1953 CJ-3B Centerville, OH $2000


Looks rough.

“I have a 1953 jeep Willys CJ3B for sale. It’s not in the best shape, but I bought it off of a lady who let is sit for 27 years so that’s to be expected. My original plan was to restore is, but an opportunity has come up that I need some cash for. This is a very rare, one of a kind jeep. this jeep does have the hard top with it that is very rare. It also has the spare tire carrier that mounts to the side with the spare rim. All the rims are original with new tires mounted on them. I currently have the engine pulled for inspection. After opening it up I see that it is able to be rebuilt, but it will take some time and patience and most of it will need replaced. The engine has a little bit over 46,000 miles on it. The body needs some work also. It has no floors and the sides need to be patched in some places and completely replaced in others. I do have a new 4 x 8 foot sheet of 16 gauge thick steel that I will sell with it to make body panels out of. All the brake drums are freed up and it does roll and the steering works so you can move it easily. This jeep is a project, but if you have been looking for a jeep project, then its perfect. All the gauges are in it and in decent shape also. If you have any questions or are interested feel free to email me, thanks.”

Doesn’t include doors. Will need work.

“Meyers Half Cab rough condition, This top came with a lot of parts that I got with a basket case cj3b, They used a grinder to remove a lot of the screws so there are a lot of small cuts where they removed a screws, the entire thing is rusty, it does have the glass but will need a new seal. if you are looking for a new ready to go top this is not for you, it will need some simple welding to get it ready for install. the bottom edge will need some attention.

1956 CJ-5 Tub & Meyer Half Cab Nursery, TX $650


Given the half cab, there could be value here.

“selling body only (frame is NOT for sale). it has the hanging pedal upgrade with hydrolic clutch and vaccume booster brakes, extra fuel tank also has very well built rear swinging tire and jerrycan holder. downside is the floorboard/firewall was butchered for a V8, but it comes with a wheelbarrow to fix it. these half cabs are hard to find this far south, i have almost all of it, things missing is one door glass is broke (it’s flat glass, easy fix) and i am missing the body side hinges (not hard to duplicate, pipe and pin deal). email your number and I’ll call you back.”

2 CJ-5s Stateline, WI $2200


It includes a plow, too. The hardtop looks unusual It might be a halftop version of a “Keyes” hardtop, so called because the similar full version has a Keyes sticker on the back of it. You can view side and rear views of it on the CJ-3B page (See Derek’s description of Steve Dunkel’s jeep here). Anyone know more about these tops?

Tow-Loader Tractor Corp #1002

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: , , , .

Maury spotted this one-off CJ-5 backhoe tractor combo. He wrote, “I was helping my brother in law pick up some car parts this past weekend, and ran across this interesting CJ5-based vehicle.  It was made by the guy who owned the business that was selling the car parts, and he told me it was a one-off he created years ago in Michigan in the hope of successfully marketing it. 

The CJ5 body was bought new from AMC separately, and installed on the heavy steel  frame he created for it.  He said the resulting vehicle was the only loader-backhoe he knew of that could go 80 m.p.h.!”
