“Parade ready Jeep done up as a US Air Force vehicle. It is a 4×4, 3 speed w/reverse, hi/lo range. Has been converted from 6 to 12VDC with alternator. Gauges work, has windshield wiper and period heaters for driver/passenger. Has a canvas half-top and many other new parts. The original flathead four runs well, new fuel pump, currently needs exhaust work/muffler. Comes with a custom made tow-bar and vehicle cover. Currently registered with Antique plates.
VIN # CJ2A185125…………….a unique ride, and a real head turner.
I am 6’2″ and 230 lbs and don’t fit well into this Jeep, a little too tight. As far as I know, this has only been used for parades since being restored by previous owner a number of years ago, and I have only put about 25 miles on it.”

This is truly a great little restoration with everything from a new carburetor to new exhaust. Has approximately 77K original miles and runs good. Starts up fairly easily and runs strong. Original Flathead 4 cylinder Engine. Has new carburetor, oil filter, fan, newer starter, belts, exhaust, etc. and I’d recommend a new wire harness. Newer seats, and a new cover for it. This jeep shows like a 1946 Jeep Willys with some scratches on the paint and a little rust on the wheels so you know. It has a Clean Title with two VIN numbers listed at 72298@72705. It’s a great little jeep and just one that I’m not going to move and am downsizing.”
