UPDATE: Still Available

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.”

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

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.”

1953 CJ-3B Delhi, NY $3800


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3800.

(08/23/2014) Looks like a solid 3B. Nice vintage hardtop.

Runs well, engine in great condition, hard top. Parked in the barn.

Many photos: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tivhecdzz684xx2/AADh6MGuOAYf1HBDFKZ7vVYVa
I’ve owned this jeep for three years, purchased from a filmmaker/collector here locally who has several willys. I’m not sure how long he had it prior, but I got the distinct impression he’s committed to these vehicles. He has specific shops in Treadwell and Morris that he trusts to work on these (Morris is an hour away from here, which says something.)

I could not speak with certainty on the engine being original– I do know he had it machined and tuned just prior to my acquisition. The carb was also rebuilt.

The brakes seem to be in good condition. The top is in good condition minus a couple chips in the rim. All glass is in good condition (the side windows do not roll down). There is no handle on the passenger door.

The floor pans had been repaired in the past– plates added– they’re adequate but it could be prettier. There are a few rust holes. The toolbox is pretty rusty and has a few holes.

The frame looks good.
It has most certainly been repainted– I couldn’t say what the original color was.
New battery this spring. The wiring needs the turn signals and brake lights sorted out.
Runs very well and strong. Front wheel 4WD locks move well without a tool.

I deregistered it last year as I was fundamentally using it on the farm (to move firewood, and rarely) and didn’t want to pay insurance. I have the papers for easy transfer.

Quite simply, this jeep has gotten little use since I got it– housed in the barn, battery changed, rewiring started, oil changed. I’d keep it if we didn’t need to cover some unexpected expenses.”

1958 CJ-3B Des Moines, IA $9500


Looks solid.

“1958 CJ-3B. Body tub is in great shape – it appears that a previous owner pulled the tub and replaced floor pans and so tub and frame are in great shape. Paint is ok but not perfect (crack in paint on left quarter panel and nickel sized paint flake on right quarter panel, various other nicks). I replaced transmission with new one ordered from Kaiser Willys. I also added new Warn premium locker hubs, did substantial brake work (two drums, shoes, a wheel cylinder, etc) and rebuilt steering arm. I believe motor to be original and it starts right off and runs great. My mechanic looked at clutch when we replaced transmission and he said it looks quite new. Mileage could not be verified by prior owner, so no guess as to accuracy. Horn is missing as is emergency brake cable and handle (drum and shoes appear to be in good shape). Tires also appear to have relatively few miles on them. Gas gauge sort of works, but not trustworthy. Overall this vehicle looks great and is ready to go have fun with.”

“Full blow off road rig is ready to be yours. The rig is solid and ready to go. This is a ’53 Willy’s high hood. A really sick off road rig that is ready for you to enjoy and certainly turn a few heads.

3 speed transmission, original to car
33′ super swamper tires
full lockers, front and read
1’body and 3′ suspension lift
Full roll cage

I will tell you that it does need a new head gasket, BUT other than that, the car runs perfectly. I just don’t drive it enough to keep it any longer. The price is set for it to sell. I’m not interested in haggling, That’s the price to move it, and I have far much more into it than that. But it is time to let it go. Contact me for pictures or to come see it.”
