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….”

This is non-running.

“Jeep 1946 Willys CJ2A. Tub is in fair to moderate condition. Fenders, grill, tailgate in good condition. Windshield frame in moderate condition – there is some rust on the lower portion, but the split glass is intact and the venting mechanism is intact. Frame is in great shape.

Master cylinder needs replaced or rebuilt and brake lines need to be replaced. Seats appear to have been recovered recently with olive canvas. Gas tank and radiator are there and appear to have no holes. Comes with tow bar. I do not have a title. All VIN plates are intact and I will provide a SC Bill of Sale. I am also in the market for a new manufactured 6 X 12 mesh floor trailer that I would consider towards sale.

1949 CJ-2A Portland, Or $999


It doesn’t run, but appears complete.  Based on the year, I’d say this is a CJ-3A, but the bow holders on the driver’s side suggest CJ-2A.

“It’s a pretty great jeep. I really, REALLY hate having to sell it but, as we all know the economy sucks.  Anyways, about the jeep:  Of course it doesn’t run it’s been sitting for about 2 years, under cover about 1 year 6 months. Mostly electrical work is needed, and I imagine there is a load of work to be done under the hood. Ran and drove 2 years ago.  Stock cover is still in great condition, just needs a thorough wash. Interier is dusty and smelly. Hundreds of extra parts laying around. (Doubles of what’s on the jeep already).  NOT a parts vehicle, or un-finished project. Just needs a good strong elbow or two on her for a while.
Will most likely need all 4 new tires, but they haven’t been filled with air in a long time so they might still work, who knows Lol. All are welcome to take a look if you like, shoot me an offer first and we’ll see where we can go from there.”

1946 CJ-2A DuQuoin, Il eBay


Check out the knob sticking out of the emergency brake hole.  What is that?  Also, the carburetor just barely sticks out of the hood.  I suspect the air cleaner attaches above the hood?  The seller notes that with the exception of the engine, everything is original, which isn’t true.

“This jeep is in good condition with a 52 overhead valve engine, everything else is original…Steering has been rebuilt…new battery…This has the 4 wheel drive with low and high…and it works good..  It shows 36967 but I can’t confirm this. This would make a great hunting/fishing jeep or one to just have fun in…thanks for looking..rudy”
