UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The body weaves and bobs a little bit and there’s plenty of minor welds on the inside of the fenders and hood, but otherwise this looks solid.  It’s missing the driver’s side spare tire holder.

“For sale is my unique “lefty” 1948 Willy’s CJ2A.  It has been a great CJ, but it is time for someone else to enjoy it and time for me to move onto another project.  Brief history of what I know for sure.  My Dad found it in a field in Wyoming and wanted to convert it to a hunting vehicle, but I talked him into restoring it. When he took possession, it was in pretty rough shape, so he did a frame off “garage” restoration in 1999-2000.  I would estimate it to be about an 80% restoration.  There are a few blemishes here and there, but overall the vehicle is in great shape.  I requested not to have a complete restoration because I wanted to use it for what it was meant to be used for, fun!  He re-welded the entire frame, rebuilt the original flat head engine, rebuilt the drivetrain, converted it over to a 12V electrical system, re-wired the entire vehicle, repainted it, reupholstered the two front seats, repositioned the spare tire carrier (added a rear tire/jerry can carrier- no jerry cans, sorry!), added a new Bestop Tiger Top with doors and just about everything else you would do in a restoration.  I took possession of it in 2000 and used it as a daily driver for about a year.  Since then I have only used it every now and again just for fun and to keep everything lubricated.  Have used it maybe a half dozen times in light off-roading situations in the past 5 years, other than that, just normal street driving.  Since I have owned it, it has always been garaged.  The new non-directionals tires are mounted on the original wheels.  The wheels have been powder coated and I put Firestone non-directionals on all four wheels and the spare about a year ago….”
