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.”

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.”

“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.”
