• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Wood bodies

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/26/2015) Here’s something unusual. Runs and drives, but not street legal at the moment.

“Here is a cool one- 1948 Jeep CJ2A for sale. I bought this last year from a guy who
started to restore it mostly engine work then quit. I took it a few steps further just for
some fun to do work. Following are where it is condition wise:
motor starts and runs really good. no smoke. Oil pressure is20lbs idle up to 40lbs higher rpm.
12 volt system. 100 amp alternator installed. new point/condenser. Timing/dwell checked.
Radiator flushed/new anti-freeze. Runs a nice 170 degrees.
All new wheel cylinders and brake lines. New master cylinder. New fuel pump.
new gas tank. Old tires replaced with good used ones. Brakes work good.
2 wheel/4 wheel drive. Transfer case in/out shifter. Wiring harness is all there and
decent shape. Just needs to be chased out to make sure all wires are complete with
good connections. Lights and turn signal no work yet. gages all work.
Now for the body—- she was plenty rusty. Had previous body work done.
Wasn’t interested in the time and cost of new body, so I painted it ( paint/reducer/hardner)
like in the body shops, then bolted on 3/4 in plywood panels as you see in pics.
Packer green and gold. Cool woody jeep.
This is what you need if looking for a 4 wheeler on the farm, your property up north,
or your back yard. Get the lights working and license it for street use.”

    That is not a good look. I’d rather have the diamond plate and that took a lot to say

    I hear you, Chris… that wood will trap water against the metal in ways diamond plate couldn’t even dream of.
    I look at this and hear that country song, “In John Deere Green”, playing in my head.
    …although this is probably the work of a Green Bay Packer’s fan.

    LOL… I just bought a derelict that had the same skin, although mine had the top of the cowl done too. And here I though I had a one of a kind bubba original.
