1948 CJ-2A-Truck Priest River, ID $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

This may be one of the custom CJ-2A trucks sold out of Spokane (or it is a truck chassis with modified 2A body). This might differ from the “CJ-2Ls”, which had extended bodies to match the longer frames. It would be interesting to compare this frame with the CJ-2L frame. The half-top could be a remodeled Worman full-top.

This press photo was taken in 1946 in Showa as well.

“This is an original press photo. Instead of manufacturing cargo planes for Japanese use, this assembly line is making US Jeeps fit for winter use. Japanese stocks of aluminum, plexiglass, rivets, iron rods and fabric are being fitted to jeep use. Photo measures 9.25 x 7 inches. Photo is dated 2-6-1946.”

“This replica Jeep is 3/4 scale model loosely based on an early 40’s Willy’s Jeep. I built it for a prop for kids to play on at Vacation Bible School. The frame and body are wood construction plenty sturdy for kids (and small adults!) to sit in / play on. Tires are made of styrofoam, plastic lids, and irrigation drain pipe. No, it does not roll; it is stationary, although with a some imagination and skill you could modify it. There are headlights and marker lights in front connected to a 12v battery and switch in the dash.

Would love to keep it, but don’t have the space for it. Could be for a kid’s playroom, or maybe a Jeep dealer could use it for a kid space!”
