1947 CJ-2A Torance, CA $23,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Appears in good shape. That said, the claim that this is “unrestored” seems unbelievable given the CJ-2A did not come in this “traditional US Military” color. Here is a look at the colors: https://www.thecj2apage.com/paint.html

“Stored in a garage in the Colorado Mountains since 1982, this jeep was recently pulled out and revived. It shows just 17,557 miles on it. It runs remarkably well, starts easily, and has no visible smoke whatsoever.
It has a new fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel line, and rebuilt the carburetor. It got a major tune up, oil change and a new battery. All of the wheel cylinders were replaced, new brake shoes and a new master cylinder.
The dry climate in Colorado has preserved the body. There is a crack in the RR fender near the spare tire mount that is showing minor rust. The tub and floors are very good, but the floor supports are rusting and need replacing. (Easy to do and not expensive)
The seats and interior are in very good condition.
The tires are dry cracked and need to be replaced. Right windshield is cracked.”

“A 1948 Willy’s CJ2A. Jeep is in very good condition. Shows less than 18 K miles on odometer. This was a classic barn find near Audubon Iowa in 1978, and was purchased by my father and driven home. The motor was smoking badly at that time and it sat indoors in heated storage for many years. In the last few years the 4 cylinder flat head motor has been rebuilt, the 3 speed manual drive line gone thru, the brake,fuel, and cooling systems repaired/replaced.

New windshield glass. New seat cushions on all three seats on original frames. Still wears its faded and scratched “Princeton Black” 1948 paint excepting a few areas that were cleaned up as it was restored to be a turnkey driver. Factory(?) side steps All five original wheels, still in faded 1948 “Sunset Red”- which actually was a pumpkin orange- with a black trim stripe. All five wheels still mounted with military style non directional tires. Continue reading

Jeep appears solid. Carpet is covering the floors, but given this is eastern Utah, I doubt the floors would have much rust. Given the overspray, this might be painted ‘rattle can’ white.

AD From January 2019: 

“1947 Willeys JEEP. Amazing original in every aspect. Collector car!!! This is an original paint from 47 Jeep with every option from factory. It is in perfect running order and does not drip a drop of oil. It has California (gold) vintage plates. Everything included including books, spare tire, bed extender (worth $1000 alone) perfect canvas with clear clear plastic panels. Interior is perfect. All running gear like overdrive, 4 drive, high/low work as though new. THIS IS NOT AN OLD ARMY JEEP. This is a CJ or sold to the public jeep from 1947. All works, 6V, battery charger included but it start up first try. It want to be driven more than I get around to. Original pinstripe lettering (hand.) It has great tires, seats, floors. and addition accessories from factor live icebox and other details. This will not last.”

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.

Clean IN title in my name. Jeep is located in Haubstadt, IN 47639.
