1948 CJ-2A Boerne, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3200.

You don’t see too many jeeps with Suicide doors.

“After about 12 years, way too much money and 1,000s of hours of sweat, I have completed a rebuild of this CJ2A.

Engine Components: new plugs, points & condenser, adjust timing, re-core radiator, rebuild starter, new flywheel, new coil, rebuild generator, new relay, completely rebuild the transmission (all new gears, synchronizers and bearings), all new wiring (front to back), new Solex replacement carburetor for the original Carter, new voltage regulator, plug wires, front lights, ignition switch, battery, horn.

Suspension: new springs and shocks. A steel plate for bed ( I put it under suspension because without the extra weight (250#), it beats you up), new A/T tires, new brakes and lines, Pitman arm, Tie rods.

Body (here is where it gets interesting): sanded and repainted original tub (there were 5 layers of paint to get off which included the original red that CJ2A’s came with).

I picked up a 1974 mailman’s carrier off of a ranch and fitted the top and windshield onto the CJ2A. This gave me an enclosed cab with a rear door and electric windshield wipers. Since the original doors slid on rails, I decided to hinge them and make them suicide doors. I had to custom build some latches. In response to some questions…YES, the top can be removed!

I added spot lights in the back so that I can have some light while closing gates. Put new padding and covers over seats. Painted the inside of the jeep. Remounted the spare tire carrier. I am sure I did some other things to it but I believe you get the gist of this project!”

    Hi Ron,

    This is an older ad. I doubt the builder of this jeep will see your comment. I suspect it took quite a bit of work to make the windshield work. This might actually have part of a CJ-5 body in the back. That’s why the top fits so well.

    Ancient ad, but this is the first time I’ve seen it.
    Great bodywork.
    A good use for unwanted postal Jeeps that used to be almost free…which I doubt they still are.

    They are no longer cheap. They were one of the last vintage jeep models to see prices rise.
