“1948 CJ2A; These originals are getting harder to find! Built with PRIDE by hands of the USA!!!! Complete restoration completed in 2015—original (frame, body, engine, heater, wheels, transmission, bumpers, steering wheel, shifter, etc).

The original color was gray with white wheels, similar to the color Canyon Glow which is an original WILLYS color. Some enhancements… tub dipped in lizard skin, 6 volt system to 12 volt, back seat added, “cigarette lighter” plug for phone charging, front LED turn signals (LED strips), Mastercraft tires LT225/75R16 M+S for a nicer ride. June 2020 compete engine inspection and tuneup. Replaced were head gasket (studs/nuts), thermostat housing, intake manifold, exhaust manifold (studs & nuts as well) and fluids (over $2000 spent).

Smaller hardware/parts were replaced as needed. I do have a box of some original parts replaced to include the original odometer. Tons of fun! We drive this WILLYS around the area with confidence.”

1946 CJ-2A Marion, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $13,050.

(09/29/2019) Could be worth a look.

“74 year old vehicle in great condition for it’s age has minor dings here and there but no major dents or damage to body or frame. Rust free. Needs a little TLC and can be a great winter project. Starts every time, but can be a little touchy with a one barrel carburetor. Numbers matching engine, original dash information tags included. Mostly original except basic maintenance items. Also unsure about the paint being original. Unlikely, unless the paint is very faded because research suggests the factory blue would’ve been much darker. New battery in 2019, whole fuel system replaced, fuel filter, fuel tank all done by Hubbell’s Auto Repair in Marion, IA.

Had professional welder check over undercarriage and did frame brace welding work. Factory storage bin under passenger seat was professionally refabricated and welded by same welder and he did a great job. Factory bikini top included. Originally 6V converted to 12V prior to second owner. 2 front seats, metal is original but cushion and upholstery replaced. Back seat all original. Tires and rims in good shape. Rims are to the period but probably not original.

**Please contact me with any questions. I am helping a friend sell this vehicle so it may take some time to answer your questions, please me patient and allow me time to get your question answered.**”
