Willys Jeep 1949

60115 miles

Gateway Classic Cars in DENVER welcomes this 1958 Willys Jeep. This one is sporting a Chevy 350 V8 under the hood, matted to 3 Speed Manual W/ Over Drive.
The word “Jeep” became a registered trademark of Willys-Overland in 1950. A short three years later, the company was sold to Henry J. Kaiser for $60.8 million and becomes Willys Motors Inc. The company was marketed as the “The world’s largest maker of four-wheel-drive vehicles. Back in the 1950s there was a rise of the recreation vehicle, as well as engineering superiority. Grass-roots enthusiasts helped launch Jeep Jamborees and took the original freedom machine to new heights in sales. The CJ-3A is considered by many to be the father of recreation vehicles. Introduced in late 1948, the CJ-3A was very similar to the previous model, but featured refinements over the CJ-2A including; a one-piece windshield with bottom vent and dual bottom-mounted wipers, a more robust transmission, transfer case, and beefier Spicer 44-2 rear axle. The CJ-3A could be easily differentiated from the CJ-2A by its one-piece windshield.
