1946 CJ-2A Sycamore, Il $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This was on eBay, now on Craigslist.

(03/22/2010) This looks well put together.  I like the way that Pontiac engine sits in the engine compartment.  However, I’m confused about one item .. no gauges?  See picture 1.

“This is a 1946 WILLYS and man is it COOL!  The body is all fiber glass and in great shape. It has a 4 cylinder Pontiac motor. The old guy I am selling it for just drives it in parades but it drives real nice and is street legal. It is very clean I did not air up the tires in the picture but thay are fine. Any ? 815 739 5206”

1948 CJ-2A Campbell, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** $10,500

(04/17/2010) It’s a nicely maintained old Jeep.  The underneath of the body looks great!

“This Vehicle was owned by an older Gentleman for the last 24 years, It looks to be meticulously well maintained and cosmetically redone on the body . The paint appears to be new at some time before i got it , I waxed it and it was the first time anyone had ever waxed it, not that it was neglected I think he just did not get too it before he passed away. This jeep was always stored in a garage and covered before I bought it. Also the interior seats were recovered in a tan vynle , note I did see one small 1/4 inch tear repair on drivers seat looks like a good repair, also the rollbar is upgraded to around 3″ version with a new black bikini  half top, The electrical system was also converted 12 volt with a one wire alternator , with new taillights and marker reflectors . Front bumper looks new with a new brush guard with accessories running lights and brackets for the tow bar that bolts to it, also new headlights with chrome rings and screen guards also stainless grill screen guard. All the gauges fuel  temp amps and oil are new ,original speedo The original wipers are not hooked up or on . I was told they weren’t working but go with vehicle. New Goodyear Wrangler tires and white spoke rims .The body by my inspection does not appear to have any rust or ever had any rust repairs that I can see from inspecting from looking underneath the body. This Willys starts and runs excellant runs real quiet cruises nice at 55 -60 mph  also has a tachometer. Has all dash 4×4 stickers and plates . The motor runs strong and does not emit any smoke upon starting or driving. The trans  is very tight and does not grind or howl when shifting or driving.  overall This jeep to Me seem real nice driver.       The brake system has also been upgrade with a power booster assist witch is mounted on the drivers inner fender in engine bay. and seatbelts were installed front and rear.”

1947 CJ-2A Loveland, Co $1850

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $1850. As Brett and JR note below, the battery box suggests the body is from a M-38.  I lighted up the passenger side image using photoshop, but couldn’t spot any tool indents.  I also tried lightening up the rear facing image, but couldn’t learn anything about the dashboard.

(10/01/2009)  “1947 willys CJ2A jeep. Vehicle has been stored for past several years. New battery, wheel cylinders, and fuel pump. Engine runs and is drivable but not road worthy as yet. Has tow bar, PTO winch and trailer hitch. Engine and frame is civilian and the body is a used military replacement. No major rust, seats are in good condition.”

1947 Stainless Flattie Oakland, TN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, stainless/jewels • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“This is a very rare WWII 1947 Willys. I put jeep in the title for locating purposes only. IT IS NOT A JEEP MANUFACTURED VEHICLE. It is a 1947 WWII willys, with original engine and drivetrain. The body was hand built by skilled craftsmen in 1974 in the philippine islands. It has a complete stainless steel body. The engine was rebuilt about 3-4 years ago by an ASE certified mechanic. It runs and drives like new and has no problems that I am aware of. It has been used mostly in shrine parades and ridding the grandchildren around on the farm. It has been stored in a climate controlled shop most of its life. It naturally has no rust anywhere on it. The tires are very old and do have signs of dry rot, but have excellent tread and if not going on a long trip, should be fine for several more years. I have heard that several were built in the 70’s, but I wouldn’t think that very many are still around. The vehicle comes with a full enclosure and as far as I can tell all the snaps and attachments are in good working order. The vehicle has never been wrecked or disassembled whatsoever. The miles showing on the speedometer are true and correct. There are no dents that I have seen at all. There are some very lite wear scratches in the stainless body from getting in and out or wiping dust off without the proper cloth. Again these are very lite and would probably not be noticed, but I did want to mention them.”

1948 CJ-2A West Jordan, Ut $4200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , , .

Brett spotted this interesting find.  There are at least 3 unusual features on this CJ.  The most obvious one is the paint job; unclear what the inspiration was, but it’s unusual.  The second feature is the automatic transmission that has a column shift rather than a floorshift, which is a clever mod.  Finally, while I have seen expanded windshields, I can not remember seeing an expanded windshield that uses a CJ-2A frame (with the exception of the one below this post — strange how these things surface sometimes).

1947 CJ-2A Wilmington, NC **SOLD** for $4500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

**SOLD**

The seller explains why this was painted pink.  Looking past the pink color and it appears this CJ-2A is in excellent condition.

“1947 Willys CJ 2A – two tone hot pink. This flat fender Army Jeep runs great and is lots of fun. It has been kept in a garage or under shelter for the last 8 years. It has been converted from the original 6 volt system to 12 volts and has new breaks on it. It is an eye catching head turning vehicle they people go crazy over taking pictures of it with their cell phones and cirling back to get another look at it. It was painted hot pink by the previous owner in KC who modeled it after Elvis’ jeep he saw at Graceland. The exact milage is unknown.”

1946 CJ-2A Boise, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1500.  I dropped by to see this old Willys.  I’ve added some pics below.

One great thing this jeep has is a PTO with an old chain driven winch.  It’s held on by a flat sheet of steel that acts as a bumper. There’s been quite a few mods to the front of the frame, including patches on both sides of the front of the frame. This jeep started instantly with a little help from the choke.

The windshield frame and glass looks like it’s from an MB, as it looks shorter than the standard CJ-2A windshield and has no willys stamp.  The body is a little rough and probably worth passing over with a magnet.

It’s got full floating hubs on the back.  It also has some great meaty, yet small, tires.
