1948 CJ-2A Milford, IA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500

This looks good.

“For sale is a green 1948 Willys Overland CJ-2A. It has an operational PTO (power take off). It has virtually no oil drips. The Jeep starts, runs, and drives well. Transmission shifts smoothly and the 4wd system shifts in/out and works just fine. I reverted the system back to 6 volt for nostalgic purposes but the 12 volt resisters are still in place to convert it back. Tires have about 500 miles on them. This Jeep is road worthy and I have the title ready to sign over to you. It is hard to find these things in the shape she is in. I’m sad to part with it, but I bought it as a “getting out of the military gift to myself,” and now it’s time to move on to the next fun project. I can’t provide details on its history prior to my ownership, but I can give you details on every repair since I have owned it. It comes with a complete soft top, Willys Overland CJ2A reprinted mechanics manual, a spare set of spark plugs and a spare paper oil filter”

Busy Busy Busy

• CATEGORIES: Features

This month there have been a few more interruptions than normal with eWillys because I’ve been busy, busy, busy.  Here is why ….

First off, I’ve been dating someone, throwing off my time schedule a bit, but I’m happier for it!

Second, the book is nearly ready for publication; I have decided to do one more large revision based on some comments from my Aunt.  Those should be complete by month’s end.  Below is a mockup of the book with its cover.  I think I have a book printer, but am still negotiating that.  Until that time, I will release the book electronically and will encourage as many people as possible to buy it. The reason I need to sell the book is because my financial contract is up with my previous employer.  So, my ability to continue to support eWillys is slightly endangered.  However, I won’t give up hope just yet, especially since responses to the book from women have been excellent, so I have pretty high hopes!  Also, I have made some mockups of another book that teaches people how to identify all the models of jeeps.  In addition, I now have a professional photographer that I can work with to create the shots for the new book (you might have seen her work form the San Juan Island GPW we found). I’m hoping I can put that book together over the next year, but that time frame is dependent on a variety of issues.

Third, I’ve been doing legwork on securing some art pieces created by my Great Aunt Emma Eilers about 100 years ago.  Thirty paintings popped up from a single collector in early September, so it took some effort and negotiations to come to a satisfying financial solution to get them back into the family.

Fourth, I’ve been preparing for a trip to NYC/Long Island from Sept 19th through Sept 29th to do family research, review the paintings mentioned above, and visit with a jeep collector in the area.  During my stay in Sea Cliff, LI, I will also be staying at my Aunt’s former studio which still sits on the property that was the former family estate.  So, I’ve very excited about this unusual opportunity.  I’m hoping all the family research work I’ve done over the past 10 years will result in another book, though it isn’t jeep related in the slightest.

So, the timing of updates and my response times will be uneven for a week and a half.  It’s just been that kind of September!

Below is the back cover:

PNW4WDA Go-4-All Kid’s Jacket from the early 80s

• CATEGORIES: Features

My sister found this jacket at a garage sale the other day.  So, she bought it.  The Go-4-Alls are a Seattle club based originally in Midway, Washington (perhaps still based there), though there were several members of club just a mile from me in Renton (and I went to high school with three pretty members of the club).  This kid’s jacket shows playdays/conventions from 1981-1983 that I attended as well. These club jackets were very popular with clubs back in the 70s and 80s and are still seen around today if you attend PNW4WDA events.  I have large version of both pics so the details can be seen. Just click on the images.

And just for kicks, this image was taken in late 1981 during of a joint Wandering Willys and Go 4 Alls jeeping trip over the Naches Pass and Manashtash Ridge in the Cascades.  Dad’s jeep is the CJ-5 in the middle front of the picture.  I was 16 and this was the first trip where I did most of the driving during this trip.

1946 VEC CJ-2A Wynnewood, PA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $39,000

This isn’t your every day restoration.  It won the prestigious Grand National Senior Award, from the Antique Automobile Club of America, and is the only known jeep ever to achieve this distinction.  Also, the seller is aware the price is above the normal price of the average restored jeep (so any comments apart that are not price related would be appreciated).

1946 Willys CJ-2A with rare column shift, PTO, full eight-piece canvas top,  all mechanical components new or rebuilt, meticulously restored to factory-fresh condition. AACA Grand National Senior Award, a perfect museum-quality specimen without peer. Over $45K invested. Price: $39,000.

This jeep is full of nostalgia and meaning for me. It’s similar to the jeep my grandfather bought new in Philadelphia after World War II and kept at his summer place in Maine. In the summer of 1959, when I was nine, he let me drive it up his long driveway to fetch the mail and over the blueberry fields. When he sold his place two years later, the jeep, alas, was put up for sale as well. Over the years, I’ve tried to find that exact jeep, so far in vain.

Make: Jeep

Manufacturer: Willys-Overland Motors, Toledo, Ohio.

Model: CJ-2A

VIN: CJ2A28301

Engine: four-cylinder flathead, 134 cubic inches, 60 horsepower

Electrical system: six volt

Color: pasture green, an original jeep color for that year

“I am selling a 1948 willys cj2a “lefty” Jeep!! There were less the 10,000 of these jeeps built one year. Willys put the spare tire on the drivers side instead of the passenger for a few months of production. The jeep does have some rust and body damage but can be fixed pretty easy.. the motor starts right up and seems to run good but the carburetor could use a rebuild. I put a new gas tank with sending unit in the jeep and also I have new canvas seats coming for the jeep… Jeep does need some TLC but would be a nice project to fix up for hunting or to do a full restoration… Please fell free to call me at (970-210-0680) for any question… Jeep is located in Crawford CO but I can deliver the jeep..”

The frame has some cracks, but the seller has a CJ-5 frame to replace it.

“Looking to sell my vintage willys jeep
Clean clear LA title
225 buick v6- does run, but would most likely need the carb cleaned as it has not been cranked in a couple years, I believe the drivetrain was transplanted from a cj5 and it has power steering of some sort on it- has a holley 390cfm 4 barrrel with aluminum 4 barrel intake, also have carter 2 barrel and adapter plate for it
It has 31″ swampers (tires in pics are not what is on it now) on white spokes, full cage that I would personally change up some, body shell seems sold floors have been re-sheeted.
It is a project and I bought it for such and have a lot of stuff that will go with it. It needs the brake and fuel lines ran properly and you could actually drive it like it is. The frame has a couple cracks, as they are prone to, but I have a cj5 frame that I was going to swap it over to, or you could repair he cracks and leave it as it is. Comes with cj5 frame, 2 sets of spare axles, 2-3 spare transmissions and transfer cases, 12 gal alum fuel cell and yj poly tank (choose which one you want to install), new plastic race seats with covers and sliders, a box of misc extras and I am sure more that I cant think of.
I want $1600 and have quite a bit more than that in it. It really doesnt need any money put in it, just some time, would make a great winter project for this year and put it on the trails in the spring and have under $2000 in a driving rig. Comes with everything I have associated with it and do not want to sell parts. If no interest, i will leave it sitting under the shed until I get the time to play with it.”

1957 Wagon Missoula, Mt **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $16,500

(05/15/2011) This looks in good shape.

“1957 Willys-Overland Motors Kaiser-Jeep Wagon 4×4, 2 door with rear lift hatch and tailgate. This is the ORIGINAL SUV !!! $16,500 O.B.O.

In July of 2011, this vehicle was given an excellent bill of health by the renowned and reputable Zip Auto here in Missoula. The only issue they found was the defrost control rod appeared to be stuck. Very fixable I’m sure. Compression ratio was perfect on all 6 cylinders.

This one is a rare find indeed. You’ll be hard pressed to find another one of these that has been garaged it’s entire life. Yes this was garaged always when not in use. My grandfather purchased this vehicle new and used it for hunting and exploring Montana during the late 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. This Willys Jeep Wagon was used rarely, adult driven it’s entire life and maintained with the utmost attention and care. Since the late 70’s, this vehicle was started nearly every summer, brought to operating temperature and driven around the neighbor hood a bit. I believe it was 1985 that my grandfather had a fair amount of work done on this vehicle. He had the engine pulled, cleaned, new seals everywhere, prepped and painted. The body and interior were completely prepped/repainted and the upholstery was redone that same year. The exhaust system was also replaced around the same time. Every ounce of chrome on this looks like a mirror. The exhaust tip is still nice and chromed. The rubber seals all look near new as well. Basically it looks, sounds, smells like new and doesn’t leak any fluid. Talk about sound, it also has a dual or triple horn that is quite loud. Rear passenger side windows slide back half way.

I’m having the radiator, engine, transmission, transfer case and differentials all serviced this week. Radiator will be flushed, fluids will be replaced. I just put in a new battery last week. The winner of this auction will essentially be getting a near new 1957 Willys Jeep Wagon. Potential buyer will need to be aware that this is still the original 6 volt system. Everything works. Because of the low gear ratio, this SUV tops out around 50-55 on the highway. This isn’t going to be your highway commuter vehicle, these were made for the back country or rural communities.

45,470 Original miles (adult driven). This jeep wasn’t used that often. Body in outstanding show quality shape and repainted in 1985. (two tone green). New upholstery in 1985. New engine seals and engine paint in 1985 “L6-226 Super Hurricane” 226 CID (3.7 L) in-line 6 cylinder, great low RPM torque. Borg-Warner T-90 Manual 3 speed transmission 4×4,Spicer/Dana 18 transfer case, nice two lever action Dana 53 rear, Dana 25 front axel. Low gear ratio, with the 6-cylinder engines, it was 4.88:1 standard or the optional 5.38:1 (not sure which this is, it goes pretty slow). Newer exhaust system (1985), still has a shiny chrome exhaust tip. Sounds nice and quiet. Tires look new.”
