Colin’s friend Al & his Willys

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

Colin’s friend Al has got a nice collection of Willys.  Colin forwarded a few pics of Al’s jeeps with some notes. Nice looking vehicles Al!

Colin writes, “I attached a photo of a CJ2A [al toy] that I did for a buddy of mine sitting on the hood of his August-built 1945 CJ2A with column shift, rebuilt with a lot of the leftover MB stuff that Willys used to get the first CJs on the road.

Al also has a 47 2WD wagon, a 49 Willys truck and a 49 Jeepster that is undergoing a repowering with a 55 Chrysler 331 Hemi, 727 trans, Mustang II front suspension and 56 Corvette rear end.  Aside from body work and paint, Al does all the work himself and does an excellent job.  The shot of the wagon with whitewall tires is the same wagon.  Amazing what a set of wide whites will do for a car.”

1947 CJ-2A Burleson, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: *SOLD** Was $4500.

This isn’t quite original, but looks good.

“This first civilian version of the US Army Jeep remains in near original state. I have the original front and back seats. The Willys was stored indoors since 1998. I replaced the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, cleaned the fuel system, rebuilt the carburetor, put in fresh plugs, points, rotor, capacitor and distribution cap. The 6 volt system operated the lights and starts the Willys with ease. The differential lube has been changed as well as fresh oil in the motor. The original style tires are mounted with tubes and hold air, but I’m not sure how road worthy they would be. The picture shows just how original this Willys actually is. It would make a great ranch or hunting Jeep. It comes with tow bar not pictured. Asking $4500 or best offer, but don’t hesitate to make a reasonable offer.”

1946 CJ-2A Cape Girardeau, Mo $10,600


Someone invested some time and money into this rebuild.

“For sale is a 1946 CJ2A that has just been completed from a frame of restoration. EVERYTHING on this jeep was taken apart and made like new again. The axels were completely rebuilt all new bearings and seals. There are new brake shoes and lines running to all the wheels, along with all new wheel cylinders. The frame was sand blasted down to the metal prepped with a anti-rust formula, and painted with several coats of chassis paint. Both the amazing original 4cyl engine and T-90 transmission were completely rebuilt with new bearings, gaskets, seals, rings, spark plugs, wires, distributor, new clutch disc and carrier, and everything professionally checked out Also the Engine was custom fitted with a newer and easier style oil filtration system to keep it running forever. The Jeep has been converted to 12v system and in now running a new single wire alternator, coil, and rebuilt starter. This CJ has also had a steering conversion to power steering. It now runs off a saginaw power steering gearbox, and a new p/s pump. The Steering column has been replaced with a very high end Flaming River tilt steering column setup and walnut Grant steering wheel. The Jeep was further customized, by adding completely custom and one of a kind walnut dash covering, full roll cage, and a custom made front and rear bumper, and has also been fitted with seats from a 2008 Jeep Patriot. The Jeep sits 4 inches higher with a brand new Superlift 4″ suspension lift, having all new Superlift leaf springs and shocks. With the Jeep also comes the four 17″ Black Rock Wheels plus a fifth matching one for a spare, and a 1950’s Military style jerry can for a little extra gas when you need it. The Jeep runs and drives great and has 20 miles on it since its completion the 20th of August 2010. And is great fun driving around with the top down or even on rainy days with its new Best Top Tigertop. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.”
