“For sale is a good running Jeep CJ3B. The body has been patch paneled on the floor boards but is really solid overall. Has a brand new windshield frame but needs glass. The front seats are quite nice. The frame is very good and solid. Engine runs very well with good oil pressure and does not smoke. Tranny shifts very smoothly and the 4WD all works. Has premium lock out hubs. The head and tail lights work but no front turn signals. Overall a pretty solid jeep to use as is. This would also be a great candidate for a total restoration because it is pretty complete and has a really good frame.”

“I’m looking to sell or trade my 1960 Willys/Jeep CJ3B. These Jeeps are highly sought after by collectors and 4×4 enthusiasts alike, especially in original condition. I’ve recently had a new exhaust system installed, rebuilt the transmission, purchased a new top, tires, and had the seats reupholstered. It runs and drives great, and shifts through all gears (including 4WD H/L) perfectly. It has rust spots on the body. It has a clear Kansas title, and can be tagged as an antique, which costs around $40 in Kansas.
If you’d like to see the Jeep email me through Craigslist.
It’s a project.

Not an ‘absolute’ original, but pretty close. For example, the gauges have been replaced. A second set of lights is on the grille . … etc. But, it is a good looking jeep.

UPDATE: Still Available. This is probably a CJ-3B body on a 3A frame, but could be a 3B with an incorrect title. If not those two, then who knows.
Looks like a good price.
“Restoration project. Brakes, transmission good. Small dents in body. Solid frame. Runs good. New paint. title.”

Myself, my boys, Ann and her mother spent a few days at Desolation Pass for the last two days. Turns out, connectivity was horrible. So, that explains the lack of updates. Nice to get away from the wired world for a while. Substantive updates will begin thursday, but I’ll get a few in for Wednesday as well.
Now, for this unique ad. James forwarded this gem of an ad. Looks like there are military and civilian jeeps for sale here.
“I recently purchased an estate of Willy’s CJ Jeeps and Parts, and I think I am ready to see if anyone needs parts or project vehicles. Mostly vintage with many early Willy’s CJ2A’s in complete condition and various stages. I have tubs also, some even bead blasted and ready to go. Looks like a fair amount of CJ5 and possibly early CJ7 as well. Look at the photos, that will give you an idea, most of the vehicles with wheels have complete drive trains. There are many loose front ends, rear ends, transmissions, and engine parts, as well as body parts. If you have a project needs help, or looking for a new one, give me a call, 303-507-0045.”
UPDATE: Was $2500. **SOLD**
(04/07/2014) This includes a Warn Overdrive. The seller has a truck for sale, too.
“957 Willys CJ3 Flat Fender Jeep. 4 cyl . 4 speed. Runs and drives. Has very rare Warn Overdrive option. Clean MD title. Tons of spare parts.

$2500 for each. Willing to trade/ barter. What do you have? Interested in guns/ ammo, Lionel toy trains/ Silver dollars/ musical instruments/“
Has title. Has dualmatic hubs, so there’s a little value there.
“1952 Willys jeep for sale. The jeep does have a title with it. It is rough, but could be a project or a parts vehicle for someone. The jeeps come with an additional axle and tow hitch. I believe it has a Ford Falcon six cylinder in it now. It did start at one time, but has not been started for four years. I will accept all reasonable offers.”
This shouldn’t last long. Has a flathead motor for some reason.
“This is a 1953 MB this jeep spent its life going up-and-down a local hill in Porterville it has the rare dual rear wheel axle put in by dealer at time of purchase that 134 which is the flatbed turns but does not ignite I believe needs new coil I have not tested it yet the tub of the jeep rear corners are in rough shape see picture $1500.00 OBO”
Needs master cylinder at the very least.
“Everything on this jeep is the original Willys parts with exception of the front seats. Currently the vehicle is being parked and covered until sold.
It does have a HARD top! and It does run but would need a master cylinder.”
UPDATE: Price now $4000.
‘Dirty George’ is a fun looking 3B that was an ex ice racer.

(06/18/2014) Good looking CJ-3B.
“New original rebuilt motor with less than 500 miles on it. Many new mechanical components. Body is in amazing shape and would be perfect for a restore project.”
Looks like a good rig.
“1954 Willys Jeep CJ-3B – Complete ground up restoration in 1996. Engine rebuilt at that time, including hardened valve seats for unleaded fuel. Still has the original oil bath air cleaner. Upgraded to 11″ drums all around. Has 2-1/2″ springs on it with 31X 10.5 tires 75+% tread. Full size spare. All stock running gear, 5-38 gearing with lock-right locker in the rear. Has custom fully welded Bumpers front and rear both with 2″ receivers. Rear bumper includes spare tire mount. Also added power steering. Locker, bumpers and power steering work was done around 1998. Jeep was used regularly (every – other weekend or so) from 1996 through 2000. Since 2000 it has been started and driven very little. I replaced the fuel tank and installed a new optima red top battery within the last year. It does need a good tune-up, but everything is working. This is a very clean rust free jeep. We are coming up on 20 years that this Jeep has been in our family and it has always been garaged. “
Looks like a parts jeep.
“1953 willy jeep cj3b has title. Good for parts or restoration. The engine transmission and drivetrain are all free nothing is seized, solid frame. $600 or best offer”
