My 1947 CJ-2A is all original with minimal rust. It has spent most of the past 20 years sitting dry and protected in a former chicken coop. It is all original with matching numbers on the body, frame and tail gate. The most work that has been done on it recently is the digi-scrap page that my wife made for it when I pulled it out to put it in the garage. I keep meaning to get started on a full restoration but I’m intimidated by the task. I thoroughly enjoy reading the Kaiser Willy Blog postings and learn a lot that will be beneficial. There are many success stories out there that are encouraging me to get started. Thanks! This Jeep was given to me by my Grandfather back in the late 70′s but he was giving me rides in it through the wild country of south-eastern Utah beginning about 1960. What memories for me! My children also grew up with many happy memories in this jeep. I one day parked it away and never got back to it, but now I’ve got to get it running again so my grandkids can have the same good fun with their Grandpa. All I need is a little courage and maybe a good swift kick in the butt!
