We purchased this from what is believed to be only the second owner
Evolve Motors is pleased to present this fun-loving CJ-2A
This Jeep just underwent an entire ground up, frame off, restoration about 2 years ago, and the exterior shows it through and through. Every part, piece, nut and bolt on the exterior of this Jeep has been taken off, reconditioned or repainted, and reinstalled to factory specifications. It's a pretty neat story really, the gentleman we acquired this Jeep from actually built 75% of it in a 10x10 storage shed, just to get it running and rolling. After that, he brought it back to his garage, and began the full restoration. The flat panels of this Willys don't tell a lie, as you can see that it shows no signs of damage or filler anywhere in the all steel body. The exterior becomes the interior quite quickly on a vehicle with no doors or top, so one lap around this thing will leave you reassured that even the inner steel is all in A+ condition. There was no time (or expense) spared during this resto, as you can see even under the fender wells, hood, and floor boards are all straight as an arrow. As with any flat fender Jeep of it's era, the steel has some natural waves and ripples to it throughout, adding to the original character and “patina” of the steel. We challenge you to find a better looking example of a '48 CJ-2A anywhere
As we mentioned earlier, the interior of this Jeep blends right in with the exterior. The only thing we would point out are the newly upholstered and padded ORIGINAL seats and frames that really set the tone for this entire truck. Gripping the original steering wheel and shifting with those old “small knob” shifters will set you back in time. A time when comfort and convenience took a back seat to rugged reliability and capability. All gauges are new or refurbished originals, as is the caution tag on the dash. This Willys is the epitome of Jeeping and Jeep culture, and needs to be seen to be truly appreciated
Mechanically we had no choice but to fall in love with this truck. We hear it all the time; “I just had her running last summer” ... “but something came up, and now it won't start”. Or, “I just went through it top to bottom, but she still idles funny...” I'd be lying if I told you we weren't skeptical when we were told that this original motor was in great running condition just last year. We brought the Jeep back to our shop, had our senior mechanic take a look at it for a few hours. With a phone call and a couple of bolts, we were able to put a better cranking starter in it and were cruising down Lake Shore Dr like we owned the city. This little cruiser commands attention at every turn. The smooth running 134 cubic inch inline 4 cylinder produces just over 60 horsepower, and plenty of torque to get you through the backwoods without much effort. The clutch is nice and tight, and the transmission shifts through all 3 gears very smoothly. Don't let this little runner fool you, she's still a Jeep. Lock out the Borg-Warner DualMatic hubs, and watch this beast go to work! The 4 wheel drive system is flawless, and is sure to get you home from a fun day in the mud. She's sitting on brand new, period correct Power King tires Don't worry if you get stuck, the Koenig PTO winch works like a dream, and will tug you (or your buddies) out of any sticky situation. There's really nothing we can note negatively about the mechanicals of this restored Willys. Drive it, love it, buy it… It's as simple as that at Evolve Motors
