Year? CJ-2A? Mabelvale, Ar $500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride

A big project yes, a “good project”?  I don’t think so.  If only character was valuable, this might just fetch $35k at a Barret auction.

“Not sure what year it is. Has a motor in it, but would need work. Good Project.

1946 CJ-2A Arizona **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $35,750.

Bill spotted this …  as he suggested, sit down …. the auction estimate was $12,000 – $17,000 which in itself is an inflated price in my opinion.  However, this past weekend this franken jeep sold for $35,750.

“63 hp, 134.2 cu. in. flathead four-cylinder engine, Carter carburetor, three-speed manual gearbox with low-range, four-wheel drive with live axles front and rear with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 80″

– From the Bill Jacobs Collection
– Only 578 miles since total nut-and-bolt restoration
– Original Forest Service Jeep with shovel and axe included
– 4WD with low range, trailer hitch, full gauge package

The 1946 Jeep offered here is beautifully finished in white. It was reportedly the property of the US Forest Service and carries the appropriate axe and shovel. It was the subject of an extremely detailed two-year restoration in 2001 by Jim Neirynck of Macomb Township, Michigan.”

There’s some value here.  Looks like a good cage and the body appears solid too.

“This is a 1948 CJ2A with a clear title. It is sitting on a DJ frame and has a center mount Dana 44 rear end. The floor boards are rusted but the toolbox and dash are good. The windshield frame,hood, fenders and grille are also good. Pretty nice rollcage. No drivetrain.”

1946 CJ-2A New Mexico $7500


Mike asked me to post his 1946 CJ-2A for sale.

He writes, “It’s been rebuilt from the ground up, almost all original, and runs and climbs like a damn billy goat! The windshield is off a newer willys, the previous owner did this. I put in the new gauges.

The previous owner had a 1/2 inch solid square steel rod installed around the edge, he said he thought the steel was flimsy there, and when he took his grandkids wheelin’, when they were climbin in and out of the Willy’s he wanted it stronger and more rigid. Very nicefully done.”

1946 CJ-2A Mason, Tx eBay …. Museum Quality?


This appears to be a solid jeep that was restored with care.  But, to label this ‘museum quality’ is, well, to put it gently — with great restraint — is inaccurate (for starters, too many non-original parts).  Also, ‘Light Green’ is not one of three colors of a 1946 CJ-2A of that vintage (that is, post vin#38221); instead there were 6 color schemes (all listed at the CJ-2A Page’s history section).

“For sale is a restored 1946 Willys Jeep CJ2A.  The Jeep’s body and visible parts were restored to show quality.  All engine parts were kept spec.  Jeep runs great and is stored in a garage all year long. The following is a list of stock parts and upgrades: Complete engine restoration, New windshield, New gauges, New Paint (1946 Light Green) one of 3 original colors, 4 New Non-Directional Tires, New gas tank, New brakes (Hand brake also works).  Odometer was not working when the vehicle was bought.  It is unknown how long the odometer was not working.  Odometer has since been fixed.  Approximately 50 miles or less on the restored motor.

1947 CJ-2A Centerville, Ut $1150


Brett spotted this fine.  It looks pretty solid.  I’m not sure if this runs or not.  It doesn’t seem as complete as the seller believes.  Maybe there are parts in a box somewhere?

“1947 Willys CJ-2A. Solid jeep, great starting point for restoration, or finish the wiring, add some seat cushions and use it as is. I’ve restored a couple of the WWII era military jeeps (MB & GPW) over the years. This was going to be my first CJ restoration, but my current work schedule isn’t going to allow time for it.

You don’t find many this complete and unmolested anymore. Check out the photos and feel free to call or email with any questions. Thanks! Chris (801) 831-0741”
