1947 CJ-2A Scotts Valley, CA $7800


This is a big project with parts in uncertain conditions disassembled more than 30 years ago.



“I’ve had this Willys far too long and realize how unlikely it is that I’ll ever do the build I envision.
I purchased it in 1990 and dismantled in 1991, after I cooked the rear pinion gear. It’s been kept in a garage/tent in Santa Cruz Co. ever since. It was first placed in CA DMV non-op status in 1994 – I have a clean title in hand.

The contents for sale include all parts for a complete jeep (and then some), including:
– Body tub, fenders, grill, 2 hoods, windshield, tailgate, roll cage, 2 seats
– 302 Ford V8 – ran fine in 1991
– 4-core radiator (unused in box)
– Rebuilt Ford T18, 4 spd. transmission w/granny-low 1st gear
– New trans/transfer-case adapters, Centerforce clutch, pressure plate, t/o bearing
– ’74 CJ5 Model 20 transfer-case
– ’74 CJ5 transmission cross-member
– ’74 CJ5 Dana 20 front-end rebuilt w/limited slip diff, disc-brake kit & new Warn hubs
– Ford 9″ rear end w/ factory disc brakes – needs shortening & differential
– Orig. Dana 44 rear-end – needs rebuild
– (4) 8″x10” chrome 7-spoke wheels with tires ~90%tread
– Used Jeep wrangler leaf springs w/new in-box spring perches
– 2 frames – stock ’47 & ’74 DJ (postal jeep)
– Complete Bestop soft top
– Unused “bikini” top
– Wood project rack with casters

The posted price is what I figure the sum of the parts are worth. I’ll entertain offers – just not ridiculous ones.”

1947 CJ-2A Phoenicia, NY $5000


Glenn shared Andy’s ad for a 2A with a Newgren 3-point hitch and a rear pto.


“Up for sale is a very rare 1947 CJ2a. Besides remnants of original paint on the body and on the wheels this jeep has a very rare Newgren three point hitch. The jeep also has a full power takeoff to the rear. original upholstery on the rear seat. The engine has a King Seely governor and dashboard control. Original bumper. Also hard to find is the original top bow hardware for the half cab. I have the rear bow for the full cab also. Jeep will need a full restoration but given the rarity of this example it would be well worth it. Clear title”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/05/2022) This is a project. It may have a Warn OD.


“I have to many projects. It is a 1946 Willys cj2a. I pulled the engine and transmission. The motor is a 4 cylinder Chevy, I think it’s out of a mail jeep or a 1960s nova.

I have the pink slip. $4000 obo 9one6 three 9 seven 3 six 55 Will trade for a Suzuki sidekick/tracker, dirt bike, or a Rokon”

“1948 Willys CJ-2A with a 1944 MBs body retrofit but with vintage parts such as grill, glovebox, lights, wind shield, seats,etc.

Very close as a complete MB clone. Has new top, straps, and seats. Many parts have been replaced including wiring and alternator to a 12v system, cables, gauges, shocks, and muffler. Includes tow bar. Engine runs fine with good compression psi: 135,120, 125, 130. Transmission has a new clutch.

I recently bought this Jeep from my uncle with title and Collector plate. He used in mostly to ride in
parades and show it at car shows with a military auto club. It has now been completely mechanically inspected and is in the process of professional auto work and I decided to start a restoration at my home under cover. Car is available to see while work is being completed.

Vin plate is missing so I have a special appointment set up with the State Patrol to have a reassigned vin number added to car frame and body. I will support with attendance if you want to conduct the inspection with State Patrol.

Car need three tires (one tire is new).

Several thousand dollars spend recently on new parts:
Replacing all new brakes lines and master cylinder, (new wheel cylinders are in place now)
Replacing front hub seals and all axles seals,
Replacing new emergency brake pads and rotational seals transfer case seals,
Replacing clutch and brake pedals and clutch and brake rotational shafts and brake arm.
Fuel line is new and replacing fuel gauge.
Replacing front axle bearings.
Replacing steering shaft and sleeve plus rebuilding steering box.
Bought 2 gallons of Army correct paint but do not have time to paint.
A few places have rust so I bought replacement panels and in process of replacing (but probably will not finish soon).

I do not need help selling or in a hurry. Selling for what I invested so far minus my time. Cash only and no trades. I plan to keep the Jeep if close to price is not met and continue restoration in the spring. Mechanical works should be completed soon.

I do not have time to finish the complete project thus reason for sale. Price reduction can be negotiated if you want the car as is and finish the work. Price listed is with most of stated work to be completed.

I will not reply to emails or texts, please call only. Please serious calls only and no low balls or scammers!”

1946 CJ-2A VEC? Ogden, UT Auction


Roger shared this CJ-2A with driver side indents. I suspect that top requires the vertical windshield. The bidding is currently at $3300 with 9 hours to go. The drain holes have been filled and bow holders removed, so this likely has had some bodywork. It’s listed as a 1945, but more likely a ’46.
