1960 DJ-3A Goshen, NY $4000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4000.

Austin is selling this DJ-3A, which appears to be a combination of WWII parts and a DJ-3A. The axles, transfercase, transmission and rims appear to be from an MB or GPW. The hardtop is a later model version of the standard DJ-3A hardtop (has the larger rear glass door). It’s unusual to see a hardtop on a DJ-3A with the side glass (usually only seen on CJ-5s). My guess is the engine is from a DJ-3A as is the chassis.

You can contact Austin at ADewitt @ itcservices.com (remove the spaces around the @ before emailing).

“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

Pros
Roller
Willys MB tub, grill, fenders, hood
M38 windshield
Spicer 18 transfer case core(needs rebuilt)
Short width Dana 30 axle with factory disc brakes from a CJ5
Dana 27 front axle
COVETED 1971 only-flanged, offset Dana 44 out of a CJ5. It is stuffed with a Detroit locker and chromoly axles(have paperwork to verify)

1942 MB Columbia, KY $7500

Tom shared this one. It runs and has a slat grille in the back. The body’s indent area and cargo areas have been patched.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/449681307157534

“1942 Willys MB slat grill. Vin 121995 with title. Running/driving. Brakes inop. Matching engine block and very early head. Not sure if the head is original. Missing frame tag but assuming it’s original too. Definitely worth a restore just not in the cards for me right now. Most recently it was owned by a farmer in KY for 40 years. Script panel missing as PO welded metal in the rear tub portion. Also some tomfoolery with springs on the shocks for added suspension. Closest offer to 7500 gets to take it home.”

1949 “Swiss Army” CJ Fayetteville, AR $17,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, MB

Listed as a 1949 CJ-2A Swiss Army Jeep and claimed to be “an original Swiss Army Willys Jeep”, this looks to me to be a refurbed CJ-3A with a reproduction MB body and, possibly, an MB engine. So, how ‘original’ it is isn’t clear.

It is true the Swiss Army used a wide range of jeeps, including MBs, CJ-2As, CJ-3As, M-38A1s, CJ-3Bs, CJ-5s, and Wagons (https://cj3b.info/Military/SwissArmy.html).
