1954 CJ-3B Cayce, SC $4800


Runs and drives.

“1954 Jeep CJ-3b 4 wd
Not a museum piece but a very nice CJ3b.
Solid, absolutely undamaged, rust-free frame. Rust in the body has been removed and/or treated. Everything possible original that could be repaired and saved has been. I believe in retaining every bit of original content possible.
Original engine, runs great.
Extremely original content CJ3b with high degree of original, working, parts. Still has the original tailgate chains, gauges (working), rear view mirror, seat frames (new correct, cushions), all five original rims,
radiator, engine, trans, windshield (perfect), windshield latches, vacuum wiper motor (works), parking brake system (works), dash data plate, original, working, heater.
Many new bits, all wiring replaced, electrical converted to 12 volts with new alternator,
entire brake system replaced including lines. Entire fuel system replaced from gas tank to the carburetor. New carburetor, fuel pump, lines, and tank.
You don’t have to fight all the sixty year-old rusted fasteners. I have done that. Almost every fastener has been removed, rust treated or replaced, oiled, and reinstalled.
You don’t have to treat the rust, seal the tight areas with 3m 8115, or fill all the pinholes I have done that.
Of course there is still more to do if you like wrenching your own, it’s an old Jeep.
South Carolina title in my name. Cash only, no trades.”

1954 CJ-3B Boydton, VA $8000


Seller got this fixed up, but has some physical problems entering and exiting.

“I bought this a few years ago, the engine had just been overhauled and had about 100 miles on it. I sent it out and had the entire thing gone over. New generator, starter, regulator, entire brake system, New seals bearings on drive train, tires, glass, spare tire and holder, and the list goes on. It is all original. Door panels and seats already done. New glass, but I need to install it, also has a soft top. Drives great and runs even better. I did the entire Jeep in Black and red because I was going to keep it. You can paint it whatever color you want.
After putting the doors back on I found I can’t get in or out of it as I am handicapped. Will trade for an antique car with running boards, or a UTV for the grandkids.”

1954 CJ-3B Blacksburg, VA $17,000


UPDATE: Still Available

Has some updates.

I am selling an amazing jeep that has been a project for my dad and I for many years. It has never been kept outside and has only been driven on sunny days. The paint is top notch. The underbody and inside the jeep is sprayed with maroon bedliner to match the outside. All work has been done by a professional body shop/mechanic. This jeep has tons of power and is a blast to drive. You can not drive it without turning heads. 
It has a Hurst Shifter, chevy engine, Muncy Transmission, Dick Cepek Tires and much more. We have put much more money into the jeep than we are asking. We both have just moved on to wanting the money for something different. 

Here is a link of a video that was done on this jeep:


-GM 350 Small Block
-Aluminum Intake
-4 Barrel 
-Engine has been overhauled
-New Cams, Lifters and Rods
-Blow Proof Bell Housing”

UPDATE: Still Available

This 3B looks ready for the hills.

Willy CJ3B Vin 454GB236847 Asking price $17,000.00
Engine original 4cycle “F” head
The ultimate 1950’s adventure package with all the vintage aftermarket additions; Sears aluminum cab, Braden power take-off winch with half inch cable, Warren hubs, 2nd gas tank under the passengers seat, and block heater. Includes a Bantam Trailer Corp. munitions type trailer, originally designed with the same wheels and rims to pair with the CJ. This trailer has a fabricated aluminum covered top. There are a total of 8 original rims with vintage bias-ply tube tires in great condition. Other additions include removable rear seat, handy man jack, CB radio set (with 12 to 6 volt converter), spotlight, conventional AM radio, vintage metal ice chest, and 7 vintage metal jerry cans. The vehicle spent more than fifty of it’s years living in the comfort of a garage. The upholstery is in great shape but the foam liner on the inside of cab has deteriorated.
The engine was rebuilt in 1963 by a precision motor shop in Denver where it had the crankshaft plated in hard chrome, all the moving parts were matched and balanced. In 1979 both the front and rear axles were fitted with positraction differentials. The original spider gear parts are still in good shape and included with jeep. A full set of chains is also included. The performance of The Little Red Jeep with positraction and chains in difficult situations is very impressive.”
