1951 CJ-3A Cohasset, MA **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $10,000.

(04/16/2019) Has a patched passenger floor. Has a shutoff switch at the battery.

“(text from 12/2019 ad) … 1951 CJ3A bought 4 years ago and had it completely gone through mechanically, new shocks, bushings, tires, frame cleaned up and painted. I left everything else original as I bought it. Fires up every time, drives straight as an arrow and can get up to 60mph. There are just a few minor things that need tending to that I’ll be working on: needs fuel pump gasket, exhaust tip needs to be tacked back in place, and pops out of second gear. Has really been a great Jeep but our family is growing and it’s time. Let me know if you have any questions or need anymore pics.”

2 CJ-2As and a CJ-3A Winso, GA $900


This looks like a good price.


jeeps-winsto-ga1 jeeps-winsto-ga2 jeeps-winsto-ga3

“Don’t get excited, they don’t run . . yet. Three vintage early CJ jeeps, all Willys, two CJ2As and one CJ3A. What you see is what you get.
I purchased these three at different times from different sources and was going to get one running “Sarge” jeep for parades and events. Believe enough parts are here to get close to that. But another jeep came my way that will accomplish that purpose and these three can go to a good home.
All three motors turn, not stuck, but have not attempted to start, some do not have manifolds and carbs. Again, my intent was to get one out of three, that’s why I’m sell all three as a lot. $900 takes them all and any loose parts I can find laying around.
The 3A has a L134 engine with a Supersonic head on it and a carb and is the closest to running and the most complete body. One 2A has a Willys L134 motor and the other has a Willys L134 Industrial engine. All three have T90 transmissions and one has a PTO winch mounted on the front bumper.

I have fork lift to assit with loading but if you want to push them or winch them onto your trailer, we might have to switch some tires and wheels around to get rollers.”
