1945 VEC CJ-2A Concord, CA $3800


This is an unusual item. Check out the adapter added to the rear of the intermediate transfercase shaft. Anyone recognize what that is?

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3500.

“1947 Willys CJ2A Jeep. Has the Go Devil 4 cylinder engine. Engine turns over. Doesn’t run but with a little work I’m sure it would. Manual 3 speed transmission. The steering box is really stiff, Its a simple box and will probably need torn apart and rebuilt. It has the really hard to find full cab. I have the passenger side window in the back that is intact. Just needs put back in. Also has a snow plow that is powered by the PTO on the Jeep. Clean Idaho title in hand. This Jeep is a project but they are hard to find this complete and in this condition. Its a great base for a restoration. That was my plan but I have too many projects and no time as it is. $4500 OBO. Let me know if you have any other questions!”

1946? Flattie/Suzuki St. George, UT $2200


The body looks to be a modified replacement body (on a Suzuki chassis). If you need a body that you plan to modify anyway, this might be worth a look.

It has Samari Axles with 31 inch Super Swamper tires. There is no engine. Clean title. This would make a great project WWII Jeep!”
