1950 CJ-3A & 1947 CJ-2A Hubbard, OR $2750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Wood bodies

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2750.

The CJ-2A’s body is wood from a Sears & Roebuck kit. Seems we have run across one of those kits before.




“Package deal of tona of parts and three Willy’s Jeeps. One ’47 CJ2A (white) complete but half the body is a plywood kit from Sears Roebuck. No title. Engine has lots of rust but repairable with a hot tank and time. Needs work but good frame and lots of good parts, or make it run again if you want.

One ’47 CJ2A just the body have the windshield, fenders, grille, seats, tailgate, and other metal for it.

And one ’50 CJ3A complete with title runs and drives but has bad tires, no brakes, no steering (the front crossmember is busted off, planned to chassis swap with the white 2A.) Grille is unbolted as is left fender to work on car. Has new starter and new ignition parts. Runs like a top stock fuel pump even works.

Planned to use the running gear from green one, body of the tub and parts, and chassis from the white one to make one nice stock jeep easily then use the remaining parts to build the remaining parts into crawlers or something fun.

Parts include:
Engine block in good shape will need cleaned up, cranks, cams, pistons, rods, oil pans, transfer cases, I think transmission, drive shafts, radiator, tons of body metal such as hoods fenders doors windshields (including glass) tailgates, parts to put a canvas top on, basically three entire jeeps worth of parts including lots of new parts worth ~450 from Kaiser Willy’s with receipt.

May split stuff. Yes the VW stuff is for sale too.

1949-cj3a-ham-mt8 1949-cj3a-ham-mt9


“1947 jeep CJ3A. I was told it ran when I bought it but I have haven’t spent the time to get it running. It’s rare to have a Jeep this old with the original paint, etc… What attracted me to this Jeep was the original paint and patina. I had lofty aspirations of restoring it, but it has just sat in my shop for years. It was used in the back country for years as a hunting rig by the original owner and I was told it has packed out a lot of elk. I do have a roll bar for it, work manuals, and a few extra parts. This would make a really good project for someone who loves Jeeps. And it would be an absolute blast to drive around town, or take it into the back country. It is an original Darby, Montana Jeep. And was used extensively off road in the back country for elk hunting expeditions by two friends. $3900 obo. “
