(07/2016) Looks rough.

“I have a 1953 jeep Willys CJ3B for sale. It’s not in the best shape, but I bought it off of a lady who let is sit for 27 years so that’s to be expected. My original plan was to restore is, but an opportunity has come up that I need some cash for. This is a very rare, one of a kind jeep. this jeep does have the hard top with it that is very rare. It also has the spare tire carrier that mounts to the side with the spare rim. All the rims are original with new tires mounted on them. I currently have the engine pulled for inspection. After opening it up I see that it is able to be rebuilt, but it will take some time and patience and most of it will need replaced. The engine has a little bit over 46,000 miles on it. The body needs some work also. It has no floors and the sides need to be patched in some places and completely replaced in others. I do have a new 4 x 8 foot sheet of 16 gauge thick steel that I will sell with it to make body panels out of. All the brake drums are freed up and it does roll and the steering works so you can move it easily. This jeep is a project, but if you have been looking for a jeep project, then its perfect. All the gauges are in it and in decent shape also. If you have any questions or are interested feel free to email me, thanks.”

Year? CJ-3B Toledo, OH $8000


Doug spotted this former Shriner’s jeep. It’s listed as a 1953, but it appears to be a post 1956 3B.

“53 Willys CJ3B 90% original.has a very well maintained newer top and doors.10,000 original miles it was a parade vehicle the majority of its life.Has a 2.2L hurricane engine with a Warner T-90 3 speed transmission, Spicer 18 2 speed transfercase,Dana/Spicer 25 front axle, and a Dana/Spicer 44 rear axle. The body is in great shape for a 53,it does have some minor rust spot. The floor pans and the frame have some surface rust but that’s it. Runs and drives great and is a blast the dri”

1954/55 CJ-3B Battle Ground, WA $7500


Does not run at the moment. Sounds like it could be something simple.

“This was my dad’s vehicle. It has been 1 owner, and used as a work vehicle for many years in a sawmill. I don’t know a lot about it. Dad bought it in ’54/’55. It has a period motor, though not original. It ran when I got it, then the throttle cable – choke (?) broke and I have not tried to restart.
It has the frame for the soft top, but not the top. Front seats have been recovered. Has a box full of parts. It has had some body work done – such as replacing a fender. It comes with a utility trailer made from and old Willy truck bed I believe. Hard to part with as it was my dads who passed away, but it should be restored vs. sitting and rusting away. My hope was to have it restored, but not being able to work no it myself, it was too cost prohibitive.

I probably won’t be a wealth of knowledge on it, but ask anything and I’ll do my best! I will try to get a picture of the engine in a few days. The colorized pic is from several years ago when a friend cleaned it up. It does stay undercover and under tarp, but it needs more protection that that I feel.

Title should not be hard to transfer. I have what I need (I hope) from my dad’s paperwork. If not a local pick-up/ haul, you will need to arrange and pay cost of transport. I can easily be available to meet.”

3 CJ-3Bs & A Trailer Portsmouth, NH $2400


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2400.

Looks like there’s value here.

“Time to get your restoration going, just in time for fall. I have decided to move on from this hobby and am selling all. I have two CJ3B’s in Portsmouth, the third is in Washington NH with the Car Trailer.

In Portsmouth:
1953 CJ3B Green with Cap and Plow- The motor was seized so has been sitting with Marvel Mystery Oil to free it up. This could be a great plow truck or candidate for restoration has a rare middle seat addition.

1963 CJ3B Red Mahindra Jeep. I had this running off a small fuel can, but the starter seized up so currently is not running. Someone before me spent a lot of time with the Body Filler. This would be a good restoration base or with a little work on the road now.

In Washington:
1955 Willy’s CJ3B this was a restoration project that started with a motor swap. A running motor was swapped in and the project stalled. Has now been sitting for ten years, Could be restored with the right hands.

Single place car trailer with brakes. The right front hub was seized up and it will need some tires. Has been sitting for a year with no use in five before that.

I also have some new parts: Tune up kit, Fuel lines, Hood Welting, Hood Blocks

I have two or three bins of other parts from various restoration projects. Some of these parts are in my garage in Greenland.”

1953 CJ-3B Plymouth, MA $10,000


It’s an ex-Forest Service jeep.

“1953 Willys CJ3B Jeep. Jeep was formally a US Forestry Service Fire Jeep in South Dakota. It has spent its entire life garaged and only has 7,000 miles on the odometer. It is completely original except for changes made by US Forestry service. The original green paint is showing through some areas were the fire truck red has oxidized. There is zero rust on this Jeep. The frame still shows original black paint.

I have done some resurrection work since I’ve owned it. Major items include: seals and gaskets on transmission and transfer case, rear main seal, clutch disk and pressure plate, radiator re-core, brake drums and shoes, knuckle seals, carburetor rebuild, fuel tank and sending unit, hoses, water pump, points, cap, rotor, coil, battery, generator rebuild. I have heaps of spare parts (repro and NOS) that will go with it. Price is firm, no offers please. This is a real “time warp” machine and I hope the new owner will preserve it as it is.”

1948? CJ-2A-Wagon? Denver, CO $6999

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

I really had to stare at this one for a while. I *think* this is might be a 2A with some 3B and wagon parts. But, it also has full floaters in the rear. I like the “original” flathead engine that is actually an f-head.

“1948 Willys Jeep with flat head 4 cyc original engine, manual, 4×4, all matching numbers…. this jeep has plowed our snow for years….”

“Clear Texas Title in my name and in-hand! This Jeep is ready for the ranch or deer lease. It is not currently street legal, but can be with a little work. It is also not a candidate for a Concours restoration in my opinion, but you would have to make that decision yourself. If still interested, keep reading. . .
