1946 WILLYS CJ2A VERY EARLY CIVILIAN (vin 11845) ARIZONA STORAGE FIND
This is a very early production, perhaps the very first few civilian jeeps( CJ2A ) that rolled out after the war. Originally column shift these very early productions after the war for civilian use were installed with the same body as the MB's except for the modification of a tail gate, side filling neck gas tank, spare side mounted and windshield with WILLYS on it. A rare find as this jeep was delivered in Arizona and has remained here since. Last registered in 1970's and then put away. Original drive train except converted to floor shift. I had the gas tank cleaned and original carter carburetor rebuilt and it started right away.The body has bondo between the hood and windshield and at rear driver side quarter panel, probably to cover indentation as there is no evidence of rust when i scalped the bondo to see what is under it. It is a great candidate for show quality restoration. Unfortunately I am not handy and could not find a dependable body shop to help with body work. Tires are old. Call for any other details.
