833 YUS – 1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep – Ground up restoration
Imported into the UK in 2007 from Philadelphia.
This Jeep lay unloved until it came into the hands of the last owner who has carried out a meticulous 12 month ground up restoration (photographic record available) – and finished in the livery of “The Seabees” – United States Navy Construction Battalion.
Arguably one of the best CJ2A Jeeps available for sale – the restoration included, but was not limited to:
- Rebuilt Engine
- Rebuilt gearbox
- New Clutch plate
- Rebuilt axles
- New Brakes
- New brake lines
- Reconditioned road springs
- New shock absorbers
- 5 New “Bar Grip” Style tyres
- New wiring (alternator Conversion)
- New light units
- New instruments
- New weather hood
- New seat cushions
- Chassis stripped and painted
- Reconditioned bodywork
- Bodywork repainted and sign written
Receipts included for thousands of pounds worth of parts – Over 1000 hours of labour invested.
The result is a stunning Jeep, which turns heads whenever it is out on the road. Not the cheapest – but surely one of the best ?
