Jeep is pre-smog and you can install any drive train you want and never need to smog it. I have a F134 four cylinder motor and some rebuildable transmissions and transfer cases that can be purchased for a reasonable cost if the buyer is interested in having an original type drive train.”

Been stored for a couple decades.

“Jeep cj3b willys, this has the larger f head motor, been stored in barn for at least the last 25 years, I have no time to work on it.

1954 Model? Eagle, CO $1500


Seth says he could take a look if anyone is interested. Below is the ad’s text. He spotted it on a FB Group page.

“If you’ve ever wanted a Jeep here is your chance. It was fully rebuilt and running like a champ. Then lost in a bet and sadly sat for a while. I picked it up with dreams of making it a beast. I have realized that I don’t have the time to make it what I want. It needs a gear head to crank on it and it will run like a champ. I will take $1000 cash or we can make a deal.”

1962 CJ-3B Twin Falls, ID $650


UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/17/2017) There looks to be $650 here.


1962-cj3b-twinfalls-id-7 1962-cj3b-twinfalls-id-8 1962-cj3b-twinfalls-id-9

“I have a 1962 CJ3B for sale. The vehicle was to be a restoration candidate. Diving in to it, it is most likely best suited as a parts vehicle or custom vehicle. The mechanicals components seem to be in relative good shape but the tin, frame, and aesthetics are sub-par.

I have dismantled the vehicle completely (main components). Sub assemblies have been partially dismantled (transmission dis-assembled, engine ancillaries and head removed). Despite being dismantled, it is all there. What I have seen of the gears I have seen, they seem to be in pretty good shape.

The bad:
– The body is in rough shape. There might be some salvageable panels.
– The frame is in rough shape. The front end and cross member will need redone. The back half of the frame is ok.
– No seats or frames.
– No steering wheel but I will include one with the sale (not original)
– Never heard the engine run.

Has a new body.

“1955 cj3b frame off rebuild 17 years ago solid as hell. Everything above the frame was new. All steel body from the Phillipines where to this day they still make them. the body tub kits cost $5000 alone now. It has since painted blue by a shop. Has a bored over (30) chevy 4.3 4″ lift and 33″ tires original axles and t case via custom advance adaptors parts. Needs shade tree mechanic and very little to run again. The whole thing (except the axles and t case) has less than 1000 miles on it since the build. Be the envy of your off-road pals or put back to it’s former glory. would consider trade for a good on gas car OF EQUAL VALUE. Hit me up. $ 6000 OBO -Might consider trade for running classic car or big boat style cadillac but cash is king. Hate to let it go but also have a cj7 I am working on and a 55 chevy truck. Too many projects soo something has to go. ”
