“Over the past 70 plus years, this super clean little Jeep has only been owned by two families. The Jeep is in super clean condition. It runs and drives as it should. Its super fun!

What really sets this Jeep apart from the rest is the rear mounted Power Take Off unit. These were ordered by farmers back in the day to run Buzz Saws, Pumps, Generators etc. The system is complete and works!

The Jeep also has an original Willys heater system. All the lights, wipers, horn etc. work! The original flat four cylinder engine had a recent valve job and new carburetor installed.

Comes with an original Service Manual and a file an inch thick of years of receipts etc. Located in San Antonio, always kept indoors. Comes with a clear Texas title. Thanks for looking!!!!!”

The serial number indicates this is a 1950 CJ-3A. It’s unclear why the title lists it as a 1946. This has a Sears-branded Deluxe hardtop and EasyLok hubs.

“1946 Willys. Has a Ford 4 cylinder 2.3L Turbocharged engine that came out of a late 80’s Mustang SVO. I don’t know the mileage. The motor runs great but hasn’t ran in a few years. It’s a project I’ve owned for 5 years and I never got to it and now I need money more than a project. So even though it’s breaking my heart, it’s for sale. It has 1 seat, and no roll cage, the tires are still great and all hold air, they’re 33×12.50×15. The rears are worn down quite a bit more than the fronts because turbocharged burnouts. This thing is awesome and it sounds amazing. Definitely a head turner. Needs a battery and you’ll have to put the MAF back on because it was sitting on the battery so I took it off when the battery was pulled. Needs fresh gas. The front driveline needs a u-joint. It needs trailered. If you don’t have a truck just rent a trailer and I’ll deliver if you’re local. Willing to trade for a camp trailer. [hidden information] Cody. Bill of sale only. Last registered in Utah as OHV”

1952 M-38A1 & Year? CJ-2A St. Paul, MN $9600 (for both)


The seller also lists prices for buying them separately. The 2A is listed as a 1952, but it looks to have some 2A attributes, such as the radiator, so the year may be incorrect (Or it is a 2A+3A).


“2 Jeeps, 1-1952 CJ2A $3800, and 1- 1952 M38A1 $6200, both have many many new parts, I got them both and were not running, my goal was to get them running whicih I did, now it’s time for someone else to take them to the next level, both start, run and drive, would take $9500 for both,”

1949 CJ-3A Las Vegas, NV $3500


Doesn’t run at the moment, but has potential. It appears the cargo area has been lengthened. Note the photo that shows the underside of the body near the rear of the frame. You can see the body sits several inches behind the normal rear of the frame. Moreover, a couple pics show what appear to be patches on the top of the rear wheel wells. There is no side shot that really shows how it looks after being lengthened.


“49 Jeep Willlys. Complete and ready to restore. Previous owner said he rebuilt the tops end. I have new file tank and radiator but have not installed. Not running currently but the Jeep is complete. Not missing any parts. Surface rust only except on tail gate. Clean Nevada title in my name. Will deliver locally”
