Bill shared this project. The seller notes this is “the best jeep you will find”. You be the judge. The tub has been modified with a script back. There are additional mods, such as the front springs being reversed. Strangely, this rig was included in this Hemmings write-up.

1946 CJ-2A Portland, ME $9900


Glenn shared this jeep with a VEC CJ-2A body. Note the frame is described as “perfect” even though it appears modified at the front frame rails and, I suspect as a cheap lift, the rear spring hanger on the front springs has been modified.


“Almost completely rebuilt with a Jeep Dauntless V6. Frame is perfect, I’m trying to thin out my Jeep collection. It’s in primer black and is considered an early Jeep. Email only, no trades and cash only.”

1948 CJ-2A Castle Rock, WA $5200


UPDATE: Price dropped to $5200.

Pics include both with and without tires, so it’s unclear to me the actual status of the jeep. I’m assuming if it drive, that the tires are attached.

1948 CJ-2A Glenburn, ME $9500


The body has had some bodywork, but is supposed to run. It has a Ford GPW block that was rebuilt in Germany.


1948-cj2a-glenburn-me-2 1948-cj2a-glenburn-me-3 1948-cj2a-glenburn-me-4

“1948 Willys CJ2A, powered by a “Go Devil” L134 4 cylinder flathead engine. 3speed T90 transmission and Dana 18 transfer case. Jeep runs and drives good, shifts through all the gears and 4wd works in high and low range. The brake shoes and wheel cylinders were recently replaced, including the brake shoes on the back of the transfer case. Complete new exhaust from the manifold back.

There is evidence the jeep has had body work during its lifetime, the body is very solid with no major rust. In my opinion the jeep has a killer look and I would run it as is. Tires all hold air, due to age and sidewall cracking I would replace them before running this any distance in the road.

According to the data tag on the side of the engine it was rebuilt at Karlsfeld Ordnance Depot outside Munich Germany in 1953. The engine runs extremely well and has the best oil pressure I have seen on a L134. The block I’m told is a late WWII block and has a Ford GPW head on it. Priced below market value at $9,500”

1948 CJ-2A Bristol, RI $3800


Runs with newer engine, but bodybuilding needs work.


“1948 Willys CJ2A. Pros: Running and driving with a gm inline 6. Frame in good shape. Hood, Windshield, front fenders and frame all in good shape. Clean New Jersey title.

Cons: Needs new floor. You can buy a completely new tub easily and have a perfect jeep. No fuel tank, no floor, no seats.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/28/2022) It runs and drives.


“Runs and drives well. Does over 50mph. The previous owner had this a long time and did many modifications. It has a Dana 44 narrow track rear axle. I believe the front is upgraded also. Saginaw steering setup. The motor is an early 70s 2.0 Ford. The floor has been patched numerous times. Either way it’s a drivable 2a with paperwork and I’m firm on the price.
