1947 CJ-2A Redding, Ca $15000

UPDATE:  The price has dropped to $15000

This is a beautiful build, but the price will scare a lot of buyers away.   A tilt front flattie is certainly rare enough to warrant posting.

    As I have just located my jeep on this web-site, I was surprised to see such a comment. As there are many other jeeps with the same build quality or less priced in the middle to high teens, and even into the twenty’s.

    Price is usually negotiable. Our research puts this jeep in the price range of other jeeps of similar quality.

    Comments such as the one given usually mean that research in the given area has not been done.

    Hi Craig,

    Thanks for the thoughtful response. One of the reason’s why I’ve taken away the ability to post anonymously is because I prefer an argument along with an opinion.

    My intent with this site is to inform rather than simply take swipes at people’s projects. Heck, I can take swipes at my own jeep and I’m not finished yet!

    That said, I think the problem you will face selling your jeep for the price you ask is that you have some great upgrades that aren’t matched by the necessary, suspension, front and rear end upgrades.

    For example, generally the people looking for model’s 23 front & 41 rear in their drive train are looking for the rest of it to be stock as well. On the other hand, people who are looking for more of a custom jeep in the price range you have placed your jeep are looking for, at the very least, a model 25 (though preferably a dana 30 or 44) in front and a 44 in the rear, along with posi or lockers of some type. They are also likely looking for a cage or, at the very least, a roll bar.

    I can also tell you that the market has been flooded over the past year, which has driven down the prices of jeeps as compared with 2 years ago.

    I wish you the best of luck in your efforts and contact me if I can help you out in anyway.

    – Dave
