“I have decided to list my 46 CJ2A for sale. It is a recent restoration. I have driven the jeep less than 50 miles since finishing. All body work and paint was professionally done by a custom rod shop. Body is Pasture Green as it was in 1946. New items include:

NDT Tires
Brake System
Wiring Harness (6V system)
Exhaust System
Side steps
Fuel Tank
Seat covers and cushions

This CJ2A also has a keyed coil. Started and generator have been rebuilt. All lights and gauges work. Jeep starts, runs, drives, and stops as it should. Motor was completely overhauled and is a quiet, tight motor. Transmission was worked over and shifts well.  This is not a museum piece, but it is a solid rig.  Price is $13,000. Clean IN title in my name. Jeep is located in Haubstadt, IN 47639. I would consider some sort of trade deal for a stock 1945 CJ2A or another CJ2A that is in original condition and has some unique features/options.  Thank you for looking!”

“Complete frame off restoration on 1946 CJ2A. This is an early column shift. Jeep was taken down to bare metal for a complete nut and bolt restoration. Absolutely every bit of rust was removed. Engine, transmission, differentials, transfer case, brakes etc were all rebuild. New brake lines, new everything.

We used every non wear part and sourced original Willy’s/Jeep parts we could to keep it as original as possible. Correct pasture green color with hand painted wheel stripe just as it was when it came out of Willy’s. I have pictures of the restoration process. This auction includes hard to find rear PTO and Drum pulley implement. Soft top was hand made and includes original top bow set and doors with window surrounds. Your going to be hard pressed to find a finer example of an early 2A. Serious offers only this price is extremely fair and well under what was spent to restore.”

“Restored a few years ago, with only 23 miles put onto it since then. Yes, 23 miles.

-Body was removed and professionally painted
-Engine was professionally rebuilt. Full tear down and rebuild
-Has factory installed 3 point hydraulic hitch
-Comes with plow attachment
-New brake cylinders and new brakes
-Converted to 12volt
-Currently non-opted with $0 back DMV fees
-Comes with original owner’s manual
-New tires

After WW2, Willys started to produce vehicles that could be multi-purpose. They wanted to build a truck that could complete with a tractor on the farm, so there were a bunch of factory options you could order the truck with.
This one has a factory installed hydraulic lift on the back. This was so you could pull a plow ( which comes with the truck ) or any number of other accessories. It could be disconnected if desired though.

The Jeep also comes with the rear seats and tailgate which could be installed if the hydraulic hitch is removed. “
