Willys CJ2A 1947 Description

This is a 1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep. The engine starts right up and runs great without smoke. Transmission shifts good and does not pop out of 2nd gear like most others. It did have brakes but the driver rear wheel cylinder went out, so I bought another one but didn't have a large enough hub puller to install. This has upgraded 10'' drum brakes which should stop it great in modern traffic. I've crawled all under the Jeep, and it has a very solid frame.
Here's a list of everything I've done to this CJ2A:
-Correct L-134 Willys engine w/ T90 tranny
-Wire brushed flywheel
-Verified good pressure plate, pilot bushing, clutch, clutch fork, throwout bearing
-Completely rebuilt starter
-New coil
-Converted to 12V
-New battery
-New motor mounts
-Correct GL-1 gear oil that won't eat brass
-New oil & antifreeze
-New carb
-New passenger seat frame
It has a Bestop that's in decent shape. A couple of the windows are cut and it needs cleaned up, but all the parts are there. It'll work great during the winter along with the period correct Harrison heater under the dash.
The things it will need before going down the road is to install that wheel cylinder, and change the yoke oil seals on the transfercase. It's a couple hour job that I've done on my Jeep, and just haven't had time to do this one. In the pictures you can see the body is in pretty good shape. Someone put in new front floor sections and covered the tailgate area like a WWII Jeep, but it looks to just be bolted on. Like I said this Jeep starts right up and will drive great. I have a clear Indiana title & all the serial number tags as well.
