“Very cool Willy’s Jeep all original drivetrain does not run. It looks like the cowl and windshield were grafted from a Willy’s wagon, and the steel cab is all one piece. Probably not a prototype vehicle or a relative to the CJ4, but a cool “missing link” CJ2a built with awesome craftsmanship 40+ years ago. Possibly a non-US made Jeep wagonette. Suicide doors latch. Great patina. This will be the coolest Jeep at Easter Jeep safari.”

This has a driver’s side mounted spare, so might be a lefty body, but the grille is early. It looks like it has a sears top, not a “homemade cab”.

“I believe it is an arctic top, maybe someone out there can educate me, It
came off my M38 . Glass for one side is badly cracked & there is no windshield glass, have an extra windshield frame that will go with it. (also with bad glass) Has one small tear (see picture) in back right corner of roof, previous owner
skimmed the whole top with some kind of metal filler that has failed and
cracked all over the place, it will all need to be removed (more than I want
to do).”

“1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B $3000 obo This Jeep is in pretty good shape and mostly original for its age. The Good: Mostly original, except for the Solex carb and screw on oil filter; these are both improvements unless you’re after a nut and bolt restoration, and it would be easy to go back to stock if you want. Steel hardtop. Starts easily and runs and drives well. Body is in good condition for the age. The Bad: Brakes are adequate but not excellent. Some rust, the worst of it is in the passenger floorboard. Wiring is sketchy at best. The Ugly: It’s a CJ-3B. Some people love them, most think they’re hideous. I like it, but I guess I’m in the minority. In any case, I have too many projects and I don’t think I’ll ever get to this one”

This CJ-6 has the King Seeley 0-8 speedo with the broken pointer (not uncommon to see them broken). I’m surprised to see that speedo in a model as late as 1958, so it wouldn’t surprise me if this was actually an early 1957 model sold as a 1958.
