1946 CJ-2A La Porte, In **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

(04/24/2011) It’s a project.

“I have an Authentic Willy’s Jeep CJ2-A from 1946. We have the windshield frame, pto, two newly restored seats, Willy’s stamped hood, the body, along with five military tires. The engine was stamped by Willy’s and is a flat-head four cylinder. The front fenders are in great shape and one has a hood latch.

1946 CJ-2A Savannah, Tn eBay


I suspect the VIN on this is just under 30,000?  I’m a little surprised that both the dataplates and the vin plates are missing.  I also think those are the ford rims that don’t have the proper center size.

“This Jeep is truly a barn find. The body is in great condition and the chassis needs building. Theres only minimal rust but the engine is probably locked up. The transmission shifts and it does roll. I bought it to put the body on a chassis that I had rebuilt. This Jeep has the rare column shift that shifts fine. Floorboards are good, frame is good but it just needs alot of attention. I just dont have time to finish my project. Title in hand. Been in a barn all its life till I bought it. Its been in a warehouse since.”

1946 CJ-2A Kalispell, MT **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $750

It looks like there is value here.  Note the seller will throw in an overdrive for another $250.

“1946 CJ-2A.  This vehicle does not currently run, it’s a project. The previous owner said it ran great until the trans broke. The transmission (T-90) is out of the vehicle and needs rebuilding. The input shaft is damaged. The brakes are non-existent and the is some rust but not too bad.

This CJ has been modified with a Saginaw steering box and a 12 volt conversion. The hood and windshield frame depicted in the first photo are no longer on the vehicle. The hood was poorly repaired with bondo and the windshield frame was rusted badly. I have since found a better hood and windshield frame, they will be included with the sale of the vehicle. Additional modifications include the installation of a later F-head engine with a low-profile Holley carb. This carburetor is desirable as it allows you to keep the stock hood without cutting a hole in it for air-cleaner clearance. The carb has been rebuilt, the fuel-pump (glass-bowl type) has been cleaned and inspected.

I also have a Warn overdrive for this CJ and I will include it for an additional $250. The OD is not available separately; I’ll let the entire package go for $1000 firm. The tires and wheels may also stay with me depending on the results of the CJ-3B sale. This CJ will have the wheels and tires from the 3B should this sell before the 3B does. I’m keeping one of these Willys but two is kind of too much (I’m told).”

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).
