1949 CJ-3A Prospect, OH eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

This is a good looking CJ-3A, which appears to be wearing a MB body rather than a CJ-3A body.  Note the side cutouts, the jockey box in the dash, the lack of a tailgate, and the storage areas in the rear wheel well.  If this is an original MB body, it’s is great condition.

Stainless Steel Willys Flatfender Body Moses Lake, Wa

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, stainless/jewels

UPDATE:  I do not know whether this sold or not.  I’ll keep for historical purposes.

Obviously, these don’t appear every day.  Note that this one has been stretched 6 inches, which makes it ideal for placing on a CJ-5 frame.  It appears to have a solid back, like a DJ-3A.

“Very Cool!! RARE!! Stainless Steel Willys Jeep Body Hand built in the philippines in the 1970’s and was shipped to the states. Streched 6 in. in door & 6 in. Behind the rear fender. The Body will fit right onto a CJ-5 Frame It’s a Must sale for me… I simply need the money. “

UPDATE:  Price now $2900

The Pontiac 195, also known as a Pontiac 194 and the ‘trophy 4’, is an interesting engine built between 1961-1963.  Apparently, it’s nearly as heavy as its 389 V8 cousin. That said, these were successfully modified for racing, including drag racing. While looking up the engine, I found the below jeep in several pictures on this website.

“1952 Willys CJ-3A with a Pontiac 195 (3.4l, half of a Pontiac 389 V8) slant 4 that runs great. New CJ-5 brakes/wheel cylinders, new battery, K&N air filter, Rancho 2 1/2 inch lift and shocks, 95% tread 31X10’s Federal All Terrains, new Besttop seats, good Besttop soft top, Smittybuilt XRC-8 Winch.

1949 CJ? Montgomery, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $500. **SOLD**

Check out the rear end on this jeep. If that’s a modification, then when it was done, it was done nicely (now it’s a bit beat up). If that’s original, then it is rare!  I’ve done some searches, but they haven’t yielded any suggestion that this is a production length….

“I am selling a 1949 willys jeep it was running last yaer and I was going to overhaul the moter just never got around to it this jeep is in great shape.

It says it’s never been used, but it looks like the front clip was ready to be installed.  If it is in as good as shape as advertised, then this is a great price.

1951 CJ-3A Oceanside, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, GPW (Ford MB), MB

The seller states $12000 was spent on the restoration of this CJ-3A and that it will now go easily down Cali highways at 80mph. My response would be, for starters, how does the hood stay down at 80mph, because there is only a hood latch on the passenger side fender (none on driver side) and no latch receptacles on the hood.  There's no mention of the MB body on this CJ-3A. The rear lights are missing on the driver's side.  Rather than a CJ-3A, the grille appears to be a slat grille in the front (probably the most valuable part of this jeep).  Caveat Emptor.

"4 wheel disk brakes, rancho suspension, 10,000 lb warn winch, power steering, power brakes, newer Ford 250 6 cylinder motor, new tires, new wheels, ground up restoration, new interior.  This old jeep has been lovingly professionally restored to better than new condition.  I had power disk brakes, power steering, Ford 250 motor, and rancho suspension added recently.  I also had the interior completely redone for $2200 with commercial grade heavy duty vinyl and super heavy duty rubber on the floors.  I also had the jeep painted with a $5500 base coat clear coat paint job which looks fantastic.  There's over $12,000 in restoration and now I've decided to sell it…."

1950 CJ-3A Colorado Springs, Co

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

This might be a pretty good deal.  

"This is a 1950 Jeep Willys CJ-3A. For the year, it's in great condition. It comes with a brand new, single barrel carbuerator. Nothing is missing from it, except the PTO I removed off the back. It has a 4 cylinder flathead. The engine turns over, but the new carb hasn't been hooked up yet and there's no battery so it deosn't run. I took this on as a project, but just won't have the time to put into it. It'll make a fun project for someone. Asking $2,750, but I'll consider offers. Email or call me at 303-718-0698."

Willys Rustbucket Pennsylvania $500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Last Ride • TAGS: , .

This is one of the most rusted flat fenders I think I've ever seen.  Next, I noticed the rear PTO water pump, which was cool.  Then I noticed the solid back — no tailgate, yet the body doesn't look like a MB/GPW.  It's hard for me to believe that this jeep rusted so much while in storage. 

"Willys,4 x 4. NO TITLE. year unknown, needs complete resto. has drivetrain intact. rear water pump pto driven. was in storage for 25 years until last week…. coalbiz2001@hotmail.com"

1953(?) Willys Denver, Co $5000 w/ trailer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

I’m gonna guess this is a 1953 CJ-3A with a 2A windshield and a MB grille. It looks like it needs a few more details completed than the seller lists.

“1953 Willys Jeep with Trailer.  $5000 or Make me an offer… I have not run this jeep since I began restoration, but it ran well before I began. It does have overdrive. I am including all the parts to make it look like a 1945 Willy’s. It still needs the seat cushions and speedometer. It will need to have the gas tank hooked back up as well. Has a 6 volt system. Both Jeep and Trailer have been sand blasted and painted. Pintail hook and regular ball trailer adapter is included for the trailer. Trailer has a hill brake.”
