Year? CJ-3B Tucson, AZ Parting Out


UPDATE: A similar CJ-3B sold in 2014: http://www.ewillys.com/2014/09/12/1957-cj-3b-airport-jeep-albuquerque-nm-ebay/

This may have a gov plate on the driver’s side dash. The jeep certainly got some unusual, seemingly purpose-driven mods.


“Parting out a willys cj3b lots of good parts . located at willys works jeep parts . ask for Rob.”

“I am selling a 1953 Jeep Willys CJ3b. Jeep is out of California until 2010 where it made its way to the northeast. Minimal rust, two spots the size of a 5 inch square on both floors by feet. Thats it.

The vehicle was undercoated many years ago, of which is peeling like crazy off the bottom of the tub and fenders. Literally comes off in sheets, by hand. Nice grey gloss paint underneath. That grey is the original grey and I think its called swan grey.

The motor was just gone through, including less than .002 taper on each cylinder, rods, pistons and main bearings are all standard and have never been over sized. Cylinders were honed and new standard rings were installed, only because the original rings had become brittle and I snap a few when removing.

1953 CJ-3B Houston, TX **SCAM**


UPDATE: **SCAM** … This ad appears to be a spam ad that was emailed directly to me (we even exchanged several emails).  Neilwilson266 @ gmail.com, the email associated with the post, appears to be a spam email account (or has been co-opted) and has been linked with several spam emails to readers.

In addition, the jeep below has been priced at $3800 on WillysForSale.com for three months, listed by “Neil” as well. A phone number of 409 299 3478 has been associated with “Neil” … 

The jeep below may well still be for sale in Tucson (see older ad here), but I can’t really tell what’s going on with it at this point.  The photo below looks like Tucson, not Houston. 


“1953 WILLYS JEEP —-RUNS GREAT—— REBUILT—– NEW ITEMS INCLUDE; wiring, tires, shocks, gas tank, glass, seats, upholstery, top, hoses, gauges, brakes, exhaust system, 4 cyl engine rebuilt. asking price is $4,800 negotiable.”
