well enough alone, your new Willys will come with $10,723.51 in parts receipts, including the new “Herm the Overdrive Guy” 30% overdrive! Yes, everything works as designed. Every gauge, headlight, taillight, and parking light; even the factory high beam indicator and map light glow proudly on the dash. The transmission and transfer case shift with a positive engagement rarely found in Jeeps of this era. The engine starts right up, hot or cold, and purrs like a kitten at 180 degrees; always. The custom receiver hitch is ready to haul your boat to the pond. And if worse comes to worse, the Bellview/Warn winch powered by a custom 6/12v battery system stands at the ready.

“Just for heck of it I’m listing my 1952 Willys CJ3A Jeep for trade consideration. The price is basically a “ballpark value” measuring tool. I’m just listing for trade vehicles I may want more than my Jeep, NOT because I need to sell or don’t like my Jeep. It is getting harder to drive as I’m getting older and would like a toy (JEEP ) that’s easier to drive, which will make sense if you read my trade list below.

Stats:
UPDATE: just installed rear fender flares.

Rebuilt 1979 Pontiac 2.5 Iron Duke 4 cylinder with a little over 30,000 on it.
Rebuilt T14 3 spd
Overhauled D18 transfer case with rebuilt Warn overdrive.
Original front/ rear differentuals with 5.38 gear ratio.
Rebuilt Saginaw manual steering.
11 inch drum brakes.
Have new master cylinder to be installed (old one works, seeps a little)
Warn locking hubs.

“Selling my restored 1948 Willys Jeep. The model is CJ2A. It is a civilian model, not military, hence the “CJ” or civilian Jeep. I purchased this Willys at the end of the summer to play around with. The previous owner purchased it fully restored, but was not a car guy. He owned it for about a year and a half and did not use it really at all. From what I can tell it has a new steel body (no fiberglass here!) and was fully restored top to bottom including all the drive train.

It is powered by the mighty 134ci “Go Devil” engine and has a 3 speed transmission with the very desirable overdrive option. 6 volt system that cranks and fires up every time, even in the cold weather! Everything works as it should and the restoration was done to original specs with the exception of the aftermarket Best Top soft top which is also in excellent condition.
