1954 CJ-3B Keizer, OR $9900


If the tag is correct, this is a former Los Alamos Jeep.

“All stock and fully restored “High Hood” Willys with 134 cu in (2.2 L) Hurricane I4 motor. Runs perfect and very reliable. Jeep was purchased from Los Alamos National Laboratory motor pool in New Mexico. No rust! Recently installed new parts include tires, shocks, leaf springs, knuckle bearings, front break drums, wheel bearings, battery, and fuel pump.

Title is clean plus plates and tags on it. Great jeep for cruising through town, country roads, or off-road fun.

Hate to sell, but need space in garage.”

1960 CJ-3B Richmond City, VA $9950


Looks nice.

“1960 CJ3B. Red, originally white. Very good shape, runs very well. Needs nothing. ZERO RUST. Soft Top Bikini Top, Jeepster wheels, carpet, optional heat, over drive. Brand new brake shoes, cylinders. 12 volt conversion, generator rebuilt in 2013. Fresh oil change. Original hard top with doors comes in sale. Original hurricane 4-cylinder motor. 66,xxx actual miles. My father bought this brand new in Austin Texas and he owned it until 2009, at which point I obtained it when he was no longer able to drive. So this is a one family jeep for 57 years. It has been a driver, not a show car so it has the occasional scuff and the old radio no longer works.
Always stored indoors and presently in my garage where it has been parked every night. Clear and clean VA title in my name. Open to offers, cash speaks loudly. I am not forced to sell this Jeep so I won’t entertain any low ball offers. NADA has an average retail value of $14000 which I think is off (too high). This is very much an above average Jeep for a below average price. The final two pictures are one of me in the Jeep circa 1977 and one of my sons circa 2013. All of the other pictures were taken 6/3/17 with more to come. I can get pictures of whatever is requested.”

1954 CJ-3B Redmond, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **Sold** Was $7500.



“The jeep was purchased from a Willys collector (second owner) in 2012 for $10,000 plus a jeep for which I paid $2,000, with $7,000 added since.

The original owner was in Western Oregon.

I wanted an original, green,Willys, with original paint, but not with the rust like most on the market. More than 50 jeeps in different States were considered before finding this one. The engine, transmission and Warn overdrive had been rebuilt when I purchased it with a roll bar. There are 25,153 miles on the jeep now.

The license plate designates the vehicle as a collectible, so you don’t need to pay for yearly tabs.

These are the additions since 2012; they were professionally done. Most receipts were kept:

Brakes, master cylinder, hoses, and wheel cylinders $1,114
Wheel bearings packed, replaced hub seals and tie rod $550
Rebuilt distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs $450
New muffler and tail pipe $286
Rebuilt carburetor, points, condenser $443
New thermostat and water pump $416
New fuel pump
Replace brake lights $31
New, stock clutch, value adjustment, wheel bearings $963
New battery $78
New, custom-made springs $668.36, kept originals.
New hood blocks $10.95
New rear floor mat $149.95
New Tow bar and cable
New trailer hitch (never towed anything; thought I would tow a rowing shell but didn’t.)

1953 CJ-3B Arlington, TX $16,000


Looks nice.

“I am selling or trading my 1953 Willys Jeep Resto Mod.
This Jeep has too many modifications and I do not want to look foolish trying to explain them all. If you are a Jeep enthusiast you will know what parts are on it and you will know that this resto mod has been very well done.
It is not perfect but it is close.
Paint is good but the hood could use reshooting and there are some chips here and there but I think it gives it character. Still looks great going down the road though.
It needs the driver front blinker rewired. I am no Mechanic and did not want to mess it up trying to fix it.
This car does not have A/C but it does have heat that works very well. If you want to install an A/C I am sure you could but I simply take the top off.
It has the full soft top and doors but it also has the bikini top which is not shown in pics but will come with.
This Jeep has not been off roading yet since the rebuild but I have been getting tempted. It does have 4×4 that works as supposed to but aren’t all Jeeps.
This Jeeps top speed is recommended at 60 mph. It can go faster but is not safe. It cruises very nice at 60 however.
So far as a trade…text me pics of what you have but it must be worth my asking price. Not willing to put money on top on my end but you are more than welcome to. Only trading for other cars period. Absolutely no guns or boats.”
