CJ-2A Marine Engine and Transmission Kingston, MI $950

• CATEGORIES: Engine, Parts

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/23/2020) Here’s a rare pairing. Somewhere I had an advertisement for Willys marine engines in a Florida newspaper from 1946, but I can’t find that ad at the moment.

marine-cj2a-engine-kingston-mi0 marine-cj2a-engine-kingston-mi1 marine-cj2a-engine-kingston-mi2 marine-cj2a-engine-kingston-mi3

“This unit has been in storage for a long time. The pistons are not stuck. Carburetor needs to be freed up and cleaned out. MB 564093 Marine Power Unit. 134 c.i.d.. This is a non running military engine that has been in storage. I see no cracks or breaks in the castings. I separated the engine and gear box so they could be mounted on my engine stands. After removing the oil pan and cylinder head and checking it out, I loosely assembled it just to keep things all together. The generator is a 6 volt, 40 amp. and the starter motor & bendix look good.

The “marine drive” gear box that was mounted on the engine has a multiple disc wet clutch with “knuckle in” engagement and by moving the lever in the other direction knuckles the clutch out, goes into neutral and will begin to apply a band brake as lever movement continues. Box is full of oil and looks good. The universal coupling behind the box is very heavy duty. The engine flywheel is drilled and tapped for a vehicle clutch assembly, but is still yet a clutch virgin. Starter gear shows very, very little wear. I will be happy to open things back up (engine and gear box) with a interested person present.”

1959 Review of the Willys Wagon and Land Rover

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

This three-part article appeared in the August 1959 issue of Car Life magazine. The first two-page article is a general look at both vehicles. Then, there’s a long review of the Willys Wagon followed by a long review of the Land Rover. I got the sense that the reviewer Mr. Jim Whipple was more impressed with the Land Rover than the wagon. You be the judge….

“A 72 year old rust free car that runs great and still holds a lot of its original picket gray paint. Wheels are still original paint woth their pinline under an aging respray. I’ve gradually been rubbing it off to get to the original paint.

Original motor, running strong. Rebuilt brakes and lines, rear end, new shocks, no rust, new exhaust, rebuilt front 4×4 axles, lights, signals and horn all work. Rebuilt carb, reupholstered seats in the original gray Very fun to drive, easy going beach cruiser. Lay the top down or flip the windshield up.

Peppy original 4cyl motor in original condition with one rebuild sometime in the 50’s, according to the metal plate installed on the motor at the time.

Tons of history, tons of originality, and a lot of work to get it running right while looking original.

New tires and innertubes are included as well. These ones hold air and drive but have cracking. I haven’t had time to go get them installed but they’re ready to put on. Same style as those in the photos, just brand new.”
