1954 CJ-3B Abilene, Tx **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

HOG spotted this one. I looked back in my posts for this CJ-3B, but it doesn’t appear to be there.  I’m sure it’s all good, but just in case … the seller buys the jeep for the dad from cali and now is selling for the mom, except the title was never transferred from cali, so wouldn’t the seller actually be selling it for himself as the signer on the old title? Finally, the serial number of #4J37357 is incorrect, so I’d investigate that as well.

“I bought this Jeep for my Dad back in March 2010…He has since past away and I have no need of another Jeep, So I am selling this for my Mom. It is a 1954 Willys CJ3B that has had some modifications done to it over the years…. There is nothing wrong with the jeep it runs and drives fine…..Someone has taken chrome diamond plate and made a dash for it with all the gagues and added a Tachometer……It has a Tow bar and high lift jack that come with it……..If you are going to drive it on the highway the tires will need to be balanced and at some point it will need tires…The motor is a 260 Ford V8 with dual exhaust and starts and runs great…..Brakes all work good…..Transmission and overdrive shift fine…..All gauges work…Has a complete soft top with doors and a roll bar…… Seats are not torn but do not match in color…..The front end and steering box are out of a later mdel Jeep and all the 4 wheel drive works fine….It has two gas tanks,but only one is hooked up….There is no rust on the Jeep the floors panels are solid and rust free has a few minor digs in the hood and body, but nothig major……Tail gate has been replaced with solid panel…..Someone has added leafs to the spring and a set of Air shocks in the rear……I have a low reserve on this Jeep in order to sell quickly,it’s worth much more than the reserve price….It has a clear transferable California title………Ask questions before bidding…Sold as is…I can store for 6 months with payment made in full…. If you are serious about it I can e-mail more pictures.”

1960 FC-150 Dublin, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $2750 … it appears this was SOLD

“This little sucker is COOL, with a capital K! This is a running registered and stopping Willys Jeep FC-150. Rare little gem that she is, she is the last car I want to sell of the many cars I will be selling to meet this months mortgage, so the price is more than I think it would probably sell for locally unless it went on ebay, but I really dont want to sell it. It does have bad rear cab sorners, and some rust in the floor of the bed, and some at the flat floor areas and door corners etc, but overall is really really cool. I wouldn’t do a dan g thing to her except tinker and drive. She is a blast to drive around town, though she isnt super fast do to really low gears , and the anemic 134? 4 banger. Shoot me offers, but keep in mind I really want to keep it, so I am going to try an sell the others cars cheap first. Willy’s or Willys works also.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Comstock Park, MI **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Here is a very early VEC #10928.

You are bidding on a very very early Willys civilian column shift CJ2A Jeep with serial # CJ2A 10928. They started with serial # 10,001 in 1945 on the civilian jeep so this jeep was the 928th civilian Willys off the production line after WWII. They only made 1824 civilian jeeps in 1945 and over 71,000 jeeps in 1946 so this is a very rare Willys.

It’s a column shift that has been converted to floor shift but still has the column shift transmission case and the column shift on the steering column.
All three serial number tags match, two on the body and one on the frame.
It has a working snow plow with hydraulic lift that runs off the motor (not electric). It runs, drives and the 4X4 works in high and low range, the drivers side floor has holes in it but the frame is solid, has a body panel over where the tail gate goes and has had side panels added covering the shovel & axe dents on the drivers side, but you can see them from the inside.

Comes with many new parts not installed as pictured like the parking brake handle & mechanism, 4 new rod ends, new bell crank rebuild kit, new center rear view mirror, new wood blocks for the hood, new tale pipe, one used wheel lock out, OE used column shift lever, and used OE cover that goes over the transmission hole.  I was going to restore it but I don’t have time or the room.  Has wider 15″ rims for the Michigan sand dunes.  I’m hoping for a good home with someone who will restore it.”

Some Updates …

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Builds, Features

For the Fourth of July, I celebrated by heading back to the formerly snow bound roads near Boise’ only ski area, Bogus Basin.  As you can see in this pic, the snow is gone (see snow pics here), the mountains are now in bloom, and more progress was made.  More on that tomorrow ….

A 1950 CJ-3A: Today, Darrel had to talk to me.  So he stopped next to me, while I waited at a stop light, rolled down his window, and started asking me questions — what year was my jeep, who did my roll cage, and more …

Now, I had no idea who Darrel was.  However, in the time it took for the stop light to finally change colors, Darrel had explained through his passenger side window that he A) liked what I had built, B) had a 1950 CJ-3A, C) wanted his jeep rebuilt for his daughter, D) had his jeep nearby, and E) wanted me to follow him there.  If I learned that much at a stop light, I wondered how much I would learn about him once we stopped to see his jeep.

True to his word, he lived very close and had a 1950 CJ-3A that needed some work — hadn’t been run in 15 years.  It had a V-8 conversion, solid body, rotted top and plenty of potential.  And, to my surprise, based on my jeep, he asked me to do the work (and will pay me). I don’t have pics of this just yet.  I’ll share more about this if we go forward with the project.

Brian wrote to me late last week to share a sad tale.  As a part of the continued testing with his new build, he learned the hard way what happens if the oil in the front pumpkin housing gets too low AND the 4wd somehow gets accidentally shifted into gear (how that happened is still a mystery to him).  The result:  his front pinion started freezing up, resulting in some ugly sounds and a twisted driveline. See the pics to the right.

The good news is that everything else continues to behave well.

1952 M-38A1 Waxahatchie, Tx eBay

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, M-38A1

Here’s an old fire jeep.  It turns over and run, but there’s a mechanical problem of some kind.

“Mfg. Serial Number 21583. Date of Delivery 9/52. I bought two of these Jeeps in a package deal. I only want one of them, so I am selling this one. This Jeep would make a nice Jeep to restore. The body has a few bad places on it but all or easily repairable. There is very little rust on this Jeep, you can tell from the photos that the floorboards and toolbox is rust free. This jeep was used as a Fire Truck Brush Jeep and had at one time had a small tank in the rear floorboard. A couple of holes were placed in the floorboard for hoses leaving the tanks but I think they could easily be patched. The engine does turn over but there must be a problem in the drive train because it pulls hard when in gear. In any case it would make a nice Jeep to do a ground up restoration on. There isn’t a title for this Jeep but I will include with a Bill of Sale. Sold as is where is with no warranties expressed or implied. Selling it as a parts vehicle to be restored.”

1949 CJ-3A San Angelo, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000.

This looks in good shape.

“1949 Willys Jeep in great condition. Only a small bit of rust on the undercarriage. Otherwise the Jeep is in outstanding condition. The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner and always starts easy and runs strong. The roll bar and front and rear bumpers are custom made with a detachable tow bar and receiver adapters for winch or other uses. All tires are new. The transmission and transfer case both work well and appear to be original. The electrical system has been converted to 12 volts and has a GM alternator. All lights work and backup lights have been installed for general use or field dressing game animals. The brakes work well, but the master cylinder leaks. It has not been registered since 1999, but can easily be registered as an antique. I have not owned this Jeep very long and really don’t need it, however I have enjoyed driving it and it’s more fun than an ATV.”

Has steering column mounted gear shift, only the first 20,000 CJ’s had this. Also, pioneer tool body indents carried over from the military Jeeps and eliminated shortly after this serial #. The Jeep is 85% complete with original equipment including 3 of the original Goodyear tires. Missing items are back seat (if it came with one), combo coil/ignition switch that was under the dash on early CJ’s, original NACO tail light, gas tank, side mirror and top bows. I think it has an original early style under dash heater (in a box?) …”
