Year? CJ-3A? Dripping Springs, TX $500


Listed as as 1946 Cj-2A, it looks more like a CJ-3A. If the top only has surface rust, then there could be value here.

CJ-2A Body Sulphur, LA $500

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, CJ-2A, Parts

UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/16/2019) This body has had lots of work done to it.


cj2a-sulphur-tx1 cj2a-sulphur-tx2 cj2a-sulphur-tx3

“During a frame off restoration we realized the body we have does not match the frame. The body (tub, fenders, hood, front and rear bumper) is for a ’48 vintage CJ-2A. Fenders and hood are in excellent shape. Hood has a customized box that was installed to accommodate the non-stock (for the body) engine. Tub is in average condition. Body mount channels on the bottom have some wastage and will need to be replaced. The storage bin under the passenger seat is missing. Otherwise, repairs have been made to previous wastage. We need to make room for the new body.
Entire body was on an operational chassis and was driven. As-is, it is functional. Restoration will require attention in the above areas.
I also have the front grill and windshield. Am not sure if I’m going to repurpose those but if not, they will be included with this body.”

1948 CJ-2A Provo, UT $3500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/30/2019) Might be a good price. Will need some work.


“1948 Willy’s. 4000 OBO
Overall, pretty impressive for a 71 year old vehicle. Starts, runs, and drives. I’ve taken it in multiple long drives.
With that said, there’s a few thing that need attention. The clutch, although it works, makes a sound. I bought all new clutch parts but haven’t installed. Throw out bearing, forks, cables, clutch, etc.
The brakes recently stopped working and I haven’t had time to look at it. Up until very recently they worked.
One of the pictures shows the exhaust manifold which smokes a little bit when you first start it.
I also have a newly rebuilt carter carb that’s original but there’s an aftermarket one in there now. It works fine but I wanted original. So I’d send you with the new clutch and carb.
I know it’s not perfect but a great Jeep that just needs some attention I don’t have time for.”

1948 CJ-2A St. George, UT $5100


UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/13/2019) Body exterior has been body-lined.



“1948 Willy’s CJ2a Jeep. The entire exterior has been rhino lined so it will last forever. The underside has been painted with a truck bed liner for protection as well. New larger gas tank has been added as well as plastics race seats. New wiring harness has been added along with LED tail lights.
The Jeep runs and drives but could use some general upkeep and maintenance. Very easy to work on as there are obviously no computers or major electronics to deal with. Perfect for someone who is just starting to work on cars. This Jeep was my granddads and I have loved making it mine, but it’s time to move to a new project. This Jeep is sold as is and buyers will be required to sign a bill of sale”

“Fully restored 1948 Willys Jeep for sale. The vehicle is currently in long-term storage and can be viewed upon request. Restored by an experienced classic car enthusiast who also restored two Model As, a Packard, and a REO Flying Cloud.

Has been in covered storage since that time, so may need a minor tune-up.

Being sold by the current owner and titleholder. Title can be transferred immediately upon payment. Purchase must transport from the storage unit.”
