“1945 Willy’s WWII MB,.I am tired of hearing it is not all original, when I specifically stated the roof was fabricated by my father, and electric wipers added. Yes it does have all the data plates, yes frame is 100% solid, yes the floor pans are a hundred percent solid, all of the flaking visible in pictures, is the original WWII paint, yes I can vouch for that, I was the one that purchased the paint back in 1988. Please, read description. If 10,000 Dollars Is Way out of your budget, then I don’t know what to say, purchase one for 25 thousand. This is another true barn find. My Grandfather purchased this right out of World War II, yes with title, where it has spent its entire life in New York.no work has been done to the engine, transmission, or rears, yes I can vouch for that because it has been in the family for three generations.

Everything on this Jeep is original EXCLUDING the roof and the electric wipers. Everything worked on this Jeep as it should when it was parked. Will need all basic tuneup items and will run great. Bring a trailer, has one tire that is dry rotted and shot. Selling price is relatively firm at 10,000 but does have a little wiggle room. Again, It does have a title. Also have an ordinance manual and the original World War II lubrication chart that goes into the metal pocket under the hood. If anyone is interested, my grandfather purchased a military starlight scope that used to go on a tripod. I have just the scope, not the tripod, scope does work, and will let that go reasonably. Please, serious offers and cash only. I don’t mean to sound condescending, but offering 2-3,000 for a 78-year-old vehicle that is hundred percent solid is both ridiculous and insulting, I will entertain all serious offers.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

The top on this is an interesting one. I thought it was a Porter & Reed (the front portiion appears identical (maybe built from that design?), but it has angled edges along th sides of the top rear rather than rounded ones. Another Kanas-based aircraft-related manufacturer of hardtops was Blue Star, but this doesn’t look like one of theirs.

“95% bone stock 1947 Willys CJ 2a Jeep. Orig flathead 4 cylinder engine w/3 SPD trans and stock transfer case. Engine has not been started for approx 20 years but turns freely by hand. Body in decent shape w/75 years worth of dings, dents and rust. The hat channels are needing the most work. The top (aluminum)is a unique “military look” that, according to original owner, was built and installed by a Wichita aircraft manufacturer in 1948. The interior seats, including the rear seat, are correct. The transmission and transfer move into their gears freely but the unit seems to leak an excessive amount of fluid into the driveway. The engine also seeps oil from the oil pan drain plug. Frame is in excellent condition showing only a slightly bent front bumper end. This is a very original 1947, the perfect candidate for a resto. Currenly registered and titled. Numerous extra parts included: f & r axles, trans / trans case etc. Rolls freely on old tires.”

Jordi bought this CJ-2A with an interesting hardtop (the plates indicate this is a jeep outside the US) and posted pics to Facebook. To me, this top looks most like a Station Wagons, Inc, body.  The suicide doors and certain elements are extremely close (especially in the Pop Mech ad), but not exact.
