Upon the arrival of World War II the U.S. military needed a vehicle that could withstand anything and drive through anything. Ford, Willys and Bantam all submitted prototypes to the government, but the Willys MB was far superior both in durability and mechanical strength with its 60 horsepower flathead 4 cylinder that far exceeded the U.S. governments requirements. The do anything, go anywhere vehicle named the "Jeep" proved to be exactly what it was made for and more. After the war, Willys saw a need and a market for durable utilitarian vehicles for all the G.I.'s returning from the war so in 1946 they introduced the civilian model of their famous MB that helped win the war: the CJ-2A.
Offered here is a very solid example of a 1947 Willys CJ-2A. Finished in its original color of dark green, this 2A wears an older restoration but is a great Jeep to drive around town or for show. It comes with its original 2A split windshield and original Willys tailgate. The windshield currently installed is a CJ3A windshield for better visibility while driving. Mechanically it runs and drives very well and would be great for top down or even windshield down driving. No signs of rust or rust repair, the tub is original to this Jeep which is seldom seen today. A great Jeep and a lot of fun. Contact Alex for more information.
