This has a variety of updates.

“I have owned this Willy’s since 1962. It is a unique piece of history. Powered by a 350 Chevy, Muncie M-20 four speed, Camaro Steering, front disc brakes, 11 1/2 inch mercury brakes on the rear. All the wiring is redone and everything works as it should. This Willy’s runs and sounds great, and very powerful. You have to see it to appreciate the time and care given to this vehicle. This willy’s turns heads where ever it goes. It has a Koenig 100 power take off winch that has been on the car from the beginning. Vintage KC lights. Full skid plate. New gauges. Just a one of a kind classic car. The only thing that is not operable is the e-brake”

“1947 CJ-3B” Leavenworth, KS $18,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

Jeff is selling this modified CJ-3B that’s titled as a 1947 CJ-3B. He’s aware that there was never a 1947 3B, but sometimes title inertia is its own force. You can email him at: jefflamoe @ gmail.com (remove the spaces around the @).

“CJ3B Willys Jeep – the classic late 1950-1960’s era flat fender Jeep. Rebuilt 225 odd-fire V6 (with electronic ignition and Howell TBI fuel injection) transplanted from 1968 CJ-5 along with rebuilt T-14 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case and Warn Overdrive. New clutch, pilot bearing, throw out bearing, alternator, water pump, rebuilt starter. Dana 27 (front) and Dana 44 (rear) axles have 5:38s, new seals, wheel bearings, and rebuilt Selectro front hubs. Saginaw power steering, 11” drum brake conversion. The frame is boxed in segments for strength. Warn 8472 winch that pulls hard and fast. Custom spare tire carrier with detachable cargo rack. The carrier swings out so you can access the drop-down rear tailgate. The rack has tabs to attach a hi-lift jack. The carrier does not rattle or squeak! No kidding – very heavy duty. The Jeep drives fine at 60 mph (at about 2300-2400 rpm with overdrive).

This is NOT a frame-off restoration, but built to be a reliable and capable flat fender with a “period correct feel” of a 1964-1968 Jeep (CJ3Bs and CJ5 were both produced at the same time). You can take this Jeeping with confidence. It is a capable flat fender that could easily go to the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab in a couple months.
If you like flat fenders, then you are familiar with this popular combination of the “high hood” CJ3B and the odd-fire V6. The “Dauntless” 225 V6 boasts 160 horsepower as opposed to the stock 134’s 75 horsepower. This swap gave 1953-1964 era CJ-3B more than twice the horsepower, and only weighs ten pounds more than the 134.
Receipts, documentation and lots of extra parts including Dana 41 rear axle with new ring and pinion, 2 Rochester 2G carburetors, mechanical fuel pump, various drive line shims and seals. Clear Kansas Title (Titled by Kansas as 1947 CJ3B, Kansas VIN: 132586). Odometer shows 16,576 miles.

1969 Mitsubishi J20C Katy, TX BaT Auction

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

Blaine spotted this nice looking Mitsubishi J20C that’s being auctioned at Bring-a-Trailer.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-mitsubishi-j20c-jeep/

“This 1969 Mitsubishi J20C is a right-hand-drive Willys Jeep-based design licensed for production in Japan, and was imported to the US in August 2020 by the seller. The truck is finished in a two-tone gray paint scheme with a white roof over green vinyl, and power comes from a 2.2-liter inline-four paired with a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. Equipment includes a pintle hitch, a heater, a Mitsubishi Electric AM radio, fender-mounted mirrors, driving lights, and 15″ Mickey Thompson wheels with 32″ BFGoodrich tires. Since importation, the seller performed an oil change, re-routed the fuel line, adjusted the timing, and replaced the brake booster. This J20C is now offered with a spare wheel and tire, import documents, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name listing the vehicle as a 1969 Jeep J20. more –>

“This 1964 Willys Jeep CJ-3B was acquired by the seller out of Wisconsin about four years ago and subsequently underwent a body-off restoration. A repaint in Steel Glow Gray Poly was carried out, and the F134 Hurricane inline-four, three-speed manual transmission, power take-off, and the two-speed transfer case were reportedly rebuilt at this time.

Features include a seven-piece canvas soft top, 16″ wheels, Warn lockable front hubs, a Hickey sidewinder winch, a ventilated pop-out windshield, black hardware, and aftermarket auxiliary gauges. A tune-up and valve adjustment were recently performed. This CJ-3B is now offered with restoration photos and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name. (more info on BaT)”
