Year? CJ-3A Tacoma, WA $4750


This jeep has been modified with a truck bed. It’s listed as a 1958, so maybe it was originally a DJ-3A or maybe it is a modified CJ-3B or CJ-5.


“I am selling my one of a kind custom Willys Jeep. This Jeep has a CJ3A front end with a custom stepside Willys pickup style bed. It is powered by a Ford 302 v8 with a T150 three speed manual transmission. That is paired to a Dana 18 transfer case that puts power to a Dana 44 rear axle and a Dana 35 front axle. The Jeep has 33” tires with front locking hubs. Jeep runs, but needs a new battery and fuel, possible the carb cleaned. I’m asking $4750 or best offer.”

Year? CJ-3A? Houston, TX Price?


This jeep is listed at $18,500, but I prefer to think that is either a 1) mistake or 2) random price. It’s listed as a 1947 CJ-2A, but lacking top bow brackets and sporting a 3A windshield, could be a CJ-3A.


“1947 Jeep Willys, CJ 2A, CJ2
motor has been pulled to rebuild and comes with the Jeep (in back). I’m moving and need to let it go.
little rust, as this Jeep spent most of its years in West Texas
Has not run in 10+ years. Motor pulled last summer. All parts come with Jeep.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.

(05/29/2021) Runs, powered by an f-head.


“I Bought this last year, It is a CJ3A Flat Fender. I have not done a thing to it since I got it other than I bought new seats for it that will come with it but not installed. It is just taking up space.
Runs good, Breaks need a little work but did work with fluid. It was covered with Rhino Liner as a paint job but looks ok, I was thinking of painting it Green and putting MASH 4077 on it as it is the right year for that. Needs the alternator re aligned but it does work. Has the original back seat frame.”

“It’s time to sell my 1948 Willy’s CJ2a Jeep. Price is $14,000. Facebook won’t allow my price. I’ve owned this Jeep for about 4 years and have had a great time with it. It’s now time for someone else to enjoy.

I’ve driven this Jeep around many back roads of New Jersey sometimes putting upwards of about 150 to 200 miles on it in a weekend. It always starts and runs like a champ. Got into it in the middle of May after its long winters nap and after a couple of pumps on the accelerator pedal and a few seconds cranking the engine it sprang to life! It was restored when I purchased it but the former seller left it outside under a cover for about a year. Continue reading
