UPDATE: Still Available.
(04/05/2015) Has many updates.
“You feel that… its Summer right around the corner. Tired of being left behind on the trails? Getting no looks driving around in your weak rig? Looking to make strangers come talk to you. Well, maybe the last part isn’t too go. But it happens when you are driving a rig that NO-ONE else has.
For sale is my 1953 Willys CJ3B.
Very cool “high hood” that has a lot of new and old going for it.
Sadly, I just don’t have the time to drive it anymore. The price is firm at $6k. I have far, FAR more in it, but it is time for me to move on.
The car is a solid driver, a beast off road and runs like clock-work- but I will note, it does need a new head-gasket (price is adjusted to reflect repair)
Here are the specks and pics- let me know if you are interested and we can arrange viewing / test drive / etc.
UPDATE: Still Available.
(02/07/2015) Still needs some work.
“1953 Willys CJ3B, rare / unique High Hood model jeep. Body is very good. Frame is very good. On road / off road hobby project. Don’t call expecting perfection, this is a work in progress. Have completed lot’s of work to it. 302 V-8 engine runs, but not roadworthy at this stage. Three speed transmission ( I have a lead on an automatic to swap in if I keep it), dual exhaust, headers. Lock-out hubs. Tires are there, but not very good. (I have a very good set of Thornbird 35×14.50×15’s for sale, $1000.00, OBO). Overall, jeep needs little more TLC. No top, no doors.
New parts: brake shoes, wheel cylinders, some brake lines, thermostat, headlights,Optima Red Top battery, Champion 9500 lb. winch (never been used, period), with wired remote.
Racing seats installed. Rhino liner applied to interior. Floorboards cut out and replaced.
Buyer could take the jeep body off and replace it with an early Bronco body, which would probably double it’s value, then sell the jeep body or put it on a jeep frame.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.
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.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $900.
(06/10/2015) It’s a project.
“Awesome 1954 Willy Jeep project for sale, $1,200. Title. Engine cranks over fine. No 101 bs questions or other Craigslist nonsense please- if you are genuinely interested in buying this Jeep, just come out & look.”
David’s selling his nice looking CJ-3B. I’ve seen this one up close during my visit with him earlier this year. It’s as solid as it looks in the photos. He’s not interested in shipping it, so buyer will have to be local.
“Not overly enthused about selling my 62 CJ3B, but had some i$$ues come up and my hope would be to end up with a good replacement vehicle and enough cash to handle the “financials”. I’m NOT so dire in need as to be low balled on any deal however. If the right deal presents itself, we’ll BOTH be happy.
I bought this Jeep from a guy who had Olympic 4×4 do a whole bunch of $$$ upgrades, but hadn’t kept the receipts. Normally I’d be yeah, right to,BUT the stickers haven’t even peeled off from the brand new springs all the way around with skid plates facing ground on the u-bolts and new heavy duty shackles with 3 inch lift, new Rancho shocks, 11 inch Cherokee brakes, new (rear wheels) e-brake setup and cables, the T90 transmission shifts nicer than any Jeep I’ve driven. Has B&M shifter, Warn overdrive (shifts great–I can do the 1,2,2 OD, 3, 3 OD easily). I believe it has the Dana 27/44 differentials with 427 ratio (Jeep will maintain 60 in 3 OD at 2500 rpm) Saginaw power steering off a 1979 CJ5 with “JEEP” tilt steering/ignition locking post/wheel.
UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/28/2014) Looks like a good 3B. Some matching rims would help.
“Trade or for sale 1962 Willys Jeep CJ3B. In very nice condition, all electrics work, good brakes, tires, 4wd, 3spd manual 4cyl. Stays garaged, lightly driven, titled and registered. $5500 or comparable trade considered. call, text or email”
Has later engine that might run.
“This is a high hood Willys, mostly original with the exception of the engine, which is from a 1964 L head Jeep with the intake valves in head. I am selling this for my brother who has a grand distaste for things digital. He rebuilt the fuel system a few years ago replacing the tank, line, pump, and carburetor. The engine was rebuilt when he installed it and has been driven very infrequently since. When the Jeep was purchased from a seller in Iowa, it had no title. It now has a Washington State title but has not been registered for several years. The odometer reads 38,850. Not sure if it has turned once or twice. After my brother became the owner, he took the Jeep apart to the frame, painting and undercoating it. Unfortunately he had to store it outside, and the Jeep has suffered the Northwest rains. It is running but rust in the fuel tank occasionally clogs the line. It is a good start for a restoration or a hotrod. ”

Could be a good price.
“This jeep is a beast.

“I am selling my 58 willy jeep! We love this thing but have no time for it anymore . I had planned to completely restore it but do not have the time or money to do it . It’s cranks first time every time and runs extremely smooth. Engine has been rebuilt and probably only has about 200 miles on it. It was used as a Deere lease vehicle by a freind of mine. 4×4 works great. I am selling it for what I originally bought it for which a great deal on this thing. ”
UPDATE: Still Available
(05/30/2015) Has lots of mods.
“1954 willys cj3b. has been stretched to 92 inches. primarily built to be used in the sand. but has been licensed and insured for the last 15 years that i have had it. engine started as a mid 60’s ford 428 cu in……..as found in the kr500 shelbly mustangs. i took it down to bare block and built it to 435 inches with, 10.5 comp, aluminum edebrock heads, gear drive, comp solid cam, aluminum roller rockers, edel..broc performer intake etc. ended up with 500 hp. the trans is a built to the hilt c6 auto with b and m holeshot 2400 stall converter.
