1953 CJ-3B Doddridge, Ar eBay


This is a good looking CJ-3B with unusual striping.

“You are bidding on a beautiful original 1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B.  Black plate California jeep.  This jeep runs very good with no oil consumption or leaks.  The only rust is on the front fender where it meets the grill and the tailgat has a crack where the spare tire carrier used to be as seen in the pictures.  It has a new clutch and pressure plate installed last year.  The top is almost new with one small tear in the passenger door  that happened when it was hauled to Arkansas from California in 2009.  It also has a canopy top in good shape for those warm summer days.  All 3 seats show some wear but have no rips or tears.  The speedometer does not work the needle is broken off in the gauge.  It has chrome rims and good street tires.  The engine, transmission, twin stick transfer case and third members are all in good shape with easy shifting and no strange noises.  New brakes were installed in 2009.  The jeep comes with a tow bar for towing behind your motorhome.  I have owned this jeep for over 10 years and bought it from a friend who used it on his horse ranch.  This is a great jeep, a lot of fun and I would not  hesitate  to drive it anywhere.  Good  luck bidding and enjoy this historical masterpiece.  THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION.  Any questions just  e-mail me. This is sold AS IS with no warranty.”

Builds: Trevor’s Old School CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Builds • TAGS: .

I gotta say I like this jeep.  There’s enough old school stuff to make me smile.  Check out the battery, the roll cage, the art on the back, the dashboard, the gauges, the gas pedal … I could go on.

The owner of this jeep is 16 year old Trevor, who inherited it from his father.  Trevor’s going to make some updates to this jeep, such as adding power steering.  He asked for some advice regarding steering so naturally I asked for pictures.

Trevor wrote, “thanks so much for your time and advice! it really means a lot to me cause i wanna get this thing out on the trails like my dad did back in day.”

1945? CJ-2A Libby, MT *SOLD**


1945_cj2a_libbyUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“One 1945 Willys Jeep Cj-2A up for sale. I bought this jeep for my father, but his location no longer allows for this type of vehicle.  The jeep is in need of restoration, but is nearly ready to drive. The jeep has a brand new set of tires.  The stickers haven’t even worn off of them.  They have approximately 30 yards of mileage on them. There is also a new starter installed. The engine turns over, and spark is good.  It is not running due to a probable timing issue.  It backfires, but doesn’t start yet. This jeep is in need of a new wiring harness, along with various and sundry repairs.  The frame is good, the drive system appears to be in running order, although with some use it will probably need some seals and gaskets to be replaced. The tub has quite a bit of rust, as is normal with a 1940’s jeep.  The tailgate and windshield frame fold (no glass in the windshield though), and the attached towbar is usable….”
