Looks solid.

View all the information on eBay





“This CJ-3A was found in Colorado and towed to Wrightwood where it was purchased in 2001.
It had been hand painted and decorated with a brush. Although it still ran it was very very tired.
With the help and guidance of the most recent owner (Vietnam Vet), there was a frame off restoration done!
Along with a completely rebuilt engine and transmission, the body was removed and straightened piece by piece.
51 years of dirt and grease were removed from the frame and repainted.
This Jeep was put back together just in time in 2003 for the Wrightwood Car Show.

Today this Little Flattie is completely original. All of the gauges have been replaced with original equipment.
The electrical system has been rewired to original specifications.
Except for the 15-inch rims that replaced the original 16 inch, this is what it looked like
on the show room floor in 1950.”

“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.

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)

“1951 CJ3 Jeep Restored ~This is a factory 225 Dauntless V6 engine with lots of power this is a three speed transmission, we never tried the 4 wheel drive, the jeep starts right up and drives like would expect a vintage jeep, it does have power steering added but not power brakes. There’s a lot of new parts including brakes, all lights, alternator radiator shocks belts gas tank etc, all the canvas is brand new and easily removable in a few minutes, includes 2 new canvas doors, newer seats with seat belts battery garage kept and was only in the rain by mistake for 5 minutes since restored,

we purchased this as a prop for our business and now we are moving on, this jeep is a real eye catcher at any event, certainly not a smooth ride like a new jeep but a lot of fun to drive.The gauges are not entirely hooked up, all the lights work including the 4 ways, the horn works as well. There is no rust, it has tow loops on front bumper and easy to remove tail gate… if wanted there is also mounts and latch to ad rear seat.”

1950 CJ-3A Clovis, CA $13,500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/16/2018) 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.

1950 CJ-3A Lyles, TN $14,000


This is an interesting build. I thought it might be a DJ delivery body, but it does appear to be a 3A body. I’d say those front fenders are custom. The front frame rails have been extended.


“This is a fully restored 1950 Willys Jeep. Really awesome vehicle for any Jeep enthusiast! Original Drivetrain!”
