“1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep for sale! restored to WWII military livery. Post-WWII, the simple yet iconic all-wheel drive GP, or General Purpose Vehicle, remained in production by Willys with the model designation CJ2A. This Willys has it all. Roll cage, electric wipers, new top, great tires/rims and more custom items. Very clean for a post war vehicle. This is a surviver to the fullest ready for the next adventure. There are some engine issues which are stated below. Hate to sell it but have many vehicles in my collection and this one is going to a new home. The Willys is located in Valley Center at my other mechanics house and he will be fielding all the inquiries and has all the knowledge to show it. He’s a great friend and master mechanic. Here are the details:
Body and undercarriage restoration, very clean. Replacement early 50’s willy’s engine. Lifted and new tires. Three speed. New interior and top, with optional bikini top and car cover. Seat belts and parking brake added.
Clean california registration.
Vintage 1946 plates, approved through CA DMV with 2024 tags. Odometer says 54,000 but there is many more miles on this 50’s motor. Has only 500 after it was all restored.

Here are the issues: The engine threw a rod and my mechanic James from James Automotive down in Barrio Logan inspected and here is his diagnosis.
It’s a F Head jeep engine from the early/mid ‘50’s.
Combines a flat head with an overhead valve.
The piston in the front cylinder basically disintegrated for some reason. Connecting rod as well. And badly damaged that cylinder.
To fix you need to take engine out. Disassemble it. Rebore the cylinder. Put a new sleeve in that cylinder. Replace the oil pump, which could have caused all of this. New gaskets and seals.
Then put it all back together and back into the Willys.”
