It looks like this has a once piece grill/fenders? The fenders have an indentation along each side. Gives the jeep a little different look.

1946 CJ-2A “Nellybelle II” Cave Creek, AZ **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE II: **Status Unknown. Was listed at $29,500 in Feb of 2020.

UPDATE: This was for sale in June of 2019 for $10k. Now it’s on sale for $29,500. This is a replica that reportedly was built for the museum. It wasn’t used on the actual show, based on the ads for this jeep that we’ve previously seen. The original Nelly Belle sold for $116,500 in 2010 and, subsequently, for $38,400 in 2018.

(02/22/2019) This was originally for sale in 2010.

https://classiccars.com/listings/view/1317090/1946-willys-cj2a-for-sale-in-north-scottsdale-arizona-85331

(from the 2019 ad) “This 1946 CJ-2A is an exact replica of the Jeep Nellybelle used in the Roy Rogers’ TV Show of the 1950’s. It was commissioned by Roy Jr., aka Dusty Rogers. It was used at the Roy Rogers Museum for the children to climb into so that the original Nellybelle would not get all that “abuse”. We have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as pictures we took with Dusty and his son, Dustin. We are also friends with the fine gentleman who built this jeep for Dusty.

It runs well, smokes a little (it’s old enough and Dusty said it always smoked).”

“V6 225 3 speed T14 manual transmission. It was redone to look nice with rustoleum tractor red paint and filler. It has wood floor and homemade truck bed. I redid brakes and have it running well. Plow pump was removed. Unique and road worthy, but not highway worthy yet. Not many out there and would be great off-road as 4wd works.”

Probably not a prototype vehicle or a relative to the CJ4, but a cool “missing link” CJ2a built with awesome craftsmanship 40+ years ago. Possibly a non-US made Jeep wagonette. Suicide doors latch. Great patina. This will be the coolest Jeep at Easter Jeep safari.”
