1946 CJ-2A Prineville, OR $15,000

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, CJ-2A, Features

UPDATE: Thanks to Claus and his brilliant memory, we have another example of a Capstan winch on the back of a Raymond Concrete Jeep. In this case, I had posted it back in 2010.  Raymond Concrete was formed in 1897, but went bankrupt in 1989.

Here’s the image:

A seller on eBay recently had one of these rear mounted PTO winches for sale. It, too, was from the Raymond Concrete company.



Originally Posted October 7, 2021: David shared this CJ-2A for sale in Prineville. He asked if I had ever seen a capstan winch mounted on a rear PTO gearbox like this one. I said I hadn’t. Moreover, the special equipment brochure for the capstan only shows it being used on the front (see brochure below). So, does anyone know whether the capstan was marketed for the rear PTO gearbox? Or was this more likely a custom setup?



Anyway, here’s the jeep in Prineville:


“Paint original(faded) No rust, No dents, No body repairs. Good top and doors. Runs and drives good. PTO winch, PTO rear capistan(very rare) Tow bar & hubs. All running gear original and operational.”
