Glenn shared this jeep with a VEC CJ-2A body. Note the frame is described as “perfect” even though it appears modified at the front frame rails and, I suspect as a cheap lift, the rear spring hanger on the front springs has been modified.

“Almost completely rebuilt with a Jeep Dauntless V6. Frame is perfect, I’m trying to thin out my Jeep collection. It’s in primer black and is considered an early Jeep. Email only, no trades and cash only.”

“For sale is a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ2A. I believe this is a civilian Jeep. It has been owned by the same gentleman since 1989. He was a local guy in Marina, CA. This was his hunting rig that he drove for years. It ended up sitting for sometime as he got too old to drive it. But it is an original CA black plated car that has its clean title. Since we got the jeep we did a number of different things. It has an all new carburetor, rebuilt starter, new plugs, new points. We replaced the timing chain and a few other little things. Currently it is running and driving pretty well! It still obviously needs to be gone through some more but currently it will run and drive down the road, shift through all its gears well, has a working overdrive and even the old Koenig PTO winch is working perfectly. The tires are in great shape. The brakes I worked on a little bit, but it will need additional work. Working E-Brake and working lights! This jeep is solid all around and has very minimal rust.”
