The fenders are good and the windshield has good glass. It is #14901. Great project. I am asking 900 cash. I would consider partial trades but need at least 600 cash with the trade.”

Nellybelle II 1946 CJ-2A Cave Creek, AZ **Status Unknown**

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

UPDATE: The original NelleBelle sold for $116,000 at Christie’s in the summer of 2010, which is much higher than the $20k-30k it was estimated it would bring.

Jim forwarded this for our viewing pleasure.  So if I understand this correctly, this is a replica of Nellybelle, but wasn’t actually in the show?  You can learn much more about NellyBelle and Roy Rogers and the CJ-3B Page.

‘This is the 1946 Willys CJ-2A Jeep named NELLYBELLE II, and made to replicate the jeep NELLYBELLE from the ROY ROGERS TV show from the 1950’s. It has been on display at the Roy Rogers/Dale Evans Museum in Branson,Mo. This is a piece of History of the 50’s Hollywood television history. It’s in excellent condition as it was at the museum as it has been garaged since we bought it. It starts fine but will smoke some,tires are a little dry.Has new brakes and drums, a new fuel pump. Beautiful piece of memorabilia to expose at parades,auto show,etc..”

1947 CJ-2A Indianapolis, IN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $11,995.

This looks like a beautifully restored CJ-2A. The MC engine indicates this (the head or engine) was originally out of a M-38.

“Thanks for viewing my auction, I am selling with NO RESERVE,  my 1947 Willys Jeep CJ2A. This Jeep was restored 7 years ago. Every nut and bolt was removed. All components on this Jeep have been disassembled, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished and or replaced. It is painted in the original Willys colors of Normandy Blue with Sunset Red wheels with black stripe. The vehicle was done by Professional automotive technicians who specialize in Willys restorations. The cost to correctly restore a CJ2A would exceed 25,000.00. My starting bid is 11,995.00

There are no modifications that have been made to this Jeep, There are some places where there were stainless nuts and bolt were used instead of steel. The body is a replacement steel body, It does include the PTO with hard to find safety guard and Monarch governor. The governor to carburator rod has been removed , but is included with the Jeep, along with the original top bows however no canvas is included.

The paint is PPG base clear also included is the left over paint for touch if required.

This jeep starts, runs and drives like a new 1947 CJ2A, It has only 500 miles since this complete restoration, you are welcome to come and see it, no disappointments here.  The engine number (behind the water pump) is MC75860.

1946 CJ-2A Le Claire, Wi **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“1946 Willys CJ2A in original almost rustfree condition, there is slight surface rust on the under body and one spot of rust on a hat channel at one of the mounting bolts. The inner windshield has rust around the glass area and probably could be replaced. The body itself has normal farm use dents and dings but nothing serious and would be a easy restoration, the area around the side holes are probably the worst they had a rubber cover bolted to both of them see picture, I have had it about 20 years and enjoyed it as is. Mechanically it runs great and everything works, including the originak key coil switch, has normal leaks at some of the seals. The brake lines wheel cylinders and master cylinder have all been replaced. The seats have powder coated frames and replacement cushions covered with vynil, the rear seat is a reproduction. Original seat pans springs and coverings go with the Willys. Wheels are powder coated with white vynil strpes and almost new non directional tires. I believe the Willys a has about 29,000 miles as it has on the speedometer. The wireharness could stand replacing, horn button doesn’t work but the horn does, windshied glass is a litttle scratched. The Willys comes with a complete all original Monroe three point hitch with a motor mounted hydraulic pump not installed.PTO with rear gear box and farm belt pulley and governor,V belt pulley for generator or welder, belt driven buss saw I believe it’s a Newgren and a peson that has a Newgren saws the brass tag is right. Front bumper weight, complete operational Linkbelt capstan winch with most original parts, rope roller assy is a reproduction and winch drive bracket is fabricated from steel and works well. Also has original owners manual, chaff screen, and complete set of top bows.”

1946 CJ-2A Canyon County, Ca eBay


This *might* have an interesting history.  Someone mentioned to me (I can’t remember who) that either Roy or his museum had several Jeeps, so this very well could be one of those.  It looks like it had very little use.  Just look at how nice the front frame rail and bumper looks.

“This is a relatively unmodified Jeep that runs and drives with relatively no known major mechanical defects. See notes below.

98% Rust free Southern California Jeep. Still has six-volt electrical system and all original brake components. I’ve owned this Jeep about 8 years and it has been used as a parade Jeep in a local July 4th parade as well as Christmas light tours.

The previous owner said the Jeep was owned by the movie studios in the 1970s and may have been one of three Jeeps used on the Roy Rogers show. I was told that they used 3 Jeeps – the original NelleBelle, a stunt Jeep and a long distance shot Jeep. Supposedly this was the long distance Jeep. I have never been able to verify these facts,  however, at some point it was pained light gray exactly like NelleBelle. Remember TV was black and white then.

It currently has 15 inch wheels but I’m including 5 sand-blasted 16 inch original Willys’ wheels and some reproduction tail lights.

Positive aspects:
• Frame is 100% original with straight uncut frame horns on the front.
• Exterior body panels straight with no rust out.
• This Jeeps starts up and runs and drives.
• Excellent collector Jeep that can be easily restored.

The following items are not original Jeep parts:
• Tail lights
• Wheels
• Mirror
• Some gauges
• Seat cushions

Known defects:
• The engine has a deep growling noise. It does not seem to be a rod bearing or anything like that. With the fan belt disconnected, the noise is still there. I have no idea what the noise is. it is inside the engine.
• The Dualamatic Overdrive has severe gear noise.
• The passenger side rear wheel well was poorly repaired at some point.
• Minor oil leaks.
• Channel under passenger side floor has some rust-through.
• Radio cut out in dash
• Tail light cut-outs”

*This has rust and is not in restorable shape* It has been my daily driver for over 9 months. I have recieved about 4 calls and the first question being asked is “Does the tub have rust”. Please consider the cost of the parts included which is well above what I am asking for this fun old willys. Thanks.

This was my daily driver until the electrical went out. In the process of replacing the solenoid, coil and distributor the old 6 volt starter went out. New Solex carb, distributor, coil, solenoid, tie rod set, front knuckle seals, tranny seals, transfer seals, front and rear diff seals, spark plug wires, clutch bell crank kit, brake pedal, clutch cross shaft and new master cylinder. Also included are 4 new shackles with LH and RH thread to replace the “redneck’ lift. A set of new 4 Ubolts for the rear axle. There is a new set of front 8 leaf springs which were supposed to be rear ones but Crown sent the wrong ones. I wanted to change out the wrong rear springs. Radiator needs to be patched driver’s side bottom and a new choke cable along with the starter problem.”
