I can’t imagine that Willys was fielding enough Land Rover questions that the sales department thought it needed to highlight the Jeep’s advantages over it?

It’s listed as a 1947 CJ-2A, but it looks to be a 3A.This half top is a curious one. It looks like it’s been built out of galvanized metal? If so I suspect it’s a home made one, perhaps modeled after a Porter & Reed top?

“Pulled this out of a Quonset a couple months ago, it’s a cool little Willys Jeep but I already have a CJ2A and this is one project too many.

Hasn’t run for about 4 years, I asked the guy how long he’d had it he said, “I put those 1973 plates on it. ”

We have not tried to start it, the oil looks good and it has antifreeze in it, the gas line is disconnected at the fuel pump, they had a little can on it last time it ran. The engine has pretty good looking red paint so I asked him about that. He said they had it rebuild a “Long time ago.”

Feb. – Mar. 1958 Willys Salespower

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I do think it’s odd that while the brand ‘Jeep’ dominates much of the consumer facing literature by 1958, the marketing department still uses the ‘Willys’ term. Of course, the company’s name is Willys Motors, but that’s pretty much a legacy name by this time (at least in retrospect).
