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

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

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).

CJ-5 Koenig Model 555 Half-top Colfax, WI $500

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts • TAGS: .

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”

UPDATE: I’ve been asked if this is a Worman MFG cab ,from my understanding wormans were the first aluminum Willys Factory contracted. Please click link below for explanation on this cab

Like most steel aftermarket hard tops, the Willys halfcab was much too heavy to casually remove and re-install, so many of these impressive half cabs have been scrapped, making this a rare and very desirable hard top.

1946 CJ-2A Tualatin, OR $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

The price seems good on this parts jeep whose body is plenty rusted. The hardtop has be confused. I think it may be a Koenig hardtop with customized “suicide” doors, but the windshield isn’t something I recognize. It may be this windshield allowed the use of a CJ-5 style hardtop.

The windshield doesn’t look like the DJ-3A windshield (shown here) nor does it look like the early Worman windshield (shown here). Anyone recognize it? It certainly looks production quality. I might have seen something similar on a jeep on Facebook, but I can no longer find that post.

1960? DJ-5? Victoria, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: , .

This rear-wheel-drive build is interesting. It’s listed as a 1960 DJ-5 but those weren’t built until 1966 (it also lacks the faux battery box lid of a 1960 body). The fenders are later than 1960, too. The half top is one of the nicer ones I’ve seen, but I don’t recognize the model. The engine sounds like it would work well. The work n the jeep looks well done.
