1953 CJ-3B Denton, TX $1500


This might have some Husky/Allstate hubs, but can’t tell for sure.

“All original, would be great for a restoration project. Was purchased with another CJ3B mid-restoration, thought I might need it for parts but would rather sell it and put the money toward my main project. Should run with a little time spent on maintenance. Would also consider trade for a Warn overdrive, large industrial air compressor, or other Willys Jeep parts/implements, (hard top, PTO winch, rear PTO transfer case, etc.) If you have Willys Jeep parts, let’s talk. Let me know if you have any questions.”

Late husbands project and love (Jeeps) this one was in progress when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and passed 8 wks later.

I wonder if all the Yellow Fleet rental jeeps were painted light yellow like this one? I’m guessing the color of the photo might be off a little, which gives the CJ-6 a bit of a green tint. This was taken by Bob Petley.
