1949 Willys CJ3A for Sale Iowa

Post by IowaJeepEnthusiast » Wed Oct 27, 2021 9:45 am

Have an ad on Facebook marketplace with many pics. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/it ... 2047164218
1949 Willys Jeep
Have owned since 2009 and has only seen limited, light use around our land pulling a chipper/shredder, hauling chain saws, etc. over level ground. We have started working on more rugged parts of our land and I cannot bring myself to risk damage to this Willys and, as attached as I am, just don’t have room to keep it along with a UTV.
I was fortunate to purchase a rebuilt 48 motor from Louis Larson of Minneapolis. In 2010 the jeep received the rebuilt engine, rebuilt carb, new clutch, key start replacing foot starter, and correct wheels and tires replacing the wide tires on white spoke wheels.
Recent work includes replacing grease zerks on suspension, a new (never used) Warn 8000 winch, rebuilt starter, radiator re-core, new gas tank, fuel filter, fuel pump, fresh oil change, tune up.
Has a 12 volt system. Has been garage kept and well cared for as long as I have owned.
Sale includes a box of parts from the engine swap including the original foot starter. Also have a new fuel line in the box and a correct spare rim and tire. Mileage unknown
Asking price is $11,500 or first reasonable cash offer.
Serious inquiries only please. Located in S.E. Iowa
John

By the way....I set the price based on some internet searches, my $ invested, time invested and my assessment of the condition of this 1949. I would appreciate any constructive comments as to a reasonable asking price for this Willys.

Although I have enjoyed owning this Willys, I confess that I have not been active in the "hobby". My knowledge of Willys differences is very limited and I have a good garage (The Scout Connection) that appreciates older vehicles and has performed the major servces. The titles says 1949 so I assumed CJ3A although I know that it has a 2A windshield. Also, I was not aware that there should be a tire mount and wonder if it might have had an aftermarket body kit installed at some point as I don't see any metal repair on the rear right corner. I will reprice with the hope that a real enthusiast purchases this Willys.

Have had some positive comments about this Willys; however, no in person viewings or actual offers other than inquiries about trades. Unfortunately, I am in need of $ and space so trades don't help with either priority. Will be trailering to an auction company on 11/16 if no positive action before then. Thanks for letting me use this forum to advertise. Also, I don't think that the rules allow me to post the auction link in this forum so contact me thru email if you wish to follow the auction and I will send you the link once I have it.
