Don't know where you are.....go for a drive between Lumby and Cherryville, look closely, you may see the pink one, about 300 ft from the road on the left. I will be driving that way in about 3 weeks, I can probably take a pic if it is not after dark.

There are other Willys on that road, a couple pick-ups for sure and a panel for sale.

Wow, that thing is great! I had a 1960 CJ3B for several years and it was unstoppable with the original flathead 4, 3 speed tranny with the Warn overdrive and Spicer transfer case. If you put it in four low in 1st and let the clutch out, the damn thing could climb a tree on it's own.

Good luck, that looks like an awesome project for you and the boy!!

I had a '48 CJ2A back about 32 years ago. Loved it.

This was the one that originally got me interested in old Jeeps back in the day watching Roy Rogers:

I think I found nearly everything you need to build an original engine except for the block and oil pan:

They have a hood, too:

Looks like the frame is bent.

Did a few tests and found cylinder #1 is not working as hard as it's siblings


134cu in of pure 1953 F-Head power.....a whole 75hp
4 intake valves in the head and 4 exh valves in the block (thus we have the designation"F-Head")



Last re-build was in 1968 by RCEME. Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. Workshop #27



I looked into a cheap re-build, a set of 20 over rings and a complete gasket set is just over $100.
Since I need to do the clutch also ($100), I figure it's easier to pull the 6 bolts and lift the body off.

We found out mumma isn't a fan of Willy on the lawn.








Just sold this tonight. Looks like the parts will be ordered soon
Sad to see it go, we had a great time with it over the last 15 years, but I think this WILLYS will be a little funner.

Take a look at the frame, a popular mod was to swap the cj2a body onto a cj5 chassis

Kid was working today and Wifey had yard work to do and Super Enduro was left at work for the weeknd.
Looked like a great day to get some work done.

Time to take the body off

15 min





18min



1.5 hrs
Seats & fuel tank out, all wireing disconnected, body bolts out, pan vacummed and cleaned, steering column out.



Just then Wifey came in for the hedge trimmer and knocked something on the floor.
"Your wrench fell, I knocked it down"

I checked and picked it up."what, THIS"?

"Yes, your wrench"

"This is a wrench"?

"Yeah. That's the wrench I knocked on to the floor"

"OK. Thanks. But that's not a wrench. I have to get a pic of this to post"

She walked off shaking her head.....

THE "WRENCH" she knocked on the floor.



The tool box needs some rust repair.


2.5 hours into it......






For being 70 years old the frame is in AWSOME shapr.






The body looks really small now.
I used the crane cuz I had it, but the body is only 350

If that's a pic of your wife hanging up next to John Wayne, I'd let her call anything I owned anything she wants.
