View all the information on eBay





“1949 Willys CJ3A Fire Engine Jeep. This is a Boyer conversion. This jeep is very complete, original, and unrestored. This jeep has less less than 3200 miles on the odometer. Lots of the original accessories are still place. I understand that some of the nozzles are collectible.

The jeep has been in long term storage since it was taken out of service in 1980. The jeep is not currently running but the engine is not stuck. It will turn over by hand. The jeep was driven into the storage building that I found it in. I bought this jeep from the first civilian owner. Since this is an all original jeep, I have done nothing to it. I have not even washed the nearly 40 years of dust off of it. You are getting a very complete and untouched original fire engine jeep here.

I’ve seen another wide brim fiberglass tub from the northeast similar to this, but have yet to know who was building them.

“Up for sale is a Willys Jeep CJ2A fiberglass tub and a soft top to go with it. The tub is used, but in really nice condition. The soft top is vinyl, made by besttop, has the bows, doors, and the hardware to go with it. The top does need some cleaning, but not in terrible shape. If you have been looking for these items then you know what they go for new (not cheap). I also have other CJ2A parts. If you are interested in any of those let me know what your needs are and I can let you know what I have. This is a cash only deal.”

1951 CJ-3A Harrison, ID $15,000


Maybe it is just me, but don’t those look like custom made front fenders?  The corner bends seem too crisp.

1953 CJ-3A JeepRod Queen Creek, AZ $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Jeep Rods • TAGS: .

Has some unusual mods.

“Runs great! I personally have changed the speakers, radio, alternator, battery, window, brake booster, and the brake proportioning valve. It’s a kit car, it has the body of a 53 jeep willys and the engine is a 2005 ford mustang. It’s my daily driver and I take it offroading. It’s very good with offroading and on the street. It is registered as an ATV so the insurance is very cheap and it is registered for both street and offroading. Automatic. Clean title clean everything. 3000 or OBO or a trade for anything reasonable. Nothing is wrong with it just looking forward don’t only want 2 seats so I can hang with more friends and something with better gas mileage. It gets pretty good gas mileage. On a full tank of gas it’ll take about a week and half til empty.”
