1948 CJ-2A Dalton, Ga Trade (or Make offer)


UPDATE:  Price now $4000.

(12/13/2010) This seller provides a detailed overview of what he’d like to get and the pluses/minuses of the jeep.

“I know times are tough on every one now, so I thought I would set this out for a trade or sale to see what would be offered. I am looking for a NICE aircooled (pre-1980) VW Bus, Camper, Thing or Beetle. It will have to be NICE. I am also interested in a good late model passat stationwagon or Jetta 4 door, or NICE new beetle. I am a VW guy so I know what to look for, so no junk please. Any thing else, just let me know. I am not interested in any money from my end, but I’ll look at trades + Cash.


Ok about the Willys:
-Paint is GREAT (original color)
-Has a new Gas tank, and Tool box.
-Upholstery is great.
-Has a great Bestops top and new bows.
-Has a brand new Heater (aftermarket, w/ blower – needs the hoses ran, but the switch and power are all hooked up.)
-Has a GREAT aftermarket Tub (NO RUST).
-Has the original L134 Flat head engine, runs well.
-Has fairly new Kuhmo 16” 7ply AT tires with tubes on OEM rims.
-Trannie is supposed to be rebuilt as of 7K miles (new clutch at that time).
-Is 12v with the High torque starter.
-115 PSI on all cyl. / 12 PSI oil @ idle with hot oil (20 w/ cold).
-Front Disk Brakes – NEW Hardware. Back Brakes – New hardware.
-Has new front headlights and tail lights, WITH TURN SIGNALS!!!

In the past Month:
-New plugs, oil, oil filter, adjusted valves.

Comes with:
-New front pulley, current one works, just has a bent spot.
-New engine gasket set (head, side, intake / exhaust, water intake…) New oil pan gasket. – bought and never needed.
-New fuel pump. Has an electric one installed now that works, but in case you wanted to go back to an OEM look.
-Has a 1 wire Altenator and all new wiring.

OK, there are not alot of “bads”, but here they are:
-It leaks oil. not alot, but around the oil pan at the front it drips. not alot, but it will “mark it’s spot.” It has a few other “drips”, but nothing other than a light drip every so often .
-It needs a front driver’s hub oil seal. This is the one that goes around the ball that the stearing turns on. – This leak is pretty good and should be addressed before going of road.
-Engine is LOUD, it has a small exhaust leak (seal blown at exhaust manifold at down pipe…)and sounds like an old engine. This ain’t a modern car. If your expecting a 2009 TJ, this ain’t it.
(engine has great Oil Pressure and has good compression…)
-Engine could use new points / condensor. I do not use points on my VW’s, (Petronix) so I hate messing with them. I have set the points and it runs good, but the timming light is jumpy about 3*.(New Distributor with petronix = $125 and never worry about it again….)

Any way it is a GREAT looking / Running Jeep that has lots of potential.
Not alot of Flat fender Jeeps around and not a lot that are ready to get in and drive.

I have been Honest in my presentation of this Jeep, please be honest in your descriptions of your trades. This will save us both some time.
706 – nine eight zero – 5313.
I have more photographs, but do not waste my time.”

Santa’s Sleigh Got Stuck Last Night

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features

It seems Santa had to turn to an Orange CJ-2A to complete his duties last night.  I’d like to give credit for the brave soul who snuck out and captured this photo; however, the reader(s) didn’t leave their name. (Actually, this photo came in from two different email addresses, neither of which had a name).  I guess they were concerned they’d get some coal in their socks?

We’ll just call this wiki-leak-like photo a Santa-Leak!

This looks to have a replacement body.

“1948 Jeep Willy’s CJ2A. This jeep has been fully restored around 10 yrs ago. It had 10,000 dollars put into it. It is in extremely good shape and virtually rust free. The paint is still in excellent shape. It has been converted over to 12VDC so as to make it easier to start, especially in cold weather. It has a flathead 4cyl, and runs excellent. The 4 wheel drive works great and shifts smooth. The gear ratio is 5:38. It has been stored indoors. The only trades I am interested in would be a 3/4 to 1 ton 4X4 truck either chevy, gmc, or dodge. Of equal value.

If interested please call Mike at 859-797-3830 or Bill at 859-797-1411 NO CALLS AFTER 9:30PM.”

1940? Model? Southwest Iowa $450


UPDATE:  Lester reports this *might* be a scam, as 936 is a Texas area code rather than a Iowa code. Of course, cell numbers are so portable, of which I’m a perfect example (I have a cali area code), that it’s not a definitive sign.

No pics.  The seller will text a pic. I’m gonna guess this is either a MB/GPW or CJ-2A.

“It needs some work. Its seventy years old. The body is in good shape for the age. It has the origanal engine, trany, as far as I know. Can send pic text. Call or text Joel 936-230-4650”
