tom r cj2a 1946 restoration

Postby TOM R » Mon May 29, 2006 10:07 pm

well i just sold my nice cj7 a few months back and got rid of some stuff and fell into this project, when done it will look like a ww2 jeep at a fraction of the cost, not for show just for fun, i also have been given a m38 that has not shown up yet

this is the rollin chasis after a coat of o.d., all parts are sandblasted and painted prior to my gettin them so should be a simple build :D

This is what I picked up over the weekend. It ant no CJ. It is a 1944 MB. I took it to work to day. I got it from a guy in upstate new york who used it like a ATV for fun and hunting. It was $4000 and runs great, but the body has pices welded on to all over the place.

that is a rough ww2 jeep for 4k but that is the goin rate and the reason why I built the cj version, mine is for fun and so I can make it how I want without worrying about correctness, I got under 4k into mine and it is all new with almost 2 complete parts jeeps left over, good news is yours looks complete and that is important cause it makes for a very easy restoration,

dennis I am sure I got guys goin to show in that event i will have to try and get there, just remind me :D definitly want to meet up with more guys from the board

actualy i just finished puttin new shoes springs adjusters and anchor bolts on the rear both sides, the problem with the brakes was the ones i removed were bonded not rivited and both pads came off the drivers rear shoes and were beating around in the drum catching once and a while, got new rear drums also but they do not seem to fit the hub so I am waiting for a call back from the vendor

here are some pics
