This is a 1950 CJ3A, which I've just acquired. I first drove this Jeep in 1999, but the owner only just just decided to sell (they're going to be selling the ranch and consolidating on their much smaller island property).

A lot of it is original material (at least as far as I can tell). The most significant change has been to the steering--it's been upgraded to power steering using parts from numerous vehicles (the steering column and wheel are from a 70's vintage Camaro, I believe) and no longer resembles original Jeep equipment either above or below. I think the axles are stock. I'm pretty sure the tranny and transfer case are. (3 speed, no overdrive.) It did have locking front hubs added (not standard equipment on a CJ3A, according to the books I've read). The seats are not original (and there's a back seat), and a roll bar has been added. The engine is the old flat-head. I think it's actually a 1949 engine. The previous owners had been given the spare block when they bought it, and since the 1950 block had been rebored once before, when they rebuilt the engine, they decided to use the older block, which hadn't been. The instrument panel is not original--it has more gauges.

One old feature which I think is "neat" is the old starter (which has been rebuilt at least once, the last time c.2002), which still has the push button on the floor to engage the pinion. You could leave it sitting open with the keys in it, and there are very few people who could start it! The starter engage button is actually hidden under some secondary heater hoses than come out to a heater unit located between the front seats--this Jeep spent much of its life in Northern Alberta, and the extra heater was required!

Hey, that's a cool old rig. I've always wanted one, there's a neighbor up the road that has one sitting outside rotting in to the ground and he wont sell. It's been sitting for over 20 years. Anyway, click free for ya.

Nice Willys rig Paul, I hope you bring her back to life.

I had my sights on a 1947 Willys this past week. The guy told me it ran just fine and was asking $2495.00 I wanted to see it and drive it but by the time the seller actually returned any of my emails or my calls, he sold it Oh well, things happen for a reason I guess. Maybe the Jeep Gods want me to build a CJ8 crawler and not mess with the antiques.

Throttle Down Kustoms sells a hybrid CJ frame that will take a coil suspension like the TJ, so I'll go that route.

To be clear, it runs okay right now. Once I get the steering link and brakes resolved (see the "Master Cylinder" thread), it'll be just fine for puttering around my 20 acres, hauling firewood and tasks like that. Over time, I'll improve on that and I hope to get it street legal eventually. It'll probably need a tune-up, but I'm not going to think about it until the brakes and steering are done, and I get a good tank of gas in it--the stuff in there is a few months old...

No problem. How old is you're winch and does it still work?

I really like the look of CJs when it's one color mixed with black accents and black wheels AND no chrome. I also like when CJ owners mix in some YJ and TJ stuff. Nicely done.

I think its as old as the Jeep but I'm not sure. It runs off some type of gear on the side so it must be pretty old! It still works fine and it looks like it could pull out a tank!

1980tallcj7, are running anything besides the 4" lift and TJ flares to clear those 36"s? Right now i'm running 4" lift springs with 33s, but they rub on the back. I'm wanting to go up to 35s and am wondering if just doing the TJ flare will be enough. thanks

the reason the TJ flares are on it it to hide the body cutting that I did.
Also, the springs are YJ 5" from BDS, but they're soft and flexy and dont yield any more lift than the 4" CJ springs that were on there before. ....I suspect the fiberglass body maybe has an inch of lift built into it.

I think I could fit a 38.5 in there but the added weight is a showstopper the way it's built rt now.

Pinky? Did you airbrush the frogs on there? If so, nicely done!
