“SOMEONE CALLED THIS A “REDNECK SPORTS CAR”…ABOUT SUMS IT UP. THIS IS 1948 CJ2A WITH AN EARLY 60’S CORVETTE 283 V8 THAT RUNS WELL. IT DOES HAVE LOUD MUFFLERS ON IT…NOT MY CHOICE BUT THAT’S HOW IT WAS WHEN I BOUGHT IT. THE SEATS ARE NEWER, HOWEVER I WILL THROW IN THE ONES I WAS GOING TO REPLACE THEM WITH BECAUSE I DON’T LIKE RACING SEATS (SEEING HOW THIS ISN’T A RACING JEEP!).

IT HAS A MUNCIE 4 SPEED THAT SHIFTS WELL AND A DRUM-REAR, DISC-FRONT SET UP. THE DISCS ARE NEWER FROM KAISER WILLYS AND THE RIMS ARE NEW REPOPS WITH DECENT TREAD ON THE SCHWAB TIRES. THE PREVIOUS OWNER DID A RE-WIRE WITH A “PAINLESS” JEEP SYSTEM THAT WAS FOR A NEW JEEP AND HASN’T BEEN PAINLESS. I HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY THINGS WORKING BUT THERE IS A LOT OF CIRCUITS LEFT IN CASE YOU’RE INTO STEREOS, LIGHTS ETC. IT HAS A NEW BATTERY BUT AFTER 3-4 DAYS IT DRAWS DOWN. I DON’T DO ELECTRIC STUFF SO GUESSING AN ALTERNATOR…BUT IT COULD BE SOMETHING REAL SIMPLE BASED ON WHAT I’VE SAID ALREADY ABOUT THE WIRING HARNESS. ALL THE GUAGES SEEM TO WORK EXCEPT THE GAS…HAVEN’T LOOKED INTO IT, AND MAYBE THAT’S SIMPLE TOO.

THE BACK SEAT IS A TOOL BOX SO YOU CAN RIDE 4 AND STILL HAUL THE NECESSARIES. I CAN ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS. I’VE OWNED IT SINCE LAST FALL, WORKED ON IT THROUGH THE WINTER AND GOT IT GOING ABOUT THE TIME COVED STARTED…SO IT HASN’T BEEN REGISTERED. IF I HANG ON TO IT MUCH LONGER I WILL BUT I’M NOT DRIVING IT EXCEPT TO KEEP IT WARMED UP AND RUNNING AROUND A MILE OR TWO OUT IN THE COUNTRY. IT’S MORE OF A PROJECT THAN I CAN DEVOTE TO, SO PERHAPS THIS IS YOUR HOBBY. THE SHIFT KNOB WILL BE THE METAL ONE NOT THE ANTLER AND I’M KEEPING THE HI-LIFT JACK AND CONTENTS OF THE TOOL BOX. OTHER THAN THAT, WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET.”
