1946 CJ-2A Atkinson, WI $2000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This has an early body.

“I thought I would throw my Willys on here to see if there was any interest. It is a 46, has a ford 302, ford 9″ rear end with a spool, dana 44 front end, dana 300 twin stick transfer case, and runs and drives pretty well. It does need some work. It could use new leaf springs (which I have) the lights wired, a little body work, and gauges hooked up. I was using it as a big ATV, but lost access to the land I was driving it on. I don’t have a title for it, but I can get one for it if that is a deal breaker. I don’t NEED to sell it, but I want to see what I might be able to get for it since I don’t use it any more. Don’t be afraid to make me an offer. It’s a fun little toy or a drivable project that would be pretty bad ass when it’s finished.

I’m asking $2000 or best offer”

1946 CJ-2A San Juan Mountains, Co eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

This appears pretty stock.  It will probably restore pretty nicely.

“Serial number is 35945.  Odometer shows 36,262 miles and I am told that this is original mileage.  Has been garaged for many years.  All original.  Clear title.  Used to tool around the mountains of Southwestern Colorado.  Good running condition.  Four wheel drive works well in both high and low range.  Since it has been in Colorado all its life, no rust problems.  Has been repainted.

After it came out of storage, I had the following repairs done to it to return it to a safe driving condition;

  • all hoses and belts have been replaced
  • new distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs and wires
  • front differential cover replaced
  • radiator flushed and new antifreeze added.
  • left rear brake drum rebuilt
  • new steering bell crank and drag link
  • new battery

Good tires, also has three other tires and wheels.  Has two sets of doors with hardware.  One set is original.  Has the back cover.  Comes with owners manual, mechanics manual and two boxes of extra parts.  Has Warn locking hubs.

A true classic that has not been messed with or altered !”

1949 CJ-2A Forestville, Wi $850

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

The body, windshield (square washers) and grille appear to be from an early ’46.

“Great running CJ2A Jeep with lockout hubs and starts great with strong engine…. body not so good but good enough for a cottage beater or workhorse around the farm… has a Wisconsin title and original rims with digger type tires…. brakes do not work, lights probably not also, but more uses than a 4 wheeler ATV!!…. Had planned on putting a different tub on the jeep and fixing it up but I have to many jeeps already and its to good to part out…. parts alone are well worth the 850.00 so the price is firm… will consider taking a different jeep in on partial trade, or jeep parts as I do have racks of parts that I use for projects…call 920-856-65three nine…. scammers wanting to send check with shipper need not respond…. ”

UPDATE.  Was $12,500 **SOLD**

(05/21/2012) Note the golf cart story 🙂

“1946 Willys CJ-2A Jeep Very Early Civilian (VEC) Outstanding Condition!  This restored gem may be the cleanest ’46 you have ever seen.  No rust, no problems, everything works, it steers and stops like it did when new.  Has recent new master cylinder installed.  New exhaust system.  Even the grase fittings have been replaced.  6 volt battery is 1 year old.  Engine and transmission have been rebuilt and work great!  Fires right up and goes.  No smoke or missing.  Vehicle has been in our local Independence Day Parade 4 years in a row and gets lots of applause.  This is a real head turner.  Has small dent on driver’s side top bow holder where ex-girlfriend’s disobiedient son ran into it with my golf cart.  Jeep is here-they are gone!  I am turning my attention to other vehicle restorations and can’t keep them all.

Engine # is CJ2A 102908. I will throw in a rough colum shift assy I got from another Jeep, although it may not be complete. I do not have the top bows or any other accessories.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Sidney, Oh **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay

(08/15/2012) The seller neglects to mention the lack of tool indents on the body.

“You are looking at my 1945 Willys Jeep with 3 speed on the column. Very sought after jeep as it is true to the descripition or history I have looked up on the Net as to column shift. There was only 1824 made the first year as they were made with the last of the war jeeps that came down assembly line. Now about this jeep. it was given a new body and paint, Paint color is harvest tan and if you go to color code for 1945 at kasier willys catalog it is a brown like color. it has had all wiring replaced, It is still original 6 volt but with new wires. Engine was gone through a few years back and purrs like a kitten. All numbers match as being the frame tag, inner hood tag and the dash tags. All shown in the pictures. There is no rust. Only problem area is around windshield frame as it might need fixed in a few years but does not look bad at this time. i also have the original hitch that goes to the jeep as it needs painted and bolted on. Really nice original hitch. I have had several comments on how unique it is and it turns alot of heads when it rides down the road. As many people see the old military jeeps from that year but hardly see a CJ2A civilian jeep today.”
