1949 CJ-2A Atascadero, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2400.

(12/23/2012) It’s a pretty pricey project.  The paperwork is missing, too.

“This is a 1949 Willy’s Jeep CJ2A. 4 Cylinder Flat, Engine was rebuild in 2002 (never driven since). The jeep is a nearly completed project with many original parts.
The following work has been done and up-front, I am a certified welder, metal fabrication journeyman / Blacksmith from Germany.
– Rebuild floor with proper tube- frame
– Rebuild bed with proper tube- frame
– Rebuild foldable Windshield, new glass and seals
– Built a 20 gal gas tank that goes across the entire jeep with barriers inside to avoid slushing. (toolbox from passenger seat was beyond repairs)
– Built Seat-mounts and purchased new Seats
– Custom Heavy Duty Bumpers
– Re-arched all four Leaf-springs
– Replaced all four shocks
– Lots of body work

New seats with heavy duty mounts. Custom bumpers front and back. Rebuild steering gear box. (still a huge play) Reinforcement and accentuation with diamond plate.
Repaired and reinforced frame where needed. Rebuild all four leaf springs to proper hight and arch. 4 new shocks, new wiper and rear lights. I have 4 fairly new rims that would replace the ones currently on the Jeep.
The Engine would start fine if a mechanic would spend an hour with it, since I have never touched it in 8 years. I also do not have paperwork for the Jeep anymore. I would be more than happy to pay the DMV fee for re-registration once the Jeep is sold.
I am selling this nice project Jeep, simply because I bought that prior to having Children and a House. I simply do not want to spend the time on something I would rarely use.”

I’m sure I have posted this one before, but I couldn’t find it . . . nice looking rig.


V-8 Aluminum Block Either Buick or Pontiac Version. Stick Shift with Twin Stick 4 Wheel Drive. Very solid tub not your everyday rust bucket. New Best top Soft top and doors Complete. Nice full set of Super Swampers on Aluminum Rims, New Upholstered High Back Bucket Seats and Rear Bench Seat Complete, Nice Full Set of Guages & Brand New Painless Wiring Kit with New Fuse Block Panel, New Heater Box Assembly Under Dash, Tilt Steering Column Installed, Heavy Duty 6 Point Roll Cage, The Trailer is a Custom Built Drop Pocket Jeep Fitted Trailer. Very Well Built and Tows Great because it is low to the ground.
JUST THOSE ITEMS ARE ALMOST $7,000 IN COST. Again the motor has sat for almost 10 years expect to go through it properly, it is still a project at this point. The front of the frame was extended to accomodate longer springs and a better ride as well as a winch pocket in front of the radiator. Was working on a spring over lift conversion, so minor steering issues need finished prior to driving.
