1948 CJ-2A Jacksonville, NC $2500

Taar’s selling her father’s CJ-2A. It’s seen some repairs and doesn’t run at the moment. Unclear if the engine spins or not. You can email her at tara.dicken21 @ gmail.com (remove spaces around the @).

“My father recently passed away and left me with several vehicles I am now trying to find homes for. One if these is a 1946 jeep cj3a with a title. It’s not in good shape at all as it has been outside in a barn. Would love for it to go to a good home.”

1948 CJ-2A with Mahl Loader at Bring-A-Trailer Auction

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features • TAGS: , , .

Glenn spotted this rare and restored Mahl Loader and CJ-2A. There are a ton of detail photos at BaT’s auction page. Note that the serial number used for the title is an engine number and not the original serial number. So, a buyer might want to consider that it your state is extra picky.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1948-willys-cj-2a-18/

“This 1948 Willys CJ-2A is powered by a 134ci Go-Devil inline-four paired with a three-speed manual transmission and is fitted with a MAHL Jeep Loader attachment produced by Standard Iron & Wire Works Inc. of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pair was acquired by the seller around 2010 and subsequently refurbished before installation of the loader in 2016. The truck is finished in black over green vinyl and features white-painted 16″  steel wheels, a fold-flat windshield, a dual-range transfer case, a power take-off unit, a Gre-Sen hydraulic pump, and cab-mounted hydraulic controls. This CJ-2A and Jeep Loader are now offered with an award, articles about the project, and a clean Minnesota title in the name of the seller’s company…..

The factory chassis tag has been replaced with a reproduction unit that shows a blank serial number, and the seller is unable to locate the chassis number on the vehicle itself. The last six digits of the VIN on the title—J172095—are consistent with that of a 1948 Willys CJ-2A.”

Here is a video:

“I am selling a 1947 Willys CJ2A Jeep. As you probably know, this is the first generation post war civilian Jeep. I bought three of these and am restoring the second one, and have decided to sell this one off. As seen in the pictures, I have a very good, usable front clip for this Jeep, two T-90 transmissions a Dana 18 transfer case and a Dana 44 rear axle (an upgrade if you choose to use it).

The main tub, tailgate and seat frames will need to be replaced. I have purchased two repo Jeep bodies and they work out very well (happy to help you with this process if you decide to buy a new body). Or, you may find a used tub that could be used. As I mentioned, I have restored two of these and have lots of info and resources for parts, etc. I developed a four page spreadsheet just to document the hardware required and where it is used.

“I have a 1947 CJ2A 350 small block and 4 speed sm465 2wd project in the works. The mounts are all welded in and I many of the parts. I have body panels that need repair as well. Decent fenders grille and windshield. I’m looking for trade for very small hard shelled camp trailer like a scamp or similar or a Harley, any year or V-twin model also interested in a Kawasaki Drifter made to look like an Indian (either motor is ok).
Let me know what you have, basket cases are fine too. Preferably an 84 or newer but I’m willing to see what’s out there.
Big items the jeep needs is to complete the steering setup and get a 2wd DJ front axle(I found one) I will get it and pass it along with the trade. I have brand new bearing and pistons in the 350 and bought used recent rebuild heads, may need to be taken apart and put together again same parts, mostly there. Big AMC 20 rear axle with 11” brakes, have a dual hydraulic master cylinder and a set of swing pedals. The frame was sandblasted. Has new tires but very hard as load rating is high. Im sure this would be fun when completed.
I value it between 2500 and 3500 (with front axle) and will keep working on it.”
