“1961 Willys CJ Jeep flat fender Project
Rust Free Super Super clean Tub. VIN #57348 70150
I think frame and chassis is a CJ3b drivetrain and whoever built this jeep ordered new tub and body parts for a cj2a?
You can hear motor run. I jump starter and put gas in carb fires right up.
Here is what I think it has>
4 cyl 134 CID 2.2L F4-134 Hurricane 14 motor
Needs finishing of some type.

It looks solid.
“Very cool Willys Jeeps for sale. Built over the last two years from combined 47CJ2A and later CJ3B it has most of the things you want on a Willys build. I still have a ton of parts left over from the two jeeps, infact the list is too long to put here. Great CJ2A body blasted, primed, and painted along with frame, and most everyother part you can think of. Virtually everything was replaced or rebuild. Extra 4 Cyclinder Ford motor in addition to the original WIllys motor installed. Brake update kits, all running gear and steering components have been rebuilt or replaced. No telling how much time and money invested. Time and space will no longer allow me to keep it. New projects coming soon and we need the room and cash. Everything that I have goes with it, extra everything. Drove it summer before last haven’t started it since then. Does have tow bar and I know that put a little gas in the carb, she will fire right up! Contact with questions, remember time is short so serious interest only. Can send more photos on request.”
It’s a project with a rear PTO.
“I’m selling a project that will not get done in the near future so in an effort to save It, its time to move on to a new home. This is a CJ-3B also called a high hood. WE have all the major parts to reassemble (body parts and such). It was stripped down to sand blast the body and clean up the running gear. I do have a box of most everything that was removed. The rust is very minimal to not having any at all except surface rust, the one bad spot you can see in the pics. This jeep was never modified in the past, that makes it a good resto project or you can be the first to start cutting on it. It has stock running gear with a rear PTO. May consider a part trade for chevy truck stuff I’m not looking for junk and will still want cash too. Possibly an auto-trans t-400 or T-350 2wd. again no junk please don’t waste my time.”
Not many of these RHD J30s in the US.
“1966 Mitsubishi Jeep J30 4 Door 4X4
Built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries under license from Kaiser Jeep.
These were made from the late 1950s through the late 1990s. However, very rare here in the US.
It features a 4 Cylinder gas motor with a 3 speed manual column shift. (Three on the tree).
It has a THREE speed transfer case 2 Hi, 4 Hi, 4 Med, 4 Lo, and N.
The motor runs quite well. It shifts fine. We drove it to the lot.
However, the brakes need work before it can be driven.
Overall the Jeep is pretty solid. There is some minimal rust in various rocker and door spots.
The frame, floors, and underside look remarkably well. The truck came from Texas.
The interior appears to be mostly original. The seat upholstery is good, but the cushioning material has deteriorated.
The door panels need recovering and the headline is missing (the insulation is still there).
After market gauges and radio have been added many, many years ago. The radio actually works.
The tire look fairly recent. It looks like it was probably repainted eons ago.
Here is some info on this EXACT unit I found on Google
This could be a really cool, unique vehicle. Stand out from the crowd at cruise nights!
Asking $4995 cash. I am out of time and space! Make me an offer! I might take a trade.

“Up for auction is a 1954 Willys RARE High Hood Jeep CJ 3B with Bed Extension
This is a very solid jeep with a 134 4 cylinder rebuilt engine that runs excellent NO LEAKS! (No paperwork on this rebuild)
3 Speed with Overdrive
Tow Bar good shape (not shown)
New Soft Top
Rare Bed Extension
70% Studded tires also includes spare
NO RUST Floor Pans are solid
Interior is in good shape, some tears on the seats, overall usual wear but no rust
The only real issue is there are minor seeps in the transmission.
Overall this is a very solid and ORIGINAL Jeep that starts right up. Brakes are good, 4×4 works great, all gauges work except for the speedometer so do not know the mileage. The paint is an older repaint but in good shape with typical wear, scratches and one dent below the drivers side door. The heater and windshield wiper works, The jeep is turn key for those tough mountain roads, cruising country roads or its ready for that pristine restore.”
This must be move within 10 days after purchase. It doesn’t run and there is not title. Still, there seems to be value.
“This is an old Willys Jeep. I think it is a 1954 but not sure. I have tried to take good pictures so you can see everything.Has an aluminum top that is in very good shape. The windshield is cracked as in the picture. I got it to restore it but never did. The motor was froze up and I took the head off. I got it so it will turn over but turns hard. The weld on the step has broken. Speedometer says 25,304. I have included a pic of the tire tread. The brakes were froze up and stuck to the drums so you will need new brakes in the back and probably brake lines. The pics tell a lot so please look at them. The nice thing about these old jeeps is that they make a lot of parts for them.”
