1948 CJ-2A “Lefty” Lubbock, TX **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $1500.

“I had plans to fix this 1948 Willys Jeep CJ2A for use during hunting season, but I never could find the time to work on it. It’s been off the road for a while, but I was told the original four-cylinder flathead engine has little time on an overhaul. It cranks freely with no suspicious noises.

There’s nothing wrong with the Jeep that can’t be fixed by any competent shade-tree mechanic. It needs some basic wiring repair to hook up the new ignition switch, and the brake system has gone dry. The bearing inside the steering column is stiff; I have it soaking in PB Blaster. The Jeep already has been converted to 12 volts, with an alternator, and the gas tank is good. The towbar has a new 2″ coupler.

I do not have a windshield, and the seats obviously need new pans and cushions. There’s a healthy aftermarket for these flat-fender Jeeps, and parts are not difficult to obtain.”
