“46 CJ2A runs drives and stops. I have the original gauges in a box. She needs a new tub and body package. A rewire once you have the tub off. I’m trying to not loose too much money. My mechanic retired and I don’t have the tools to finish her. More pictures available upon request. She’s been parked in the barn for a while I’ll have to drive her out to get better pictures. Not selling because I need money just want someone to finish her.”

“Back on the “Interwebs” due to Craigslist Flakes! Up for sale “Farm Fresh” Willys CJ2A “Flat Fender” Jeep. This is a very early, rust free, jeep. This is the first civilian production run of the famous CJ Jeep. The Jeep is a very low production number. The Jeep has a Buick V6 Dauntless motor (runs), dual exhaust, dual fuel tanks, headers, neat spare tire carrier, Dualmatic front hubs, Chevy tilt steering wheel. Jeep sold with a T90 transmission, but does not have a transfer case. The transmission and transfer case was pulled by the previous owner. This wouldn’t take much to get back on the trail. I have the original title and every repair receipt that was ever done to this jeep. This rig would be great for a full restoration, a vintage rock crawler, hunting rig, trail jeep, or summer grocery getter.”
