This is a 1946 Willys Jeep. I have done over 20 of these style Jeeps over the years, but this one I was doing just for me. With to many other projects now on my plate, it is time to let this go. If you are new to CJ's this might not make much sense to you, but if your familiar with them then you will understand why I have done what I have done. As I was doing this for me I went all out. (Yes, maybe a bit over the top). I will list the Good then the Bad.
The Good. The frame has been properly and extensively gone over making sure all of the cross dimensions are correct and true. The front frame support (Bumper) has been rebuilt up to the engine mounts. Giving this a true box frame in the front where these always seem to have issues. The box frame is of a much heavier gauge steel but still hold all of the correct dimension points. The rear frame (Bumper) has also been updated to a heavier gage steel and a very heavy plate was put in the rear where the "A" frame meets the rear frame giving a solid and flat surface for mounting a pintle hitch. All of the leaf spring shackles have been changed to a very heavy duty updated style, which are 2 inches longer than the original horseshoe style ones. To keep the axles within proper pitch angles, all four internal spring mounts have been given a 1 inch solid steel riser. In total this gives a total of a 1.5 inch suspension lift. The axle springs were completely disassembled, cleaned and painted with rust preventative paint. Then reassembled using 1 extra leaf spring to help offset the weight added to the frame. All off the suspension mounting hardwear is new. All four of the axle snubbers are new, and all of the suspension bushings are new. The front axle comes complete (as it should) with a torque reaction spring. The rear drum brakes have been completely sandblasted and coated with rust preventative. (drum, backing plate, springs, etc) Then given new brake cylinders and properly shimmed back together. The engine has been completely restored! This was a running engine to start this project. (as in I drove it in to the spot it is currently in). Every single nut, bolt, washer and engine part has been seperatly media blasted, primed and painted with the proper Desert Sand or high temp Black. Every single gasket/seal is new. The engine and transmission bearings are new. All the pistons and rings gone through and the valves properly honed and seated. The bell housing has been changed to a Fording bell, as I was planning on putting on a snorkel. The clutch plate, the pressure plate and the throw out bearing is new. The fuel pump is new. All the engine and trans mounts are new. (Ok, Ok, Lots of new stuff) This does have every part needed to complete this project. (Except, The fuel tank, and new brake lines and hoses.) Including lots of extras (2 radiators, 2 sets of shift handles (both short and long sets), 2 intake and exhaust manifolds, etc. The seat frames are proper civilial short backs and are in great shape.
The Bad. The body is complete but not what I would call "useable". The tub is bad with the exception of the front cowl down to the floor. (I have tried to stay with all original parts so I just hadn't decided what to do with it yet) Front fenders are rough, the grill is good with the lights, buckets and trim. The hood is ok and I was going to use it. It has four original civilan rims. The breather crossover tube will need to be changed as the one I have has pin holes in it. The brake master cylinder has been rebuilt but I have not run the lines yet.
I am sure there are things both good and bad that I am forgetting to list here. Basically you are looking at a completely restored frame and engine that is a Great start for many different style Jeeps.
