1946 Willys

NICE AND very RARE, 46' cj-2a column shift Willys jeep serial #293xx. Nice overall condition, has been in barn storage for over 20 years.What makes this unit more desirable is the fact that it is FACTORY built on a MB military chassis. Only a few hundred were built this way starting around serial number #29000. Documented by a well known jeep expert, this is one of the batch of those hybrid jeeps. It is surmised that there was either a shortage of cj chassis or a bunch of leftover Military frames that needed to be used up.....not more then a handful surviving.!
Whatever the reason, this is not a homemade conversion....there are about 22 modifications done to the MB frame to make it useable for the cj2a. All brackets and mounts are custom made and factory installed. Even the machine gun mount was trimmed to fit the body.
Mostly all original with Minor civilian mods. 6v, Original chain drive engine, t90 side shift transmission.Very rare full pto unit with drum pulley, original to the jeep. Has new bearings..Data tags and frame tag are exceptionally nice and undamaged.
Clear title.
Has rust thru in the toolbox and some hat channels. Not a rust bucket by any means. Not all dented up.Will need full restoration to bring it back to former glory. Had a quick cosmetic makeover done...
Don't miss out on this super RARE column shift cj2a....not something you see everyday. It deserves a museum quality restoration.
Thanks, please email questions.
