1950 CJ-3A St. Paul, MN $5000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

Has some rust in the spare tire mount area. The driver’s side front rim has three holes drilled in it. I can’t remember seeing that on any other rims? The odd look of the photos appear to be a quick removal of background stuff from the photos, which, depending on what you have in your garage, is a good idea.

“Hello, I am selling a 1950 Willys Jeep CJ3-A. This Jeep was running and insured but has been stored inside and not driven the last few years. I have a title for it and it will also need tabs. It maybe needs a battery as well, It is still on 6 volt current, a 12 volt battery was hooked in for ease of starting. It has the Go-Devil 4 cylinder and manual transmission and 4 wheel drive. The body is better then many of the Jeeps of this era that I have seen, it needs TLC and is not perfect but solid. It is a good Jeep that should be driven. I also have a brand new 300.00 windshield and weather striping for the Jeep if interested. Contact me with any questions. 5,000 obo Will consider serious offers, Thank You”

1947 & 1948 Ads for Jeep as Farm Vehicle

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images

These two ads were published in the same newspaper a year apart. The 1947 ad highlights the versatility of the farm vehicle and, as an added bonus, its versatility cuts costs. The 1948 ad emphasizes the cost savings, because the jeep is versatile. It’s basically the same message, but with different emphases.

This April 4, 1947, ad from A.B. Clothier & Son in the Oxford Leader highlighted the farm versatility of the Universal Jeep.
