“Selling the 1946 CJ2-A I bought for hunting last fall! Purchased with big dreams and aspirations for it but, they came up short. Unfortunately this is awful to house 5 people to beat around in the sticks. It runs like a dream and, is super fun to drive. It looks like it’s 75 years old but, is sound and has lots of miles left in it. I had it rewired and tuned last October at D&B auto by, Don Massey. I had he tires and rims put on right after I bought. I’m 6k into rims, tires and, wiring. I bought it for 5k. I feel like 10,000.00 is a pretty fair asking price. Comes with the original Top as seen in the pictures or, feel the wind whip Your hair when you pop the top and put the original half Willy’s windshield on”

1947 CJ-2A Shirley, MA $5500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $5550.

(05/13/2021) This has an old NH registration, but no title, so sold bill-of-sale.






“Willys CJ-2A serial number puts it from 1946. Have a bunch of new parts to go with it and two original fenders that are in better condition than what were on it. Was running, Plan was to reseal engine and make it a military replica, but had a new kid, so projects all took a backseat. Rather have this go to someone who use it vs it sitting here for years till I can finish restoring it. Hood and fenders and radiator are off, where I was went I ran out of time. Pulled the head to inspect valves and cylinders, look great. No idea why the listing say automatic transmission, obviously a standard, but no option to change it. As for trades looking for quality bench top lathe and or milling machine. also on the lookout for 6′ brush hog for the tractor or a good wood splitter. or if you have a offer doesn’t hurt to ask. Will be on bill of sales, has old registration from previous owner when it was played in NH.”

(09/21/2020) Here’s a utilitarian rig.


“50’s military Jeep converted to a plow rig and grader. Has power up and down grader blade on rear of Jeep. Plow on front , hydraulic up and down. No turn pistons on at the moment but the lines are there to install. Plowed twice with Jeep. It’s a beast. Took in trade. The guy I traded with said he noticed a clicking noise in front end. Removed cover and said one tooth missing from ring gear. I haven’t been into it to see what is going on. I plowed with it in 4×4 and it was fine. Needs 4 glow plugs installed which I have. It’s a diesel. Motor is a 4 cylinder Ford Has a roll cage. Cool rig for a camp or farm. Well built. Firm on price. Thanks for looking. Runs excellent. Has small fuel leak on very top of injector pump. O-ring on top shaft. Easy fix for someone who is mechanical. I have a plow truck. Just don’t need this. Come check it out.4 new tires. Will consider a trade for a decent quad with plow”

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.”
