“Here is one neat Jeep. This is a CJ-3B that someone did some nice upgrades too. Originally it would have had a F-Head four cylinder in it. Now the Jeep has a strong running 225 Dauntless V6 that offers the perfect amount of power and torque. It fits the Jeep well. Jeep did use these motors from the mid to late 60’s. They’re great!

Power steering was added and a tilt steering column. The Jeep also and a full roll cage and updated fuse block.

The Jeep is fun! It also has a full soft top and soft doors, winch bumper and a small lift. The body is solid….not all rusted out. The dash has a nice well done gauge cluster and rocker switch panel. The brakes pull a bit if you hit them hard.

Its a great Jeep for running around the ranch, beach, neighborhood etc. Its a clear title, Jeep is located in San Antonio Texas. Thanks”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/17/2022) There’s been some customization to this front clip, turning it sort of into a CJ-3B-looking 2A.


“This is a cool rig! It was built over the years by an engineer machinist creative old fella! It has a Ford Flathead V-8! Yup, you read right. It has power steering, an actuated grille with Louvers, a split tail gate, and body exit exhaust etc. lots of ingenuity. It runs and has a title though it’s been parked a bit. Hasn’t been driven in a year or so. It has title also!”

(02/20/2022) This fiberglass body may be the 3B Bobcat version. It’s got the wide brim in the back and the long steps. But, it is difficult to tell for sure.

1960 CJ-3B Las Cruces, NM **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500. Not surprisingly, this didn’t last long.

Seems worth a look at this price.

1960-cj3b-lascruces-nm42 1960-cj3b-lascruces-nm43 1960-cj3b-lascruces-nm4

“New parts within the last two years:

New aluminum radiator
New windshield
New battery
New toyota starter (better than stock)
New master cylinder
New tires
New fuel pump
New throw out bearing
and probably more I forgot…

This is a 1960 Willys CJ-3B. It is by no means perfect, but starts right up and would probably drive anywhere you want as long as you don’t want to go fast.

The body is fair, the interior is pretty good.
The motor runs great, the brakes work but pull to the left. The tires are reproduction vintage, so they’re only a couple of years old but look like OEM. The lights all work, and I’ve got a clear NM title.

The speedometer was broken when I got it, I replaced it with a different one, I have no idea what the actual mileage is, but you can tell how slow you’re going!

I’m asking $5500, and would consider partial trades for ATV’s, dirt bikes, Willys parts, maybe others.”

“1958 cj3b originally a Navy Jeep. The plate is on the firewall with all the data. Runs excellent, all lights work, heater works. It has the typical rust in all the normal places for an old Jeep. Would make a perfect example restored back to a Navy Shore Patrol Jeep. Will be sold with a bill of sale and the pink slip showing that I paid the taxes on it when I purchased it from the city of Woonsocket in Rhode Island.”

1978 EBRO Bravo L Lincolnton, NC $16,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, CJ-6, Features, International

Rennie spotted this rare jeep. Based on a CJ-3B-Page brochure, this is most likely an EBRO Bravo Model “L”. It seems the jeep below has had some modifications.
