1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A, This is the first civilian jeep ever produced. It has the original 4cyl flathead engine, and is more or less original. This is a fun car to drive around town on a nice day or an unstoppable deer camp jeep. This thing is like a goat, it will climb over or go through anything without skipping a beat, especially with the new set of buckshot wide mudders I have on it.
First the bad: I was driving it about a month ago when the oil pressure went out and it died on my. I think it slipped a bearing but I am not positive. In short, it will probably need some degree of engine rebuild.
The good: These thing are extremely easy to work on and parts are readily available and relatively cheap. I can start the engine and you can hear it run, but it loses power under load so you can't drive it around. I have replace the entire brake assembly (drums, shoes, master and wheel cylinders, etc...) and it was running good around town when the engine went out.
