1948 CJ-3A Fair Oaks, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1948_cj2a_fairoaksUPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,000

There’s clearly lots of time and money put into this custom CJ-3A.  If the model (cj-3a) is accurate, it’s one of probably several hundred.  This has some stainless parts.

“Classic Willys, customized with all the extras. Original 1948 body, 225 Odd-fire V6 1965 Buick engine, T18 truck transmission 4 speed 7:1 ratio deep under. Power steering, power locks front and rear. Stainless steel grill and windshield, chrome rockguards, custom Emiron black paint–lots more. Rebuilt “new” in 1983, 9500 miles since and kept garaged when not in use. Over $24,000 of customized extras plus 4 years of labor. A labor of love and it kills me to part with it, but I need the money. No trades. ”

A great plug for Dataplates4U.com

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

Our intrepid Afghan Bureau Chief, Buck, has safely returned from his all-expenses paid stay in Afghanistan, courtesy of the Federal Government.  He’s jumped back into his restoration project and had this positive report to file about his experience with Dataplates4U.com experience.

Buck writes, “I am nearing the end of my jeep restoration and was in need of data plates for the jeep. I had only the original patents plate left because all the others were long lost in the annals of time so replacements were required. I began the research and started talking with Robert at Dataplates4u.com (a small business in the Netherlands).  Luckily the serial number was still readable so I was able to have him stamp the appropriate information onto the plates. Everything is dead-nuts accurate down to the fasteners and the font on the stamping. Take a look, the man does outstanding work and reasonable as well…I paid $156 USD for all four plates, stamping, fasteners, and shipping from Holland. As you can tell there is no way I can be disappointed with the result.

Website: Updated CJ-2A.com

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

A Quick Clarification: This post relates to the CJ-2A.com site and not thecj2apage.com.  Both great sites.  Thanks for reminder Sean!

Sometimes I don’t get out and check out other jeeps sites often enough.  So, I was browsing a bit today and dropped by the CJ-2A.com, which now has a new format.

One of the coolest new tools is the CJ-2A parts list and manual.  The tool allows you to browse through and find lists and manual excerpts.  So, if you don’t have a manual handy, I think you’ll find this really helpful.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_partsSold to an ewillys reader.

This looks like a very good price on fenders, with other parts thrown in too.

“Grill is in excellent shape, hood is good, one fender is excellent, the other needs some work. Needs a repair post welded back on. Those sell on Ebay all the time. The good fender alone is worth the asking price. My son removed most of the three coats of paint from the top of the hood, the front of the grill and the good fender.”
