“Check out this recently restored 4×4 Willys Jeep. Its about as good as it gets for this model. Its also more versatile than a Side by Side/ UTV, since its street legal and has a tow bar. Best of all its easy to work on and appreciates in value. Due to the large amount of spam on this site, I will only respond to emails which contain your phone number. If the ad is up its still available.”

“Fully restored 1948 Willys Jeep for sale. The vehicle is currently in long-term storage and can be viewed upon request. Restored by an experienced classic car enthusiast who also restored two Model As, a Packard, and a REO Flying Cloud. The car was fully operational and regularly driven in holiday parades (i.e., Brunswick and Valley City Fourth of July and Old Fashioned Days Parades) immediately prior to the restorer’s death in December 2017. Has been in covered storage since that time, so may need a minor tune-up.

Being sold by the current owner and titleholder. Title can be transferred immediately upon payment. Purchase must transport from the storage unit.”

1947 CJ-2A Madison, VA $23,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

I get no joy in pointing out problematic ad, but this one made me shake my head more than usual. This low mileage jeep already has a gas stain running down the side. Phrases like “Fully military spec’d” and “Very authentic” make it all the worse. Finally, it’s listed as a 1945 (to the sellers credit, it is labeled an Army Jeep Tribute), when the serial number (which the builder used as the hood number also) clearly indicates it is a 1947.

https://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/d/pratts-1945-willys-army-jeep-tribute/7031418171.html

“Parade ready Jeep done up as a US Air Force vehicle. It is a 4×4, 3 speed w/reverse, hi/lo range. Has been converted from 6 to 12VDC with alternator. Gauges work, has windshield wiper and period heaters for driver/passenger. Has a canvas half-top and many other new parts. The original flathead four runs well, new fuel pump, currently needs exhaust work/muffler. Comes with a custom made tow-bar and vehicle cover. Currently registered with Antique plates.
VIN # CJ2A185125…………….a unique ride, and a real head turner.
I am 6’2″ and 230 lbs and don’t fit well into this Jeep, a little too tight. As far as I know, this has only been used for parades since being restored by previous owner a number of years ago, and I have only put about 25 miles on it.”

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A This is a really a great little Willys Jeep as this is the year the Willys became available to the general public after the war. This is truly a great little restoration with everything from a new carburetor to new exhaust. Has approximately 77K original miles and runs good. Starts up fairly easily and runs strong. Original Flathead 4 cylinder Engine. Has new carburetor, oil filter, fan, newer starter, belts, exhaust, etc. and I’d recommend a new wire harness. Newer seats, and a new cover for it. This jeep shows like a 1946 Jeep Willys with some scratches on the paint and a little rust on the wheels so you know. It has a Clean Title with two VIN numbers listed at 72298@72705. It’s a great little jeep and just one that I’m not going to move and am downsizing.”
