1953 CJ-3A Blackfoot, ID $6500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $6500.

(12/22/2015) Has lots of updates.


“This is a 1953 Willys CJ3a. It has been a project of mine almost 10 year but it is time to sell. This vehicle is far from stock I have a throttle body injected 4.3 liter V6 installed with a rebuilt 4 speed SM 465 truck transmission attached to the dana 18 transfer case. The transfer case has been updated with the hardened intermediate shaft and modern conical beings. The brakes and clutch have been updated with Wilwood master cylinders and slave cylinder. New clutch as well. The front axle is a dana 44 with disk brakes, chromoly axle shafts and an ox locker. The rear axle is a dana 44 from a newer model CJ I installed to handle the larger 35 inch tires I’m running. There has been a power steering conversation completed, and a triangulated 4 link with fox racing shocks in the rear and both drivelines are custom for the application. The top, tub, and seats are all new along with a new fuel tank and steering column. There are a few things that need to be finished on it but I used it as my daily driver for several months and can be driven home. I have far more than my asking price put in this vehicle, but I am not sure how to place a value on it. 7000 is where I will start the negotiation on it, but reasonable offers will be considered.”

“I have decided to sale my Jeep I purchased with the sole purpose of running the Rubicon as it was on my bucket list. Which I did in 2016.
Below are most of the upgrades done to the Jeep to make it happen and a few pictures of the jeep on the trail. Since the Rubicon trip the jeep has pretty much sat in the garage and its time for it to make room for my next bucket list project. (Which is to rebuild my first new vehicle I purchased in 1980. A 1980 CJ7.)
Here are the stats:
1. 1953 CJ3a very little rust and surface only.
2. V6 Dauntless with distributor upgraded to electronic. The was professional rebuilt and only a few thousand on it since. Come bring a compression tester or use mine. This is a nice motor.
3. SM420 4 speed with the nice 7 to 1 granny first. Rebuilt but only had 50k on it when I purchased it. Continue reading
