Willys Jeep CJ2A 1947 Description

1947 Willys Jeep CJ2A. Frame off restoration completed 3 years ago. It was rebuilt from the frame up, with 3865 miles on it since then.
The engine, transmission, transfer case, and axles were disassembled, blasted, powder coated black, rebuilt, and re-assembled.
The rebuilt engine is the original 134 "Go Devil" Jeep 4 cylinder engine. It runs perfectly. I added a modern electronic MSD ignition system. The axles have 4:88 gears, a locker in the rear axle, and new Warn lockouts on the front.
I made some repairs to the stock frame, (it previously had a snow plow mounted weld on it) before having it blasted and powder coated lack. The suspension and steering was all rebuilt/replaced. I installed a 3" suspension lift kit, (springs) and revolver spring shackles. The tires are BFG All Terrains 32x11:50x15's mounted on aluminum slot wheels.
The brakes have been completely rebuilt/replaced. The brake lines are all new stainless steel. The drums and backing plates are also powder coated.
The body tub, fenders, hood, and tailgate are all new steel from 4 Wheel Drive Hardware. The windshield frame is also new, and it's the CJ3A style. These are better looking than the CJ2A style, uses a 1 piece windshield, has a vent, and moves the wipers to the bottom of the windshield.
The body, fenders, tailgate, hood, grill, and windshield frame were all powder coated yellow inside, outside, top, and bottom before assembly. Then, after assembly, the exterior was painted the same yellow color. This Jeep will never rust!!
On the inside, it has custom front bucket seats, and a rear jump seat.I fabricated front seat mounts that relocated the front seats back farther than stock. I also shortened the steering column 4 inches. As anyone who has ever driven a flat fender Jeep knows, they are pretty cramped. These modifications make it much more comfortable. I installed a painless wiring kit and switch panel, Kenwood stereo, autometer gauges, and a bikini top. This is a really cool Jeep, different than the average Jeep Wrangler. Might be interested in trades......looking for 55,56,57 Chevy, K5 Blazer, or Dodge Ramcharger, Any questions, I can be reached by 402-813-5312. Nathan
