Jeep Willys

Ok, about twenty years ago I had a 1951 Willys cj3A. I bought it from a farmer in Deepwater. I was maybe 20 percent into the restore when I basically ran out of money and graduated from school. Reluctantly, I had to sell it. It is the one thing I have ever owned that I wish now that I could have back. Anyhow, I'm starting the process of getting another one. I've been checking online sites and looking for something in the 1947 to 1951 cj2a or cj3a range. Any of you guys ever restored one of these completely? I'm not an all original buff, but would probably want to get as close to that as I can. Any tips on locating one, restoring one, etc. would be great. thx

Have you checked out Hemmings Motor News? My dad used to subscribe to that and they sell every car imaginable in there. I suspect it's not the cheapest place, but I bet you can find one.

Oooh, look at the 1943 model for sale in there. I'd like to have that.

My dad did. In the 60's. 1948. It was a beauty. Mom drove us kids around in it during the summer. They used it for coyote hunting in the winter.

He was a mechanic in the air guard so he knew what he was doing. Rebuilt the motor, sandblasted and painted the body, the works.

Funny you'd mention this....2 miles from my house sits a Willy's wagon....not sure what you call them. Solid top, almost looks like panels on the doors. Has a for sale sign on it.

Edit* - After looking at RM's link the one I'm talking about looks a lot like the orange wagon towards the bottom of the page.

This board has been an invaluable resource for me and they cover early Jeeps of all kinds.

A couple of the editors from JP Magazine even post there.

The CJ-2s were the smallest and the CJs grew bigger with each subsequent model all the way up to the modern Wranglers.

thats why they go anywhere, such a short wheelbase. I only had mine out a few times before I pulled the drivetrain, but it was fun.

I am seriously thinking about buying a partially restored 40 Ford Pickup that is being sold by a co-worker of mine. Her husband recently passed away and she just wants it gone. I have been trying to find out the value of one and never thought to look a Hemmings. Off to research 40 Ford PU's.

Edit: Not one 40 Ford Pickup on the Hemmings Site.
