I’m guessing this is a 3A by the way the bumper mounts.

1952 CJ-3A? Greeley, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $995.

No engine. No gauges on the dash.

“Previous owner said this was a 1952 Willys… No idea what exact model. There is no title and no engine currently in the Jeep.

It had a Chevy 350 in it at one point and is still set up for that. It has what appears to be the original transmission (with a 350 bell housing), the original transfer case, driveshafts, and axles. The frame appears solid and has been boxed in. The body is rough but but it’s still there and solid enough for a trail/ farm rig.  Make me an offer! Phone calls only please!”

For some reason my wife and an ex-girlfriend of mine both think Matt Damon’s character reminds them of me? Maybe the just want to stick me on a planet far far away? Hmmmmmm.

1951? Truck & Parts Freeland, MI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

Jake’s selling this truck and parts.

“hi there, i have a 1951? willy’s pickup truck for sale. it is an early truck because it has the split rear axle, split windshield and early gauge cluster. Engine runs great. has the f134 overhead vale 75hp engine. she moves and shifts great. IT IS A 4X4 1 Ton pickup… at least back in 1951 it was rated as a 1 ton 😛 she does not have brakes 😛 body is so so…Needs love. Frame has rust out in some spots but it was common on the willys pickup trucks. i have another frame that can be used to repair some of it. that frame has rust out too. have another cab with glass in it that is not cracked and i have very good glass for the front windshield. have another set of axles that comes with it to… they have locking hubs and are from a later willys pickup but would great on this truck too. i have a bunch of the harder to find parts for this pickup too like glass for the marking lights and stuff like that.

this willys would make a GREAT winter project. i have too many projects and could use the money for better uses like for my wedding 🙂 the cons are: i dont have a title for it and there is not a vin tag on it so that would be a hurdle you would have to cross at some time.”

H.C.L. Sieberg Netherlands “Peace Jeep” Importer

• CATEGORIES: Airborne Lightweight Jeeps, Features

The Netherlands firm of H.C.L. Sieberg began selling jeeps in 1946 after acquiring 1400 jeeps from an army depot. The firm bought an additional 1000 jeeps. In May of 1946 Director L.F.J. Mählmeijer visited Toledo to secure an agreement for supply Sieberg with parts. Sieberg got permission to import four CJ-2As, called the “peace jeep” in the Netherlands, for demonstration purposes. It was an uphill battle, but overtime, the government allowed the company to import more jeeps for agricultural purposes.

Below are some examples of Sieberg brochures printed in Dutch. Thanks to Charles for sharing these photos. The photos and the history was published at conam.info in Dutch. You can read an english translated version of the page here.
