“Just for heck of it I’m listing my 1952 Willys CJ3A Jeep for trade consideration. The price is basically a “ballpark value” measuring tool. I’m just listing for trade vehicles I may want more than my Jeep, NOT because I need to sell or don’t like my Jeep. It is getting harder to drive as I’m getting older and would like a toy (JEEP ) that’s easier to drive, which will make sense if you read my trade list below.

UPDATE: just installed rear fender flares.

Rebuilt 1979 Pontiac 2.5 Iron Duke 4 cylinder with a little over 30,000 on it.
Rebuilt T14 3 spd
Overhauled D18 transfer case with rebuilt Warn overdrive.
Original front/ rear differentuals with 5.38 gear ratio.
Rebuilt Saginaw manual steering.
11 inch drum brakes.
Have new master cylinder to be installed (old one works, seeps a little)
Warn locking hubs.

1950 CJ-3A Clovis, CA **SOLD**

(10/16/2018) Rob’s selling his nice looking 3A named “Scout” with a set of beautiful Free-Lock hubs.

“his CJ-3A, affectionately known as “Scout,” was born in 1950. Having spent the majority of its life on a mountain property in Mariposa, CA; this Willys Jeep has always been 100% free from any rot, cancer, or structural rust.

After a lengthy search for the right era-stock 3A, in 2012 I purchased Scout from its second California owner. Shortly thereafter, I found another unit that had a freshly rebuilt drivetrain (less than 20 hours), so I purchased it too and combined our solid rust-free Scout with the fresh heart and axles of the donor.

As I have a hard time leaving well enough alone, your new Willys will come with $10,723.51 in parts receipts, including the new “Herm the Overdrive Guy” 30% overdrive! Yes, everything works as designed. Every gauge, headlight, taillight, and parking light; even the factory high beam indicator and map light glow proudly on the dash. The transmission and transfer case shift with a positive engagement rarely found in Jeeps of this era. The engine starts right up, hot or cold, and purrs like a kitten at 180 degrees; always. The custom receiver hitch is ready to haul your boat to the pond. And if worse comes to worse, the Bellview/Warn winch powered by a custom 6/12v battery system stands at the ready.

1950 CJ-3A Lyles, TN $14,000


This is an interesting build. I thought it might be a DJ delivery body, but it does appear to be a 3A body. I’d say those front fenders are custom. The front frame rails have been extended.


“This is a fully restored 1950 Willys Jeep. Really awesome vehicle for any Jeep enthusiast! Original Drivetrain!”

“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.
