Along with some rust, this CJ-2A has all kinds of mods. I’ve unaware of any factor “cowl cover”; that said, the place I’ve seen these cowl extensions most often is in the northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana areas, so maybe there was a dealer(s) in those areas offering custom cowl creations? The hardtop looks to be an aftermarket Koenig half cab.

“47 Willys ran has 6v system needs new batteries. Has very rare factory cab and cowl cover. Rear pto winch. Great project.”

    Pretty cool. Like all the making use of every square inch. Looks the half round diamond plate in the rear is a cover for the winch. If it had a little less rot and 500 miles closer I’d check it out.

    I guess the heater being installed that high up on the dash would also act as a defroster on the windshield.

    Dave, I agree with you on the cowl cover, this is a least the fourth one I have seen from that area, all very similar. Check out the custom bent transfer case levers, evidently for clearance for something,

    Mark: I couldn’t decide if they were bent for a utility reason or because someone thought that looked cooler. Perhaps someone planned to put something on or under the dash, so they bent the levers to keep them out of the way? Either way, I someone had some fun customizing this rig.

    Steve: I hadn’t thought of the heater up high to act as a defroster, but that seems plausible.

    Dave: I hope someone can bring this one back to life. It’s a neat one.

    The flathead 6 cylinder engine appears to be a Studebaker Champion 80hp. Those fit easily into a Jeep. The entire Jeeps looks to be modified for hunting use.

    Colin, Thanks for that informative answer, it triggered a memory from way back when. Time frame 1960’s Passaic, NJ, A Chevron gas station on Main Ave had a early 50’s Studebaker V/8 engine, installed in a 50’s Willys Jeep pickup. At the time, I was told that these Studebaker V/8’s bolted right up to the Willys transmission, would you know if this is true?

    I believe it was,as stude used many of same transmissions as jeep. T90 t86. Maybe had to change input shaft?
