Bob Boxley's Beauty:
Bob saw our CJ3A featured on and then contacted
us at the Jeepchasm to share photos and get resources for the restoration of
his 1951 CJ3A.

Bob's CJ3A was truly a "Diamond in the Rough."Bob states that the Jeep
once belonged to a coal mine in West Virginia and his father bought it from
them in 1955.

This Willys retained the majority of its' original, hard to find parts. Note the
original tail lights, all 3 seats with springs, hand operated passenger wiper,
lock-out hubs, and etc. It also has an early Ramsey winch!

Check out Bob's restoration on the CJ3A Page and take note of Jonathan
George's awesome handiwork!

Tim Bramblett's North Georgia 3A
This 3A may be a DJ3A.
It has 56337 series ID#
and the DJ3A / CJ3B
style dashboard. But, it
also has 4wd like a CJ3A.
Tim will do some more
research to see if it's a
DJ on a CJ chassis.
