1953 CJ-3B Sandpoint, ID $4900


This may make a good restoration candidate.

1953 willys cj3b, first year for the “high hood”. Runs, drives, stops. New master cylinder, wheel cylinders, and linings. Still needs some tuning up. Most everything works and all stock and original, now is 12 volt. 99% rust free. Drive as is or would be a perfect platform for a restoration. These early “flatties” are very hard to find this original, solid and complete. “

Year? CJ-3B Port Byron, IL $4200


The drains holes have been filled.

You’re looking at a really nice Willys Jeep CJ3B. The jeep is in overall great shape. It has the 3-speed transmission with hi-lo shifter as well as 2wd-4wd shifter. Runs & drives good. Clutch is good. Shifts properly and stays in gear. 4-wheel drive works as it should. Brakes all gone through, body and frame in excellent condition, new gas tank, new seat cushions & covers, newer battery, suspension gone through, and a fresh coat of paint. A couple of the gauges aren’t working, but otherwise everything works as it should. The body doesn’t look the greatest (lots of dents and dings), but it is rust free and painted. New floor pans, body mounts etc., were installed before the paint job. The frame is also remarkably rust free. Tires are like new. Hope to get all the fluids and gear lubes changed in the coming weeks, but if I don’t, I’ll include all the gear lube I bought for it. Also comes with a box full of spare parts and a spare tire/wheel that hasn’t been restored yet.

Have 3 other jeeps in my garage that I’m working on right now, and I need to make room before winter! Asking $4,200, but won’t refuse a reasonable offer.”

1953 CJ-3B Sahuarita, AZ $4500


Brakes need some work.

I have a 53 CJ3b Willys jeep. Original engine. starts and runs good. It has aftermarket air filter and fuel pump. I have the originals and are in working order. The seats are aftermarket. Tires are in good shape. This could be a nice jeep for someone that can put the time in.

The breaks could use some work and the clutch is at the end of it’s life. 

Id be interested in a trade for a side x side or other reasonable trades”

1953-cj3b-dunn-nc1 1953-cj3b-dunn-nc2

1953 Willys CJ3B for sale. It is a project very near completion. I was going to build this into a crawler and beach vehicle.

The Good-
The body and frame have some surface rust but are solid. The F134 4 cylinder engine is original and has 130K miles on it. It ran 2 weeks ago when I finished wiring the ignition. The Carter carburetor was rebuilt a few months ago. The 12V alternator is brand new. The transmission is a NP435 6.68:1 first gear from Novak Adapters(http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/np435.htm) this with the adapters was around $2500 the transmission is rebuilt but if you looked at it its brand new. Novak did a leak down test before shipping. The transfer case is a Dana 18 2.46:1 low range. It was rebuilt before bolting it up to the transmission. The axles are Dana 25 and Dana 44 the gearing is 5.38. The final drive in low range in this is 88.4:1 plenty to crawl. The wiring harness is about 2 weeks old also.
