1946 CJ-2A Marcola, OR $1250


It’s a mix of parts.


“Old Jeep that has had some alterations. Someone put a 350 v8 in it with a turbo 350 trans behind it. They also removed the transfer case so it’s a 2wd. Also they put a Toyota axle on the rear. When I bought it I saw it running and driving. It’s not hooked up to fuel or has a battery but it shouldn’t take a lot for it to run. I was going to drop it and make a tire roasting rat Rod Jeep but I don’t have time or money to finish it. No low ballers cash only. Thanks!!”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500

(11/19/2018) Looks in good shape. It lacks the front frame gussets for some reason.


“This Jeep was completely rebuilt 10 years ago with a frame off restoration. Rebuilt original 4 cyl motor and transmission, new tub, new wiring, new Firestone military NDT tires, many new or reconditioned parts. My goal was to return it to as near new condition as possible, and it’s been continuously garaged and driven just 1100 miles since the restoration. This is as close as you will get to owning a new, 1947 Willys CJ 2A and is nothing but fun to drive. I’d like to see it go to a good home”

(03/09/2017) “Selling my 1947 CJ-2A. $9500. Located in Traverse City, MI. Could deliver.
This is a really well cared for, well preserved, near original, unmolested 1947 Willys CJ-2A. This Jeep is not a mint, off-the-assembly-line restoration with new body or panels or filler. Rather my restoration approach was to maintain the history of this jeep by preserving it in its current state, yet making it attractive, safe, and reliable, but still near original condition. This was a farm jeep from Crookston, MN (unverified) and the intent was for that character and history to remain preserved. I’ve owned this jeep for about 8 years. Last major work on it was 5 years ago. Stored indoors.

General notes:
Clean/clear PA title with antique plate.
I believe all numbers match (frame, body, engine) but would need to double check and photograph for proof.
Odometer displays 3x,xxx miles and works
Spent its life as a farm jeep in Crookston, Minnesota (unverified story from seller).
This jeep was a barn find from a widow. Her husband purchased it from the farm and stuck it in his barn in Grand Rapids, MN and left it covered, he then passed years later and the wife decided to sell. Lucky me to find it.
Only body rust holes came from some of the channels that contained wood supports but other than some holes, there is no rot, frame is solid, and there’s no indication it ever saw a road with salt. Two other holes in floor of tub were torched out, likely from the farmer to access the PTO or service/grease drive lines easier. This is part of the character and history I wanted to maintain.
When cleaning it up, I removed corn stalks from the frame, so it was truly a working farm truck.
Near all original preservation with a few safety and convenience upgrades. All components removed come with the jeep as well (e.g., 9” breaks)
