“I’m currently working on a hand built rock buggy that started life as a 1946 Willys flatfender Jeep. I’m still working on it when time allows but I’m willing to let it go if someone wants to make a decent offer. This project is still a long way from being finished but the chassis is fully welded, suspension is complete minus shock mounts, drivetrain is positioned, engine accessories in place, radiator mount half finished, etc. A lot of tube work, body work, all the small details, and finishing work are still needed. You could say it’s basically a good rolling chassis.

100% of the work up to this point has been done by me over the last several years. The frame is 2x4x0.125 box tubing and the round tube is mostly 1.5×0.120 DOM. The 2” roll cage tubing is HREW I believe. Motor mounts, radiator mounts, most of the suspension link mounts are hand made since I didn’t want to compromise with pre-fab stuff.

“Selling my 47 Willys CJ2a bought it a few years ago as a project. I had the carburetor rebuilt, got it running all new plugs, wires, filters, fluids etc. have gone through the brakes and went through all the 12 V wiring. It does run and drive but needs a lot of work as it is 71 years old and in mostly original condition body is very rough tires are great I also have an extra military tub that can go with it for the asking price.

“This Jeep would be great for the deer lease or pasture riding. That’s what we were using it for. We drove it into the barn 4 years ago to replace the clutch fork and life got busy and we haven’t touched it since. I’m sure it needs a new battery and probably tires. It does need a clutch fork since we never replaced it. It’s been barn kept”

UPDATE: This is the original patent for the Jeep-a-Loader! The application was first filed on February 07, 1955, by the Minneapolis Freeman Mfg, Co. (Out of Minneapolis??). I am guessing that the Jeep-A-Loader Corporation was a subsidiary or offshoot from the above parent company. The drawing shows that the Jeep-A-Loader was designed to fit over a CJ-3B (perhaps a CJ-5 as well), though the only one I’ve seen documented is fitted on a CJ-3A.

The filing date likely means this was manufactured around 1955, plus or minus a year. The patent was granted February 11, 1958.

This photo is from 2009:

From June 2008:  A reader named Ed sent me some pics of a rare find he just purchased:  A front end loader for a jeep from a manufacturer called Jeep-a-Loader.   The serial number is 1001. The hydraulics system is powered by a Hy-lo hydraulic pump, which has been used to power other Willys devices.  You can see an example of a Hy-lo pump here and here.  Here are some pics below.

1946 CJ-2A “Nellybelle II” Cave Creek, AZ $15,000


This was originally for sale in 2010.


“This 1946 CJ-2A is an exact replica of the Jeep Nellybelle used in the Roy Rogers’ TV Show of the 1950’s. It was commissioned by Roy Jr., aka Dusty Rogers. It was used at the Roy Rogers Museum for the children to climb into so that the original Nellybelle would not get all that “abuse”. We have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as pictures we took with Dusty and his son, Dustin. We are also friends with the fine gentleman who built this jeep for Dusty.

It runs well, smokes a little (it’s old enough and Dusty said it always smoked).”

“The Jeep has never undergone a full restoration, but Willys America in Sonoma County worked on it to improve safety and drivability. Some of the engine and body work include new, replaced, or repaired components, such as wiring harness and cable, leaf springs, shocks, 12V system, fuel tank, clutch, hoses, brakes, fuel tank, and many more components. Receipts available for inspection. The jeep has several dents, scrapes, and rust spots. The windshield wipers do not work. There is no top. It is not a show vehicle, although fun to drive. I garage it in my hometown of Long Beach (Bluff Park), CA. Clear title”

1948 Cj-2A Colorado Springs, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

“This old Jeep is a consignment unit, so I do not have a personal feel for the unit. It seems to be in very good condition, overall. It has the flat head 4-cylinder engine, and the owner states that it has a new clutch. The Jeep runs and drives good. The snow blade goes up and down with the winch. Manual angle adjust. The owner set the price, and I think he is pretty firm on it. If a cool old CJ2A is something you can use, this one might fit the bill.”
