1946 CJ-2A Medford, OR $12,000


UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,000.

I spoke with Calvin about this Jeep. It underwent a frame up refurb with lots of new parts from Ron Fitzpatrick. The paint job was custom done by a local artist and is clear-coated. He’s only selling it because some back surgeries have made riding in it uncomfortable. Contact him via email at lorrainelg @ (remove spaces around @) or via the phone at 541 772 6089.

“Body off restoration, custom one of a kind airbrushed with pearlescent accents paint job. Everything gone thru engine, transmission, differentials, axles, seals and bearings. Completely stick restoration only only change is 12 volt conversion. Three-year restoration spared no expense.”

Mechanix Illustrated Magazine: Jiving up the Jeep, Articles 1-4

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Steve obtained copies of article #2, so now this list is complete!

Nine years ago there was a post about “Jivin up the Jeep”, which referenced a series of articles in Mechanix Illustrated Magazine. At that time, I could only locate articles #3 and #4. Steve Zamell just shared the earliest of the four with me (Thanks!). And, I found a poor image of article #2 So, below you’ll find information about all four articles.

According to the information on this Modern Mechanic Post, the October and November 1946 issues of Modern Mechanic magazine each included an article titled “Jivin up the Jeep” that shares various modifications. Those articles were a big hit across the US, as readers from all over sent in follow up suggestions and ideas. That led to an additional two articles, one in April of 1947 and one in November of 1947. I’ve shown the pictorial portions of the articles below. There’s additional content on the 1947 links.

From October 1946 Part I – A few Jeep ideas:


From November 1946 Part II – I just bought a cheap issue of this magazine. I’ll update these poor pics found on a current  eBay ad once I receive my copy of the magazine. Looks like this article covers the creation of a custom hardtop:

This is an unusual book. But, the starting price of $279 surprises me.
