Help Identify this beautiful CJ please.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I saw this jeep and it is the beautiful. I want to build one just like it.

(these links are all the same.)

http://imgur.com/DjpO5





So, what year/model is it and what should I know about them? Could I drive this from Canada to Cape Horn in Argentina? Do they sell hard tops or soft tops for it? How does it run on gas. How do they fare off road? Just how small are they? Are they the simplest possible jeep? What do you guys think of them.

I think I've been bitten by the bug. I think about it all day every day..

Can I drive it in the winter? Is there an easy way to repair or prevent frame/body damage? Does it have a heater?

Thanks guys!

you should have talked to the guy about it. most jeep people are very approachable. there is a jeep like that around the corner from my house, only its white and all original. the lady that lived in the house recently passed away, and i want it soooooooooooo bad, but i'm broke and her son is a dick, so i just admire every day on my way to work.

Either a CJ2a or a M38. The 2a was the civilian version and the 38 was the military. Either way it is heavily modded.

Since there's very little original on that rig, I like the larger tires...assuming he's done enough to the motor to turn them.

Is that a sway bar under his front axle?

Without knowing what has been done to the driveline, we cannot tell you how it would be on fuel, or if you could drive it across a couple countries. If it is mostly original driveline, I don't think you'd want it as a driver, I don't think they did 50MPH very well.

Not correct. The M38 was the military version of the CJ3a, not the CJ2a. There was no military version of the CJ2a, it was based on the MB, but with quite a few changes.
