1947 Willys CJ2A - a famous WWII Jeep - ready to drive - LHD For Sale
|The CJ2A is the civilian version of the famous WWII Jeep (known as the MB) from which the term "Jeep" was coined. Of course, there were no new vehicles available during the war, so the civilian versions were first produced in July of 1945 (2 months after V-E day and 1 month *before* V-J day!), As far as Jeeps go though, this body style is the absolute earliest a civilian could purchase. |
As you can see, this particular CJ2A has been painted in military colors, and is equipped with military tires. pristine, restored examples. This particular jeep has obviously been hacked on over the years, although sometimes its hard to tell wether something has been altered somewhere along the line or if its just 1940s technology.
These Jeeps were powered by 4 cylinder flathead known as the "Go Devil". (60hp at 4,000 RPM, 105 lb-ft at 2,000 RPM)produces 86hp and 103 lb-ft of torque.
The transmission is a Borg-Warner T-90A1.
- This is a 3 speed manual, floor shifted transmission with a first gear of 2.98:1, second gear of 1.66:1, and a 1:1 third.
The transfer case is a Dana/Spicer 18. This is a twin stick, gear driven transfer case, and in this particular series of CJ2As, is known as the "third generation Dana 18" which has a 26 tooth input gear, 1 1/8" intermediate shaft, and 2.42:1 low range.
- Produced from 1941 to 1971, this transfer case is known for its strength, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Because both outputs are in an oil bath, it can be flat towed when placed into neutral with the transmission in top gear.
- It has the capability of running a PTO (although my Jeep isn't equipped with one).
The front axle is a Dana 25. This uses a 7.75" ring gear, available in ratios of 4.27, 4.88, 5.38, and 6.17. I used the tire spin test to determine that this Jeep is equipped with 5.38s.
- Not surprising I guess, since this is the stock ratio for this vehicle. One deviation from stock here is the presence of Dualmatic locking hubs.
The rear axle is a Dana 41. This uses a ring gear similar in size to the Dana 44 (8.5"). Like the front axle, obviously it too has 5.38s.
Drivetrain & Engine: 4 cylinder flathead
