1947 CJ-2A Ridgway, Co **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

This CJ-2A was listed on eBay for $1200 (also listed on craigslist for the same amount).  No bids were made.  Bidding ended on April 13, 2010.  However, it looks like a decent price to me. It is a complete jeep with a PTO winch, a top, and a cj-3a windshield with good glass.

“1947 Willy’s CJ-2A with Hardtop and doors. It has a F-Head motor with a 3 speed manual transmission and a CJ-3A windshield. I bought this for $1500 almost 5 years ago. It started right up and drove until I brought it home which is right around 9,000′. I could not get it started and since it has just been sitting in the driveway. I had the starter rebuilt at the cost of $189.81 with a receipt to show. At the moment the battery is dead and the carb. needs rebuilt or replaced. My plan was to upgrade the ignition and put on a new carb. This is a good old flatfender  that just needs a little time and money. There is a swing away tire carrier with 2 jerry can holders.”

5 Jeeps ’45 – ’48 Campobello, SC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD**  Was $2500

(10/26/09) The seller suggests at least one of these is a ’45 CJ-2A.  If so, then this might be worth a look and might be a decent price if the ’45 is in good shape.  Lots of parts here it appears.

I got to thinking, what about Navy CJ-2As and other Navy Models?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This morning, I got wondering if the Navy ordered any other vehicles besides CJ-3As.  Well, I found some information across the net on various Navy Jeeps.  I list some different flattie models below, but some CJ-5s and others also spent time with the Navy.

Navy CJ-2A
Over at the CJ-2A page, Bob posted an article from the Toledo Times (8/24/1946) about the Navy ordering 200 Willys Overland Jeeps in 1946 for use along the great lakes and the coasts.  Bob also mentioned the Navy ordered both CJ-3As & DJ-3As.

This G503.com thread has a some images of Navy CJ-2As and examples of tags (an example tag is seen above).

Stretched Navy CJ-2A, the CJ-2E, and the CJ-2L?
According to JP Magazine, a rumor persists that WO built an extended CJ-2A for the army in 1948 called the CJ-2E.  However, they feel this is a rumor because there are no records for such a creation.  In addition, experts they asked said the extended CJ-2As often came on a later model frame.  While I have not personally seen any of the extended CJ-2As in person, I have seen enough of them for sale to make me think that they might have produced on a very limited basis.

And speaking of streched CJ-2As,
it looks like someone picked up that pinkish ‘2A that I had listed from Bonsall, Ca.  He reports that he was a told a dealer (likely somewhere on the west coast) bought some CJ-2As, stretched them, and then called them a CJ-2L. Well, sure enough, the pinkish CJ-2A’s registration lists it as a CJ-2L (though not a navy jeep).

Navy CJ-3B Navy
According to the JeepDr. website, they have restored a Navy CJ-3B and have the Navy paperwork to back up the claim.  Now, this might be a M-606 as the site doesn’t specifically answer this question.

You can see another example of a Navy CJ-3B at the CJ-3B Page (scroll most of the way to the bottom).

CJ-V35/U for the Navy & USMC
Of course, there is also highly sought after CJ-V35/U made for the Navy & the United States Marine Corp. These were actually CJ-3As modified into CJ-V35/Us

1946 CJ-2A Vancouver, Wa w/OD

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This looks good, but apparently it needs some work.

1946 CJ-2A La Porte, Tx **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

It almost looks like there is a MB-esque jockey box in the dash.

“Up for sale is a 1946 Jeep Willys. We have the title which is # 8420494. It also has a motor# listed 21785. This is a hard to find old jeep that has been modified to be a tough old son of a gun.

We have the keys and it ran good about 4 years ago when it was parked. The gas tank needed cleaning badly so we hooked up an gas can to the side and ran it off of it the last time we moved it. It has been customized and much of the body has been replaced by welding heavy duty metal plates. This was my grandfathers and we don’t know a lot about it other than it used to run great but will need some work. You will likely have to trailer it home. The tires are going low and we were told the brake drums were replaced, but we cannot guarantee that.”

1952 CJ-3A Rhode Island **SOLD**

The grille suggests this might be a ’46 or ’47.  Also, there’s something strange about the transmission area — I don’t see any gear shifts, though there is a pto looking shifter.

2 Jeeps CJ-2A & CJ-3B Sommerville, Tx $3000

2 flatties Van Cleave, LA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

(05/05/2008) My favorite line in this is that the seller has checked ebay and therefore knows that these aren’t just old jeeps, but doesn’t know enough to know what models they are.  So, the seller claims to know what they’ve got while at the same time claiming that they don’t really know what they’ve got. Ouch!

“I have two Jeeps, either M38s or CJ2s (sorry, I’m not a Jeep expert). I do know they are the original 1940s models and one had a PTO. I’ve had one person say they are M38s and another say they are early civilian CJ2s, but ??? Either way, they are hard-to-find. One is complete incl. engine, the other is minus the engine, but the rest of the drivetrain appears complete. Both need a fair amount of work if the buyer wants to restore them to original, but you could probably get a running jeep in a full weekend of work, maybe less. There is enough here to get one complete, running jeep and have a fair boneyard left over. One body is poor to fair, one is fair.  I’ve checked eBay, etc., and know that these are not just “old jeeps,” so please, no low-ball offers. I’m asking $2500.00 for everything.”
