UPDATE: Still Available.

“I have a 1949 CJ3A Jeep for sale. It runs and drives, has a blue bonded title. I got the parts to start the brakes, but haven’t installed them yet. It’s not a rust bucket and would be fine on a ranch as-is, but it needs work. It would be a fun project for someone who has the room and the mechanical ability for a do it yourself project. I am firm on the price.”

Year? CJ-3A? Laurel, MT $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Features, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

Jerry’s father is selling this jeep he found in Wyoming (contact Jerry via FB — https://www.facebook.com/groups/18657808157/permalink/10160120357838158).

Jerry was told this was one of about a hundred that were built by an unknown company. I looked through my archives, but could not find anything exactly like this one. Anyone ever seen one like this?

For all the work that was done to create it, it seems possible that more were made. Jerry indicates that the body is galvanized. The entire top is custom, along with the fenders, and it looks like the work is reasonably good. The doors are suicide doors. The hood looks like an original part. The cowl and dash may be original, but the dash has been modified. The fan shroud is galvanized with an old electric fan.

If forced to guess, I’d say if several hundred were built, that they were older jeeps that were stripped and rebuilt. If all like this one, they were designed for colder and wetter climates (permanent hood, perm dash, and a perm heater blower), so I could imagine these would have been constructed out of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, or Northern Idaho.

Another theory is that if several hundred built, maybe they weren’t all built the same? Maybe some were more custom than others or more creative than others? That might explain some of the odd designs that we’ve seen over the years out of the northern Intermountain West? My assumption had been these were all home built, but perhaps not?

Great Jeep with aftermarket buckets. Have a full black top with doors but windows went bad and have spots inside them. Needs bodywork and paint. Body has some rust in usual spots but frame is fine.”

“1949 Willy’s CJ3A. Runs and drives great. I have an additional motor that came with it when I bought it from a 1960 Jeep, original hood and tow bar. Also, I have an extra set of wheels and tires to go with it. The body is in great shape. Little to no rust. The guy I bought it from wasn’t sure on the year, but said he dropped in an early 1960’s F4-134 F-Head motor. Everything works: four-wheel drive, transmission, lights, speedometer, oil-pressure, etc. Already has the classic license plates.

It is 73 years old, so there’s always room for improvement. The windshield is cracked, no e-brake (I have the housing), gas gauge doesn’t work (needs a new tank sending unit), muffler pipe is cracked and could use a weld, wouldn’t hurt to get a new battery. It’s been converted to a 12V system.

Overall, it’s a great Willy’s that isn’t rusted out. It’s been stored inside. Nice to drive to town or take into the mountains. Awesome hunting rig, just don’t have the time or storage anymore for it. $6,200 OBO. Looking for cash at the moment, no trades.”
