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."

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

The price of this CJ-3A sounds about right.  Some pics of this one would be nice to see.  Obviously, the year isn't quite right, but maybe it's on a later model frame?

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"

1951 CJ-3A Sacramento, Ca $3750 obo

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.”

1951 CJ-3A Texas eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

Most of this CJ-3A looks to be in very good condition.  I'm not a fan of the roll bar though.  The low reserve of $500 means this will definitely be sold.

"Very rare find! This vehicle is showing 306 miles, yes three hundred six miles. I am assuming someone did a full frame off restoration at some point of this Jeeps life and installed those gauges at that time. I recently acquired it so, I am not sure of previous history. But, it appears to have been restored by some one and put away for some time. The paint looks great except for the burnt part on the hood which is not that noticeable until you get right up on it. It also has some minor rust around bolts and hinges and one bubble pictured on the tub right behind the passenger entry area. The body seems solid, the floors seem solid….. Call with any questions please. Thank you. 281-807-9233"

Year? CJ-2a/CJ-3a Nampa, Id $2800 — given away …

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

Final Update:  Originally priced at $2800, the seller dropped the price to $1000, but changed the ad so that it was difficult to find.  Eventually, the seller made good on his claim and it was given to the Youth Ranch (I missed it by two days, otherwise I would have bought it for $1000).  I haven’t seen it since.

Here’s the text of the new Ad, just prior to it being given away:

THIS JEEP WAS REBUILT AND SAT 4-5 YEARS STARTS RIGHT UP NEEDS A FEW MINOR THINGS.  IF NOT SOLD BY 5 PM THIS WED. I WILL DONATE IT TO YOUTH RANCH SELLING AS PARTS OR RECON. ITS BUILT OUT OF CHEVY INTL. FORD PARTS $1.000 FIRM”

ORIGINAL POST —

Not many specifics on this flattie.  I’m gonna bet this is a CJ-3A.  Looks pretty old school, especially those tires.  From this pic it appears the front springs are reversed.

“his thing is built to the hilt the only thing jeep is the body, intl. running gear, new built 302, 4 speed , race seats, power steering, full cage , the motor is linked to the tranny by trans adapter . done right ,all ne wiring could use tires , and a few other odds and ends . motor sounds bad ass will look”

1948 CJ-3A Divide, Co eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

The buy it now and beginning bid prices are a bit high.  There's been enough minor mods that this isn't a collector's piece (as suggested by the seller) either.  But, appears to be a solid jeep in good condition.

"Wow look at this !! A Black 1948 Willy's Jeep CJ3-A in perfect condition. This vehicle has a recently rebuilt 4cyl F-head motor, newly upholstered front and rear seats, new tires, new top. This Jeep has been well taken care of and needs nothing. It would make a great collectors piece or a great daily driver for anyone.

1951 CJ-3A Camp Verde, Az **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3200.

Either the tailgate has been patched or this jeep has a fiberglass body.  I can’t tell which from these pics.  The back part of the roll cage is somewhat unusual — at least I haven’t seen the bars organized quite like that before.

“Small block chevy, runs great, headers with side pipes, Warn overdrive, highlift jack, good tires. Could use some body work.”

Fiberglass Flatfender taken apart, Chicago eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A • TAGS: .

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

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

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."
