1946 CJ-2A Prescott, AZ $4500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: Forgot to post the pics last time.

(02/27/2020) Looks like a good price.

“I have a 1946 Willys CJ2A with a mild lift, 33” tires, full roll cage, and a ford 302 engine. I just went through the engine with my boys as a “teaching experience”. We put ported heads, new Summit torquer cam (0-5000), new lifters, new timing chain/gears, roller rockers, valve covers, and a new Edelbrock carburetor. The bottom end is bored .40 over with flat top pistons etc etc etc. What we learned is that a CJ2A can pop wheelies!!

That was not the lesson I was trying to teach my 13 and 15 year old so the “death trap” needs to go to someone with a more developed frontal lobe than my boys. I just put new front brakes (11″ drums) on it including rubber lines, slaves, and pads. It has the original 3 speed trans which pops out of 2nd when coasting sometimes. I do have some new polaris seats that go with the jeep. I also have a soft top that looks good but I have never put it on. There is a new aluminum radiator, fan, dual chamber brake master, etc etc etc.

It is a lot of Jeep for the money but someone needs to bleed the rear brakes, and tinker with it a bit. I have it set so only the primaries open on the carb. Adjust them at your own risk. The engine idles perfectly smoothe but has a ton of power for a jeep this size. $4500 obo Body is very straight but has some paint peeling on the hood. Very little rust or corrosion.”

“This is a project truck, needs a full restoration has all parts engine and transmission (doesn’t run). Needs all glass and mirrors but has the mechanisms for all. Body is in great condition no dents and bumpers are still solid, has obvious rust in the usual places but nothing thru and thru. Its a flatbed possibly used for forestry. The railing metals are there but needs wood replaced at flat bed and rails. Someone attached the camper to it but its not designed for it. This truck belongs to my wifes uncle so I don’t know much about it. But I did look it up and they sell for about $4000 in this condition

Now here is the thing about this truck, its located in a small town called Taylorsville right outside of Greenville. I took many pictures of it and if you are truly interested I can tow in myself down to where I live in Stockton. This is NOT a SCAM. I will not ask you for any kind of payment until we are in person and you’ve seen it with your own eyes. I’m just kind of putting this out there to see if anyone is interested if so then I can tow it down at my expense. I really just don’t have the space to have it here (I live in an apartment)”
