Roger Martin has some stuff he’s like to sell. It’s best to contact him via phone: 937-477-5270.

1951 CJ-3A & Trailer Cleveland, OH $5500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, trailer

UPDATE: Still Available? The price includes a Bantam trailer.

(08/20/2017) Passenger seat isn’t installed. Appears worth a look.

“Currently does not run. I think it’s a carb problem. The engine is getting fuel spark and air so I assume it’s a mixture problem. Other then that when it does run, it’s good. Purrs like a kitten. 4×4 works. I’ve never had it off road. Well if you call being on some grass off road, then it has been. The tub looks good. It’s not really that great. It’s been patched… poorly. I got it to drive around and maybe fix later. I can’t afford to do that so it’s for sale.”

1947 Bantam T3-C Trailer Ashford, CT $500

• CATEGORIES: trailer

Needs some work.

“I have a 1947 Bantam T3-C trailer in need of some freshening up. Comes as shown with Bill of sale only. I’m also including a sheet steel tub that I had made, it is the correct size to replace the rotten deck, with enough material on the sides to replace as much as you’d like.

My plan was to restore it and make a camp trailer to tow behind my Jeep. This would be a great choice for a Willy’s trailer to tow behind a CJ2 or similar.”

“1949 Willys CJ3A Fire Engine Jeep. This is a Boyer conversion. This jeep is very complete, original, and unrestored. This jeep has less less than 3200 miles on the odometer. Lots of the original accessories are still place. I understand that some of the nozzles are collectible.

The jeep has been in long term storage since it was taken out of service in 1980. The jeep is not currently running but the engine is not stuck. It will turn over by hand. The jeep was driven into the storage building that I found it in. I bought this jeep from the first civilian owner. Since this is an all original jeep, I have done nothing to it. I have not even washed the nearly 40 years of dust off of it. You are getting a very complete and untouched original fire engine jeep here.
