The builder of this jeep (who isn’t the seller) had an unusual solution for the front driveline. Not sure why it is attached at all. The seller also provides full disclosure that it shouldn’t be driven faster than 55mph.
It’s a project.
“PRICE DROP!!!! Project jeep needs finished built small block 350 44 rear end 30 front end t 18 tranny and Dana 20 t case and an extra frame call or text me with questions”
UPDATE:Price dropped to $2350.
“For sale is a very complete and very restoreable 48 cj2a. I bought this as a project to hopefully do with some local youngsters as their first project, but it seems that interests have changed and they are not interested in it any more . . . This jeep is a fantastic restoration candidate because of how complete it is. Original engine and running gear, and many of the parts that are usually gone are still here. Engine does not run. PO removed the head and reported a stuck valve . . . so I would count on doing some engine work . . . it does turn over freely, so I would guess just minor work needed. Transmission and transfer case shift fine. It was “barn kept” for many many years and, although there is rust thru in the usual spots, it is much, much better then most I have seen and at a much better starting point then the one I restored . . . . if you are looking for an early jeep project, then this is definitely one to look at . . . . I am not interested in low ballers or scams, I know that I can easily net my asking price by parting it out, and am perfectly willing and able to do that . . . but if someone whats to take it all at once to fix it up, then that’s my preference!!”
UPDATE: Was $10,000. Now no Price.

(06/24/2013) Given it doesn’t look like there was any gas filler on the driver’s side, I’m not sure what body this is front. Maybe DJ or repro? Looks like a nice build.

“This is a mostly original Willys Jeep, the first year for the CJ series. It does have some rust but is repairable. The right side floor was repaired by a previous owner. The motor was swapped out to the later F head overhead valve engine. It is stuck or frozen, and does not turn over. Previous owner said he drove it several years ago and left it parked, so it will probably need a tear down.
The Willys comes with a clear Oregon title.”
Still needs work.
“1946 CJ2a, this jeep has a title. First off, this willy’s isnt perfect. It runs and drives, but still needs some tinkering. I got this jeep about a year ago in a trade and drove it once around the field when i brought it home and been parked in the shop ever since. I want someone to buy this jeep and use it the way it needs to be used. I’ve replaced all of the fluids, and plugs. It will start right up. It just needs to be drove. So what is wrong with it you ask? There is a little rattle when going down the road, It needs a new master cylinder for breaks (old one leaks. 45$ online) its missing one rear shock, and it leaks just a little. (I believe its a couple bolts in t case that need to be tighend, you’ll have to grind down a wrench to get it to fit) The Willy’s has the stock power train except for wider Willy’s truck axles. Its locked front and back, with lock outs on the front. Has a winch on the front but the disengage/engage switch is broke. Winch does work.
I also have the original oil bath air filter to go with it.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
