1944 MB Los Angeles, CA $3300


This poor jeep … Unmolested? Seems a pretty big dent in back.

“This is an unmolested 1944 Willys mb. All original ww2. Can be restored to original or hot rodded. Great project and easy to work on. It comes with an extra rebuilt engine and front spare axle. After doing research on this vehicle you could see it was a navy base jeep due to its original grey paint used on those models during that era. Priced to move, as you can see I have too many projects and not enough time”

1948 CJ-2A Sedgwick, KS $1250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride

This one is rough.

“Early civilian Willys Jeep in rough shape. Parts, project, wall art, yard art, Rat, the choice is yours. Has rust holes but it’s not a salty rot box. Floors have been patched all around. What you see is what I have. No title. Might be able to help with that for expenses,but you would need to help me confirm year and model and serial location correctly so I don’t have it wrong. Not sure of the exact model or year built. I know it’s the internet but please don’t roast me. I’m a Ford/Mopar/GM guy LOL.”

We’ve all run across these examples (and the reason for the Last Ride category, which I’d forgotten about), but Mr. Binks shared this parts wagon priced at $2000! I guess if a fella finds a fool willing to fali for it ….

1946 CJ-2A Iron Mountain, MI $350

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride

There might be some parts value here, but hard to say from the pics.

“Early column shift 1946 Willy’s cj2a. Very rough! Front 1/3 of frame has been cobbled together, back half not terrible. Tub is beyond repair. Rear axle complete and rolls. Front axle missing pass side hub, brake, and leaf spring. Engine is missing parts but I believe it’s free, and has black oil in it still, I believe it’s a good rebuilder. Transmission and tcase there, condition unknown. No title. This was my yard art for many years but no where to keep it now”

CJ-3A & Truck Ben Bolt, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Last Ride, Willys Trucks

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900.

These are rough. The 3A has a PTO, winch, and some Dualmatic hubs.


cj3a-truck-tx2 cj3a-truck-tx1

“Selling both projects–together or separate. CJ3a has small block ford engine with Allstate Ramsey PTO winch, and original 4 wheel drive with dualmatic hubs. I believe its a 1951. The Willys Truck is a 1950 1/2 and is a 2 wd has the L134 engine and needs the radiator. The transmission will need to be rebuilt. The tailgate is the original Willys Overland logo, this alone is highly sought after as well as the fenders and hood. They do not make them like this anymore. Running with the Patina look is currently going at 25000 plus!! The CJ3a is going for 500 and the Truck for 500. Take them both for 900. Let me know if interested. I am in Corpus Christi but will meet to show.”

Year? CJ-3B/GPW Mix Newnan, GA $1500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, GPW (Ford MB), Last Ride

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

This appears to be a CJ-3b with the rear of a GPW attached.

“Vintage 48-53 Willys Jeep CJ. Barn find. Original drivetrain (F134 Hurricane engine, T90 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case, Dana 25 front, Dana 44 rearend). Custom pusher, rollcage. Converted to 12 volt system. Brought it home as a project but wife is not cool with her car left out in the rain while the jeep is in the garage. I have not tried to start it yet as I only have weekends to tinker with it. The only thing I’ve had time to do is clean out the debris and do some research on Willys. Great rare find with lots of potential for the right person. $1500. Not interested in any trades at this time.”
