1947 Jeep Caravan’s Coming to Town

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This July 08, 1947, article from the Sullivan Daily Times announced the upcoming arrival of the Jeep Caravan to the town of Sullivan, Indiana. It was one of four Jeep Caravans traveling the United State at the time.

The caravan consisted of eight jeeps. One was the CJ-2A fire jeep. Four other CJ-2As sported attachments, including an arc welder, a generator, a compressor, and a line of hydraulic lift implements. Based on the pic below, it looks like 2 wagons and a truck, brand new to the line-up in the summer of 1947, rounded out the caravan.

“Upon the arrival of World War II the U.S. military needed a vehicle that could withstand anything and drive through anything. Ford, Willys and Bantam all submitted prototypes to the government, but the Willys MB was far superior both in durability and mechanical strength with its 60 horsepower flathead 4 cylinder that far exceeded the U.S. governments requirements. The do anything, go anywhere vehicle named the “Jeep” proved to be exactly what it was made for and more. After the war, Willys saw a need and a market for durable utilitarian vehicles for all the G.I.’s returning from the war so in 1946 they introduced the civilian model of their famous MB that helped win the war: the CJ-2A.

Offered here is a very solid example of a 1947 Willys CJ-2A. Finished in its original color of dark green, this 2A wears an older restoration but is a great Jeep to drive around town or for show. It comes with its original 2A split windshield and original Willys tailgate. The windshield currently installed is a CJ3A windshield for better visibility while driving. Mechanically it runs and drives very well and would be great for top down or even windshield down driving. No signs of rust or rust repair, the tub is original to this Jeep which is seldom seen today. A great Jeep and a lot of fun.”

“This is an amazing example of a “REAL” 1946 CJ2A Willy’s Jeep. 1946 was the first production year for the civilian jeep. So this is a real piece of American history. The paint is perfect, all the seats have been recovered with new canvas and foam. new period correct tires with original wheels. The engine is a 1942 Studebaker Flathead six. I almost put the 4 back in, but this history of this motor is much better. I wish I could find out who swapped it and when, but it had to of been done in the 50’s-60’s. Also, it has much more HP and torque. This little Jeep drives awesome.”
