1946 Flattie Kirkland, Wa eBay


Some  unique customizations on this nice build.

This vehicle is titled as a “1946 Jeep”(which would technically be a CJ2a)  but has been built with a new Willys GPW steel tub as well as Ford running gear. Windshield is from a CJ3a. This was a custom build to replicate an over the top version of a GPW jeep. It was done professionally and is in incredible condition, mechanically as well as cosmetically.

Engine: Ford 302

Transmission: Ford D5

Transfer Case: Dana 18

Axles: Dana 44 front/rear

Edelbrock 1405 4 barrel carb

New Genuine Jeep Willys metal Tub, with fiberglass fenders.

Gorgeous Paint, soft top is in good codition, but leaks through two small gaps in front.  I don’t drive the vehicle in the rain so it never bothered me but the one time I got caught in a Seattle summer rain storm.

Lifted with 35″ Tires on Aluminum Wheels

Custom Bumpers front and rear

Frame is painted a nice Burgandy color. See pics.


The vehicle has heat. Two heaters, actually. One under each seat.

The vehicle has working turn signals. All gauges work.

Other goodies:

Optima Blue Top battery

Mallory ignition system

Mileage: About 8,000 miles since resoted. I drove the vehicle on a 250 road trip and it did great. Vehicle tracks straight down the freeway at 60 no problems.

Vehicle is 100% new or restored. Beautiful example of a restored Willys.

Note: I am a collector, not a mechanic. I have owned this vehicle and have had no problems with it what so ever. This vehicle is is terrific running condition. Everything works on the vehicle to the best of my knowledge.

Other: Vehicle has three paint flaws. See last three pictures below. They are VERY MINOR and are NOT on the body of the vehicle. The one on the interior windshild is not rusted, it looks like it in the picture, but it is not. The body paint is gorgeous and only has a couple chips on the door sill where your foot would hit getting in and out. Pictures speak a thousand words. Vehicle is being sold as-is, where-is. I will help arrange shipping on this side, but you’re responsible to get it to you and to pay for any shipping charges. There is no warranty on this vehicle express or implied.”

    Looks like a nice Jeep; however I’m curious about a couple of things. First; it looks like the tranny shifter is for an automatic. I’m no Ford guy so I don’t know what a D5 is. I’ve heard of C4’s and T5. Anyway, if it’s an automatic why is there a clutch pedal? The shifter is visible in the reflection off the dash and windshield frame. I don’t see shifters for the trans case but they must be there. Secondly, what holds the windshield up ,as I can’t see the top part of the bracket?
