Ridiculous low-ballers will be ignored.”

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

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

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

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2531789340429970/

“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.”

The vin is also a low number 19_ _ _
I purchase about 15 years ago from my brother in laws father and never restored it. The engine was rebuilt in 1999 and runs smoothly
I believe one of the clutch or flywheel bolts have backed out. Clutch down no noise clutch up makes a rotational clunking sound
It spent most of its life in Twain Harte so we know its history back to the 60s. Have some extra parts

“Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”
