Kudzupatch I got most of his tools. some went to other family members. He was cheap and rarely bought good quality unless he had too.

The one big find was a full set of Gearwrench ratcheting/open end wrenches. I have wanted a set but just wouldn't spend the money when I could just use a ratchet and socket. Have no idea why he had those unless someone gave them to him. He would never spend that come of money.

I have his table saw and a older import but all metal drill press here. Going to replace the cords, clean them up and sell them but not much else.

Yes, I am serious! Filled a 30 yard dumpster with trash. I have actually lost 4 lbs working over there and I work out in the gym regularly. At this point I was happy to to take the first offer. One less thing to have to deal with.

Still have other things we didn't want to scrap that I need to list and sell.
If there are some old tools.....I'm sure a lot of us would be interested.

I'm curious as well.

More important.....it sounds like it's going to someone who will restore it to it's original shape.....if they wanted a parts jeep, they would have low balled.

Kudzupatch Listed it and it sold in 45 minutes with lots of inquiries. I am very surprised and really appreciate the advice you guys gave me. I could have held out and made a bit more I am sure, but a buddy of mine told me when he got in the Car Business the best advice he ever got was "never turn down a profit and you will never lose money. Plus it is one less thing from this Estate I have to deal with.

Thanks again for the input!

Late CJ2A's also used the 7" Donaldson air filter as well.

letitloose06 Looking at your photos, it looks like that is a CJ2A . It has a 2A tub (top bow brackets on side and ignition switch location) it also has a bottom mount radiator. The driver seat frame appears to be a CJ2A style.

It could also be an early 3A that had a 2A tub swapped on later in it's life.

Also, it has the Dana 41 axle, which was phased out in 3A production in late 1950.

So the Jeep is probably a 1949 model year based on the radiator and rear axle.

Is there a serial number tag on the driver side frame behind the front bumper? I see it looks like the body serial number tag is still on the passenger side firewall, but covered with paint.

The windshield frame also appears to be from an M38 (center vent it fixed shut).

John Strenk Get as many pictures with everything cleaned out.

How are you listing it? EBay? let people bid on it.

Set a minimum price?

MrButterfield What a cool Jeep. That thing has so much character. You can tell it worked for a living. What was stenciled on the passenger side of the window frame? I see TR or TP but the rest is faded off.

Jim1611 I don't think you'll have any trouble selling it as is and avoid the scrap yard. If you were closer I'd consider it myself!

Kudzupatch Working on the ads for it today, but here are few of the photos I just took this morning.

Kudzupatch Finally finished with the clean up and the Jeep is at my house on the trailer. Of all things I found the cancelled check where my FIL bought the Jeep in 1963 and paid $600 for it. It lists it as a 1950 and an old tag receipt lists it as 1951. No titles in Alabama in the 50's.

As soon as this monsoon we have been having passes I am going to get some better photos and check and see if the engine is locked up. Get a look at the underside to verify frame is good but being a Southern Vehicle rusty frames are about as rare as a rust free 30 year car in the rust belt.

Kudzupatch Long story but my sister in law told me someone wanted the Jeep. I assumed she had a buyer and since it belongs to the Mother In Law that was fine. Then I found out she was giving it to someone 'I think' for scap. I contacted her and said if you giving it away, give it to me. After some back and forth it is mine now. Family can be such a pain.

Today i stacked my claim, I got it turned around and sliding the right direction. 3 flat tires so that was a real pain. But I am going to leave it there for now. It will be the last thing I remove so I can use my trailer for other junk.
