“Hi there, for sale is my 1947 Willy’s Overland CJ2A. This little jeep has been an awesome vehicle, and doesn’t need much. It has the F-Head Hurricane Willy’s engine that was torn apart and completely gone through, along with the transmission and transfer case. Gaskets and seals were replaced and fresh oil throughout the drive train.

This will start on the first crank even after sitting for a couple weeks. The differentials have fresh fluid and the manual hubs have been gone through.

The transfer case has a high and low range Newer drum brakes and it stops reasonably well.

I drive it all over town and have had it on the freeway for short periods. It will go 35 great, but should probably get some new tires if you plan on long freeway trips.

The Jeep is coated in a Linex type coating that is extremely tough. No rust on the Jeep, any old spots were cut out and repaired by the previous owner. Asking $8,500 open to trade offers.”

1964? Flattie Macomb, IL $7000OBO


The seller indicates this was built on a “1964 CJ-7 frame”, which must be a misprint because CJ-7s weren’t introduced until 1976.

1947 CJ-2A Manheim, PA $3900


UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/16/2023) This appears to have an unusual hardtop. I’m not sure if the “complete body restoration kit” is a new body? Or body panels? Or?


“Comes with complete body restoration kit and windshield Also has many small parts right down to original screws for rebuild Have title Some body rust Good flooring, engine, frame is solid Has mounting for snow plow Was on the road two summers ago It is a 1947 but with the better engine from the 50’s that had much more spunk AMC 4 Cylinder engine upgrade Many extra parts included that be used for repairs Could be driving with very little effort or completely restored with parts included”

Not quite all original, given the bumper, windshield, roll bar and other changes, but still may be worth a look.

1947 CJ-2A Hays, KS $5000


The top on this is an interesting one. I thought it was a Porter & Reed (the front portiion appears identical (maybe built from that design?), but it has angled edges along th sides of the top rear rather than rounded ones. Another Kanas-based aircraft-related manufacturer of hardtops was Blue Star, but this doesn’t look like one of theirs.

“95% bone stock 1947 Willys CJ 2a Jeep. Orig flathead 4 cylinder engine w/3 SPD trans and stock transfer case. Engine has not been started for approx 20 years but turns freely by hand. Body in decent shape w/75 years worth of dings, dents and rust. The hat channels are needing the most work. The top (aluminum)is a unique “military look” that, according to original owner, was built and installed by a Wichita aircraft manufacturer in 1948. The interior seats, including the rear seat, are correct. The transmission and transfer move into their gears freely but the unit seems to leak an excessive amount of fluid into the driveway. The engine also seeps oil from the oil pan drain plug. Frame is in excellent condition showing only a slightly bent front bumper end. This is a very original 1947, the perfect candidate for a resto. Currenly registered and titled. Numerous extra parts included: f & r axles, trans / trans case etc. Rolls freely on old tires.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/29/2023) Runs with an f-head. Not sure how much value is in the parts jeep. No titles.


“Nice little Jeep Willy’s that comes with a parts Jeep. Has been a good running Jeep for the past two years for me and my family on the farm. It has a new carburetor and I put an electronic distributor in it. Things that will need to be fixed is a brake line, an ignition since I lost the key in a recent move. The starter was rebuilt and the shop that rebuilt pit the wrong gear on it so it hangs up on the flywheel. Last summer I would pull start and it would stay running all day if I wanted to. Haven’t tried to start this year yet but it should be fine. Do not have title”
