“This is a 1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B (453GB2). It runs. The 4WD works. It has a new gas tank and new battery. It has new tires in the original all terrain style. It has a new winch on front with an LED light bar. It has a tow bar. It comes with a high rear seat for hunting. It does not have seat cushions though. It has a gun rack but it is not installed yet. It does have the tailgate but it is not currently on the jeep.

The passenger rear fender has been replaced. I also have a front quarter replacement but it has not been installed. It has a complete new brake system with new drums, pads and lines. It can probably use a carb tune up but it does have new spark plugs, wires and hoses. I bought it with a title but it turns out it was not the correct title as the serial number does not match so I am selling it without a title. You can get a new title fairly easily though due to its age. Overall the jeep is in decent shape. I will not respond to ANY lowball offers so don’t waste your time.”

“HELLO, THIS WILLYS BEEN IN THE GARAGE SINCE THE MID 1960’S. WAS BOUGHT NEW THEN WAS USED AS A PLOW TRUCK FOR AN OLD TIME GARAGE/GAS STATION. THE TRUCK WAS THEN BOUGHT IN THE 1960’S TO BE RESTORED TO ORIGINAL CONDITIONS BUT THAT JUST NEVER HAPPENED. IT SAT INSIDE THE GARAGE EVER SINCE.

SO THE FACTS I KNOW ARE AS FOLLOWED; NO TITLE AND NO KEYS WERE FOUND IN THE HOUSE, IF EVER FOUND I WILL GLADLY MAIL THEM TO YOU. AN LOCAL MECHANIC CAME OUT TO HELP US DO A FEW THINGS TO GET THIS READY TO SELL. THE TRUCK TIRES HOLD AIR AND ROLES FREELY. THE MOTOR SPINS BY HAND BUT NEVER TRIED TO START. THE RADIATOR WAS OUT OF IT ON THE SHELF SO MY MECHANIC PUT IT BACK IN PLACE FOR THE PICTURES. THE WOOD ON THE FLOOR LOOKS TO BE IN REAL NICE SHAPE. Continue reading

1943 MB Wills Point, TX $2250

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE: Price now $2250.

(05/20/20) Doesn’t run at the moment, but will run if fluids added, at which point the price also increases ….

“(If I do put fluids in it and test drive it price will increase dramatically as it’s a driving project at that point)

MOTOR DOES RUN WELL! This is a real WW2 Willys MB. It is titled as a 46 Jeep. It is a project. It has a ford 200ci Straight 6 that starts and is turn key, but I have not driven it yet. It needs brakes redone and new tires first before being driveable. (Will include some used 31 inch tires) I’ve removed all the old 6v wiring and have it striped for you to start running your own. I was going to start chopping it all up to make a ratrod, but I figured I would give somebody the chance too bring it back to life before hand. I am open to cash offers, bring a trailer and come give it a good home.”

“WillysJeep CJ-3B produced by Willys-Overland in 1953, Willys-Overland was sold to the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation, who adopted the Willys Motors name until 1964. The CJ-3B, a transitional model that narrowed the gap between the CJ and M38-A1, while similar in many ways to the 2A and 3A, had one major difference: the new F-Head Hurricane engine, which delivered more horsepower, but demanded a higher hood, a structural feature that also distinguished it from earlier CJs. The new Hurricane engine delivered a marked improvement in performance, with larger intake valves in the head and increased fuel economy.
I have owned this jeep for 2 years, fixed a few minor issues and now I am looking to make room for another vehicle. The vehicle is a total rebuild which if you come over and check it out, listen to the engine and take it for a spin, you’ll see it is in great shape, all around. Asking $24,000 OBO”

Well, we raised the bar this Christmas. Last Christmas we took my mother-in-law to the ER on Christmas morning. For 2020, we visited the Pet ER at 2am and returned at 4am, then took my m-i-l to the ER in the afternoon (just as I finished cooking a prime rib). Who knows what Christmas 2021 will bring!!??!!
