Year? CJ-2Aish Republic, MO **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $400.

This is unusual.  I’ve never seen a mod quite like this.  I’s really like a closer look to see exactly how this was done.

“i have a willys jeep. im not sure the excact year. 6cly engine, 3 speed manual trans. needs alittle cosmetic work but for the most part its pretty solid. no title. no emails please.”

1947 CJ-2A Concordia, Ks $4000


This appears in good shape.  At first I thought this might be a CJ-3A, however, that grille would suggest the ’47 year is correct. I’m gonna guess this has a rear PTO.

“For sale is a 1947 Willys Jeep. Runs and drives good. It has the original motor and the optional PTO. Please call 785-614-4467.”

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


UPDATE:**SOLD** Was $6500.

(10/02/2010) This appears solid with minimal updates and sports a rear PTO.

“This Jeep is in almost original condition. It was on a farm in Nebraska since new, until brought to Boulder County in 2002 by the second owner., from whom we bought it. It has the original engine and all parts, including a rare “power take off” (PTO) on the rear which still works well. Original paint scheme of Americar Black with Harvard Red Wheels. I added the new soft top, and had the original 6 volt system converted to 12 volt for better starting and running. It has a new 12 v system, new generator, new carburetor, new fuel pump, and new 12 v battery, new tires and used rear seat. The engine and transmission are very strong, and it will “climb a tree.”

1947 CJ-2A Houston, Tx $7800


For a $7800 jeep, the body looks pretty rough.  Check out where the windshield has been mounted.  That looks a little strange.

1947 CJ-2A Senatobia, Ms $2500


UPDATE: Pics now provided.

(03/27/2011) Doesn’t run at the moment.

“I have had it for years and last used it in 2003. I put new tires on it at that time. It has a homemade metal top but no doors. It has a tow bar. It would take a battery and some carb cleaning to get it started up again. That is what I did when I bought it. The bad part as far as mechanical is it has no brakes. I never needed them as it is geared very low in low range and the other thing is when I got it the clutch had no fel to the pedal. I replaced the spring on the throwout bearing and that gave me a working clutch. Well, it has either come loose or broken so it is not working again. The spring is about 2.00 but you have to unbolt the transmission to put it on. I would like to get my aproximately 2500. out of it as I know in a day it would be back running but I do not have time. It has a little slack in the steering but the engine and transmission is fine. You could count the fan revolutions turning when it was running.Asking 2500. but would listen to a trade of something unusual and cash. This little thing would idle through almost anything but my family has no interest in it. Make an offer. It was red when I got it years ago and I spray painted it camo. That paint is coming off so it looks uglier than it really is.It has been kept in my barn. Call 662-288-Six Zero Two Zero”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Cleveland, Oh **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $29,000.

(11/30/2010) Bob spotted this really nice original restoration.  I’d like to see some better pics.  I also really like the color scheme.  I do have a couple minor, really minor detail questions pertaining to originality.  Wouldn’t the bezels have been painting the body paint color (though I think they look better in black)? Also, wouldn’t the rear bumper have had the dropped PTO connector angle (though I like the looks of the bumper that was installed on this)?

“Early production column-shift model 20670.
Ground-up restoration to original condition. The jeep has the original 134 cid in line 4-cylinder engine, column-shift T90 3-speed manual transmission and transfer case.
