“Here is one neat Jeep. This is a CJ-3B that someone did some nice upgrades too. Originally it would have had a F-Head four cylinder in it. Now the Jeep has a strong running 225 Dauntless V6 that offers the perfect amount of power and torque. It fits the Jeep well. Jeep did use these motors from the mid to late 60’s. They’re great!

Power steering was added and a tilt steering column. The Jeep also and a full roll cage and updated fuse block.

The Jeep is fun! It also has a full soft top and soft doors, winch bumper and a small lift. The body is solid….not all rusted out. The dash has a nice well done gauge cluster and rocker switch panel. The brakes pull a bit if you hit them hard.

Its a great Jeep for running around the ranch, beach, neighborhood etc. Its a clear title, Jeep is located in San Antonio Texas. Thanks”

Some glass is cracked but still intact, both side door windows move freely and come with all original hardware. Back door hardware functions as it should. The top is in very good condition. There is some rust and or holes, on some pieces, but overall, this would be great for a restoration project and is solid. I have the majority of the screws, etc., but they are standard size so replacing is not difficult. Also included are the old interior door panels, which are shot but could be used as templates for replacement.”
