1947 CJ-2A Grand Coulee, Wa $1000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , .

1947_cj2a_grandcouleeUPDATE:  Price dropped to $850.  I assume the unusual windshield is due to the hard top.

Here’s a jeep with an unusual top. and it appears to be a lefty, though the tire is mounted pretty high.

“Project i never had time for, nearly complete except for a few parts that were taken by midnight shoppers. starter air cleaner,carb missing.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Vista, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  This seller also restored this CJ-2A with a similar theme.

A well executed and creative build.  These are exactly the kinds of non traditional restorations I’d like to see more of that properly record the wide and varied deployment of the jeep.

The builder/seller writes, “1946 Willys V.E.C. CJ2A #14, 422 – County Sheriff  Patrol Jeep: I’m relisting this beautiful Willys with a lower reserve. However, don’t make the mistake of believing that I’m giving it away!  I just recognize that the market is soft right now.  I know what I have put into this restoration.  This is my fourth and final restoration of a 1946 Willys Civilian Jeep (CJ) 2A.

I became interested in the 1946 CJ-2A because it was the first production 4 wheel drive vehicle available to the public and is the grandfather of all modern SUVs.  This particular CJ-2A restored as a Sheriff Patrol Jeep was restored as a tribute to my own Grandfather who was a deputy sheriff in Southern California during the 1940’s and early 1950’s.  This CJ-2A is a faithful restoration of the type patrol vehicle that may have been used by the sheriff in the California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona back-country. The Federal siren and all Unity lights are period vintage police equipment.  The STOP light on the left front fender is a vintage Griffin model used by Military Police on jeeps during the Second World War.

1942 GPW Madera, Ca $5500


1942_gpw_maderaKind of a funky paint job, but it would probably clean up well.

“Rare 1942 Ford Jeep WWII. During WWII Willys-Overland Co. could not produce enough jeeps to meet the war demand, thus Ford starting producing jeeps in the exact image of the Willys model so that the parts were interchangeable. Sense limited production were produced these jeeps are a rare find. The jeep has been garaged and in our family for over 20 years. For those collectors out there this jeep can easily be restored to its original glory. I believe the seats and rollbar and rear bumpre are the only changes made. The jeeps body and engine are in great condition, I drove the jeep this past weekend around the farm. Please send me an email at or call 559-446-1071 and leave a message if you are interested and we can arrange a viewing.”

1948 CJ-2A Springfield, Oh eBay


I am guessing the year of this jeep based on the serial number and the CJ-2A website production serial numbers.  This jeep includes a Monroe Lift.

“Nice CJ2A Willys Agri-jeep with a Monroe lift. starts and runs good. Monroe lift has been off of the jeep since the mid 1970s. The previous owner used it to run a bush-hog cut fields. Hydraulic hose are dryrotted and needs replaced. Tires and spare in good condition. comes with air cleaner, hydraulic pump (missing rubber bushing), resivor and control valve, PTO belt drive, PTO V belt pully. The body has rust and is not straight at all. Paint less that fair. leaks oil. It needs restored but i don’t have the time to dedicate to this project.”

1943 GPW West Seattle, Wa $2300


1943_gpw_westseattleUPDATE: I’m a little surprised this hasn’t been purchased already, but maybe the project is bigger than it appears.

This might be a good price.

“This is a 1943 Military Ford Jeep GPW vehicle. My father purchased this Jeep with hopes of restoring it to it’s original state. Unfortunately we have other vehicle and rental projects and just do not have the time. This a really a great Jeep and a classic. This is a perfect vehicle for someone looking to have a project and make it their own. The Jeep is in need of some rust repair and the installation of a new timing gear and timing chain. My Father has already purchased a new timing chain, timing gear, new transmission knobs, and new U-joints for the jeep and are all included in the sale. The jeep also comes with an spare engine, gas tank, tire, and a complete jeep manual booklet. What’s great is that they still make every part for this jeep. This is a great jeep and ready to be taken good care of. The price is firm only because we believe it is a very good deal and considering the jeep comes with a spare engine and the other parts mentioned above. If you would like further information regarding the jeep you can reach my father at 206-947-8153 and myself at 206-999-3809.”

1946 CJ-2A Washington, Pa **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay

“I went to great lengths to get this Jeep back to what it would have looked like after a few years in it’s original job.  The Jeep was painted it’s true color – Normandy Blue and the wheels are Sunset Red – more of an orange – which is their original color.  This Jeep towed planes and helicopters, plowed snow, and was a mobile airplane mechanics toolbox at the Akron – Canton airport.  In recognition of that, I left the big channel front bumper and the custom “towing tab” on the bumper.  I also instructed the body man to leave the dents in the bed – I wanted some of the patina ( I now wish I’d just had him fix the dents, I think)….”

This GPW is for sale by Matt at Edmund Angelus Automotive (view some of his work here).  Matt has done some fabulous flattie rebuilds.

“Item up!  A  ’44 Gpw. This is an ALL NUMBERS MATCHING unit!!! This unit also has less than 26-k original miles and under the hood it is very much in tact. If you are a PUREST, or not,k and looking for a GPW to restore, it does not get much better than this. Believe it or not, i am having a bit of separation anxiety about selling this one. This one is my baby, the one i spent Two Years trying to buy from the previous owner. You Know the type, Hords of Jeep parts, yet you have to approach them with a Lunar Lunatic Shemelment on Just so you appear to be from their same dimension. The only problem is returning to the real world with the part or said jeep. The motor does run! It will move under its own power. The cons are as follows….”

1946_cj2a_canoncityUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,000

This is certainly a beautiful CJ-2A.  However, it’s not fully restored to original condition.  One of the obvious issues is the CJ-3A windshield it sports.

“Fully restored to original except for 12 Volt vice original 6 Volt system. $10,000 OBO. The Willys CJ2A was the first mass-produced Jeep intended for the civilian market, began production on July 17, 1945. Civilian Jeeps evolved from the model MB of World War Two fame.”

Last Ride: 194? MB/GPW Mailbox — Secaucas, NJ

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), Last Ride, MB • TAGS: .

1943_mb_secaucus2UPDATE:  I suspect this jeep is on it’s last ride. It’s now a mailbox.

A reader submitted this unusual find.  Yes, the seller of this old jeep somehow used it as a mailbox (I think the mailbox is on the back of the jeep), though technically I’d argue the jeep is more of a mailbox pole. While I firmly believe that the jeep has earned the reputation as one of the most modified vehicles in history, the use of a jeep as a mailbox pole is particularly rare.

“Willys jeep. Military, of about 1944. No engine, no trans, no papers, but lots of rust. For a long time I used this old jeep as a mail box; if you buy it, I won’t be getting bills anymore. For $400., you can be sure that your bills will find their way to your door.”
