Builds: Chad’s Ford Model A Roadster PU Willys

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-2A, CJ-3A, Features, Unusual, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

Here’s a wonderful build, an experiment by a reader named Chad.  He wanted to know what a Ford Model A Roadster would look like if Willys built it. So, naturally, he built one himself!

He writes, “Did all of it myself except the upholstery, in my home garage. It’s got a flathead V8 for power and took between 6 and 8 years start to finish. The dDrivetrain is flathead V8 adapted to a C-4 automatic adapted to Dana 18. Front axle is Dana 27 w/Corvette discs….rear is Dana 44 with one piece axles and Lock-rite geared 4.27.  I thought maybe it would be a four year job, but stuff happens  and there was a whole lot of headscratching to make things look ‘somewhat factory’. I used as many factory parts as I could but not necessarily the way they were used ‘by the factory’…..(those are Jeepster tailights, but they aren’t mounted that way on a Jeepster, just as an example).”

Great work and thanks for sharing!

1948 CJ-2A Double Ender

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unique Jeeps • TAGS: .

1948_cj2a_stockton_whichwayUPDATE:  I thought this was unusual (and was for sale on ebay in May 2009), but a couple days ago I  ran across a post at the Hemmings Blog which had a bunch of these type of vehicles.  You can see a few below.

“(from the ad on ebay) Here is a one of a kind parade Jeep.  It was finished October 2007 and was shown at the 2008 Fall Willys Reunion in Jefferson City, MO.  No restorable Jeep body parts were used in its construction. Mechanically it is in very good condition.  It is controlled from the red end only.  The engine starts and runs good, transmission and transfer case work good.  It has standard Jeep 4-wheel drive.  The brakes were rebuilt.  The gas tank is from a Willys pickup.  It has a new wiring harness, new gauges, including fuel gauge and fuel sending unit.  It has a new alternator, fuel pump and rebuilt starter.  It comes with a vinal cover for transport.  All lights work including rear head lights and will pass Missouri State inspection.  It has a clear Missouri title. ”

CJ-2A Project Colorado Springs, Co $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  Still Available. Seller is moving soon; so needs to sell.

The body and frame are $600.  Other parts are more.  Apparently, the seller has been getting his Ad flagged.

“I have a 1946 CJ2A body that sits on a a ’76 CJ5 frame, and is ready to be a serious crawler. It has had a ton of work, and was all done properly. This is not some hack job welded together with a tiny little 110v welder. I would like to get $600 for the body and frame alone, but am taking offers. It is sitting in my back yard and I hate to see it get all rusted and end up going to the scrap yard. I have a ford HP dana 60, and a CO14 that could also go with it, but they of course will be much more. If you are interested in seeing it email me. I know the pix aren’t great, but there better then none. I simply have to many projects and this one has to go”

1946 CJ-2A Sahaurita, Az $2700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

It’s hard to tell much from the pic.

“1946 Willys CJ-2A. Original drivetrain with flathead four cylinder engine. Clear AZ title, not registered. Body has some rust but it has mostly been repaired (needs paint).
Comes with towbar, removeable shade (golf cart top that clamps to the roll bar), and service manual.
Many upgraded and/or new parts within last several years (the Jeep has rarely been used during this time):

– Transmission (three speed) and transfer case rebuilt
– Steering box rebuilt with all new parts, one-piece tie rod conversion, new steering wheel
– Brand new gear-reduction starter
– 12V electrical system with GM alternator, headlights work
– Flush-mount taillights installed but not hooked up
– Carburetor rebuilt, adjustable fuel pressure regulator
– 7.00-15 tires (much easier to find then original 6.00-16)
– Rebuilt master cylinder, and new wheel cylinders
– Re-lined transmission parking brake and new cable (comes with it but not installed yet)

I have owned it for eleven years and used it for hunting and four-wheeling. It could be made street-legal fairly easily, but with 60 hp, 9″ brakes and 5.38 gears it is much better suited for off-road use.
I am selling it because I no longer use it and have too many vehicles. I will consider offers, and will also consider a trade for a big quad or a smaller RV travel trailer (no cars or trucks,etc). Please respond via craigslist or call Al at 490-1963. I can send several other pictures upon request.”

1946 CJ-2A Canton, Ga **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

“1946 Willys CJ2A – I never have had the time or money to restore this Jeep. This Jeep has an International 4 cylinder engine in it (not original). I had the engine running in 2000, but blew a gasket or something and haven’t done anything to it since then. If you are interested in a restoration project or building a great offroad machine, this would be great for either. Body has minor surface rust and some bad bondo from previous owner. Additionally, new floor pans were installed at some point. Come and take a look. I will try to put up pictures at some point – it currently is serving as a shelf in my garage so not very photo worthy!”

3 Flat Fender Projects Wenatchee, Wa

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

There’s a variety of parts and projects here with prices that vary.

“1st jeep has the most potential and while the picture does not show it, it has a grille and other parts that can be put together to make a good one. It has rear diamond plate for the corners and diamond plate for the sides. It does have a windshield that needs put together. No seats or titles on any of them. It has saginaw front end which is optional I will keep it if you want to dicker. If you plan to install a bigger engine I will keep the engine and transmission and transfer case too. Engine is a L head than turns over by hand but someone got the carb and starter. It has a roll bar of sorts. Price depends on if you want the saginaw and engine. $300 with out all that. $650 with all that.

2nd jeep is a basket case and frames front has cracked totally off. But it has a round cross bar that can be used on the first jeep that some idiot cut off the original and put L iron to fit the saginaw on it. Or you can weld it back together and start a rebuild of a second jeep. it has axles but no power plant or transmission or transfer case. $150 for it.

The third is just a body and hood. It was a rare long body that someone cut down to a CJ3A size. Welds need to be finished on that part. Body could be used on one of the other two if you wanted. Might have another windshield in need of repair for it too. $200 for it.

As I said no titles but they can be gotten. I believe data tags are on one at least. I have extrea transfer cases that may need rebuild for $100. And some other extra parts for those that buy all three of them. Including axles. Have other small parts that I will make deal on if you buy all. I just need parts to finish my 2A. Might consider trading for things I need for the 2A like seats or guns or other old interesting item. Especially jeep PTO’s for the front and back or an overdrive. Or Jeepster parts from 48 and 49. I am keeping the roll cage for the 3A for now. But with the right offer will sell it too. It is one that is done well with sides that fit the contour of the CJ2 and 3A frame. $450. These are projects as you can see. And as I said I have hundreds of various small parts too for sale. And for the right trade or take all I will think about a better deal. Also have a F head that needs gone through. It used to turn over by hand but now doesn’t. has a regular oil filter system on it for spinning oil filters and upgraded carb. Long story. $250. Had it in a flat fender and it ran then.
