“Willys. 1946 CJ2A (agri Jeep or farm jeep) Note the extra shifter in the floor….. I purchased this Jeep from my parents estate. My dad had many Jeeps through the years and this one he thought was special because not many agri jeeps were produced. Has been in storage for last 8 yrs right where these pics were made. I did crank it a few times but I think fuel pump has gone bad since. 134cu.in. “Go Devil” engine makes 63 hp @ 2,000 rpm.

These Jeeps were hitched to plows, cultivators,mowing machines, harrows,and lime spreaders to tackle common farm tasks. Tires are dry rotted, there is a small hole in floor board on pass side [see pic] all other sheet metal seems to be in good shape. Chassis not rusted, only surface rust. Was painted best I can remember 20 yrs ago… New top bows as indicated in pics, do not have the canvas top. Tilt out windshield. Also have an extra engine, transfer case and trans, along with 2 extra heads. Not sure of the year but looks to be the same thats incld. Will assist in loading. Could get it running and drive as is or restore.”

“***I am helping a friend sell this, please be patient and I will answer questions as I am able to relay them and get a response*** VIN: 38222 1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A 77 year old vehicle in fantastic condition has minor dings here and there but no major dents or damage to body or frame. Has some surface rust on undercarriage as shown. 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

“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”
