“CJ3B Willys Jeep – the classic late 1950-1960’s era flat fender Jeep. Rebuilt 225 odd-fire V6 (with electronic ignition and Howell TBI fuel injection) transplanted from 1968 CJ-5 along with rebuilt T-14 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case and Warn Overdrive. New clutch, pilot bearing, throw out bearing, alternator, water pump, rebuilt starter. Dana 27 (front) and Dana 44 (rear) axles have 5:38s, new seals, wheel bearings, and rebuilt Selectro front hubs. Saginaw power steering, 11” drum brake conversion.

The frame is boxed in segments for strength. Warn 8472 winch that pulls hard and fast. Custom spare tire carrier with detachable cargo rack. The carrier swings out so you can access the drop-down rear tailgate. The rack has tabs to attach a hi-lift jack. The carrier does not rattle or squeak! No kidding – very heavy duty. The Jeep drives fine at 60 mph (at about 2300-2400 rpm with overdrive).

“Bought and fixed this willys with the hope that I would enjoy off roading, well just not my thing. It’s a 1947 willys Jeep cj2-a. I stuffed a 1971 corvette 350 in it with aluminum radiator, electric fan, pertronix electronic ignition, Taylor spark plug wires, new water pump, thermostat, and a brand new starter. Has a Saganall steering box, new intake manifold and a edelbrock carb. She fires right up although she can be a little cold blooded but once it’s warmed up she doesn’t fail.

Tires are 31’s and still in good shape, it has new brake lines all the way around, new master cylinder and a new slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch, has about 55-60 psi in oil pressure and runs about 180-185 degrees. Bikini top is fairly new, no rips or tears, seats are in great shape. I made custom seat mounts so you can move them forward/back and tilt.

Also has a 8000lb winch mounted up front with its own cut off switch. Looking to sell soon so I can move on to my other toys I rather play with. Has been out of the system for years. I can proved a bill of sale, I also have an appointment on Wednesday to do a vin verification with CHP to get it titled. $6500 obo”

“My family has an old army jeep, it’s an old relic that has been very hard for us to let go. It’s a 1947 Willys CJ-2a that’s been sitting in our garage for 30+ years. Was my great uncles who was in the war and actually used this jeep! I wish we had the funds and resources to get this amazing piece of history drivable but it’s not realistic right now. The body is intact and everything is original. It doesn’t run and needs a complete overhaul because of how long its been sitting in our garage.
Fortunately, there are a lot of manuals online on how to do it.

I would love to see this jeep find a home to someone who would take good care of it and someone who wouldn’t mind staying in contact with my family so we could see the process of it being restored. and possibly have a ride in it once it’s finished being restored :)”

The Jeepster at the I-95 Welcome Center

• CATEGORIES: Features

In 2018 when driving south from Philadelphia to Delaware, a reader recommended we stop at the northbound welcome center along I-95. Unfortunately, as we were driving south, we got a little confused, then we realized that to turn around was going to take more time than we’d allotted. So, we never got to see what was at the Welcome Center.

Yesterday, someone posted a picture of a Jeepster that sits inside the Welcome Center, so now we know what we missed! We’ll definitely stop on our next trip, should we head north on I-95.
