Description

For sale is my CJ3B Willys flat fender Jeep that is stretched to CJ6 length. Below is the info.
Specs:
• Body, title, VIN, VIN plate, and original black California plates are from a 1960 Willys CJ3B. Clear title and current registration, both in my name. Tub is stretched behind the door openings; seats 4 adults. It sits on an early CJ6 frame. The wheel base is about 104". Plenty of leg room & head room all around.
• Engine: Buick V6 225 odd-fire, about 8,000 miles on it since rebuild by previous owner; new battery, aluminum 2 core radiator, electric fan, heavy flywheel, known for allowing low rpms and good crawling,
• Transmission: Ford truck T-18, w/ 6.32: 1 low granny gear, 4 speed manual
• Transfer case: Scout Model 20 twin stick with a 3:1 Tera low kit
• Front axle: International Scout 2 Dana 44, Chevy truck disc brakes, ARB locker, high steer steering/HD tie rod, 5.38 gear ratio, manual locking Warn hubs
• Rear axle: International Scout 2 Dana 44, Ford Explorer disc brakes with Lokar e-brake, Detroit hard locker, 5.38 gear ratio
• Tires: Five 34"x10.5"x15" Super Swamper TSL on 5 star chrome/steel wheels. Plenty of tread. Miscellaneous nicks and scuffs from wheeling in the rocks.
• Suspension: 4" Superlift soft ride leaf springs, Edelbrock Extreme Travel remote reservoir shocks; flexes very well and keeps the rubber on the ground.
• Seats: Front are grey Mastercraft high backs with rain covers and 5 point harness; rear bench seat is a grey Racetrim, 42" wide with removable headrests and two 5 point harnesses.
• Roll Cage: 1.75" diameter full family cage, bolted to the tub; has a nice snap on shade cover
• Windshield is a vented windshield from a 1942 Willys MB or GPW. You can open up just the glass for a little breeze, fold it down, or easily remove it entirely by unscrewing the two wing nuts
• Winch: Old school Warn 6000 sidewinder winch with synthetic line. Don't let the 6k rating fool you. This winch gets it done. It has righted flopped Jeeps and pulled buried vehicles out of sand. It has a fast line speed.
• CB: Basic Midland 40 channel CB radio; drive-in speaker for external speaker; PA speaker under the hood; quick release antenna.
• On-board air: York compressor under the hood with a 2 gallon ViAir tank; plumbed to front and rear.
• Miscellaneous: Power steering, manual brakes (dual master cylinder), 12 gallon CJ5 steel gas tank with a heavy duty skid plate; swing out tire carrier, no top other than the snap on shade cloth, rear bumper has a receiver hitch; quick release removable steering wheel; thumb throttle which has helped me out of a jam many times; the lights work; the gauges work except for the cheapo tachometer isn't wired, 2 gallon Rotopax gas can
Stuff to know about this Jeep.
It is being sold AS IS. This Jeep is my primary trail rig and thus the body, suspension and tires have the miscellaneous rock rash that you'd expect from a rig that actually crawls through rocks and over boulders, but I don't abuse it. The 4WD all works. The crawl ratio is really low, about 100:1; great for the trails, but not so great for the street. It's not suitable for highway driving. The 5.38 gears keep it from hitting highway speeds without winding out. The good news is you could easily fit bigger tires under the trimmed rear wheel wells and flat front fenders and that would lower your street rpms some. Still -- it's a trail rig and it rides like one. If you need a vehicle to hop on the highway and take you to work every day, or even to the trail -- this isn't the one.
Car hauler trailer: I have a 16' dual axle 7,000 lb trailer I use for taking this Jeep to the trails. I can sell it with the Jeep if someone wants it, but I won't sell the trailer before I sell the Jeep. This trailer has flipped leaf springs for better clearance in the dirt and out my driveway; electric brakes, 82" wide wood deck and upgraded to 15" wheels with Load Range E trailer tires, spare tire, heavy duty ramps, lockable ramp storage, winch, lockable storage boxes. If you want to buy this with the Jeep, it will be cheaper than what I'd sell it for separately, just for less hassle. Check it out when you look at the Jeep. This trailer is $3500 new at Ronco Trailers without the spare tire or storage.
Parts is Parts
I've accumulated a fair amount of Willys/Jeep parts and I will throw them in with the deal.
• Full set of front and rear spare Scout 2 axle shafts (no housings, just the shafts).
• Set of 4 steel wheels that exactly match the five wheels on the Willys. These could be ready to go matching spares if you damage one or use them on your matching off road trailer.
• Extra CJ3B hood; rusty, but pretty straight. Other small odds & ends.
I reserve the right to end the auction early as vehicle is for sale locally with with possible trades as listed in the local ad.
