Hugh’s New CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

Hugh spotted this on eWillys and went to look at it. He was pleasantly surprised to discover it was better than it looked in the pictures, so he bought it.

He writes, “This is the 47 cj2a i picked up in niangua missouri.  The thing runs like a sewing machine.  The previous owner and his brother meticulously maintained the drive train.   The shock absorbers are shot, the springs are flat and it needs new tires.  I put more than fifty miles on it today  and it seems very dependable.  Its very original but not a show piece, but heck,  i just like to drive em,  preferably off road!”
