Hi everybody,
 
I appear, I live in Swiss and I have just bought a willys cj2a of 1947 Big smile so I'm new on this forum!
 
I need help because I can't identify my Jeep. Indeed, she has a frame cj2 number 114631, an engine MB number 521155 12-6 638632 W6 ANI-CRN1- of December 6th 1944, and a body MB.
 
But I didn't find the number of the body.
 
So, my question is: there had CJ2a with MB bodies?
 
Thanks to all for your helpTongue

Me too Hamhog. What a bunch of crap. Something with the Swiss and viruses/trojans it seems. While back while researching landjeager sausage a Swiss site wrecked my computer with "security tool" and other malware. Sure hope this one didn't screw me.
Clean up your act (photos) or leave please.

It sounds like a jeep salad, with both 2A and MB parts used. It would not have left the WIllys factory with a MB tub or engine... Was it sold to you as a WWII jeep or a 2A ? What did the seller have to say about what it was? It is not unusual to have a mix of parts as flatfender parts from many years can be made to work together fairly easily. THE problem comes when titling a mismash like that, and when ordiering parts you have to know what each part was from.
 
The engine is likely to be chain drive, a 2A of that chassis number would have been a gear drive camshaft which makes a quieter and more durable engine. However a MB owner might pay a premium price to have a correct MB engine, as many MB engines have been replaced with postwar ones....
 
Try photobucket or webshots for pics..

can you post some pictures of the bed interior? and the engine area?

From what I can see it looks like a MB/GPW tub, and Ford leaf springs.

The bed that Russ is referring to is the rear floor of the Jeep. It is the area behind the front seats to the rear of the tub or body.

That is a nice looking Jeep!

ID plate attached with pop rivets.... Possibly the tags are off another jeep.

Yes I know that but I wanted to know if there had been a series of CJ2 with "rests" of MB. I thought of the very first CJ2...
It is for it that I ask to specialistsWink

No. Your engine, body & frame did NOT come from the factory that way.

Quote I thought of the very first CJ2...
A "CJ-2" is not the same as a "CJ-2A".

The "CJ-2" was a pre-production experiment vehicle.  Many different parts from MB were used while trying to find the right combination to go to production with.

The "CJ-2A" was the final production vehicle sold to the public.  It did NOT have MB engines or bodys (but some pieces were the same as used on MB).

OK, thus I have one hybrid, a crossing in a way!
But that makes nothing, for a first jeep I am satisfied with it and I shall see later to buy the real MB.

Thank you for the help!

If you are happy with it that's what matters! Have fun, looks like it should  be a great little jeep, Incorrect maybe but still lots of fun and capable of some good offroad times!
 
Have you figured out if it is a T-90 transmission or the earlier gearbox from WWII?
