1957 CJ-3B San Bernardino, CA $12,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/19/2022) Some of the elements on this make me wonder if it was an old school build that has been recently updated into a crawler. Hard to tell for sure at this point.


“1957 Willys Jeep rock crawler, street legal off road Jeep. Ford posi-traction 9in chrome differentials, 4 wheel disc brakes, fox body fuel injected 5.0 engine, C4 transmission, Warn winch, Hi-Lift jack, onboard compressor, comes with regular tires and a set of paddles.

1957 CJ-3B Watertown, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500.

Seller notes there is some body rust, but the jeep shows well in the pics.

1957-cj3b-watertown-ny2 1957-cj3b-watertown-ny3 1957-cj3b-watertown-ny4

“1957 Willys CJ-3B. Runs great, motor rebuilt around 2012. Many new cosmetic improvements: new seat foam and canvass, repainted transmission cover, new shifter boots, new paint-in bedliner, new seatbelts. Transmission and transfer case were recently gone through and work great. The frame is solid. Runs and rides great.

The body looks good, but there is rust. If you are looking for a restoration project, plan on doing body work. Someone has used body filler and painted this Jeep. It looks good, just know that the body is not solid metal.

This would be a great Jeep for a restoration project or to enjoy as is. It certainly catches people’s attention.

The true mileage is unknown. Odometer shows about 13,000 miles, but it’s probably more like 113,000.”
