“FOR SALE. 1947 Willys Overland, CJ-2A, JEEP
Previous owners have made substantial investments in the restoration of this Jeep. The engine has been rebuilt and starts and runs like new. Compression is 125 PSI in each cylinder. Oil pressure in 40 PSI. Vacuum is 20”/Hg. Brakes have new cylinders and lines. Drums and shoes are in VG condition. Exhaust system is like new with surface rust. New parts include fuel pump and tank, oil bath air cleaner, etc.

At some point in time this vehicle found itself too close to a fire, resulting in blistered paint on the right front and side of the body and two melted plastic parking light lenses. The right front tire is blistered and charred and would be unsafe to use. The other 3 tires are truely like new. Glass cracked. The grill, front fenders and windshield frame are in remarkably nice, rust free condition. The tub, though it looks generally decent, and is quite serviceable, shows rust damage that has been “repaired” (covered up) in a substandard manner. The electrical wiring is new from the battery to the ignition system. The lighting wiring has been disconnected at the switch since some original wires are worn and frayed. Upholstery is, well, take a look at the pictures. Rear seat in good.

Examination of the drive train internals shows little ware. See transmission photo.

If you want a project Jeep where the big stuff is done, take a look at this one. Great potential. Your effort will add value to this classic.

This 72 year old vehicle is being sold as-is, where-is. Clear CA title”

    It’s always surprising to me when I see a jeep without hubs. I guess they didn’t feel the need for them? Maybe it was exclusively a farm jeep?

    My jeep, which had a 1982 state inspection sticker on it, didn’t have them when I got it. Maybe the previous owner wasn’t familiar with locking hubs, or didn’t want to spend the money to buy them.
