1947 and 1948 CJ-2As WV Auction May 09

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Neither jeep has front frame horns, so it’s not clear exactly what years these are. Both appear to be militarized CJ-2As or CJ-3As in very good shape.

Gary shared this running CJ-2A (includes video of engine running).

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1565661937617181/

All original, CJ 2A with the iconic Go Devil engine. This little Willys has all original drivetrain. It runs great! Starts, steers and stops as it should. New clutch. New gas tank, new fuel pump, and rebuilt carburetor.  New tires on some sweet vintage deep dish wheels. Clean Colorado title in hand. We bought a side-by-side for my wife, so I need to liquidate a little of my Willys collection to help the bank account recover.”

“Hi there, for sale is my 1947 Willy’s Overland CJ2A. This little jeep has been an awesome vehicle, and doesn’t need much. It has the F-Head Hurricane Willy’s engine that was torn apart and completely gone through, along with the transmission and transfer case. Gaskets and seals were replaced and fresh oil throughout the drive train.

This will start on the first crank even after sitting for a couple weeks. The differentials have fresh fluid and the manual hubs have been gone through.

The transfer case has a high and low range Newer drum brakes and it stops reasonably well.

I drive it all over town and have had it on the freeway for short periods. It will go 35 great, but should probably get some new tires if you plan on long freeway trips.

The Jeep is coated in a Linex type coating that is extremely tough. No rust on the Jeep, any old spots were cut out and repaired by the previous owner. Asking $8,500 open to trade offers.”

I am the 3rd owner and have documentation from the original family including pictures and the history. It was purchased by a family friend who had it restored. The Jeep includes many accessories including an extended bed and an original style half cab top. I am currently in the process of installing a new radiator, new transmission synchronizers and some steering components.

“Edit: buyer who I was holding the Jeep for did not come so it’s back up for sale is my 1947 Willys CJ2A. I’ve owned this Jeep for several years, I did not do the restoration on the Jeep. If you’re looking for a “correct” Willys this is definitely not the one for you. The Jeep has a mix of aftermarket parts as well as an aftermarket body kit, you DO not have to worry about rust repair with this Jeep as other flat fenders of this era. It runs and drives okay, I ended up buying a Ford GPW military jeep so I’ve lost interest in maintaining and driving it. Clean and clear PA title in my name. With a Jeep this age there are a few issues- typical Jeep oil leaks. Occasionally the transmission will grind when downshifting into second, it DOES not pop out of gear, just will grind when going to a downshift. The fuel gauge also is not accurate whatsoever, I believe this to be a float issue, the rod might need to be adjusted accordingly to the fuel level in the tank. Vehicle is sold AS IS.”

1948? CJ-2A? Valparaiso, IN $6250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6250. As Muley notes, and I completely missed, this is 2WD. The engine and radiator suggests 2A, but the front frame rails have been modified, so those are no help in identifying it. The axle might be DJ, but it is five lug. So, appears a mix of parts based on the pics.
