Hat channels need some work, but other wise the body looks decent.


“No title. I bought it with out a title. Tag still on firewall I believe its a 1948. I bought it to make a rat rod out of but just to solid to cut up. I know nothing about the motor / tranny never messed with them ( so please don’t ask if it runs ) selling as is . If your looking for a clean tub here it is.”

“For Sale 1949 Willys CJ2A
This is a well running classic! Engine runs great, body is in good condition. I was planning to fully rebuild, but decided to work on other projects.

Good tires. Newer exhaust and muffler. A radiator with fan switch has been added so it can safely operate in the Nevada heat. In July 2021, replaced the battery, fuel filter, ignition coil and fuel pump and have receipt ($750). Has a 6 cylinder engine that was a popular replacement engine for this Willys. Have paperwork on what work has been done by the previous owners over the years. Also have a number of new gasket and seal kits that I purchased from KaiserWillys, but have not had a chance to install. These are all included. Clean title in hand. $7,200. Please no low ball offers. Vehicle is in Las Vegas”

1946 CJ-2A Fountain, CO $5000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/03/2022) I’m not sure if the f-head in the back is extra or even comes with the jeep.

“Very cool 1946 Jeep CJ2A. This was sitting in a field for quite some time. The owner I bought it from did not title the jeep. The previous owner could not locate the title. So you will need to get a bonded title. I had multiple offers on the way home when picking it up. Will have a bill of sale.. I have shown this jeep to a serious collector and he said this is the kind of jeep he looks for. It’s virtually un molested. It does have rust in the floor under the tank and where the tool box is on passenger side. I bought a new tank and sending unit for it and gas cap.

It also has a new repair manual. The previous owner drove it around for me but did so without working brakes. He used a retro fitted fuel can to make it work. Engine ran rough probably needs carburetor cleaned out real good. I believe the brakes could be bleed. Not sure of their condition. Has to original style seats. This would make a great little project. These thing are going for crazy money and It has the Ford type head. Let me know it your interested and I’m not really gonna budge on price. Other motor shown in pic is not included.”

1947 CJ-2A Springfield, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Not sure how much value is here. The seller indicates there is a 3 Point Hitch, but I see no pics of one nor do I see a rear PTO gearbox (maybe seller meant ‘was’ equipped?).

“Very Very Rare.
This 1947 Willys Jeep was used Off Road. It’s equipt with a factory 3 point hitch in the rear and a factory hydraulic ram for a front blade.

The flathead L134 engine is full of water. The spark plugs disappeared
do to water on the cylinder head.

No title, never had a heater, rusty floors. It’s still 6 volt. The hydraulic pump is gone.

A new body is available for $2,400.

Adapters for a 4.3 Chevy are less than $500.

These Jeeps are called Agrijeeps.
This jeep with a new body and rebuilt engine would be worth a great deal.

I will consider offers on the
Ag components. Not cheap! The Willys is very straight and deserves a 2nd chance. Not a ding in it.
It has a bunch of rare parts. The entire front sheet metal is really nice.”

1947 CJ-2A Fort Worth, TX $7000


Bailey’s selling this jeep. It seems worth a look to me. It appears to have a rare windshield extender that on top of the windshield frame that (I think) allows a channel for a 3A and later top to attach (it does come with a top).


“1947 CJ2A with original engine in good condition. Fully restored in 1996 with updated electrical and new transmission in 2018. Fully street legal and currently registered in Texas. Kept in garage for last 8 years and driven regularly. Great weekend cruiser or Jeep for the Ranch. Comes with aftermarket top and doors for winter driving. ”

2 CJ-2As Tyler, TX $6000 or OBO


The rust-colored 2A is a column shift, but not a VEC. It also may have the Hudson steering mod. It’s rim style is hard to find, too. Not sure how much value is actually here though.


“We have two Willys Jeeps. One of the units has a column shift (pretty rare) . I understand around 650k we’re built only 29k with column shift. Not sure of running condition all were bought on estate. Not sure of mileage , year, etc. Make offer.”

“48 Willys CJ-2A with a title in my name.
Rough shape but all there except interior.
All drivetrain is there. The engine is newer not the original flat head. Has an over head valve engine that I’m pretty sure is bad. Does have a rare hardtop with one door that’s in bad shape but probably fixable.
I’ve owned the jeep for years and realized I’m not going to have time to do anything with it.
Looking for $1000 will negotiate in person if you’re interested.
Feel free to call or text me with any questions.”
