1946 CJ-2A Middleton, ID $3500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/02/2023) I suspect this was originally a Fresno area jeep. Note that it has a Muller frame top along with side doors (possibly Dura Doors?).


“Project truck runs but needs love. New brakes need bled. Nice seats. 283 V8 3 speed. Bought it for $3500 replaced brakes and here it sits. I will take a loss on it just to get it gone but $3500 is rock bottom firm price. Will trade for fishing boat or classic pickup truck. These Willy Jeeps are small I barely fit in it and I really would like to not be working on old trucks anymore. Would rather go fishing. I have some extra parts for it. It’s really solid old rig just shows age. Price is firm so don’t waste time offering less. Clean title in My name ready for transfer”
