Year? CJ-3B Thomson, GA No Price


It has an aftermarket 3B tub on a custom frame.

“Willys 3B Jeep with a custom boxed frame. The jeep has a hard top with the hard doors. There is a Chevy 350 mounted on the new custom frame as well. The tub is the remanufactured heavy duty metal tub. New hood, fenders, nice grill, tailgate, custom steel bumpers with heavy duty tongue. This is an unbelievable project, it just needs someone to finish it up. New disk brakes, hubs have been rebuilt, fluids changed in the axles. The pictures in this ad were taken prior to having a custom boxed steel frame made to handle the 350 engine. Too many new parts to mention!!!!! Make me a reasonable offer! Will consider trades such as equipment, tools, tractors, lulls, skid steer, trucks, diesels, trailers, lumber, center console boats, inboard boats. I am open to trade up with cash.”

1961 CJ-3B Durango, CO eBay


Jim’s sold and shipped a variety of jeeps over the past decade. I imagine the cut hood and lower grill was meant to add visibility, but I can’t say for sure.

“The perplexed look on peoples faces when they see 4 shifters sticking up through the floor board is priceless. I’ve owned this Jeep for nearly 5 years with no plans to ever sell it but with a family of 4 (+3 dogs) I never drive it. On top of that we’re building a house at 8100 ft on the mountain and without a garage I can’t stand to see it sit outside anymore. This Jeep was professionally built, no “hack work” on this rig. Adult owned, never abused, I’ve only driven it to town and on the back roads around the lake where I live.

Could be a good price for the right person. Needs some items.

“All original bumper to bumper and top to bottom. Just had the original starter refurbished and it’s ready to install. I love this jeep but she deserves someone with more time than I have to give. Needs tires , seat covers, and a minor tune-up. It was used only a couple weeks out of each year for deer hunting purposes by previous owner till starter went. Then it sat for a few years till I bought it. Reasonable offers considered but like I already said, I love this JEEP”

“Jeep Collection” Falmouth, KY **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $6000.

(07/21/2017) Craig shared this one. Seller wants $6000 for all the jeeps.

“I have 4 Willys Jeeps. ’49, ’60, ’65, & ’69. I have titles to all except the ’69. The ’49 alone is worth the price of entire lot. I want $6,000 for ALL. I will NOT separate at this time! I may sell the ’49 by itself but prefer to sell the whole lot. Please don’t text me asking me for a book of information back and forth. It’s much easier to CALL! I can also help with transport AFTER the deal has been made. I am willing to trade the entire lot up or down for a TJ or JK Jeep. May be interested in other trades but Jeep preferred. I thought I would have time for a few projects but that has changed so I’m selling them all. It would honestly be easier to come in person and check them all out. Missing parts here, extra parts there, etc. PLEASE no calls or texts after 11pm.”

1954 CJ-3B Portage, WI $10,500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/18/2017) “1954 Willys Jeep in all original condition except for the paint job, which is his favorite color. This is my grandpas Jeep and he has owned it for 30+ years. Used primarily for getting some popcorn from the popcorn stand on sundays and taking a drive through town at about 25 mph. Also used for a parade each year as well. He has the original jump seat for the back and the original complete top for it as well. I believe it is a soft top.

He told me it has 11,000 miles on it. I thought it was more like 16,000, but I could be wrong… So it’s either around 11,000, but no more 16,000… And again, all original. Has been well kept and well maintained over the years. However, I don’t think he’s driven it for a few years now due to it getting a little difficult to get in and out of, so it may need to be freshened up a little bit. Always use to start as soon and as quick as you could push the button and always purred like a kitten. Feel free to contact me with questions and or offers and I will pass them on to my grandpa and communicate back to you that way.”
