1954 CJ-3B Mansfield, OH $8300


It’s a buy-it-now sale on eBay. The body and hood look new. I’m not sure why it has the “49 Jeep” license plate?  I’m wondering if this is actually a CJ-3B body and F-head on a 1949 CJ-3A chassis?

“1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B $3000 obo This Jeep is in pretty good shape and mostly original for its age. The Good: Mostly original, except for the Solex carb and screw on oil filter; these are both improvements unless you’re after a nut and bolt restoration, and it would be easy to go back to stock if you want. Steel hardtop. Starts easily and runs and drives well. Body is in good condition for the age. The Bad: Brakes are adequate but not excellent. Some rust, the worst of it is in the passenger floorboard. Wiring is sketchy at best. The Ugly: It’s a CJ-3B. Some people love them, most think they’re hideous. I like it, but I guess I’m in the minority. In any case, I have too many projects and I don’t think I’ll ever get to this one”

CJ-2A, CJ-5, and Parts North Chili, NY


The CJ-5 is $1600, but I don’t see a price for the CJ-2A. Seller also has a CJ-3B body and a rough CJ-5 (brown). Seller would prefer to sell altogether.


cj2a-cj5-ny1 cj2a-cj5-ny2 cj2a-cj5-ny3 cj2a-cj5-ny4

“I have a 1946 Chassis and body that is a good start to complete a CJ2A. Motor turns over but I have never tried starting it. The body is original steel and was stored in a garage for 40 plus years. Color is a greenish yellow. It has a few panels which I would replace but is in very good condition, does NOT look like Swiss cheese. Chassis has complete drive train including axles, transmission, brakes and wheels. Tires are No Good. It was stored in Syracuse area for a number of years. It has a few gussets to front frame horns and rear V brace needs replacing. I looked for over 2 years to find these items and are the best I could find. Only reason I am selling is I have temporary storage but can’t keep there long term. I have an early flat fender parts vehicle that can be part of the deal.

I also have quite a few parts for various years and am willing to sell them as one lot. Don’t ask to buy individual parts etc. I have an offer to buy everything if I don’t sell as semi complete units.

I have a 1979 CJ5 also that needs extensive body work but frame and drive train are excellent. The 79 has NY title and it runs and drives with a temporary gas tank. I did not register it. The 79 has the 4.2 six cylinder motor. 1979 has good General AT2’s all around. 1979 is $1600 or best offer. I have a number of panels from Classic Industries for the 1979 that will go with it.

I prefer text messages and I don’t answer my phone till after 6:30 PM Mondays, Tues. and Wed. but I will look at your texts.”

1953 CJ-3B Bristol, ME $4500


It’s a project. Obviously, the seller is incorrect about the CJ-3B productions years (should state 53-69).


“Straight from an island off the coast (now on the mainland) is a 1953 Willy’s Jeep.
Desirable CJ3B model (only manufactured in ‘53 and ‘54.)
Partially restored; body rough, but engine, frame, and drivetrain solid. Many new parts added to frame and motor. Bag of new parts and manual goes with it.”

1951? CJ-3B? Roscommon, MI $19,500

Extensive restoration on the drive-train: seals, bearings, front and rear differentials, transmission, transfer case, brakes and military PTO are all in 1st class condition. Engine runs well. Starter rebuilt.
