1948 CJ-2A Chapel Hill, NC $5000


This looks to be a good CJ-2A.  I don’t think the pics do it justice.

“1948 Willys CJ2A. Mechanically you will not find a better running cj2a in the area. It has been gone over mechanically from top to bottom. Everything as far as the drive train goes is in excellent working order. All parts that have been replaced have been kept and I have a sizeable quantity of new after market parts that will go with the vehicle, to include a spare transmission still in box. I have some body parts and sheet metal to replace any rusted areas on the tub etc.

There is rust on floor boards and in spots on wheel wells but as I said, I have purchased sheet metal parts to replace these areas. I’ll save that step for whoever buys my 2a. My sons and I have a great time driving this vehicle around chapel hill. We had a great “sledding safari” last winter. All mechanicals work smoothly on this jeep. It is a great piece of working history and I would love to send it to a good home. Please call 919-259-8447 if interested. Asking 5000 or best offer.”

This appears solid.  It’s a former fire department jeep.

1951 CJ-3A Jeep Tractor Falls Creek, Wi **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was listed at $7500.

Here’s a very rare Willys.  If the serial number is correct, it is 1 of 2 known of this model, though it has been ‘re accessorized” into a standard CJ-3A.

My investigation into this topic started tonight after Dan spotted this ad.  He said, ‘check out the serial number because I think it is a Tractor Jeep’.

I copied there first part of the serial number (451-GD1) and pasted it into Google and hoped for the best.  Seconds later, I had my answer.  It turns out, the website had all the info I needed.  There’s an entire page about both the Jeep Tractor and the Farm Jeep, both ‘farm’ versions of the CJ-3A introduced in 1951 and designed specifically for farms.

The standard CJ-3A serial number beings with 451 GB1, while the Farm Jeep uses 451 GC1 and the Tractor Jeep uses 451 GD1.  The ‘Farm Jeep’ was intended both for farm use and general purpose use and the ‘Tractor Jeep’ was designed exclusively for Farm use, eliminating a variety of items, including “front shocks, a spare tire, windshield, tailgate, headlights, fuel-pump booster, speedometer, and horn

The site reports that only 1 451-GD1 has been documented.  If everything checks out, this will be the second one found. You can see a close up of the serial number plate here.

So, the next time you check out a CJ-3A, double check that serial number.

“This is a solid and strong jeep. It has a unique serial number – 451-GD1 10036.
Engine is a L-134 “Go Devil” – 4 cyl iron block.
Transmission – Dana 18
Front Axle – Dana 25
Rear Axle – Dana 44″

Sam Gives Craig’s CJ-3B a Lift

• CATEGORIES: Features, How To • TAGS: .

(Sam, feel free to correct if I have erred with any of my descriptions!)

Sam’s been keeping busy working Craig’s CJ-3B.  For example, Craig was complaining that the brakes didn’t work real well.  So, Sam took a close look at them and discovered that the jeep was only stopping with one brake!  Two of the brakes were completely rusted up and the third brake had suffered a pinched line!  So, Sam obtained some brakes off of a Wagoneer (shoot, I can’t remember the details Sam!), installed those and rebuilt the lines.  Now it “stops on a dime with 9 cents change” as Sam says.

Another project Sam tackled was the springs.  The ride was hard as a rock.  Sam told Craig he had a pretty easy solution.  Instead of installing new springs, they just needed to pull the leafs apart, clean them up, install new bushings and shackles, and then add a liner between the springs to help quiet the ride and improve the action between the springs.  So, Sam put everything back together, saving Craig plenty of money in the process, and the ride improved immensely.

A third project Sam tackled was a lift:  Craig wanted the jeep to ride slightly higher, but not as high as a SOA would have been.  Instead of using longer shackles, Sam suggested simply adding some blocks between the frame and spring holders.  This would provide the lift, but negate the need to change the axle angles.  Below are some pics of the finished lift.  During the process, Sam also installed new shock mounts in the middle of the frame, which allows for the use of stock shocks.

The blocks were made with 2.5″ x 2″ x 3/16″ square tubing that has been capped on each end.  Below pre-paint finished product.

Here is the post paint result of the front hanger (note the color is actually black, but the light faded the color)

You can see the homemade shackles that Sam built which utilize the horizontal piece in the middle. This helps reduce spring sway.  He prefers to keep the shackle as short as possible to additionally remove sway.

Here’s a shot of the front of the rear spring.

This shows the ‘new’ brakes, but does not show the lowered top shock mount.  It also doesn’t show the updated Rack and Pinion system which should be completed soon (here are some early images and discussion of the process).

The Barfrosttreffet is this Weekend

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

Even Erlien wrote me today to tell me about the upcoming Barfrosttreffet (early frost gathering) in which he and about 40 other vehicles will participate.  Given it will take place in Norway, I suspect it will be plenty cold!  Even has offered to take some pics and share them.

Even tells me a number of folks from Norway keep tabs on eWillys, so I thought I’d give a shout out to the Jeep Club of Norway.  Launched in 1999, the club has members in areas throughout Norway.  Their website with some images to check out, but if you want to read about the club you’ll need to brush up on your Norwegian 🙂 (or use a translator, which is what I did).  Thanks for the email Even!

(btw, Even I need you to email at … I tried responding to the email addy you sent and it didn’t work for some reason)

A Very Sad Wagon ….

• CATEGORIES: Features, Last Ride

Maggie Mae discovered this terribly sad wagon.  This poor thing is now sitting in her driveway.  However, looks can be deceiving.  It turns out it has a part she has been trying to find.  Also, upon closer inspection, she reports the frame appears in good shape.

She writes,  “In my defense, it was ‘free for haul away’ and has the 2 barrel manifold I’ve been searching for. The floor is just a couple inches shy of the bottom of the windows, it actually looks a bit better than it should in the back end because of the homemade spring hangers/lift kit. Yes, the grille guard is a piece scaffolding. The gas tank had rusted through and was replaced with a beer keg that was “mounted” on 2×4’s where the passenger rear seat should have been.”

This runs.  It might be a good price.

“This is a 1947 Willys Jeep. I am not crazy about selling it but my dad needed the parking spot in the shed for a tractor. Instead of letting it sit out in the weather I decided to pass it on to someone who might be able to use and enjoy it. I bought this jeep from a friend who was forced to sell it for exactly the same reason. Believe it or not the jeep was original to his family and I am only the second owner. My friend drove it as his only means of transportation growing up until he parked it in his father’s barn 15 years ago. I bought it as a project and actually got it running great. I replaced more things than I care to list but will be glad to explain it all to any interested parties. I found that parts for this model are relativley inexpensive and easy to find. It still needs work but not as much as you would think. I feel that most of the work is cosmetic but I liked the patina and wouldn’t do it personally.”
