This could be a good price.

All frame, tailgate and sheet metal in great shape. No rust or rot.
A classic vehicle not seen often these days.
I DON’T NEED to sell it and I, sure, DON’T need any help to do so.
I know what these are worth so save us both some time and don’t attempt a low ball offer, not going to happen. I’ll just keep it.
It’s a cool old truck! It needs to be driven and I don’t have the time.
Local pick up only, will not ship. Have your money in hand. I have title in hand and it is current on registration. Registered in Iowa as “Antique”, includes perfect, vintage Y.O.M. (1959) Iowa, “Iowa County” (48), plates to drive with legally.

Tail gate present.
Flat fenders original and in good shape.
This Jeep is not running and needs restoration, but appears to be mostly original and complete.”
It’s got a few upgrades, including (I think) the hudson steering upgrade.
“Willys in great shape. Inherited from 1st owner who bought it in 47 (first year civilian model). Mid 60′s upgrades: V6 Buick, larger drum brakes, “modern steering setup”, locking hubs, Warn overdrive, custom made two door aluminum cab and mounted tool book, repainted original red. Other accessories, roll-bar, tow-bar, aux. gas can removable rack, “dash board” enclosed gun-rack/storage area. Mid 2005 a McQ High school shop class upgrade began, including rebuild of engine at AIMS Machine Shop, transmission pulled and all gaskets replaced, new alternator, starter, water pump, boiling out radiator and fuel tank, total professional rewiring, new “original equip” seats (all three), shocks and a lot of elbow grease. Still needs windshield replacement (gaskets in tool box), exhaust system replacement, new tires, and speedometer repair. This has never been in an accident and garaged most of it’s 67 years! It’s not a modern 4-wheeler I didn’t like going over 45 even in overdrive. It’s nice and narrow and climbs anything you can imagine, Granny is ridiculously low.
I’m looking for a 2009 or newer “lite” travel trailer for two most of the time. Hard wall, not hybrid pop-out bed, my truck has 5000 max tow limit so dry weight limit of 3500 seems doable. Cash to make up difference of course.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(01/27/2012) “No rust runs great real clean”
Apparently this was an old fire department truck.
“This 1950 truck was the first Fire truck for the Linwood, Minnesota Fire Department. It Has had a lot of work done to it recently. We had it running about a year ago, so the engine is good.”
Looks like there may be value here to me.
“1949 Jeep CJ3A parts jeep. Does not have seats or tank and body is rusted. Have title and non-op.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(07/01/2014) Steve spotted this one. No brakes and some rust. 2WD and dual paint scheme. Looks like a Maverick to me.
“nice project !! starts right up yard drives only no brakes and real bad old tires so you need to tow it home !! 1961 willys wagon, 4 cyl motor,3 speed transmission, guys its 2 wheel drive !!! floors are good,, rocker panels are good,,needs lil work on out side of 1/4 panels,needs some glass,it needs but its all there,i got it from a fram in p.a, original owner,i have clean p.a title,im on staten island right off of i-95 exit 13,real easy from jersey”
This truck includes a set of original ‘summer hubs’ from Warn.
“I just purchased 5 Willys Jeep trucks for a good price with the caveat that they be removed asap. Unfortunately, I only have room to keep one, so I’m thinning the herd, and this truck is by far the most restorable of the bunch. I would keep it but don’t want to butcher this truck with a diesel motor and 5-speed as it is so original and unmolested. Instead I’ll use one of the others that has already been modified. This 1955 truck hasn’t ran in years, and the title is lost so the purchaser will have to deal with DMV.
The odometer says 44,000 miles and based on the condition of the truck, it may be accurate. It has surface rust where the sun has burned the original Julip Green metallic paint, but has never had body work or bad rust. It does have a few minor dings. The bed is straight and rust free, and the tailgate is straight as well. The rear window is broken and the passenger side has a crack. Don’t know about the drivers widow as it is rolled down and I haven’t messed with it. It has the 226 six and appears to be complete with the exception of the air filter. The drivetrain is completely stock-it still has the original wheels and hubs. The floorboards are solid, no rust holes or gaping cuts from poorly done transmission swaps.
It still has the glass running lights and chrome bezels. In the pics some of the original gauges are missing, but I believe that I have them in a box. The original front chrome bumper is decent as well.
I’ve been watching Craigslist for the last five years since buying my 1948 Willys truck, and have seen dozens of Willys trucks come and go. They are not rare, but I’ve only seen a few that were this original and unmolested. The vast majority get beat to death hauling firewood or concrete, or worse, get turned into “extreme” 4x4s…
Update!!! There are four gauges in the dash that are not original. Fairly well done, just not original. The motor does not turn freely. I casually tried to turn it by the belt but it did not turn. If I am reading it correctly, the VIN number indicates that this truck is a 1955. This truck also has a set of vintage Warn “summer hubs” in the original “Warn” box sitting on the original bench seat. Bonus.
Price is $1500. Firm. No trades.”
Ran when parked. Has some art along the sides.
“Willys CJ2a with F134 overhead valve engine. The carb is from an old Falcon and so no hole has been cut into the hood. This Jeep is fairly complete and ran when parked (at the time it needed an accelerator pump in the carb). This has had some metal repaired and will need additional work and tlc but can be run as is. Original L134 type engine is available for $500.00.”
This has a number of updates.
“1946 Willys CJ-2A , Call for mileage
Address: 417 N. US Highway 287 FORT COLLINS, CO 80524
View our website: www.horsepowerauto.com
Notes: WILLY’s!!!! This is a 1946 Willy’s CJ2A Rock Crawler. This thing is cool. It has a well built Chevy 350 Motor with a 4 Speed Manual Transmission. This thing is sitting on 1 ton axles with a welded rear and locked front and 38″ Super Swampers. This thing has some serious get up and go. Like most older Jeeps, it is a work in progress and needs some finishing touches, but it runs and drives and is ready for some fun the way it sits. If you want to get some serious attention around town or in the hills, this one will get it for you. Come check it out. Stock# S73483″
It’s a project. I have great memories of Hayden in the summer.
“1948 Willys Jeep Cj2A for parts or restoration. I picked this up for a restoration project over 20 years ago and still haven’t gotten around to it. Someone else might as well have some fun with it.”

“I have a 1954 willys jeep was someone’s project at one point and time. There is no title. The motor is locked up the tranny is good. The price is $2400.00 obo. It would be a fun project for a father and son.”
It still needs a assembly.

No pics provided.
“4wheel drive, red, driver, nice, 85% restored”
Seller thinks this is a steal, but this is clearly a parts jeep. Of course, not used in WWII.
“1948 Willys Jeep running gear.
Has everything but engine, grille and radiator.
Comes with 2 sets of fenders, 2 hoods, and 2 windshields, and 2 sets of tires. All are original parts. The extra hood and set of fenders are from a 1943 Willys Jeep. All sheet metal needs repaired. The frame appears to be in good condition. These Jeeps are beautiful when restored and can go for big bucks! This is a steal! These Jeeps were the common vehicle used in WWII!
Wanting $500 obo and will entertain any trades. Prefer texting and emails. Thanks!”
Looks to be a good price.

“Jeep is in parts. Frame has been restored. Engine/trans/transfer case are sitting on a moving dolly. Wheels are painted harvest tan with new non directional tires.

“This a great deal for a very nice jeep. It is mainly all original and in great shape. Especially for being 58 years old. The body has very little rust and no dents or dings. It has been very well kept with only 21,965 miles on it. Please text or email your questions. More pics available upon request. Thanks and God Bless!”
