Picking this gem up tomorrow, 1947 CJ2A - a project for sure. Love the patina - keeping body as is. Making it road & trail worthy. Have been looking for an Willys MB or CJ for 35 years, found this one on the way home from vacation & bought it. Can't wait to get started!

 Welcome. Nice looking Jeep. It appears to be a 46 to my untrained eye. And what took you so darn long (35 years) to find one?  Were you on the space station for that long? £ Can't toss a rock around here without hitting one. All kidding aside, good luck with your project and keep us posted. Where are you located ?
Oh, and we like lots of pictures.

...Well I picked up the '47 yesterday, 9 hour round trip (including loadup & stop for dinner).
Fit like a glove on a 10 x 6' trailer, wish I would have gotten a dual axle one, but it towed nicely.

Has a beat up 1947 Oregon license plate on the front only, I picked up a decent pair of 47 plates off of
 Ebay that I plan on registering it with.

First thing to do is pull all of the wheels & take them down to the tire shop & get them fixed up so they all hold air so I can roll it around. 
 Title transfer might be dicey - the people I bought it from purchased it from a couple in Idaho in 1983 to use on their ranch. They never did an official title transfer or licensed it for street use. I have the signed off Idaho title & a bill of sale from that transaction, & of course a bill of sale from when I purchased it.
  Due to the old 1947 Oregon plate on it, I'm guessing that the Idaho owner bought it from someone in Oregon & they too never licensed it for street use. Title has no plate # on it.

Nice! Welcome to the page. Based on the first photo, it looks like the jeep came from east of the Cascades. Get it working and bring it to Mike in Oregon’s Spring Fling.

Forgive me if I don't return the "jeep wave", I need both hands on the wheel!

As long as the title has the matching serial number from the jeep
Just take the title in and have put in your name, since it’s an out of state title they will require a Vin inspection on site at the DMV, or you can have a state trooper come to your house and verify the serial number. 
 If it was me I would not worry about the other bills of sales or any of the paperwork you got from the other owner, the more paperwork there is the more confused the DMV or complicated they will make it, just take the title in as long as it’s signed and match’s the jeep and have a put in your name. Big smile
 That’s awesome you’re gonna register with the 47 plates. 
I have Oregon 48 plates on my one of my 2a’s.

After much screwing around with the trailer hitch height, I was able to get it backed into my semi steep driveway entry & unload the beast. Installed the half cab just to see what it looked like, would have put the doors on, but it looks like I am missing some hinge brackets.
