1947 CJ-2A Helena, MT $4700


Needs brake maintenance.

I’m selling my 1947 Willy’s Jeep that is dressed up like an Army Jeep. This thing looks cool! I bought it from a guy last fall with the intention of using it for advertising, but I have to many cars again. The previous owner said that he pulled everything apart and rebuilt the engine, tranny, t-case, axles, and the body, then put her all back together and painted her army green. I added the stars and US markings just to dress it up a little. It needs the brakes serviced and bled, some seat covers, and a windshield. Personally, I would sell the M38 windshield frame and buy an old split windshield frame instead, but you can decide what you would like to do. As always, I am interested in trades. I love guns and military stuff, but am open to anything. I like old sports cars and muscle cars too.”

1949 CJ-2A Richfield, PA $1000


Doesn’t run.

Here’s a 1949 willys cj2a that my buddy and I was going to fix up but lost interest. We had it running about 3 years ago I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t still run, other than it needs a fuel pump. We had sold another jeep about 2 years ago that needed a fuel pump so we just borrowed this one. Over all its not really in that bad of shape considering what I have seen setting around. The undercarriage is real good, and the body isn’t really all that bad. The picture of the left side of the jeep isn’t really that good, but that is paint peeling not rusted out. We do have all 4 original wheels for it but there is only one pictured. The windshield is just the frame , never had a windshield for it. What can I say, look at the pics and if you have any questions or are interested feel free to give me a call. I have sold several of these jeeps in a lot worse condition than this one for the same money. Just would like to get it out of the road. So don’t be afraid to make an offer I just might take it. If its listed its still for sale, I will delete if it sells. Thanks for looking. I DO HAVE TITLE FOR THE JEEP.”

1946 CJ-2A Payette, ID $3500


Doesn’t run.

My uncle owned this Jeep for about 10 years and used it once a year to go from Payette to his cabin out of Council hunting. He then bought a Bronco and parked the Jeep. I bought it from him about 1978 and used it for hunting for about 6 years. Then I bought a pick up. When I got the Jeep I put new tie-rod ends in it and ball joints. It had some broken teeth on the ring gear so I pulled the motor and pressed on a new ring gear. While I had the motor out I went ahead and put in a new clutch, pressure plate, and throw out bearing. I had got this done and was starting to hook up the clutch and adjust it when I had to go to work out of the area for a few years. I parked the Jeep with the idea that I would get back to it but never have. For a number of years I would pull the plugs and put oil in the cylinder and turn it over at least once a year but have not done that for a several years. I have lost the only key I had so I put some oil in the cylinders and jumped the starter and it turn over good a couple weeks ago but have not started it. It all original except it is now 12 volts instead of 6 and someone has replace the tail gate with a solid piece of metal. If you want more information or want to see it call show contact info You will have call because I do not text or email.”

1946 CJ-2A Loveland, CO $3900


This might be a good price.

Up for sale is my 46 Willys jeep cj with a small block chevy 327ci. The conversion was very well done with manufactured conversion plates (not homemade), motor mounts, correct size radiator. This jeep runs and drive great. I have driven it down the Interstate at 70mph no problem (warn over drive makes a huge difference). Over all I would consider it to be in average shape cosmetically and great shape mechanically. At one point in time someone had spend a large chunk of money on it and rebuilt the entire jeep to be a custom. The drivetrain including axles, transfer case and transmission are out of a 1971 jeep, which means it has the very rare DANA 44 with one piece axles. I pulled a valve cover and the engine is very clean which leads me to believe the engine was rebuilt when conversion was done. As far as everything different it has from stock…

- SBC 327 Chevy 
- Aluminum intake 
- 750cfm carb
- MSD coil
- MSD distributor 
- Oversize radiator 
- WARN overdrive 
- 3 speed tranny
- Dana 44
- New roll bar
- 31′s on chrome rims
- Steering stabilizer 

For being a 1946, there is minimal rust. There are no rust holes on the exterior of the body, just a few surface rust spots. The only major rust hole in the jeep is in the floor of the tool box. The paint is not perfect by any means but is not horrible. There are a couple heavy bondo spots. The last issue with the body is the floor boards have kind of been piece together, it is real cheap to buy new floor boards though weld them in. I have brand new Goodyear wrangler tires going on it this next weekend. Also I have a nice one piece steering arm that I will include with it. Jeep only has a bikini top but that’s all you need on a classic. The jeep has been stored inside.”

1946 CJ-2A Allegan, MI $15,000


This militarized CJ-2A looks solid.


1946-cj2a-allegan-mi1 1946-cj2a-allegan-mi2

I had long wanted a Jeep MB like the one I used during the Korean war. I have restored several vehicles through the years and in 1994 I began searching for a Jeep to restore. Turns out these Jeeps are quite rare, and even those few I found were never exactly equipped like that Jeep.
At that point I decided the only way to duplicate that Jeep was to build one. I started with two parts Jeeps (a non-titled 1945 and a titled 1946) and went about testing the condition of components, disassembling the parts, cleaning and painting and listing those items I still needed. All original Willy’s engine and running gear are retained. The bodies of my donor Jeeps were fairly rough and the decision was made to fit it with an exact duplicate, all steel reproduction Jeep MB body. It is absolutely rust free. This Jeep is Michigan titled as a 1946 Jeep.

1946 CJ-2A Northern Maryland $2500


It runs. Trailer NOT included.

Runs, and I have driven it in low and high range. No brakes. Set-up to run off 12V but the 6V Generator is still there. None of the instruments work. The body is patch-repaired extensively on the driver/passenger cockpit, plus work done to rear side panels but the rear and tail gate are mostly original. Titled. Shown in the photos, but not included in the sale, are the spare tire tower, black-out light on the fender. The trailer is not included in the sale. Price is $2500, best offer, or interesting trades considered. “
