1946 CJ-2A New Hartford, CT $9750

Listed as a 1947, this appears to be an early 1946, as it has the tool indents. I’m not sure how the seller decided upon the “original ID numbers” for the hood.

“I bought this Jeep 2 years ago with the intent of using it as a second vehicle. It soon became obvious that it was to good at the tender age of 70+ years to put on the road on a daily basis. The original “Go Devil” L134 engine has been rebuilt. The original body with the exception of a few patches (See dashboard pic) is in excellent shape. Electrical system has been converted to 12 volt. Transmission, Transfer case, and Front locking hubs all in excellent working condition. I re-wired lights so that I could have signal lights, re-built the master cylinder, replaced the brake arm to correct “pedal wobble,” and replaced front end brake lines. Finally I re-painted the hood with original ID numbers and the “Broken” Invasion Circle Star. Tires are good, but in order to complete the “Military Look” it should have military tires (around $500 for a set).

There is also a canvas top (see last pic), but since it is not military, I removed it. It will go with the sale.

This is an excellent running Jeep at an excellent price. Price is firm. Please contact me only if you are a serious buyer.”

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ-2A … It has always been a dream of mine to own a 40’s vintage jeep decked out in WWII fashion like this ever since I was a young man. I’ve had my fun with it, but now I am more concerned about needed garage space vs. having this. I will sell for the right price, but I certainly won’t give it away.

First and foremost, I do have a clean title to the vehicle. If you don’t follow these things that closely, that is a somewhat rare occurrence.

The jeep is in VERY good shape with very little rust and a body that is in great shape (original body, not a fiberglass version). Here’s what I’ve done to it since owning it:

Oversized hubs? “The chassis remains exceptionally clean, and the over sized hubs on the sturdy axles are designed to keep the Jeep alive in the worst of situations.”

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ2A. It’s hard not to get excited about driving the bedrock of freedom, especially when it’s this price, $9500. The CJ2A was the first Willy’s Jeep used for peacetime duty (CJ = Civilian Jeep), but you can easily see its armed forces origins on this early example. Thinly veiled with proper headlights and a tailgate, it’s the same basic style that brought victory in World War II. It’s this level of respect and care that’s the true key to why this Jeep looks so spectacular today.

This Jeep has three levers on the floor, one for the three-speed manual transmission and the other two for the two-speed transfer case. The middle one selects 2 or 4-wheel drive, while the one on the far right selects high and low ranges. If that seems confusing, the original instructions are mounted on the dash. These weren’t about all-out power, but the 134 cubic-inch inline-four was actually a big reason why the military choose Willy’s for manufacturing the wartime Jeep. The Go Devil motor proved to provide good torque and was as reliable as an American solider.

CJ2A fires up easily, idles nicely, and shifts with accuracy. The chassis remains exceptionally clean, and the over sized hubs on the sturdy axles are designed to keep the Jeep alive in the worst of situations. Steel wheels with reproduction military-style tires provide the finishing touch for just the right look.”
