1960 CJ-3B Elizabeth, CO $8500


The Hudson Steering upgrade sure was popular in Colorado. Great looking 3B.

I am selling my 1960 CJ3B jeep which I bought from the original owner about 20 years ago. Jeep is all original except it has hudson steering added which makes the jeep steer like power steering. Original F-head engine and running gear with 5:38 gear ratio. It has a aftermarket carburetor but I do have the original. It also has a koenig PTO winch and Hella driving lights. Jeep was painted about 15 years ago to its original red color and still looks great as I store it inside. Wheels,windshield frame,gear shift covers, etc. have been powder coated. Also included are 4 studded tire chains and a bikini top. I hate to sell my jeep but just do not use it anymore. These CJ3B’s are highly sought after and getting hard to find. No low ballers or dealers. Thank You”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6500.

This appears to have a 3B Fiberglass Bobcat body.  It includes an overdrive.

“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.”

(09/10/2014) Runs and drives.

Looking to sell or trade my 1953 flat fender Willy’s Jeep CJ3B, this is the first year of the “high hood” models. Starts and runs like a champ! Has clear Nevada title, I have only had this jeep for a couple of months, was going to make a desert crawler out of it, but decided to move to another project. Comes with 4 additional tires that were on the Jeep when I got it, they are an odd sized tires but equivalent to 35″x10.50×15″. Currently has two new tires on the rear, just put them on it 5 days ago. Has a 12,000 pound rated winch on the front. Also just got a tune up, new plugs, wires, oil filter, oil, etc. will also come with a new carb kit for the carb that is on it. The gauges and lights need some work but everything is there, and it does have the military wiring. Many extra’s with this Jeep. “

1954 CJ-3B & Trailer Black Hawk, CO $17,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, trailer • TAGS: , , .

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.”

1961 CJ-3B Front Royal, VA $1450


It runs, but needs work to be road worthy.

61 Jeep CJ3B. Engine and drive train are ok but the body needs replacing. Mileage on odometer is 42,000 and believed to be correct. This Jeep has spent the last 23 years sitting outside. Will start right up when the carburetor is primed but is not roadworthy. The frame and underpinnings are solid making this a great restoration project. Other than the 31″ rims and 2″ lift it is original. I have new brake lines and carburetor that will convey. All parts are available through KaiserWillys.com. To many projects so this one has to go. Is registered and I have a clean title. “

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. “
