1948 CJ-2A Owensboro, KY $4800


Could be worth a look.






“1948 Willys CJ2A.
Jeep has several updates including rebuilt T-90 transmission, new clutch and new brake lines. Repro steering wheel, carb and electric fuel pump.
Motor runs good, has good compression and doesn’t smoke. Transmission shifts good and does not pop out of second gear like may of this era with worn tranny parts. The 9-inch shoe brakes stop, but could use some more adjusting or an upgrade.
The body overall is in great shape but hat channels could use some attention.
Comes with a semi-rare and working Ramsey front PTO winch.
When new, these Jeeps were marketed as somewhere between a truck and a tractor, so if you’re expecting a old Jeep that rides like a slightly used Wrangler, this isn’t for you. But if you’re looking for an excellent restoration candidate that’s very similar to what won World War II, consider this one.
Converted to 12 volt with alternator.
Pics without top are older. Pic of jeep rear does not show drawbar and hitch that is now mounted and included.
Needs some tweaking but it’s a running, driving, stopping project.
$4800 or will consider good offer. Not interested in trades at this time. I don’t need to sell, just have too many projects/toys.
Clear title.

Four cylinder, 60 hp Willys “Go Devil” L-head engine
Transmission: T-90
Transfer case: Dana 18
Front Axle: Dana 25
Rear Axle: Dana 41″

1948 CJ-2A Duluth, GA $4000


It’s a project.


“I’m selling my 1948 Willys CJ-2A. It’s been a fun project but it’s taking more time than I have to offer. The Willy’s comes with about 1500 in new parts (I already installed all the suspension components). New gas tank, shifter, throttle cables, fuel lines, carb kit, distributor, air cleaner, fuel pump and many, many other parts.

The transmission is missing gears, but I’ve got the body so you can hopefully recoup that core charge.”

1943? Flattie Menifee, CA $9000


The body looks to be a DJ-3A body. I don’t see anything that suggest this was a 1943 MB/GPW.


“I have a 1943 Willys for sale. It is in excellent condition. It has 20,200 miles on it! I have a second set of black Willys wheels with military tires for it as well. Paint is a year old. I have the doors for it. It has the original drivetrain.(Go devil flathead engine, t90 transmission with Warn overdrive!). I have a tow bar for it, so it can be pulled behind a truck or r.v. This is the 18th and most favorite Jeep I’ve owned. I don’t have to sell, but I’m moving in a couple of weeks, so the cash would be helpful in the coming months. This jeep will not disappoint you! I will consider reasonable offers, but please don’t lowball me”
