1948 CJ-2A Bristol, RI $3800


Runs with newer engine, but bodybuilding needs work.

“1948 Willys CJ2A. Pros: Running and driving with a gm inline 6. Frame in good shape. Hood, Windshield, front fenders and frame all in good shape. Clean New Jersey title.

Cons: Needs new floor. You can buy a completely new tub easily and have a perfect jeep. No fuel tank, no floor, no seats.”

1947 CJ-2A Woonsocket, RI $4000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/28/2022) It runs and drives.

“Runs and drives well. Does over 50mph. The previous owner had this a long time and did many modifications. It has a Dana 44 narrow track rear axle. I believe the front is upgraded also. Saginaw steering setup. The motor is an early 70s 2.0 Ford. The floor has been patched numerous times. Either way it’s a drivable 2a with paperwork and I’m firm on the price. Original vin tag on firewall, current RI registration in my name”

Mike’s Work Fleetvan

• CATEGORIES: Features

Mike shared a newspaper ad related to his job as a newspaper carrier. He purchased and drove a Jeep Fleetvan to deliver the newspapers.

He writes, “I drove this Jeep Fleetvan for many years, working for Suburban Newsdealers, Clifton NJ. Back then, (late 70’s early 80’s) there was “loose talk” about newspapers being delivered to your home by computer, nobody believed it.

This was a company I worked for in the late 60’s, in NJ common practice to have motor routes home delivering close to 1000 copies a day. The guy I worked for had 2 fleetvans, one for parts. Both eventually ended up in the junk yard up the street from where I worked. I wanted to drag it home but no place to store it, besides, my dad would of had a S__T fit.”
