1946 CJ-2A Fountain Valley, Ca Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This looks more like a CJ-3A to me.  It’s clearly a paint job from another era … I love it!  I’m wondering if this has the hudston steering.  It has hydraulic clutch/brake and probably swing pedals.

“1946 Willy Jeep. I believe it is the CJ – 2A model. This is a perfect starting spot for a full restore / rebuild. Pretty much everything is there other than the original engine which was only there for a little while because my Grandfather swapped it for a 283 Corvette Engine. Fenders, hood, grille, rims, tires, spare, 4 wheel transmission, axles, unknown transmission (hooked up with 283), steering column, steering wheel, shift linkage, all seats, gas tank, lights, wiring, ignition with key, fold down windshield, more random parts, etc. Please note, these pictures were taken a while ago and the tachometers are no longer with the car, everything else is the exact same.”

1947 CJ-2A Harrisville, WV **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

It appears very stock, but that CJ-2A body is pretty rusted on the sides.

“This jeep is as original and complete as I have seen. Rare items still on this jeep are the canvas top and bows, keyed coil, Naco taillight, and oil bath air cleaner to name a few. Serial number on title matches the firewall plate. ACM number on toeboard and tailgate match. The body tub needs some metal repair, and entire drivetrain will need to be evaluated. The motor turns by hand, but I have not tried to start it. If you are looking for a mudding jeep, keep looking-this one is not for you. Serious inquirers respond with email address and I will contact you regarding a personal inspection. ”

1946 CJ-2A Brookville, In **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2800.

“This is a 1946 Willys flat fender Jeep. If you are looking for originality then you should probably stop reading. This does not have the original engine, seats, windshiels, top etc. If you are looking for a really fun toy that is dependable and goes ANYWHERE this might be your Willys. It starts with the first turn of the key and runs very well. the transfer case works as it should and this thing is unstopable if you like to 4×4. It is a great farm vehicle as well. It has a PTO out the back and there are all kinds of attachments you can find to play with. I have seen these with all kinds of PTO attachments.  As far a dependability and running wise it is in great shape. The steering is a bit sloppy and I was going to attend to it but I have decided to sell it. It does not have a title but I understand it is not hard to get one in Indiana and I might be able to help with that. I have a new fishing boat comming and I need to sell quickly.”

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

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

This CJ-2A was listed on eBay for $1200 (also listed on craigslist for the same amount).  No bids were made.  Bidding ended on April 13, 2010.  However, it looks like a decent price to me. It is a complete jeep with a PTO winch, a top, and a cj-3a windshield with good glass.

“1947 Willy’s CJ-2A with Hardtop and doors. It has a F-Head motor with a 3 speed manual transmission and a CJ-3A windshield. I bought this for $1500 almost 5 years ago. It started right up and drove until I brought it home which is right around 9,000′. I could not get it started and since it has just been sitting in the driveway. I had the starter rebuilt at the cost of $189.81 with a receipt to show. At the moment the battery is dead and the carb. needs rebuilt or replaced. My plan was to upgrade the ignition and put on a new carb. This is a good old flatfender  that just needs a little time and money. There is a swing away tire carrier with 2 jerry can holders.”

I got to thinking, what about Navy CJ-2As and other Navy Models?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This morning, I got wondering if the Navy ordered any other vehicles besides CJ-3As.  Well, I found some information across the net on various Navy Jeeps.  I list some different flattie models below, but some CJ-5s and others also spent time with the Navy.

Navy CJ-2A
Over at the CJ-2A page, Bob posted an article from the Toledo Times (8/24/1946) about the Navy ordering 200 Willys Overland Jeeps in 1946 for use along the great lakes and the coasts.  Bob also mentioned the Navy ordered both CJ-3As & DJ-3As.

This G503.com thread has a some images of Navy CJ-2As and examples of tags (an example tag is seen above).

Stretched Navy CJ-2A, the CJ-2E, and the CJ-2L?
According to JP Magazine, a rumor persists that WO built an extended CJ-2A for the army in 1948 called the CJ-2E.  However, they feel this is a rumor because there are no records for such a creation.  In addition, experts they asked said the extended CJ-2As often came on a later model frame.  While I have not personally seen any of the extended CJ-2As in person, I have seen enough of them for sale to make me think that they might have produced on a very limited basis.

And speaking of streched CJ-2As,
it looks like someone picked up that pinkish ‘2A that I had listed from Bonsall, Ca.  He reports that he was a told a dealer (likely somewhere on the west coast) bought some CJ-2As, stretched them, and then called them a CJ-2L. Well, sure enough, the pinkish CJ-2A’s registration lists it as a CJ-2L (though not a navy jeep).

Navy CJ-3B Navy
According to the JeepDr. website, they have restored a Navy CJ-3B and have the Navy paperwork to back up the claim.  Now, this might be a M-606 as the site doesn’t specifically answer this question.

You can see another example of a Navy CJ-3B at the CJ-3B Page (scroll most of the way to the bottom).

CJ-V35/U for the Navy & USMC
Of course, there is also highly sought after CJ-V35/U made for the Navy & the United States Marine Corp. These were actually CJ-3As modified into CJ-V35/Us
