1954 CJ-3B Boydton, VA $8000


UPDATE: Still Available. Was $8000. Now no price.

(10/24/2014) Seller got this fixed up, but has some physical problems entering and exiting.

“I bought this a few years ago, the engine had just been overhauled and had about 100 miles on it. I sent it out and had the entire thing gone over. New generator, starter, regulator, entire brake system, New seals bearings on drive train, tires, glass, spare tire and holder, and the list goes on. It is all original. Door panels and seats already done. New glass, but I need to install it, also has a soft top. Drives great and runs even better. I did the entire Jeep in Black and red because I was going to keep it. You can paint it whatever color you want.

After putting the doors back on I found I can’t get in or out of it as I am handicapped. Will trade for an antique car to restore, 1930 or older, and prefer a 4 door but 2 will do as long as it seats at least 5 people.

I never planned on letting this go, so most all the money was spent on mechanical work. Body was sanded and primed but I liked the flat black and just left it.

I said it is all original, but I did make a few changes. The floor starter is disabled and has a push button on the dash, and I refused to re-install the vacuumed windshield wipers. Also I was in the process of installing a spare battery with a switch on the dash, The switch and wires are with the car.”

Jeeps at the Tennessee Museum of Aviation

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Features, Museums

Someone posted these photos from the Tennessee Museum of Aviation (Sevierville, Tennessee) on the G503 Facebook page. I didn’t get the guy’s name and the post is too old for me to locate him. Looks like a fair number of jeeps there. The CJ-3B originally from Stillwater, Oklahoma, might be the most interesting of all the vehicles. I wonder how it landed in Tennessee.
