    Default I bought a Willys CJ3a

    Hey guys, been a while since I’ve been on here, site was moving too slow to use but now seems to be a bit better using Tapatalk.

    Just wanted to share my new toy. I bought this 1949 Willys CJ3a a couple days ago. It runs, drives, and stops. Body is a bit rough, but not too bad for a 71 year old Jeep.

    The plan right now is to get some new tires along with some new bushings and other odds and ends to get her driving a bit safer and then just enjoy her as she is. Eventually will do a bit of bodywork to take care of the worst parts, but nothing too intensive. I kinda like the “used” look on it and it might look funny with too many straight parts on the body.

    First “mod” was to remove the mesh grill guard so I can admire that nice looking grill
