1949 Willys CJ2AFor sale is a 1940s Willys Jeep. First off, there is no title, and no VIN tags, they were both gone when I got the vehicle years ago. I do not know the year, although it has a "49" painted inside of the hood as you can see in one of the pictures, so for all I know its a 1949.
The Good:The engine. The motor is all original (minus air cleaner), and runs superb. This thing has never given any problems, doesn't smoke, and just runs as good as you could possibly imagine. I will include a link to a video of it running (there is no exhaust on it, that is why its so loud).
The drivetrain is all complete and working, the 3 speed floor shift transmission works, has all the gears, and high/low range and 2x4 and 4x4 all work. I also have an extra transmission and transfer case, extra front 3rd member and springs and various other parts for it that will come with it.
The bad: The body, its in need of some serious attention, it is for the most part all there but rusty and needs refurbished or replaced.The brakes have never worked, years ago I rebuilt all the wheel cylinders and master cylinder but the master cylinder never worked right and I never went and bought a new one.It needs a gas tank.
Overall, this Jeep needs a lot of work, but for a 60-70 year old machine that can be expected and its complete original running and operating drivetrain make it one of the few old 40s Jeeps to still be trucking after all of these years. Everyone who's ever seen this or heard it run wants to buy it. So here is you chance! I have the right to end auction at any time, this vehicle is for sale locally.
