The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .
Doug spotted this former Shriner’s jeep. It’s listed as a 1953, but it appears to be a post 1956 3B.

Dan spotted this nicely restored wagon. Despite the price, there is still a little work left.
“98 % complete needs a few final touches…Everything gone through…no rust, new paint inside and out, rubber, glass, headliner, white wall tires new or replated chrome original radio…rewired 12 volt system and electric wipers. Everything else is back to stock much more replaced. It has the F-6 161 Hurricane 685 Engine very rare 1952-1955. Sandblasted to bare metal professional paint job. This was a project I did while taking care of my terminally ill wife, she has passed and it is why I’m selling it. I’m willing to negotiate with shipping. A perfect parade vehicle…the PICs speak for themselves…I can email more. Call for more information.”
(09/29/2015) Stretched with other mods, it appears to have the original engine.
“This is a heavily modified 1952 Willy’s Jeep. It has a Rusty’s based 3 bar suspension front and rear. The body has stretched 10″ and custom 18″ wheels and off road tires bolted up to the Dana axles. It is also equipped with a 6 point roll cage and a PSC hydraulic steering unit. It has the original flathead four cylinder and Solex carb. Only 320 miles since restoration.”

Has some unusual extras, but the jeep still may be a good price. The engine is 134 CI, not CC. It is 2,199 CCs.
“This is a classic. Starts easy, runs great. This is a four-wheel drive 1949 Willys Jeep, the first year of the model CJ3A. It features a Willys “Go Devil” L-Head 134CC four-stroke water cooled gas engine. Rebuilt top to bottom in 2000 with less than 500 miles usage since restoration. Three speed manual transmission. Converted to 12V system. Soft-top included. Clean title.”
“This beautiful 1946 CJ2A Willys Jeep has been completely restored to a “daily driver” level. These vehicles are becoming very rare as most have either been destroyed or heavily modified. Few are available with the stock engine, power train and body.
1946 was the very first year a civilian “Jeep” was produced – with most parts converted directly from WWII production lines. At 70 years old, it remains a very functional and practical historical vehicle. Gearing is very low in these vehicles – they will go almost anywhere with both high and low range 4 wheel drive. The front hubs are locking/unlocking. This Willys makes an excellent “around town” driver, cruise-in and parade car, as well as a great hunting and exploring vehicle. An overdrive can easily be installed if desired (it does not currently have one). This is NOT a freeway cruising vehicle – it is a 40-45 mph driver!
This CJ2A has had a “frame off” restoration, with a complete rebuild of the engine, transmission and transfer case. Details can be provided on this work. It is in as good as, if not better condition than a new vehicle. The stock Willys L134 “Go Devil” engine powers it.
The floors, and rear bed have been completely rebuilt with heavy gauge steel, and box tubing for reinforcement (replacing the sheet metal/wood original design). The rear portion of the frame has been rebuilt using steel box tubing – providing a much stronger frame. Steps have been installed on both sides of the vehicle. The stock driver’s seat has been moved rearward about 3 inches to provide a much more comfortable ride. Seats have marine grade vinyl covers.
Safety features include an all new braking system – including a dual reservoir master cylinder and modern 11″ self adjusting drum brakes. Retractable seat belts are installed. The front and rear bumpers are heavy channel steel. Continue reading →

(06/10/2014) Still needs some restoration of some type.
“Restored (80% ) 1955 Willys M-170 Front-line Ambulance Asking $12,000 but will talk price, This is a rarity , I know of about 20 that have been restored. This is a great project vehicle and at this moment it is a luxury, I would like to see it go to someone willing to make it 100%”
“Hello Craigslist. Here i have a true classic 1958 willys jeep. It is in running conditions. so you can test drive it. It has a pretty good bone white color paint. This jeep is pretty solid and is being sold as is with pink slip in hand.”
“NICE AND very RARE, 46′ cj-2a column shift Willys jeep serial #293xx. Nice overall condition, has been in barn storage for over 20 years.
What makes this unit more desirable is the fact that it is FACTORY built on a MB military chassis. Only a few hundred were built this way starting around serial number #29000.
Documented by a well known jeep expert, this is one of the batch of those hybrid jeeps. It is surmised that there was either a shortage of cj chassis or a bunch of leftover Military frames that needed to be used up…..not more then a handful surviving.!
Whatever the reason, this is not a homemade conversion….there are about 22 modifications done to the MB frame to make it useable for the cj2a. All brackets and mounts are custom made and factory installed. Even the machine gun mount was trimmed to fit the body.
Mostly all original with Minor civilian mods. 6v, Original chain drive engine, t90 side shift transmission.
Very rare full pto unit with drum pulley, original to the jeep. Has new bearings..
Data tags and frame tag are exceptionally nice and undamaged.
Has rust thru in the toolbox and some hat channels. Not a rust bucket by any means. Not all dented up.
Will need full restoration to bring it back to former glory. Had a quick cosmetic makeover done…
Don’t miss out on this super RARE column shift cj2a….not something you see everyday. It deserves a museum quality restoration.”
“Willys Jeep 1948 CJ2A – $13,900.00. Will accept cashier’s bank check only. This is not a restoration. It was completely reconditioned, August 2000. I retained as many original parts as possible. The engine was completely cleaned and professionally overhauled. The tub was replaced with a new one. I kept the original frame, running gear, wheels, grille, bumper, windshield frame, fenders, seat frames, tailgate, spare tire mount, dash panel and gauges, steering wheel and column and all original I.D. tags.
New: clutch assembly, most seals and bushings, brake shoes, brake lines, master and wheel cylinders, wiring harness, radiator, seats, top, tires and tubes, exhaust system and starter. ”
