1946 CJ-2A Delray Beach, Fl $11,000


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $11,000

(03/21/2011) This is a pretty rig.  It’s mostly stock, though there are a few changes.  One of them is that the windshield arms have been swapped in a clean manner for differently shaped arms.  I thought the idea to put the lights under the rear was a creative solution to keep from drilling lights into the body; however, if they will take a pretty good pounding in dirty or gravel from flying rocks or dirt or water.

“This 1946 Willys CJ2A was completely restored and runs like a Swiss watch!   Less than 1,000 miles of recently rebuilt flathead 4 cylinder engine.  Carb rebuilt.  All seals replaced, no leaks.  4×4, hubs, transfer case and transmission all in top-notch condition.  New paint job — a real head-turner!  New military tires.  It breaks my heart to part with this Jeep, but I’m having to relocate for work and can’t take it with me.  My loss is your gain!  Happy to answer any questions you have.  Please call 561-450-7524 or email mediarazzi@gmail.com.”

Early Rusted CJ-2A Images Heathcote, Ontario, Ca

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features • TAGS: .

I ran across these images today of a rusted CJ-2A.  The photos were taken in 2008 by Dave Scottin Heathcote, Ontario, Canada, and posted on Flickr.  Check out the governer throttle along with the 3 datatplates.  I think this sitting in a junkyard or in an area with other rusted vehicles.  If you scroll over the map on Flickr, you can see exactly where it is.  I think there might even be some useful parts on this, too.  Given the governor throttle, I wondered if it might have a rear PTO (Click on the 3rd photo and I think you will see the top of a cutoff PTO lever).  You can even almost make out the serial number on the data plate (click on image 2).

1947 CJ-2A with extended rear Ramona, Ca **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** was on eBay

This is very interesting.  The rear on this seems similar to the rear extension on yesterday’s lead Colorado jeep.  The seller believes this is an ambulance.  I searched for an example of CJ-2A ambulance, but have yet to find any images that verifies one was built (though I’ve seen other extended CJ-2As). It seems more like a utility rig to me, especially given what appear to be utility racks above.  I also believe the lack of a siren (or spot on the roof where one was mounted), also suggests it wasn’t an ambulance.  None-the-less, the starting bid of $650 is a good price and  it would be an interesting rig to restore.  The seller provides a great, detailed review of this.

“I have never seen another jeep exactly like this. Its pretty rare. It is a left hand drive (so, its clearly not a postal jeep), its a flat fender, 4 wheel drive Willys jeep with an extended body and ambulance racks. (I do have a similar Swedish Jeep included in the photos for reference.) It needs restoration.

The metal tub is extended 24” and looks to be all original work from the time of manufacturing, it is well done and very unique. The extension is aft of the rear wheels as pictured.

The most amazing aspect of this jeep is the aircraft style aluminum top (“Tin Top”, if you will).  The top has what I am told are stretcher ‘stays”. We were told this is an ambulance, and by all appearances, it would function as an ambulance. The top itself is original to the jeep and done professionally, its solid and riveted to perfection.

The top has functioning aluminum side storage doors and rear body aluminum storage doors that open and lock (as pictured). The top interior has metal caged storage areas, all are sturdy and have been in place about 60 years, holding up to the test of time!

The lower body is steel with age appropriate and reparable rust, but has been in California for many years and much of it is surface rust. The floor board rust and a couple other rust areas will need more elbow grease and restoration than other areas and is more than surface rust. You have to ask me questions on this and look at the photos as some of the rust will need actual rust repair. I want you to know the needs of this project so that you are happy with your purchase.

The front grill is temporarily attached for engine replacement, it will need to be bolted back in properly.

The original tail gate is in tact and functioning.

The original tilt-out windshield frame is there, minus the glass (you guys know how easy this is to get replaced).

All original gauges are there (no broken glass!)

All original latches (windshield, seat, etc.) are present

Original drivers seat is present and functioning (needs restore)

Passengers seat present (original?)

Original gas tank

Original shifter levers

Original 4×4 transfer case

Original Axles

Original Transmission

Original Two Piece Hood

Original fenders

Original Tub

Original Steering Wheel

Original Steering Gear

Original aluminum “sun visor” (over windshield area)

Military Style Pintle hitch  mount in rear

Tow Bar attached to the front

Has 5 on 5.5 Jeep lugs will need new tires, but rolls freely as is

Will need new brakes, original brake cylinder is in place

Mechanical:  The axles, transfer case and transmission are all in the jeep.  Both driveshafts have been removed, but the original rear driveshaft and also, 1/2 of the front driveshaft are both included in a large box of parts that go with the Jeep. You guys know you can get these driveshafts with ease.

The engine is not installed but is included as well. It was removed for restoration (so that part of the job is already done!). It will need obvious restoration, but is not clearly not seized as the crank is out of the block. If I were to complete the project, I’d give it an acid bath and re-assemble. You will have to purchase a single rod and piston (which is available at “Border Parts” in San Diego), plus purchase the correct fly wheel (there is a fly wheel, but it does not appear to be correct), everything else is present including motor mounts and the head (as pictured). The engine is what I was told to be the original engine. It is a Willys flat head 4, has an original 1958 job tag riveted to the block (see pictures).

The attached engine job tag shows 2 cylinders, 1 rod and one main bearing was replaced in 1958 (again, see the pictures of the metal riveted on job tag).

The camshaft and valves are still in the block.  Also included are 3 rod and piston assemblies, the crankshaft, main bearing blocks, side valve cover, manifold, exhaust, oil pan, head, etc.


We can not know the actual mileage as the paint has faded.

At some point in the past, a pipe vise was added to the front bumper, it can easily be removed.  Also, barely visible below the driver’s windshield is a red stenciled ” FIVE STAR GENERAL” .  No, I don’t believe it was a real 5-star general, just a guy who was very happy with his unique jeep.

This Jeep is sold with a bill of sale only, it is a collectible and will need to be restored before going on the road, however, both VIN tags are attached as photographed, this will be an easy registration (and NO smog required :).”
