Fiberglass Flatfender taken apart, Chicago eBay


UPDATE:  The seller has reposted this on eBay with more pics.

This looks to be the same fiberglass body as my first jeep.  The seller is correct; this body is light — I used to move the body myself by crouching underneath it and picking it up on my back (my current body is somewhat heavier).  However, I disagree with the seller; this body makes a fine jeeping body.  But, if used for jeeping, tie a cage to the frame and use the cage to help support the body.

“1949 Willys CJ 2 A/B, I have one title with no vin plate, Two Straight solid frames, Light weight single wall fiberglass body tub (not my recommendation for serious off road use, good for a sand buggy), Overhead valve inline 4 cylinder engine (from a 3B or early CJ-5), 2 T 90 transmissions with transfer cases, 2 sets of stock willys axles, one of which has new brake shoes and hardware”

1951 & 1952 CJ-3A, Forks Wa, $1750


UPDATE:  Tom Florenz just let me know that these jeeps are still available. 

These will require a closer look.

"2 for the price of 1. Clear titles. Don't run. Have extra transfer case with pto. 52 needs an engine, clutch and one of the transfer cases installed, and the steering finished converted. The 51 looks to be as stock as I know with the L134 engine. After I got it home and cleaned out the junk I found most of the engine parts. It will need to be rebuilt. the 51 could be towed the 52 will have to be trailered. More pictures available. originally purchased to honor a fallen Marine (former student). No heart to finish the job."

1949 CJ-3A Vancouver, Wa $2250


This sounds like a pretty fair price for a flat fender in good working condition.  Not many comments about the body, so that will likely need closer inspection.

New 12v alternator, voltage regulator, battery and the original starter has been overhauled and works like new. Has front bucket seats and a rear seat as well. Roll bar, bikini top, spare tire w/ carrier and fuel can carrier. All wiring, gauges, blinkers and lights work fine…. 360-513-9824"

1951 CJ-3A San Francisco $8500


What I found interesting about this jeep was that it appears to be a standard wheel base running a chev 327 and TH-400. That's a pretty tight fit.  Must be a short rear driveline.  Note the driver's side fuel inlet in the back.  Looks like some good work all around.  I'd like to see some more pics of this jeep.

"$8500.00 OBO, Super clean, Fully restored, Rootbeer Brown Paint, Brown leather High bucket seats, 327 chevy corvet engine, Automatic Turbo 400 Transmission with over drive, 33 inch Dune tires custom wheels, tow winch and never been off road since restored, CD player plus extra's.  CALL DON 209-652-6193"

2 Jeeps in Minden, NV **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** was $3500

These two jeeps have been for sale for a few months, though they haven’t been listed in a while.  Both jeeps have full cages.  One jeep comes with a winch.  Both bodies appear in at least decent shape.  Unfortunately, Minden is a bit out of the way.  Given the price of gas, I doubt too many people are going to drag their haulers down to Minden unless the price drops further.”

1951 CJ-3A Maryland eBay


This sounds like a great jeeper.  It could probably use an overdrive, but otherwise sounds ready to hit the trails.

1951 CJ-3A Jamestown, NC eBay


The bid is only at $610 as of Sunday morning.  The equipment could use some cleaning, but looks to be a complete package.  I haven't seen trenching equipment for sale that is in such good shape.

"1951 CJ3A Jeep A Trench with The Auburn Willys Overland authorized Trencher attachment.  Jeep is complete.  Has approx $2,000 worth of hard to find vintage options like Govenor, rear tractor box PTO, Hub PTO, etc…alone.  Jeep used until the motor failed, then parked, resulting in the Jeep staying complete.  Have owned for over 5 years and was bought from an off road equipment dealer.  Unique piece of Jeep Willys history for a collector…"
