Description:

1953 Willys CJ3B

CJ3B "High Hood" Willys Jeep CJ. This Jeep is titled as a 48 CJ2A but obviously it is not a 48'.
I have some GoPro video of this thing on the rocks and hills in Central Kentucky. It is fully functional and ready to wheel. It's licensed, all lights, blinkers, etc. work. The only thing not working are a couple of the gauges, including the gas gauge. I have replaced the shocks and the radiator with an aluminum unit and I have replaced the carburetor and added a rear bumper.
The frame on this jeep is incredibly clean and straight. I have owned three 80's vintage CJ's and none of them had a frame this nice. This jeep is perfect as it is, I would not change anything on it if I kept it. It has great patina. Seats in this thing are great, vinyl is like new. Note the passenger side has large rust hole, have passengers get a tetanus shot before riding. Body has rust. Rusted through in two spots, passenger side by footwell and driver's side floorboard has a hole too. Could be easily patched but why bother?
This jeep is ready to tackle any trail. I have done some hard wheeling in this and it never stopped. I will try to post a link to some video if I can get it edited.
Not pictured is a front brush guard and an original equipment frame mount trailer hitch and spare tire.
