Year? CJ-2A Bakersfield, CA $3500


I believe this has a set of Huffman hubs, but the original toppers may have been replaced. It’s listed as a 1949, but the grille suggests an early year. That said, the hood and windshield aren’t original to the jeep, so the grille might not be either.

1946 CJ-2A Westbrook, CT $2500


The half cab appears patched. It might have been sears-type cab at some point? Thanks to John for sharing.


“1946 Willys CJ2A. Former service station Jeep equipped with a plow setup and aluminum half cab. Original “L head” engine had been swapped with a later “F head” engine at some point. Hasn’t ran in about 5 years. It does turn over but I believe the distributor needs to be replaced. All the serial number tags are intact. Body is very rough especially the floors. Frame seems to be in decent shape. Good candidate to fix and use on the property, use for parts or restore with new sheet metal. Plow blade is included. No title just a bill of sale. $2500 obo.”
