My story really is not an exciting one. I have no super barn finds, nothing that’s been in the family for years. I can tell you that my Mom learned to drive on a 1946 CJ-2A when her parents were the care takers at the Statan Island Light house when she was young. I have always been a Jeep fan and have always wanted a flat fender. My love for Jeeps really started in 1986 when I purchased my first factory fresh Comanche. I had purchased my second Comanche in 1989. This one was a short bed 4×4, which till this day is my daily driver. I have had my 1946 CJ-2A coming up on seven years now and it has been a slow and steady restoration. My mid life hunk-a-junk is what my wife calls it. She will never admit she likes it, but my four children and I love to take our Sunday drives in it. The Willys came in very handy when we were hit here on the Island by Super storm Sandy. It went places and got around things our other vehicles couldn’t. Hunk-a-junk or not, with help from friends, it’s a real joy to work on and whole lotta fun to drive.
