Description

Lot #26.2 - Flat fender high hood Jeep. This is a rust-free original Arizona Jeep, purchased new by the state of Arizona for use by Salt River Project Power and Water. The Jeep still has the original windshield with the SRP decal still intact. It was purchased from SRP surplus by a retired employee in the mid 80's and has spent the last 25 years on his ranch in northern AZ, before being purchased and fully restored. Has original OHC 4-cylinder Willys Hurricane engine, 3-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel drive. Full frame-on cosmetic restoration was just completed including fully disassembling down to the bare tub, sandblasting and re-assembly. The Jeep was totally rust-free to start with, so there is very little filler and no patch panels. Engine was fully resealed and detailed to showroom condition. The complete suspension and braking system was rebuilt and upgraded to 11" brakes from a later CJ5. Brand new wiring harness, starter, generator and regulator have been installed and tested. This Jeep has painstakingly been re-outfitted with all the correct original details down to the canvas straps, jerry can and shovel and axe mounted on the tub. Vacuum operated windshield wipers were added and all new handmade lines run. Also, the original period correct Motorola two-way radio used by SRP is still installed. Five new Firestone OE spec tires were installed to finish off this authentic and rare CJ3B.
