1949 CJ-2A Tempe, Az eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1949_cj3a_tempeUPDATE: Now on eBay. Many more pics and very detailed description — if only all sellers were so precise!

This jeep looks fantastic, but I am surprised someone would do all this work and not replace the 41 rear end with a Dana 44.  Note that this is the original tub, but the tailgate has been carefully removed.

“1949 Willys CJ-2A Jeep which has been mildly customized and modified for off-road and everyday usage around town. This Jeep has been professionally done with attention to detail and function, incorporating many modern upgrades yet still keeping the period CJ-2A look. Although this Jeep has the look and capabilities for serious off-roading it has never been driven on anything but hard surfaced highways. It has been re-powered with a Chevrolet 283 small block backed by Muncie 4-speed transmission and goes like a bat-out-of-hell, but has plenty of low-end torque for any situation.”

1948 CJ-2A Pullman, Wa $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  The price rose from $3000 to $3500.  Still no pics. It’s been for sale since last April.

Here’s one I missed that’s in Pullman, Wa.  No pics were included in the Ad.

“I am selling my 1948 willies jeep. Been updated with a buick V-6 and tilt steering wheel. nice interior, seats are in great shape. The top is in good shape some stiches coming loose on the drivers door around the window. Great oversized tires on centerline rims. Diamond plating, spare tire and 2 jerry can fuel cans. The jeep runs great lots of power and would make an awesome restoration project. I was going to restore it but dont have the time. The body is straight and clean, very little surface rust and the floor boards are pretty solid. Also has a full roll bar. Might be a blast to drive this summer, heck who knows join a jeep club and tour the woods. It’s just a fun thing to drive. It has a new master cylinder but needs the slave cylinders replaced. I have checked and they are $8.95/ea. most jeep parts are pretty cheap.  Call for pics.  509-432-3952”

1947 CJ-2A Grand Island, Ny eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1947_cj2a_grandislandUPDATE:  This jeep is back on ebay.  Now also on Craigslist for $6500.

Here’s a 1947 CJ-2A with lots of pics on eBay. I keep thinking I’ve seen this one, but I couldn’t find it in a search of past posts.  Maybe it was bought and is being resold?

“Seats are Bestop Trailmax.  Low back height fit the small style of the Jeep.  Great Hot Rod look.  I had tried tall back seats with five point harnesses but they were too restricting and did not look proportional.  Lap belts are just the five point harnesses.  I just buckle them around the waist and just let the shoulder belts lay there….”

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_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.

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.

“1947 Willys CJ2A Jeep, clear Illinois title. Runs great 4WD works, restored about 10 years ago, fiberglass body, x-tra parts that go with it. ALWAYS stored indoors!! 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”
