Jeep CJ 1947 Description

One of a Kind 1947 Willy's Jeep (CJ-2A)
This Jeep has been carefully rebuilt from the ground up over 3 years by my father, a retired certified ASEA mechanic and Jeephistorian. Starting from a sandblasted frame, new-off-shelf (N.O.S) parts were used whenever possible. Every piece has been carefully rebuilt and reassembled - you won't find a cleaner, or more authentic rebuild of a 1947 Willy's. Lots of fun to take off-road, or cruise around town with the windshield down. See below for details on each component. Thanks!
