1946 CJ-2A Lake Tahoe, CA $8500


I can’t tell if theirs rust alone the bottom of the driver’s side of the body or if it is something else.The jeep has some mods.

“Beautiful example of a rust free, unmolested old Willy’s. All the right upgrades, but still very nostalgic and original. Shackle extension to give it a little lift. F Head motor, upgraded axles, new wiring, upgraded windshield, still 6 volt, new front tie rods and ball joints, tires, rebuilt generator etc…. Pretty sorted, a little tinkering, but runs and drives pretty darn good for an ancient relic! I was so excited about getting it and really wanted to keep it, but I’m running out of room and have another project coming. Has a good soft top and doors included as well as a few extra parts. Seats are in excellent shape, rear seat is a bit worn, but looks like it might be original as well. Starts right up! Come take a look. The market is all over the place on these, but I think it is fair and even a little under for it’s condition. I’ve seen them for more and I’ve seen them for less. I feel it’s middle of the road.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000.

(09/14/2017) Could be worth a look.

“It can be used as a recreational or farm/ranch vehicle currently. It would need more work to become street legal. The engine starts and runs nice. It has a new aluminum radiator and never gets close to overheating. I’ve also recently installed new gas tank, lines and fuel pump, along with a new five year battery. The tires have great tread for the mud. All the gauges and lights work, but recently cracked the back light covers, which is a cheep and easy fix.”

1946 CJ-2A Tucson, Az $10,000


This has rack and pinion steering? I’m curious to see how that was setup.

“1946 Willys Jeep. First year civilian model. Buick V-6, Rack and pinion steering, 4 wheel disc brakes, rhino lined tub, new gauges and distributor in 2010, reupholstered Camaro seats and new fuel tank in 2011. Also has front and rear hitches and front tow bar. Good Michelin tires.

No I don’t want to trade for anything. No I won’t take your fake check and hold it for a few days while your shipper arrives no matter how interested you are. The bottom line is I don’t need help selling it and scammers won’t get anywhere.”

“This was my winter project last year. I purchased this Willys locally (Lancaster) in August 2016. It now has many, Many, Many new high quality parts. It actually has $4,171 worth of new parts installed (see below). I also have all of the receipts for the parts on hand.

I have only driven Jeep maybe 60 miles in the year since purchasing as I just finished all of the work to the Jeep in July.

All work done was done properly and without cutting corners. I had planned to keep this Jeep, but my wife and I are divorcing and she wants to sell this vehicle. This jeep is very nice, runs and drives great, and is very powerful. We are not in a hurry to sell this Jeep and are in no way interested in a trade, so please do not ask. We also do not require any help selling this Jeep.

I have uploaded a few pictures that I have here on my phone and will take better pictures this week. The pictures I just posted show the Jeep while in progress. Everything is done now.
