“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.”

“I have decided to sale my Jeep I purchased with the sole purpose of running the Rubicon as it was on my bucket list. Which I did in 2016.
Below are most of the upgrades done to the Jeep to make it happen and a few pictures of the jeep on the trail. Since the Rubicon trip the jeep has pretty much sat in the garage and its time for it to make room for my next bucket list project. (Which is to rebuild my first new vehicle I purchased in 1980. A 1980 CJ7.)
Here are the stats:
1. 1953 CJ3a very little rust and surface only.
2. V6 Dauntless with distributor upgraded to electronic. The was professional rebuilt and only a few thousand on it since. Come bring a compression tester or use mine. This is a nice motor.
3. SM420 4 speed with the nice 7 to 1 granny first. Rebuilt but only had 50k on it when I purchased it. Continue reading
