1954 Willys Jeep CJ-3B and Ice Speedster


$41,250 USD | Sold

United States | Auburn, Indiana




In 1953 Willys dramatically updated the CJ Jeep line, it varied significantly from its military predecessor, the Wills MB. The new CJ-3B featured a higher hood that would house the taller Hurricane F-head engine. The CJ-3B Jeep would make a fifteen-year production run and over that span of time over 155,000 units were sold.

Offered here is a 1954 Willys Jeep CJ-3B that has been beautifully restored with a stainless steel body. This iconic Jeep is tailored with a 134-cid inline four-cylinder married to a three-speed manual gearbox. As one would expect from a Jeep, it is equipped with four-wheel drive with high and low gears, factory overdrive, and black convertible top.

Included with the Jeep is a unique, rarely seen 1958 Snow Speedster. This Speedster was built for a hotel on Lake Houghton in Michigan. It is powered by a continental airplane engine and features a Ford steering unit. The Speedster is said to be in its original condition.
