1953 CJ-3B Hillsboro, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500

(05/19/2010) This looks good and has a PTO, but needs some work.

“PRICE REDUCED $2500 1953 Willy’s CJ3B “High Hood” Consider trade for a enclosed trailer w/ clean appearance, tandem axle w/ side door, 7×14 Fun Jeep to drive and regret that I have to sell it. First year of the 3B! This Jeep is a small project that needs a engine and seats. The 283 is removed(it could be included but in need of repair or replacement to a similar chevrolet engine) It also needs the old seat frames recovered or replaced (through the Kaiser catalog) and a section of exhaust pipe between the rams head exhaust to muffler exchanged(from a muffler shop) The hood, grill and tailgate are repainted. I replaced the shocks and included is a new powdercoated gas tank(It is not installed) It has some original parts such as the stock vacum operated windsheild wiper motor, offset axles, transmission, transfer case and a extremely rare power take off for farming implements on the rear of the Jeep. Also the front tow bar is refabed for a 2″ ball. Handles flat tow very nicely. The soft top is in good shape with the rear section needing to be replaced(likely from a boat shop) Additional parts included are the front and rear entire axle assembly including tie rods, transmission, transfer case, and partially completed half doors. Jeep sits on 28″ wild country radials w/ aluminum rims. With a little bit of work, this could be a whole lotta fun. Great chance for someone to own a rare PTO Willys CJ3B that is a unique conversation peice. Oregon title”

1946 CJ-2A Le Claire, Ia eBay


This looks like a good package.

“1946 Willys CJ2A in original almost rustfree condition, there is slight surface rust on the under body and one spot of rust on a hat channel at one of the mounting bolts. The inner windshield has rust around the glass area and probably could be replaced. The body itself has normal farm use dents and dings but nothing serious and would be a easy restoration, the area around the side holes are probably the worst they had a rubber cover bolted to both of them see picture, I have had it about 20 years and enjoyed it as is. Mechanically it runs great and everything works, including the originak key coil switch, has normal leaks at some of the seals. The brake lines wheel cylinders and master cylinder have all been replaced. The seats have powder coated frames and replacement cushions covered with vynil, the rear seat is a reproduction. Original seat pans springs and coverings go with the Willys. Wheels are powder coated with white vynil strpes and almost new non directional tires. I believe the Willys a has about 29,000 miles as it has on the speedometer. The wireharness could stand replacing, horn button doesn’t work but the horn does, windshied glass is a litttle scratched. The Willys comes with a complete Monroe three point hitch with a motor mounted hydraulic pump not installed.PTO with rear gear box and farm belt pulley and governor,V belt pulley for generator or welder, belt driven buss saw I believe it’s a Newgren. Front bumper weight, complete operational Linkbelt capstan winch with most original parts, rope roller assy is a reproduction and winch drive bracket is fabricated from steel and works well….”

1946 CJ-2A Virginia $5875


Hog spotted this nicely restored (though not completely stock) CJ-2A.

“This CJ2a was restored by a good friend of our family. He rebuilt the engine and converted it to 12 volts. In the restoration it has received new brakes and I have the kits to convert the drum brakes to pads/calipers on the front. I recently installed a new battery and have new original hood blocks. The front bumper is stainless and custom made. The rear tailgate was taken out and welded solid (I have the original tailgate and it is painted to match the jeep) The front seats have new upholstery and the rear seat is in good condition. The paint job was professionally done. It has an extra fan at the radiator for extra cooling that can be turned off/on using a toggle switch on the dash. It has a new gas tank. This is a nice jeep that is ready to ride daily.”

National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey

• CATEGORIES: Airborne Lightweight Jeeps, Museums • TAGS: , .

I’ve decided to create a new category that tracks the early jeeps located in museums.

Bill Maloney has shot a variety of early jeeps, among other vehicles, that appear in eastern US Museums.  Below are some of the images he has taken at the Militia Museum of New Jersey, in Sea Girt, NJ.  One of the more unique vehicles is the Prototype Extra Light Air Drop (see other lightweight jeeps here). Bill doesn’t provide any info about this particular light weight jeep, however Mark Askew, in his book RARE WW2 JEEP, identifies the vehicle below as a later version of a light weight jeep made my chevrolet.  There is an earlier version of this vehicle that had, at the very least, a slightly different grill and different lights.

Click here to see all of Bill’s 4×4 pics.

Here’s an extended MB Transport Willys (Ok, I don’t really know what the official name for this is).  I assumed these were built special for the Coast Guard?

This is a pilot version of the CJ-2A.  Note the location of the spare tire.

Here is an example of Bantam’s BRC-40.

mb/cj2a Pittsburg, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

It runs and drives.  It is a combo jeep, but the price is good.

“Military Jeep for sale. Yes it runs! Working motor, running gear, transmission. I hate getting rid of it but we’re moving out-of-state and have to figure out how to move 3 vehicles already!
Has: 1942 Ford GPW frame, hood, windshield, grill, and other misc parts (all still have their F stamp visible); 1945 Military engine (running) with new fuel pump; 1946 Willy’s tub and transmission. The transmission is good but the tub is not in great shape.

Needs: seats; fuel tank (we just put the fuel line into a gas tank when we run it); drive shaft (it fell out when we flat towed it to our new place); tires (2 are flat though they’ll hold air long enough to tow it home or put it up on a trailer); We sanded all the old pealing yellow paint off of it and it is primer gray but we never got further than that.

This would make a great parts vehicle (we’ve been told the steering wheel alone is worth $300!) Or for those that are looking to buy a new fabricated tub and throw it on there and have a look-a-like military jeep to play around in (our plan). Or a great starter for a crazy Rock Crawler.
The parts mentioned above are the main F stamped parts so if you’re looking to restore it to a stock gpw it would need a lot. But like I said it’s great as a part donor or casual military jeep lover.

Please note we do not have a title for it, it will be bill of sale only. According to the dmv you just need to get a VIN verification done on it (simple as bringing it down to the CHP office) and DMV will then issue title and registration.  Asking $1200″”

1949 CJ-2A Colorado Springs, Co **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

This sports a fiberglass body, which appears in reasonable shape.  Given the cage and body, I’d say this is a reasonable price.  However, it appears the cage is probably mounted to the body rather than the frame.

“1949 Willys CJ2A Jeep. Has good frame, original 5:38 axles w/ upgraded brakes, heavy springs and I think rear diff locker. No drive train. Has original hood, front fenders and windshield. Tub is fiberglass. Has Bestop soft top frame and door frames (top rotted away). Good title. This is good for a Jeep build starter project, parts, or another Jeep with title problems. CJ2A Jeeps were made from 1945-1949. The flat fender body and frames (except for the CJ3B) are basically the same from 1940-about 1954 when they changed to CJ5.”

1953 Truck Tallmadge, OH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1850.

“I recently purchased this truck to keep as a toy, but I have decided on another project that I did not plan for and need to sell this one ASAP. It is a 1953 Willys truck showing 80,710 miles and has a flatbed in solid useable condition. Engine is an old style original and appropriate 283 Chevy V8 conversion with headers, Cherry Bombs and stacks – so your neighbors will know when you arrive home at 2am! It also has a Warn OVERDRIVE split transmission which is a rare and desireable option and on the dash it says “Warn Overdrive” on a sticker that looks to be original condition. It also has nice bucket seats, good glass, rear hitch and rare cab top clearance lights. Really good condition for 57 years old, solid and not a rust bucket! Has had the rockers, floors and a few places patched. It runs and drives but will need the fuel tank cleaned out and possibly a replacement electric fuel pump. I have only driven it about 50 feet onto my trailer since I have owned it so I don’t know how it goes down the road. Tires have lots of tread and hold air fine, but they have some dry cracking. Surprisingly most everything worked on it – the heater, the window cranks and has both wiper motors that need a little attention. It is by no means a restored truck, but complete enough to do a lot better with and make less ratty.”
