1947 CJ-2A Fort Worth, TX $7000


Bailey’s selling this jeep. It seems worth a look to me. It appears to have a rare windshield extender that on top of the windshield frame that (I think) allows a channel for a 3A and later top to attach (it does come with a top).


“1947 CJ2A with original engine in good condition. Fully restored in 1996 with updated electrical and new transmission in 2018. Fully street legal and currently registered in Texas. Kept in garage for last 8 years and driven regularly. Great weekend cruiser or Jeep for the Ranch. Comes with aftermarket top and doors for winter driving. ”

2 CJ-2As Tyler, TX $6000 or OBO


The rust-colored 2A is a column shift, but not a VEC. It also may have the Hudson steering mod. It’s rim style is hard to find, too. Not sure how much value is actually here though.


“We have two Willys Jeeps. One of the units has a column shift (pretty rare) . I understand around 650k we’re built only 29k with column shift. Not sure of running condition all were bought on estate. Not sure of mileage , year, etc. Make offer.”

Rough shape but all there except interior.
All drivetrain is there. The engine is newer not the original flat head. Has an over head valve engine that I’m pretty sure is bad. Does have a rare hardtop with one door that’s in bad shape but probably fixable.
I’ve owned the jeep for years and realized I’m not going to have time to do anything with it.

“This listing is for a 1947 Willys Jeep. The Jeep has been in my possession or my father’s position for a very long time. It was in my father’s garage in Prescott forever and we brought it down here to Phoenix. It has a new battery but needs some overall work. The engine will crank and start but does not keep running. Most of the items on the Jeep are not original – notice the newer wheels etc. However, the battery, upholstery and windshield are fine. Headlights, taillights and blinkers all work fine. It does not have the original engine – the original engine would have been a 4 cylinder. This has a 6 cylinder and I am pretty sure it is from a Studebaker. The odometer gauge does not work and it says 21,227 but I’m sure there are more miles on it than this. I am hoping to sell this to an individual who is into Jeeps – I don’t need help selling it and I am not looking to trade it in – so no dealer emails. Thanks.”
