I have in my possession a 1946 Willys, CJ2A Jeep made in only the second production year of civilian jeeps and looking much like what the kids call and army jeep...(a.k.a. MB).

My grandfather bought it used in 1948 and it passed onto my father when he bought out my grandfathers business in the fifties.

After my father passed away, I inherited the vehicle from my mother about ten years ago. It is all original and has a completely rebuilt "go-Devil" flat-head four engine.

It is one tough piece of equipment. In my teenage years (read as brainless) I managed to completely flip it upside down (roll it) without touching the top to the ground, and hence landing back on its wheels. The only thing shaken loose by the experience was the driver....me.

Anyway, it runs great and is my summer fun car. I am sure that after I am dead and buried this Willys Jeep will still be on the road.

Larry's Comment: Would love to see some actual photos of your tough little Willys.
