Hello all!

I’m giving the CJ-2A Page members first crack at this nice MB/CJ-2A “tribute” jeep. I located it in CT in 2016 and my cousin restored it over six months and finished it in March of 2017. He’s pretty meticulous, and as you can see, he did a fantastic job. And it runs and drives very well.

The jeep has a 1948 CJ-2A frame, Engine and transmission with an original 1945 MB metal body, hood and grill. The previous owner had a ’48 2A, but the body was junk. His brother had a decent MB body so he put the two together and made a really nice, fun jeep. Worst thing about it was that he Rhino lined the entire passenger area!

My cousin spent about 40, very slow hours, hand scrapping that liner out of the inside. It is really looking great now!

The jeep is as follows: Five new combat rims and tires, replaced 2A hood with an original MB hood, original MB top bows (no canvas), MB seats and cushions, blackout light, pioneer tools, MB rear seat, body hand grabs and a great paint job.

As can be seen, it does retain the CJ-2A windshield and the non-military rear lights.

The jeep is in Raleigh, NC with my cousin, so please don’t think I have it in CT! 😊 My cousin is not that computer savvy, so I told him I’d post it for sale.

PM me if interested and I can get you in contact with my cousin. This is all on the “up and up”, as I am no stranger to the 2A Page. BTW, he discovered that he likes restoring vehicles more than driving them and that’s why he decided to sell it!

He is asking $13,500.00 and it is negotiable.

Love to know what you think too as this was his first vehicle restoration! 😊

Jerry - thanks for posting this ad. I did buy the jeep from your cousin. This Jeep is in amazing condition, and I am very happy with my purchase. Your cousin should do this full time.

Thanks Jeff!
I talked with him today and though it was hard for him to see it go, he knows it's in good hands!
He is so meticulous when he gets into a project that I keep telling him he should do more!
I hope you get lots of "smiles per mile" out of it!
Enjoy it and please keep all of us here on the CJ-2A Page updated on your new toy!
