“Stored in a garage in the Colorado Mountains since 1982, this jeep was recently pulled out and revived. It shows just 17,557 miles on it. It runs remarkably well, starts easily, and has no visible smoke whatsoever.
It has a new fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel line, and rebuilt the carburetor. It got a major tune up, oil change and a new battery. All of the wheel cylinders were replaced, new brake shoes and a new master cylinder.
The dry climate in Colorado has preserved the body. There is a crack in the RR fender near the spare tire mount that is showing minor rust. The tub and floors are very good, but the floor supports are rusting and need replacing. (Easy to do and not expensive)
The seats and interior are in very good condition.
The tires are dry cracked and need to be replaced. Right windshield is cracked.”

“A 1948 Willy’s CJ2A. Jeep is in very good condition. Shows less than 18 K miles on odometer. This was a classic barn find near Audubon Iowa in 1978, and was purchased by my father and driven home. The motor was smoking badly at that time and it sat indoors in heated storage for many years. In the last few years the 4 cylinder flat head motor has been rebuilt, the 3 speed manual drive line gone thru, the brake,fuel, and cooling systems repaired/replaced.

New windshield glass. New seat cushions on all three seats on original frames. Still wears its faded and scratched “Princeton Black” 1948 paint excepting a few areas that were cleaned up as it was restored to be a turnkey driver. Factory(?) side steps All five original wheels, still in faded 1948 “Sunset Red”- which actually was a pumpkin orange- with a black trim stripe. All five wheels still mounted with military style non directional tires. Continue reading
