1947 CJ-2A Bozeman, MT $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

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.

“Again with a tear in my eye, I am offering my
1949 CJ3A Jeep that I have owned for 52 years.

This was my second Jeep and my family and I
won the most active family trophy in the Phoenix
Jeep Club for several years.

But that was a long time ago, and all good things
must come to an end.

This vehicle has many modifications mostly of the
wrecking yard variety which is the way we used to do
things back in the day.

So here is my fairly honest appraisal.

The Jeep has the V6 Dauntless engine
from a 1966 CJ5.
The engine has a polished aluminum
Ofenhauser manifold with a vintage
Carter AFB 4 barrel carburetor.

I still have the original 2 barrel manifold
and carburetor somewhere.

No Updates Wed

• CATEGORIES: Features

Mom’s house is under contract, so I need to make one last trip to round up the misc stuff in the garage, along with a bunch of boards. So, I’ll be away from my computer all day Wed and probably some of Thursday. The new folks are excited about the place, so that’s great. And they are even taking mom’s cats, so that’s a plus as well.

Given the above is a boring paragraph, we’ll turn to Blaine and a photo he shared with me that appears to be a Tri-ang pedal jeep out of Australia driven by a young girl.

Rob in NC is Seeking a Few Items

• CATEGORIES: News

Rob is hoping to find the following items for his CJ-2A. The closer to North Carolina the better, but he is willing to ship for the right items. Email him at rob @ humblerootslandscaping.com (remove spaces around the @ before emailing him). If you’d like him p#, comment below and I will email it to you.

  1. A half (or possibly full) cab for a CJ-2A in good shape.
  2. Some 1950s 10 spline hubs. He currently has later model Warn hubs, but hopes to find something earlier to better reflect the age of his CJ-2A. Examples of what he is looking for include Early Dualmatic (lever-type), Early Cutlas, Early Warn, Free-Lock, Kelly, or Husky hubs  are what he is hoping to find.
  3. Finally, he’d love to get a Capstan winch (complete setup), but understands how rare such an item is.
