1947 CJ-2A New Boston, MI $2000


It has no title, but it does have a great service bumper.

“I haven’t had time to work on it so keeping it In my garage is useless. I put a rebuilt carb, new starter and seats in it. It ran before I started digging into it but a little elbow grease will get it going. I bought it 3 years ago this summer but the other owner couldn’t find the title so it still has no title. Call or text 17347320416. Ben is the name”

1947 CJ-2A with extras Kasson, MN $4500


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $4500

(11/15/2012) Bob spotted this unusual farm jeep for sale.  I haven’t seen a front bumper quite like that one; Maybe it’s a different version of a service/garage front bumper?  It looks like it’s had a little body work on the side.  The lift is some kind of Ford/Farmall adaptation according to John. The CJ-2A page had a discussion about this from 2010: http://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/1947-willys-my-first-jeep_topic15262.html

“Decided to sell my 47 Willys. Bought it at an auction a couple years ago. I have done some work to it but it still needs more and just don’t have the time for it. It has a four cylinder ford motor in it. I put a rebuilt carb on it, but it still doesn’t idle very well. Starter is new, brake lines are new, Master cylinder is rebuilt but brakes are not working. Needs wheel cyliders most likely.
It has a factory PTO on it. It also has a 3 point hitch on it. Don’t know if is factory option or not but it is pretty cool!
There are a lot of other things mounted on it, not sure what some of them are for. My best guess is that it had a wing plow mounted on it a some point.
Was going to use it for food plots and other various tasks around the farm. I bought a tractor so I don’t really need it any more. Hopefully someone can give it the time and attention it deserves.
Can deliver for an extra charge. Thanks, Pete”

A thread of gas station pictures forwarded to me by Craig & Colin includes a picture of a service station jeep truck similar to the one from yesterday.

1946 CJ-2A Lake Livingston, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4200

Check out the two large additions to the front bumper. Any thoughts on what they were built to do? (Push, Haul, Hunting Seat?)

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ2-A. Clean TX title, new antique lic. plate, starts right up and runs and drives great. Recent charcoal paint, good black vinyl seats. Converted to 12 volt alt. Good tires with aluminum wheels. Front tow bar included. The fold down windshield is missing. (Available at JC Whitney for about $500. ) We enjoy putting around the lake without it. Radio is no good and the emergency brake is gone, though I’ve never missed it. This is a really fun and eye-catching 67 year old toy. Very little wiggle room on this price and cash only! Tankx for your interest.”

1948 CJ-2A Wake Forest, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

Walter spotted this CJ-2A.  How about that unique rack on the front?  Given that bumper, this was some kind of purpose-modified jeep.  The body doesn’t appear too bad either.  Maybe that rack was on a car truck?

“This is a 48′ Jeep Willys. This is a project that I wanted to restore myself but I just dont have enough time. It needs a full body restoration but it has its original drive traine. I do have have the title. Please no txts or emails.”

1951 CJ-3A Clearfield, UT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500

(10/05/2012) This hasn’t been driven since 1985.  However, it has been garaged since then.  The body is supposed to be solid.  This may be worth a look.

“Classic Willys CJ-3A. This jeep has been in my family since the 1960’s. It was hauled from California to Idaho in the late 1990’s where it has been garaged until I recently brought it down to Clearfield to sell it. It has never seen a Utah "salty-road" winter, so the body and frame do not have the rust that you see on typical Utah Jeeps that are 30-40 years newer (body, floor, and frame are solid). I put in a running 289 engine (V8 out of a Rancho) with 302 heads (bored and ported) in it back in 1988 along with a new clutch and throwout bearing, but I remain time-challenged, so it remains unrestored. The mileage noted is actual for the entire jeep (with the exception of the engine). The last time this jeep was driven was 1985. The last time I started the engine was 1989.In addition to the upgraded engine, it comes with a roll bar, custom bumpers (front & back) with a tow hitch on the front, and (2) five gallon Jerry Cans. I will also throw in the full roll cage (custom bent for this jeep with heavy piping, but not assembled) along with a set of 4 tires and rims from a 1968 CJ5 (tires still have good tread). It has been a dream of mine since the mid-80’s to restore this jeep, but alas, we purchased running CJ5 for my son to use, thus we are looking for a good home for the 3-A where it can be restored to its former glory. I am asking $1,500 O.B.O. with the extra set of tires and rims or $1,200 without.”

Year? CJ-5 Barryville, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

The seller lists this as a M-38A1, but it looks like a CJ-5 to me.  Given the bumper, I wonder if this wasn’t a service station jeep at some point.  Here’s another example of the same bumper.

“i got a 1950 something willys jeep runs drives no brakes thats why every corner has a dent in it lol needs gas tank running it out of a gallon can now has plow frame im trying to get a plow for it if i find one it goes with it will need a tune up and exhaust work great little plow truck the motor is a Fhead 3 speed trans it is what it is so if your looking for a cheap plow jeep thanks for looking.”

1946 CJ-2A Lakeville, MN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

With a bumper like that, I wonder if this was a service station jeep or a vehicle pusher.

“1946 cj2a numbers good, I bought this 25years ago as a project, didn’t get very far, it was sand blasted, primed, top coat camo for hauling deer out,please call with questions Richard@ 612-889-4642 also have spare parts and extra hood.”

1961 Truck Hallowell, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2800.

This needs some brake work, but other wise looks solid.  It’s been modified slightly, especially the running boards on the side.  I think they look pretty good.

“61 Willys truck flathead 6 cyl. 3 speed. Runs and drives good, only front brakes are working.
Body and frame are solid, rear fenders are modified and has full length running boards. 31 in.
tires with good tread but some weather cracks.Has push type front bumper with plow lift, pump
and valve under hood for a 4 way snow plow. No blade included. A neat old truck to fix up.
Asking $2800 may consider trades, try me!”

1946 CJ-2A Herbster, WI $2500


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500

This looks like a good price despite some of the mods.  It has a rear PTO.  I’m wondering if this was an ex-service-station given the way the bumper has been modified.  Note the updated dash.

“1946 Willys Jeep. 4cyl, 12 volt, good running gear, good tires, plow, extra heavy winch, canvas top fair, seats fair garage kept but has rust as you would expect for a 1946. Motor has not been started for one year but should start after charging battery.”

1947 CJ-2A Detroit, Mi $3500


1947_cj2a_detroitUPDATE: The price has dropped to $3500

The paint job on this is interesting.  The bumper is pretty wild; I guess the jeep was used for pushing?

“The body is in good shape it runs and drives tires are good dont leak has a toe bar on the front with a custom front bumper.”
