Stan spotted this CJ-2A with a Monroe Lift and some attachments. It runs, but needs some work.

1947-cj2a-syracuse-ny3 1947-cj2a-syracuse-ny8 1947-cj2a-syracuse-ny9

“I am listing this 1947 Willys Overland Jeep CJ2A for a friend of mine. This Jeep has been in the same family for approximately 71 years and has never been licensed for the road. It was used exclusively for field maintenance and general farming related duties. Has the very rare and desirable 3-point hitch with rear PTO, along with an aluminum winter cab.

Also comes with extras, some of which include:
: A 6′ Detroit Harvester Cutter Bar ( Model MDL-MM-6, ser. # 241)
: Extension arms for the hydraulic lift
: 8″ Belt pulley
: Extra engine governors
: Chains
: Two extra rims
: Additional windshield
: Universal & Farm Jeep Mechanics Manual

Needs restoration, but in running condition with only superficial light rust on some exterior body panels, where paint has degraded over the years, and at the corner step at the left door. In fact, if you look closely underneath, where it really matters – at the frame, the suspension, the floors, etc. – there is virtually no rust, thanks to a salt-free life on the farm and the occasional metal-preserving hydraulic leak that this Jeep experienced over the years.

Asking $9,200 or R/O”

2021 Willys Rally in Moab Pics

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

Steve Elkins shared these pics he took at this year’s Willys Rally. He and Blaine attended the Rally for the first time. He counted over 40 Willys and a few more modern iron participating in the event, but didn’t have a head count.

He felt the Red Cliffs Lodge was the perfect venue for such large event. He wrote that the beautiful setting on the Colorado River was an oasis in the desert. The facilities were well maintained and the staff was awesome! He plans to “definitely return to this destination in the future”.

Steve noted that just about every Willys was represented, including Flatfenders, Pickups, Stations Wagons, a Parkway, and one FC. Non-Willys included wranglers and one Jeepster Commando. There was mostly modified Jeeps in attendance, but still there were an impressive representation of Jeeps equipped with an original Power Train. Those with beautiful paint jobs aren’t afraid of getting them dirty.
