1948 CJ-2A Mineola, Tx **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This has a few unusual features.  (1) Note the location of the 2nd battery, (2) note the “Power Train” hubs [I don’t recognize this brand] and (3) the interesting location/position of the heater.

“Up for auction is ‘Ol Fred, my very rare 1948 Willy’s Overland CJ2A. Purchased two years ago, and has been stored indoors ever since. A restoration was done by previous owner.. not so much as to “show” the vehicle, but to use it. Drives like a new Jeep. This vehicle is extremely tight. The Original Go-Devil L-Head 60bhp engine runs perfectly, as does the Original 3-speed transmission. Shifts like new. Complete Drivetrain was overhauled. The Transfer Case is equipped with drive pulleys for running external implements such as water pumps, generators, etc. New Brakes. Still runs original 6 volt system with additional 6 volt battery…..”

1948 CJ-2A Mira Mesa, Ca **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD — Purchased by an eWillys Reader**  The reader got a great price (under $2k).  It had very little rust.  Receipts totaled $8k worth of work and included parts in boxes never installed.

(01/15/09) The above price is meant as a starting point.  The seller will negotiate.  It needs to leave the garage.  It’s got some updates and new tires & wheels.

“If interested – make me an offer. My Jeep needs to go… Great Jeep, but Needs work – You want this Jeep, but you need to have the means, place, ability to work on it. (or pay someone to).  1948 CJ2A – runs, has great heavy duty tires/new wheels (tires/wheels > $1000).  1976? Ford 2.3L 4-cyl engine runs good (new camshaft).  very, very little deep rust. new radiator & electric cooling fan.  Stock transmission, transfer case.  11” drum brakes all around.  GM steering column and steering gear …. I spent $$$$ having this Jeep “gone through”, however the synchronizers were not replaced so you have to double clutch or you will grind gears shifting down. The transfer case still leaks some, so that may need attention also, but everything is “supposed” to be sound  …. Price is negotiable. I put what I would like to get as a starting price, you can feel free to make me an offer .  The jeep has loads of sentimental value, but I need it gone… 🙁   ….. ”

1943 CJ-3A (?) Rawlins, Wy $600


1948_cj2a_rawlinsUPDATE:  The price has dropped to $600.  This is looks like a good price.  It even runs (if you hook up the gas tank).

Either the year or the model is wrong.  I’m gonna guess this is either a highly mashed jeep (maybe a 43 frame with CJ-3a body parts and a CJ-2A windshield) or a 1948-9 CJ-2A.

“1943 cj3a with the orignal 4 cyl f head engine. gas tank is unhooked but it runs if you hook it up again. most mechanical work has been taken care of and it has several new parts. everything other than the suspention is original as far as i can tell.the body needs work and so does the interior, but if your looking for a cool old jeep and a great project this is the jeep for you. if you have any questions feel free to call me at 307-321-0612 I can deliver, but it will cost gas and milage.

1948 CJ-2A Wenatchee, Wa $1000


This is a project, but based on the parts list,  it sounds like it might be worth the price.  The front clip looks like it is fiberglass. I would guess the truck tranny is either a sm420 or sm456.  It’s difficult to see whether it would really only take a couple hours to make this run.

“48 cj2a, rebuilt 283, never started. Chevy truck 4 speed, rebuilt x-case, diff’s rebuilt W/11 in drums instead of 9. This jeep just needs finished. The front clip is almost worth what I’m asking. Realistically with a couple of hours you could be runnin. Wife said it’s gotta go. # is 630-6601, Price is negotiable. Thanx fer lookin.”

1948 CJ-2A Duluth, MN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2900.

“Hunting season is here! Classic 1948 Willys CJ 2A “Civilian Jeep” Original 4 cyl 134 ci “Go Devil” engine and 3 Speed manual T-90 transmission. The engine, transmission, clutch, 4WD, transfer case, high/low range and lights are all in working condition. The body is extremely solid. The floor pans have been patched. It has the 6 volt electrical system, with an electric fuel pump. It has a little play in the steering and the typical fluid drips and leaks for a CJ2A of this vintage.  Although it’s not perfect, it’s in much better shape than a lot of the older Jeeps that are available on the market. Come and take a look – you know you’ve always wanted one! Located in Duluth.”
