1946 CJ-2A Lafayette, La **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: Was $3500. **SOLD**

“1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep VIN/Serial 72467.  What we have up for grabs here is a “Hot Rod” (or perhaps it is best described as a “Resto-Mod Version” thereof)! You see, the JEEP RUNS GREAT WITH NO PROBLEMS thanks to the “fire breathing” Chevy 4.3 Liter V-6 (out of a Monte Carlo 1985). And the hot little motor has just been fully and freshly tuned (with less than 50 miles on it). So yeah she runs like a top and I have “Clear Title” in hand so she really is ready to go! ….. (a list of new stuff on craigslist ad”

1948 CJ-2A Portland, Or $2200 w/OD

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  Still Available

(02/12/2010) This has some unusual features.  It’s an ugly duckling of sorts.  I’m kind of digging that crazy hood — not sure what’s wrong with me — it’s a strange one.  If you can easily get the engine going, this might be an interesting project.  And what’s on the front of the grille?

“1948 Jeep CJ2A – $2,200 OBO. Small block chevy motor / manual steering upgrade / late style 11″ brake conversion (front & rear) / custom hardtop using factory soft doors & frame / borg-warner overdrive / stock 3speed transmission / 2 fuel tanks / very little rust / the jeep has been sitting in a carport since 1991.

1946 CJ-2a Woodland, Ca $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This has a few changes.

“1946 CJ-2A. Has a GPW grill and head lights. 225 oddfire v-6, t-90 4 speed trans. All rewired with newer style 10 circuit fuse panel. Head lights work, high and low beams, tail lights, blinkers, dash light for the gauges, license plate light, all work. All gauges and speedometer work. new coil, new points, new plugs, new radiator, custom air cleaner designed to fit on the carb. without having to cut out the hood which is common when installing a v-6 in these jeeps. new seat covers. warn hubs, tow bar. This jeep runs great. The only thing I know that is wrong is that the brakes probably need to be bled out. You have to pump the brakes a few times then they work great. Runs great. I got this to use as a hunting jeep. Well, times are tough and some things just have to go. I do not have the title but it is in my name. If you are interested, all I have to do is get the paperwork for a lost title and a transfer of title and put it in your name. I will have DMV paperwork in hand. Ive done it before and its really not difficult at all. Asking $3,500 O.B.O. Can reach me at 530 312 1433. NO TRADES!”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Greer, SC eBay … the last column shift?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: this is back on eBay

This CJ-2A appears to be a stock VEC CJ-2A with a serial number of 38965.  What makes this CJ interesting is that it is being sold by the second owner of the Jeep, the Jeep has matching numbers, and it’s a column shift.  What’s more interesting is that according to the CJ-2A site, column shifts were discontinued at number 38221.   So, it’s possible that this is one of the last column shift CJ-2As made.  Am I missing something?

“Low mileage – 64264 actual miles.  I am the second owner of this Jeep.  I have owned the Jeep since 1976.  This CJ-2A has all matching serial numbers, including the tag on the front frame horn.

This flatfender Jeep is an early 1946 model.  It has the original timing chain equipped Go-Devil flathead 4 cylinder engine and column shift 3 speed manual transmission.  The engine was rebuilt in the 1980s by my father and me.  The engine was bored 0.030 over, hardened valve seats were installed on the exhaust valves and the head was milled 0.020.  It has approximately 15,000 miles since the rebuild.  Has original “military standard” oil filter and oil bath air filter.  Also is equipped with a NAPA top cylinder oiler. Electrical system is 6 volt negative ground.  The Jeep has not been run in over a year and will need to be trailered or trucked.  It will need a new battery.

The driveline is all original with the addition of a Warn “All Range” overdrive unit.  The orignal column shift 3 speed transmission shifts solidly and does not pop out of second gear on deceleration as many of these older jeeps are prone to do.  Transfer case is original 2 speed and shifts great.  The rear axle is a Dana 41 and the front axle is a closed knuckle Dana 25.  Gear ratio is 5.38…. ”

1948 Lefty CJ-2A Flagstaff, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The body weaves and bobs a little bit and there’s plenty of minor welds on the inside of the fenders and hood, but otherwise this looks solid.  It’s missing the driver’s side spare tire holder.

“For sale is my unique “lefty” 1948 Willy’s CJ2A.  It has been a great CJ, but it is time for someone else to enjoy it and time for me to move onto another project.  Brief history of what I know for sure.  My Dad found it in a field in Wyoming and wanted to convert it to a hunting vehicle, but I talked him into restoring it. When he took possession, it was in pretty rough shape, so he did a frame off “garage” restoration in 1999-2000.  I would estimate it to be about an 80% restoration.  There are a few blemishes here and there, but overall the vehicle is in great shape.  I requested not to have a complete restoration because I wanted to use it for what it was meant to be used for, fun!  He re-welded the entire frame, rebuilt the original flat head engine, rebuilt the drivetrain, converted it over to a 12V electrical system, re-wired the entire vehicle, repainted it, reupholstered the two front seats, repositioned the spare tire carrier (added a rear tire/jerry can carrier- no jerry cans, sorry!), added a new Bestop Tiger Top with doors and just about everything else you would do in a restoration.  I took possession of it in 2000 and used it as a daily driver for about a year.  Since then I have only used it every now and again just for fun and to keep everything lubricated.  Have used it maybe a half dozen times in light off-roading situations in the past 5 years, other than that, just normal street driving.  Since I have owned it, it has always been garaged.  The new non-directionals tires are mounted on the original wheels.  The wheels have been powder coated and I put Firestone non-directionals on all four wheels and the spare about a year ago….”
