Was driven to my street 20 yeas ago by previous owner) and not run since. Make no claim as to drive components or brakes now. All major components on hand but completion would require several misc items. Not body-off but body and frame have been sandblasted. That alone was $700. Clear AZ title. $1550 OBO

1954-cj3b-atlanta-ga10 1954-cj3b-atlanta-ga11
This is a solid 1954 CJ-3B with an original rust-free body and original-style drivetrain. It had a frame off restoration at some point. The correct F-head engine is from an M38-A1.
It has the correct T-90A transmission, Dana 18 transfer case, Dana 44 rear axle, and Dana 25 front axle.

It also has a Koenig 50 PTO with front and rear outputs. The front PTO powers the Koenig 151-J winch.

This Jeep is a wonderful vehicle to escape the stress of daily life. It will take you to spectacular scenery and introduce you to a great group of fellow vintage Jeep enthusiasts. It is nice enough to take to a car show and capable enough to take you out into the woods on a dirt trail.

I have done a lot of maintenance within the last year. Including a new radiator and all belts & hoses, new brake master cylinder and brake hoses, complete ignition system, 12-volt Optima red top battery with cut-off switch, and so on.

Windshield wipers and turn signals have been added. I installed a new Bestop Tigertop within the last year.

The Whens and Whys of the Willys-Overland “J” Logo

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE III: Maury spotted the a “J” dealership sign example on this Miller Tools brochure:

willys-miller-tools-hires-cover-lores

UPDATE II: I’ve added two examples of ‘dark’ “J”s, dark (blue or black) background with white letters. Now that I think about it, I guess this is similar to the black and white newspaper versions.

Harry Payne Motors, photograph, June 3, 1942; (https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth34338/m1/1/: accessed April 7, 2019), University of North Texas Libraries, The Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu; crediting Austin History Center, Austin Public Library. … MY NOTES: The photo year is more likely late 1947 or 1948.

dark-willys-jeep-willys-world-march-april-1991-lores

From Willys World March-April 1991 issue.

UPDATE: This is best described as a working draft that Maury Hurt and I have constructed in the hopes of understanding Willys-Overland’s “J” logo better …. If you have input, please email me or add it in a comment at the bottom of the post.

In January of this year, Maury emailed me about a Willys/Cars•Trucks/Jeep logo that he was hoping to reproduce, wondering if I had any better examples of it. That simple email turned into a mission: Find out the history behind the logo.

Willys Cars Trucks Jeep

I have one of these patches. Not sure who created them or when.

It turned out that we could find no articles or discussion about the evolution of the logo. So, we spent a month looking through old brochures and advertisements to develop a theory of what it should look like, when it was used, and why.

What’s the logo supposed to look like?

Our first challenge was to determine what the logo was supposed to look like. As these examples show, different fonts and slightly different looks were used in the printing of the logo.

Willys Cars Trucks Jeep 2

Another patch example.

1946-01-j-cars-trucks-willys-jeep-logo-lores-crop

This was from a January 1946 magazine ad.

1945-Willys-Cars-Trucks-j-logo-B-lores

or even this one …

j-logo-international

Our suspicion is that this is from overseas, possibly Australia? We don’t have a time frame on this one.

And, the list would not be complete without some matchbook covers:

How should the “J” look?

“1949 3A Willys Jeep. Has GO Devil. 134 cubic inch with 60 HP. Very nice Jeep and loved att the car shows. I also run in local parades and run around town locally. She runs great. Never in the rain or snow. Original body as you can see was gone so I went south for another body. Jeep has 12 volt 3 wire GM alt. and charging and lights are no problem. Also installed electronic ignition recentlyalong with Warn front hubs.
She still needs a few things like a set of leaf springs as these are getting weak and a 2nd gear sycronizer. It will pop out of second when down shifting but pulls fine. Easy fixes. Prices came from Hemmings. Never thought I would sell but health forces me to.She is not perfect but very nice.”

“A very nice HISTORIC convertible ready to go.
Orig 4 cyl engine and 3 speed column transmission. Both were overhauled by previous owner who died before finishing his pride and joy. The car has lived it’s whole life in Oklahoma, and was finished by his son and then sold to dealer at estate auction.
The mileage reads 23,247. Cars runs great, shifts easy and rides smooth. Lights, brake lights and horn all work. It was repainted years ago in it’s original yellow color. Wide white wall poly tires are in excellent condition and run smooth. Brakes are very good and stop better than my truck. The car has no radio (optional in “48) and no heater (also optional) and your arm is the turn signal (I have TS kit that goes with the car). All these can easily be retro-fitted. The gas gauge is erratic but I have a complete extra dash that goes with car that will fix that problem. The orig generator has been replaced with a new 6v alternator for better spark and starting (old gen goes with the car).
All chrome is excellent, no rust. Floor pan has been replaced
The top canvas and back glass is in excellent condition and easily goes up and down, manually.
I purchased the car a couple of years ago. I have done some minor work on it but my 83 years have finally caught up with me and seriously limit my efforts.”
