1948 CJ-2A-Truck Priest River, ID $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

This may be one of the custom CJ-2A trucks sold out of Spokane (or it is a truck chassis with modified 2A body). This might differ from the “CJ-2Ls”, which had extended bodies to match the longer frames. It would be interesting to compare this frame with the CJ-2L frame. The half-top could be a remodeled Worman full-top.

This bottom ad describes a long-wheel base jeep with half cab made of wood. It’s plausible a similar vehicle was made with a metal half cab.

“I take cash or PayPal. Firm on price. First with payment takes it. Located in Shipshewana, IN. 1959 Willys Jeep CJ5 with Auburn Jeep-A-Trench. AgriJeeps were a standard CJ with aftermarket farm equipment, making a dual-purpose vehicle.

This is one of very few operational trencher Jeeps left. I can send you a video of it trenching my backyard. This particular trencher is the latest, greatest version available for the Jeep. It sits inside the bed, rather than hanging off the back. It removes quite a bit of stress from the chassis and body. Hydraulic boom raise/lower and gear-driven chain. Has a new heavy duty clutch kit, fuel tank, fuel pump, lines. Tires all hold air. Runs and drives nice.

2 Circa 1970? Brochures From Switzerland

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International • TAGS: , .

Titled Geschlossener Jeep fur Sommer und Winter, these two brochures came from Switzerland. The majority of the images show configurations for the CJ-6, but a CJ-3A looking jeep is shown as is a CJ-5. You can see one brochure has “72” written on it, which *might* be a reference to 1972? Those seem like some nice configurations of well-built tops.

1946? CJ-2A? Bringhurst, IN $4250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4250.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

Just pulled it out of our barn for the first time in over 40 years. My grandpa used it as a snowplow and it’s just been sitting since (metal warehouse on a concrete floor).

Don’t really know much about it other than what you can see in the pictures. Comes with a spare tire and the original snowchains. Only 17,094 original miles!

Don’t have the title, but I do have a bunch of old registration forms, as well as the Power of Attorney paperwork you would need to get a replacement title.

Two left tires are seized, other than that don’t know anything about it mechanically.”

Sears Deluxe Full and Half Tops McMurray, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD**

This seller has a half and a full top for sale. He’s calling the white full top a Meyer hardtop, but it looks to be an aluminum Deluxe Sears top ($400). The other one is a sears half aluminum top ($325). Both of these tops appear in this vintage Sears ad from the CJ-3B page.

“Aluminum Willys jeep tops. These are 2A/3A tops. Both are in great shape. I decided to go another direction.

1. Meyers Industries full cab and doors. Glass is good in the top but it needs new glass for one of the doors. Rear hatch opens and handles are present. $325.00 sears-full-top-pa
2. Sears deluxe half cab and doors. It has been disassembled and stripped to bare aluminum. I have the hardware to put it back together. It has the side mirror, door handles, and working lock with keys. Windows are plexiglass and could use some cleanup but are usable. I do have the rear panel with window that’s not in the picture. It wasn’t needed to test fit the top. $400.00″
