    Seriously though... you should buy those two flatties... Personally i'd make a nice frankenjeep out of them... you should be able to get one decent body and frame out of the two jeeps. be creative and build it the way you want it! :)

    One more thought. You could get one of them real stock, and have enough left over to do a rock-crawler or modified.

    slow time coming but supposed to be delivered Friday.

    I have room in the polebarn ready :)

    I could not wait and started painting the 48....

    I have over a dozen CJ2A pictures....although Harvest Green was original for the 1946, I loved a RED one.
    Pic of 48'...I didn't even prep....just started painting.

    I spotted a flattie sitting in a field yesterday, just got a glimpse as I was sailing by on the Interstate. I should go see if the owner wants that rusty old hulk out of his pasture, but it's ~5-6 hours away. :( And there was an old CJ5 in the next pasture too.:rofl:

    They both look like 2A's to me. I personally would purchase them for $500 as the deals can still be found but are getting harder to find every day. Do they have titles? Also looks as if the gray one has the better engine and possibly better tin work. Also looks as if engine in gray one could have been replaced at one time. Can you turn the engine over?

    Try to get it lower than that if you can. One has a horn that is worth some good money working or not.
    I went and looked at a CJ5 Sat that morphed into a CJ2A by the time I got there. Many owners don't know 5 from 3 from 2A. The engine runs good but body and even the frame are toast. Has 5 as new tires. Has working plow but no paperwork. $600 and I'm thinking of passing. Has one military solid disc rim that needs repair. I have an OCD about solid disc rims so I'm shaking just a little.

    I paid $500.

    Have not "played" with either, coming home tomorrow.

    No titles but I'm trying to get the seller to try to get them.

    More details to follow.

    Thanks!

    Speaking of flatties I picked these two up last weekend. I had my MB at a local cruise night and the owner of these jeeps came up to me to see if I was interested in them.

    This first one is an M38 tub, hood, fenders and tailgate mounted on a 3A chassis and drivetrain. It came complete with the front and rear seat frames, fuel tank, top bows and spare tire carrier. My goal is to sell this to somebody doing an M38 restoration that could use the body parts. The tub only needs some small patches.

    The second one is a CJ2A but I haven't tracked down the year yet. It is really complete and the leaky hydraulics did wonders to protect the floor in the underseat tool box area. It's hard to tell from the picture but tucked up under the back is a Newgren lift. I'm leaning towards hanging on to this one for a future restoration project.

    Cheaper than I would like to admit right now since I'm trying to sell the M38/CJ3.

    I saved them both from a trip to the crusher so the previous owner didn't want much for them.
