UPDATE: Jim’s sharp eyes discovered this egregious attempt at illegally modifying the serial number of the data plate.  He  pointed out that there was an M38A1 data plate on the dash stamped as a CJ2A.

1947 CJ-2A Delran, Nj **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $2500.

The seller notes this has a “head turning paint job”.  I could suggest that it’s not my head that’s turning, but I try not to be so blunt.  If the seller reads this, I’d strongly suggest painting it green.  The value will increase.

“hello this listing is for a 1947 willys jeep i bought about 6 months ago and ive done some work to it but i just have to many toys soo this has to go it has the original flathead engine that runs great smokes a lil bit (rings) the 4 wheel drive works great so does the high and low range. it has a new fuel pump and the radiator was reconditioned and it has a head turning paint job!!! own a peice of history asking.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Shasta Lake, Ca **SOLD**

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

UPDATE:  **SOLD** .. and it is heading to Norway.  Congrats to James and to the new owner (whom I hope sends pics of it from Norway!). James wants to thank Ron from the G503 Site for helping out with this.

James has decided to sell his 1946 VEC CJ-2A #18526, column shift, driver’s indents, no rust. original docs and rear glass light.  It works great and is in fantastic shape.  He simply wants to have something he can modify and he doesn’t want to modify this CJ-2A because it is in such good shape.

James writes: It has original motor and all ACMs match 8057.  A lot of work was done in 1985 at  Archer Bros, Hayward. Motor wa rebuilt at 51k and is now at almost 62k.  There is no rust.  The springs and shackles not original; instead it has a superlift 2.5″.  The top bow side holders and rear corner brackets have been removed.  The front bumper mount has one ‘bubba weld’ and the rear bumper removed.  I have the original rear light, trailer socket cover, and vacuum wiper. There are rear ‘bubba’ 4″ cutouts for lights.  I’m the 4th owner and have lots of reciepts and docs.  The Original owner had it until  1985, the 2nd to 2007, the 3rd to last year then me.   This cj is a blast to drive and my family loves it, but I just can’t mod it like I want.  It has survived 63 years without any major mods and I don’t have the heart to start ripping it up now.

****SOLD ****

1946 CJ-2A Edwardsville, Ks **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The body on this might be in good condition.  I can’t quite tell from the pics.  With some paint (is it painted), this might look really good.

1940s CJ-2A? Nuevo, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: Still Available. Was $2500.

This might be a good price.  I’m wondering if it is a VEC CJ-2A.

“Jeep Willy’s 4 x 4 registered as a 1946 but has characteristics of 1941-42 military jeep. Needs water pump and starter as it grinds sometimes. Original L head 4 cylinder engine and tranny. Has tool boxes in back and a spare on the back. New battery. Love this jeep but have too many toys! Very fun to drive out in the desert. Reduced price from $3000.”

1948 CJ-2A Sister Bay, Wi $1500 includes OD **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD**    Robert purchased this deal. I didn’t notice before, but those are Desert Dog Tires (and I’m likely the only person who cares)!

I would image the Overdrive is probably is reasonable shape, potentially making this a decent deal, especially if the price drops.

“This is one of those projects that you never get around too. The rear spark plug is missing and it appears that the cylinder has collected water over the years so I am sure that the engine needs major work. the transmission shift does not move, no idea. It has an overdrive kit purchased through J. C. Whitney so there are four shifting levers, regular transmission, high low range, four wheel drive, and overdrive. The body has some surface rust and a few holes in the floor boards but basically sound. ”

1948 CJ-2A Hattiesburg, MS **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** $750.

It’s been modified in some unusual ways.

“1948 Willy Jeep, not running. Sitting on an early ’80s CJ frame with a Buick V6 under the hood. Ignition needs rewiring, and fuel tank/pump needs to be pulled and checked out/sealed. Will turn over, but couldn’t get it to fire with starter fluid. Bought it to fix up, but have since bought a new house and until I get a shop built at the new house, no room for all my projects. Comes with tow bar that is attached to the front and will throw in the ignition switches I purchased to install. It’s rough looking, but would make a fun project or hunting truck. Currently no fluid in the brake reservoir and I’m unsure on what they’ll need. No title, but I’ll provide a bill of sale along with the bill of sale I received and a copy of the last registered owner information that I have. That’s about everything I know about it. $750 obo. Will consider trades for an ATV, double door white refrigerator & cash (email dimensions), .45 cal pistol (looking for a Kimber ultra carry, but will consider others), tractor, box blade…..”

1940s CJ-2A Farmington, NM **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was  “Make Offer”

To the seller’s credit, they don’t sugar coat a couple of points,  including noting the decent body, ugly hood scoop built around the radiator, [and] really awful paint.

“CJ2A has been parked a long time, was running 4 years ago. Its a project but could make a good cheap hunting/ranch/camping/rock crawler. Has a rebuilt Ford V8, hanging peddle conversion, decent body, ugly hood scoop built around the radiator, really awful paint. I will include another hood, a correct gas tank, a heavy duty roll bar, a tow bar, military gas can with mount, a jeep 15 inch spare wheel and a factory tire carrier. No title, bill of sale only, sold as is, can help with delivery if not to far away or maybe for the cost of diesel if out of town. Would consider part trades for jeep stuff/parts, winch, military/hunting/cowboy stuff etc”

1948 CJ-2A Lincoln City, OR **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000

This looks like a great price.  This would probably make a good foundation for a project, given the updated motor, windshield, a good top, and misc parts.

“This is a 1948 Willy’s Jeep CJ2A. It is not ALL original, however, the body, transmission (T-90 manual 3 speed), transfer case, shifters, seats, and windshield are. It also has a rear tow hitch and front tow bar so you may tow it away behind another vehicle. The transmission may be 61 years old, but it still runs and shifts like a champ. It includes aftermarket roll bar, top, swinging jerry can and tire rack, and an almost new exhaust system (dual cherry bombs). The brakes were recently re-done. The engine is a 1964 225 V6 Buick engine with a Rochester single barrel carburetor which was recently re-built. There is no way to tell how many miles are on the engine, as it is not original. It can really move if it needs to. As of right now, the transmission has been dropped, as the clutch has gone out, and will need to be replaced before it can run. I’m not sure which clutch it needs, a Buick or Jeep, as the transmission is original and the engine is not. Tail lights, head lights, blinkers, and hazard lights all work. There is no fuse box, but several in-line fuses have been installed. It’s a shame for me to have to sell this old Jeep, but I simply don’t have the time nor the money to restore it to is original beauty.”

1947 CJ-2A Wichita Falls, Tx **SOLD**


1947_cj2a_wichitafallsUPDATE:  Was $2000. **SOLD**

It looks good on the outside, but sounds like it could use a little bit of maintenance.  The windshield frame looks bent.

“1947 CJ2A for sale. This jeep is perfect for the deer lease or as a starter for a frame up restoration. It has some needs but it runs great and has had a ton of work done in the past year. It could use some transmission work (pops out of second on occasion), a new exhaust manifold, some gaskets replaced to slow a few leaks, and some metal work on the floor pans but it shouldn’t need anything if you want to use it on the trail or at the deer lease. In the past year, I replaced the intake manifold, distributor cap and wires, rebuilt the starter, rebuilt the generator, replaced the shocks, replaced all of the seat cushions and the back seat frame, put on new brake shoes and replaced brake lines, replaced the brake master cylinder, rewired most of the jeep, replaced the gas tank and fuel hose to the carburetor, stripped off all of the old paint and gave it a garage paint job for protection. It starts right up every time and runs great for a 1947”

This looks like a decent price on some flattie parts.  If you are looking for corner and side diamond plating, it appears it comes with them (though it’s installed).

1947 CJ-2A Stoughton, Wi eBay


Here’s a mix and match jeep that sounds like it’s had a bunch of modifications.

“I’m re-listing my 1947 WIllys CJ-2A. This is a super nice, restored Willys that you can drive anywhere or it also has a really nice towbar that goes with it so you can drive here to pick it up and tow it home! It has a clear Wisconsin title but it is titled as a 1960 CJ-5.    This Willys was completely tore down to the frame about 12 years ago and professionally rebuilt.    The 1960 CJ-5 frame number matches the title.   Odometer actually shows about 5,800 but I’m listing this as under 10,000 miles because of tire size. Drivetrain is a rebuilt Buick 231 cu. in. V-6 with a rebuilt Turbo 350 automatic transmission.   Engine has an HEI distributor.   It has a Lokar street rod shifter.   Carburetor is a Holley 390 cfm four barrel on a 4.1 Buick aluminum intake.  Heads and intake are port matched.  It has fender well headers and dual exhaust….”
