Year? CJ-2A Fremont, Oh $2500

I think this looks pretty good considering it has been sitting 10 years (or more); however, I’m sure it doesn’t look $2500 good.

1946 VEC CJ-2A Durango, Co $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

This has got a few issues.

“Selling my Willys!!! Don’t really want to, but it looks like I might be going to Afghanistan and would rather someone use it than have it sit in storage.

’46 VEC CJ2A #17477. Jeep runs and drives great but should still be considered a project. Needs a lot of little things but I drove it all summer without any issues. I stripped all of the bondo off of this Jeep that previous owners put on it so you can see what needs to be done. I have nothing to hide with this CJ and I hope someone gets as much fun out of it as I did. This thing’s been all over the San Juans and Moab and has been a great travel companion. This would be an excellent starting point for someone new to the old Jeeps as I located most of the hard-to-find parts and got the mechanical gremlins out already (knock on wood). If you buy it, I would also be willing to spend a day going through it with you and showing you everything that it needs.

Will consider partial trades for cool overland gear (ARB awning, engel fridge, RTT, GOOD lights, winches, etc). I have the title in hand and would be more than happy to put it in indoor storage for you until you can pick it up (storage is about $100/mo around here)….. Please no low-ball offers … give me a call at 9-0-7-3-4-7-2-3-6-6”

Andy’s 1947 CJ-2A Airport Jeep

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: .

A reader named Andy contacted me the other day about a flatfender that he purchased.  He was told it was a former airport Jeep. Anyone recognize some of these mods?  How about them rims!

Andy writes, “No data tags inside the body, but need to check the firewall tomorrow. The guy I bought the jeep from says that he saw another one with the same wheels on it at the hunting camp where he got this jeep …. There is some use of aluminum in this body, goes hand in hand with the airport shop mod theory …. It appears that the patches in the floors and sides were not really needed at the time they were done.. the body was still very sound in those areas. Looking in the wheel wells, you can see the original not rusted body covered by a layer of metal from the top. I think you may be right on the combination of manuf. top with some airport shop ‘extras’. Those doors sure are unique, I have not seen such before ..”

I found this image on the web at a fake webpage (on of those pages that aggregates a bunch of misc stuff in hopes of getting click throughs).  It looks like a pretty cool build.  Anyone ever seen it or know any history?

1949 CJ-2A Spring Hill, KS **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4500

(11/19/2010) The seller notes there is no rust anywhere, but that sure looks like surface rust on the hood?  Also, it sounds like it doesn’t run given it needs a new water pump?  This looks solid.

“THIS IS A TRUE BARN FIND… THIS WILLYS HAS BEEN IN A BARN FOR OVER 14 YEARS !!! YOU WILL NOT FIND A STRAIGHTER OF MORE COMPLETE WILLYS AROUND !! THERE IS NO RUST ON THE JEEP…AND THE METAL IS ALL STRAIGHT. THE SEATS ARE IN PERFECT SHAPE. I TRAILERED THIS JEEP HOME AND GOT IT RUNNING, I HAVE THE NEW FUEL TANK AND WATER PUMP IT NEEDS.

1948 CJ-3A? St. Louis, Mo eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This is listed as a 3A, but the serial number of 211105 suggests a late 2A.  This has a variety of mods, including a cool-air intake.

“This particular ’48 CJ3A has had thousands of dollars invested in it to make it what you see today. This jeep has been assembled and maintained by a master mechanic that is certified under 9 different automotive brands. He has used only the best parts while assembling this off road machine and has spent thousands of dollars doing so. Included with the Jeep is a 1965 M416 military trailer. This is an authentic military trailer but has had a tailgate cut into it. It wears the same, matching wheels and tires as the jeep that pulls it….”

1946 CJ-2A Eufaula, AL eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

The starting price is $1200.  The engine is frozen; however this looks like it would make a good restoration candidate.  This has the wrong grille for a ’46.

“You are bidding on a 1946 CJA2 Jeep that was a GA barn find. Very little rust on the body, mainly surface rust. Comes with the stock 4cyl engine, unfortunately it was frozen up and I don’t know a thing about engine work. Due to this fact I’m selling this vehicle much cheaper than i wanted to. In need of a complete restore, but when it’s finished it will be a sweet little ride. $500.00 non refundable deposit due at auction end. Thanks for looking, and please contact me with any questions you have. Local pickup only.”

Clearly, this has some issues….

“I have a 1948 CJ 2a Willys for sale. I bought it as a parts vehicle for my other one. Time and money have not permitted me to work on this project. I need room in the garage because I have too many projects going on. It does not run. No title. It has lock out hubs on the front axle. It needs work and could make you a project or parts. Some of the photos are from the day I brought it home a few years back. the grill, fenders, hood, and windshield have been removed, but I still have them.”
