    Very Nice.A little time with a hammer and dolly and some paint and this thing would be perfect!

    nice jeep. thought since it is so early they might have carried seats over like some other parts from 2a to 3a.

    Guess I better wait on switching the seat frames. It does have a lot of early dated parts. The brake drums are the earliest so far with a 10-7 casting date. The axles have a 11-48 date and the windshield is dated 12-48.

    One of the major redesign features of the cj3a body was shorter wheel-houses to fit new and better seats , so why would Willys install a pair of wrong seats ? I think someone else did that .
