This Willy's CJ-2A was sold new on April 5th 1949 by West Motor
Company, Steubenville, Ohio to the Wheeling Steel Corporation plant
also in Steubenville. It was put to use by inside the plant and was
outfitted by Howe with a hose reel. Its second life was with the
Pleasant Hill Volunteer Fire Dept. They removed the reel and
installed an 80-gallon water tank and was used as a brush truck.
The third owner acquired it in 2005 and treated this Willys to a
restoration. The tank was removed and restored to how you see it
photographed, back to an inside plant, pumper Fire Truck. Lot's of
era correct parts we sourced and now this Willys is loaded from
bumper to bumper with firefighting equipment. "Next Day Fire
Department" is sure to be a hit anywhere it is driven or displayed.
