1956 CJ-3B Charlotte, NC **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500.

The windshield looks a little unusual on this CJ-3B.  It appears to be well maintained.

1959 FC-170 Firetruck Sarasota, Fl eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , .

I've got a friend in California that has an old firetruck he would drive to work every so often.  I always thought that would be fun, but I think this firetruck would be even cooler.

"1959 Willys Jeep FC170 Forward Control fire truck. Runs good – may need some brake maintenance. 7,200 actual miles. Manual Transmission. ALL ORIGINAL!  This vehicle has not been stripped. It is 100% original – even the windshield wipers! Includes Fire Extinguishers and fire blanket canister (with original fire blanket inside). Even the lights and siren are working! The headliner is begining to come down and the interior needs some work. There are no dents on the exterior.The vehicle has only been driven in local parades for the past several years."

1962 Wagon Medford, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:   **SOLD** Was $17,000

“2 Door Wagon, 6 Cylinder 230 Tornado, Power Brakes, Power Steering,4 Wheel Drive,Trailer Hitch, Winch

It’s 1962, open the passenger door, a 60/40 split! The 40 jumps completely out of the way, making it easy to load into the rear bench seats of this classic 2 door model. Whats this? Another 60/40 split, need something out of the back? No problem, just go get it! And oh by the way, there’s more leg room in the back seat of this vehicle then any modern SUV. Flip the rear seats forward, open it’s real “Tail Gate” and it’s just begging for 4 Longboards and some sleeping bags. In 1962 the Wagon was powered by a brand new 6 cylinder 230ci Tornado. A very unique engine, intended to be reliable and deliver plenty of low end torque. Some would say it was the perfect engine for a Jeep!”

1947 CJ-2A Sunnyside, Wa $3500


This seems like a reasonable price for an updated, trail ready jeep.  The windshield looks like it’s a CJ-3A windshield, but it is flat.  I wonder if there was some custom work done on it.

“1947 Jeep Willy’s with Chevy V6 engine. 4 speed manual transmission, power steering, tilt column, racing seats with 6 point harness and soft top. Has ultra aluminum wheels, 35″ Super Swampers and comes with 4 extra wheels. Includes tow bar.”

The term ‘rare’ accompanies a variety of FC-150/170s.

1963 DJ-3A Surrey — Saint Petersburg, Florida eBay


On first glance this looks almost brand new.  But, on a closer look I realized someone couldn’t resist modifying it by changing the windshield.  At first, I thought the windshield was raised and attached to an added bracket; however, after looking at more pictures,  I’d say someone tried to make a CJ-3B windshield fit on it. On such a rare and good looking jeep, I can only wonder why??

“This ultra rare 5000-mile documented original 1963 Willys spent the majority of it`s life on a golf course in Florida. It is believed to be one of the few Surrey Gala models. At some point in it’s life it has had a color change and top upgrade. For the last 15 years it has been part of a private collection. It has never been offered for sale before. It is in excellent mechanical condition and presents beautifully.”

1947 CJ-2A Eatonville, Wa $15000


The package looks good but I doubt the price will hold.  Neither the body nor the windshield is CJ-2A, so there’s some mixed and matched parts.

1948 CJ-3A Randy Lawson’s Build

• CATEGORIES: Builds • TAGS: , , .

This article about Randy Lawson’s build appeared in the 1994 Off-Road Magazine.  It took Randy 15 years to redo his CJ-3A.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a before picture.  Some of the details not mentioned in the short article on this page include the following:

  • Randy has added a second little window below the wipers on the windshield.  I assume this is custom as I’ve never seen it before.
  • Randy changed the look of the cowl on the engine side by placing a chromed or polished plate across it.  It makes it look very clean.
  • It appears Randy padded the dash (you can see this here and here ).
  • The Jeep may be registered as a CJ-3A, but the cutouts on the passenger side suggest an M38.

1964 CJ-3B Indio, Ca


Was listed at $10,000

I like the day-glo color and the safari window.  Though slightly impractical, the dash is installed nicely.  Plenty of details to like about this jeep.  This may be a bit much to pay for a drive train without much updated (perhaps it’s rebuilt?).

“This 1964 Kaiser 3B is a “High Hood” with a very clean Chevy 350. We have updated the dash with new gauges and wire. It is still four wheel drive with little mods to gearing. This jeep has always been garaged and well maintained. The windshield it very rare due the the “Safari” style windows. We have a set of rear paddle tires (Sand Tires Unlimited) with rims. Still have the original soft top and soft doors.”

When we got it, it had wasn’t much to look at, was missing a windshield but ran and drove so well we had to have it. It is heavily modified to be a safe, comfortable, go anywhere ride. We call it The Rhino Hunter as it has effortlessly shamed a few ORVs in the mud and rocks…”

1948 CJ-2A San Diego, Ca $4500 obo


I find this jeep slightly puzzling. I love the nice detail and old school upgrades — the full roll cage, the extra large windshield, a good front bumper mod, the nice paint job, updated seats — yet it still sports an F-head?  This jeep looks like it should go fast, but can’t.
