1946 CJ-2A Connecticut $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1946_cj2a_ct1The $6500 is a buy it now price on eBay.  Apparently the Seller has 2 other offers made via eBay as well.  This appears to be on the boarder between a VEC and an EC CJ-2A.  The seller is only the 2nd owner.  Too bad a floor shifter was swapped into it.  It looks quite nice.

“Here is an original 46 willys cj2a that I bought 7 years ago off the original owener who purchased the jeep new in 1946 and used it on his farm in Easton CT.  The jeep is still in running condition after all those years and only has 27000 miles.  the way you see it is pretty much the way I bought it,  I replaced the fuel pump, plugs , and plug wires.  The jeep starts right up and will even start with the original hand crank!  The motor at times has a skip to it, so it may need the carb rebuilt eventually but does not smoke or knock. The jeep drives great and will do almost 50mph it handles good and does not shimmy at any speed.  It is really fun speed around back roads in this little jeep! At some point it was converted from column shift to floor shift, it is still 6 volt and has its original wiring harness….”

1946 CJ-2A Powell, Oh eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_powellUPDATE:  This is back on eBay.  Very nice work!

This appears to be a well done restoration, though not restored to original specs.  In an earlier post, I mentioned the body was probably an aftermarket body, but I was wrong.  The seller indicates this is the original body.  If that’s the case, then the seller has some excellent work on this CJ. Apparently, this about the 15th CJ the seller has built.  See the comments on the ebay ad for additional information about this CJ.

“1946 Restored Willys CJ2A. Jeep restored for daily driver with reliable GM 4 cylinder and 4 speed manual transmission.  12-volt electrical system with battery relocated between seats, brand new “best top” and doors, 6-point roll cage, transfer case and hubs rebuilt in restoration.  Fuel cell in rear cargo area (not under driver’s seat as originally built). Auto meter gauges. Frame is immaculate.  Body and paint exceptional, no rust whatsoever.”

1947 CJ-2A Cedar Rapids, Ia eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_cedarrapidsI’m liking this CJ-2A.  It looks to be in good shape and appears nearly stock, down to the 6 volt wiring.

“This 1947 Willys Jeep runs and acts just like its old.  However she’s reliable and has her own personality. Yep just like all the old ones this gal needs a special touch to start, for which I will show the new buyer. Yes, I did drive it as a work vehicle for three years. Its a 6 VOLT system and the engine was overhauled in 1967 which is stamped on the block. Original nameplates are on the body. The transmission shifts great, does not jump gears and does leaks a “little” oil around the seals. The 4×4 transfer case shifts in & out smoothly. The PTO works great and drives the 60’ish Ramsey 12,000 LB winch just fine…. .”

1945? CJ-2A Libby, MT *SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1945_cj2a_libbyUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“One 1945 Willys Jeep Cj-2A up for sale. I bought this jeep for my father, but his location no longer allows for this type of vehicle.  The jeep is in need of restoration, but is nearly ready to drive. The jeep has a brand new set of tires.  The stickers haven’t even worn off of them.  They have approximately 30 yards of mileage on them. There is also a new starter installed. The engine turns over, and spark is good.  It is not running due to a probable timing issue.  It backfires, but doesn’t start yet. This jeep is in need of a new wiring harness, along with various and sundry repairs.  The frame is good, the drive system appears to be in running order, although with some use it will probably need some seals and gaskets to be replaced. The tub has quite a bit of rust, as is normal with a 1940’s jeep.  The tailgate and windshield frame fold (no glass in the windshield though), and the attached towbar is usable….”

1945 CJ-2A Bozeman, MT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1945_cj2a_bozemanUPDATE:  **SOLD**

This is a beautiful CJ-2A, no doubt about that.  However, if I’m going to spend $19k for a CJ-2A, I would prefer it be restored accurately.  Here’s a few minor issues and thoughts.  If this is a 1945 CJ-2A (only 1,824 made), then I’d expect the serial number to be pretty low. So, with that (and with help from the Cj-2A Page website) here’s a few detail issues:

  1. The color is off.  This is a pale green rather than the two original colors (pasture green or harvest tan).  Additional colors weren’t added to the line until serial number 38221 (mid 1946).
  2. The windshield is a CJ-3A windshield.
  3. The headlight bezels, while they look better in chrome, should be the body color up to serial number 38687
  4. I believe the front hubs are aftermarket, as I think the early CJ-2As came without hubs (I could be wrong about this detail)
  5. I don’t see the cutouts on the driver side (maybe the image obscures them) that should be there on a CJ-2A up to serial number approximately 29500.

There are other details I would want to know more about, however the pictures dont’ show enough information.

“This is a 1945 Willys Jeep CJ-2A. It is owned by mother in-law who has owned it for almost 20 years. She is the second owner. The first owner was an elderly potato farmer in Manhattan, Montana. She has kept this CJ-2A in her garage under a sheet for the past 15 years. It was restored in the mid 1990’s and has been driven about 100 miles per year since. It has the original engine though it has been rebuilt. It is a pale green color insode and out. I have driven this Willys and can assure you it starts right up, doesn’t smoke, and shifts through all of the gears smoothly. It is 100% rust free. This is a very clean, straight Willys that has been very well cared for. $19000”

1947 CJ-2A Canada eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1947_cj2a_canadaIt seems the seller has owned this for 35 years, but doesn’t really know anything about it.  The seller has this listed as a CJ-3B and wasn’t aware that the back of the jeep wasn’t original.  It’s certainly an interesting rebuild.  The seller apparently had this sold, but the buyer backed out, so the seller has relisted it.

Here’s what appears to be a very restorable VEC CJ-2A.  And it runs!

“Here is a 1945 Jeep Willy’s for sale. Its been off the road for about 12 years. Stock flat head engine. The oil’s been changed and a tune up has been performed. Carb rebuild, plugs, wires, points, condensor, interstate battery. It runs but “pops” back through the intake. It drives but needs brake work.

1947 CJ-2A Avondale, Az $2700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_avondaleThis jeep has some great drive train upgrades.  With the seller willing to negotiate, this might become a pretty good deal for someone.

“I have a ’47-ish Willys jeep for sale. It has a Buick 225, SM420(I think), Dana 300, Dana 30 front, Dana 44 rear. The Willys needs a little work; the headlights need to be installed and wired and the cooling system needs help. The wiring is very simple, a few butt connectors and everything will light right up. I think the radiator needs to be flushed to clear a few blocked tubes, nothing major. The battery will need to be charged, but the Willys starts and runs just fine; ‘tiI it gets too hot. I have a clear AZ title that is ready to be notarized and turned over to the buyer. Because it is a 1947 vehicle no emissions are required. With a little work this Willys will be a great little machine. Let me know if you’re interested. $2700 OBO. I’m willing to negotiate a reasonable price, please reply with your phone number. Thanks, JN Crowe.”

1946_cj2a_durangoJim’s selling his hot rod.  Jeeps seem to be like cats, you never real own them, only take care of them for a while.

“This is our beast, our grunt wagon, I took this heavily modified Jeep in trade on a full military M38 jeep I was selling a couple years ago thinking that I had no interest in a V8 powered Willys. Then I started driving it, and playing with it, and liking it, really liking it, it is a beast, a powerhouse, it is the grunt wagon. I’ll try to list everything that’s been modified, rebuilt, changed etc, the list is long. A little warning here, please don’t buy this rig for your teenage son, it has way too much power for someone lacking experience. I would have killed myself in this thing at that age as nearly 300 HP in a 2400lb short wheel base, lifted flat fender jeep does not have a very large margin of error. ”
