1986 Mitsubishi J53 Leavenworth, KS $12,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

JW is selling his J53, because he bought an M-38 (which he found on eWillys).

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1514651112274242/

“This 1986 J53 diesel Jeep is in great shape and it runs fantastic. Truly a rare Jeep, there are not many like it in the United States. It has more power than a flat fender but still has classic Willys style. If you own this you’ll have the most unique Jeep in the group. Original 30443 Km on the odometer, which is 18,916 miles. Clear title in my name. Why buy a side by side ATV or a UTV when you can have a street legal turbo-diesel Jeep!”

“Recently imported from Japan. After Jeep was done producing the Willys they sold the rights off to Mitsubishi to be produced for many years after. So this is essentially a Willys Jeep. Diesel engine, 4×4 , fires right up and drives fine. 4 speed manual on the tree ( right hand drive). Comes with an extra set of larger tires. Just don’t have the time for this project at the moment. I have the Japanese title in hand and all the paperwork to transfer. Will need an inspection to get an Az title”

No issues, drive it frequently around Blue Ridge. Stored under cover (car cover included). Will provide contact info for a local mechanic who knows old Jeeps, so no worries about maintenance.

“Mitsubishi J3 Diesel RHD Military Jeep.

License built by Mitsubishi. 4 Cylinder diesel from the factory. Built for the Japanese army (and others) from the 1950’s until the late 1990’s.

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it……. Very cool and unique Jeep.”
