This hood has Don Prine’s business card within the resin.
“Never used but has garage wear and tear. This was probably made in the 70’s judging be the phone number on business card. Fiberglass jeep hood for WILLYS cj3b, or if you cut it down it’ll fit a cj3a or cj2a.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(02/01/2017) Looks in good shape.
“Up for sale is what I believe to be a model year 1943 Willys MB jeep body. I took it apart about 30 years ago as it was on a GPW Ford frame. It is original and in excellent condition for a 70+ year old, mass produced combat vehicle for the government. These were never made to be like a Porsche and had dents and scratches on delivery. Please note there is a puncture hole above the airfilter mounting bracket at the transition to the cowl. It looks like a small forklift fork hit it, but I don’t know. The rear floor (cargo area) was replaced when I got it.
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $400.
Rob’s got the fiberglass body and parts for sale. Looks like a good price.

(01/29/2017) Looks in good shape.
“I have an old Jeep Willys body for sale, don’t know much about it, it does have rust, figured it would make a cool rat rod like pictured or a great military looking re-build. Even perfect for a kids bed, many possibilities. No title,
Just is what you see in the pics, I have a friend that has a hood and grill that would probably work out depending on what your building. ”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $750.
Looks in great shape. Doesn’t look like it has ever been mounted. It appears to be a lightweight body similar to the racing body I used to have. But, mine worked great for jeeping, too.
“Found this fiberglass replacement body in my uncle’s barn while cleaning it out after he sold the ranch. He said he bought it for a ’43 Willys he was planning to restore (but clearly never did). I don’t know much about these but it seems in good shape – needs a fresh coat of paint, but there are no cracks or breaks that I can see. Body and hood only – no fenders.”
Maybe someone can save this?
“1948 CJ2A Tub, Fair condition but restore-able. ”
I don’t seem these bodies pop up very often.
“I am selling my Jeep CJ8 Tub. It is in fair shape, does NOT come with title. Will need body work as well as replacement of the bed around the roll bar mounts and under tail gate. Floor pans have been patched and top cowl has been removed due to rust and have one is good condition with one small hole to replace with. Driver’s side is solid with a few holes and passenger side seems to have been run into a rock or heavily dented from passenger door back. I am asking $400 OBO. It is an original CJ8 tub, not reproduction. ”
UPDATE: Ted got a hold of this a few years ago. No one seems to know who modified or for what purpose. Now he wants to let it go. If interested, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
He wrote, “I was lucky enough to a be in the right place at the right time and have some interesting items to trade towards purchasing this really unique Willys body. Not really sure on origin or history on this oddball as it came from a buddy of mine who also didnt have much history on it, but I knew it was really cool and thought it would be the ultimate foundation for a great Yard -plow Jeep.
I thought it would be a great Jeep to have all your tools, torches, jacks, etc etc in to minimize walks back to the garage to get something while working on stuff out in the woods or yard. I was going to start with a good rolling and running 2a frame and make it mechanically sound and mount a Plow or Snow Scoop on front with a rear mounted PTO winch hoisting Boom on back of Jeep for a great little Utility Jeep.
Unfortunately my unfinished projects and Jeeps that need attention have got me forced to part with some of my future projects that Im never gonna have time for. This Body is very unique and definitely deserves to be restored and put to use somewhere. I think with a good rolling and running 2a or 3a frame and some work it would be a great Winter project for someone looking for a cool Willys build. My loss is going to be someones gain.
Make me an offer !!! Email any questions and I will try to help”
Plenty of jeeps in the background.
