There was a fire.
All there with custom paint.
Engine fire took its toll. Carb melted. Distributor destroyed.
Was running when caught fire. Gear boxes protected by bucket.
Great donor vehicle. I have many parts unique to these vehicles.
Call to see if I have what you are looking for.”
Runs and drives.
“This is an early flat fendered Willys Jeep. Primitive and reliable. The CJ-3B has a higher hood to allow clearance for the overhead valve F-134 motor (early CJ-2s and WW2-type Jeeps had flat head motors). This is the 2nd CJ-3B I have owned. It runs and drives fine. It has an overdrive unit, and while it is not too smart to drive an old Jeep fast, it will do 65 mph. About two years ago, we replaced the entire braking system – master cylinder, wheel cylinders, drums shows, brake lines and silicone brake fluid – and installed an electronic distributor for reliability. The windshield has a crack, so it will need a new one. This Jeep is not perfect, but starts for me every time, and is generally very solid for a 60 year old Jeep. I have an after market tailgate and a few other small parts. Tires old, but have tread and hold air. I have a file of receipts that indicate extensive mechanical rebuilds in the ’80s – and not many miles since then according to previous owner. I have owned the Jeep for about 7 years.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.
(06/25/2014) This doesn’t run.
“For Sale – 1955 Willy’s CJ3B – This vehicle is being sold as part of my Father’s estate. This vehicle is a 1955 CJ3B body on a 1946 CJ2A frame. The vehicle does not currently run. My Father had the main assembly done on the vehicle, but it does need the gas tank plumbed and wiring done to it. I’m also pretty sure it needs driveshafts done for it. Here are some of the components for it that I can recall -
Dana 30 front axle, Ford 9 Inch rear axle, 33×12.50 BF Goodrich At’s, Ford 302 Small Block (rebuilt), Ford T-18 Tranny and an Atlas T-Case. Please contact me and I will answer any questions as best that I can, or setup a time to look at the vehicle yourself. Thanks.”
(04/28/2014) Doesn’t run. Might not be a bad price if the body is as solid as it appears.
“I purchased this Jeep with the intentions of getting it running. I have too many projects so this one needs to go. The Jeep appears to be complete with the addition of a later model Chrysler alternator. I’ll post under hood photos once the wind stops blowing. The jeep can be viewed Monday 12-6, Tuesday-Friday 9-6 and Saturday 10-5.”
Unsure if it runs.
“Original Hurricane Engine
Will forward more pictures if interested”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $10,750.
(05/09/2014) Seller has restored this CJ-3B that served in South Korea.
“1964 CJ3B US Army Jeep used in Korea by the 8th Armored Division. Sold as decommissioned surplus. I found it in 2003 and did a full restoration on it frame up. The decision was made to restore it as the guys might do in the field. We left the body welds and repairs mostly as they were. It’s been completely gone over from tires, brakes, lines, cables, complete engine rebuild. It has the original engine, transmission, gear boxes. The steering box was swapped for a rebuilt one. Really neat Jeep.
A detailed facebook page with tons of photos is available upon request.”
There’s value here, but the amount certainly depends on if these run or not.
“The orange jeep is a 1964 CJ3B and the black jeep is a 1953 CJ3B. Will sell together separate or trade for a newer running jeep. Any questions or offers call Alan.”
The large speedometer has been replaced by a speaker.
“1963 Willys Jeep
Rebuilt engine, new tire, new top, new seats, new fuel tanks, runs “
