1946 CJ-2A Francestown, NH $2750


It’s a CJ-3B frame, 2A body project.


“1946 CJ2A project. CJ3B Frame is in amazing shape, CJ2A body has plenty of rough spots, but still pretty solid. Brand new floor pan from Kaiser Willy’s ($1,200), new bulkhead, new passenger seat storage box, 10 gallon fuel cell and new fuel lines. It as 110 psi per cylinder, new gaskets, new carb, freshly adjusted valves, 12v alternator kit, 12v electronic distributor, brand new radiator and complete new exhaust. I have spare axles, spare transmission and transfer case with the emergency brake, tailgate, brakes, and other original parts like 6v distributor, and Carter WO carburetor. This would make an amazing project for someone with more patients and experience than me. At this point I just miss my old YJ. If you want to know any more information let me know. The 12v battery is not included. $2,750”

“1956? Jeep Willys, inline 4 cylinder. The Jeep will not crank but does not appear to be locked up in any way. The wheels turn, the gears shift, and the steering wheel turns. The engine does not appear to be locked up but that cannot be verified. Most all of the parts of the vehicle appear to be there but many parts are loose. The ignition is not wired up. No keys. The battery is 1-2 years old. A 1-2 year old wiring harness will be provided but is not installed. The tires hold air but not sure for how long. This needs to be hauled away on a trailer. It is sold as-is. There is no title. A bill of sale will be written to the buyer in person at our local bank once the funds are deposited into our bank account. This is a restoration project vehicle. It does not run and will take a lot of work to get it road ready. The price is firm, no other offers will be responded to. No trades. I hope this finds a good home with someone who can restore it. It has good bones, it just needs a lot of work to get it running again”

Custom Jeep Brooksville, FL $1000


Here’s an odd one.


“So, this has been in my family for quite a while. Believe my great grandpa ‘created’ this back in the 80’s and would mainly use it as a hunting vehicle. To my understanding mostly all the exterior is fiberglass, cab space is mainly sheet metal, engine and chassis are from an old jeep (willys jeep or jeep CJ) sometime in the 1940’s-60’s. Price is OBO, if you think you have any info on the chassis and engine based on the pictures let me know, I would like to learn more about it myself. Have the cylinder head and other parts but are in kind of rough shape as you could assume”
