1948 CJ-2A Deming, NM $2500


Hat channels need some work, but other wise the body looks decent.

I know nothing about the motor / tranny never messed with them ( so please don’t ask if it runs ) selling as is . If your looking for a clean tub here it is.”

“For Sale 1949 Willys CJ2A
This is a well running classic! Engine runs great, body is in good condition. I was planning to fully rebuild, but decided to work on other projects. Upgrades already include full custom roll bar assembly ($800) consistent with original dimensions, canvas cover ($750), and original front Koenig TPO winch which is extremely sought after for these vehicles!!! Good tires. Newer exhaust and muffler. A radiator with fan switch has been added so it can safely operate in the Nevada heat. In July 2021, replaced the battery, fuel filter, ignition coil and fuel pump and have receipt ($750). Has a 6 cylinder engine that was a popular replacement engine for this Willys. Have paperwork on what work has been done by the previous owners over the years. Also have a number of new gasket and seal kits that I purchased from KaiserWillys, but have not had a chance to install. These are all included. Clean title in hand. $7,200. Please no low ball offers. Vehicle is in Las Vegas”

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. ”

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.”

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.
