Wow … just wow!

“WWII Willys MB.
This vehicle is fairly complete but not running. 134Lhead motor, T84 transmission and transfer case. The body has been modified with a hard top and other unique additions. Over all this is a great vehicle for parts etc. Good running gear, front rear and original GI Ross stearing box. The parts are worth alot so $1500 takes it. I’m looking for the title but if not found I can do a notarized bill of sale.”

1946 CJ-2A Flat Rock, MI $3500

• 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.”

1953 CJ-3B Duluth, MN No Price

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

Here’s an odd one.

https://duluth.craigslist.org/cto/d/willys-134-cj3/6642627461.html

“I have a complete 1953 Willys CJ3-B jeep chassis with a custom roll cage. I have had this jeep for over ten years. The previous owner had the new roll cage installed and never got around to getting the jeep running. I had it running for a little while but then went off to college and haven’t gotten back to in years. I was hoping to have a place to work on it soon but I could use the space in my garage. I am not in a hurry to sell it so the right price will help. I am posting in hopes of finding someone who would be willing to trade an outdoor sauna for it. Please email me your name and phone number and I will call you.”

1948 ‘CJ-2B’ Attack Engine Riot Control Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Derek did the initial research and writeup on this project, correctly identifying it as a CJ-2A. Check out the pre-restoration pics and info here: http://cj3b.info/Fire/NewSalem.html

The folks at the New Salem Fire Department near Albany, New York, recently ‘restored’ what they call a “CJ-2B Attack Engine”. And, to be fair, I suppose this CJ-2A has undergone some major changes. Perhaps it should be relabeled a 1948 CJ-2RC (Riot Control) jeep?

You can read about it here: http://newsalemfire.com/new-salem-fire-apparatus-Jeep-CJ-2B.php
