Army 1960 CJ-3B Fort Meade, MD **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500

(01/22/2011) A reader named Luke asked me to post his CJ-3B that was originally purchased by the Army.  I double checked to make sure this wasn’t a M-606 and the seller assured me that it was a CJ-3B and notes that “The data tag is marked SN 62151, which matches the last 5 digits of the VIN. All data tags are included in the sale.”  You can contact the seller through the craigslist ad or contact me and I’ll provide his contact info.

“For your consideration is a 1960 CJ3B, which was purchased under contract from Willys by the Army. It has the data tag, with serial number matching the underhood data tag to confirm this. Early in the life of the jeep, it was modified with two fuel tanks, either by the factory, or by the Army.

The engine, transmission, transfer case, and differentials are all in excellent operational condition. There is no smoke produced by the engine when running, and little to no noise when driving.

The brakes are rebuild and work well, the paint was applied by me. There is some rust, but it’s very typical of older jeeps, and does not harm the jeep. The jeep is currently registered as a Maryland Historic Vehicle.”

1959 Wagon Cornville, Az $1250

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

It runs.

“This is a 1959 Willy’s Wagon 4×4 with Over-drive and a V-6 engine that starts and runs. I wouldn’t call it road ready, it needs tires, rear springs re-arched or replaced and brake work but wouldn’t take much to make it work. The drivers side floor does have some rust. I don’t know much more about it since I got is as part of a boat deal and thought I would re-chassis it since it all seems there. I felt too guilty to tear it apart after getting a restoration book so it needs to go. It is 4×4, has over-drive, all the chrome, trim/bumpers and the glass are in pretty good shape and the oak strips in the back look good too. I’m not trying to sell something its not, it is what it is and would be a fun project. Call or email me if you want any more information or pictures of something specific. The title is clear and good. I’ll even throw in the restoration book too if you want it! (9 two 8) 3 zero zero-3 9 five six.”

My Visit With Dan

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE: Dan forwarded a pic of his yoke.  Despite grounding the sm420 rib, the yoke still won’t make it by the tranny while spinning.

For the last year, Dan has invited me up to take a look at his project: the rebuilding of his grandfather’s jeep. Well, I finally got a chance to drop by his remote Deer Park, Washington, home.  

As soon as I arrived, my gracious host gave me the cold beer he had promised, a very tasty bottle of Red Hook.  Soon after, his four kids wandered in the garage to see what kind of strange guy would drive all the way to Deer Park to look at a jeep and talk with dad.  Clearly unimpressed, they dashed back into the endless , densely treed property like baseball players from the movie Field of Dreams.

Meanwhile, Dan and I looked over his jeep and we talked about various issues he circumvented.  He said his goal was to build something functional that he wouldn’t be afraid to scratch and dent, so he didn’t sink much time or money into the body.  For example, the rust in the bottom of the body was repaired with some fiberglass and steel from the old body sitting across the driveway.  It was nothing fancy, but sound.  He was concerned it might not be nice enough, but I told him the most important thing is that it satisfied his goals, was solid, and got him closer to exploring backroads.

We also talked about his sm420 tranny. His yoke is hitting the side of the tranny, despite the grinding he has done (I should have gotten a pic of that).  He’s hoping he can find the slightly smaller V6 yoke.  Does anyone have one of those?

While we talked, his wife dropped by to say hello.  We chatted a bit and then she dashed off to finish supper.  Dan noted that he convinced his wife he needed a new garage to work on the jeep  by parking his jeep inside the existing garage.  That seemed to work, so he built a new shop around the jeep project just down the driveway.  It’s a fine man cave, clean, organized, with plenty of light.

I asked Dan to take my picture with his jeep and he kindly obliged.  After which, I left his piece of paradise to head south so I could hang out with my cousin and explore family history. So, many thanks to Dan for a pleasant time.  It was worth the drive!

Here’s yours truly.

1953 CJ-3B Van Nuys, Ca eBay


Well, if the seller spent more time on eWillys, he would see more original, less unlatered CJ-3Bs!  That aside, Rich spotted this solid looking flattie that could use some light body work.

“This is the most original and unaltered CJ3B I have ever seen. We bought it to laser scan and Faro Arm track the body, to create a digital model for a special project. So now that we are done, I am ready to sell this little vintage patina jewel to the next guy to enjoy. It has sat in our warehouse for the last year, doing nothing. We inspected and serviced it lightly. You may want to comb through it before a major outing. We made sure it stops, steers and runs well. It is 100% original. Engine is super smooth, and super simple. 35K original miles. Original paint and markings, even the original wood windshield frame perches are still there! No rust, a few bumps and bruises, but an exceptional virgin CJ. Thanks for looking! JW

TLC is a licensed California dealership. We specialize in vintage Toyota Land Cruisers. Document and paperwork fee of $110 will be added to high bidder. Feel free to come visit. Global shipping can be arranged, at buyers expense”

The Jeep runs and drives fine for it’s age. I think the engine is original to Jeep when new SN: 33934 holds a little more than 20psi @ idle and about 35-40psi running. It is a column shift but someone cut the shifter @ the floor and put a top shifter in. I have the shifter that was cut and a good one that is included. I have all the linkage and a tranny cover for the floor, but do not have the top plate for the tranny itself. All the wiring is original and most everything works all 6 volt. Coil has been moved to the block but I have the one that mounts on the dash with the key. Very little rust two holes one on eather side in the floor “Wood in hat chanles” that make it rust. Someone has pachedunder the gas tank, tool box solid. I do not have the tail light. All the parts that are never there are!! crank pully guard, splash shield under starter, sheild on frount cross member etc all in place. I am telling you this is one ove the most compleat and original I have ever seen. VERY EASY TO RESTORE. clear Oregon title questions call Dave 541-892-4557″
