Looks like an old Texas hunting jeep.


“For sale is my 1946 Willys (jeep), I have had it for years and years but has been stuck in my garage for 10 years and wants to be restored or taken to property.

1947 CJ-2A Loganton, PA $14,500


It appears to have a CJ-3A frame (no gussets).



“I am selling my 1947, restored, CJ2A to make room for another project. This is one of the nicest 72 year old CJ2A’s you will find around. Obviously there is no rust. I don’t need to sell it, I could make everything fit if I need to. Everything works except the driver side vacuum wiper that I need to look at. The engine has been rebuilt and runs amazing. These old CJ’s are getting very hard to find, especially in this condition. There has been a lot of money put into this Jeep and it shows. The frame and body tags are on it. I have used this mostly for parades and just driving the grandchildren around. I am asking $14,500 OBO. If you have thought about restoring one, you will realize how reasonable this price is.”

Both have good grill marker lights. The rolling chassis is good with good front bumper bracket, rear bar, another column shift trans, t-case, drive shafts and axles. There is no number on the chassis. I also havedraw another column shift trans and transfer case to go along with this package.

1946 CJ-2A Cleveland, OH $2800


Looks like a customized Sears hardtop, as the windows are larger than I’ve seen in other Sears tops.


“I have a 1946 jeep willys that is in rough shape. I took possession of the vehicle after it had been left in a building I purchased. I do have the title for the willys. Everything is with this willys(drive train, interior and any other bits you could think of) so it would be a great project or parts car. this willy has the inline 4 “go devil” engine in it that I have got to fire up and run. It is also sporting a hard top and doors, I am uncertain if its homemade or if it had been bought out of a catalog. It has a flat tow bar on the front of it as well as a vintage meyers plow set up and pump, this jeep will also come with the plow. Looking for $2800 or best offer also open to trades”

“Getting ready for a big move and selling a few cars. See my other listing for a 79 F150 and a 73 Landrover Series 3.

Please keep in mind this Willy’s is a 47. That makes it 71 years old if my math holds up. It was built in a totally different era and to totally different standards. Then on top of that it had a few lifetimes worth of owners.

Having said that I feel this Jeep is in overall amazing running condition, looks great, and appears to have mostly original or period correct parts.
