“1946 Willys Jeep. This Jeep only has 11,488 miles since being restored. It’s in excellent condition and a lot of fun to drive. It has a GM V-6 engine, 3 speed manual transmission and a Ramsey Winch. This Jeep has been kept in a climate controlled garage since 1990. Just had the carburetor rebuilt, a new fuel pump installed, the radiator drained with new antifreeze installed, a complete tune up and new Goodyear Wrangler tires installed on mag wheels with a matching spare. The body is in very good shape with no rust and the paint is a 9 out of 10. All lights work including blinkers and the windshield wipers work. This thing will go anywhere you want to go and get you back! It has a 3 speed manual transmission with hi-low range, 2wheel drive-4 wheel drive selector and PTO engage shifter. I have an aluminum top that was custom made for it that is not pictured but comes with it. It runs very good and shifts smoothly. I have the title in hand. Asking $15,500. Located a few miles south of Tyler in Whitehouse.”

1946 CJ-2A Washoe Valley, NV $7500


This is part of an estate sale, though unclear why the person listing this for sale put the jeep in his/her name.


1946-cj2a-washoevalley-nv-1 1946-cj2a-washoevalley-nv-2 1946-cj2a-washoevalley-nv-3 1946-cj2a-washoevalley-nv-4

“This is a REBUILT 1946 Willys CJ2 per the title. I have clear title.
This is part of an estate sale, and not my own personal vehicle. I was told that it needs a starter, but it does run outside of that. I am only repeating what I’ve been told by the family. The mileage has not been verified. The Jeep is a cream/tan in color. There is not hard top or soft top and it has been sitting outside exposed to the elements with no cover. I cannot make any statements to how the Jeep or its components runs or operates.

It is your responsibility that either you or your mechanic inspect the vehicle to verify the specifics you are seeking out of this vehicle.

It is located at the estate property in Washoe Valley, NV and can be seen by appointment only. Please message Brandy with multiple times you are available to meet. Upon confirmation of the land owner’s availability, then I will confirm with you a meeting time/date.”

1947 CJ-2A Springfield, OR $3000


UPDATE: Still Available.

Not sure how much value is here. The seller indicates there is a 3 Point Hitch, but I see no pics of one nor do I see a rear PTO gearbox (maybe seller meant ‘was’ equipped?). It does have something unusual sticking out the back. I can’t make sense of it.

“Very Very Rare.
This 1947 Willys Jeep was used Off Road. It’s equipt with a factory 3 point hitch in the rear and a factory hydraulic ram for a front blade.

The flathead L134 engine is full of water. The spark plugs disappeared
do to water on the cylinder head.

No title, never had a heater, rusty floors. It’s still 6 volt. The hydraulic pump is gone.

A new body is available for $2,400.

Adapters for a 4.3 Chevy are less than $500.

These Jeeps are called Agrijeeps.
This jeep with a new body and rebuilt engine would be worth a great deal.

I will consider offers on the
Ag components. Not cheap! The Willys is very straight and deserves a 2nd chance. Not a ding in it.
It has a bunch of rare parts. The entire front sheet metal is really nice.”

This a totally restored Jeep the original owner invested over $30,000 everything is rebuilt are replaced. You have to see it to believe it. All original drive train with a add on overdrive, that adds 10% to top end. That’s the extra stick you see in the floor with the 4 wheel drive. It has a new body, that wasn’t prepped right and the paint is peeling in some places. I have all the receipts pictures of a the rebuild. New springs tires brake steering box and all steering linkage new steering wheel seats gas tank total drive train rebuilt new wring 12 volt new radiator. New top and doors, electronic ing.
I hate to sell it but I’m getting to old to get in and out of it. I learned to drive on a 1948 on the farm Dad traded the 48 for a 1952 which he kept until 1967. Needless to say this is memory lane for me, when I saw it I had to have it. I hope whoever gets it has the same thrill.
I have recently install the blocks on hood for the wind shield when it is layed down.”

“The term barn find gets used a lot but this is actually a barn find. I pulled it out of a barn in Wilton. It’s been sitting in there since 1985 when the guy that built it died of a heart attack. He built it in the early 80s to be the fastest jeep at Pismo. I bought it from his widow. It has a Corvette 327 and Muncie four-speed out of a 67 Corvette that his buddy wrecked. Dana 18 transfer case and warn overdrive. I believe the axles are original. The Vin verification has been done and I have a new non opped pink slip in hand. The body is mostly straight with a few small dents and dings. No Bondo that I’m aware of and no rust holes. It does not run but the motor will turn over. It has been sitting for 35+ years so everything will need to be gone through before it can be driven. I love this thing and I don’t really want to sell it but I have too many projects that need my attention”
