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.”
