1948 CJ-2L(?) Anchorage, AK **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

Price dropped to $1500. Might be a good price if the body is solid.

This has a bobcat hood and looks to be extended similar to CJ-2As. It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that this was originally a Washington State jeep.

    351 Windsor, imho; the best old school small block Ford V8 ever. Something going on with the front axle; the shocks are at an angle and the hubs look a little big. 3/4 ton axle maybe? Hard to tell from one pic.

    Dave;
    What’s the story on these extended flatties? Was there some company doing a “factory” modification or are they all custom jobs by individuals?

    Chuck,

    Around the start of eWillys I noticed a cluster of these extended jeeps for sale around the Spokane area. One (or two?) of these had dates plates altered to read CJ-2L. After some research, I came upon a CJ-2A forum post where someone noted that a dealer in Spokane had been altering CJ-2As, lengthening them. So, I’ve done my best to mark these over the years (http://www.ewillys.com/tag/cj-2l/).

    All that said, I’ve never been able to document the dealer involved in this nor any direct evidence other than the jeeps themselves.

    Hey Chuck I’ve seen a few extended CJ2As from California that appeared aftermarket extensions but it was just added on where the rearend would normally be and uses the stock tailgate. These were not bolt on extensions and the frame rails were extended. Might have been a local shop doing it.

    Lol “Super Jeep” getting air loaded with ten soldiers!

    Thanks, Dave and Peter for the info. I kinda like this Jeep, but Alaska? And I don’t think the turning radius on these long wheel base CJ-2L’s with a 25 or 27 Dana front axle would be very good.

    Chuck, on the bright side, Alaska is large enough to accommodate wide turning vehicles 🙂

    Lol! – that’s why it needs to stay in Alaska! But I can’t help but think the potential as a rock crawler this has.
