1947 CJ-2A Forest Grove, Or $1650


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $1650.

(07/05/2010) This looks good, though it needs the gas tank replaced.

“Selling a 1947 Willys CJ2A. Runs good and the 4 wheel drive works great. All lights work, headlights, tail lights, brake lights, turn signals and dash light. Heater works great. Steering is sloppy, interior floor could use some work, seats torn up (not original). Fuel tank removed, using portable boat tank now. I do have two fuel tanks, but they need work. Inner windshield frame needs work or replacing. Have extra windshield frame, modified to single glass. Windshield wiper motors need replacing. Would make a great wheeler or great for restoration project. Have title. Asking $1650 OBO. Am looking for guns, Ford Bronco or Ford F150 short bed (only 4×4) in trade, either part or straight across. Don’t have what I am looking for, shoot me an email with pictures, most I can say is NO. Rigs must run. Let me know what you have. Call Phil at 503-359-4520.”

1947 CJ-2A Burleson, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: *SOLD** Was $4500.

This isn’t quite original, but looks good.

“This first civilian version of the US Army Jeep remains in near original state. I have the original front and back seats. The Willys was stored indoors since 1998. I replaced the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, cleaned the fuel system, rebuilt the carburetor, put in fresh plugs, points, rotor, capacitor and distribution cap. The 6 volt system operated the lights and starts the Willys with ease. The differential lube has been changed as well as fresh oil in the motor. The original style tires are mounted with tubes and hold air, but I’m not sure how road worthy they would be. The picture shows just how original this Willys actually is. It would make a great ranch or hunting Jeep. It comes with tow bar not pictured. Asking $4500 or best offer, but don’t hesitate to make a reasonable offer.”

1946 CJ-2A Cape Girardeau, Mo $10,600


Someone invested some time and money into this rebuild.

“For sale is a 1946 CJ2A that has just been completed from a frame of restoration. EVERYTHING on this jeep was taken apart and made like new again. The axels were completely rebuilt all new bearings and seals. There are new brake shoes and lines running to all the wheels, along with all new wheel cylinders. The frame was sand blasted down to the metal prepped with a anti-rust formula, and painted with several coats of chassis paint. Both the amazing original 4cyl engine and T-90 transmission were completely rebuilt with new bearings, gaskets, seals, rings, spark plugs, wires, distributor, new clutch disc and carrier, and everything professionally checked out Also the Engine was custom fitted with a newer and easier style oil filtration system to keep it running forever. The Jeep has been converted to 12v system and in now running a new single wire alternator, coil, and rebuilt starter. This CJ has also had a steering conversion to power steering. It now runs off a saginaw power steering gearbox, and a new p/s pump. The Steering column has been replaced with a very high end Flaming River tilt steering column setup and walnut Grant steering wheel. The Jeep was further customized, by adding completely custom and one of a kind walnut dash covering, full roll cage, and a custom made front and rear bumper, and has also been fitted with seats from a 2008 Jeep Patriot. The Jeep sits 4 inches higher with a brand new Superlift 4″ suspension lift, having all new Superlift leaf springs and shocks. With the Jeep also comes the four 17″ Black Rock Wheels plus a fifth matching one for a spare, and a 1950’s Military style jerry can for a little extra gas when you need it. The Jeep runs and drives great and has 20 miles on it since its completion the 20th of August 2010. And is great fun driving around with the top down or even on rainy days with its new Best Top Tigertop. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.”

2 1946 CJ-2As Butte, MT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1600

“I have two (2) Jeep CJ 2A’s for sale. Here’s the story: I saved one (no title) from the shredder that had a complete chassis but the body had been ruined beyond repair, so I cut it off. I got that chassis running until I could find a body for it – which I found in the form of a complete Jeep that had the motor out and was missing the transmission. I thus dropped the running motor/tranny/transfer case from the chassis into the more complete Jeep.

So what you get is a 1946 CJ-2A (Montana titled) that runs and I have driven around the block, but no further. Why? Basically because I have done nothing to the brakes and don’t have a radiator (but I know a man who has). The Jeep just has a crude hotwiring system to make the motor run. You will have to attend to the brakes, lights, gauges (missing), greasing stuff up, etc. I can demonstrate that the motor is good and that the Jeep runs and drives and that 4wd works, but it will of course require some more work to make it ready to use for fun. It is missing its tailgate, but there is a bent one that you get that is green and could be straightened out to work. I am trying to get the house/garage where the Jeeps are rented and need to sell them.

On the plus side, the orange Jeep has a nice solid body, complete windshield, gas tank, decent paint (orange), tow bar (1 7/8 in ball) and is generally very clean.

You also will get:

– a complete metal half-cab with doors
– an extra motor and exhaust system
– an extra transfer case and complete clutch
– two sets of wheels, one with good newer radial tires and one with older bias ply’s
– an extra chassis with axels
– extra grill/bent but usable hood and tailgate/bent but repairable gas tank/brake hardware/misc

This shouldn’t be a difficult project, and for example with the brakes, between the two Jeeps you should be able to make up one good set of every part (shoes/drums/etc). If you wanted to sell the extra parts off or make a second complete Jeep you could essentially get one for almost free.”

Aluminum Flattie on Bronco Chassis Prescott, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Jeep Rods, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.

Here’s an aluminum flattie body on a modified Ford Bronco chassis.  As I mentioned in a post last week, the vented hoods are very rare.  I’m not sure if that’s aluminum or steel.

“Unique aluminum bodied CJ2 Jeep. This is a professionally built for off road, but very streetable CJ2. It is a real eye catcher. It features a highly modified 1974 Bronco chassis with 4 wheel disc brakes, dual master cylinders, urethane bushings, power steering, trans. cooler, power steering cooler, etc. It sits on, like new, 35X10X15 Goodyears. Power is supplied by a fresh 351w ford with edelbroch manifold and newly rebulit edelbrock 4 barrel, connected to a modified c-4 trans.and headers. It is an older construction, but is done right! I prefer cash, but will consider a trade for a nice cj or wrangler or ? and cash. ”
