If you follow these Willys Jeeps closely, you understand that its very rare you see these early post-war jeeps pop up for sale. But, it's even rarer to see them restored to this condition. This 1946 Willys Jeep CJ2A has an amazing color combination and only 170 miles on it since its full restoration.
The CJ2A was the first Willys Jeep used for non-war or peace duty (CJ = Civilian Jeep), but there's no denying the military forces influences on this early example. You can't help but see the same basic style that brought victory in World War II. An icon like this doesn't need to be flashy, but the fresh coat of a deep red paint really adds a touch that is typically lost on these jeeps. Careful attention was made for the gaps, the paint isn't wavy at all, and above the flashy red paint is a brand new removable canvas top.
Inside you'll find gray bucket vinyl seats, a 3-speed manual with a low and high speed transfer case. What little gauges it has, all work the way they should and overall the theme continues that no expense was spared during the frame-off restoration.
Power wasn't too much of a concern with these early Jeeps, but many historians are quick to point out that the 134 cubic-inch inline-four was a big reason why the military choose Willys for manufacturing the wartime Jeep. The engine bay is clean and free of any leaks or drips. The engine fires up reliably and is a perfect candidate to ride around in parades or to cruise to your local car shows with.
