1950 CJ-3A West Memphis, TN $5000


Needs a starter at the very least. The driver’s side door area has been cut.


“The starters gone out, will need to be rebuilt unless you can find one. I just don’t have the time to put anymore work into her. Had the starter rebuilt last year and I’m just not in it with insuring a vehicle to drive around my neighborhood now that I don’t live in the country, Really fun machine to drive around and I’ve had great memory’s in this little Willy’s but it’s time for a toy that’s a little newer. Top speed is about 45 miles an hour, 4x4s and lockers work just fine, it’s been sitting since November.”
