1947 CJ-2A Washington State eBay


UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(11/14/2012) This looks nice. It has a clever spare tire holder that uses part of the PTO bar. It’s worth a look.  The  custom undercarriage is lower than usual.

” 1947 Willys CJ2a. This is an easy driver for anyone. It was built for my mother to drive around. It has all the great Willys jeep modifications including:
Saginaw power steering

Dana 44 rear, Dana 27 front, 3:73 gears.
Turbo 350 automatic transmission with single stick Dana 20 transfer-case.
Adjustable front bucket seats (Drivers side has the wheel-well “notched” for more adjustment room- I am almost 6’3″ and can drive this comfortably.
Vent in windshield frame that can be opened for air flow (See pics)
Dome lights wired in hard top
M38 Military lightweight Arctic Top.
Swing out spare tire (see pics)
Two “stock style” gas tanks on passenger and drivers sides.
Near NEW tires

This Jeep was never used off the road. It will get around town and fly down the freeway just fine. This is a really snappy rig and will take off at the drop of hat. It gets lots of looks going down the road. The only trouble is the gas gauge which needs worked on and a small chip in the windshield which has a “glass sticker” on it to keep it from spreading. Please ask any questions. I am selling this in cooperation with my father.

The work was completed about 10 years ago on the jeep. It has always been garaged and rarely driven in the rain. It was a spring and summertime driver.
Alas, it’s top will keep you warm and dry (has heater and defroster). In heavy water (such as during washing or heavy rain) some water will gather in the front floor boards. We always just put a towel down there when washing. Someone could easily track the source of the water getting in, we just never did as it was a nice day driver.”

Did you know that Willys Overland introduced the CJ-3A in 1949 and then introduced the CJ-2A the next year?  That’s a surprise to me, too …. At least they did well with the rest of the history.  It is a good looking jeep.

The first CJ prototype (the Willys CJ-2) was introduced in 1944 by Willys, and the same basic vehicle stayed in production through seven variants and three corporate parents until 1986. A variant of the CJ is still in production today under license. The last CJs, the CJ-7 and CJ-8, were replaced in 1987 by the Jeep Wrangler., The Willys-Overland CJ-3A was introduced in 1949, and replaced the CJ-2A by the next year.

1953 CJ-3B Auburn, WA **SOLD**


UPDATE **SOLD** Was $7495

Check out the front bumper.  That’s one of the more unusual bumpers I’ve seen.  I might just have to go check that out tomorrow if I can make the time.  I find the angles and integrated approach to the winch appealing. The back is more standard, but looks good too.
