1948 CJ-2A Greensburg, PA $20,000


I’m guessing this was priced based on NADA. Still, it appears to be in good condition. Note the pipe along the passenger side fender. Any thoughts on why that is there? It does not appear to be related to the heater.


“Selling grandpa’s Jeep. No use for it. Good running condition. Includes a rear PTO, back bench seat, and the matching canvas top (with doors). The brush-hog that was used with his Jeep is also available for sale. It is registered and has a title.”

Year? CJ-2A Eastern CT $400


Seller will trade or sell for $400.



“Willys CJ2A parts Jeep. Not a picked thru pile of parts. This is a 80% complete Jeep (no tub) that I bought as a restoration project but then found a better candidate. The engine freely rotates and the jeep includes all major components (axles, transmission, gauges, etc…)

TRADE for a usable set of 5 Willy’s wheels and tires (you’ll get the wheels and tires that are on this Jeep).

Or, I’ll take 5 useable tires (without the rims), but you’ll have to remove the old wheels off the Jeep and leave them.

Or, $400 for everything (not including the wheels).

Or, come at me with a reasonable trade offer and I just might say yes (but, no, I don’t want your Ferrari so don’t even try).”

“Mechanically sound 1948 Jeep Willy’s.
I’ve done quit a bit of work on this Jeep. It does smoke and will need an engine rebuild. I changed the head gasket a while back and it was .030 over. It does have another rebuild in it. I did add an independent brake boost so this Jeep actually stops.

This Jeep has a title and has good tags thru 2020. This is rare. Liability insurance is $13 a month. Very cheap to own and work on.

Serious inquires only. If you don’t know how to work on vehicles this is not for you. This is a fun second vehicle to run around the neighborhood in. This is a standard and top speed is around 50mph. Not a freeway vehicle.”
