1949 CJ-3A San Antonio, TX $5000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/18/2021) Needs work.


“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


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”

Year? CJ-2A Nacogdoches, TX $1800


Listed as a 1949 CJ-3A, this had an early 2A grille, so may be more like a 1946-47. This also is pictured with a DJ-3A convertible windshield. The jeep has been disassembled.



“Willys cj3a project, was gonna do a full restoration but have decided to go another route. Taken apart currently but all the small pieces have been bagged and labeled. The tub will need some body work and new floors if your looking for a new resto. Otherwise it will work for a farm jeep. Engine runs and i have a video of it. New brakes lines and other brake components bought just never installed. Located in Nacogdoches. Price is OBO. will trade for ford truck stuff. 60-70s ford, OBS parts, would trade for a working two post lift.”

Ex-Racer Brightwood, OR $800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Racing • TAGS: .

This looks to be an ex-racing jeep. That pinto engine might have some other HP updates besides the  offy intake manifold. Note those “heart” rims; I’ve never seen them before (see last pic).


“Old Willys jeep project. Pinto motor with offenhouser intake and custom header- doesn’t run appears to have factory transmission/ transfer case but I’m not an expert on that. 4×4 with power steering custom wheels and tires. Full set of the wide wheels with turf tires that are old plus tractor tires that appear to be in very nice shape. Custom roll cage – aftermarket gauges . No title not street legal price is Firm clearing up the yard of projects so no trades- lots of potential- thanks”

“PA Titled 1953 WIllys CJ-3A. It is actually made up of Military Axles and engine, DJ-3A Tub, 3A transmission and drive train. I call it Muttly. It has a redone Military L134 Engine, and brakes, Tires are newer about 2 years old and I don’t put a lot of miles on it. I have re-done the electrical for headlights, and put in a new clutch. It does drip from the oil pan a little. The transmission pops out of second, but I do have a fully rebuilt transmission that I will provide for the price I list. I did replace the seats and add the spare tire carrier, jerry can holder, wipers, and a ebrake. I have other projects now and need space. $7500.00 OBO. I will supply a non-rebuilt transmission (dis-assemble ready to be rebuild for $500.00 less.) I also have a second 1947 title CJ-2A Ready for rebuild”
