1948 CJ-2A Blue Springs, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

If the body parts are as good as advertised, this might not be a bad price.

“1948 CJ2A Clear title. I bought this in May 2010 with thoughts about a project but have decided I will never get the time . Motor turns over freely and have got it to fire but have not had it running. Jeep is complete otherwise. Body, grill, hood, and passenger front fender are replacements and are in very good condition. Driver front fender, tailgate, and windsheild frame are original. Tailgate is pretty good but windshield frame is fair. Comes with 9 tires and wheels. 4 wheels are like new with execellent millitary tires. I also have a spare T-90 transmisson, head, original hood, new tailgate. Various other parts. needs brake work. ”

1946 CJ-2A Chatham, Nj eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

The seller is pretty accurate about the bad mods.  Also note the welds and patches on the front rails of the frame.

“Rare early CJ2A Good Restoration Candidate. I recently came across this running, drivable early CJ2A as part of a package deal for a few jeeps I bought. The serial number is 48165 which puts it in the middle of 1946 after the switch from column shifts back to shifter on the floor.

This jeep has served as a gas station plow jeep for the past forty years. It starts right up and runs well, shifts fine and remarkably the brakes work. It appears that new leaf springs were put on it sometime ago. The engine appears to be the original CJ block with an MB head on it. It runs smooth with no smoke or strange noises. Valve tappets are a little noisy like most flathead engines are. Drivetrain appears to be original including the 16 inch wheels.Unfortunately Bubba got his hands this jeep so the following things will need attention as it is restored:

The plow rig has damaged the front frame horns – they have been rewelded, but not a pretty sight ….”

“Willys Jeep, runs great, 4×4 works awesome, good tires. This is the perfect jeep for the upcoming deer hunt, as it is small and can get to many places to pull your prize out of the woods. May be willing to trade for truck, motorcycle, 4 wheeler, etc. Please don’t call asking if I would like to trade for a collection of “Star wars DVD’S or anything else like the DVDS!”

1947 CJ-2A “Blindside” Lake Geneva, WI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(08/07/2010) This is a fiberglass bodied flattie on a custom frame.  I’ve included lots of pics of this good looking build.  Note in the last image is a stack of vintage, though used, desert dogs.

Engine: Small block Chevy, .060 over 4 bolt main, 360 cubic inches. Mallory Unilite electronic ignition, Mallory Promaster coil, Edelbrock 750 CFM carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, B&M air cleaner, Crane musclecar 350/350 hydraulic camshaft, melling high volume oil pump, SRE high torque mini starter, marine aluminum 8 quart oil pan, aluminum Mickey Thompson valve covers, Griffin aluminum radiator, aluminum high volume water pump, ceramic coated fenderwell headers, & 2 ½” turbo mufflers.

Transmission: 1970 Chevy Turbo-hydramatic 400 3 speed automatic. Trans was disassembled, boiled, and rebuilt with: new steels, new clutches, new band, new gaskets, and new seals. Valve body has a B&M trans-pak shift kit & adjustable vacuum modulator. Torque convertor is a 10”. Trans temperature is maintained via a ‘Keep Cool’ frame mounted trans cooler. Trans is shifted via a B&M Pro-Stick shifter with reverse lock-out and rear cable conversion.

Transfer-case: Dana 20 twin-stick. Transfer Case was disassembled, boiled, and rebuilt with new gaskets, new seals, & new bearings. Shifter ‘lock-out’ detent was removed to achieve low range in 2 wheel drive.

Rear Axle: Dana 44. Axle was disassembled, boiled, and completely rebuilt with new gaskets, seals, and bearings. Axle has 30 spline one piece axle shafts, new ring and pinion gears (4.27), new spring pads, new u-bolts, freshly turned drums (11”), new shoes/spring kits/wheel cylinders, new brake lines, and rear cover.

Front Axle: Dana 25. Axle was disassembled, boiled, and completely rebuilt with new gaskets, seals, and bearings. Axle has 4.27 ring and pinion gears, new spring pads, new u-bolts, freshly turned drums (11”), new shoes/spring kits/wheel cylinders, new stainless braided flexible brake lines, new closed-knuckle seals, and ‘Warn’ locking hubs.

Chassis: Custom built 2” x 3” tube frame with: frame mounted 8-point roll cage, heavy duty spring perches, military-wrap springs, heavy duty shackles and shackle bolts (w/ greasable zerks), heavy duty shock absorbers, removable transmission cross-member, heavy duty motor mounts, tube brush bar & bumper, and GM Power steering (Saginaw box, 4.25 turns lock to lock).

General:

Fiberglass body and fenders, original windshield & grill shell. Wilwood aluminum swing pedal assembly & brake master cylinder. Offenhauser throttle linkage. Quick disconnect steering wheel. Holley high-volume electric fuel pump. Holley high pressure fuel regulator. Fram high-volume fuel filter. ½” aluminum fuel line.

Heavy Duty battery cables. Southwest speed battery box. Moroso battery disconnect. Diamond plate dashboard with grab bar. Autogauge gauges. ‘KC Daylighter’ headlights. Wheels are 15” X 10” Ansen aluminum slots. Tires are 33 X 12.50 X 15. They don’t appear to have been used much as they have a ton of tread.

All the gauges (speedometer/odometer, oil pressure, voltmeter, & temperature) work. All lights (headlights, tail lights, brake lights, gauge lights) work. Seats are fully adjustable high back buckets, and are fairly comfortable. The wiper motor is new, but has never been hooked up.

The willys runs, drives, handles, and stops good. The 10” torque convertor seems to stall too high, if I kept it, I would replace it with a stock 12” convertor. The paint is not perfect, and there are a few holes that are an eyesore (hole for an antennae & a hole for a gas tank filler tube…see pics). The windshield frame has some rust (see pics).

Willys also comes with 4 KC Daylighters, a 2 sets of 3” seat belts, steel diamond plate rocker supports, and a steel diamond plate rear surround (see pictures). Please ask any and all questions. Thanks for looking, Doug”

1948 CJ-2A Corpus Christi, Tx $1500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $1500.  New Pics added.

(11/20/09) This is a one of the “lefty” cj-2as, with the spare tire mounted on the driver’s side.  I swear I’ve seen this jeep before, but I can’t find it in my database. This ran before a bunch of work was done on it; and, there is still work left to be done.

“This is a ’48 Willys, it has been parked for over a year. Ran when it was parked. The lights have been converted to 12 volt and it has 15″ rims on it other than that it is original. I removed the wiring to replace it with more original style but have not finished this. The jeep ran good when it was parked, the tranny and transfer case have been completly rebuiltIt and the front shafts have been replaced. it has a one piece windshield frame with the glass cracked. If you want more pics email for them.”

1947? VEC CJ-2A Inland Empire, Ca $15,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This is interesting.  It’s a CJ-2A being sold as a 1947, but has a serial number of 28367, which means it should have the tool indents as well.  It could mean the body is a replacement or something else. Or, someone has melded a couple jeeps together.

“The CJ2A is the civilian version of the famous WWII Jeep (known as the MB) from which the term “Jeep” was coined. Of course, there were no new vehicles available during the war, so the civilian versions were first produced in July of 1945 (2 months after V-E day and 1 month *before* V-J day!), As far as Jeeps go though, this body style is the absolute earliest a civilian could purchase.

As you can see, this particular CJ2A has been painted in military colors, and is equipped with military tires.   pristine, restored examples. This particular jeep has obviously been hacked on over the years, although sometimes its hard to tell wether something has been altered somewhere along the line or if its just 1940s technology.”
