1954 CJ-3B Jamestown, OH $6800


A flat fender body on an S-10 subframe. I can’t think that  I’ve run across that combo.



“here’s a 1954 willys jeep. The body is all willys, very good condition. A subframe from an s-10 was added, 350 engine and the rear axle is s-10. Can go really fast, but not suggested. Very reliable jeep, fun to drive around. This is a 2 wheel drive vehicle, made to cruise the streets. Drives good, looks good, needs a few minor things (like directional and wipers, although I have everything for that, just haven’t hooked it up) She is fun to drive around, lots of attention when I take her out. Need to make room in the garage so I have to part with it.
serious inquiries only. If you buy it, you’ll be the only one with one like it. Truly one of a kind”

1955 CJ-3B Westbrook, CT $3000


Matt’s made some progress on this 3B project, but he needs to let it go. It has the L-head installed, but he does have the F-head still.


1955-cj3b-westbrook-ma0 1955-cj3b-westbrook-ma1 1955-cj3b-westbrook-ma2 1955-cj3b-westbrook-ma3

“Up for sale I have a 1955 Willys CJ3B project. This is a project that I started and have run out of time for. The chassis is finished…running, driving and stopping including a complete paint job with chassis saver, new shocks, brakes, steering components and a motor tune up. The engine is an earlier flat head (L head) engine rather than the original overhead valve (F head). Still a great running engine. I do have an original F head engine I could swap into it if you really want originality. T90 three speed transmission and D18 transfer case work perfectly. The pto system that is pictured on the frame is no longer on it.

This Jeep is at the point where it needs body and paint work. The body has been patched and strengthened but needs finish welding and grinding to be ready for paint. All of the sheet metal is currently just sitting on the frame nothing is bolted down. It is not drivable the way it sits.

I have 95% of everything for it the only things you need to get are seats, new tires, windshield gasket, hardware such as nuts and bolts and possibly a better tailgate. All of the small parts that arent pictured are in boxes in my garage and I can tell you exactly where everything is.

Body tags are intact and it is sold with a bill of sale only. No title. If you are in CT thats not a problem. If you are interested give me a call or text and I can answer any more questions you may have. I am asking $3000. I have more into the chassis than that. I may consider trades for other early flatfender Jeeps preferably ones with original paint. If the ad is still posted, it is still available. Thank you

Pictures show current state, finished frame and what it looked like before disassembly. “

“1965 Willys/Jeep CJ3B Meyer T5 plow setup (with title). Body and interior are rough, but mechanically sound. Good running F134 engine. Owned for 13+ years. Not road worthy, but reliable plow vehicle. Has PowerTrax lockers installed in both axles. Good base for rock-crawler project. Decent tires. Plow package includes spare parts including two working Hy-Low pumps, spare plow frame, cylinder, and original ElectorLift T5 pump. Also included is a CJ5 rolling chassis (no title) with an F134.

This motor has all new guts. Block was machined by NAPA and has .020 pistons, rods, and replacement crankshaft/bearings. Hasn’t even been broken in yet. Regret not painting the dipped block. Just surface rust though. Also included is a extra F134 engine, and a set of a front and rear axles, transmission and transfer case. Lastly, 3 totes, chucked full of various parts. Package deal sold as is. You have to come get it. LaPorte, IN near Toll Road. Prefer PayPal, cash will do. I’m getting old and the lockers make it too hard to steer without power steering. The hillbilly hardtop keeps the snow off, but I’d rather have heat and a cab… “

1954 CJ-3B Erie, CO $10,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/20/2019) This has VT tags, but never been to VT, which likely means a replacement title of some type.


“Since buying this ’54 Willys CJ-3B in Utah nine years ago, it has been garaged in Colorado (despite the VT tags, it’s never been to VT). It’s rust free and almost completely overhauled. Since I’ve owned it I have made the following improvements: Remanufactured engine, new radiator, new leaf springs, new struts, new fuel pump, new carburetor, new distributor cap and harness, new points, etc. It runs great. I am moving and have too many vehicles. I have a nearly new dove tail trailer (bought it for $2,600 and have put about 2-3 thousand miles on it) that I would sell for $1500 along with the Jeep. I have about $25,000 into this vehicle, including the initial acquisition cost. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty close. This is likely the most mechanically sound stock Willys on the market.”
