1954 CJ-3B Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I believe these two CJ-3B brochures were put out in 1954. The red one was published initially, followed by the yellow one, which was printed without the KW logo and other minor changes.

This revised version of the CJ-3B brochure was also printed in 1954.

(09/27/2019) Has some surface rust. More pics would be useful. I suspect the seller means “Rubicon” trail and not “Yukon” trail.

1958 CJ-6 San Gabriel, CA $9000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: .

Gauges do not work. I think it has a Kelly hardtop?

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/cto/d/san-gabriel-1958-willys-jeep-cj6/7017645612.html

1958-cj6-sangabriel-ca6 1958-cj6-sangabriel-ca7 1958-cj6-sangabriel-ca8 1958-cj6-sangabriel-ca9

“Mostly original – 4cyl hurricane engine, 3 spd transmission, front lock/unlock hubs, 6V, minimal rust. HARD TOP with glass in-tact. Matching spare wheel. Engine bay reasonably clean, engine and drive train needs solid cleaning. Runs well and starts every time.

I bought this as project sight unseen. Was going to resto-mod it but I can’t bring myself to hack into and part out something this original. It is truly great condition considering its age. Last owner put $1500+ into normal repairs back in May of 2019. I had it shipped out here and have slowly been poking around at it but have not started doing anything major.

Details: Gauges not working, 6 volt (although new battery), wiring has had a few things added but it is mostly original. Tires hold air but are not road-worthy. 26485 on the ODO but it isn’t working. This is a perfect Willys for someone looking for a super vintage restoration.

Currently clean titled in Colorado. Pink slip in hand. Asking $9000 OBO. Also interested in trades for other Willys / Jeep / etc. If you are at all interested please send me an email. I have a few Jeep projects underway so I’m looking to make a deal!”

CJ-3B and CJ-3A? Bakersfield, CA $2500/Each

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, CJ-3B

$2500 each or $4000 for both. The 3B has the passenger side vent, and no script on the hood, so it might be later 60s model. The ‘1945’ has rear floaters, but might be a 3A.

https://bakersfield.craigslist.org/pts/d/bakersfield-willys-jeeps/7016972895.html

“Two (2) Willys Jeep projects, 1945 & 1954 both are complete less motors, these are barn find projects, Wife says I have too many projects and need to down size, asking $2,500.00 each or $4,000.00 as a package deal. May consider trade for a good welder.”

“I’m selling a cj2a from 1946 because I just don’t have time to finish it as I planned. I have done a lot of work to it such as: boxed in the frame, adapted Buick v6 motor mounts, adapted 1978 3” cj5 springs for a really nice ride along with a 4” lift, I put a amc 20 rear end in it along with a Dana 30 disc brake front end, it has a “shovel” cross member/skid plate(this makes the frame very strong and protects the tranny well). I have all the body parts but the hood. It has factory 1978 chrome cj5 wheels. All parts are in good shape, no rot. It has original vin tag.”

“Up for sale is my 1946 Willys driver, I bought it about 6 months ago as a fun toy and it was a blast to own. It was previously restored in 2006 to make this a bulletproof driver. It’s not perfect by any means, but the patina is PERFECT. It is very reliable, gets all the looks, compliments and conversations. Unfortunately the time has come to part ways with her. I just don’t get to drive it as often as I thought I would.

With the chevy 4.3l it starts right up, every time, and has plenty modern day power and torque to enjoy the driving experience. Message me for running driving videos of the truck I can send you. Truck is mechanically sound and doesn’t need anything. I have the rear seats as well if anyone is interested in adding that into the truck. Has a 3in body lift and oversize tires. Please let me know if you have any questions. Can try to answer to the best of my knowledge and supply any additional photos you might need.

Title is in hand, and registration is non-op. Just need to transfer and pay registration.”

There is both a two dimensional fake FJ-3 and a three dimensional real FJ-3. This is obviously the fake one:

And here are two photos of the real one:

5 Folded Brochures of Different Models on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: There are more of these five-brochure sets on eBay. View all the info on eBay. These are five out of the 20 issued (Form 600-01 through 600-20) during 1960. Slightly different, but similar brochures were published in 1959 (Form 59-01 through 59-20). The form number can be found at the bottom of the brochures. I’m working on assembling an entire list for each year. 

(02/09/2017) I bought and received a set of these. By the time you factor in the exchange rate, this is a good price.

“These are five small format (22 x 9 cms) six page two colour sales brochure folders for the 1960 Jeep range for the US market.
Produced by Willys Motors Inc in Toledo Ohio, in English and undated, but they are around 1960
All open out to about A4 size with good pics and specifications.
Covers the following models:
1960 Jeep Universal CJ-6
1960 Jeep Utility Wagon
1960 Jeep Pick-up Truck
1960 Jeep FC-150 Forward Control Truck
1960 Jeep FC-170 Forward Control Truck”

1959 or 1960 Mailer Brochure?

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Anyone have this brochure?

I don’t have it; but do have these old pics from a 2013 post. The problem is I can’t quite tell what the date (aka form number) is from 1959 or 1960. If you have this brochure, the date would be great. Scans would even be better, but I know that’s not simple for everyone.

I’m also interested in other 1958-1962 brochures. These all have date related-form numbers. I have a bunch, but not all of them. At some point this month I will create a list of what I have and what I need to more fully document the brochures from this era.
