1950 JEEP Willys (CJ-3A)

1950 JEEP Willys (CJ-3A) for sale. This Jeep is an extremly capable trail rig that is always a rare find on the trails. Everyone has a monster Wrangler or a Tube Buggy, drive some vintage iron with some class. This Jeep is able to do some of the most dificult trails in Moab and still drive you back to camp or around town. It has a Buick 225 odd-fire mated to a T-98 transmission with a Dana-18 transfer case. It rides on top of some narrowed Dana-44 axles with a ARB locker up front and a Detroit Locker in the rear. The rear axle has a "full float" conversion with Chromoly Dutchmen Shafts. Cooling the 225 is a custom Griffin Radiator. It also has a new fuel tank, so their are not rust or hole issues associated with older CJ tanks. Also a new set of Maxxis 35x12.50R15 Bighorns with less than 500 miles on them (mostly trail). The power steering box has been tapped for Hydro-assist steering and has a frame brace installed as well. This old jeep rides on a set of "fiberflex" leaf springs which give it a good ride quality compared to stiffer arched springs as well as great flexibility off-road. The wiring has also been re-done to all the gauges, lights, switches, and battery so electrically this Jeep is sound.

Hard Facts:
Buick 225 odd-fire
T-98 transmission
Dana-18 transfer case (twin stick)
Dana 44 axles (front ARB, rear Detroit. Both 4.88 gears)
35x12.50R15 Maxxis Bighorns.

This Jeep has been featured in Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-road Magazine: www.4wheeloffroad.com/featuredvehicles/131_0804_1952_willys_m38/index.html
It is the same Jeep in the Magazine, just with a different tub on it, the MB tub went to a different project. The CJ-3A tub is a much more sound and straight tub than the Military one (although not as cool).

Now to the little things that need attention:
This Jeep does not have an E-brake assembly. The rear tailgate is off of a later CJ that is not factory. The undercarriage does have some rock rash as per this Jeep was built to be used, not taken to the Fair. The passenger side windshield motor is burnt out. And the Dana-18 seeps a little oil (what one doesn't?).

This Jeep is very sound for a Willys, It has been used, but not abused and will greatly be missed.

$4,800 obo
