1947 CJ-2A Portland, OR $9000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Looks in good shape.

“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.”

1948 CJ-2A Lefty? Kerhonkson, NY $4250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Not quite “unmolested”, but pretty close. It appears to be a “Lefty”. The top is interesting. Whether custom or dealer offered I couldn’t say.

“A True Survivor and Garage Find. Everything is original and unmolested. From the estate of my father, Gordon Churchwell, he purchased it new and registered until the mid 80’s. Afterwards it was used around the farm for recreational use. In addition, there are several photos showing a rare back seat, fog lamps, a mesh grill, a tow bar, original heater, the original canvas doors, spare tire, and other misc parts. The top he made from marine plywood and fiberglass coated as he spent his years in retirement restoring antique wooden boats. It can be easily removed. It isn’t currently running and will need restorative work. All items pictured is included in the sale. Pick up only and transport is responsibility of buyer..”

Ted spotted this one on Barn Finds. The starting price on this is $13k. It’s supposed to have only 7900 miles. View all the information on eBay

“True barn find survivor recently pulled from back of dry metal shed after a long 10+ year storage. Main pic is where it sat, then pics after pulled.. Always in Texas was always just a hunting vehicle, rarely if ever used on the street. Runs and drives although does have an exhaust leak and heater core is bypassed and needs to be replaced. Two of the heat control cables are broken. Small dent in lower right rear quarter. Very solid, original driveline, runs drives, shifts and stops, stays cools, good oil pressure, doesn’t smoke, lights work, glass excellent, paint all original in useable shape, tires new, has original spare, clear title in my name.

Year? M-38A1 Eclectic, AL $2000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

There is some value here given the Meyer hardtop, but not clear how much. The frame doesn’t have the correct grille mounts, so I’m wondering if the frame is original to the body.

“Pre 59 willys m38a1. Im assuming this is military or dod use jeep as it has the place for a shovel under the hood a 4in fuel filler and the compartment on the cowl section does open. What i do know is it has the dana 18 twin stick tcase which is worth a good bit by itself. Also has a t90 3speed, dana 25 front axel with dana 44 rear. Also has a hurricane f head engine that turns over by hand. Lots of new parts inside the truck. Engine and tcase were built in 77. I dont see this taking alot to be running and going again. Located in eclectic price is negotiable in person.”
