130: Dave Lewis’ 1946 Willys CJ-2A
This CJ-2A spent all of its life in the South, I recently purchased it and she is just about ready for cruises and enjoyment. Thanks to KAISER WILLYS Auto Supply, getting this CJ-2A was an easy project to get back on the road. The color is Normandy Blue, an original color as you know. I thought about changing the wheels to their original color, but I intend to use the WILLYS in local parades and disguise it as “AIR FORCE”.
I am 60 years old, I have owned many JEEPS in my day and I was a motor mechanic in the U.S. Army, and I worked on many JEEPS in my tour of duty. The one I regret not keeping was a 1973 CJ-5 with a 304 c.i. engine I bought on October 6, 1972, then I was drafted on November 3rd, and was inducted on December 7th. My AMC JEEP sat in my parents garage while I was in the service, then my interests changed, (women) when I got home… and I parted with it at 6,000 miles.
