(02/05/2022) This appears to be a 2A body with a Willys stamped rear body part grafted on to the back. Yet, it is missing a few 2A features in the dash and lacks a steering column hole. I’m scratching my head over this odd body.

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.
