“Willys was not an option in the listing title. And they made me put mileage in but I really have no idea what the actual mileage is.
This is titled a 1956 CJ2a. I know it’s not a 1956 but probably much earlier. Runs well, it’s pretty clean and very fun. Has a coat of quality paint on it but not a quality paint job haha. I started tracing wires to get the lights and signals to work but ran out of time. If it doesn’t sell in the next few weeks I’ll get back to it and wire it, tune it up and the price will be changed accordingly. Runs and drives right now. $5000 firm.”

Happy Easter 2022

• CATEGORIES: Features

We had a surprise overnight visitor last night. Mitch was driving home from Moab yesterday, but the cold temps and long drive, especially over the Blue mountains, helped decide to camp at our place last night. It was a great surprise! So, no updates on this Sunday morning.

“This black & white film shows the early stages of the Allied forces invasion at Anzio, Italy in 1944. The film lacks credits or other information, but likely dates to 1944. The Battle of Anzio took place from January 22 to June 5, 1944, when Rome was finally captured. The operation was opposed by German forces in the area of Anzio and Nettuno. The landing operation was commanded by U.S. Army Major General John P. Lucas of VI Corps… ”
