1951? CJ-3A? Gold River, CA $5400


A ‘ran when parked’ classic build with some old school art on the back. Looks like this was a neat rig back in its day.

“Awesome rebuild project for somebody.
Registered as a 1951 but vin comes up as built in 1947
Body is strait. Does have some bondo work.
v8 with custom headers. It did run when it was parked 15 years ago”

1948 CJ-2A Lake Stevens, WA $10,000


Interesting roll bar supports that are welded onto the front shackles of the rear springs (see pic #2). They don’t seem to connect the roll cage. Maybe they help support the body? Note that the front shackles have been reversed.

“1964 Willys CJ3A for sale. Kaiser Jeep Corporation This is a highly modified Jeep from CA built for serious off-road use but is still a very nice vehicle. It can crawl off-road and still cruise down the highway at 70+ mph. With short wheel base 55 seems like a better idea though. Frame and Body are rust free and in great shape. The list of modification is:
1. CJ3A Body came from a DJ3A (two wheel drive). Restored 11 years ago white exterior with Rhino Lining inside. Assembled after painting and spraying the liner so a very clean look.
2. Driveline

1946 CJ-2A Crawler Modesto, CA $15,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/24/2019) Seller is still working on this.

1946-cj2a-crawler-modesto-ca8 1946-cj2a-crawler-modesto-ca9

“I’m currently working on a hand built rock buggy that started life as a 1946 Willys flatfender Jeep. I’m still working on it when time allows but I’m willing to let it go if someone wants to make a decent offer. This project is still a long way from being finished but the chassis is fully welded, suspension is complete minus shock mounts, drivetrain is positioned, engine accessories in place, radiator mount half finished, etc. A lot of tube work, body work, all the small details, and finishing work are still needed. You could say it’s basically a good rolling chassis.

100% of the work up to this point has been done by me over the last several years. The frame is 2x4x0.125 box tubing and the round tube is mostly 1.5×0.120 DOM. The 2” roll cage tubing is HREW I believe. Motor mounts, radiator mounts, most of the suspension link mounts are hand made since I didn’t want to compromise with pre-fab stuff.
