1948 CJ-2A La Grande, OR $2500


I was surprised to see this still had an L-head engine. Between the running engine and tires, there may be value here.


“Obo, everything original obviously besides wheels and tires, it also runs and drives. The steering column is not in place but I have it that’s the only thing wrong with it p.m. me for more info or anything”

1946 CJ-2A Rochester, MI $1600


Looks like this is a column shift 2A (probably 3XXXX serial number).


“1946 Willys 2a(Price dropped to $1600, the motor, trans and case are now sold) $1600. This has a Michigan title, in my name. The first pic is as got it and now disassembled. Its a project that I was going to build on, that said I have “to many projects” now so this one well be let go. The body is all there: tub, tail gate, front clip which includes front fenders, grille and hood and windshield frame. The frame and rolling chassis. The tub is very fixable. What looks solid is solid and whats looks rusty is. Replacement parts are available for these tubs from various venders and even made here in the USA. I do have seat frames, good shape. No radiator. Vin tages are the original ones, on the tub and frame and never been tampered with. Available till add deleted.”

1946 CJ-2A Tulsa, OK $5000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/12/2020) This jeep has undergone some modifications. The body has been cut in places and patched in others. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this jeep is the hood (aftermarket?), which is mounted at an angle with the back up high, presumably to fit the Chevy 350.

I am selling a very nice 1946 Jeep Willys-Overland CJ-2A, twin stick 4×4, manual, 3 speed. It has had a frame-off restoration. No rust on the cab. VERY STURDY, no rusted through portions. Nice, thick paint. The paint is pretty good overall, but has scratches and imperfections. The has been swapped for a Chevy 350 with true dual exhaust with cherry bombs (Sounds good, not obnoxiously loud). It starts easily, runs great, has tons of power, and drives well both offroad and street. The transmission was pulled from a CJ-2A 6 cylinder, and the remaining drive train and axles are all original to the vehicle. The passenger seat flips up. The windshield folds down. The lights work.

“So it’s time for me to sell my favorite toy. I’ve had this little red Jeep for a couple years now and it’s been a blast. The 78 Buick V6 is a beast in such a little vehicle. The Dana axles are strong and make this thing fun to run on any street or trail. The 33” tires aren’t huge but they’re no rinky dink spares either. The chrome wheels make this thing at home at any hot rod meet up or rigs and coffee too.

It’s got an original Warn 8274 winch with a steel cable. People have offered me a grand just for that, but I won’t separate them. It’s got a flat tow set up bolted on, you can leave it on or remove it quickly. I’ll also include my Willys Tonka truck with it. I bought it from an antique toy seller just to keep these together, always thought it was a cool little deal. Continue reading
