1947? DJ-3A/CJ Dalton, OH $2200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A

Tom shared this flattie for sale. This looks to be a DJ-3A Convertible body on a CJ chassis (probably 2A based on the engine and radiator). I’m betting the gas inlet on the driver’s side is a mod.

“For sale is a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ2A. I believe this is a civilian Jeep. It has been owned by the same gentleman since 1989. He was a local guy in Marina, CA. This was his hunting rig that he drove for years. It ended up sitting for sometime as he got too old to drive it. But it is an original CA black plated car that has its clean title. Since we got the jeep we did a number of different things. It has an all new carburetor, rebuilt starter, new plugs, new points. We replaced the timing chain and a few other little things. Currently it is running and driving pretty well! It still obviously needs to be gone through some more but currently it will run and drive down the road, shift through all its gears well, has a working overdrive and even the old Koenig PTO winch is working perfectly. The tires are in great shape. The brakes I worked on a little bit, but it will need additional work. Working E-Brake and working lights! This jeep is solid all around and has very minimal rust.”

$2200.00 with bill of sale $2800.00 if i find the pink slip.

Cash no checks no cashier’s check

If it’s listed it still for sale

This is the factory cab not aftermarket Sears, JC Whitney, Acme

UPDATE: I’ve been asked if this is a Worman MFG cab ,from my understanding wormans were the first aluminum Willys Factory contracted. Please click link below for explanation on this cab

Like most steel aftermarket hard tops, the Willys halfcab was much too heavy to casually remove and re-install, so many of these impressive half cabs have been scrapped, making this a rare and very desirable hard top.

1946 CJ-2A Nevada, TX $8750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

Has some mods and a Ford Pinto engine, though I don’t believe the company ever made a 2.4L for the Pinto. Interesting enough, there were multiple distinct versions of the 1.6L and 2.0L (this info on Pinto engines was an interesting read).

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/509914190911024/

“The body is in nice shape for a 76 year old vehicle. The engine has been replaced with a 2.4L from a Ford Pinto. It has a Warn overdrive on it. The carb needs some work but it does start. 2 sets of tires and both need replaced. Has soft doors and top that are in fair condition. Has title. Trades considered for vintage cars as long as they have 2 doors.”

1946? VEC? CJ-2A/M-38 Missouri Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, M-38

Give the data plate serial number of 29621, I thought this might be a VEC CJ-2A chassis with an M-38 body. However, note the grille and front crossmember seem set up for a grille mounted radiator, rather than a front member mounted radiator. But, it is definitely CJ (not M-38) chassis. This doesn’t run.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/5261708567278679

“Here I have a 1947 Willy’s jeep that I believe to be the military version. It is almost complete with not to bad of rust. Motor is NOT locked up and spins freely. The radiator is missing, I do have the headlight that is missing in the pictures. I can take better pictures for more serious people. I am currently only looking to trade for a good 4 wheeler or possibly a pickup, classic VW, throw me a offer.Does have a clean title”
