“This engine in in great condition. Was taken out of a Cj6 and dropped into a Cj5. The miles are unknown but it cant be more that 30,000 on the motor. Everything is there alternator, fan, starter, and etc… Only problem is the fuel pump will need to be replaced or rebuilt. Make your best offer. Can text me at anytime please no calls.”

Looks like a 2A top to me.
“soft top with doors and frame pieces. off of a 1946 willys cj6a. fair condition, doors are almost perfect.no vinal in side windows, no hinges,no mounting hardware,has oval type grommets for 1/4 turn twist locks. something good to start with or use for the summer.will fit many other year jeeps.”
It’s a project that includes a rear PTO.
“I have a 1946 willys jeep, started on the tear down to start a resto-project, now I’m going with something newer. Body is spent, frame repairable but comes with a CJ3A frame . motor turns free, rear pto set up, decent fenders ,hood, and windshield frame, and for the best part, it comes with a clean Massachusetts title.”
Here’s a hard to find motor. No description of condition.
The body is fiberglass.
“1946 Willys Jeep Not running No Spark Jeep has been sitting Fiberglass body”
Variety of parts.
“This is a 35+ year collection of new old stock body panels. I have the front and rear floor pans, rear quarters with inner panels already spot-welded in place, CJ3B front quarters, (piece can be removed to convert to CJ3A). Also included is a N.O.S. 3A grille, N.O.S. 3A hood, N.O.S. tool box, a used windshield and used gate. This package also includes a donor JEEP that is a CJ3A with a very clean frame with straight frame horns with no extra junk welded on and it’s not rusted up. You can’t buy these parts in O.E.M. without spending another 35 years searching. This is not imported junk. Please email for an appointment to take a look at the collection. It is located about ten miles east of Hershey, PA.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(08/2/2013) The spare tire seems oversized. The passenger side has been patched at least once. New or rebuilt engine.
“ALL new engine top to bottom, Electronic ignition, Alternator 12V system w/new battery, new carb/exhaust/crossflow radiator. All new brakes/tires/wheels/seats. All rust steel repaired. $5000 will consider some trading plus cash”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000
(12/18/2013) This appears solid.
“Rare 1971 CJ-6. 80% restored. New tie rods, complete new brake system, new gas tank, fuel lines and fuel pump, new wiring harness (when I got it , it had the original wiring with a lot of extras wiring that had been added over the years from previous owners) , 2 extras front fenders, a new transfer case rebuild kit for it’s original Dana 18 transfer case, more. I bought it because it is so rare and we wanted an older Jeep from the early 70’s. I drove it for about 6 months before starting to fix it up. I came across a CJ5 that I loved and decided to let this one go. It still needs a little work before it could be painted and it would be a heck of a jeep that many people don’t have. The V6 motor and transmission all are in good shape. All it needs is the final finishes on the wiring harness, the transfer case rebuilt, tires and paint.”
UPDATE: Now listed at $5000 & $4500 in same ad.
Looks like it might run.

Today the four 1956 Willys Newspapers in the mail I won on eBay arrived. There is lots of great stuff, both photos and interesting stories. I’ll be sharing them all in the coming weeks.
This first article from the page seven of the June-July 1956 issue tells the story of a retired couple by the name of Hawkins who readied a caravan for some cross country exploration. At the head of the caravan is a Fleetwood Caddillac. It pulls a camper-trailer that pulls a CJ-3B carrying a boat. Looks like they were ready for anything!
Bill Shaw is looking for some five lug tires for his 1/2 scale jeep project. If you comment below, I’ll make sure he get’s your info. Here are a couple links I found:
Bill writes, “I am working on a ½ scale jeep, mounted on a John Deere garden tractor. The engine fits well and I am now working on the axles which I am lowering 6” (if you look on-line, most of these projects have an odd out of kilter high on running gear look). We (my son-in-law, grandson and I) are looking for 4.80/4.00-8 military looking non directional tread tires, 5 of them. If anyone has a lead please let us know – Kanda used to make them, I think. The photos are of a correct size wheel in place, the engine (just fits) and the front steering axle as I am lowering the spindles. We are going to use 5 lug trailer spindles and hubs on the front and on the rear I am going to modify 6” chain sprockets with wheel lugs for the drive axle.”
Scott has been testing the creation of small jeep parts using a 3D printer. He’s hoping to find options for the type of parts that aren’t sold by vendors. For example, you can see the wagon slider window and rear ashtray knobs he produced below. He tells me the 3D knobs he has produced look and feel like the real ones. You can see examples below that he’s made in different colors.
He’s also testing out the production of other small parts, including ones with a true chrome finish. If anyone has any ideas about hard or impossible parts to find, feel free to comment below.
Max had these back for sale.
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7000.

I purchased this 1951 Willys CJ-3A from a Willys enthusiast in Prescott, Arizona. At the time, I planned to buy a cabin in Prescott and store it there, to enjoy on weekends. My plans changed, and the Willys is in my garage in Phoenix. I am not able to use it like I planned. I love the little thing and don’t have to sell it, but someone should own it who can use and enjoy it as these vehicles were meant to be used and enjoyed.
Here is the March, 2013 ad to which I responded:
Nice looking truck.
“1953 Willy’s Jeep pickup truck for sale. 4×4, converted to 12 volt, engine hurricane 6 – 3 speed with hi/lo and overdrive.”
Looks solid. Seller believes the jeep was built in 1945, though it seems to be missing the column shift and a couple other items. It does have full floating rear hubs.
“Total restoration from the frame up in 2012.
This Jeep was built in 1945, between July and December in 1945
The drive train is end run military parts.
Come and see it in Sycamore or go to the Franklin Park, Illinois. military show, October 10, 11 12.
I could deliver within a few hours of Chicago for $1.00 per mile figured by map quest, and paid in advance, after purchase.”
I’d suggest adding a hood clamp to the front of the hood.
