1948 CJ-2A Milford, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500

This looks good.

“For sale is a green 1948 Willys Overland CJ-2A. It has an operational PTO (power take off). It has virtually no oil drips. The Jeep starts, runs, and drives well. Transmission shifts smoothly and the 4wd system shifts in/out and works just fine. I reverted the system back to 6 volt for nostalgic purposes but the 12 volt resisters are still in place to convert it back. Tires have about 500 miles on them. This Jeep is road worthy and I have the title ready to sign over to you. It is hard to find these things in the shape she is in. I’m sad to part with it, but I bought it as a “getting out of the military gift to myself,” and now it’s time to move on to the next fun project. I can’t provide details on its history prior to my ownership, but I can give you details on every repair since I have owned it. It comes with a complete soft top, Willys Overland CJ2A reprinted mechanics manual, a spare set of spark plugs and a spare paper oil filter”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Wynnewood, PA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $39,000

This isn’t your every day restoration.  It won the prestigious Grand National Senior Award, from the Antique Automobile Club of America, and is the only known jeep ever to achieve this distinction.  Also, the seller is aware the price is above the normal price of the average restored jeep (so any comments apart that are not price related would be appreciated).

1946 Willys CJ-2A with rare column shift, PTO, full eight-piece canvas top,  all mechanical components new or rebuilt, meticulously restored to factory-fresh condition. AACA Grand National Senior Award, a perfect museum-quality specimen without peer. Over $45K invested. Price: $39,000.

This jeep is full of nostalgia and meaning for me. It’s similar to the jeep my grandfather bought new in Philadelphia after World War II and kept at his summer place in Maine. In the summer of 1959, when I was nine, he let me drive it up his long driveway to fetch the mail and over the blueberry fields. When he sold his place two years later, the jeep, alas, was put up for sale as well. Over the years, I’ve tried to find that exact jeep, so far in vain.

Engine: four-cylinder flathead, 134 cubic inches, 60 horsepower

1948 CJ-2A Crawford, Co $2200


This runs, but does need some work.

“I am selling a 1948 willys cj2a “lefty” Jeep!! There were less the 10,000 of these jeeps built one year. Willys put the spare tire on the drivers side instead of the passenger for a few months of production. The jeep does have some rust and body damage but can be fixed pretty easy.. the motor starts right up and seems to run good but the carburetor could use a rebuild. I put a new gas tank with sending unit in the jeep and also I have new canvas seats coming for the jeep… Jeep does need some TLC but would be a nice project to fix up for hunting or to do a full restoration… Please fell free to call me at (970-210-0680) for any question… Jeep is located in Crawford CO but I can deliver the jeep..”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Bayview, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Looks interesting.

“RARE FACTORY ORIGINAL uncut 1946 Agrijeep. It is faded, has some dents, sat in the sun, and is not running. Has all the correct original Willys brass plates. Is equiped with an original Willys ( Not Reproduction ) power take off on the rear and an original Willys Capstan winch with the original four bolt roller. The jeep is a barn find. I have the 1960 registration and will give a bill of sale for the vehicle. It has a 1946 winshield which is not the original windshield, but is correct for the jeep, it has a broken glass pane. The original three speed on the column was replaced with a four speed on the floor – it still has the column shifter. The jeep is well used but all original, it was found in a walnut orchard with aprox 30,000 ( on the odometer ) miles. It is complete – it is all there, but I do not know the condition of the engine / transmission. The tires are very faded and sun cracked – the tires appear to be the original tires from 1946. There are some additional parts that go with it, canvas top, doors, etc. I researched this jeep, a jeep like this sold on Ebay for $7,900

I know how much the original jeep accessories are worth ( I have researched the value of the PTO and Capstan Winch – a reproduction winch is $3,250 if you can find one. ) I have looked all over the internet and have not found another original Agrijeep anywhere at any price, other than the one mentioned above – There are plenty of STANDARD 1946 jeeps, most have been modified or cut up a lot. This is a very original and very rare Agrijeep. You won’t find another one.

I was offered $2500 for the original Capstan Winch and $1500 for the PTO. I am asking $4,000 for the jeep and accessories, the price is firm. I have taxes to pay, so have to sell the jeep, otherwise I would keep it. The jeep is sold ” as is, where is “.”

1948 CJ-2A Sold on eBay for $21,322


A reader wondered why the price was so high.  I wonder that too.
