Looks nice.

Own a piece of history! This 1954 Willys CJ-3B Jeep is in fantastic condition and is a head-turner for sure. The restoration has resulted in a nearly original Jeep. Paint is good and no body work needed. Original F-Head motor. Throwback 7.00×15 mud grips with tons of tread including spare mounted on side as it was in 1954. Top is in decent and workable shape. Here is the new stuff… seats, steering wheel, Warn locking hubs, speedo, small parts tranny rebuild kit, turn signals, wipers/motors, clutch linkage, fuel system (tank, lines, pump), new (not rebuilt) Carter YC carb. There is a WORKING PTO vintage winch that you have never seen before that is operated from PTO lever in cab. It drives true and straight with NO road wondering. Tight steering linkage. The hi/lo transfer case and 4WD work perfectly. Solid brakes/new pads. New exhaust system. Roll Bar. All light and signals functional. Original Harrison heater works great. Tow bar an skid plate included.”

1963 CJ-3B Clemmons, NC For Trade


UPDATE: Still Available

(12/23/2013) Looks real nice.

“1963 Willys CJ3B Jeep
This is an original High Hood, Flat Fender, Four Wheel Drive, Universal Jeep from Willys. It is VERY unique and reasonably rare (in this condition). It turns more heads than a Lamborghini Gallardo. If you are shy and don’t like attention, this car may not be for you.

It came off a farm in Virginia. A friend and I restored it and removed all Bondo patches and replaced them with steel. Our goal was to take it back to as original condition as possible. All original running gear. 4 Wheel Drive system works fine. Manual Lockout hubs. Correct lights and heater. It has a “Granny’ gear that will climb a tree.

I am looking to trade it for a 1940 through 1956 Pick-Up truck (Any size up to 3 ton) with:

-Ford, Chevrolet or Dodge
-Mostly or all original (No modifications that can be seen)
-Running and driving
-Good interior
-Solid body and frame
-Good paint.
-It doesn’t need to be SHOW condition.

To discuss call Nick at 336-575-4887.
