“For sale is a 1947 CJ-2A Willys Jeep.

Sold as is, as a project, not running. Rolling and only somewhat complete.
Nothing left of the original drivetrain. (okay, it does have a Spicer 18 xfer) Body and frame are original.

Hasn’t run with this engine. Been outside, somewhat covered for 15 years.
CA title (lost), but the title is currently being replaced by the state of CA, hasn’t been registered in 25 years

Solid but Bondo in few places, dings and dents (it’s 73 years old)
The bed has been replaced by a ¼” steel plate, welded in place, not flat
Glove box under passenger seat has been removed but will be included in the sale
Seat brackets have been changed
Original style (but newer) gas tank under driver’s seat
2A has fold-up (out) windshield
Some rust on lower edge of tailgate
Left fender pushed out to fit previous headers from Buick V6
Small hole, crudely, cut in firewall, to clear valve cover of Buick V6
Grill modified to fit larger aluminum radiator

Engine – Chevrolet 4.3 V6
The engine has been fit to the engine compartment. Motor mounts in place. Radiator (new aluminum Ron Davis, 4-core, never used) in place with new mounts/front cross member.
Trans – SM420 (4-spd with a granny 1st gear)
Tower has been off but transmission has been covered
Xfer – Dana 18

The rear is currently a Dana 44 from a 1948 CJ-3A. The front is a newer Dana 44 (flat top knuckles). It has been narrowed 4.75 inches, professionally. Also changed to 5on5.5. I have the matching rear Dana 44 (not yet narrowed). It is an offset diff with a six-bolt lug pattern. Can’t remember what they were from, maybe a Wagoneer?

GM steering box relocated to in front of the grill, behind bumper

White wagon wheels, 15×8. Very old 31-inch tires, good for rollers only

-Current spring over with narrow 1.75” wide springs.
(Rancho 1” lift, for CJ-2A)
-Might negotiate in other springs I have laying around.
-I have two sets of 5.89 gears for Dana 44 axles.
-Extra clutch assembly
-have a top, new in a box for 30 years
-Original horn (6v horn sounds great with 12v to it!)
-Dana 44 spool
-receiver hitch (Ford) for new rear cross member
-tow bar and mounting points for front bumper

I have a Warn overdrive unit that I will sell with the Jeep. It has not been mounted on this vehicle.

I have no interest in parting this out; I’d actually rather throw more parts in with it.”
