1955 CJ-3B West Valley, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $300.

This should not last long. The Koenig half cab along is probably worth $300.

“53 CJ3B Jeep halfcab, switched to 12v charging. body is rough but runs good. has been used for plowing the last 12 years”

1956 CJ-6 Carmel, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $950.

Craig shared this one. If the Kelly half cab is rust free, this could be a good price.

“Selling a project 1956 jeep cj 6, 4 cylinder, 3 speed trans,
body is very rough, frame is good, needs fuel pump, but does run.
I bought it to fix up but just have the time.
It is a very unique truck and this is the first year of production.”

(04/01/2018) Grille is incorrect for a 1946. Appears to have a Sears half cab.

The top also has a wooden bracket that goes across with a bracket for a light. Could be modified for other Jeep sizes and years. Metal does have flaking paint and needs work to restore”

1953 CJ-3A Whitehall, MT $1650


Includes an extra engine. I believe that’s a Kelly hardtop.


“1953 Willy CJ3 Jeep runs good has a rebuilt radiator, good tires, has a spare engine that was given to a school by the National Guard and was used for students to tear down and put together. It was disassembled by a mechanic and found it has no problems and was put back together—it’s basically a new engine that has never been run, has a tow bar, the Jeep will need brakes and some tender loving care but would be a good project”

1946 CJ-2A Staunton, IL $13,850

1948 CJ-2L? Spokane, WA $1000


More evidence that suggests the rumor of a Spokane Jeep dealer extending CJ-2As into “CJ-2Ls” was true. Thanks to Jay for spotting it. The hardtop has a Cab Enclosure data plate, suggesting that this top is a modified (hacked) version of that top.


“1948 Willys CJ-2A Jeep complete. This jeep is perfect for a full restoration project. Engine turns over freely, but does not start. Needs brakes. It has a hard top taken from a 1/4 ton truck welded to the body. Surface rust and some sheet metal rust out (see photos).

Started restoration, but stopped due to injury and now moving. Have all the parts removed plus new 50 Amp 12 volt alternator.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/26/2017) A factory bed conversion for a CJ-5? Anyone ever run across that? It’s listed as a 1952, but it has CJ-5 grille and body at the very least. Looks like a ventilating windshield, too (thanks Dave).

UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/22/2018) Ted’s got this trencher for sale.

“For sale late sixties CJ5 Auburn Jeep A Trench 1968? Would make a great yard truck/ Plow Jeep,comes with dirt plow and snow plow. Starts, runs good and drives , clutch feels good , no brakes .

Not very familiar with these units so will try my best to answer any questions. Looks complete enough to restore or get going and use as is, or would be a great parts donor for another Auburn Trencher unit. Front counter weight there ,as is the creeper gear , pto assembly, Fhead motor, overload springs ( Canfields or Koenigs ?) etc Too many Jeeps to work on this one needs a new home $2800 Feel free to call,text, or email for details , I will try my best to answer all questions.

1954 CJ-3B Ridgeway, VA $1000


Craig shared this one. To me, the half top may be an early Worman (or Willys Overland branded Worman top). Here’s an example of the the W-O early Worman top: http://www.ewillys.com/wp-content/uploads2/2016/10/1947-worman-non-branded-halfcab2-lores.jpg

“Jeep CJ-3B project, engine and transmission out, same with steering. No tailgate, no title. I bought it a over a year ago thinking I would build it and I’m no longer interested. Comes with aluminum half-top, will not part out. What you see if what you get. Had a PTO on it. It was a trench-a-jeep.”

1954 CJ-3B Amador County, CA $5900


UPDATE: Still Available. Now on eBay.

(12/07/2017) The body looks a little rough.

“Unmolested Survivor.
All Original with aftermarket cab that is as old as the jeep.
Would be a small job to restore. Just needs paint really but I like the current patina even better so I won’t paint it if I keep it.
Set up by a previous owner as a pig hunting jeep. Has gun racks, handle bar for rider in back etc.
Tow bar works very well at freeway speeds. Starts quicker than my modern cars. Original 6 volt wiring. Running an 8 v battery which is one of the reasons it starts so easy. Original heater works great. Drives nice around town and legal for the freeway but it is slow. The dash info plate shows it will go 60 in 3rd gear high range ( and it will ) but it likes 50 mph a lot better. E brake not hooked up but I have it. Both fuel gauges read 1/2 when the tanks are full which I’m told can be fixed by adjusting the voltage. Everything else works. Locking front hubs, new military tires. It will practically climb a tree in low range 4×4. Gets tons of looks. Current reg, clean title in my name. Really fun jeep. I’m not hot to sell her but I have too many toys and my daughter is getting married so its time to let someone else have some fun. $5,900 obo CASH only – local pick up only.”

CJ-2A & CJ-3B Aguilar, CO $2500


The seller indicates there are 2 CJ-2As for sale, but the pics only show one CJ-2A, though a CJ-3B sits in the background. The other “CJ-2A” is described as having an Fhead, so I suspect the 3B in the background is the other jeep for sale.

“2 – CJ2A Willys Jeeps;
One with factory winch and PTO. L head engine; starts and runs good, brakes – lots of rust!!
Second CJ2A complete with F Head engine, but motor stuck; better condition.
$2,500 for both or $1,500 for running machine.”
