1942 Flattie Ashford, WA $800


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

Still Available. Was up for sale back in 2012. Looks like it was being built as a racer.

“On shortened up scout 2 chassis
dana 44 front and rear
cad tilt tele column
RCI fuel cell
scout 345 engine, no trans, but I have a T19 wide ratio avail separately (yes the hard to find super granny low with a dana 20 tc attached)
roll cage with seats mounted to cage
33 inch wild country on alloy rims.

Lots of work has already been done, but I just don’t have time to work on it. This would make a great winter project for spring wheeling. This is not a driver, but is a roller to put onto a trailer. Need a car trailer also? I have an extra for sale for 1500 super heavy duty with new tires.

1949 CJ-3A Colorado Springs, CO **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $7500.

(11/08/2014) Looks like a fun rig.

1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co21 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co22 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co3 1949-cj3a-coloradosprings-co4

“The previous owner told me this rig was custom built in the late 1960’s as a no-kidding Sand Dune racer.

It’s incredibly fast! It will hold 65 MPH up Vail Pass on I-70 while barely touching the gas. The v8 motor is very strong, but when you combine it with such a small / light vehicle, it’s just crazy. The motor fires right up and is very strong, doesn’t burn any oil.

I believe it is a reproduction CJ3A steel body and not original Willys. I do have a clear Colorado title in my name. The bottom of the “tophat” channels underneath the tub are rusted, but the actual tub pan itself is very clean, and the frame is clean and solid.

The paint job is probably 20 years old, so is faded but still looks okay. I can’t stop for gas or pull up to a stoplight without someone drooling over it or asking questions.
