1941 Article: 1300 Miles in a Jeep

It sounds like this report and soldier had a very uncomfortable ride in the “roman rack”. I am a bit surprised that the jeep garnered so many laughs. Note the BRC-40 in the top pic. The article appeared in The Morning Call, out of Paterson, New Jersey, November 22, 1941.

2 1946 CJ-2As Langhorne, PA $1500


The more complete jeep has a gear shift that appears to the driver’s side of the transmission gear shift. That could be a crankshaft PTO engagement shifter. The hardtop looks similar to a Porter and Reed, but the front of the roof doesn’t slope down at the correct angle. I’m not sure what top it is.

“This is for both Willies Jeeps 1946. One title. Use for parts or get a title and use both to build one. The second one has a electric hydraulic pump that goes with”

1946 CJ-2A Golden, CO $2500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/07/2020) Given the grille, this is likely a 1947 or later. It’s a project that hasn’t been run since Kennedy was president.

“1946 Willys Jeep project. Very original and complete. Last plated and ran in 1963. Body and frame in really good condition overall, rust in hat channels and toolbox, floors are good, has a repair on the passenger rear where tire carrier usually messes them up, has all 5 original tires and wheels, has the original soft top frame bows and most of the hardware , have the remains of the cloth topt with door frames and metal window ports , i have never seen these before, has all data tags and vin plate, the is no original title. I do have a title from a jeep i scrapped, but it doesn’t match this Jeeps vin tag. Looks like water got in the tranny and it is stuck, engine doesn’t turn either but coud be because of the transmission . Carburetor is missing they gave me one but it doesn’t fit. Great start to a complete restoration”

1942 GPW Jackson, CA $4953


UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/02/2018) This might have a set of Watson hubs.

(from previous ad) … “Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”

1955 CJ-3B Amsterdam, NY $4000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(07/26/2020) Has some modifications.


“This is a 1955 cj3b that was rebuilt from the ground up total tear off 20 years ago it has a Chevy 4.3 v6 bored 30 over and a turbo 350 automatic transmission the axles are stock which means it’ll pull down a house hasn’t been run in 20 years. It’s probably seized up I haven’t touched it in years but it shouldn’t take much to get her up and running. the body was brand-new ship to me from the Philippines. It has a 4in lift and I think it’s run in 32 or 33 inch tires. I really hate to see it go but could use the money for other projects. Dreams change. best offer I work nights and sleep days so the best time to reach me is in the evening”

1946 VEC(?) CJ-2A Middle River, MD $3500


This lacks a title, but doesn’t lack potential.

“My CJ2A project, currently has no title, but I was in the process and will provide a bill of sale. Very good condition with not a lot of bad rot spots for its age. Ran not too long ago before I drained the fuel. Shifted and ran well, but it’s main issue is no brakes. The cylinders were bad and the lines may need replaced. Time for it is just one of those things I don’t have anymore sadly.”

Anyone Have the History Behind This Jeepster?

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster, wanted • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: The current owner bought this Jeepster this summer. He was wondering if anyone knows any history on this former Shriner’s vehicle?


Originally Posted July 6, 2020:   **SOLD** Was $5000. This 1950 Jeepster was sold out of University Place, Washington.

This former Grays Harbor Shriner’s Jeepster has even converted to an automatic tranny (probably from a Pinto … looks like one anyway) with a Pinto engine. I love the history on this one. Looks like a great price.

“Rare 1950 Willys Jeepster. Updated with Pinto engine, 12 volt system. Always stored indoors. No rust. Former Shrine clown car. $5,000 Please call, no texting.”
