1946 Cj-2A Colfax, CA $2600


Seems worth a look. Note that it looks like part of a CJ-5 has been melded onto the driver’s side and rear of the jeep. The original body may have been an MB or GPW.


“Helping sell for a family friend 1946 jeep willys it has been converted for 12 volt battery it turns over nicely with starter not currently running need some points and a condenser and a possible carb cleaning used to run 5 to 6 years ago was used on his property no title bill of sale not on record be a fun ranch toy or back woods explorer and get to feel what them army boys felt back in the day”

1947 CJ-2A Kansas City, KS Copart auction


Bill shared this CJ-2A, serial number 83871 (just barely a ’47).There are only 23 hours left as of this posting. the current price is $500. Check out the engine compartment! Wow, just wow. Given what appears to be a gov data plate on the dash, this was likely modified which ever gov entity owned it. The bumper sure is an odd setup.

1947 CJ-2A Grangeville, ID $6000


UPDATE: Still Available.

Bill shared this CJ-2A. This body looking promising, but does have some rot underneath.

“Runs well. Brakes good and shifts thru all gears good. All lights work. Call for more info”

From the previous ebay ad:

“Body has floor and hat channel rot in Toolbox area and on driver side hat channel under step. Rest of floors in good shape for age. Runs, stops, and steers good. Refer to pictures for the shape of the rest of the body. Motor may not be the original L134 (# S 2171) over water pump. Tag on front driver frame horn damaged by welding. Taillight, stop light, headlights (high and low beams), high beam indicator, front park lights and dash light all work. No horn or windshield wiper (will come with one vacuum wiper) and gas gauge not hooked up, all other gauge’s work. Serial # 90,097 (makes it early 47 and that might explain the 46 grille), ACM body # 79474 and tailgate #79348. Tranny and transfer case shift and work good. Some bracing added to front frame horns, can be removed and repaired nicer. Seats, Glass (no cracks) in good condition. Gas tank is good and looks like it was replaced at some time. One of the pictures of the interments shows charging and oil pressure while running cold. A little TLC, cleanup and drive as is or a good base for a restore.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Rainier, OR $15,000


John shared this early CJ-2A. It’s had a few updates, but the indents and column shift are still there. There has been some body work (such as the elimination of the spare tire carrier mounting holes), along with new paint. If the underside on this is solid, it may well be worth a look at this price. I don’t impinge it would take too much to bring this back to stock.


“1945 Willys Jeep CJ-2A
All original except back bumper and top.
Original miles 45,640.
VIN# 10335.

1947 CJ-2A Long Beach, CA $6000


Hard to tell much, but it might be fairly stock.



“My family has an old jeep, it’s a relic that has been very hard for us to let go. It’s a 1947 Willys CJ-2a that’s been sitting in our garage for 30+ years. Was my great uncles. We wish we had the funds and resources to get this amazing piece of history drivable but it’s not realistic right now. The body is intact and everything is original besides a camo paint job my dad did a long time ago.. It doesn’t run and needs a complete overhaul because of how long its been sitting in our garage.
Fortunately, there are a lot of manuals online on how to do it.

I would love to see this jeep find a home to someone who would take good care of it and someone who wouldn’t mind staying in contact with my family so we could see the process of it being restored. and possibly have a ride in it once it’s finished being restored 🙂

Feel free to contact me for more details if you have any questions or concerns.

The buyer will have to come over and tow it themselves. we will do what we can to make it as easy as possible.”

1947 CJ-2A Durango, CO $1950


This looks to be a parts jeep. Has no title.


“As far as these go, it has a very solid and straight body. No rust of consequence, lots of great parts, tub, etc. Would make a great donor body or project to build. I do not know the exact year as I do not have a title. Bill of sale only. A past owner repowered this Willys using an early mustang 6 cylinder, it is installed and all hooked up. It “ran when parked”, but not drivable. The project was never completed and it has been sitting for many years. The motor does turn over. It needs a new home as I no longer have time for it.”

1946? CJ-2A? Hood River OR $5500


This runs. It’s got a late model 2A grille. The data plates look to be early CJ-2A at around 28XXX. The steering column had a shifter, but it’s been converted to a floor shifter. This last tool indents. So, I suspect at least some of this is early CJ-2A.
