Car Description

1947 Willys Jeep


World War II saw the creation of one of America's most beloved vehicles, the Jeep. Now primarily produced for consumer use, the Jeep was once a military workhorse designed to move troops, help the wounded and more. The story of the Jeep begins in the late 1930s, when the United States military was searching for a vehicle that was light, rugged and could travel over rough terrain. By the early 1940s, the Jeep's design was complete, and the rest is history.


For consignment a John Willys-Overland company produced Jeep, Model CJ-2A. With a roll bar, rear seat, and some extras installed on the motor, we now have a comfortable (sic) truck from 1947. A real treat to drive, it bucks along, and honestly with the 4-wheel drive, it will literally go anywhere. Case in point when I visited Elephant Hill a very famous 4-wheel enthusiast must climb in the wilds of Utah, what kind of truck came to the rescue to pull out many a newer, and more advanced 4 wheel drive that got stuck? Yup it was a Willys!


Exterior

Featuring a higher off the ground than you'd imagine it to be chassis, this all steel truck is painted red, with black accents, like bumpers and trim surrounds. Utilitarian and simple are the buzz words here, but do not be put off, as this is a true performer. A roll bar for more safety is added, and this is a good thing, because taking a turn too fast you need to remember you are not in a Porsche! With a rag top in black canvas there are plenty of zip ups that can be taken up or down, depending on how hot the day gets, or if it rains. Speaking of which it is equipped with a motor windshield wiper that works fabulously only on the driver's side. Yes, the passenger has a wiper, but you will have to move it back and forth yourself. Simple strong Willys wheels have been equipped with more modern Warn hubs, which is the standard for manual hubbed 4WD. Snow tires all around will get you through nearly anything the trail can throw at you. If you really want to get gnarly, take the top off, flip down the windshield and go for it, but don't forget your goggles.


Interior

Again, simplicity reigns here, excepting for the newly covered two-tone seats, which actually cushion your ride, while on a smooth surface is surprisingly? Still bumpy! These seats are a front two bucket, and a rear bench has been added so you can take your dog, or friends, or whatever to the top of the hill. The stiffened suspension and 6.00 x 16 tires add to this but hey! it's a '47 Willys. A simple metal dash houses essential gauges which all work, and several knobs as well as the passenger side ignition which requires a reach to turn. Cranking of the engine is done with a strategically placed floor button, with which one can press it and the gas pedal simultaneously, now that's convenience. Rubber covered floors abound, and bare metal foot pedals are below the dash.


Drivetrain

The standard 4-134 L head 4-cylinder engine apple named the "GO DEVIL", pumps out 60hp. This is attached to a 3-speed manual transmission (with reverse). This is a T-90 transmission, which it is also equipped with the Dana 18 transfer case, and a Dana 25 front axle, and a Dana 41 rear axle on the 4-wheeling side...as I said go through anything. Just remember it's not a race, it's about getting there.


Undercarriage

Strong and beautifully designed, some surface rust, some patina but from 1947 we are looking good under here. Brakes are a little sloppy, but one can just use your gears if you are pointed downward.


A very interesting ride, and intermix with old school heavy duty 4WD technology, this does not disappoint. A mostly comfortable interior, a buckboard ride, but high enough off the ground to make it just plain fun to drive. And imagine the heads that will turn on the trail when you pull out a head job that got stuck in his Rover!
