1949 CJ-3A Castalian Springs, TN $800


If the engine is good, there’s some value, but not a whole lot.


“Got an old flatty that needs a new home. As it sits it’s basically a rolling chassis with axles, tranny, and t case. It comes with an engine that will need to be built, can round up a windshield and tailgate for it if you like. Rusty with scabbed in floors like most of these that you run across these days.”

“1951 CJ3 Jeep Restored ~This is a factory 225 Dauntless V6 engine with lots of power this is a three speed transmission, we never tried the 4 wheel drive, the jeep starts right up and drives like would expect a vintage jeep, it does have power steering added but not power brakes. There’s a lot of new parts including brakes, all lights, alternator radiator shocks belts gas tank etc, all the canvas is brand new and easily removable in a few minutes, includes 2 new canvas doors, newer seats with seat belts battery garage kept and was only in the rain by mistake for 5 minutes since restored,

we purchased this as a prop for our business and now we are moving on, this jeep is a real eye catcher at any event, certainly not a smooth ride like a new jeep but a lot of fun to drive.The gauges are not entirely hooked up, all the lights work including the 4 ways, the horn works as well. There is no rust, it has tow loops on front bumper and easy to remove tail gate… if wanted there is also mounts and latch to ad rear seat.”

Year? CJ-3A Yerington, NV $3500


Seller’s friend describes this as a 1956 “Willys D1”. It appears to be a CJ-3A with an incorrect year.


“Selling for a friend. It is not a Cherokee it is a Willys D1. Facebook will not accept the Willys Make in the field. It has been looked at by 2 mechanics and “runs really good for its age.” It has been sitting a long time and just smokes a little but just needs to run for a while. Major cosmetic defects. It is a fixer-upper. Mileage unknown”

“1949 3A Willys Jeep. Has GO Devil. 134 cubic inch with 60 HP. Very nice Jeep and loved att the car shows. I also run in local parades and run around town locally. She runs great. Never in the rain or snow. Original body as you can see was gone so I went south for another body. Jeep has 12 volt 3 wire GM alt. and charging and lights are no problem. Also installed electronic ignition recentlyalong with Warn front hubs.
She still needs a few things like a set of leaf springs as these are getting weak and a 2nd gear sycronizer. It will pop out of second when down shifting but pulls fine. Easy fixes. Prices came from Hemmings. Never thought I would sell but health forces me to.She is not perfect but very nice.”
