1949-cj3a-ham-mt8 1949-cj3a-ham-mt9


“1947 jeep CJ3A. I was told it ran when I bought it but I have haven’t spent the time to get it running. It’s rare to have a Jeep this old with the original paint, etc… What attracted me to this Jeep was the original paint and patina. I had lofty aspirations of restoring it, but it has just sat in my shop for years. It was used in the back country for years as a hunting rig by the original owner and I was told it has packed out a lot of elk. I do have a roll bar for it, work manuals, and a few extra parts. This would make a really good project for someone who loves Jeeps. And it would be an absolute blast to drive around town, or take it into the back country. It is an original Darby, Montana Jeep. And was used extensively off road in the back country for elk hunting expeditions by two friends. $3900 obo. “
