1946 CJ-2A Lake Leelanau, MI $6500


Not a perfect body (has some floor rust), but seems in decent shape. Has Kelly hubs.


“Nice fairly solid old flat fender that runs, drives and stops. Luzon Red appears to be the original color but was repainted long ago and a little body work was done as well.
Comes with extra tranfer case and transmision and proper Carter WO carb (has a aftermrket carb that is finnicky currently installed). Converted to 12v. New tires and new battery.
It seemed approriate to add old growth Redwood planks fastened to the seats, it glows a bit I think. The key has a prevoius owners name engraved on it (Larry’s). I’ve noticed that it has two bullet holes in the body. At one point in its life it was on a yacht and was craned on and off to land and boat.
Not willing to negotiate price nor am I looking for trades. Cash only
Seroius inquires only
Only willing to let go to another enthusist.”

1946 CJ-2A Des Moines, IA $5000


Has a rear PTO. The front clip has been modified with a 3B hood, though the grille is a 2A grille that’s been raised. I’m pretty sure we saw the “red” version (bottom pic) of this for sale, but I can’t find it now. The current owner has yet to receive the title from the former owner.


“This is a running and driving project . I was told it was a 46 when I bought it . They have been saying they are working on getting a title . My kids and I are heading a different direction for a project . Has a flathead ford 8 cylinder. Feel free to message me if interested”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000.

This looks in good shape. The engine has a later model oil filter bracket, so the engine might not be original.

1946 CJ-2A Longview, WA $1800


UPDATE: Price dropped to $1800.

(05/21/2021) It’s a project.



“Motor turns freely and ran before tear down but due to carb leaking we didn’t run it long. Has lots of rust that someone doing the work themselves could fix but customer doesn’t want to dump more money than it’s worth done to fix it. Roll bar or seats are no longer available. All other still come with Jeep including data plates. Early 1946 with column shift, complete motor and drivetrain. I don’t think there’s anything else that I forgot. Floors have been patched but were done pretty crappy by just screwing metal over top of the cut out areas. It also still has fuel tank and storage box on passenger side. $2500 located in Longview Washington 98632. Edit…wheels and brakes are put back together and it is a rolling project now.”

“This Jeep was setting beside the neighbors barn at a property my son purchased. I love old Jeeps so I made him an offer. He said he had owned it for 20 years, hadn’t driven it for at least 10 years and couldn’t find the title.
Got it home, put in new spark plugs and gas and it started right up.
-It is completely original
-Flathead 4 cylinder, This is the famous L4-134 flathead engine, nicknamed “Go Devil” because of its
-T90 transmission
-twin stick transfer case
-No holes cut in dash or anywhere else.
-It needs complete tune up. plug wires, points, distributor cap, etc. and a carburetor rebuild. It runs rough.
-I put on a set of roller tires. They are good to drive around on but they don’t make it look good.
– rust in the usual places, but one of the least rusty Jeeps I have owned.
-This would make an excellent hunting rig
Again, NO TITLE”
