“1947 CJ2A project Willys ….CJ-5 drivetrain. * Titled as a 47 * Runs, but only if bottle fed. * plastic fuel tank. (Fuel is old) * Duantless V6 * Disc Brakes * Zero rust. NEEDS: * Currently No brakes. * Wiring to be finished. * Fuel system gone through. * And more. I do not want to sell this Willys, as it’s such an excellent platform for a good driver.

“This Willy’s CJ-2A was sold new on April 5th 1949 by West Motor Company, Steubenville, Ohio to the Wheeling Steel Corporation plant also in Steubenville. It was put to use by inside the plant and was outfitted by Howe with a hose reel. Its second life was with the Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Dept. They removed the reel and installed an 80-gallon water tank and was used as a brush truck. The third owner acquired it in 2005 and treated this Willys to a restoration. The tank was removed and restored to how you see it photographed, back to an inside plant, pumper Fire Truck. Lot’s of era correct parts we sourced and now this Willys is loaded from bumper to bumper with firefighting equipment. “Next Day Fire Department” is sure to be a hit anywhere it is driven or displayed.”

“I hate to do it, but it’s time. A collectors dream! A 1948 Willy’s CJ2A Fully Restored. The wife says it’s time to make room in the garage for a new vehicle we purchased. Have title in hand and the Jeep has been registered every year since 2003. The Willy’s has been garage kept. It was a frame off restoration starting back in 2003. All metal floor boards and body panels are completely free of any rust. The Engine was rebuilt by a professional Willy’s mechanic in 2006.

Most all gauges have been replaced or restored. Brakes, tires, and interior all in great shape. No tears in the seats. Interior fully spray lined. For a 72 year old vehicle this thing is in Amazing condition! I’m very meticulous with my stuff to say the least. 4WD works Great! This Willy’s was originally discovered in a barn in Wyoming. Odometer says 5,391 but only 3000 miles on rebuilt engine. Runs great-starts up with one click- a Real Head Turner for sure! No low ball offers”

“Hazzard Fabworx of Spokane has reworked the suspension, power steering, changed out all the fluids, battery, serviced the diffs/transmission/transfer case/overdrive, swapped in disc brakes all around (‘94 Geo Tracker) and installed lap seat belts. It has an “odd fire” V6 motor, Dana 30 front/Dana 44 rear both with 4.27 gears, T90 3-speed transmission, Dana 18 transfer case and a Warn overdrive.

I will say the original overdrive was a Warn but the owner before me had it rebuilt by Herm The Overdrive Guy in Washington, so it’s physically a Husky case now. It also has a Warn 4500 lb winch mounted on the front. The odometer reads 30k and change. The thing still runs and drives great. It doesn’t burn oil and still has the original VIN plate. The story I got when I bought it was that it was a forestry service jeep in Oregon, hence the decals.”

“1946 Willy’s project. We bought this as a project for my daughter, but we decided to go with a CJ instead. I have a ton of parts, along with another frame, but way too many to list. Vehicle was abandoned by the previous owner. I purchased it from the property owner the vehicle was abandoned on. Have not had time to apply for a title, but I was told by the Sheriff that it will not be hard to get.”

1946 CJ-2A Port Hadlock, WA $4500


It’s running rough at the moment.



“1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep $4500 obo
Mechanical restoration 4 years ago. Requires constant adjustments and work. Is running crappy again. Starts but running extremely rich. Dies if you drive it. Could be from modern fuel gumming needle again, could be carb needs cleaned and adjusted again, could be something else. Maybe it’s got carb jet size issue from being set up for 5000 feet but now it’s at 100 feet above sea level. Who knows.

Original go devil motor. New radiator and brake system. Original. 4WD works good. Tranny is good. Maybe 300 miles put on it since motor rebuilt.

This jeep has been in my family it’s whole life. My dad bought it in 1956 in Kansas City from my great Uncle who bought after WW2. I inherited it in 2012 and paid for a mechanical restoration only 4 years ago. This thing requires care and adjustments just to keep it running and I’m done messing with it. It’s never been fully restored. It’s got rust. It’s got the back seat frame too. No cover.

NO DELIVERY. Drag it home.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Eliot, ME $13,900


As the seller notes, the tub was rebuilt, but not to original specs.

“L134 Go Devil motor runs well, rebuilt carb, new intake and exhaust manifolds, exhaust, radiator, hoses, starter, coil, battery, thermostat, all new brakes including lines and master, all new Walek 12V wiring harness, rebuilt steering box, removed tub to clean and repaint frame (394441) which was replaced at some point by previous owners. The tub was rebuilt by a previous owner and it you are a purest, it will need to have some rework. The 3 speed T90 transmission works, Dana 18 transfer case and Dana 41 rear is good. All gauges work however I have no documentation to confirm odometer.

Windshield is off 3A but have a 2A frame. I have the original air cleaner but prefer the K&N for better functionality. All fluids have been replaced this year and many seals replaced. That said, these Jeeps leak. Top speed is 35-40 mph. This Willys was manufactured in February of 46 so it would have had the column shift and been either Pasture Green or Harvest Tan. Found some Pasture Green on the underbelly. Looking for enthusiast who wants to take this restoration to the finish line”
