My first vehicle at age 16 was a 1947 Willys CJ-2A back in 1965. I worked summers haying for ranchers to buy it. Had to sell it to get through school. That was truly a heart breaker. After all these years I finally located this one, did body and paint work, mechanically it is very sound. We go to the mountains nearby all the time with it. The wife say it is never to be sold as she loves it so much.
