“1952 Jeep Willys CJ3A flatfender with a CJ2A style M38 body tub. Jeep has very little rot for the year and is about 80% complete. It will run and drive with a little work. 134 cubic inch “L head” flathead 4 cylinder with T90 3 speed transmission, Dana 18 twin stick transfer case. Brakes were rebuilt and has a small lift kit installed. It is currently on tube-type 7.50-16 bias ply traction plus tires on stock style steel wheels. Has 3A windshield and frame with 3A grille. Marker lights converted to dual filament bulbs for directional kit and I have a Stat-900 series column switch. Has been converted to 12 volt with GM Delco 10-SI alternator but it really should be re-wired with the correct style harness. Has aftermarket period correct rollbar and an aluminum hard top and doors that can be restored or just painted and left as-is. Jeep needs new body mount kit and rear bumper, and steering box to be rebuilt with new bearings and seals. Will need finish assembly. I have a spare 2A dashboard and cowl panel to use for patch pieces to put the dash back to original. Has Warn Dual-Matic lockout hub assemblies on the front axle. $2,000 takes it home. No title issued in NY state before 1973 but has a NY transferable registration from a previous owner. I never personally registered this vehicle. Excellent trail rig or beach buggy.”

This has been militarized.



“1951 Willy’s CJ-3A Jeep
(Civilian / M-38 Military Clone)

1951 Willy’s CJ-3A Jeep (Civilian / M-38 Military Clone)
Serial# 3J77908

This jeep is privately owned and 100% turn-key. Selling only because I have multiple project vehicles and no time to enjoy this one anymore. It’s a great weekend cruiser and gets lots of attention wherever it goes. Truly classic Korean War era jeep that would be a great addition to any collectors line up.

I purchased this jeep from a farm in upstate NY and was my fixer-upper project back in 2009. I have the clean title in-hand, exempt status, antique registered w/ period correct tag, recent oil change, new tires, and only needs a few minor repairs to make it perfect. I have put only 1,500 miles on it since purchased, no accidents, adult owned, garage kept, never seen rain or snow, never off-road, non-smoker and no dents or dings, 46k original miles on drive train. I start it every weekend and take it for a short ride to keep her running. Continue reading
