The floor is probably gone. The package probably deserves a closer look.
“I have for sale a 49 Willys Jeep that I found rotting in a field in the country and a Bantam trailer from the same era. I have a clear title for the Willys but do not have a title for the trailer. The price is for the Jeep and the trailer, for additional money($500) I have an aluminum cab enclosure with doors(rare option)
The floor pan need to be replaced as well as other issues(I have some really nice pans to go with it we ordered for another project that didn’t fit so this is some nice metal you can cut to fit-see pic)
The motor in the old Willys is stuck…..
Has solid bones though……
If you are a Willys Purest come save this old girl before I put the tub on another frame and make a rat rod out of it with a black smoke puffing diesel motor hanging out of the front of it! Seriously I don’t have time for it, it has to go and I would rather see it “restored”, I will trade for other projects Harley, other old stuff, motorcycles, ATV’s, whatever just no electronics or crap in the back of your garage (if you don’t want it I most likely don’t either, lol) all serious offers considered, low ballers please don’t bother, you’re only wasting your own time, thanks
Please call with your questions, i don’t have time for an all day back and forth of texting that we can figure out in a 5 minute conversation!! Thanks!!”
UPDATE: Was $700. **Status Unknown**

“Selling my beloved 1947 Willys CJ2A. I’ve been plowing my driveways with this for almost ten years, before that it sat abandoned in the woods for about 35 years. It looks the same now as it did then, I have the pics to prove it! Always starts even in sub zero weather. Plow and four wheel drive work good. Clutch is good, lights work. Nothing made in China here folks, just old American iron made when men were men and women loved them! Charging system works, beacon works. No brakes or paperwork. Use it or restore it. Matching Sears trailer in similar condition included. Boat not included. Never thought I’d sell it, but have another truck with a plow and am consolidating.”

“Willy CJ3B Vin 454GB236847 Asking price $17,000.00
Engine original 4cycle “F” head
The ultimate 1950’s adventure package with all the vintage aftermarket additions; Sears aluminum cab, Braden power take-off winch with half inch cable, Warren hubs, 2nd gas tank under the passengers seat, and block heater. Includes a Bantam Trailer Corp. munitions type trailer, originally designed with the same wheels and rims to pair with the CJ. This trailer has a fabricated aluminum covered top. There are a total of 8 original rims with vintage bias-ply tube tires in great condition. Other additions include removable rear seat, handy man jack, CB radio set (with 12 to 6 volt converter), spotlight, conventional AM radio, vintage metal ice chest, and 7 vintage metal jerry cans. The vehicle spent more than fifty of it’s years living in the comfort of a garage. The upholstery is in great shape but the foam liner on the inside of cab has deteriorated.
The engine was rebuilt in 1963 by a precision motor shop in Denver where it had the crankshaft plated in hard chrome, all the moving parts were matched and balanced. In 1979 both the front and rear axles were fitted with positraction differentials. The original spider gear parts are still in good shape and included with jeep. A full set of chains is also included. The performance of The Little Red Jeep with positraction and chains in difficult situations is very impressive.”
