“I have a 1948 CJ2A with rear PTO. It’s all restored to original. The restoration was done roughly 15 years ago but looks like it was done less than that. This was all done recently as it sat for so long: New fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, condenser, oil lines, fuel pump to carb line, carb was completely rebuilt, new master cylinder, bell and crank for the steering. I’m sure I’m missing a few things. Have new wheel cylinders but haven’t installed them. Comes with tire chains, a bucket of carbs (3-4) a crate of other parts and a hard cab that needs to be finished. Runs and drives. $18,500. Open to trades”

2 CJ-2As Lena, IL $50,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

Bill shared this Hemming’s ad for 2 CJ-2As, one with the Kubota swap. This combo is listed on Hemmings. Given the red jeep isn’t quite stock (front bumper has extra metal, it’s missing the front bow holder, there appear to be no tail lights, and the front parking lights are incorrect) and the black jeep is even less so (has even more mods), though has a new  Diesel engine, the price seems a little aggressive.

https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2022/04/28/pair-of-1946-jeep-cj-2a-find-of-the-day-0422

“These 2 1946 Willy’s Jeep CJ-2’s are being offered as a package deal. The Red Jeep is a 2 owner vehicle, being in the seller’s family since 1953! It has been meticulously restored using all period correct parts, and only comes out for shows or parades. The Black Jeep is built for fun! Utilizing a Kubota Diesel out of a refer trailer (only 500 hours), along with a full swap kit and advice from our friends at Overland Diesel. Both are in amazing condition, and are available now! The owner would love to see them both stay together, but will entertain offers on either of them separately.More details below.”

“Solid old jeep runs, drives and brakes well. Clear title. Mechanical restoration 5 years ago. Body original and untouched, well earned patina and surface rust. A few rust spots but this is road legal and safe as possible (no doors no seat belts no turn signals as it came originally). Gauges, clutch, 4×4 and PTO work great. Switched to 12volt to crank the original Go Devil motor a bit easier. Start it regular and it starts easy. Wait a month or two and it’s grumpy. New carb- new starter -newer tires. This first year civilian 1946 jeep has special one year features. Very cool fold down windshield with safaris. Military front axle. Has frame for bed with the parts. No cover. Back seat needs redone. Reasonable cash offers considered. This was my dad’s first car. My great uncle was original owner. I know its full history. Parked inside almost all its life. Has enjoyed many adventures that added character but not damage.”

“For sale is 1946 Willys CJ-2A serial number 94602. The jeep retains all of its factory frame and body tags as well as the original engine and drivetrain. The jeep has a valid NC title, the engine turns over freely and the trans and tcase shift through the gears properly. The body is in good shape overall for its age, saved by the top and being stored indoors. The areas that need attention are shown in the photos. This 2A is a wonderful example of a survivor and will make someone a great driver and/or restoration project.

“75 year old vehicle in fantastic condition has minor dings here and there but no major dents or damage to body or frame. Rust free. Needs a little TLC and can be a great winter project. Starts every time, but can be a little touchy with a one barrel carburetor. Numbers matching engine, original dash information tags included.

Mostly original except basic maintenance items. Also unsure about the paint being original. Unlikely, unless the paint is very faded because research suggests the factory blue would’ve been much darker. New battery in 2019, whole fuel system replaced, fuel filter, fuel tank all done by Hubbell’s Auto Repair in Marion, IA.

Had professional welder check over undercarriage and did frame brace welding work. Factory storage bin under passenger seat was professionally refabricated and welded by the same welder and he did a great job. Factory bikini top included. Originally 6V converted to 12V prior to second owner. 2 front seats, metal is original but cushion and upholstery replaced. Back seat all original.”
