I’d say referred rather than restored. The dash has a radio and there’s no parking brake, among other minor issues.
“Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this nicely restored 1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B. Finished in quintessential Olive Drab, the body was removed from the frame, all rust remediated, and the floors rhino-lined on both sides. New NDT military-grade tires; new canvas top and seat covers. It’s straight, solid, and never fails to turn heads or invite conversation.
No-nonsense interior has been upgraded with modern gauges and a modern AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and aux input; speakers are housed in repurposed ammunition boxes and sound great.
1953 was the first year for the CJ-3B and is noted for its “high hood,” a design change required to accommodate the taller overhead valve “Hurricane” engine (a nice improvement in performance over the previous flathead).
Fewer than 700 miles on rebuilt engine and transmission with new clutch, starter, alternator, batter, fuel tank, tune-up items and rebuilt carb. Starts easily and runs and drives well. For more information about this 1953 Willys CJ3B for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.”
No pics of the jeeps provided. Might be something or might be nothing.

It looks in great shape, but I can’t imagine there’s a large market for show jeeps in Alaska. It isn’t 4WD.
