1951 CJ-3A Stockton, CA $6000



(12/19/2018) Bill owns this CJ-3A, one he bought via eWillys back in 2009.





“All original 1951 Willys CJ3a. Current California registration through June 2019. 6 Volt electrical system with keyed ignition and floor foot starter. Ramsey X200 R PTO winch. The person I bought the jeep from in 2009 said the winch worked but I’ve never tried it. Since I’ve owned the jeep, I’ve had the water pump rebuilt the radiator boiled out/tested and replaced the thermostat. I’ve replaced the fuel sending unit and now have a functioning fuel gauge. All gauges work. Front passenger mounted heater works.

No windshield wipers nor do they work. No bikini top but i do have a set of brackets but they are not original. The tires should have been replaced 20 or 30 years ago. Drivers rear tire will loose air but it takes a few weeks before it gets flat. All others hold air. This is a running Willys CJ3a but it I only feel comfortable going about 35 mph. You’ll need a trailer to get it home. It has a tow bar that accepts a 2 inch ball hitch but i’ve never used it. Again, you’ll need a trailer to get it home. I replaced the battery last month and it starts right up.”

“1951 CJ3 Jeep Restored ~This is a factory 225 Dauntless V6 engine with lots of power this is a three speed transmission, we never tried the 4 wheel drive, the jeep starts right up and drives like would expect a vintage jeep, it does have power steering added but not power brakes. There’s a lot of new parts including brakes, all lights, alternator radiator shocks belts gas tank etc, all the canvas is brand new and easily removable in a few minutes, includes 2 new canvas doors, newer seats with seat belts battery garage kept and was only in the rain by mistake for 5 minutes since restored,

we purchased this as a prop for our business and now we are moving on, this jeep is a real eye catcher at any event, certainly not a smooth ride like a new jeep but a lot of fun to drive.The gauges are not entirely hooked up, all the lights work including the 4 ways, the horn works as well. There is no rust, it has tow loops on front bumper and easy to remove tail gate… if wanted there is also mounts and latch to ad rear seat.”
