1948 Willys CJ2A

Willys CJ2A (1948)
for sale

Price: US $9,500.00


Hello Willys Fans, I'm selling my Jeep projects. My wife and I bought land in an adjoining state, and well, now I need to buy a piece of heavy equipment. I'm selling it all together. I don't have time to do separate Ads on each, so DON'T ASK TO BUY SOMETHING BY ITSELF!I was working towards building solid, reliable his and her jeeps for us to use on back-country trails, but as all of you know, plans can change. I have a low reserve and all goes for one price - 2 CJ2A's, CJ6 frame, MB body parts and extra misc. parts. I will try to describe each as best that I can.(1) 1948 Willys CJ2A (Red One)I have a clear title on this one. It has a newly rebuilt 4-134 L Head motor, new battery, five new 215/85R-16 Cooper DiscovererSTT tires mounted on stock rims, new wiring and some new dash gauges, all new suspension and shacles, new sunbrella upholstered seats with new foam, rebuilt steering gear box, new steering wheel and shaft, converted to 12 volt. It's converted to propane and starts and runs beautifully. It has a new ten gallon forklift bottle in the bed, (have not built mounts for it yet as I hadn't decided on putting it to the front or back yet, there's actually room for two in the bed if you want to extend your range) but if you want to go back to gas, it's very easy to take off the propane system, the original carburetor and gas tank are all still there.Sometime during this jeeps life, someone cut holes in the rear sheet metal for tail lights, I put temporary patches over them but probably an easy fix for a sheet metal guy. I was putting it together for trail use and having fun in, but if all original and show is where you want to proceed, then let'er buck!The body is very free of rust, floorboards and tool box look very good, although I have seen a little body filler on the driver's side above the fuel filler neck. Runs good and smooth down the road. Brakes good also, someone put on a receiver hitch. I was going to remove it, put on a new rear bumper and original type hitch assembly.(2) 1946 Willys CJ2A (Grey One)I DON'T have a title for this one, will provide a bill of sale.This jeep was owned by a nearby ranch. The 2A body is actually sitting on a 3A frame, which is a much stronger frame to use off-road, also a Dana 44 rear end instead of a Dana 41. The rear end has been all rebuilt, as a member of the ranch family stuck the jeep in a creek and water got into the diff. and was left that way up until I got it.It has five brand new 7.00-16 Firestone Military NDT tires, all new springs and shackles, rebuilt steering gearbox, new steering wheel and shaft. This one was already converted to 12 volt and which also appears to have all new wiring and some new gauges. This jeep starts and runs, but it has been a while since I started it. I had planned to put this one on propane also but hadn't gotten to it. It needs new brake lines for the rear, probably a new master cylinder, a carburetor rebuild and cleaning out gas tank and fuel lines, and last but not least, a battery to get it on the road. This one had the MB grill in it when I got it, don't know if the '46 CJ2A's were using up surplus war grills or not. The floor boards have some rust roles but the outside body is very good all over on this one.(3) Willys CJ-6 frameI believe this frame to be a 1957 or close, which is the earlier 101 wheelbase. The frame appears to be in good shape with just surface rust. It could use a new rear bumper and battery tray but very useable for a CJ-6 restoration project. Comes with the springs the were taken off of it. Also have the rear hitch, steering gearbox, bellcrank, drag link and tierod assembly from this frame, listed in miscellaneous parts. (4) MB Hood, 2 fenders and grillThese are all in decent shape and absolutely useable for a restoration. Fenders appear to have a little body filler on the tops.(5) Extra Miscellaneous Parts*CJ2A windshield frame (planned on using this on the grey 2A)*4 Willys rims (one is 16x4.5, the other three are the heavier ones that I believe were used on the pick-up and wagon)*2 partially disassembled transfer cases, 2 spd. Dana 18's*Right and left curved body protectors for rear corners (very heavy duty)*Rear hitch assembly which came off CJ6 frame*Steering gearbox off CJ6 frame*Bellcrank, drag link and tierod assembly off CJ6 frame*2 extra driveshafts*Extra 2A drivers seatand other miscellaneous pieces.
