1953 CJ-3A Tucson, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500

(06/01/2020) This is a custom build with a fiberglass body. I assume it is registered as a 1953 jeep, hence the year.

“Custom built Willys Jeep. Very fun to cruise, gets lots of attention! The perfect beer runner or pit cruiser. All tube chassis, fiberglass body. Ford 3.8 V6 with Ford auto trans, power steering. 2 wheel drive. New wheels, tires, seats, shocks, stereo, glass windshield, steering wheel, exhaust”

Year? CJ-2A Cheyenne, WY $2250


This has a 2A body, so the listed year of 1950 may be incorrect. It’s got a few other odd mods, too.


“1950 Willys Jeep CJ3 CJ3A Barn Find!!! This is a 1950 Jeep CJ3A that has a Buick V6 transplant. Intakes and cylinders look good oil is clean, looks like it was never run. Pretty sure it have not been driven in at least 20 years. Body is ok but not too rusty. Frame is solid. Have a clean title. Bought from a barn locally this winter but have too many projects.”

Year? CJ-3A? Paradise, TX $1350


Listed as a 1946 CJ-2A, this looks more like a CJ-3A to me. The 2A ignition switch hole is absent, there are no bow holders, the radiator and oil filter mount are not 2A, and it lacks the front frame horns.


“Project or parts, has engine and trans, transfer case, axles etc. Rusty but fixable. No title, no title, no title. See pics what you see is what you get. As is where is”

1952 CJ-3A Puyallup, WA For Trade


The seller is interested in trading for another jeep. He provides a list of jeeps at the bottom of the text. In his description, the seller doesn’t note that the body is a reproduction body.

“I’m listing my 1952 Willys CJ3A Jeep MAINLY for trade/possible sale consideration. The price is basically a “ballpark value” measuring tool. I’m just listing for trade vehicles I may want more than my Jeep, NOT because I need to sell or don’t like my Jeep. It is getting harder to drive as I’m getting older and would like a toy (JEEP ) that’s easier to drive (automatic, power steering, etc.) which will make sense if you read my trade list below.

Year? CJ-3A Albuquerque, NM $4800


Listed as a CJ-2A, it looks more like a CJ-3A. Oddly, this has a circular fuel inlet, but I can’t see anything else that makes me think this is some kind of 1) DJ body or 2) replacement body.


“Jeep Willys CJ-2A for sale, original engine and transmission I believe. Possibly a 1948 (missing tag on firewall for identification.) No title – but none needed for a 1948 as far as I know. $4800, and buyer tows from the yard.”
