“I am selling a 1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A that we’ve owned for 20 years. It is in really good condition for its age with some normal rust under the floorboards which have been repaired. It has a 4 cylinder Willys engine which runs really good. The clutch works great and the 3 speed transmission and transfer case shifts very well. The brakes work as they should. There is some play in the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself is not original as it was replaced by my husband so he could fit in the driver seat! Electrical was converted to 12 volts. The tires are like new and the seats were reupholstered and have no tears in them. It comes with a 6000# Ramsey electric winch with a wired remote control. It also has a tow bar which is included.
Some issues: there is a small oil leak at the rear differential bearing shaft, the passenger side windshield is cracked, the odometer and the fuel gauge are not working and there are some minor electrical issues with the lights.
If you are familiar with the 1946 Willys, you know that it is a good investment if you decide to have it fully restored. For information, the NADAguides list it at $7,450 for Low Retail, $19,100 for Average Retail and $33,400 for High Retail.
I am asking $7,950.00 or best offer. CASH only. Serious inquiries only please.”

“First generation of mass produced consumer Jeeps/Willys. This is a project vehicle. It currently has a Buick v6 swap in it (super common, it’s what jeep used from the factory in the 60’s and gives a substantial power upgraded from the sluggish 60hp inline 4). I’m not sure if it runs or not, never got around to testing it. Dried coolant around one of the heads leads me to believe it will need a rebuild. Odometer reads around 50k miles, not sure when the swap was completed though. Rust is minimal considering the vehicles age. The worst in the standard spots under the driver seat and near the side rails. Body’s straight, shows no signs of ever being in an accident. Clean title in hand.”

“This is a very early production, perhaps the very first few civilian jeeps( CJ2A ) that rolled out after the war.

Originally column shift with all linkages in place needing only the shift stalk to take it back to original arrangement.

These very early productions after the war for civilian use were installed with the same body as the MB’s except for the modification of a tail gate, side filling neck gas tank, spare side mounted and windshield with WILLYS on it.

A rare find as this jeep was delivered in Arizona and has remained here since then with one family as stated by the family from whom I bought the vehicle. Last registered in 1970’s and then put away in storage.
