“This Jeep would be great for the deer lease or pasture riding. That’s what we were using it for. We drove it into the barn 4 years ago to replace the clutch fork and life got busy and we haven’t touched it since. I’m sure it needs a new battery and probably tires. It does need a clutch fork since we never replaced it. It’s been barn kept”

UPDATE: This is the original patent for the Jeep-a-Loader! The application was first filed on February 07, 1955, by the Minneapolis Freeman Mfg, Co. (Out of Minneapolis??). I am guessing that the Jeep-A-Loader Corporation was a subsidiary or offshoot from the above parent company. The drawing shows that the Jeep-A-Loader was designed to fit over a CJ-3B (perhaps a CJ-5 as well), though the only one I’ve seen documented is fitted on a CJ-3A.

The filing date likely means this was manufactured around 1955, plus or minus a year. The patent was granted February 11, 1958.

This photo is from 2009:

From June 2008:  A reader named Ed sent me some pics of a rare find he just purchased:  A front end loader for a jeep from a manufacturer called Jeep-a-Loader.   The serial number is 1001. The hydraulics system is powered by a Hy-lo hydraulic pump, which has been used to power other Willys devices.  You can see an example of a Hy-lo pump here and here.  Here are some pics below.

“The Jeep has never undergone a full restoration, but Willys America in Sonoma County worked on it to improve safety and drivability. Some of the engine and body work include new, replaced, or repaired components, such as wiring harness and cable, leaf springs, shocks, 12V system, fuel tank, clutch, hoses, brakes, fuel tank, and many more components. Receipts available for inspection. The jeep has several dents, scrapes, and rust spots. The windshield wipers do not work. There is no top. It is not a show vehicle, although fun to drive. I garage it in my hometown of Long Beach (Bluff Park), CA. Clear title”

1948 Cj-2A Colorado Springs, CO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

“This old Jeep is a consignment unit, so I do not have a personal feel for the unit. It seems to be in very good condition, overall. It has the flat head 4-cylinder engine, and the owner states that it has a new clutch. The Jeep runs and drives good. The snow blade goes up and down with the winch. Manual angle adjust. The owner set the price, and I think he is pretty firm on it. If a cool old CJ2A is something you can use, this one might fit the bill.”

“It can be used as a recreational or farm/ranch vehicle currently. It would need more work to become street legal. The engine starts and runs nice. It has a new aluminum radiator and never gets close to overheating. I’ve also recently installed new gas tank, lines and fuel pump, along with a new five year battery. The tires have great tread for the mud. All the gauges and lights work, but recently cracked the back light covers, which is a cheep and easy fix. I have a reprint of the original manual and guide book to the complete tear down and rebuild that will come with the vehicle.”
