Year? CJ-3B Shasta Lake, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE **SOLD** Was $1895

(02/22/2018) This late model CJ-3B has some Desert Dogs in great shape.

“Hello, I have a CJ3B project for sale, It includes the body as seen in photos, new frame with springs Dana 44 rear axle, Dana 30 front axle and four good Desert Dog tires. This is a new reproduction frame, not a sandblasted old frame. I have installed Saginaw steering using Jeep Parts from a 1971 Jeepster Commando, is a very good installation, and a trailer hitch made from 3/8 steel plate, so it is plenty strong and looks nice. Also, the front bumper is made out of 1/4 steel plate that I had made to look like a stock bumper, so it is really strong over a stock bumper. This is a very good start for a project, and I also have other Jeep parts for sale if interested in building a solid Jeep project. This project comes with the original VIN plate for registration, but this project is being sold with a bill of sale only. I can deliver this Jeep within 100 miles for fuel costs both ways.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7995.

(01/29/2018) The seller very honestly points out some weaknesses in the jeep.

1964-cj3b-rosebud-mo1 1964-cj3b-rosebud-mo2 1964-cj3b-rosebud-mo3 1964-cj3b-rosebud-mo4

“Up for sale is this very nice 1964 Willys CJ3B. The last of the flat fender jeeps. This one is in excellent physical and mechanical condition. There is no rust through on the jeep. The paint is decent on the exterior, but there is overspray in the engine compartment and whoever did the paint job did not clean off all the light scale on the rear floor and fenders and just painted over it, so the paint is the weak link.

It runs, starts, drives, and stops like it should. has a radio in the dash that will work if speakers are hooked up. Seats are good and drivers side has a piece of tape on the top edge as shown. I recently installed a period correct Kayline soft top and doors, and it is excellent.
