3 CJ-2As Shelbyville, IN $5000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/07/2020) I’m not sure the ’45 CJ-2A is a ’45. I don’t see a column shifter and I can’t see rear hubs.


“I am listing this for my dad. He has 3 willys jeeps for sale. One is a 1945 cj2a. It is all original and complete but doesn’t run. It has set in the barn for several years. The other two are 1947 cj2a’s that he bought for parts. One is complete with a steel hard top the other one is missing the engine. None of them have titles. He isn’t willing to separate them, he wants to sell them together for $5000.00 .”

Year? CJ-2A Melbourne, IA $3000


Body and brakes will need work at the very least.



“I am selling my 1940s Willys CJ-2A. It starts, runs, drives, and stops. I recently put new wheel cylinders on but the brakes are still weak. It is 12 volt and has the modern gear reduction starter.
Was a off-road unit at one point and has the mud tires for it.
The body is in rough shape but everything else is in decent condition.
Comes with an extra front axle and some other misc. parts as well as the title.

This would be a good off-road candidate or for restoration. I am selling because I do not have time for it.

$3000.00 firm cash or check.”

CJ-2A Rock Springs, WY (and elsewhere) $3600 … Scam!


UPDATE: Definitely a scam. This jeep ad has been spotted in several locations now. A reader named Sam took the plunge and emailed the seller. After several rounds of emails, Sam concluded there was no jeep.

Possible scam as the price seems too good. Seller mentions nothing about the jeep.

1945? CJ-2A? Kelseyville, CA $4200


Listed as a 1945 CJ-2A, it’s got a replacement body.


“Great running little CJ flat fender Jeep. Driveable now but will require some final tinkering to put it back on the road – electrical for lights, blinks, gauges, brakes bled, decent seats and the tires are good but checked. Optima battery pictured NOT included with the sale. Has spent some time on the Coast so a little blistering here and there on the body but not terrible. 4 point roll cage included with the sale. All and all a cool project for someone with the hard work being done. Good title on current non op. $4200. Trades considered (no boats or bikes please)”

1948 CJ-2A Cutchogue, NY $17,500


This refurbed 2A looks solid. It lacks drain holes, but the body seems in good shape and nicely repaired (if that’s the case). It lacks the original hood and the front gussets are missing, too. The truck behind it looks very nice.


“All redone. Everything works as it should. Great summer ride. CJ-2A”

1948 CJ-2A Reno, NV $6450


Seller has begun disassembly on this, so it’s a project at this point.

“Bought this a few months ago it ran and drove. It is an absolute blast to drive, like a cross between a tractor and a gokart… I took it around the neighborhood and to the grocery store a few times down the street, then started to prep to remove the tub to fix some rust on the floor panels. There are kits sold online that you just weld in place to make it a fairly siple repair.

I didn’t get very far, removed some body bolts, undid the dash wiring (all clearly labeled for easy re-assembly) You could put it all bag together and just drive it as is without issue, my plan was a full restoration but quickly realizing I do not have the time.

This has an unusual hardtop.

View all the information on eBay

“Decided to sell my 1946 Willys Jeep. This little jeep runs and drives like a 1946 willys jeep should. The only known issues the fuel filter plugs every once and a while. The gas tank needs to be rinsed out.Could also use a radiator cap I did order one but I am not sure when it will arrive. I only drive it a few miles now and then so it was just not a priority I guess. Shifts good in all gears 4×4 works great. Tires are old look to be original military tires? This jeep was converted to 12 volt and has a new battery. I just dont drive it so decided to pass it on to someone else. Very solid jeep for its age. There is just a minor spots on both sides below the doors. This is pretty common and the patch panels are super cheap. I will get some more pictures and add them tomorrow. Clear title in my name.. I can store this jeep for a few months as long as it is paid for in full with in 5 days of auctions end.”
