For Sale: 1951 Willys Jeep in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1951 Willys Jeep C3A has been given a few of the right investments to keep it looking fresh. But nothing in the presentation will ever take away the feeling that this 4x4 is at the bedrock of freedom.

The CJ3A was a very close sibling to the Jeeps that were a WWII soldier's best friend. This was the Willys Jeep used for peacetime duty (CJ = Civilian Jeep), but you can easily see its armed forces origins on this example. Thinly veiled with proper headlights and a tailgate, it's the same basic style that brought victory in World War II. An icon like this doesn't need a makeover, but there have been some nice investments we can appreciate. For example, the full body is finished in a basic gray. You can see this as a primer for whatever personal color you want to make it, but right now it also serves a second purpose. The light color really showcases the quality of the body, right through the wheel wells. There's also a side-mounted full-size spare with a fresh tire.

The CJ3A was a bit more accommodating than its predecessors. The largest change you'll notice was a smaller rear wheel. It may not seem like much, but you'll really feel the difference with a seat that sits further back to accommodate real-sized adults. This one also has useful features like rugged rubber floor mats, seatbelts, and a roll bar. The full gauge package is clear and easy to read. You'll note three levers on the floor, one for the three-speed manual transmission and the other two for the two-speed transfer case. The middle one selects 2 or 4-wheel drive, while the one on the far right selects high and low ranges. If that seems confusing, the instructions are always mounted on the dash to make sure this 4x4 is always ready for duty (pretty cool, right?)

These weren't about all-out power, but the 134 cubic-inch inline-four was actually a big reason why the military chose Willys for manufacturing the wartime Jeep. The Go Devil motor provided good torque and was as reliable as an American soldier. It has the bold red looking within the light gray walls, and the way it fires up and runs like the heart of a hero. Plus, upgraded tires and the control of the three-speed manual transmission helps this 4x4 retain its go-anywhere attitude.

This has the iconic looks with just the right updates you want. Don't miss this classic Jeep. Call today!!!
