“I’m selling my 1950 Willys CJ-3a, it was my first car and daily driver for 15 years, but now I think it’s time to move on.

Much of the drivetrain has been rebuilt, but it has taken a beating from years of off-roading and daily driving, so it’ll need some work. It has a 30% overdrive from Herm the overdrive guy, which can get you comfortably to about 60-65mph (I don’t recommend driving it on the freeway though). Has new powder coated steel wheels and NDT’s. New transfercase, windshield, seats & upholstery, gauges, comes with lots of spare parts, manuals, etc…

The body is in OK condition, but has thick Bondo in a few places, my friend peeled away the Bondo on the rear right wheel well where the spare used to be. Most of the photos aren’t super recent, so if there’s anything you’d like a photo of in particular let me know and I can send you a fresh photo, or if you’d like to come take a look at it you can contact me at the number in the listing (no texts please). I like people to know what they are getting when I sell, so I’ll do my best to let you know of any problems or particularities that it has.

My Jeep was featured on the cover of the 2015 Kaiser Willys catalog.

I’d really like it to go to someone who will enjoy it as much as I have, I’m really not looking forward to selling it but I’m looking to get an MG TD for commuting and more consistent gas mileage and I can’t afford to buy another car without selling one.”

“Over the past 70 plus years, this super clean little Jeep has only been owned by two families. The Jeep is in super clean condition. It runs and drives as it should. Its super fun!

What really sets this Jeep apart from the rest is the rear mounted Power Take Off unit. These were ordered by farmers back in the day to run Buzz Saws, Pumps, Generators etc. The system is complete and works!

The Jeep also has an original Willys heater system. All the lights, wipers, horn etc. work! The original flat four cylinder engine had a recent valve job and new carburetor installed.

Comes with an original Service Manual and a file an inch thick of years of receipts etc. Located in San Antonio, always kept indoors. Comes with a clear Texas title. Thanks for looking!!!!!”

“1946 Willys. Has a Ford 4 cylinder 2.3L Turbocharged engine that came out of a late 80’s Mustang SVO. I don’t know the mileage. The motor runs great but hasn’t ran in a few years. It’s a project I’ve owned for 5 years and I never got to it and now I need money more than a project. So even though it’s breaking my heart, it’s for sale. It has 1 seat, and no roll cage, the tires are still great and all hold air, they’re 33×12.50×15. The rears are worn down quite a bit more than the fronts because turbocharged burnouts. This thing is awesome and it sounds amazing. Definitely a head turner. Needs a battery and you’ll have to put the MAF back on because it was sitting on the battery so I took it off when the battery was pulled. Needs fresh gas. The front driveline needs a u-joint. It needs trailered. If you don’t have a truck just rent a trailer and I’ll deliver if you’re local. Willing to trade for a camp trailer. [hidden information] Cody. Bill of sale only. Last registered in Utah as OHV”
