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!”

“Im listing my fathers 1949 Willys Cj 3A Jeep. It has front end damage. The impact caused the front bumper to be pushed in which caused the grill to be pushed in towards the engine. This caused the radar to make contact with the fan and it punctured the radiator. The impact also caused the body to shift forward approximately 2 inches bending the front fenders, dashboard and it caused the rear drive shaft pop out of the transfer case . The transfer case and drive shaft are not cracked.

-The engine was rebuilt locally approximately 7 years ago.
– All tires to include the spare are mounted on 16″ rims with military style tires that were all purchased new a 1.5 years ago.
– Metal hard top with metal doors
– All new leaf springs & shock purchased new in 2017
– The body has been patched in several areas

Also included is a 1/4 ton Vietnam error trailer
The jeep runs and now needs someone who can lift the body and line back up. Its all there it just now needs some time and muscle.
Clear PA title in hand and located in Trappe PA 19426
Local pick up only & email/text with any questions.

“Registered (non-op currently) as a 1967 due to a motor swap, this Flat Fender Jeep is actually a 40’s or early 50’s Jeep Willys. The motor is a Chevy 283 V8 from a 67′ Chevelle. This Jeep is full of goodies and smog exempt. After owning her for more than 10 years (Originally a bachelors toy), it’s time to find a new home as there’s little room for kids & dogs in a Willys. One guarantee, This Jeep makes people smile, especially children when they see it. Like a big bright yellow Tonka toy. It’s also a blast to take to classic car shows as it’s always one of the oldest vehicles in attendance and often the most unique (not just another hotrod/muscle car in the lineup, and the only on that can go OFF the highway).
