1950 CJ-3A Chassis/Parts Winchester, TX $900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Parts

No pics provided.

https://austin.craigslist.org/snw/d/west-point-jeep-parts/7091091266.html

“1950 CJ3A Rolling Chassis with Jeep F161 6 cylinder engine. Good grill. usable fenders and hood, body junk! No title. Comes with an extra L134 engine, two good L134 heads, 2 repairable CJ5 fenders, two military Jerry can holders,one bell housing, one red Jerry can, one heavy duty brush guard, one extra Jeep wheel, one radiator with a good copper core (fits pickup or wagon)and boxes of gears, shafts, speedometer heads, one T84 shift plate,one mirror assembly, and several buckets of bolts, nuts, and small parts.

This Jeep was to be my next rebuild, but at 79 years old, I decided to clean house and give it up. Most of the parts are an accumulation of parts from Jeeps that I restored over the last 50 years.Two of my Nephews have Jeeps that I passed along to them. One is a 67 CJ5 with a V6 engine and is for sale for $4500.00 and the other is a 1942 GPW that is 85% original and is for sale for $9,000. Both run very well. Both Jeeps are in Winchester

I will consider any reasonable offer on the CJ3A and parts. The price on the GPW is firm but the 67 price is negotiable. The CJ3A and part’s price is also negotiable and will consider any reasonable offer for all of it as one package. The two flat heads sell at Kaiser Willys for $300.00 ((new) and the L134 engine block (new) is $2000.00.”

“An incredibly clean and functioning 1947 Willys CJ-2A Militarized MB Jeep. This little sweetheart is exceptionally clean, the original body was replaced with an MB body (military jeep). The body is completely free of rust. The body and details of the Jeep are very authentic along with the appointments of a World War II Jeep. The top and seats are in great condition and appear completely authentic. The engine does not leak oil or coolant. The engine runs nicely and starts reliably. The Jeep turns heads wherever it shows up. Truly a wonderful piece of Americana.”

1964 CJ-3B Marissa, IL $2000

UPDATE: Seller indicates it includes a Gov plate, so it was likely a Gov/military purchased CJ-3B.

This has a ventilating windshield.  It does appear to have a place on the dash with four holes where a gov data plate could have been.

1964-cj3b-il1 1964-cj3b-il2 1964-cj3b-il3 1964-cj3b-il4

“This is a 1964 Military Jeep for sale that is like a M606.
The army and the navy were the only ones to use these jeeps, and they were intended for more mundane duties around bases and such.
It does have the original military wheels and most of the original hard top (the side and rear doors are missing).
The engine is stuck, and the radiator is long gone (scrappers stole it along with the doors years ago).
I have the original body tags along with the reproduction brass military tag.

No title, but will provide a bill of sale.

Accepting any reasonable offer. I would like to see it go to someone who knows what it is versus it becoming a start for a crawler or mud buggy.”

1948 Montana Farmer-Stockman Jeep & Truck Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: I mistakenly list a September 1949 Ad as a September 1948 ad. I removed that, so now there are only seven ads on this post. 

Willys-Overland ran a series of Universal Jeep and Truck ads in the Montana Farmer-Stockman newspaper through 1948. The ads for the Universal Jeep focused on farming and ranching and appear most, but not all months (The paper is archived at the Library of Congress and appears to have been a bi-monthly publication). Below are seven ads I could find. In 1949, the number dropped to only 4 ads.

Hood Strips Ever a Factory Option?

• CATEGORIES: Features

Someone on Facebook claimed that hood strips were a factory option, though without specificity as to which model of jeep in which time period such an option was offered. I was not aware of this option nor have I seen any documentation for such an option. Of course, I’ve seen plenty of jeeps for sale with hood strips, but never saw much consistency among the designs.

So, anyone know 1) were hood strips ever a factory option? 2) were they ever a dealer option? 3) were they ever featured as a special equipment option? 4) if any of these are true, does anyone have documentation?

Here’s an example of wood strips:

UPDATE: Price dropped to $13,200

https://redding.craigslist.org/cto/d/klamath-falls-rare-1966-jeep-cj-6/7082576761.html

“This CJ-6 is in excellent condition, very rare and comes with the desired Dauntless V-6 and a 4 speed Manual Transmission. The Jeep has had a lot of maintenance and upgrades done to it. It comes with an ExtremeAire on board compressor and all the tools you’ll need to inflate or deflate your tires for whatever terrain you’re in. The Wild Country XTX 255/85 16s are almost brand new. Rancho RS 5000 shocks, locking glove box and rear tool box. Fully carpeted, full padded roll-cage, and the seats are in excellent condition with the exception of one small split on the driver’s seat.

This Jeep comes from Eastern Oregon in high desert country, very easy on the body of older vehicles. The paint is in good condition, but there are a few cracks and worn areas, (see photos). The vehicle has been parked for a few years, but always indoors. The top is in excellent condition and looks almost new. It probably could use a good tune-up, but it runs and drives great. You would have to look very hard to find a CJ-6 in better condition. Feel free to email or text with any questions.”

1951 Wagon San Jose, CA $5400

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

Seller has driven this wagon over Hwy 17. That’s a good roadworthy test. I’ve saw more accidents on that hwy in the three years I drove it than I have anywhere else.

I once saw a driver in a car right in front of me, going up hill, lose control, for seemingly no reason, and veer into the concrete median, then cross two lanes to hit the side embankment, then slam back into the median, before coming to rest in the slow lane.  I remember locking eyes with the female driver. Her eyes were big, seemingly saying, “what the hell just happened”. I also had two narrow escapes on that highway where I could have been seriously injured.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto/d/san-jose-1951-willys-wagon-jeep/7088153637.html

“I built this car about a year ago with my uncle. It drives, I had a blast working on it and taking it to and from Santa Cruz, yes it made it over the hill. But I just moved and can’t house it at the moment. Please let me know if you are interested”
