1946? VEC? CJ-2A Lakeland, FL $3000


Listed as a 1948, this has a column shifter. Looking at the interior pic of the left side, this might have had indents that were filled in. Unclear how much value is here given the engine issue and body rust.

“I have a 1948 Jeep Willy CJ2A The engine will need to be rebuilt and atleast one tire replaced. The front floor board has several rust spots. There is no windshield. This is definitely a project Jeep”

1946 CJ-2A Grand Junction, CO $2000


This has a variety of updates, including an unusual headlight setup.

“Rough shape, potential project! Have title which is huge with these old Jeeps. Unfortunately not the original engine, but fortunately it has a 5.8 liter motor from an 80s ford! Hit me up with questions!”

1948 CJ-2A Santa Fe Springs, CA $1500


Listed as a 1947, the body looks to be a Lefty, so likely a 1948.

“It needs work for restauration, it has motor and transmission, papers”

1946 CJ-2A Georgetown, CA $4500


This could be a good deal. I would follow the fuel line or clean the tank, as it sounds like something is plugging up the fuel given the description.

“Runs, Goes, Then Dies, Then Runs Again… Needs a little love from someone who knows what they are doing. Probably a simple fix to be reliable fun. Sold As Is.”

1955 CJ-5 Trencher Shipshewana, IN $3000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.

(07/15/2023) Nick’s selling this early CJ-5 trencher project.

“This is a first model year 1955 CJ5 serial #13845. It has an original Auburn Jeep-A-Trench and the rare factory T98 4-speed transmission with granny low gear.

This style trencher is the gear-draulic which uses a hydraulic pump to raise and lower the unit. A driveshaft will slowly drive the Jeep while it trenches.

I’m told this last ran approximately 10 years ago. Engine spins over, but has low compression of 25-35 psi. Rings likely need soaked. I pulled the intake valve cover off and it looked clean.

Unsure of trencher condition itself, but check out Turn N Burn on YouTube where another trencher was brought back to life without much work.

Frame has patches as most trencher Jeeps do. Aside from the left rear corner dent, body is pretty decent for its age.

No title. Firm on price.

Wagon @ Magnolia Silos in Waco, TX

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos, Willys Wagons

Mike shared this photo with me a few weeks ago during this trip through Texas. The wagon looked familiar, but I couldn’t place it, so I’d planned to circle back when I had some time for research.

I finally discovered why I recognized it. Tim Evans and his wife had their photos taken in front of it during their visit in 2017, which I posted at that time. Tim noted in his email to me that Magnolia Silos had been featured on HGTV, and those folks who know of the Silos are also familiar with ChIp and Jo Gaines (my mother was a big fan). The wagon is a popular photo op and you can see some of those photos here. Given we were in Waco in 2017, I’m not sure how we missed doing our own photo op there.


I also found a video online:

Year? FC-170 Skowhegan, ME $2000 (Or $2500)

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

Andy shared this FC with a hydraulic dump bed. The top price is listed at $2500, but the text price is $2000.

“This listing is for an early 1960’s Jeep FC-170 with factory hydraulic dump body. This Jeep has its original 6 cylinder flathead super hurricane engine. The engine still runs, but the carburetor needs to be rebuilt. The frame is sound, engine is in good shape, the body needs to be restored. It also requires all new brakes. The only thing missing are the seats. The hydraulics haven’t been used in many years and will also need restoration. Mileage may be inaccurate at 30,000+. Plow has been removed, but front bumper has not been reattached. 2,000 or best offer”
