CJ-2A? w/ Unusual Parkette Body Blue Ridge, GA $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

Given the front clip, this might be a 3B chassis.

The seller is correct about Paul Parker and the body. But, I believe this is the first version of this particular style that I’ve seen. It lacks the side stripe, has fender extensions, has a little different PARKETTE design on the back, has an extra wide lip around the rear, and looks like it has a side step. Very interesting.

“Rare, rare, rare. 48/49 Willys Jeep with Parkette fiberglass body. Believed only a handful made while Paul Parker was back in Georgia. This one is a bit odd as it doesn’t have the “line” above the fender but it does have flared fenders; the Willys nose panel is original equipment. Not sure it’s on the right size frame at the moment but we do have an original Willys bare chassis on the property we can work into the deal.

Engine/trans present. Very cool project. Needs finishing. No title. Bill of sale only. If the ad is up, the Willys is available.”

    What do you think about this Willys? Do the Fiberglass bodies get soft spots when left out in the weather like this one obviously has?

    Daniel,

    I’ve owned a couple different fiberglass flat fender bodies. My experience has been that they are pretty resilient. However, if this has wood embedded in it and there is moisture access, that may change the equation.

    I have been to this particular junk yard, although I have not seen this jeep. Most of what is there has been there for a very long time. Supposedly there’s an FC there somewhere but I’ve yet to see it.

    I think I’ve decided against going to see it. I called the owner and he said that the body is just sitting on top and doesn’t fit the frame at all. Judging by the pictures, it looks like more of a project than I would be willing to take on at this time and I don’t think he would like the offer that I would make.

    Daniel, it sounds like he’s pretty high on that price. I suspect he’ll have to drop it to sell it.
