“These Willy-Overland CJ-3A utility vehicles were converted into auxiliary power units for the US Navy in the 1950s by the Valentine Welder & Manufacturing Company for use in starting jet aircraft engines. Both vehicles are finished in yellow and equipped with a seven-slot grille, flat front fenders, a single-seat operator’s station, and power take-off equipment. The pair includes an NC-2 mobile power plant that was designed for use on aircraft carriers and modified with rear-wheel steering, front-wheel drive, and a rear equipment platform. The other truck is one of approximately 75 such units modified into an NA-4 ground-based mobile APU and is fitted with a replacement Willys F-134 inline-four paired with a three-speed manual transmission. The engine has been removed from the NC-2 and is included in the sale.”

“Up for sale is this 1953 Willys CJ3A jeep.I got this in a package deal and have too many other flat fender projects going on so decided to find a new home.Yes this has a title!! Overall condition is fairly decent.The frame has some modifications as it’s been lifted and built for some off road action.Tub is also decent but will need a new front floor board as it’s been cut to allow for a small V6 motor. It has no steering column or steering box. Since I restore flat fender Jeeps for a living I added many items back on the rig. See photos for extra items or ask specifics. Again I do have the title and the first person with 2500 OBO cash is the new owner. Sorry NO trades and if you’re not serious or just a tire kicker, don’t bother or waste my time”
