This was the last of the "low-hood" flat-fendered CJs. Only a few changes, mostly visual, marked the CJ-3A from the 2A. The windshield is a one-piece design and has a vent just below it. In its four-year run, 131,843 CJ-3As were manufactured. The 3A got an axle upgrade from a Spicer 41-2 to a Spicer 44-2. A stripped "Farm Jeep" option was available for 1951-53 models; these featured a standard drawbar and PTO. In 1953, the CJ-3A was built alongside the "high-hood", F-head powered CJ-3B. This extremely original 1950 CJ-3A belongs to Colin Hutto of Cedaredge, Colorado. (Jim Allen)
