Late 1940s Willys-Overland Dealer Ad


Joel shared this late 1940s ad from the Maine Willys Sales Company of Augusta, Maine. Note the Willys Sign in the background with the early “J” logo. It appears that Maine’s State Foresty Department was an early enthusiast of the new jeep trucks. I was unable to locate the this ad using, so cannot date it at this time.

1959 Wagon Government Camp, OR $18,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,900.

(08/12/2016) Dan spotted this nice wagon out of Oregon.

“1959 Willys Jeep Wagon, 4WD, Everyday Driver, Original Drive Train, Warn Overdrive, Warn Automatic Hubs. I bought the Vehicle in 2000 in Vancouver, WA from it’s second owner. I restored/re-built it as an every-day driver in 2004. I’ve kept it in a garage since I restored it. The body, interior, engine, and drive train were done in local shops in the Portland Metro.
It comes with a few spare parts. I have a set of snow tires mounted on the same style rims that would be extra if you’re interested. The right front brake needs some TLC before you start driving it every day.
I’ve driven this fun wagon for 20 years, but now I’m looking for something new and different.”

August 31, 1946, Jeep Wagon Lady-Like Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: Steve shared this link about a ‘Lady Jeep’ article written for the Heinz Center, which led me to Amazon. That listing included a date and magazine for this ad … August 31, 1946, issue of the New Yorker. And, there’s a better pic on Amazon.



Originally published May 19, 2019: This ad was on google image search, though it was gone from the actual destination page to which Google directed me. So, I have no date or magazine name to identify when this ad was published. It treats the Army jeep as a tomboy and the wagon as a Lady.

1946 CJ-2A Port Hadlock, WA $4500


It’s running rough at the moment.


“1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep $4500 obo
Mechanical restoration 4 years ago. Requires constant adjustments and work. Is running crappy again. Starts but running extremely rich. Dies if you drive it. Could be from modern fuel gumming needle again, could be carb needs cleaned and adjusted again, could be something else. Maybe it’s got carb jet size issue from being set up for 5000 feet but now it’s at 100 feet above sea level. Who knows.

Original go devil motor. New radiator and brake system. Original. 4WD works good. Tranny is good. Maybe 300 miles put on it since motor rebuilt.

This jeep has been in my family it’s whole life. My dad bought it in 1956 in Kansas City from my great Uncle who bought after WW2. I inherited it in 2012 and paid for a mechanical restoration only 4 years ago. This thing requires care and adjustments just to keep it running and I’m done messing with it. It’s never been fully restored. It’s got rust. It’s got the back seat frame too. No cover.

NO DELIVERY. Drag it home.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Eliot, ME $13,900


As the seller notes, the tub was rebuilt, but not to original specs.

1946-vec-cj2a-eliot-me1 1946-vec-cj2a-eliot-me2 1946-vec-cj2a-eliot-me3 1946-vec-cj2a-eliot-me4

“L134 Go Devil motor runs well, rebuilt carb, new intake and exhaust manifolds, exhaust, radiator, hoses, starter, coil, battery, thermostat, all new brakes including lines and master, all new Walek 12V wiring harness, rebuilt steering box, removed tub to clean and repaint frame (394441) which was replaced at some point by previous owners. The tub was rebuilt by a previous owner and it you are a purest, it will need to have some rework. The 3 speed T90 transmission works, Dana 18 transfer case and Dana 41 rear is good. All gauges work however I have no documentation to confirm odometer.

Windshield is off 3A but have a 2A frame. I have the original air cleaner but prefer the K&N for better functionality. All fluids have been replaced this year and many seals replaced. That said, these Jeeps leak. Top speed is 35-40 mph. This Willys was manufactured in February of 46 so it would have had the column shift and been either Pasture Green or Harvest Tan. Found some Pasture Green on the underbelly. Looking for enthusiast who wants to take this restoration to the finish line”
