1946 CJ-2A Tualatin, OR $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

The price seems good on this parts jeep whose body is plenty rusted. The hardtop has be confused. I think it may be a Koenig hardtop with customized “suicide” doors, but the windshield isn’t something I recognize. It may be this windshield allowed the use of a CJ-5 style hardtop.

The windshield doesn’t look like the DJ-3A windshield (shown here) nor does it look like the early Worman windshield (shown here). Anyone recognize it? It certainly looks production quality. I might have seen something similar on a jeep on Facebook, but I can no longer find that post.

2 CJ-2As Lena, IL $50,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

Bill shared this Hemming’s ad for 2 CJ-2As, one with the Kubota swap. This combo is listed on Hemmings. Given the red jeep isn’t quite stock (front bumper has extra metal, it’s missing the front bow holder, there appear to be no tail lights, and the front parking lights are incorrect) and the black jeep is even less so (has even more mods), though has a new  Diesel engine, the price seems a little aggressive.

https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2022/04/28/pair-of-1946-jeep-cj-2a-find-of-the-day-0422

“These 2 1946 Willy’s Jeep CJ-2’s are being offered as a package deal. The Red Jeep is a 2 owner vehicle, being in the seller’s family since 1953! It has been meticulously restored using all period correct parts, and only comes out for shows or parades. The Black Jeep is built for fun! Utilizing a Kubota Diesel out of a refer trailer (only 500 hours), along with a full swap kit and advice from our friends at Overland Diesel. Both are in amazing condition, and are available now! The owner would love to see them both stay together, but will entertain offers on either of them separately.More details below.”

“Not much of her past is known, but our Owner is a collector of all things rolling and he had a goal when building this CJ. Give her a punch of power, address the challenges and bring a beauty to the show. Brand new steel tub and frontend assembly were required. Paint scheme was selected, and the rebuild began. Finished, she’s show ready and just stunning. Located in Sindey, Nebraska, she has a clear and clean title in our Owner’s name.

Purchased in 2012 locally, she was believed to be a long term resident of the Mid-West. Time took its toll, so a spanking new all-steel body was acquired and painted a stunning green with white flame accents. And when you paint a Jeep, you pretty much paint everything. Never used off-road, her 10 yr old finish is bright and beautiful.

“1949 Willys Jeep: I’ve been working on this for about a year. Recently found out that engine needs to be rebuilt or need to swap in a newer/used engine. I took the body off, scraped, sanding, acid etched primed, then sprayed with a fine finish tip and put on a raptor liner coating. Black raptor liner to the underside and the inside of the tub. Sandblasted the rims, grill, bumpers, light housings and powder coated with matte black finishes. New gauges, new steering wheel, new reproduction seats with new vinyl. New tires. New. shocks. New muffler, exhaust system. It’s been fun but I’m not wanting to dump another $2,000-$3,000 for the engine upgrade.”

Year? CJ-3B? w/ Unusual Parkette Body Blue Ridge, GA $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available. The serial number is included, so the year should be estimate-able.

(06/22/2021) Given the front clip, this might be a 3B chassis, though the Parkette body is a low-hood version.

The seller is correct about Paul Parker and the body. But, I believe this is the first version of this particular style that I’ve seen. It lacks the side stripe, has fender extensions, has a little different PARKETTE design on the back, has an extra wide lip around the rear, and looks like it has a side step. Very interesting.

year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga1year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga2year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga3year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga4
“Rare, rare, rare. 48/49 Willys Jeep with Parkette fiberglass body. Believed only a handful made while Paul Parker was back in Georgia. This one is a bit odd as it doesn’t have the “line” above the fender but it does have flared fenders; the Willys nose panel is original equipment. Not sure it’s on the right size frame at the moment but we do have an original Willys bare chassis on the property we can work into the deal.

Engine/trans present. Very cool project. Needs finishing. No title. Bill of sale only. If the ad is up, the Willys is available.”
