Extended CJ-2A in Spain, but there is a small problem . . .

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Unusual • TAGS: , .

Roberto’s friend Mr. Paco, has run into some bureaucracy trying title his Jeep.  I will let Roberto explain the details.

Let me introduce you the Willys CJ2A jeep owns by my friend mr. Paco, who lives at Valladolid, Spain. The jeep was found years ago at a farm (barn find!!!) and have belonged to an aristocratic dame, if I´m not wrong.

As you could see in the pics, it has a very curious extended body conversion with short hard-top and that´s the reason to ask your help. We would like to know if this kind of conversion could be done at the States as an extra ordered by the customer, or the institution which imported to Spain. Paco wants to get a tittle for his jeep as an historic vehicle and it seems that here, he needs to claim that this kind conversion was made at the factory. I mean, that this characteristic is “historical”. If not, he should modify again it to be a standard CJ2A jeep…Absurd, and illogical, as the guy who has pointed him this doesn´t care about the possibility of a local conversion made at Spain…isn´t would be this “historical” too? Burocracy, absurd and illogical burocracy…

I responded to Roberto writing that while I knew a small outfit in California created CJ-2Ls by expanding the middle of some CJ-2As, I was not aware of any aftermarket group nor any Willys option to have the bodies extended in the rear (despite plenty of examples of jeeps that have been extended in the rear).  Does anyone else know anything different?

Here are some examples of jeeps extended at the back.

    It’s hard to tell from the photos, but it does look much more professional than some of “bubbas” work. I can’t find any reference to it right this minute, but I think there was a company producing a Jeep “truckette” in some advertising from that era.

    It’s probably a different company, but they still make something similar today.
