1946 CJ-2A Chehalis, WA No Price


This was listed at $4800, but that price has been crossed out. Perhaps the seller is taking offers? The front suspension setup is unusual. It appears a bump stop has been added to the rear of the springs, replacing the shackles. It also looks like some kind of block or wedge sits between the springs and the axle.


“Complete frame up restoration project that is very close to being finished. It came from California and is extremely solid. It was taken down to bare metal and there was not a spot of rust anywhere. A skim coat, block, primer, block seal, and painted gray. It’s a 46 CJ2A with CJ5 running gear that has overdrive so it will have no trouble running the freeway. Has a chevy 350. Lot’s of new parts. Part’s alone cost more than the asking price. I have the windshield frame and windshield for it. its painted black. I will not respond to is this still available. Located in napavine Washington. Cash only sale, no trades. First person here with cash takes it home. Change of plans…..I’ll part it out. Let me know what you need. It has a really nice suspension setup. I think I’ll keep the 350 SBC that’s in it for another project.”

1946 CJ-2A Harrisville, RI $2700


John shared this CJ-2A. It’s got some mods and is a bit rough in places.

“Selling my 1946 cj2a. Hate to sell it but I got another one which is as good as I ever hoped for this one to be. It was used as a plow jeep for many years before I bought it I’ll start with the good Runs and drives very well, engine sounds amazing. The body has many patches but the floors are solid. It has a previous registration and plates but no title. Depending on when it sells I might include a spare frame for extra. The half cab is solid and are hard to come by. It comes with a complete plow setup that I know for a fact works. Cons The frame needs a patch before I’d recommend even yard driving it. One of the rear left leaf spring mounts rotted through the frame, the last owner never told me that before driving 6 hours to buy it. The brake lines are all there, unsure if theyre even hooked up, but the brakes don’t work. It’s currently hooked up to an auxiliary gas tank in the bed but I will be including a plastic one. 2700 obo, negotiable in person only, no I’m not parting it out”

1946 CJ-2A Middleton, ID $3500


I suspect this was originally a Fresno area jeep. Note that it has a Muller frame top along with side doors (possibly Dura Doors?).


“Project truck runs but needs love. New brakes need bled. Nice seats. 283 V8 3 speed. Bought it for $3500 replaced brakes and here it sits. I will take a loss on it just to get it gone but $3500 is rock bottom firm price. Will trade for fishing boat or classic pickup truck. These Willy Jeeps are small I barely fit in it and I really would like to not be working on old trucks anymore. Would rather go fishing. I have some extra parts for it. It’s really solid old rig just shows age. Price is firm so don’t waste time offering less. Clean title in My name ready for transfer”

1950 CJ-3A & 1947 CJ-2A Hubbard, OR $2750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Wood bodies

UPDATE: Still Available.

The CJ-2A’s body is wood from a Sears & Roebuck kit. Seems we have run across one of those kits before.




“Package deal of tona of parts and three Willy’s Jeeps. One ’47 CJ2A (white) complete but half the body is a plywood kit from Sears Roebuck. No title. Engine has lots of rust but repairable with a hot tank and time. Needs work but good frame and lots of good parts, or make it run again if you want.

One ’47 CJ2A just the body have the windshield, fenders, grille, seats, tailgate, and other metal for it.

And one ’50 CJ3A complete with title runs and drives but has bad tires, no brakes, no steering (the front crossmember is busted off, planned to chassis swap with the white 2A.) Grille is unbolted as is left fender to work on car. Has new starter and new ignition parts. Runs like a top stock fuel pump even works.

Planned to use the running gear from green one, body of the tub and parts, and chassis from the white one to make one nice stock jeep easily then use the remaining parts to build the remaining parts into crawlers or something fun.

Parts include:
Engine block in good shape will need cleaned up, cranks, cams, pistons, rods, oil pans, transfer cases, I think transmission, drive shafts, radiator, tons of body metal such as hoods fenders doors windshields (including glass) tailgates, parts to put a canvas top on, basically three entire jeeps worth of parts including lots of new parts worth ~450 from Kaiser Willy’s with receipt.

May split stuff. Yes the VW stuff is for sale too.
