Does not run at the moment.

“Jeep Willy’s rat rod, Custom fabricated Jeep willys and Toyota/Nissan truck bed together with chevy 350 engine, 4bl carb, auto trans and 8 lug truck axles. 2wd. I purchased off ebay several years ago and had shipped to GA and it ran and lot drove then. (NOT STREET LEGAL, no turn signals/brake lights). frame is orginal jeep with extensions welded on to create longer wheelbase. It appears to be chevy suspension.

It has sat for over 3 years in my shop, so it will need to be towed and gas tank probably flushed out. I do not have to sell and will not accept any offers, just trying to help finance my home remodel/addition if possible if not I will keep this Jeep in the shop until I have time to finish.”

1946 CJ-2A Sturgeon Bay, WI eBay


Buzz found this crazy looking CJ-2A.

“1946 Willys jeep with an old school repower. Has a 1950’s flathead ford engine, this jeep ran three years ago but needed a pull to get started. One head was removed to inspect the cylinders. It looks like this motor may have the original bore but is ready for a rebuild. The distributer was removed and is missing. I will throw one in if I can find one in the shed. The body behind the firewall is made of plywood and fiberglass, it was nicely made but alot of the wood should be replaced if you choose to keep it as is. Original jeep dash and front sheet metal is in good condition. The frame is mostly solid but does have some issues at the front of the rear leaf springs and it has been notched for the steering gear to clear the engine. The engine is coupled to the jeep transmission with a rare adapter. Will be sold with a clear 1956 Willys title. The buyer will have 30 days to pick it up, if you send a trailer I can help load.”

1946 CJ-2A Gardiner, MT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $995

Bob’s jeep had about this much jeep left. Some used leftover parts and created something neat. I think that has some potential.

“1946 Jeep, Willy’s Overland, CJ2A. Serial No. 68995. Starts and runs good. Need Bonded Title. The brakes need wheel cylinders replaced. Original L-head Engine. Had a rod bearing replaced-runs smooth. New 6-volt battery. Good fuel tank. Transmission and transfer case shifts smoothly. 4 tires – just okay. The bench seat, is the back seat out of a suburban. Great for Ranch or just fun running around. This Jeep is BEAUTIFUL, but only in the eyes of the beholder!”
