Could be a good project. The roll cage does not look very heavy.

“Custom 1947 CJ2A for sale. Stretched 12″ on a Scout II frame. Chevy 350 engine with np435 4spd transmission. Ended up having too many vehicles to keep this project alive. The jeeps itself is about 90% complete. Just needs some final wiring and brake work. This jeep will make an awesome camping/wheeling rig when complete! Will need to be towed as I don’t have access to a trailer”

Year? CJ-2A w/Rear Box Centralia, WA $650

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual • TAGS: , .

Dan spotted this crazy thing. The transmission cross member suggests it is a 2A and the grille suggests it is most likely a ’46.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/cto/d/flathead-willys-jeep-with/6724862540.html

“I’m selling an old flat fender flathead willys Jeep. This was a barn find, I know very little about it’s history and have no paper work on it. All I know is that it came from Canada and it was used as a snow plow at one time, it made its way down to Washington and then sat in a barn for 40 years. Very interesting custom body with suicide doors. Both door latches and roll down windows work. Has PTU gearbox on rear bumper but the drive shaft from the transmission is missing. Engine is in ruff shape, I have not tried to turn it over yet. Drive train seams to be in working order. What you see is what you get. I will leave it on my flatbed trailer so I can deliver it to you. I will deliver it as far as Idaho and Northern California for a charge of $1 a mile.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/21/2018) Apparently, this was a mail jeep. It’s got a top that fits it (CJ-6 top perhaps?). It runs, it drives, and is a bit different.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/264950400715602

“1946 Willys cj2a has had lots of new parts on it over the past couple years new brakes rebuilt carburetor rebuilt generator(still on 6 volts), new tires inner tubes and powder coated wheels I know I’m going to forget alot of stuff. The only issues that I had with it are that it leaks and burns oil. So no long distance trips with it. It does run it does Drive and the 4 wheel drive works. High and low. I know I’ve spent more than $2,000 in Parts on it, for instance the wheels and tires alone where a thousand plus almost $800 for the brake system. master cylinder and all, just to name a few. It’s not pretty but it works. I’m looking to get $3,500 for it CASH only. Price is negotiable slightly. Thanks and there’s one thing I forgot to mention it used to be a mail truck back in the day and I do have the steel top that was originally on it. That’s why the body is extended about 12 inches in the back.”
