1954 CJ-3B Phoenix, AZ $6000


I’m thinking we’ve seen this one for sale previously.


“Chevy v8 Original axles and gears Will climb without you just leave her in gear Fuel pump is weak but last time I thought I was selling it about a year it ran but we didn’t air up the tires And the the kid that was buying never showed up No I will not part it out Mileage unknown it was only ever used for deer hunting, moving need gone It is now on a trailer and mobile for hauling”

1953 CJ-3B Loveland, CO $10,000(?)


Perhaps the price is just a placeholder?


“Old Willys, it has the original flat head The motor was rebuilt and at the most it had 5000 miles on it it has just been parked , it would make a great project car I would trade it for and older motor home or a car that runs good as well”

1953 CJ-3B Reno, NV $6500


This may be a good price. It’s listed near Reno, but the map on Craiglist shows it along the border of Kansas and Oklahoma. I’m guessing the map is wrong.

Has a variety of updates.






“1953 Willys CJ3B for sale. Completely rebuilt with new steel body. Rebuilt 225 V6 with new Comp cam. Heads have hardened seats and Chevy dual valve springs. It has all new valves, lifters, and adjustable pushrods. New aluminum radiator and HEI distributor. Rebuilt 3-speed auto with rebuilt Dana 18 transfer case. New brakes and wheel cylinders on 11″ brakes. Homebuilt emergency brakes to keep it road legal. 5.38 gear ratio with Warn hubs front and rear. Top speed is 60 mph and anything over I would consider dangerous. I built it to go play in the sand but never made it. Not safe on the freeway but should be fine just wheeling in town. It has new full set of gauges and a full roll cage. New spare tire mounted in the back so no room for back seat. Genuine German Jerry can. Home made aluminum tool box also in the back. The Willys is painted CAMO with good urethane paint; not rattle can. I fabricated lot of stuff on here so it’s a little different. PS, PB, and bikini top. Have tow bar but not mounted. It has small oil leaks here and there so don’t park on a clean driveway.”
