1953 CJ-3A Orange Beach, Al eBay


1953_cj3a_orangebeachHere’s another one of these Willys/Toyota hybrids.  It appears to have been a well executed transformation, though the front bumper is a little underwhelming.

“This auction is for my 1953 Willys Jeep built using my many years of experience owning and using lifted Jeeps as daily drivers.The very clean Willys Jeep body is mounted on a Suzuki Samurai frame. This was done to gain a light weight, fully boxed, straight and rust free frame.  I installed a Toyota 20R mated to a Toyota 4 speed transmission and 2 speed transfer case. These were bought with about 80,000 miles on them per the previous owner.The engine starts immediately and does not smoke. I upgraded to an electronic distributor and purchased a used MSD box (works great). I am also running a remanufactured Holley 32/36 carburetor.The transmission shifter has a lot of play but there are no issues with how it works (it does not  pop out of gear or make noises).  A new clutch was put in when the transmission was installed.”

Builds: Dan replaces the Hudson with a Saginaw


Sometime back, Dan’s grandfather had replaced the stock CJ-5 steering with a Hudson steering mechanism.  However, the bell crank has seen better days, so Dan decided to upgrade to a manual saginaw.  Upgrading to the manual saginaw is rare these days (see various steering upgrade options here), so it’s a nice treat to have Dan document his work for us.  Thanks Dan!

Dan writes:

Here is the Jeep soon after I picked it up from my grandfathers old ranch. I had already started to disassemble it. It’s a 1955 CJ5 which he purchased in 1959. About ten years ago he told me that his best guess was that it had about 500,000 miles on it. It has seen a lot of abuse and he made many modifications to it. That’s a Hudson steering wheel and column.


As you can see in this close up, the frame is broken clean in half just in front of the divers side front wheel.


The bellcrank where he relocated it. It was just about ready to literally fall off. All the welds were broken and only one bent bolt was holding it on.

Year? CJ-2A Worcester, Vt $800


year_cj2a_worcesterUPDATE:  Still available

Here’s a running CJ-2A  with a fiberglass body for only $800.  Sounds like a great price to me.

“I have s Jeep Willys CJ2A the odometer reads 75,000 but it could have turned over or could have been replaced. It runs good on the choke (it needs carb work) the frame seems to be in really good condition, the body is fiberglass and seems to be in okay shape there is some cracks and chips. It will run and move under its own power, the clutch doesn’t engage right probably from sitting, the transmission shifts fine all three gears and the transfer case work, but the levers are worn so it’s kind of hard to switch gears in the transfer case. It also appears to have half a 12 volt electrical system in it, meaning it starts and runs on 12 but all the lights are still 6. I have the doors to with the top and a parts CJ2A to go with it. $800 obo. Call me at (802)-223-2752”

VEC 1946 CJ-2A Grass Valley, Ca **SOLD**


UPDATE: Originally listed at $8000, a long time reader James bought this for less than half that price.  It’s a steal!  And, it includes a stainless grille, which he plans to sell as well, reducing the purchase price even more, because the previous owner threw in the original grille which James will paint and reinstall.  Nicely done James!

James writes, “this is a 1946 VEC CJ-2A #18526, column shift, driver’s indents, no rust. original docs and rear glass light”
