1948 CJ-2A Cypress, CA $9500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/22/2019) For some reason, the ignition switch was dropped down a few inches. It could use a bumper, some rubber under the windshield, and some hood blocks. Maybe the pics were taken before it was completed?

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ2A. I bought it a couple years ago as a fun toy. It was beautifully restored by the previous owner. It is definitely a great little vehicle and it gets lots of looks, thumbs up and honks (the good kind). I truly just don’t have time to drive it and can use the extra space. It’s time to move it along to someone that will actually have time to enjoy it. Everything is mechanically sound. It starts up right away and runs better than most of my other classic cars. Truly a great car to just get in and drive. I typically ran most of my local errands in it because it’s fun to tool around in and a cake walk to park. Please let me know if you have any questions, I’m definitely not an expert on these but I will help in any way I can. I’m also happy to send any specific pictures you might want. Thanks for looking!

Just paid the registration, good through October 2020
Title in hand and in my name

P.S. I will not respond to low ball offers. I’m in no rush to sell. I’m happy to continue running errands in it =)”

1947 and 1948 Comparison of Ads for the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

Both of these ads from the Sullivan Daily Times, out of Sullivan, Indiana, cover the features of the jeep, but do so in slightly different ways. The March 18, 1947, ad focuses on the job-task utility aspects of the jeep, how consumers can use the jeep. The July 13, 1948, ad is less about what the jeep can do task-wise and more about what it can bring consumers beyond specific tasks, such as great mileage, physical comfort, and convenience. I have not studied other ads to see if this was a general trend in Jeep advertising (in other words, I do not know if this shift directed by Willys-Overland or something Citizen’s Garage did on their own).
