Robert’s got his nice looking column shift up for sale.

“I’ll certainly miss it, but it’s time to put my column shift, 1946 CJ2A up for sale.

The body is in great condition. Of course it’s been painted some time during it’s 71 years. There is no visible rust. The floorboards and hat channels are solid. In case you didn’t know, the original willys floors were reinforced with thin metal C channels filled with wood. It was the perfect solution during the war, but the rotting wood quickly rusted the floors. Not this Willys. It’s still solid and original. Spending most of it’s life in California is probably the reason.

The engine was replace by the guy I bought it from. He said it’s a Jasper replacement engine. It’s also been converted to 12v out of a 1960s chrysler. I had the transmission rebuilt, along with all of the supporting parts (clutch, presure plate, throwout bearing, etc..) about 500 miles ago. That wasn’t cheap.

In the years that I’ve owned it, I’ve put less than 2000 miles on the odometer. In that time I’ve replace the following items.
16″NDT tires
Complete reproduction wire harness
Restored Carter carb with glass filter
Reproduction gauges
Fuel level sending unit
Rear seat
I’m sure there’s more I’m forgetting, but you are welcome to look through the folder full of receipts that I’ve kept.

I also have quite a few extra parts. Things like a vacuum wiper motor with line, a head, soft top bows, another transmission and much more.

The problems with it are a stuck horn button, the E brake doesn’t work, the carb needs adjusting (it backfires through the exhaust when you shut it off) and there is play in the steering.

Overall is an excellent, well preserved, CJ2a that I would not be afraid to drive anywhere. Add to that the fact that the column shifts were only produced for the first year and a half of production and you wind up with a very desirable old Jeep.

If you are serious about buying an old Jeep, don’t let this one slip by you. Column shifts in this condition don’t come along very often!”

    Love the cigarette ash tray holder on the instrument panel. My uncle’s 1946 CJ-2A #20315 has the same one, only mounted lower between the park brake handle and the ignition switch.

    When I was 16, I had one of those ash trays in my 51 Chevy pickup. It also had a cover with a little knob that would slide shut.
