1948 CJ-2A Woodland, Wa $325

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Racing • TAGS: .

This looks like an old racer.  The roll cage alone is worth some money.  The engine might be worth $325 if it runs like the seller indicates.  The seller also has a set of mounted terra tractor tires for only $150.

“1948 Willys CJ2A Jeep, You can air up the tires, light it on fire & push it down a hill……….but you probably won’t drive this one without a little fine tuning here and there!
It has been converted to a Buick 3.8 V6 engine, but all of the rest of the drive train appears to be original……..Dana 25 in the front…….Dana 30 in the rear.
The tub, firewall and hood have been hacked by someone that shouldn’t be allowed to have any sharp objects. The fenders, grill and frame might be of use to someone, or, you can refer back to my opening line at the top. $325 and it is yours! You could offer me a little less if I appear to be in a good mood.
Call Steve @ 1-360-600-4223

1946 CJ-2A Rancho Cordova, Ca **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9000.

It seems to be made from extra parts from various jeeps.  Paul notes, correctly, that the outside of the rims have been sprayed, but the insides haven’t, suggesting a quick-n-dirty spray job.  If you look at the bottom of the rig, you can see where black spray paint got to some spots and not other others, like the bottom of the axle housings, the bottom of the springs shackles, parts of the muffler, etc.

“Total Body Off Restoration – Body Mostly New.  New Wiring Harness.  New Soft Top. All new Gauges.  Upgraded Holley Carb.”

It’s in good shape, but isn’t quite road worthy.

1946 CJ-2A Salisbury, MD **SOLD**


UPDATE: Was $3000

The floorboards have been replaced with diamond plating, but this looks pretty good.  Note the seller has the following for sale as well:  King-seely governor. Full PTO system with rear belt pulley drive. Tow bar. And an ultra-rare Ramsey Model 101 crank-driven winch (missing the driveshaft and clutch). I will pull these parts and sell separately unless purchaser would like to negotiate them in the deal.

’46 CJ2a unmolested original. Completely rebuilt brakes — all new steel and rubber lines, shoes, master cylinders. Currently has a new Solex carb, original Carter WO (rebuilt) in a box. New fuel pump, original included. Replaced broken intake manifold with new replacement (broken original included). Still running the original 6v system, all original gauges, starter, and generator. New battery. All gauges work. Sears brand locking hubs. All lights work (only one tail light, no turn signals). 4wd system works.

Starts, runs, idles, and drives with no smoke. Trans shifts cleanly, understanding it is a non-syncro first gear. 4wd system functions well, and yes, I really use it to pull loaded trailers, play in the snow, and drag things around the yard. I drive it (untagged) around the neighborhood regularly and easily hit 30-40mph with no problems — never had it any faster. I have let it idle for an hour, never overheats — actually, I have to put some cardboard over the radiator to keep it warm in the winter.

Body is in very good original shape relative to other unrestored 2a’s. There are a few rust-through spots, would be fairly easily replaced with plain sheet metal, or drive it as is. Driver/passenger floors were replaced at some point with diamondplate. Rear bed is in great shape. Original seats. Windshield was modified to have a single pane glass instead of the split glass. Single 6v wiper was added, that does work. Tailgate works and is in great shape. Body serial numbers match (tub/tailgate), also in line with the production serial number, and its in line with the engine block number. Hat channels are rusted. Frame is completely solid, suspension has performed well, and the steering is relatively tight. I have a lift and we can put it up in the air to look at the bottom side.

Several accessories are available, but not included at the posted price. King-seely governor. Full PTO system with rear belt pulley drive. Tow bar. And an ultra-rare Ramsey Model 101 crank-driven winch (missing the driveshaft and clutch). I will pull these parts and sell separately unless purchaser would like to negotiate them in the deal.

Photos available, or come by and I’ll get it out of the garage. Its a very cool old rig that deserves to stay original. I already have a highly modified Jeep, and could use some my garage space back.”
