“1949 Willys Jeep: I’ve been working on this for about a year. Recently found out that engine needs to be rebuilt or need to swap in a newer/used engine. I took the body off, scraped, sanding, acid etched primed, then sprayed with a fine finish tip and put on a raptor liner coating. Black raptor liner to the underside and the inside of the tub. Sandblasted the rims, grill, bumpers, light housings and powder coated with matte black finishes. New gauges, new steering wheel, new reproduction seats with new vinyl. New tires. New. shocks. New muffler, exhaust system. It’s been fun but I’m not wanting to dump another $2,000-$3,000 for the engine upgrade.”

Year? CJ-3B? w/ Unusual Parkette Body Blue Ridge, GA $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available. The serial number is included, so the year should be estimate-able.

(06/22/2021) Given the front clip, this might be a 3B chassis, though the Parkette body is a low-hood version.

The seller is correct about Paul Parker and the body. But, I believe this is the first version of this particular style that I’ve seen. It lacks the side stripe, has fender extensions, has a little different PARKETTE design on the back, has an extra wide lip around the rear, and looks like it has a side step. Very interesting.

“Rare, rare, rare. 48/49 Willys Jeep with Parkette fiberglass body. Believed only a handful made while Paul Parker was back in Georgia. This one is a bit odd as it doesn’t have the “line” above the fender but it does have flared fenders; the Willys nose panel is original equipment. Not sure it’s on the right size frame at the moment but we do have an original Willys bare chassis on the property we can work into the deal.

Engine/trans present. Very cool project. Needs finishing. No title. Bill of sale only. If the ad is up, the Willys is available.”

“Very cool 1946 Jeep CJ2A. This was sitting in a field for quite some time. The owner I bought it from did not title the jeep. The previous owner could not locate the title. So you will need to get a bonded title. I had multiple offers on the way home when picking it up. Will have a bill of sale..

I have shown this jeep to a serious collector and he said this is the kind of jeep he looks for. It’s virtually un molested. It does have rust in the floor under the tank and where the tool box is on passenger side. I bought a new tank and sending unit for it and gas cap. It also has a new repair manual.

The previous owner drove it around for me but did so without working brakes. He used a retro fitted fuel can to make it work. Engine ran rough probably needs carburetor cleaned out real good. I believe the brakes could be bleed. Not sure of their condition. Has to original style seats. This would make a great little project. These thing are going for crazy money and It has the Ford type head. Let me know it your interested and I’m not really gonna budge on price. Other motor shown in pic is not included. I just had it running for a short time however the carburetor started leaking so it will need rebuilt.”
