1946 CJ-2A San Diego, Ca $750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_sandiego3This ad made me laugh, because the seller claims this “body has not rust”.  Now, the hat channels may in fact be in great condition and maybe it’s just my eyes, but isn’t there rust on this body?

“Great project or parts Jeep.No engine,trans or hood.One of the nicest body tubs I have ever seen.This body has no rust out,even the hat channels are solid.It’s a rolling chassis on 16″ wheels.Put your drivetrain in it or use the body on your Willys.No sense spending alot of time and money fixing up a rusty Jeep when you can get a rust free one.$750.858-705-1878”

1946 CJ-2A Dixon, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_dixonUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000

Lots of mods have been done to this jeep.  Though it sits a little high, the outboarded springs in the back should help improve the road stability.

“This is a 1946 Willys body on a Chevy frame with Chevy 350 four speed and drive train as you can see in the pictures. We did not clean or candy coated anything so that you can see what you are buying. This vehicle was bought about 3 years ago for hunting, off road and to be driven when ever and where ever. It doesn’t smoke, knock, shake or make any kind of noise and will take you any where you want to go. We don’t know what the milage is the odometer never worked.”

1947 CJ-2A Vallejo, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_vallejoUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

It looks like some remanents of bondo on the back driver’s quarter of the body.  Otherwise, the body doesnt’ look too bad for a parts jeep.

1947 CJ-2A Buffalo, NY $7400

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_buffaloI’m pretty sure the seller won’t get the asking price on this jeep.   I like that the seller is pretty honest about the paint job and can relate to the two foot disclaimer  (I’ve got a three foot rule for my paint job, lol).

“I purchased the Jeep in August of 1997. It already had the small block Ford in it but was just sitting in outside storage here for years abandoned. Loved it at first sight. I tracked down the owner and made him an offer after I changed the oil, put a new battery in and fired it up. It just purred. I put in my garage until about 2000. That’s when my father in law gave me a nice place to work on it…. ”

1947 Empire Tractor (uses Willys drive train) Drexel, Mo $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Machinery, MB, Unusual • TAGS: , .

1947_empiretractor_drexelWell here’s something I didn’t know, submitted by a reader.  Empire Tractors were built from parts that are also used by Willys, such as the transfercase (spicer 18), transmission (t-90), differential (spicer 25) and more.  You can learn more about the specs for these tractors here.  Note that the seller claims these were built out of surplus WWII jeeps, however the t-90 was a CJ-2A tranny, so it seems more likely to me that they shared parts with the CJ-2A rather than built from the MB.

“HERE WE HAVE A RARE 1947 EMPIRE TRACTOR. MODEL 88-90 MADE IN 11-47 SERAIL NUMBER 6352 IT WAS RESTORED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN KEPT INSIDE ALL IT’S LIFE. THIS HAS WILLYS JEEP ENGINE AND TRANS,AND ALOT OF OTHER JEEP PARTS IN IT,THAT ARE ORGINAL TO THE TRACTOR. THESE TRACTORS WERE BUILT AFTER WWII OUT OF SURPLUS ARMY JEEPS. THE PAINT SHOWS SOME WEAR . THE TIRES ON BACK ARE ORGINAL AND FRONTS HAVE BEEN REPALCED. COMES WITH ORGINAL LIGHTS AND GENERATOR IN A BOX. IT HAS HAD ONLY 3 OWNERS AND RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE IT SHOULD, READY TO USE OR SHOW. THIS COMES WITH A BELLY SICKLE MOWER,THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED IN 20 YEARS. 3500 FIRM. MY NUMBER IS 660-267-3282 THANKS FOR LOOKING”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_tuscon2UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1500.

This looks good for a $1500 running jeep.  I’d drop in a battery and starter before buying though.

“1948 Willys Jeep CJ2A,the Jeep will need a new starter,a battery to make it road worthy. The engine is in great shape, the tranny and the 4×4 are in great shape,the brakes system is in good shape,the jeep has new military tires size 16″,the steering system is not original and the tub will need some welding,but it is drivable as it is.”

1947_cj2a_wayzataUPDATE: This sold for $2,025 on 01/06/2009

I think the body on this looks in very good shape.  It looks like with some polish, the paint might be in pretty good shape underneath all that dust.

1947 CJ-2A Tacoma, Wa $900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  The price has dropped to $900 …

There might still be some value in this jeep.

“1947 Willys (Project Vehicle)with clear title. This would be a great project vehicle for someone that has the time, I don’t. I have had this in storage sense 1977 (last time it ran). It has a V6 engine that only had about 5K miles on it before going into storage. The rest of the power train is original 3speed, transfer case, etc. How ever at the moment I’m not able to turn the crank over by hand? It has been stored in a few locations, one garage having leaks. There for it also has its rust problems. I know it also needs a new brakeing system, mufflers, and windsheld, as well. E-mail or call 253 921-2153”

DJ-3A with a tailgate Huntsville, Al **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, DJ-3A

1955_dj3a_huntsvilleUPDATE:  **SOLD**

I include this jeep as it’s a rare example, in my opinion, of a DJ-3A with a tailgate.  I’ve heard these existed, but hadn’t had picture proof until I saw this one.  The thing that clued me in was the large speedometer.  Once I saw that, I went back and read the description.

“For Sale is my 1955-1964 DJ3A/CJ2A/CJ3A combo Jeep that I use on my Farm for general weekly transportation over the last several years. Jeep is stored inside my barn at all times on my farm. If you are looking for a show vehicle with matching numbers this is not the ride for you. However, if you are looking for a good solid original Willys flat fender Jeep driver for general use, read on. All body parts except the tool box are original Willys manufacture. Body tub, fenders, hood, tailgate, and front grill are original DJ3A that have had a paint job using Mil Standard Sherwin Williams OD CARC paint. Body tub is solid as the DJ3A had a full hard top which protected it from the normal weather related rust experienced by most soft top Willys vehicles…..”

1947 CJ-2A Fremont, CA $2200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_fremontHere’s a running flatfender that appears in good shape. The engine doesn’t look like much.  Good looking roll cage, though I prefer bars on the outer edges between the loops rather than just in the center.  If you have ever been jeeping in a tight spot and had the roll cage bar bump along a tree, you’ll know what I mean.  It’s too easy to catch a tree inbetween the two loops.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9999

“This is a very nice CJ-2A California jeep that is redone as a WWII Medic’s vehicle. This was my Dad’s Jeep which he purchased in California (where he lived) in the 60’s. I brought it to Pennsylvania last year and put a new exhaust, brake system and water pump on it along with a tune up and head gasket. New canvass summer top and front seat cushions. Has always been garaged here in PA. Runs, drives and stops like new. Has new radial tires and Overdrive which really makes driving it a joy.”
