(01/12/2010) I’m guessing this has some cammo paint.  It appears solid from what I can see.

Builds: Trevor’s Old School CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Builds • TAGS: .

I gotta say I like this jeep.  There’s enough old school stuff to make me smile.  Check out the battery, the roll cage, the art on the back, the dashboard, the gauges, the gas pedal … I could go on.

The owner of this jeep is 16 year old Trevor, who inherited it from his father.  Trevor’s going to make some updates to this jeep, such as adding power steering.  He asked for some advice regarding steering so naturally I asked for pictures.

Trevor wrote, “thanks so much for your time and advice! it really means a lot to me cause i wanna get this thing out on the trails like my dad did back in day.”

1945? CJ-2A Libby, MT *SOLD**


1945_cj2a_libbyUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“One 1945 Willys Jeep Cj-2A up for sale. I bought this jeep for my father, but his location no longer allows for this type of vehicle.  The jeep is in need of restoration, but is nearly ready to drive. The jeep has a brand new set of tires.  The stickers haven’t even worn off of them.  They have approximately 30 yards of mileage on them. There is also a new starter installed. The engine turns over, and spark is good.  It is not running due to a probable timing issue.  It backfires, but doesn’t start yet. This jeep is in need of a new wiring harness, along with various and sundry repairs.  The frame is good, the drive system appears to be in running order, although with some use it will probably need some seals and gaskets to be replaced. The tub has quite a bit of rust, as is normal with a 1940’s jeep.  The tailgate and windshield frame fold (no glass in the windshield though), and the attached towbar is usable….”

The paint job on this is interesting.  The bumper is pretty wild; I guess the jeep was used for pushing?

1949 CJ-2A Tempe, Az eBay


1949_cj3a_tempeUPDATE: Now on eBay. Many more pics and very detailed description — if only all sellers were so precise!

This jeep looks fantastic, but I am surprised someone would do all this work and not replace the 41 rear end with a Dana 44.  Note that this is the original tub, but the tailgate has been carefully removed.

“1949 Willys CJ-2A Jeep which has been mildly customized and modified for off-road and everyday usage around town. This Jeep has been professionally done with attention to detail and function, incorporating many modern upgrades yet still keeping the period CJ-2A look. Although this Jeep has the look and capabilities for serious off-roading it has never been driven on anything but hard surfaced highways. It has been re-powered with a Chevrolet 283 small block backed by Muncie 4-speed transmission and goes like a bat-out-of-hell, but has plenty of low-end torque for any situation.”

Here’s a 1947 CJ-2A with lots of pics on eBay. I keep thinking I’ve seen this one, but I couldn’t find it in a search of past posts.  Maybe it was bought and is being resold?

“Seats are Bestop Trailmax.  Low back height fit the small style of the Jeep.  Great Hot Rod look.  I had tried tall back seats with five point harnesses but they were too restricting and did not look proportional.  Lap belts are just the five point harnesses.  I just buckle them around the waist and just let the shoulder belts lay there….”

Here’s a parts jeep.  With the Dana 30 front and AMC 20 rear.  The paint job is unusual.  The back of this body appears solid (no tailgate).  I’m wondering if that’s a DJ body.
