“Selling my 1953 Willy’s Jeep, its a CJ3B first year of the high hood model. This jeep starts right up, drives all day, its not a corvette but it will climb over one! It does have the original motor and transmission, transfer case, most of the wiring is original. This jeep is more than 60 years old so it does need some TLC, it needs brake line and/or the brake master cylinder fixed and a couple of the gauges (which are all original) also need some attention, needs new windshield wipers (front glass is near perfect) and driver side mirror. There is very little rust and no cancer that I have found. It has two new tires on the rear and comes with a spare carburetor and a new carburetor kit for it. New battery, original oil filter etc, etc, etc.

1953 CJ-3B Buffalo, NY $700


Engine is stuck.

“Howdy Folks, Up for sale is whats left of a 1953 Willys CJ3B. Its someones doodle bug project. Not sure what his plan was. What I do know is it has a F head engine that is stuck. Has a three speed transmission attached to a high low transfer case. The frame is bobbed just in front of the rear arch and the rear axel is welded to it.

What is interesting is the two unusual power take offs. One on the back of the transmission and another dozer gear running off the parking brake drum. I have a pallet of spare parts that go with, like extra head, transmission, transfer case, some sheet metal.”

1979 Mitsubishi J-54 Dover, DE No Price


Looks good.

“Here is a 1979 Mitsubishi J54 Diesel, Mitsubishi continued to manufacture the J54 ( CJ-3B ) after Jeep had discontinued production. The J54 has the 4DR5 (4 cyl. diesel motor) lots of torque and great gas mileage, and still looking really cool. 4×4 as every jeep should be combined with the diesel will let you go anywhere. It has a Dana 44 rear and Dana 30 front with 4.77 gears packed inside.

The Jeep comes with Delaware state title, Japanese export title, and Japanese regular title. This vehicle if federally legal due to the 25 year rule which makes these gems importable.

The Jeep comes with the original style wheels and tires, does not include the 31’s in the pictures. Customs will not allow for anything to be in the vehicle during shipping.

27k km original kilometers on the odometer, (that’s only 16777 miles)
Right hand drive, (not because it was a mail jeep but because it is a Japanese vehicle)
4 speed manual
Twin stick transfer case
Original style wheels and tires (can fit 31’s without lift, if you want to take away from the originality)
Good top with no leaks.

1960 CJ-3B Cleveland, MS $1000


Not running at the moment.

“1960 Jeep CJ-3B in restorable condition. I bought it a couple of months ago and don’t have time for this project. It was running 4 years ago, but the gas tank rusted out. It has been stored inside for 4 years. I bought a new battery, fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel pressure regulator. I hooked up the battery and spun the motor over, but haven’t had time to mess with it since. The 3B was the only Jeep made with the tall grill and hood. It has the Hurricane straight four cylinder.”

“I’m selling my dad’s 53 Willys Jeep. It has a 327 Chevy V-8, Dana 44 rear axle, Warn overdrive, full cage, soft top with doors, new battery, newer 31″ tires, fiberglass tub, and a heater. My dad passed away last month, and due to his health he really maybe drove it 100 miles in the last 5 years. It runs and drives great. It fired right up today and i drove it with no mechanical issues. He was a mechanic by trade, so he was meticulous with his rides anyhow.”

(12/08/2014) Might be worth a look given there are two jeeps, but both look rough.

1954 CJ-3B Bend, OR $4200


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/06/2014) It might be worth a look.

“My ’54 is numbers-matching and pretty much all original from stem to stern. It has 66764 miles and has spent all it’s life in Montana and Oregon. It has been driven a mere 1800 miles since 1993. It is equipped with a Koenig Model 330 all-steel cab and Koenig PTO King Winch Model 151J (the PTO is not connected for some reason). And it has a HEATER!!

The engine runs well. 6V battery is new. Clutch, exhaust, shocks, tires, and brakes have low miles on them– however due to lack of use the brakes need some attention. I added fluid and replaced both front brake hoses– and then the weather hit and I set the project aside. Lights also want a little help. Gauges mostly work. One broken piece of (flat) cab glass left-rear.

The Jeep was originally red. At some point it was re-painted red by hand and has great patina. Yes, there is rust– but I’m going to call it ‘average’. Oregon title is clean.
I can send pix– but come take a look! I’m just west of Pilot Butte….”

1953 CJ-3B Delhi, NY $3700


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3700.

(08/23/2014) Looks like a solid 3B. Nice vintage hardtop.

Runs well, engine in great condition, hard top. Parked in the barn.

Many photos: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tivhecdzz684xx2/AADh6MGuOAYf1HBDFKZ7vVYVa
I’ve owned this jeep for three years, purchased from a filmmaker/collector here locally who has several willys. I’m not sure how long he had it prior, but I got the distinct impression he’s committed to these vehicles. He has specific shops in Treadwell and Morris that he trusts to work on these (Morris is an hour away from here, which says something.)

I could not speak with certainty on the engine being original– I do know he had it machined and tuned just prior to my acquisition. The carb was also rebuilt.

The brakes seem to be in good condition. The top is in good condition minus a couple chips in the rim. All glass is in good condition (the side windows do not roll down). There is no handle on the passenger door.

The floor pans had been repaired in the past– plates added– they’re adequate but it could be prettier. There are a few rust holes. The toolbox is pretty rusty and has a few holes.

The frame looks good.
It has most certainly been repainted– I couldn’t say what the original color was.
New battery this spring. The wiring needs the turn signals and brake lights sorted out.
Runs very well and strong. Front wheel 4WD locks move well without a tool.

I deregistered it last year as I was fundamentally using it on the farm (to move firewood, and rarely) and didn’t want to pay insurance. I have the papers for easy transfer.

Quite simply, this jeep has gotten little use since I got it– housed in the barn, battery changed, rewiring started, oil changed. I’d keep it if we didn’t need to cover some unexpected expenses.”

1959 CJ-3B Project Augusta, WV $950


UPDATE: Still Available

(11/23/2014) Includes a PTO and an aluminum top.

“I was rebuilding this and got a code violation in Arlington and had to stop. The body is rusted out but this is a really solid foundation for building a nice classic rig. Set up with Rancho springs and shackles, Saginaw steering, T98 four speed transmission with granny low, and bellhousing adapter/motor mounts for small block Chevy. I let my grandson pretend-drive and now the tranny won’t go into reverse, first, or second, so there is little value there. Has plastic gas tank and original gauges. Roll bar is fine. Front axle ring/pinion are broken but it rolls with hubs unlocked and driveshaft off, but needs rebuilding or replacing with a Dana 30. Has nice vintage aluminum wheels.

The real values here include:
– Rear axle is a shortened Ford 9 inch with Detroit Locker, Moser axles, and 11 inch drums. 3.73 ratio
– Ramsay PTO winch running off of Dana 18 transfer case
– Clean title with data plates on dash

Can be flat towed with included tow bar that I put on to get it out of Arlington.

I also have all other parts for a complete rebuild that I would include for the right price. Includes brand new body plus vintage body parts with Willys script; rebuilt Chevy 350 4-bolt main, aluminum heads, super torque cam; new Centerforce clutch; and aluminum top. ”

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.”
