The first of the production CJs (Civilian Jeeps), 214,202 CJ-2As wereproduced. The earliest versions used a column shift, until early 1946. The earliest units also used the MB's full-floating rear axle and hadmilitary tool notches in the body. Unlike the MBs, the CJs used atailgate and had "Willys" embossed on the hood sides and windshieldframe. The beefier T-90 gearbox replaced the old T-84. CJ-2A saleswere very brisk, especially considering the almost endless supply of MBson the war surplus market. A few CJ-2As were built concurrently withthe later CJ-3A. This very early CJ-2A belongs to Art Carey ofPhiladelphia, Pennsylvania. (Art Carey)
