“53 Willys CJ3 High Hood
Picked this up in a trade.
Looks like a old mud racer!
Old School Side by Side!
Show your friends what a real Side by Side is, put 400 HP under the hood and bolt on some paddle tires!
Has a rear tow hook to pull those $40,000 SBS out when they get stuck!
Maybe build a 2 wheel drive Straight Axle Rat Rod, 5.9 Cummins with a straight stack through the hood!
Extended Tilt Nose
Mid Engine
Looks like a 73 or newer GM Square body frame
3\4 ton Axles, dont know the gear ratio or if they are locked up
Full float 14 bolt rear axle
D44 front axle
BPO Turbo 400 trans
Dana 20 transfercase
drive lines are still in it.
Power brakes and steering
Full cage with air craft seats and lap belts
All the guages and tach are still in place
B and M ratchet shifter
Radiator and all wiring to put the engine of your choice in it like a Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, AMC, Ford or Dodge engine you have laying around.
472 or 500 Cadiliac would be fun!
Had a 455 Buick that the previous owner kept for another project, was a running driving Jeep.
Maybe a small or big block Chevy with a adapter to the BPO T400
Currently has 12.00 x 16.5 tires will knock $450 off if you dont want them bring your wheels and tires.
Body is rough but intact would make a great Sand Dunes Jeep, Mud racer or Off road Jeep many posibilites, can have fun with this one at a fraction of the Cost of a new Side by Side and not worry about denting or scratching it, besides it will sound better!
Clear Title will need the lights wired for road use.
Selling for parts or as a project Jeep!
$1,950 as it sits
$1,500 less the16.5 tires and wheels, or the T400 Transmission and D20Transfercase
$1,000 Less the transmission, transfercase and wheels and tires, would be a fun family Jeep project. Maybe shorten the frame, add a rear fuel cell many possibilitys, It would do well in the Dunes being Mid engine be lighter on the front end.

My bottom Dollar is $1,000 Cash less the T400, Dana 20 transfercase and wheels and tires, bring your own wheels and tires. If it dont sell by the 4th of July weekend I will be parting it out! Text offers on any part and I will consider if it dont sell before then.”

Year? CJ-3B? Lovell, WY $6800


Listen as a 1946, this looks more like a CJ-3B. However, if you look closely under the midsection of the first photo, it appears the transmission crossmember is slightly visible. I think you only would see that if it were a 2A setup. So, my guess is this is a 3B body on a 2A chassis. Also note that it lacks front frame rails, but there has been some work of some kind on them as well.


“1946 Willys Jeep. Great condition for the year. Just had the fluids and fuel lines changed. Starts and runs, but does need a little more tuning up! Message if interested. Asking $6800 Located in Lovell, WY”

1959 CJ-3B Campbell, AL $6500


UPDATE: As Lee points out, this has the wrong gauge cluster for a 59. Either the year is off or the body is a replacement or something else.

Seems worth a look. Will need work of some kind. Appears to have some EasyLok hubs.


“Needs a few things to finish the project, I’m just tired of it and need the money for a j3 cub”

“Classic Colorado Mountain/ Trail Jeep with period modifications and rare factory options. 1962 CJ3B. Runs, drives and stops. The engine is an F134 Hurricane which has excellent compression, no smoke and vey peppy. Factory Ramsey 8000lb PTO WINCH. This Kaiser Willys Jeep has the rare “Safari windshield” which is a ventilating windshield. That allows the glass to be opened and allow air through while the windshield frame is up and in locked position. This jeep has an interesting homemade spare tire gate on the back, with Jerry can holder on either side. Look at the photo from the rear. All in all a really cool vintage jeep. All the hard stuff has been fixed on this jeep, just a little more work and this jeep would be perfect. I do have a regular CJ3B windshield, I’m willing to reduce the price if I can trade out the Safari windshield for a regular windshield. This jeep will come with a Georgia registration in a bill of sale I can also arrange delivery”
