1946 CJ-2A Bettendorf, Ia $1500


So is that thing attached to the hood?

“1946 Willys CJ2A. Runs and drives really good, has a 350 V8, Seats, and Steering column out of a 1969 Camaro. It also has the saginaw steering conversion so it’s nice and stable at highway speeds. It has a chevy 3 speed manual transmission and it is currently 2 wheel drive with a straight axle up front. Unlike most jeeps of the era, this one has a real tall rear gear so it’s more than capable of going 70 miles an hour (it’s only turning 2500 rpms at that speed!). It has new tires, radiator, distributor, battery, gas tank, plug wires, all new brakes (master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes, and brake lines). The frame has been fully boxed in so the jeep can handle all the extra power of the V8. The engine has an Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap intake manifold and an Edelbrock 600 CFM 4 barrel carb. Since its really light, it gets 18 mpg which isn’t bad for a carburated V8. It comes with a Tiger Top that’s in pretty good shape, with one small slit in the roof that shouldn’t be too hard to repair.

Now for the bad, the outside is really rusty. The wheel wells are the worst, and are pretty rotted. I’ve welded in new metal to patch the floorboards, and I then coated the floors with 3 coats of POR15 and 3 coats of Rhino-Liner to keep them from rusting again. The frame and underside are actually in great shape and pretty much rust free. This would be a great candidate for a rat rod, or you can buy a whole new steel or fiberglass body and make it look great! I’m moving into an apartment for my new job, so all the toys need to go. It comes with an extra hood and grill. I’m asking $1500, no trades. Call 563-650-1965 if interested!”

    It looks like an upside down cj2agas tank on the hood. At least it is orig equipment, just in the wrong place. There should be some kinda award for that idea……………..
