1949 CJ-3A Elk River, MN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900

(01/22/2011) This is a project.  This seller also has a 1948 CJ-2A for sale.

“1948-49 CJ-3A Willys – $1200 (OBO Elk River) Here is a decent starting point for someone interested in building a vintage Willy’s Flat Fender Jeep with V6 power.

This CJ model featured the one piece style windshield which followed the CJ-2A. One photo below shows what it looked like when we got it. The baja tires/rims have been traded off for the traditional slotted 16” rims.

This jeep originally came from Washington State. We received this Willy’s CJ3A in trade. There is no title. There is bill of sale from the previous owner and you would receive that copy and a new one for this sale.

The previous owner acquired this with an odd fire 231 Dauntless V6 (included) & intended to repower it with a newer rebuilt Buick V6 (also included). The price includes both V6’s. The Advance Adapters V6 to T-90 transmission adapter & what appears to be the correct aluminum bell housing are included.

Transmission is a T-90 A-1 Borg Warner, mated to Spicer transfer case, front axle is Spicer 25 and rear axle is whatever original came in 48. Included are both drive shafts and a spare rear axle. I did not open the transmission or transfer case.

The frame was modified by the previous owner in the following ways: a custom front bumper was added, front frame reinforced and designed to accept a winch. A later, manual style, Saginaw steering box is mounted and works fine, V6 motor mounts are welded in as are repositioned radiator and battery mounts.

1972 era Jeep 11” brakes are fitted on the front axle, standard ones are on the back. I replaced the brake cylinders and shoes with new parts and the brake lines on the axles are new. I did not have any drum work done.

When I received it, I removed the tub, sand blasted the frame, painted it with Valspar Farm & Implement Black paint intended as a primer. I’ve worked some on the fenders, grill and hood. Seat frames & gas tank were repainted. The tub is rather rough but workable for someone who knows what they are doing.

We are moving and we need to reduce our number of vintage Willy’s projects. I can also provide you with a Photo CD of every picture I’ve taken regarding what work I’ve done so far.

I also have a complete, mostly original, restoration ready 1948 CJ2A with 12 volt conversion for sale.”

Some Days are Harder than Others ….

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, How To

The plan was simple, fool proof, and, best of all, idiot proof.  But, alas, not Dave proof. The goal, attach my new ‘ewillys’ stickers to plates and attach them to the sides of Biscuit.

Step One: Have stickers made — CHECK.

Step Two: Cut and shape Ovals out of a street sign (note: not snagged from the subdivision down the street, but from a metal yard) — CHECK.

Step Three: Drill plates for mounting holes — CHECK.

Step Four: Attach stickers — FAIL … well, they are ‘stuck on’, but they have bubbles. That’s $50 down the drain — do over time.

See, had I made step Four “Check the internet on mounting vinyl stickers”, I would have been ok. But nooooooo, instead, I cleaned the plates with a degreaser (should have used soap and water), wiped them dry, and then stuck the stickers (should have sprayed some water and a little soap onto the plate and then squeegeed the sticker onto the plate).

Ok, lesson learned.  So, I bolted the stickered plates onto Biscuit, just for kicks.  I stepped back and took one look and knew I had screwed up, again — twice in one day!  See, I thought that hiding the allen bolts, which are black, along the black lines of the ewillys’ script would hide them. But this didn’t happen.  Instead, they disrupt the eye as you read the logo, both close up and from up to 20ft away.  So, now I’m really ticked.  So I mounted the plates to teach myself a lesson — don’t presume to know what you don’t, check the interet first!

When I cool down, I’ll get some new stickers printed, properly attach the stickers, and widen the bolts left and right.

Below is a blurry pic of the attached sticker.  I’ll replace it with a better one tomorrow  …. Hopefully, I’ll keep someone from making the same mistake 🙂

1947 CJ-2A Louisville, Ne $1900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This appears solid.

“This is a 1947 CJ2A, the first civilian jeep built. This jeep is pretty much complete and does run and drive. (smokes a little, especially when first started) It has the stock 134 flathead engine with 3 speed manual transmission, and 4 wheel drive. The body tub is decent and so is the frame. It would be a great jeep to restore! It has a new battery and I replaced the wheel cylinders and shoes, so the brakes work as well. Not pictured, but I have a complete set of seats with decent covers. I also have a hardtop that fits it for sale seperate. Call me for more information. Nathan 402-813-5312.

1948 CJ-2A Denver, Co eBay **STATUS UNKNOWN**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

When someone lists a jeep as ‘professionally restored’, it is only natural that I’ll examine it a little more closely.  It appears sound, but sports an early CJ-2A grille, doesn’t have the bow holders, and is missing, as best as I can tell, windshield wipers.  The custom looks nice.  The strangest issue, in my mind, is that there is white paint around the edges of the gauges (probably just taped off the gauges), which doesn’t look all that professional to me.

“1948 WILLYS JEEP MODEL CJ-2A  4 CYLINDER 4 WHEEL DRIVE,THAT HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED TO SHOW CONDITION.WITH BEAUTIFUL RED PAINT (ORIGINAL COLOR) AND A NEW CONTRASTING ORIGINAL STYLE AND COLOR BLACK SEAT INTERIOR.

“The days of driving a classic that is over 60 years old and feeling like it’s 60 years old are gone once you climb in the driver’s seat, turn the ignition, and step on the gas due to this classic sitting atop of a 1990 Ford Ranger frame. Upgraded to a H.O. 5.0L V-8 with a chrome dress up kit, billet air cleaner, polished intake, Eldlebrock carb, and an aluminum radiator, this Willys is ready to take you on your next road trip or down to the local supermarket for the weekly grocery run….  Power windows bring in the fresh air when you decide to turn off the cold blowing A/C. Disc brakes adds to the realization of having a 60+ year old vehicle as a daily driver is not just a dream, but a reality. Come test drive this Willis and you’ll be wanting to take it home to your driveway!

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $17990.

Did you know that Willys Overland introduced the CJ-3A in 1949 and then introduced the CJ-2A the next year?  That’s a surprise to me, too …. At least they did well with the rest of the history.  It is a good looking jeep.

“Our 1950 Willys-Overland CJ3A features a Small-Block 350 (300 HP), 350 Turbo Automatic Transmission with 4-Wheel Drive. Located at our Benicia Showroom 707.748.4000. For our entire inventory go to www.specialtysales.com This CJ has Power Steering/Brakes, Cruise Control, a Dana 44 Heavy-Duty Front Axle and a Dana 60 Heavy-Duty Rear Axle as well as a Dana 20 Transfer Case. There are many more upgrades – too many to list!, The Willys CJ (later Jeep CJ) is a public version of the famous Willys Military Jeep from World War II. The first CJ prototype (the Willys CJ-2) was introduced in 1944 by Willys, and the same basic vehicle stayed in production through seven variants and three corporate parents until 1986. A variant of the CJ is still in production today under license. The last CJs, the CJ-7 and CJ-8, were replaced in 1987 by the Jeep Wrangler., The Willys-Overland CJ-3A was introduced in 1949, and replaced the CJ-2A by the next year. It featured a one-piece windshield with a vent as well as wipers at the bottom, and a beefed up suspension to accommodate the various agricultural implements that were being built for the vehicle.”
