“47′ willys jeep. Custom built 4″x2″x.120 wall tube frame. Original body stretched 6″. 2.8l v6 with sm420 4 speed advanced adapters adapter to a T18 transfer case. T-case was upgraded to t20 intermediate shaft. Howe aluminum radiator. Chevy steering box. 62″ wagoneer Dana 44s front and rear. Front suspension is 3-link with aluminum control arms and heim joints. Set up for 12″-14″ coil overs. Rear is triangulated 4-link with aluminum control arms and heims . When I built it I set it up for 39″ tires so they will clear the body. This is a project I have been working on for a long time but I finally realized I just don’t have the time to finish it. Most of the hard work is done it just needs to be finished up. It has a clean title in my name and is on a non op now.”

1948 CJ-2A Altoona, PA $1500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/24/2017) The seller acquired about a dozen non-running jeeps. This is one of them. It looks to have a Kelly hardtop.

“1948 Willy’s CJ2A.. We have acquired a dozen or so older vehicles (mostly Jeeps) that would be great as parts vehicles or some that came with titles could be used as a project vehicle.. A lot of these parts are no longer made or come special order from companies at an extreme price.. Please see photos.. What you see is what you get.. The vehicles will need hauled as none of them are in running condition.”

CJ-2A Body Spring Valley, CA $600

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, CJ-2A

It’s not perfect, but maybe someone can use this.

“1947 Willys CJ2A body tub, front fenders, hood and grille for sale. All has ratty-looking flaking white/blue paint, bondo, old fiberglass, surface rust, etc. but has been repaired structurally to be usable, or suitable for more restoration.

Tub floor and hat channels have been replaced but the lower sides need attention unless you want to go the Rat Jeep route. Front fenders are a little rough, but repaired and usable until you find better ones. Hood has had a hole repaired and is also usable. Grille is in good condition, but headlight buckets are missing. Will throw in remains of a later tailgate to complete the ratty set. All pieces but tailgate have matching “patina” as noted.

Asking $600 for the lot, mainly because of the hours in the tub floor. Have a couple equally ratty matching windshield frames for extra $.”

1948 CJ-2A Modesto, CA $8500


Jeep’s been rebuilt, but seller thinks the engine would benefit from a rebuild, too.

“Selling the Jeep that I don’t use any more. I bought it as a project, rebuilt it, and now with the lack of time I have decided to sell it. Many new parts which include brakes from master cylinder all the way to the calipers, body panels, multiple drive train parts. It runs well, the oil pressure is low but still within the standards set in the Jeep manual. If I was to keep it, I would pull the original 4 cylinder and have it rebuilt. All new wiring, lights, reupholstered seats, bed liner sprayed in, sandblasted rolling chassis and professionally painted body.”
