2 CJ-2As Lena, IL $50,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

Bill shared this Hemming’s ad for 2 CJ-2As, one with the Kubota swap. This combo is listed on Hemmings. Given the red jeep isn’t quite stock (front bumper has extra metal, it’s missing the front bow holder, there appear to be no tail lights, and the front parking lights are incorrect) and the black jeep is even less so (has even more mods), though has a new  Diesel engine, the price seems a little aggressive.

https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2022/04/28/pair-of-1946-jeep-cj-2a-find-of-the-day-0422

“These 2 1946 Willy’s Jeep CJ-2’s are being offered as a package deal. The Red Jeep is a 2 owner vehicle, being in the seller’s family since 1953! It has been meticulously restored using all period correct parts, and only comes out for shows or parades. The Black Jeep is built for fun! Utilizing a Kubota Diesel out of a refer trailer (only 500 hours), along with a full swap kit and advice from our friends at Overland Diesel. Both are in amazing condition, and are available now! The owner would love to see them both stay together, but will entertain offers on either of them separately.More details below.”

“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.”
