Though it has the driver side spare tire mount, I do not believe this was a lefty. It appears the original holes for the front bow holder are still there.

1946 CJ-2A “Nellybelle II” Cave Creek, AZ $10,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/22/2019) This was originally for sale in 2010.


“This 1946 CJ-2A is an exact replica of the Jeep Nellybelle used in the Roy Rogers’ TV Show of the 1950’s. It was commissioned by Roy Jr., aka Dusty Rogers. It was used at the Roy Rogers Museum for the children to climb into so that the original Nellybelle would not get all that “abuse”. We have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as pictures we took with Dusty and his son, Dustin. We are also friends with the fine gentleman who built this jeep for Dusty.

It runs well, smokes a little (it’s old enough and Dusty said it always smoked).”

1948 CJ-2A Merrill, WI $5000


UPDATE: Still Available

(04/12/2018) Has fiberglass body.


“This is a 1948 CJ2A with a fiberglass body, it has a Three speed with overdrive and a 1967 CJ5 V6. The motor is a 225 dauntless. With the over drive and V6 you can cruise at 60 but drives a bit steadier at 50. Plenty of power. I put new tires, new coil,new shocks and bunch seals and gaskets. I had pulled the motor and transmission to replace gaskets and seals. I still have a few leaks, I have an exhaust leak and some blow by. I also put new drums and pads, replaced the master cylinder and replaced some of the older break lines. It is titled a 1948 and all the parts I ordered came correct. Haveing the overdrive allows you to stay in 2nd in town and the overdrive shifts smooth as silk. Fun to drive I am just thinking of going b ack to two wheels. The speedo cable was broke when I bought it and I replaced it. I have no,idea of the real milage”

1947 CJ-2A Redding, CT $1100


UPDATE: Price dropped to $1100

(05/08/2019) Lots of work needed.


1947-cj2a-redding-ct20 1947-cj2a-redding-ct21 1947-cj2a-redding-ct2

“Mostly complete. Will need a complete restoration or would make a good parts vehicle to complete a restoration already in progress. It has frame rust on divers side but it could be repaired. The transmission moves freely. The motor is in unknown condition and will not turn. At one time this jeep was in a forestry department (shield and numbers visible). What is shown in pictures is all that is available & reflect condition.

I have kept this jeep for 4 years and have not had time to restore her. $1,500 cash – I am not flexible on price and am not looking for a nostalgic conversation. Please only contact me if you are seriously interested, I know this Jeep will move quickly. 203-two4six-99two8 – mobile. I have paperwork but no title since its an antique car, can provide a bill of sale.”
