“I have a 1948 CJ2A with rear PTO. It’s all restored to original. The restoration was done roughly 15 years ago but looks like it was done less than that. This was all done recently as it sat for so long: New fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, condenser, oil lines, fuel pump to carb line, carb was completely rebuilt, new master cylinder, bell and crank for the steering. I’m sure I’m missing a few things. Have new wheel cylinders but haven’t installed them. Comes with tire chains, a bucket of carbs (3-4) a crate of other parts and a hard cab that needs to be finished. Runs and drives. $18,500. Open to trades”

Way too much to list. Just give me a call.
NO TITLE. BILL OF SALE.
There is a very easy, legit, and fully legal way to obtain title for this jeep. If you’re interested, I’ll gladly tell you how.

A brief rundown about this jeep:

It sat in a while in a field at the original owner’s property. I don’t know exactly how long. I was told it was in a shed.
It was VERY not running when I got it.
There was very clearly some work work/maintenance done to it however..
What I have done over the past 2 years:
I was going to make this into a plow vehicle, but have decided to stick with my atv.

“Very cool 1946 Jeep CJ2A. This was sitting in a field for quite some time. The owner I bought it from did not title the jeep. The previous owner could not locate the title. So you will need to get a bonded title. I had multiple offers on the way home when picking it up. Will have a bill of sale..

I have shown this jeep to a serious collector and he said this is the kind of jeep he looks for. It’s virtually un molested. It does have rust in the floor under the tank and where the tool box is on passenger side. I bought a new tank and sending unit for it and gas cap. It also has a new repair manual.

The previous owner drove it around for me but did so without working brakes. He used a retro fitted fuel can to make it work. Engine ran rough probably needs carburetor cleaned out real good. I believe the brakes could be bleed. Not sure of their condition. Has to original style seats. This would make a great little project. These thing are going for crazy money and It has the Ford type head. Let me know it your interested and I’m not really gonna budge on price. Other motor shown in pic is not included. I just had it running for a short time however the carburetor started leaking so it will need rebuilt.”

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.

“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”
