“1948 willys Jeep. This is a great fun little Jeep it was built back when everything was built to last and when Jeeps were tough as tanks. This Jeep has spent most of its life cruising around the back roads of Nelson county and only shows 90,000 miles on the speedometer, it was modified in the mid-50s and a homemade very well-engineered hard top was added along with removable doors and heat from a mid 50s Dodge and has remained virtually the same since.

It runs and drives great and is very dependable with loads of new parts, it has new brakes, new tires, new exhaust and the carburetor was rebuilt, all of the gauges work as well as all of the lights. It shifts through the gears perfect and the four wheel drive works great too. I can’t really think of anything that it needs. This little tank has some minor rust in the rear tailgate and a few spots around the rockers but it is far from being a rust bucket it actually has a really cool look to it just like it sets the scratches, rough paint, chipped paint and small amounts of rust give it character. If you’re looking for something fun to just play around with and cruise the back roads, take up into the mountains to go camping, hunting or something fun to have around your property this would be a great Jeep.”

1946 CJ-2A Princeton, IN $1800


The seller has a sense of humor, “the body has been many colors including the ultra-atractive traffic-cone-orange rattle-can coating it now wears.


1946-cj2a-princeton-in1 1946-cj2a-princeton-in2 1946-cj2a-princeton-in3 1946-cj2a-princeton-in4

“46 cj2a serial #78498. Original color was “Picket Gray” with “Luzon Red” wheels, although the wheels have been painted black and the body has been many colors including the ultra-atractive traffic-cone-orange rattle-can coating it now wears.
This is a perfect entry level/starter jeep. This body is in really good shape. I play with these old jeeps quite a bit, and see a lot of them. This body is in better shape than most of them you see in this part of the country. Sheet metal is all original, no patches or modifications, bubba hasn’t screwed this one up. This is an excellent candidate for serious restoration. Theres still some body work is needed, the toolbox floor needs repair but is still in it (most of them are completely gone), theres one hole in passenger floorboard (above hat channel), and one under driver’s seat/fuel tank location. The engine turns over by hand, and I can source a transmission/ transfer case for added cost if needed.
Frame tag and body ser# tag match, acm is #69097. This is a good, solid jeep for someone to invest a little time into and enjoy. $1800/make offer. Thanks for looking.”
