“The jeep is in VERY GOOD condition with a like new roof and rear bench seat.
Dark Green in color.
Original F-Head Hurricane motor with 6 volt electrics and a good battery. The F-Head engine is in excellent condition. It starts right up and runs very strong with no oil burning or leaking from the seals and gaskets.
The engine was rebuilt a few years ago by the person I bought it from. I rebuilt the carburetor 2 years ago.
The body has some scratches and dings and a small dent behind the fuel filler neck, but overall very good for the age. NO RUST.
The roof is about 3 years old and looks like new.
The transmission leaks, probably needs a new gasket.
The overdrive does not currently work, probably because the transmission leaks.
The speedometer does not currently work.
235/75-15 tires with 75% tread and snow studs. Side mount spare tire the same.
Has a Willy’s Jeep dealer “Extension Body ” for the rear of the jeep, very rare. Remove several bolts and the extension comes right off.

(12/06/2014) It might be worth a look.
“My ’54 is numbers-matching and pretty much all original from stem to stern. It has 66764 miles and has spent all it’s life in Montana and Oregon. It has been driven a mere 1800 miles since 1993. It is equipped with a Koenig Model 330 all-steel cab and Koenig PTO King Winch Model 151J (the PTO is not connected for some reason). And it has a HEATER!!
The engine runs well. 6V battery is new. Clutch, exhaust, shocks, tires, and brakes have low miles on them– however due to lack of use the brakes need some attention. I added fluid and replaced both front brake hoses– and then the weather hit and I set the project aside. Lights also want a little help. Gauges mostly work. One broken piece of (flat) cab glass left-rear.
The Jeep was originally red. At some point it was re-painted red by hand and has great patina. Yes, there is rust– but I’m going to call it ‘average’. Oregon title is clean.
I can send pix– but come take a look! I’m just west of Pilot Butte….”
UPDATE: Was $1900. **SOLD**

“Selling my 1953 Willy’s Jeep, its a CJ3B first year of the high hood model. This jeep starts right up, drives all day, its not a corvette but it will climb over one! It does have the original motor and transmission, transfer case, most of the wiring is original. This jeep is more than 60 years old so it does need some TLC, it needs brake line and/or the brake master cylinder fixed and a couple of the gauges (which are all original) also need some attention, needs new windshield wipers (front glass is near perfect) and driver side mirror. There is very little rust and no cancer that I have found. It has two new tires on the rear and comes with a spare carburetor and a new carburetor kit for it. New battery, original oil filter etc, etc, etc.
