1946 CJ-2A Woodland, Ca **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  A reader reports this has been sold.

This appears to be a very nice rig and I think it’s a very good value given it’s got a stainless steel chrome windshield. I’m pretty sure the seller means sm420 tranny.  Interestingly, the very top pic on the bulletin board shows an external fan attached to the outside of the grille.   I don’t know if that’s a new feature or an old one, but it would suggest there might be cooling problems.

“Thinking about selling the wifes rig. She never drives it and Im tired of seeing it sit. $4000 obo.  200 miles on new chevy 350, hyper pistons, small cam, 1.6:1 roller rockers, 4bb quadrajet carb. 31″ tires, 95% tread.

1947 CJ-2A Austin, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1947_cj2a_austinUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800

I’m pretty sure this is parts jeep given the poor condition of the body.

“Old ranch jeep. Bought a year ago and never touched it. Rust in some areas, worst near the side steps by the driver and passenger seats. Other areas not so much rust. Glass in windshield intact. New fuel tank. Does not run and no title. All major components seem to be there. With a little work should run. Email for photos or questions. Thx – Ben”

1947 CJ-2A Skiatook, Ok $10,600 **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_skiatookWhile updating the ebay results page, I ran across the following jeep.  It’s a CJ-2A made up to look like a MB/GPW.  On ebay, it sold for a winning bid of $10,600.  I’m a bit shocked it sold for that much.

“1948 WILLYS CJ2A JEEP, SN/CJ2A 181994, refurbished to look like a WWII MB military jeep (don’t get me wrong, it is NOT a WWII military jeep) only made to look like one. It would be great for parades or WWII re-enactments. It does have a working military style fender blackout light, military style grill blackout marker lights, MB style spare tire rack, WWII style fuel can with holder, bumperettes, MB style side and corner handles, WWII style tandem hand wipers, military style foot starter, new front OD canvas seats with WWII style seat back pockets, stars, USA lettering and 5 new 6 ply WWII style NDT tires (non-directional tread, pulls just as good in reverse as in forward)….”

1947 CJ-2A Boaz, Al eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride • TAGS: .

This might be one of my favorite all-time body pictures.  Can you imagine what it took to damage the cowl and dashboard? The seller suggests you might need to get the body replaced, but I’m thinking the body is the best part.

“Serial number 109850. This jeep was built around 1947.  willys built around 240,000 of these jeep from 1945 until 1949.  the serial number of this jeep (109850) shows that it was built around 1947 according to production figures from the willys jeep homepage on the net. The jeep is complete, it runs very well and drives well also. the jeeps body is very rusty , with lots of damage. i would say that the body would need to be replaced;however, the engine, transmission, drivetrain is in good , operating condition. this jeep is in original conditon with all oringinal componets.”

1947 Frankenstinian Monster – Manchester, Ct **SOLD**

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

1947_cj2athingUPDATE:  This sold for $698

An eWillys reader somehow found this in the ‘other makes’ section of ebay Motors.  It made me laugh, so I have posted this for your Sunday amusement.  Even though the starting bid is only $99, there are no bids.

“… The complete, unaltered 4WD drivetrain from that 1947 Willys Jeep: engine, tranny, transfer case, front & rear drive, suspension, steering, cooling system, etc. was installed on a homemade (C channel) frame. Most of the body, tilt bed & plow were also homemade. I must say, while “strange”, (owner is a carpenter), everthing is “well built”….. “

1946_cj2a_denver3Doesn’t look too shabby.

“Real nice CJ2A with a Super Sonic 6cyl engine. This Jeep has new brake system, new radiator, rebuilt starter, heater and wipers work. It also has a recent tune-up and great top. It does need tires and seat cushions. I’d keep it, but I’m too large to get in and out of it comfortably. Will trade for Jeep Cherokee of equal value.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $3000

Who needs a bored out monster engine to climb rocks?  I’m always amazed at these modified jeeps that still run L-head engines.  This CJ-2A looks to be wearing an MB/GPW body.

1946 CJ-2A San Diego, Ca $750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_sandiego3This ad made me laugh, because the seller claims this “body has not rust”.  Now, the hat channels may in fact be in great condition and maybe it’s just my eyes, but isn’t there rust on this body?

“Great project or parts Jeep.No engine,trans or hood.One of the nicest body tubs I have ever seen.This body has no rust out,even the hat channels are solid.It’s a rolling chassis on 16″ wheels.Put your drivetrain in it or use the body on your Willys.No sense spending alot of time and money fixing up a rusty Jeep when you can get a rust free one.$750.858-705-1878”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_dixonUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000

Lots of mods have been done to this jeep.  Though it sits a little high, the outboarded springs in the back should help improve the road stability.

“This is a 1946 Willys body on a Chevy frame with Chevy 350 four speed and drive train as you can see in the pictures. We did not clean or candy coated anything so that you can see what you are buying. This vehicle was bought about 3 years ago for hunting, off road and to be driven when ever and where ever. It doesn’t smoke, knock, shake or make any kind of noise and will take you any where you want to go. We don’t know what the milage is the odometer never worked.”

It looks like some remanents of bondo on the back driver’s quarter of the body.  Otherwise, the body doesnt’ look too bad for a parts jeep.

“I purchased the Jeep in August of 1997. It already had the small block Ford in it but was just sitting in outside storage here for years abandoned. Loved it at first sight. I tracked down the owner and made him an offer after I changed the oil, put a new battery in and fired it up. It just purred. I put in my garage until about 2000. That’s when my father in law gave me a nice place to work on it…. “

1947 Empire Tractor (uses Willys drive train) Drexel, Mo **SOLD**

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

1947_empiretractor_drexelUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

Empire Tractors were built from parts that are also used by Willys, such as the transfercase (spicer 18), transmission (t-90), differential (spicer 25) and more.  You can learn more about the specs for these tractors here.  Note that the seller claims these were built out of surplus WWII jeeps, however the t-90 was a CJ-2A tranny, so it seems more likely to me that they shared parts with the CJ-2A rather than built from the MB.

“HERE WE HAVE A RARE 1947 EMPIRE TRACTOR. MODEL 88-90 MADE IN 11-47 SERAIL NUMBER 6352 IT WAS RESTORED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN KEPT INSIDE ALL IT’S LIFE. THIS HAS WILLYS JEEP ENGINE AND TRANS,AND ALOT OF OTHER JEEP PARTS IN IT,THAT ARE ORGINAL TO THE TRACTOR. THESE TRACTORS WERE BUILT AFTER WWII OUT OF SURPLUS ARMY JEEPS. THE PAINT SHOWS SOME WEAR . THE TIRES ON BACK ARE ORGINAL AND FRONTS HAVE BEEN REPALCED. COMES WITH ORGINAL LIGHTS AND GENERATOR IN A BOX. IT HAS HAD ONLY 3 OWNERS AND RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE IT SHOULD, READY TO USE OR SHOW. THIS COMES WITH A BELLY SICKLE MOWER,THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED IN 20 YEARS. 3500 FIRM. MY NUMBER IS 660-267-3282 THANKS FOR LOOKING”
