The body has a decent amount of rust and a nice patina but the frame is solid. The steering box recently broke preventing it from driving and still needs replacement but the car still runs well. There is a roll cage included as well as a tow bar which have not been installed. Lastly, the front driveshaft needs to be installed before running 4WD. This would make for a great quarantine project!

Included:
– Willys CJ2A
– Roll cage
– Tow bar
– Front driveshaft and extra rear driveshaft
– New battery (not in pics)

1953 Photo and Article from a Jeep Playday

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles, Racing

This photo and article appeared in the July 09, 1973, issue of the Longview Daily News. I don’t remember the Road Rebels Jeep Club nor can I remember its insignia. The tow bar on the front suggests this jeep was likely a trail and race jeep, if not also a road jeep. It was common to see the family jeep show up at races into the early 1980s. It doesn’t take too many breakdowns of the family jeep while racing to convince owners to build race-only jeeps.
Clipping from Longview Daily News - Newspapers.com

“A hearty crowd turned out for the Jeep Play Day put on by the Road Rebels Jeep Club this weekend in conjunction with Kelso’s Hilander Summer Festival. The unidentified driver has all four wheels slinging mud, sand and water during his run over the course. Photographer Dave Fox captured the action with a camera setting of f16 at 500th of a second, which is considerably slower than the speed he used to get out of the way.”

Four CJ-5-oriented Questions

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

Four CJ-5 Questions for you all:

  1. Anyone know when (month/year or vin) that the CJ-5 switched from the side tank to the rear? I’ve seen dates between mid 1970 through early 1972.
  2. Similarly, when was the PTO draw bar dropped (month/year or vin)?
  3. When did the CJ-5 spare tire mount move from the side to the back (month/year or vin)?
  4. When was JEEP changed to Jeep on the side of the CJ-5 cowl (month/year or vin)? (somewhere on eWillys I’ve answered this question, as I remember doing the research, but now I can’t find it!)
