1947 CJ-2A Fullerton, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500. This was previously listed in Irvine.

Pics of this one floated around Facebook. I think I also posted it on ewillys, but can’t find it at the moment. From the pics, it looks like there was some good work done on this.





“Very cool Willy’s Jeep all original drivetrain does not run. It looks like the cowl and windshield were grafted from a Willy’s wagon, and the steel cab is all one piece. Probably not a prototype vehicle or a relative to the CJ4, but a cool “missing link” CJ2a built with awesome craftsmanship 40+ years ago. Possibly a non-US made Jeep wagonette. Suicide doors latch. Great patina. This will be the coolest Jeep at Easter Jeep safari.”

1948 CJ-2A Cypress, CA $10,900


UPDATE: Price dropped to $10,900.

(08/22/2019) For some reason, the ignition switch was dropped down a few inches. It could use a bumper, some rubber under the windshield, and some hood blocks. Maybe the pics were taken before it was completed?

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ2A. I bought it a couple years ago as a fun toy. It was beautifully restored by the previous owner. It is definitely a great little vehicle and it gets lots of looks, thumbs up and honks (the good kind). I truly just don’t have time to drive it and can use the extra space. It’s time to move it along to someone that will actually have time to enjoy it. Everything is mechanically sound. It starts up right away and runs better than most of my other classic cars. Truly a great car to just get in and drive. I typically ran most of my local errands in it because it’s fun to tool around in and a cake walk to park. Please let me know if you have any questions, I’m definitely not an expert on these but I will help in any way I can. I’m also happy to send any specific pictures you might want. Thanks for looking!

Just paid the registration, good through October 2020
Title in hand and in my name

P.S. I will not respond to low ball offers. I’m in no rush to sell. I’m happy to continue running errands in it =)”
