“1959 Willys Pickup (NOT WAGON) that runs and drives. It was originally a farm truck in Colorado but has been in Utah as a project truck for the last few years. It has been garaged for the last few years.
It has the original 226 cu in 6-cylinder “Super Hurricane” engine. The odometer shows 14,333 but we’re not certain if it has rolled over 100k miles. Original 3 speed manual transmission, 2 and 4WD (hi and lo) and rare manual front lockers in working condition. New tires all around with the spare in the bed.
The body needs some work. There is rust (mostly on the truck bed) but for it’s age it’s in incredible condition. It’s not a show truck in its current condition but it turns heads every time we drive it. We’ve had a lot of people express interest in using it for weddings and photoshoots.
We purchased it with the intent to restore it but never found the time and want to help it find a new home with someone that can restore it to it’s original beauty.”

Nick’s Garage Works on a 1947 CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Nick takes a look at this mostly stock 1947 CJ-2A. Note the unusual location the steering box mod (it does not appear mounted against the frame rail; rather, it is slid towards the passenger side six or more inches. I could only catch a few glimpses of it, such as time stamp 20:01-20:03 (there might be others). An additional cross member was welded between the bumper and the standard cross member, then a support was welded between the new crossmember and the bumper. It’s to that support that the steering box is attached.

Year? CJ-2L? Chassis Loon Lake, WA Make Offer

UPDATE: Some additional pics added. 

This chassis appears to have front frame horns and may have a CJ-2A transmission crossmember side-frame-mount setup. Given it’s been lengthened and located in the Spokane area, I’d bet this is a lengthened CJ-2A chassis (or CJ-2L as we’ve come to call them).

Tim’s selling this Koenig model 555 half-cab. The doors do not include the window mechanisms. Colfax, Wisconsin is about 60 miles east of Minneapolis, MN. You can contact him by phone at 715 308 3207.

“I recently bought a second halfcab, a Koenig model 555, not realizing that my half-cab does not interchange with it. I have taken the window mechanisms from that cab, but have no use for the rest of it. It weighs almost 300 pounds, and is obviously bulky, even though it is completely disassembled. I can deliver it within reason”
