“If this is posted, yes it’s still available. I will no longer respond to the 30-40 people per day asking that question.

A literal barn-find 1947 CJ2A. Good title in hand. Mostly complete and in unmolested condition. Does NOT run. Bring a trailer and cash, or ask about possibly delivering (for a fee). Needs restoration.

Our business is restoring WWII and classic Jeeps. We simply have too many projects, so we’re letting this one go to free up some space. Does NOT run. NEEDS restoration. HAS title. PROJECT Jeep”

“Very Early Civilian model CJ2A. If this ad is still up it’s still for sale. Ser#18711, ’46 column shift. The frame, drivetrain, and body have been primered. This jeep does not have an engine. The body has had some bad spots cut out and patch panels made. The panels fit great but are not welded in. You can weld in these panels, or buy reproductions and use them depending on how precise of a restoration you want to do. This is a great restoration candidate, still has the column shifter and transmission. I do have other parts available for this project.”

“I have a 1948 Willys Jeep for sale. It’s a 4×4 and can’t goes through anything. Tires are brand new and runs and drives. Lots of new parts on it and just got tuned up. Freshly painted. Comes with gas can and flag.

I’ve had it at my deer lease and love it. Only selling because I have now have a smaller deer lease and don’t use it. It runs and drives great and I can send a video of me driving up a rocky hill from this week.

The only bad thing is the brakes are giving me trouble right now and don’t always work. Not sure what’s wrong but brakes are very affordable and easy to work on. I just haven’t had time to mess with it. Also it does not have a title because they were military issued. But comes with bill of sale and can get title easily.”

“I have a 1946 Willys CJ2A with a mild lift, 33” tires, full roll cage, and a ford 302 engine. I just went through the engine with my boys as a “teaching experience”. We put ported heads, new Summit torquer cam (0-5000), new lifters, new timing chain/gears, roller rockers, valve covers, and a new Edelbrock carburetor. The bottom end is bored .40 over with flat top pistons etc etc etc. What we learned is that a CJ2A can pop wheelies!!

That was not the lesson I was trying to teach my 13 and 15 year old so the “death trap” needs to go to someone with a more developed frontal lobe than my boys. I just put new front brakes (11″ drums) on it including rubber lines, slaves, and pads. It has the original 3 speed trans which pops out of 2nd when coasting sometimes. I do have some new polaris seats that go with the jeep. I also have a soft top that looks good but I have never put it on. There is a new aluminum radiator, fan, dual chamber brake master, etc etc etc.

It is a lot of Jeep for the money but someone needs to bleed the rear brakes, and tinker with it a bit. I have it set so only the primaries open on the carb. Adjust them at your own risk. The engine idles perfectly smoothe but has a ton of power for a jeep this size. $4500 obo Body is very straight but has some paint peeling on the hood. Very little rust or corrosion.”
