1948 Willys CJ2A

This Willys is a Cj2a that has been completely restored from ground up.With the motor being all standard it has not been run much. I completely disassembled it and started with the frame and worked my way up. The list that follows of new parts installed to make it drive on the highway and be safe to operate. I upgraded the brakes, from 9" to 11"" self adjusting; And new dual master cylinder. Converted it to a single wire Alternator to get the 12v needed for modern lights.Rebuilt the steering box with new sector shaft, and the jeep does not wander going down the road. All steering is tight.The list of parts is long and I did not cut corners on the restore. I rebuilt the Motor, Transmission,Transfer case, went through front Dana 25 and the 41 Rear with all new seals gaskets and oil. I originally bought the jeep from a guy that had it up on blocks, and you guessed i, in his barn. He gave me a stack of paper work for all purchases he had done through the years plus a couple pictures of his family hunting in the old days. I kept the majority of the receipts from the purchases I have done and they will go with the willys. I have drove it around my little town on nice days but it has less than 50 miles.When I bought it, the last time it was registered was in 1982.It has original blue Oregon plates.
