year-cj3b-victoria-tx

“1954? Willys CJ3B mostly complete except for engine head and correlated components above the bad engine block. All running gear is in tact, just needs motor and complete restoration. Don’t ask me if it is rusty, YES it is sixty six years old for crying out loud! And no i will not deliver and i am not parting it out, period! Price is $800 and those who know it is well worth this in parts alone so don’t bother wasting your (i said your) time lowballing me because I won’t answer you if you do, if you show up and low ball me you’ll go home without the jeep.

I also have a bunch of misc. random Willys Jeep parts i have collected over the years, if you’re needing something particular email me your needs and i will look to see if i have it. Parts for old Willys flatfenders pre Kaiser. 1941 through 1951 era. Most of what i have will need attention or some sort of repair before use.”
