Year? CJ-3A? Zillah, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

year-cj3a-zillah-wa-01

UPDATE: **Sold**

This is a REALLY well done build. The customizations are clean and simply executed. David has a clear title, but the serial number appears to be from the previous L-head engine (not uncommon).

The only issue with the jeep is that the hazards are staying on when the jeep is running. The switch to turn them off isn’t obvious (unclear where that is).

Here are the specs as best as I could determine:

It is a CJ-3A based on the body and the frame
Buick V6 (most likely a 225)
12 volt system
3 Speed (T-14?)
Dana 20 transfercase (single lever)
Custom radiator
Power Steering
Tilt Steering wheel (possibly out of a Cherokee jeep?)
Dana 30 front (most likely)
Dana 44 rear 30 spline axle center pumpkin
Dual tanks with a change-over valve
Swing pedals
Mechanical, but custom, clutch setup.
Dual master brake cylinder
Disc brakes in the front
Drum brakes in the rear (likely 11″)
Full Roll cage, though mounted to the body and not to the frame
Soft top
Serial number likely based on the previous L-head 4 cyl engine
Custom rear bumper

“I have a 1949 CJ3A Jeep for sale. It runs and drives, has a blue bonded title. I got the parts to start the brakes, but haven’t installed them yet. It’s not a rust bucket and would be fine on a ranch as-is, but it needs work. It would be a fun project for someone who has the room and the mechanical ability for a do it yourself project. I am firm on the price.”

1946? VEC? CJ-2A/M-38 Missouri Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, M-38

Give the data plate serial number of 29621, I thought this might be a VEC CJ-2A chassis with an M-38 body. However, note the grille and front crossmember seem set up for a grille mounted radiator, rather than a front member mounted radiator. But, it is definitely CJ (not M-38) chassis. This doesn’t run.

“Here I have a 1947 Willy’s jeep that I believe to be the military version. It is almost complete with not to bad of rust. Motor is NOT locked up and spins freely. The radiator is missing, I do have the headlight that is missing in the pictures. I can take better pictures for more serious people. I am currently only looking to trade for a good 4 wheeler or possibly a pickup, classic VW, throw me a offer.Does have a clean title”
