This body has had lots of work done to it.


cj2a-sulphur-tx1 cj2a-sulphur-tx2 cj2a-sulphur-tx3

“During a frame off restoration we realized the body we have does not match the frame. The body (tub, fenders, hood, front and rear bumper) is for a ’48 vintage CJ-2A. Fenders and hood are in excellent shape. Hood has a customized box that was installed to accommodate the non-stock (for the body) engine. Tub is in average condition. Body mount channels on the bottom have some wastage and will need to be replaced. The storage bin under the passenger seat is missing. Otherwise, repairs have been made to previous wastage. We need to make room for the new body.
Entire body was on an operational chassis and was driven. As-is, it is functional. Restoration will require attention in the above areas.
I also have the front grill and windshield. Am not sure if I’m going to repurpose those but if not, they will be included with this body.”

Listed as a 1945, this has a mix of CJ and MB parts. The front frame rails have been modified (or replaced).






“I have a 1945 Willy’s jeep. It is good shape for being 74 years old. It still has the flat head in it and cranks right up. The person I got it from said the winch worked but I have not messed with it. 4wd drive works and the low and high range. It does leak some oil in places. It’s a fun and nice jeep. Every time I ride it around people talk to me about it. I am going to move soon which forces the sale otherwise I would keep it. It has been converted to 12volt.”
