1949 CJ? Montgomery, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was $500. **SOLD**

Check out the rear end on this jeep. If that’s a modification, then when it was done, it was done nicely (now it’s a bit beat up). If that’s original, then it is rare!  I’ve done some searches, but they haven’t yielded any suggestion that this is a production length….

“I am selling a 1949 willys jeep it was running last yaer and I was going to overhaul the moter just never got around to it this jeep is in great shape.

Fiberglass tub and front clip, St. Maries, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $550

It says it’s never been used, but it looks like the front clip was ready to be installed.  If it is in as good as shape as advertised, then this is a great price.

“Willy’s Jeep CJ2A, CJ3A, or MB Fiberglass Tub with Steel Fenders, grill, & tailgate. It’s never been used, no cracks – good shape! Also has a fiberglass tailgate included. There is a frame included if you want it.”

1949 CJ-2A Tacoma, Wa $5500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

It looks like a nice jeep.  If it is really a 1949 CJ-2A (rather than a CJ-3A), than it’s one of only 2182 produced that year.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This jeep’s body looks pretty straight.  It looks like there is a muffler on the driver side, but none on the passenger side?

1948 CJ-2A Eugene, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1599

Given this is a non-running project that has had some mods done to it, the price is a little high.  I don’t see any obvious rust on the body and the back looks pretty straight, but I can’t see much more from these pics.

“1948 Willys cj2a project needs a new home. Not running. Needs starter. Painless wiring kit partially installed. New gauges. New ignition switch. Do not have time to complete. Must sell”

James’ newest find …

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features

James found this cj-2a with a m38 body on Craigslist for $2,000.  He pounced on it immediately.  I'm not sure how I missed it during my searches!  Just goes to show I can't find them all.

This is an excellent find, especially since the body is in excellent condition reports James.  It's also one of the best California deals I've seen …

1946 VEC CJ-2A New Jersey $1000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

Here’s an early CJ-2A with the column shift. The seller doesn’t not indicate whether it runs or not, but it looks whole — it looks like it might run.  Obviously, the hood and windshield are a bit rough.

“For sale is a 1946 Willys with early column shift.”

1950 CJ-3A Cypress, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

This jeep appears fully equipped for trail running.  Interesting reversal of spring pads — the back shocks sit inside the springs rather than the outside. I assume this has to do with the expanding shackles on the back.  The seller lists this a CJ-2A, but the last CJ-2A produced was in 1949.  

"This is a 1950 Willy's Jeep Rock Crawler with the following offroad modifications: Front Rock Crawler Bumper with Tow Bar and Clevis Rings, storage boxRockcrawler rear bumper with spare tire swing out carrier and gas can carrier Buick 231 motor, oversize "burma"radiator, hoses, new valve cover gaskets, headers, straightpipes, new/rebuilt 4 barrel carburator, high volume adjustable oil pump, new distributor, cap rotor, plugs, competition cam, new alternator,water pump, and thermostat. New twin electric fans controlled from cab(one kicks on at 195 degrees).

Willys Rustbucket Pennsylvania $500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Last Ride • TAGS: , .

This is one of the most rusted flat fenders I think I've ever seen.  Next, I noticed the rear PTO water pump, which was cool.  Then I noticed the solid back — no tailgate, yet the body doesn't look like a MB/GPW.  It's hard for me to believe that this jeep rusted so much while in storage. 

"Willys,4 x 4. NO TITLE. year unknown, needs complete resto. has drivetrain intact. rear water pump pto driven. was in storage for 25 years until last week…. coalbiz2001@hotmail.com"

Reader Pix — David’s Parents at the Sand Dunes

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, News

A reader named David has shared an old picture of his parents racing around the sand dunes in what looks to be a CJ-2A.  This picture is a good reminder that you don't need a fancy jeep to go out and enjoy a day in the sand.  David will be sending a few more pictures along with some background text soon.  Thanks David!

1953(?) Willys Denver, Co $5000 w/ trailer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

I’m gonna guess this is a 1953 CJ-3A with a 2A windshield and a MB grille. It looks like it needs a few more details completed than the seller lists.

“1953 Willys Jeep with Trailer.  $5000 or Make me an offer… I have not run this jeep since I began restoration, but it ran well before I began. It does have overdrive. I am including all the parts to make it look like a 1945 Willy’s. It still needs the seat cushions and speedometer. It will need to have the gas tank hooked back up as well. Has a 6 volt system. Both Jeep and Trailer have been sand blasted and painted. Pintail hook and regular ball trailer adapter is included for the trailer. Trailer has a hill brake.”

1946 CJ-2A Conway, Mass No Price

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride, Unusual

The ad for this jeep is pretty funny.  Note the comment "No Rot".  Now, look at the pic — somewhere along the line there must have been some rot (unless that wooden box seat was a rare factory option)!
