“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.”

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.
