1949 CJ-2A Russellville, Al eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1949_cj2a_alabamaThis appears to be in pretty good condition. The seller is trying to claim mileage of only 5800, but I’m very sure that’s a replacement speedometer (as are several of the other gauges).  I suspect the front turn signals/pking lights are after market as well.

“What an amazing vehicle!  This jeep was given to a Tennessee Forrest Ranger as a retirement gift, and he held onto it unitl I bought it  3 months ago!  It runs out really well…has new tires…a working original WENCH and PTO GEARS underneath for FARM ATTACHMENTS… The engine is a HURRICANE 4 cyl with 3 speed transmission…4WD…5800 ORIGINAL miles and the ORIGINAL PAINT, as well…I’ve been through many jeeps, and I have to say that I’ve never seen another like this!  it’s truly ONE-OF-A-KIND! if you have questions, call me at my office TOLLFREE @ 888-331-5802, and ask for Keith- in reference to the ’49 Jeep”

1946 CJ-2A CDA, Idaho eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_cdaThere appears to be no reserve on this.  There’s been a good deal of work done on this rock crawler.  The grille and lights are a bit odd though.

1946 CJ-2A (mb?) Avenal, Ca $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, GPW (Ford MB), MB

1946_cj2a_avenalUPDATE:  Price dropped to $3000

With the driver side indents and the lack of tailgate, this certainly looks like an MB/GPW to me.  Note the phone number is missing a digit.

“nice jeep …runs ok…have done some basic work on it…used it for deer season last year and now we are moving….got to much stuff has original straight 4 cylinder ….has 4 new bi-directional military tires,new battery,new plugs, cap,rotor and points new coil and 12 volt head lights….12 volt conversion with altenator… call 559-816-960.”

1947 CJ-2A Racine, Wi $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_racineThis CJ-2A has a fiberglass body.  The roll bar is attached to the back wheel wells.  I’m pretty sure that’s not a good idea.

Ready to go for spring, get’s lots of looks!! Price is negotiable, would consider trade for Grand Marquis, or Crown Victoria or ??. Let me know what you got?

1947 CJ-2A Port Orchard, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $400. **SOLD**

Here’s a parts jeep.  With the Dana 30 front and AMC 20 rear.  The paint job is unusual.  The back of this body appears solid (no tailgate).  I’m wondering if that’s a DJ body.

“1947 Flat Fender Willy’s Jeep CJ 2A with roll cage. No transmission/transfercase. Mounts for small-block Ford (289 / 302). Original axles plus Dana 30 front and AMC 20 rear. Need the space more than I need the Jeep. $400 / obo.”

Builds — CJ-2A Body and Frame Work by Mike

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-2A, Website

mike_rebuildI ran across some extensively photographed and discussed body and framework (boxing in the frame) on the CJ-2A page forums.  There are plenty of pics and four or more videos.  There’s also some interesting discussions about dealing with hat channels:  to fill or not to fill, that is the question (page 3 of the forum). So, if you are doing some body work on a CJ-2A, you’ll find this interesting.

The pic on the right show’s Mike’s first attempt at welding thin body metal.  After some additional grinding and filler it looks like it will turn out great.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_marysvilleUPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $7500

Well, it looks good and things look straight, but I suspect the price will slip.  It’s not quite military and not quite civilian, but probably a fun little run around rig.

“1948 Willys Jeep Kaiser CJ2A. The frame and replacement body were sandblasted and epoxy primed. The 4 cyl 134 ci engine was professionally rebuilt, and runs good. New items in the last three years include: shocks, leaf springs, 16″ military tires, gauges, poly gas tank, radiator, starter, brake lines, wheel cylinders, master cyl, exhaust system, wiring harness, carb rebuilt, O.D. Green paint, etc, etc. The tires only have about 20 miles on them. This was a civilian or farm jeep that was made to look like the military version. With some numbers, stars, and other finishing touches this coulf be a very nice parade jeep”

1946 CJ-2A Aumsville, Or $1500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_aumsvilleIt ran when they last parked it.  I don’t know if that means it still runs or they haven’t tried starting it or?

“This is a pretty original 1946 CJ2A. I don’t know a whole lot about it – only that it ran when parked. My dad and I received this jeep from a cousin in trade for something else. I think the pictures tell the story and I have more so email me if you’d like for me to send you additional pictures. I don’t have the wherewithal (mainly a lack of time) to do anything with the jeep at this time. If you see this ad, the jeep is still available. The only trade I would consider is a partial trade towards an uncut first generation Bronco with minimal rust and a straight body.”

“A great project for you flat fender Jeep fans.  This is a 1942 Ford built GPW Jeep basket case with many many parts.  There are basically two Jeeps here, the ’42 is a genuine WWII era model complete with the built in ammo storage cans in the back, the flip up headlights and the Browning machine gun mounting plate built into the frame.  The other is a 1946 civilian jeep.  These represent 10+ years of accumulating the parts and pieces to build a WWII jeep that I never got around to doing. ”

1945 CJ-2A Snohomish, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1945_cj2a_snohomishUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1700

It appears a good deal of work has been done throughout the frame, suspension and drivetrain.  It also includes a second V6.  If you can get it started, this would be a very good deal I think.  While it’s missing the driver side step, I think it that won’t slow it down in the trails.  Nice aluminum slot rims.

“To many projects, got to get rid of some. Jeep used to run would probably fire up with a little work, haven’t tried yet. This jeep is super flexy, it is spring over in the rear and under in the front. Frame has been beefed up with custom bumpers on both ends. It has a older 231 V6 with a rebuit turbo 350 automatic. Wrangler springs, 30 disc brake front end with a lockright and a 20 rear with 1 piece axles and a welded dif. Full cage, 3a windshield, power steering, full harnesses, ok tub and good full top. Have a newer 231 that goes with it. With a little work it will be a nice offroader. It has 33 swampers on it now the price above is without these wheels and tires. You can have it with them for 2200.00. Jeep has been sitting for about 5 years. It is titled with collector plates.”
