Year? CJ-3A Colchester, VT $500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/28/2017) This has an APU hood, which was formerly for sale on its own, but now the jeep is for sale. The jeep itself doesn’t appear to be an APU jeep.

“Selling an early 50s CJ3a parts jeep. It is only good for parts. The springs, frame, and body are all junk. It has a F-head engine with a USAF APU hood. The engine is stuck. The transmission, t-case, and axles all look ok. It has a Fisher plow frame welded on the bumper and a plow pump on the engine. It has good 16″ wheels and lockout hubs. The Kelly hardtop could be saved, it is for a cj-2a I think. $500 firm, cash only in Colchester, VT. Bill of sale only. I can load it on your trailer.”

Has a few updates.

All this work was completed in 1999 with 43,000 on the odometer. It now has 51,413. I just don’t drive it enough to keep it. I haven’t driven it in months so the brake cylinders will need attention. Spare transmission and transfer case included at the asking price”

1949 CJ-3A Billings, MT $6000


Listed as a CJ-3A, it has a 2A windshield, so may actually be a 2A.

“For sale is a 1949 Willys CJ-3A (Jeep). The overall body of the vehicle is very solid with just a couple areas with minor surface rust. Would be an ideal vehicle to use for hunting, but can be used for just about anything. Vehicle still runs good and just needs some cleaning up. Please only serious inquires and questions pertaining to the vehicle. Also please no calls after 8pm. ”

CJ-3A Hardtop Weedville, PA $250


No pics provided.

“For sale is a vintage aluminum hard top and doors for a Jeep Willys CJ3A. Hard top and doors were painted camo by the previous owner. I got them with the Jeep, but decided to go with a soft top instead. So, I’m selling the hard top and doors. I hate to part with them because they are really hard to find, but I don’t think I have a use for them anymore. They will need some repairs, a new paint job, and the glass should probably be replaced, but everything is in relatively good condition. A good starting point for your project. I believe these were originally sold by Sears company back in the day. Not something you see every day”

1959 CJ-3B w/trailer Port Byron, IL $4500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, trailer • TAGS: .

Runs, but needs some work.

“Here’s a nice, 2 owner Willys barn find! 1959 Willys CJ3B. Looks to be original miles! Has had a minimal amount of body work done in it’s lifetime, and has obviously been repainted, but appears to be the original color. The tub and frame are in excellent condition. Starts and runs okay, but needs some TLC. The drive train is a little noisy too. Has the factory heater/defroster. Windshield is broken, as is the driver’s door window. Top easily removes with two people (looks much better without the top in my opinion). I have the old-school Illinois title, which was done in 1976 when the last owner bought it from the original purchaser. Includes late 50’s Bantam trailer, although there is not currently a hitch on the Jeep. Come make me an offer on the package!”

1962 CJ-6 Clifton, CO $4000


Could be a good price.

“This is a 1962 Jeep CJ6. It comes with the soft bikini top as well as the wooden top. The doors are wooden with sliding plexiglass windows. Yes the top is homemade. But it works really well. I have parked the Jeep at several fast food places when the wife and I stopped for lunch. People always walk over and check it out. They have even taken pictures. It still needs some work. But it is drivable the way it is. I sometimes take it to work just for fun. I have had it for four years. I just kind of lost interest in the project. I am asking for $4,000. I do not need to sell it. So don’t make any stupid offers. I will consider reasonable offers. I would also consider a trade for a 3/4 ton Chevy pickup. Something from the 70s. The tires are really nice. I put them on new 3 years ago. ”

1973 CJ-5 Waukesha, WI eBay


Looks like a Kelly hardtop. I love the “mother and daughter snow removal” on the door. Has some rust issues.

“This classic Jeep CJ spent much of its life used for plowing snow and stored in a barn. We believe it has had 2-3 owners and the miles appear to be original. Please check out the DOT codes on the tires. You will see that they are November of 1972. It includes the Western plow and controls, as well as the hard top and doors. It was stored in Southeast WI and is a fairly complete vehicle. It is in need of a complete restoration as you can see. Please scroll down and enjoy the 250+ photos.”
