UPDATE:  Was $7500. **SOLD**

(12/15/2010) Looks nice. Strangely, this doesn’t have a tailgate or a fuel inlet, but it does appear to have drain holes at the step.  So, I’m not sure what this body is.

1947 CJ-2A Hickman, NE $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.

(01/18/2011) This has a fiberglass tub.  It does need some work.

“Pretty solid Jeep. Motor runs very good. Top is very good. 31×10.5 mud terrain treadwrights. only downside is the fiberglass tub. Needs very little done to it. What it does need are spring bushings and shackles which are pretty cheap and the storage bin that the passenger seat is mounted to. Was also converted to a 12v system but I think it still has the original generator, so it has a little bit of a hard time keeping a charge in the 12v battery on short drives. has original wheels. I have doors also. I just never mounted them, because I saw no purpose. $3000 obo.”

1946 CJ-2A Cedar Park, Tx $3500 + trailer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Mike notes in the comments that the pintle hitch was an option for the CJ-2As and bolts right up.  So, this could be a CJ-2A frame with a pintle.

The serial number suggests this is a little late to be a VEC CJ-2A.

Auctions Kings sells a Militarized CJ-2A for $16,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, videos • TAGS: , .

Pete spotted this upcoming suction on the Discovery Channel’s Auction Kings Show.  Turns out, the episode is on the web. It was also for sale here for $20k.

My question is, does the auctioneer have any fiduciary responsibility to be honest?  Because, to say “this is restored perfectly” is simply dishonest.  On the other hand, the seller didn’t know what they were buying, so they shoulder some blame for spending $16,000 (plus any other fees) on this one.  It does look great, just not as historical as implied.

1946 Flattie Kirkland, Wa eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Some  unique customizations on this nice build.

This vehicle is titled as a “1946 Jeep”(which would technically be a CJ2a)  but has been built with a new Willys GPW steel tub as well as Ford running gear. Windshield is from a CJ3a. This was a custom build to replicate an over the top version of a GPW jeep. It was done professionally and is in incredible condition, mechanically as well as cosmetically.

Engine: Ford 302

Transmission: Ford D5

Transfer Case: Dana 18

Axles: Dana 44 front/rear

Edelbrock 1405 4 barrel carb

New Genuine Jeep Willys metal Tub, with fiberglass fenders.

Gorgeous Paint, soft top is in good codition, but leaks through two small gaps in front.  I don’t drive the vehicle in the rain so it never bothered me but the one time I got caught in a Seattle summer rain storm.

Lifted with 35″ Tires on Aluminum Wheels

Custom Bumpers front and rear

Frame is painted a nice Burgandy color. See pics.

Other:

The vehicle has heat. Two heaters, actually. One under each seat.

The vehicle has working turn signals. All gauges work.

Other goodies:

Optima Blue Top battery

Mallory ignition system

Mileage: About 8,000 miles since resoted. I drove the vehicle on a 250 road trip and it did great. Vehicle tracks straight down the freeway at 60 no problems.

Vehicle is 100% new or restored. Beautiful example of a restored Willys.

Note: I am a collector, not a mechanic. I have owned this vehicle and have had no problems with it what so ever. This vehicle is is terrific running condition. Everything works on the vehicle to the best of my knowledge.

Other: Vehicle has three paint flaws. See last three pictures below. They are VERY MINOR and are NOT on the body of the vehicle. The one on the interior windshild is not rusted, it looks like it in the picture, but it is not. The body paint is gorgeous and only has a couple chips on the door sill where your foot would hit getting in and out. Pictures speak a thousand words. Vehicle is being sold as-is, where-is. I will help arrange shipping on this side, but you’re responsible to get it to you and to pay for any shipping charges. There is no warranty on this vehicle express or implied.”

1948 CJ-2A Adams, NE **SOLD***

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: SOLD.  See comments.

(10/24/2010) It’s got some rust, but drives.

“1948 Willys, 32,721 +/- on the odometer. Guy who had it before me parked it in his garage thinking he would do some body work. Sat for 12 years. I got it thinking I needed another project vehicle. Wife decided I didn’t. Dumped some gas in it earlier this summer and it fired right up. Drove OK but brakes need work. Tires are good including a spare on a matching wheel. Looks to me like everything is there with the exception of a seat-bracket and seat. The lights/trim wipers, steps, etc are in a box. Body has some rust (see pictures) but the frame and drive-train look solid and straight. I have a clear title for this jeep. With a little elbow grease this winter I think this has potential as a fun summer ride. Asking $1,100.00 but would entertain any serious offer.”
