• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_indianaHere’s a militarized CJ-2A where the seller has gone all out with extras.  Why wait for the auction when you can purchase it now for only $19.9K.  Overall, the jeep appears in pretty good condition.

“.. Vehicle runs beautifully and drives straight. Everything is operational. This is noted ALL ORIGINAL 1948 Willys metal body and frame. Sandblasted and repaired with METAL as needed. Body is not perfect, I wanted to keep as much original parts as I could. I am a perfectionist with attention to detail, and though the jeep is not perfect, it is close.

1946 VEC Klamath Falls, Or SOLD

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_klamathfallsUPDATE 2: The seller and Robert agreed to a price, so Robert will be taking this nice VEC home 🙂

UPDATE: Robert provided a great link to a CJ-2A page post that discusses how bodies with driver side indents were mixed with non driver side indent bodies during assembly.

A reader named Randy pointed this jeep out to me.  This VEC has the serial #24076.  This CJ-2A has the column shift, as it should (up to #38221). However, I would expect it to also have the driver side indents (up to #29500)?

“This wonderful Very Early Civilian CJ2A is in great shape. See the pictures below. It is very solid for an unrestored 1946.  My father obtained this jeep in, I believe, 1956. I don’t know any of its history before this time. When we got it it was blue. (I’m sure it was originally forest green though, in places you can see green and the wheels were yellow. I understand that was an original color scheme.)…. A good mechanical refurbishing was done, in the late 1980s. The motor and transfer case were rebuilt. It was converted to 12v. The charging system was upgraded to 12v but the original starter was kept (it really turns over but you don’t want to crank it for a long period). A voltage reduction was used to retain the original instruments. It was again re-painted blue…..”

The paint job on this is interesting.  The bumper is pretty wild; I guess the jeep was used for pushing?

1948? CJ-2A Winstead, Mn $2,995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1948_cj2a_winsteadA reader named Jim forwarded this interesting CJ-2A.  The body appears in very good shape.  It sports a column shift and a PTO.  It appears to have a CJ-3B windshield. With the 3 dash panels and the column shifting, I’d guess this (or part of it) is actually a mid 1946 rather than a 1948.

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.”

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_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_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”
