1948 CJ-2A Chilhowee, MO $13,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Mechanically, this looks like it’s been thoughtfully restored. I’m just not sure how the restorer figured out what the “correct WWII Olive Drab” would be?

1946 CJ-2A Bringhurst, IN $4500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

“Project vehicle, does not run. Body original and reasonably straight. Has some rust, nothing horrible, basically sound. Frame in excellent condition. Trans shifts, clutch operates, transfer case appears to be functional.

Has a Kaiser Supersonic L134 engine (not original, but very similar to original) installed. The installed engine does not turn over. Frozen. It is, however, complete. Carb, oil bath air cleaner, etc. Jeep comes with an original Willys Go Devil L 134 engine from a 48 Jeepster. That engine DOES turn over, though I have not attempted to start it. Was told by the person who pulled it from the Jeepster that it was a good running motor.

Photos show it without the windshield, but I do have the part. Glass is cracked. I have several additional parts: Complete new gasket set for L134 engine, rebuild kit for the Carter carb, set of 12v windshield wipers, set of 4 original rims in reasonable condition (plus the spare, shown). Clean MO title, in my name.”
