Gateway Classic Cars of Charlotte is proud to digitally present this 1948 Willys CJ2A.
From 1941 to 1945, Willys produced the MB model, the original go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle, which came to be known by its nickname, “Jeep,” and was made famous during WWII. Just after the end of World War II, Willys motors had to figure out what to do with the parts that were intended for jeeps that were no longer needed for the war effort. The CJ-2A looked like a civilianized MB with a tailgate and side-mounted spare tire. One significant difference between the MB and the CJ-2A can be found by looking at the grilles of the two vehicles. The MB had recessed headlights and nine-slot grilles, while the CJ2A had larger headlights flush-mounted in a seven-slot grille.
This little 4×4 is just as cool as it is capable.
