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. I ALSO HAD THE WHEELS SANDBLASTED AND POWDER COATED BLACK AND PUT 5 NEW TIRES ON HER. THE TOP IS IN FAIR SHAPE… BUT… UNDER THE BACK SEAT WAS A BRAND NEW, NEVER OUT OF THE PACKAGE BIKINI TOP FOR THE JEEP!!! THIS HAS MANY OF THE PLUS’S YOU WANT TO FIND BUT CAN’T… BOW HOLDERS, JERRY CANS AND THE BRACKETS, SIDE STEPS AND SPARE TIRE CARRIER”

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.”

1948 CJ-2A Lamar, Mo $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

There have been some mods to the driver’s step.

“This is a 1948 Willys Jeep. It is my grandfathers jeep, and is in great condition. It is parade ready. The tires and brakes are good and the engine runs fine, and has a heater inside of the cab. Its a great vehicle to drive around the farm, go fishing in, and showing off in town. The cab is obviously not origional, but in good condition and has its advantages. Great for any veteran or anyone who has great respect and passion for this era, as my grandfather does. Please contact my grandfather, Brad at 417-214-2363 (Cellphone) or 417-682-6578 (Home Phone) or you can contact me through Craigs List, though it may be a slower way of contacting about the jeep. Thank you.”

1946 CJ-2A Kirkland, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $15,500

Technically, the first year of production on civilian jeeps was 1945.  This CJ sounds like it has an interesting history.

“This is the Original Grand Daddy of all Civilian Jeeps- the Willy’s CJ2a is the first model year of the post WWII civilian market run. This is a very rare collector’s item. This is unit # 70007.  She is in excellent shape. This one was kept in a Detroit Show Room for over 25 years prior to being in storage for 10 years. When the dealer passed away his estate sold off all assets and that is how we found her, 5 years ago. We have the original Magazine Adds from Time Magazine, July 15, 1946.”
