1950 CJ-3A & 1947 CJ-2A Hubbard, OR $2750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Wood bodies

UPDATE: Still Available.

The CJ-2A’s body is wood from a Sears & Roebuck kit. Seems we have run across one of those kits before.




“Package deal of tona of parts and three Willy’s Jeeps. One ’47 CJ2A (white) complete but half the body is a plywood kit from Sears Roebuck. No title. Engine has lots of rust but repairable with a hot tank and time. Needs work but good frame and lots of good parts, or make it run again if you want.

One ’47 CJ2A just the body have the windshield, fenders, grille, seats, tailgate, and other metal for it.

And one ’50 CJ3A complete with title runs and drives but has bad tires, no brakes, no steering (the front crossmember is busted off, planned to chassis swap with the white 2A.) Grille is unbolted as is left fender to work on car. Has new starter and new ignition parts. Runs like a top stock fuel pump even works.

Planned to use the running gear from green one, body of the tub and parts, and chassis from the white one to make one nice stock jeep easily then use the remaining parts to build the remaining parts into crawlers or something fun.

Parts include:
Engine block in good shape will need cleaned up, cranks, cams, pistons, rods, oil pans, transfer cases, I think transmission, drive shafts, radiator, tons of body metal such as hoods fenders doors windshields (including glass) tailgates, parts to put a canvas top on, basically three entire jeeps worth of parts including lots of new parts worth ~450 from Kaiser Willy’s with receipt.

May split stuff. Yes the VW stuff is for sale too.

“The good= The jeep runs and moves, all the lights work (including blinkers), frame is solid. New parts= radiator, alternator (12v system), brake lines, brake master cylinder, gas tank, seat frame, light switch Engine isn’t original. Currently has the f head hurricane four cylinder engine. Hood doesn’t clear carburetor so that’s why the hood is off.

The bad=Floor has rust holes and a spot that someone cut out above transmission, will probably need new brake pads and drums all the way around, there is pressure at brake pedal but brakes dont work (pistons could also be stuck), transmission needs a new tail shaft seal, and exhaust needs work. Make me an offer that wouldn’t surprise your mother”
