Year? VEC CJ-2A Bismarck, ND $3000


This seems to be a 1946 and has the early windshield and a column shifter, so likely it’s a VEC. However, it lacks indents. I can’t tell if it has full floating rear hubs or not.

“Hi there, I’m looking for a new and loving home for my Grandfather’s 1947 Willys CJ2A. He was the second owner and was in the middle of having a full restoration done on the truck before he passed away, and I unfortunately do not have the time to show it the love it deserves.

The body is straight, there are no dents, there is no rust, and it has a brand new paint job in a light metallic blue. If you are familiar with Willys you may notice that he updated the windshield frame the the later model to give it a rounder overall look. The engine, transmission, transfer case, and differentials were rebuilt and are installed in the truck, the only thing not installed is the front driveshaft.

I have two sets of doors to go with the jeep and a handful of the original parts to help put it back together. And it has a clean title. I’m asking $15,000 OBO, I know from the receipts I found he has much more than that into it. Trades welcome. I hope to find it a great new home.”

1947 CJ-2A Yucaipa, CA $4500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.

(07/03/2023) It’s a project with a 283/t90 combo and 2 225 Buick V6s, along with an SM420.



“I started something I can’t finish 1947 CJ2A… I bought this about two years ago. Ran and drove good, shifted well then had carb issues. It had a sbc 283/t-90 combo, but it started running rough. I pulled the 4 barrel Holley carb for a motorcraft 2 barrel, in doing so stripped the threads in the intake manifold. Ended up pulling the motor, found 2, 225 odd fires out of a jeepster. I also bought a SM420. Planned on building a nice trail rig. With lack of funds this project has been on standby and it’s not going anywhere. I have a rolling chassis of a jeepster along with this. I’m asking $6k for everything. Id be also inclined to trade, fishing boat, dual sport motorcycle, harley, Hobie PA, etc . I’m open to ideas. Of course delete is this is not appropriate. I AM IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA I’ll take $6k cash for everything.”

1953 CJ-3A Ashton, ID $2000


Engine runs. Has a Sears-type half cab. Unclear how much value is here.


“1952 CJ3a. The 4 cylinder flat head runs for a second or two when gas is poured down the carb. Tub has lots of rust. Clean title in my name. The windshield and hard half cab are for a CJ2a and do not fit quite right. Seat frames, wheels, and heater appear to be period correct. Located in Ashton, Idaho AND NO WHERE NEAR and hundreds of miles away from Boise or Coeur d’alene, Idaho. Tires will hold air just long enough to load on a trailer. Price is firm or I will part it out to make my money.”

1948-cj2a-cc-ut7 1948-cj2a-cc-ut8 1948-cj2a-cc-ut9

“1948 Willys CJ2A with clean Utah title in hand. The Good: 350 CI Chevrolet Goodwrench crate engine with very few miles, it runs well. Edelbrock Pro-Flo multiport EFI, adapter bellhousing mates to the original manual transmission, transfer case features twin shifters. Clutch is like new, All new brake shoes and wheel cylinders, new wheel bearings and hubs in front axle, and lots of other new parts. AutoMeter gauges all work. Includes a soft top. All fluids are fresh. The Bad: Power steering isn’t connected, unsure if it will work or not. Brakes and clutch are not working, likely a bad master cylinder and possibly a clutch slave cylinder. Some cancer on the floor pan support rails which is common because these were built with wood between the metal in these areas. Otherwise the rest of the body is cancer free. This 1948 CJ2A is a great platform for a rock crawler, sand buggy, or whatever your vision is. The 350 small block Chevy has tons of power for a small, lightweight vehicle like this. You can finish it as is or put the clean body on a custom frame built for whatever you’re in to.”
