“This is a really neat project for someone who has the time. This Jeep needs extensive bodywork and some frame work and most likely mechanical work like brakes etc. The battery is not good and there is an antifreeze leak that needs some more investigation. I took some pictures of the damaged areas just to set the tone.
Keep in mind nothing has been done to this jeep for many years.

The good news is its starts right up and the transmission shifts easily. It seems like everything is functional with the drive train. The hard top is unique and solid. The doors need some work. It has an electric plow lift and plow.
Its been around for a while but the mileage is relatively low.
I purchased it to keep me busy over the winter and it turns out other things more pressing took my time.

This jeep is not road worthy at this time but it could go right to work on a farm with a bit of work.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2750

(12/17/2018) I’m not sure which top that is.


“1948 Willy’s CJ-2A project Jeep with F-Head Engine. Ran when I bought it a few years ago but had a bad head gasket leak. I have replaced the head gasket, intake and exhaust gaskets, cleaned the valves and replaced the valve gasket, plus I have new gaskets for everything else. New plugs, belts, welded a hole in the gas tank, new water pump, new thermostat and new oil filter. I have also installed a tow bar. Still needs new battery and the tires are worn. Recently moved and just have time or a good place to wrench on it plus my son lost interest in working on it with me so figured it’s time for a new home. It needs the carb re-installed, fluids, battery and should be ready to run. Has some electrical issues but the lights work. Great project keep for someone to finish. $3000 or best offer.”

1948 CJ-2A Lakewood, CO $3500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/15/2019) Will need some work.


“I have a ’48 Jeep with 6′ Jacob’s blade….and for the last 20-years it’s been used to plow a small mountain driveway. I bought it last year thinking I would be able to use it on my mountain drive. However we ended up paving the road and it’s no longer needed. (In all honesty, it’s been just sitting since I brought it home). In that time the brakes have lost pedal, and I know the clutch needs adjusting. But it does run great has a 12v system, electric fuel pump and tire chains. It’s really pretty cool, and I hate to sell it, but….. Currently it’s at a friends house in Lakewood, so please call me to set up a time to see (buy?) it.”
