225: Vern Selvy’s 1947 Willys CJ-2A
Here are some shots of my ’47. She’s stock except for Ford truck brakes, Rancho 2″ lift, 31 spline Dana 44 rear with flanged axles and new Trac Loc, roll cage and carrier. The engine is the original L-head bored .040 over, rebuilt T90 and Spicer 18 t-case, generator, distributor, starter, Solex carburetor, steering box, Dana 25 front axle, re-cored radiator, Optima 6V battery, CJ3A windshield. The upholstery was done by my lovely wife. I live a ways from the mountains so someone please tell my wife how bad I need an overdrive with 5.38’s. She’s built for camping and trail running though she’s been through Rubicon several times. I’ve had her since the early eighties and had a 1971 CJ-5 before that. She goes by Nelly.
