• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, trailer

UPDATE: Still Available? The price includes a Bantam trailer.

(08/20/2017) Passenger seat isn’t installed. Appears worth a look.


“Currently does not run. I think it’s a carb problem. The engine is getting fuel spark and air so I assume it’s a mixture problem. Other then that when it does run, it’s good. Purrs like a kitten. 4×4 works. I’ve never had it off road. Well if you call being on some grass off road, then it has been. The tub looks good. It’s not really that great. It’s been patched… poorly. I got it to drive around and maybe fix later. I can’t afford to do that so it’s for sale.”

“Willy’s Jeep for sale. Purchase this Jeep and take it out off-roading immediately or take some time restoring it to your liking. If you’re looking for a jeep with no scratches, dents, bondo or rust, this isn’t the jeep for you. If you’re looking for a jeep to take out on the trails and not worry about scratching it, or if you’re looking for a restoration project, this is it. This jeep has been upgraded with a Dana 30 open knuckle front differential with a loc-rite locker, Dana 44 rear differential with posi-traction, both have 5:38 gears. The transmission was recently rebuilt and is tight. This jeep has a strong Buick 225 V-6 engine giving it plenty of power for those difficult climbs. It also has power steering and the tires have great tread. I have had the jeep for 20 years and I am just not using it any longer. I also have quite a few spare parts that will go along with the jeep.”

1949 CJ-3A Bangor, ME $6500


Doesn’t look all that ugly to me.


1949-cj3a-bangor-me6 1949-cj3a-bangor-me7 1949-cj3a-bangor-me8 1949-cj3a-bangor-me9

“I have decided to part with my stock workhorse driver 3A. This is a great “drive-it-like-it-is” rig or a perfect candidate for a body tub kit.

It’s ugly but a very solid driver. Most of the work you usually have to do when you drag home an old Jeep has been done.

I routinely drive this Jeep on 150+ mile day trips without issues. It’s seen off-roading adventures at the NH Trail Ride and Rausch Creek, PA. Used but not abused.

The Saturn overdrive allows easy cruising speeds of 55 mph or better. I pulled the original 3A motor and replaced with fresher, stronger MB motor out of a genset. I will include the original motor with the sale if you want it. I will also include a fully functioning period correct Scheneker snowplow with Hy-Lo pump, a worn but functional vinyl BestTop and doors, and a bolt on roll bar.
