2 1946 CJ-2As Langhorne, PA $1500


The more complete jeep has a gear shift that appears to the driver’s side of the transmission gear shift. That could be a crankshaft PTO engagement shifter. The hardtop looks similar to a Porter and Reed, but the front of the roof doesn’t slope down at the correct angle. I’m not sure what top it is.


“This is for both Willies Jeeps 1946. One title. Use for parts or get a title and use both to build one. The second one has a electric hydraulic pump that goes with”

1964 RHD DJ-3A Shingle Springs, CA $1500


This is a relatively rare right-hand-drive DJ-3A with an even rarer automatic transmission (see 4th pic… shifter to the right of steering wheel). Unclear how much value is here, but certainly some parts value at the very least. It has an f-head.


“I had big plans for this cool little mail jeep but I have too many projects. It is a 1964 DJ3A dispatcher. They stopped making flat fender jeeps in 52 but they had so many parts left over they continue to make flat fender delivery vehicles into the mid 60s. It is very rare, I haven’t seen another one for sale. It does not run or drive, it is a project. I have a clean clear CA title in hand. The Jeep was last registered in 1985 so it is well out of the system.  any questions feel free to ask. Delivery available within reason.  i’m located in shingle Springs, Northern California”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/11/2020) Needs some work and doesn’t run at the moment.

“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”

(12/05/2020) A ran-when-parked specimen (though looks like it was parked many years ago). It includes a set of rare X-Style Desert Dogs which look little used. Unclear how much value is here, but the price seems to overestimate the value.

1966 CJ-6 Spanish Fork, UT **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500.

It turns over, but doesn’t start at the moment. The Kelly hardtop looks to me to be the Custom Full Cab, rather than a Safari top.

“Price reduced…
This Jeep is actually a CJ6 safari edition. It has a pto pinch with snow plow attachment. I don’t have the plow. The engine turns over but don’t start due to the fuel system being disconnected to be cleaned. Just don’t have time to finish it.”
