• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000.

(11/12/2020) This jeep has undergone some modifications. The body has been cut in places and patched in others. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this jeep is the hood (aftermarket?), which is mounted at an angle with the back up high, presumably to fit the Chevy 350.

I am selling a very nice 1946 Jeep Willys-Overland CJ-2A, twin stick 4×4, manual, 3 speed. It has had a frame-off restoration. No rust on the cab. VERY STURDY, no rusted through portions. Nice, thick paint. The paint is pretty good overall, but has scratches and imperfections. The has been swapped for a Chevy 350 with true dual exhaust with cherry bombs (Sounds good, not obnoxiously loud). It starts easily, runs great, has tons of power, and drives well both offroad and street. The transmission was pulled from a CJ-2A 6 cylinder, and the remaining drive train and axles are all original to the vehicle. The passenger seat flips up. The windshield folds down. The lights work.

“Check out this sweet 1951 cj3a. She has a very solid body. Bubba cut a 2 holes in the rear. I’m guessing to use so kind of equipment. Mobile welder or something off a PTO. She was a work jeep for sure. But looks to be taken care off. Other then the hood the body has this cool German desert camo kind of patina too it and check out the vintage mascot painted one it. It says “go devil powered” pretty Rad!! Also on the tail gate you can still make out the willys four wheel drive. I have a windshield frame gas tank and radiator for it. As is. has a tile and non op reg. But she has her spot in line to be fixed up and it won’t take much to get her going and street worthy again!!”

Meyer Snow Plow & ElectroLift Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The Meyer Snow Plow brochure includes a large section about the ElectroLift. Labeled form no. 3-163, the brochure is a standard paper side with a half-paper-sized section that folds out horizontally to reveal more details about the Electrolift. There is not date on this brochure, but I’d guess early 1960s.

2 Meyer Snow Plow Brochures

These two two-page brochures from Meyer once again highlight the company’s snow plows.

This first brochure showcases the Meyer Angle Dozer and is dated July of 1962 and is form no. 3-114 (though on the backside it shows 3-114 R2, suggesting the backside may have been a 1st or 2nd revision):

meyer-sp-form-3-114-1-lores meyer-sp-form-3-114-2-lores

This second one is an undated form no. 3-283, but given it includes a Jeepster Commando, it is likely from the late 1960s.:

This Jeep came from an elderly gentleman up in Montana and it was a hunting Jeep that was used by him on his ranch in Montana. This jeep was used for hunting Deer and coyotes on a regular basis.

Jeep Was sitting when we found it and it was stored inside of a tractor shed. We loaded this jeep up in the middle of a blizzard after driving 2 hours down a gravel road and then made the long trek home with her. We flushed out the fuel system, added new fuel lines, Coolant, and a fresh battery. We also did some adjustments to the timing and the points as well as the electrical under the dash to get it working. The jeep starts really great and the throttle and choke work as intended.
