1946 CJ-2A Project Boeren, TX $8450


This has been available for a while.




“Posting this ad to see if anyone is interested in taking over a CJ2A frame of restoration. Would be a terrific father/son project, which was my intent but my boy is too young right now. This project includes pretty much every single nut and bolt needed to build a CJ2A. I have probably invested over $13k in parts from various sources so my loss your gain. I have a 100% new body (most of it still in shipping bubble wrap), rolling frame and chassis, original engine, transmisssion, etc. Included is an entire trailer full of NEW IN BOX parts to go with this project. Wiring harnesses, rebuild kits, brakes, clutches, etc, etc, etc. Included in the deal is a fuel injected 4.3L vortec engine I was considering installing. The whole project is currently stored in my enclosed trailer so delivery could be potentially arranged depending on proximity. Clean title in hand. Looking for cash. Low ball offers and rude comments need not apply.”

Hasn’t been started in several years. It’s had some body work.


“For sale a 1949 Willys CJ2A. I have owned this jeep for 20 years and it’s been garage kept since I’ve had it. Have not attempted to start it in several years so it definitely needs some mechanical TLC but the body and frame are solid. No rust. If I remember correctly the previous owner did an off the frame restoration. I’d love to see it running again but I just don’t have the time or know how. $5,000 OBO. NO TRADES.”

1951 CJ-3A Milwaukee, WI $2200


Might be worth a look.

“Willys 1951 CJ-3A. Frame and tub are in pretty good shape. Needs motor. There is a block with crank and pistons. Rolls and steers easily. If you are looking to restore this model or make it an army jeep this is a pretty good platform to start with. Body panels are in good shape and the tub floor needs some work but is fairly solid. Frame underneath looks okay.

Originally I was going to make a clone WWII jeep by replacing the CJ tub with an MB tub. Long story short, my supreme commander gave me a deadline to start the project. That deadline has passed and I don’t have the time to start so I would like to pass it on to someone else before the snow flies. CJ sat indoors for many years until about two years ago. Stays covered since. No title. I paid $2500 for the CJ and I’m open to hearing serious offers and making a deal but would like to get a decent chunk of what I paid back. So please keep that in mind as you make an offer.”
