MY new old 46 cj2a

Here's the story...

I was looking online at old willys one evening and my mom saw what I was looking at and said I should email my grandfather. I hadn't talked to him in about 10-12 years. I emailed him, told him a little bit about myself and told him about my TJ and that I wanted to eventually build a 40s or 50s Cj. Turns out that he had a 46 2a that he has had since the 50s and it's the one my mom had ridden in. He told me that I could have it if I came and got it.

It's going to need a new floor, a new windshield, and some body pannels. I think the grill, fenders and hood will be able to be saved. He said that the engine will turn but it's a little tight. I am going to try it in a couple weeks. My plan is to get it running, then start on the body and frame work. Restoration is the word. Any help or ideas would be great.

so here it is...

I haven't actually seen this jeep in a few years. It's been in my uncle's barn for storage.

I just actually delivered my 48 2a to it's new owner this evening. Not enough time or money for these.
