(06/15/2011) This looks good.

“1950 Willys CJ3A with 80’s Chevy Camaro 350 V8 and TH350 automatic transmission.

Good:
New Steel Body
Dual Exhaust
Optima Battery
Power Brakes
Upgraded 11″ Drums
Warn Overdrive
Sylvania Halogen Lights
LED Tails and Turn Signals
Winch
Jerry Can Holder
Rear Gate
Power Steering

Fresh Fluids
CB Antenna and Power Source
Bikini Top (Seen Better Days)
Long Travel Leaf Springs
Mag Wheels
33″ Tires
Side Steps

Good Paint
Floor and Cargo Mats
Clean Title
Good Registration

Bad:
Crack in rear right muffler makes a sound when letting off gas. It’s smog exempt. Fix at your own convenience.
Spare not full size.
Windshield wiper motors work, but do not move the arms. I suspect stripped gears. New wipers/motors/arms are $50 each.
Right mirror has some water inside of it and will need to be replaced. The round style mirrors are cheap for a set and will slide right into the holders.
There are a few small screw holes under the new top where the old style Bestop was installed. On the new one they moved the snaps. The benefit is that the new top will fold down like a convertible.”

1951 CJV-35/U Moses Lake, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  Eagle Eyed Bob recognized this as a CJV-35/U rather than a CJ-3A.  **SOLD**

This is supposed to have no rust.

“I had this listed as a 1951 cj 3a. A guy from New York called me and informed me of what I really have. It’s a 1950 Willys CJV-35, and it is for sale. Since it is so rare, I have increased the price to $5500. There were only 1000 of these made in 1950. Check it out on the internet. I am not kidding All original. Flat head 4 cyl, 3 speed tranny, 2 speed transfer case. At one time this vehicle was green. Then some one painted it an ugly salmon color. I have removed a bit of the paint (a mistake), and in places it comes off easily. In other places it is on there pretty good. It runs great and has no rust, no kidding. The tool box under the pasenger seat is solid, as are the floor boards and the floor under the rubber mat in the back. It comes with a roll bar and high back bucket seats and a tow bar. I took these three items off the vehicle, for they are not stock equipment. It has a heater that works. Unfortunately, someone put an AM radio in the dash ( a really dumb move in my opinion), but they did an ok job of it and it works. ‘.”

Also, it is still 6 volt, and it has the plates on the dash from the Willys Overland Corporation. They’re pretty cool. Come check it out.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(09/30/2009) Here’s a nice looking CJ-3A.  It’s got an unusual cage.

“This is a 1949 Willys CJ3A with a rebuilt F-Head motor (not a flat head) out of a 1956 CJ3B.  T90 3 speed and a Dana 18 Transfer Case.  Dana 27 Front End and a Dana 44 Rear (welded for a locker) 5.38 gears. Custom 6 point Roll Cage out of 1.5″ DOM tubing. New Best Top Soft Top and Doors plus a Bikini Top …. Turn key and ready for a weekend in the woods!! The only thing that could be done is a new carborator because the 60 year old one leaks a little. Wanted to put the $100 upgrade solex carborator in it but just don’t have the time. Also, there is some rust in the bottom of the tub but again, not bad for the year.”

1963 Flattie Covington, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500

“This is a fun, mechanically solid trail jeep. It has been on almost every trail in Washington and every sand dune in Oregon, so it has some issues. I have alway driving this Jeep hard but not to the breaking point. After every trip this Jeep got a good cleaning, fluids checked then got it ready for the next trip before putting it away. It drives pretty good on the street, but with the rear spool and no turnsignals and no full top, it is not a daily driver.

“Jeep 1949 Willys with canvas seats and top. Was restored in 1996 and has a 4 cylinder Buick in the place of the L head Jeep engine it was born with. When this was king speed limit was 45 on all Florida roads. It was made for 45 and below and is lots of fun there. Has towbar and can pull trailers easily. In low range you can idle through about anything. This is a dirt road, forest road loving vehicle and has WARN hubs. Everything works fine but needs the brakes adjusted by hand if you enjoy stopping.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500

(09/06/2010) In many respects this looks good, but there were a couple issues that caught my eye.  The rear bumper is strangely bent downwards and in the front, a cross piece has been welded on top of the frame and the driver’s side frame rail has been welded and drilled.  So, I’d check this frame out closely as it has some miles on it.

“Here is a 1952 Willys Jeep CJ3A painted in military era green with the original flathead 4 cylinder.  This vehicle has been mechanically restored and rebuilt.  It runs very well, shifts great, and starts on the first try ever single time.  Restoration includes:

1950 CJ-3A Mesa, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000

(05/20/2011) The seller mentions this might be an old fire jeep, but the seller has no evidence of this.

“This is a near perfect example of a 1950 CJ3A. I bought it in Fresno Ca (still has the black CA plates but also has clear AZ title and plates) now my Son says “no you can’t take the grandaughter in that” and my big old belly rubs the steering wheel. So I am looking for a Jeep Wrangler or Polaris Ranger or something even more stable. This jeep has 18,000 miles on it, the only modifications from stock are: conversion to 12 V, roll bar, bikini top, k&n Air filiter, 5 new tires/rims (have stock rims), tow bar in front. There is absolutely no rust on this jeep, has a plate covering the hole in the left front fender where the siren went. has one dent in the left rear fender well, no other significant body damage. I don’t know if there is a problem with the charging system or ? but when the battery is charged this thing runs like a singer sewing machine. Top speed is less than 50 MPH. The brakes suck. as with all old jeeps the front brakes have thier issues, they work (sometimes too well) and try to lock up the front tires. After I bought this I showed it to my cousin in Bakersfield who is a retired Kern county Fire Capt. He stated that many of the county fire departments had these old jeeps for small back country fires but that they really weren’t used much. This is the only reason this old a jeep could be in this good of a condition with this low of miles. She is a beauty with absolutely no rust.

I really thought this would be such a hoot to take my granddaughter four wheeling in but; The Son says no, so she’s got to go..”

1949 CJ-3A Tacoma, Wa $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available

(01/03/2011) This looks real nice.  The pics looks like they were taken on Tacoma’s north side which is bounded by South Puget Sound.

I worked for a short time near where these photos were taken at C.I. Shenanigans before going back to College to complete my undergrad degree at UPS. I knew the waterfront well, as I spent a lot of time riding my bike along the waterfront and into one of nicest city parks in the nation, Point Defiance Park.

“took this in part trade for a restored Model AA truck in 2009. I used it a couple of times but now I need my garage space back. This things a real hoot. Very smooth and quiet running. No squeaks or rattles. A great example of an unmolested jeep. What grabbed me was, it’s like a time machine, it’s upgraded with the stuff we used in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s. Has parts catalogues from early 70’s is seat storage compartment. It’s almost like it was parked in 1972 and found in 2009.

Has an unusual working winch with dual solenoids and Aux. light, removable tow bar, Solex carb, extra mounted coil, CB, converted to 12 volt (with alternator), wider tires and rims, rear swing away spare tire mount, full top, turn indicators.

Engine has had complete rebuild including stainless steel valves and hardened seats for unleaded gas. I added more out of habit, a new battery, HD shocks, plugs, NOS emergency brake shoes and oil change. I’ve encountered no problems with anything.

I joined my old high school friend and jeep nut from 40 yrs. ago on a camping trip in the cascades last summer with his family. Everyone had a ball using the jeep for getting more ice and marshmallows, driving around the campsite, and exploring logging roads with the grand kids. I’d forgotten how low geared, quiet and sure-footed these rigs were.

E-mail or Call Mike 253-219-1607.”
