1946 CJ-2A Tulsa, OK $5000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/12/2020) This jeep has undergone some modifications. The body has been cut in places and patched in others. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this jeep is the hood (aftermarket?), which is mounted at an angle with the back up high, presumably to fit the Chevy 350.

I am selling a very nice 1946 Jeep Willys-Overland CJ-2A, twin stick 4×4, manual, 3 speed. It has had a frame-off restoration. No rust on the cab. VERY STURDY, no rusted through portions. Nice, thick paint. The paint is pretty good overall, but has scratches and imperfections. The has been swapped for a Chevy 350 with true dual exhaust with cherry bombs (Sounds good, not obnoxiously loud). It starts easily, runs great, has tons of power, and drives well both offroad and street. The transmission was pulled from a CJ-2A 6 cylinder, and the remaining drive train and axles are all original to the vehicle. The passenger seat flips up. The windshield folds down. The lights work.

“So it’s time for me to sell my favorite toy. I’ve had this little red Jeep for a couple years now and it’s been a blast. The 78 Buick V6 is a beast in such a little vehicle. The Dana axles are strong and make this thing fun to run on any street or trail. The 33” tires aren’t huge but they’re no rinky dink spares either. The chrome wheels make this thing at home at any hot rod meet up or rigs and coffee too.

It’s got an original Warn 8274 winch with a steel cable. People have offered me a grand just for that, but I won’t separate them. It’s got a flat tow set up bolted on, you can leave it on or remove it quickly. I’ll also include my Willys Tonka truck with it. I bought it from an antique toy seller just to keep these together, always thought it was a cool little deal. Continue reading

(08/17/2020) Looks like an old school build. It’s listed as a ‘1948 CJ-3A’. I wonder what “rewired Warn hubs” means.
