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


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(02/10/10) I love the old top.  The rest looks a bit rough.

“I have owned this Willys for the last 38 year it has always been garaged. We have had many years of fun with our Willys Hunting, Fishing, and trail riding.

1946 CJ-2A Paintsville, Ky $10,200


This is an unusually painted Jeep.  I think the low res of the pics has pixelated this, making it look more unusual.

This jeep has been restored and is ready for summer car shows, parades or just to drive around. 3 speed with maximum speed of 45 miles per hour and is a definate eye catcher. This is for the true car collector who has a taste for something unique and spectacular. Must see to appreciate.”

1946 CJ-2A North Plains, Or $3800


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $3800.  Additional pics.

Lots of good updates to this CJ-2A, but a few issues, too.

“1946 willys jeep.  The good: buick 231 oddfire v6 runs great, 3 speed manual trans, warn overdrive;, d44 rear axle with posi and i was told 5:32 gears, d35 front axle with posi and 5:32 gears, soft top (could use a little work above the doors the stitching came loose), full soft doors, cb radio, full cage, newer tires and wheel 95%, bucket seats with 3pt harnesses, fire extinguisher, tow bar, old electric winch not fast but it works good, tow hooks, fresh paint (a few small chips in the door opening from getting in and out), power steering, the body isnt perfect but it is in good shape for being 64 years old. Only a few very small rust holes in the floor.

The bad: Turn signals are not hooked up. Something is wrong in the drivetrain i think it is the overdrive something is either worn out or the linkage is out of adjustment everything seems to shift fine except the overdrive. the problem is it wont stay in gear it will randomly work and drive fine then pop out of gear and not move until it decides it wants to. it should be an easy fix but i dont have the time. if i fix it i will be raising the price. this thing is small it is the main reason i am getting rid of it i am 6’4″ and have no leg room i can barely drive it.

I am asking $4600 the way it is. possible trade for yj or tj wrangler must be 4.0 5 spd, 92+ f-250 or f-350 reg cab long bed 4×4 preferably with a 460, 93+ ranger 4×4 preferably extra cab and manual trans, or a 60s-early 70s muscle car like chevelle, mustang, charger, nova, cougar, etc.  email or call 503-962-9559 if interested.”

1948 CJ-2A Grand Prairie, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $4100

(02/18/10) This looks pretty good. I’m betting some different springs have been added.  It sure doesn’t appear that their is enough length in the rear axle to properly handle the spring when it’s extended all the way.  However, that could just be an illusion.

“1948 Willys Jeep. Original body. New or Rebuilt..brakes, transfer case, trans, motor, carb, tires ans tubes, and much more. Buy it and drive it home!”

4 Flatfenders Palmdale, Ca **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $2800

The flatties are in OK to poor shape, but that CJ-5 is tweaked too much to be worth much, unless it’s got an overdrive or something else we can’t see.

“4 Four Willys Jeep project vehicles. Make two solid vehicles out of the four. Three appear to be Military. No record found at DMV, bill of sale only. First $2800.00 takes the lot. ”

1947 CJ-2A /M-38 Berthierville, QC, Canada eBay


Here’s another one courtesy of Jean-Sebastien. Bids have reached $9100.  No offense to the seller, but I don’t quite understand why someone would modify a ’47 into a M-38 at such a detailed level as this has been done? But, hell, I’ve done plenty of things that didn’t make any sense!

“This is a Collectors 1947 Willys Jeep  CJ2A modified to m38 with a military green paint job that is a year old. The seats were done year ago in green canvas. Jeep has a new go devil four cylinder motor that is green to match paint and was installed about year ago. Jeep runs great and has been garaged every winter. It comes with the one year old green canvas top. New unidirectional 7.00-16 Tires and green rims, Paint and Interior are in Great Condition. Everything has been replaced and redone from Brakes, Paint, Interior, Exhaust. The 4×4 works great with the 3 speed T90 transmission. I can provide more pictures on request.”

1946? CJ-2A? Newport, NH **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

I’m thinking this might be a M-38?  I think I see tool indents on the passenger side.  Those tires are pretty worn.

“Selling a original 1946 Jeep Willy that runs and drives for $5,000.00. Only modifications is it has been converted to 12 volt. Almost all parts are new only thing that needs work is the rocker panels and floor boards are rusted.”

1948 CJ-2A Englewood, Fl **Status Unknown**


UPDATE:  Last priced at $9500.

The Jeep looks nice enough, but let me remind potential buyers that 1. VE day was in May of 1945 and VJ day was in August of 1945; 2. 1948 comes after 1945 (umm .. this is self-evident, yes?); and 3., by the transitive mathematical property, this jeep, contrary to the seller’s claim, could not have played a role in WWII because it ended in 1945 and the jeep was produced in 1948.

“1948 Willys Jeep for sale!!! This car is in excellent condition and is a wonderful item for anyone who loves antique vehicles or wartime collectibles. This was used in WW2, but the engine has been replaced entirely, so its not just a lawn ornament. You can cruise town in this Willys. It is equipped with the canvas cover. Please contact me if you are interested. I’d love to show you the car or send you more pictures. Also, email me for more information on the vehicle; I’d be happy to answer your questions.”

Kevin & Steve Spot the same VEC CJ-2A While on Vacation

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

UPDATE: Kevin from the UK wrote me today to say that he spotted the same CJ-2A Kevin saw while on vacation on Maui in 2002.  Too funny!  He also took a picture and provided it for our viewing pleasure.  Thanks Kevin!

Steve was visiting Hawaii a few years ago and spotted this VEC CJ-2A on the island of Maui in Hawaii.  There can’t be too many of these on the island!

1946? VEC? CJ-2A Wendover, Ut $1000


Brett found another interesting deal in Utah.  The seller labels this a 1952, but it looks like a VEC CJ-2A to me.  It looks like it was also a column shift at some point.

“Sold As Is.  1952 CJ2A Jeep.  Has 2 motors needs install.  Asking 1000.00 or best offer.”

1946 CJ-2A Sterlington, La $2000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual

This needs some work, but looks pretty good.  It also looks like it has been stretched a bit in the front of the body and the front axles looks forward a bit too, suggesting this isn’t a standard frame.  Maybe it’s a truck or CJ-7 frame?

“This would be a great hunting and/or trail rig. It has a chevy 4.3 v6, power steering, duel exhaust, 31×10.50 mud tires with 95% tread, trailer hitch, 3 speed manual trans, and 2 stick transfer case. This Jeep has been put up for several years and could use some work. Here’s what I know it needs: The front diff needs new spider gears ($100.00 from 4wd.com), could use the right rear brake drum replaced, and needs a tune-up. The broken spider gears were removed and the axel was cleaned and refilled with oil, so it does drive. (318) 355-5223 if interested.
