1942? MB? Yuba City, CA $27,000

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

This jeep has a few interesting mods. For example, a small modded-item holds the radiator in place using the holes from the grille’s footman loop. Or, I can’t remember seeing a power brake setup with a clutch master cylinder mounted to the unit like this one (is that custom, aftermarket, or out of something?). Some videos on this page: https://www.clasiq.com/auction/1942-jeep-willys/

“Obtained from a substantial collector out of the Fresno, CA area back in 2017. Odometer is a custom VDO and reads 05588, representing the miles placed on her since the complete reconstruction.

She has a clear and clean CA title in our Owner’s name.

New steel tub creates a CJ2 style Jeep atop a 1942 frame. Complete frame off was performed during it’s restoration and modification. Chrome accessories detail the body with plated hinges, latches, light rings and custom fit bumpers. Frame is reported as fully powder-coated. Soft-top canvas covers the interior and is reported to be in good shape, just not a perfectly tight fit. We finish with bead-lock styled one-piece aluminum rims and Wild Country off-road radials.

1947 CJ-2A Bozeman, MT $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Along with some rust, this CJ-2A has all kinds of mods. I’ve unaware of any factor “cowl cover”; that said, the place I’ve seen these cowl extensions most often is in the northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana areas, so maybe there was a dealer(s) in those areas offering custom cowl creations? The hardtop looks to be an aftermarket Koenig half cab.
