1947 CJ-2A Morrisville, VT Bring-A-Trailer Auction


Greg from Overland Diesel, which sells Kubota conversion kits for jeeps, shared this modified CJ-2A for sale.


“This 1947 Willys CJ2A was acquired by the seller out of Georgia in 2018 and has since been repowered with a Kubota 2.2-liter turbodiesel inline-four mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and a two-speed transfer case. The body has been repainted in a desert camouflage scheme, and the truck is lifted over 32″ tires on beadlock wheels. Additional modifications include a roll cage, side steps, power steering, an 8k-pound winch, replacement seats, and more. This CJ2A is offered with a Bestop top and doors, refurbishment photos, and Vermont registration in the seller’s name.”

2 CJ-2As and a CJ-3A Winso, GA $900


This looks like a good price.


jeeps-winsto-ga1 jeeps-winsto-ga2 jeeps-winsto-ga3

“Don’t get excited, they don’t run . . yet. Three vintage early CJ jeeps, all Willys, two CJ2As and one CJ3A. What you see is what you get.
I purchased these three at different times from different sources and was going to get one running “Sarge” jeep for parades and events. Believe enough parts are here to get close to that. But another jeep came my way that will accomplish that purpose and these three can go to a good home.
All three motors turn, not stuck, but have not attempted to start, some do not have manifolds and carbs. Again, my intent was to get one out of three, that’s why I’m sell all three as a lot. $900 takes them all and any loose parts I can find laying around.
The 3A has a L134 engine with a Supersonic head on it and a carb and is the closest to running and the most complete body. One 2A has a Willys L134 motor and the other has a Willys L134 Industrial engine. All three have T90 transmissions and one has a PTO winch mounted on the front bumper.

I have fork lift to assit with loading but if you want to push them or winch them onto your trailer, we might have to switch some tires and wheels around to get rollers.”

1946 CJ-2A Fayetteville, AR $15,000


Looks like a clean rebuild, but it does lack some stock items, from missing gussets on the front to the missing the pto bar on the back.


“1946 Jeep Willy’s. This jeep is amazing. It had a frame-off restoration on it probably 7 or 8 years ago. The motor has been rebuilt. It has a new tub and hood and I have all of the receipts from the parts for the restoration. Over $7k worth at least. It sat for a few years and has a small leak at the transfer case seal but overall this thing is immaculate. It runs and drives great. Only has 20 miles on it since the restoration.”

1950 CJ-3A Carnation, WA $2000


It’s a project.



“1950 Willys Cj3a. I bought this about 10 years ago in Idaho and decided I wanted to put the original L-Head back in. I found an engine in excellent condition, with a high compression head on it. I swapped the original engine, transmission, t-case back in, but didn’t really button the job up. I also started a dual master cylinder conversion, but haven’t finished that, so consequently it has no brakes now. But I’ve got the parts for that.

It’s got rust in the normal spots, especially in the channels on the belly, but the body’s actually in pretty good shape. I’ve kept it in my shop, never out in the rain.

Show up with a trailer and I’ll help you load it. I’ve got the title, but I never transferred it into my name, so it’s the previous owner’s Idaho title.”
