1947 CJ-2A Portland, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500.

(11/19/2018) Looks in good shape. It lacks the front frame gussets for some reason.

“This Jeep was completely rebuilt 10 years ago with a frame off restoration. Rebuilt original 4 cyl motor and transmission, new tub, new wiring, new Firestone military NDT tires, many new or reconditioned parts. My goal was to return it to as near new condition as possible, and it’s been continuously garaged and driven just 1100 miles since the restoration. This is as close as you will get to owning a new, 1947 Willys CJ 2A and is nothing but fun to drive. I’d like to see it go to a good home”

    I’ve read somewhere that Willys moved to using some frames without the gussets, similar to CJ3A frames, sometime in late ’47, but can’t put my finger (or mouse pointer) on that article.

    The Jeep may have been a Friday build and the gussets were not put on. We could usually tell a Jeep Vehicle that was a Friday build. A lot of fasteners wouldn’t be tight and we usually found one or two hand full of fasteners in the glove compartment. When we got a new vehicle in, we would go through it and tighten fasteners. Jeep’s body build quality control was not always the best. However, they were good about honoring warrantees.

    The Friday build expands to Mondays too. The excuse went to when the workers had the weekends off, they really didn’t work their best on Friday as they were tired and looking to the weekend or when they went back to work on Monday they weren’t into the work yet. The old saying was if the car was a “lemon”, “It must have been built on a Friday or Monday”

    I’m surprised that went so quickly this time. It’s been at $7500 for a few weeks or longer.
    Thanks for the update. I’ve updated the post.
