Being new to the group and having only briefly met Hillbilly when he told me where to go at the show :), I have to ask:

If I had a yellow Willys, and Hillbilly said it was nice should I worry?  What if I used to have a green one? ???

If I had a green one?

  If your Willys is green, I'd say it ain't ripe yet and don't pull it, er, I mean, pick it....

I looked at the Shippensburg CJ2a today,  and bought the engine for $150.  I pull it on friday. This means that mine may run in the near future.  The rest of the jeep is very very rough.  It came from Summerset County PA (where they use salt on the roads during 9 months of the year)  It has a snow plow, a willy's wagon grill and rear bumper,  It has been completely plated over in aluminum sheet metal which trapped salty water against the body,  It is completely rotten.  The frame is straight but rough and the drive train is good,  It did start and move under its own power.  The springs are completely shot.  the seats were already sold.  If you need drive train components they can be had very reasonably (less engine, its taken)  I did NOT look to see if it had a PTO or overdrive, but I did not see it while I was walking around it.  It does have a clean title and vin if you are building one from scratch,  All gauges and control appear to be functional and complete.

Thanks Jeremy.

I get my 48 delivered tomorrow I am going to go through it and see what I need and don't need.

Hey Mike can you give me stock height from body to ground on your willys (oh we are going to need the moderater)
also if you would like you can come over tomorrow if you would like and see my new Willys. I should have my new one by 2:30.

Wait a minute, let me get this straight. You are willing to show me yours if I give you the measurements of mine?  ;D Hell, I'm gonna get mine out and we can compare them... what time should I be over?  :-*

(BTW: How good a shot is Dave?)  :-\

I do have a CJ2A / 3A Service Manual that is now in a 3 ring binder that you can borrow. It will have all of the OEM Specs you are looking for. My ride height is probably different from your original, since I am running 7.00x16 NDCC's with new repro springs. The 40's models ran 6.00x16 ND's.

I know that happens if I slip getting out of my Wrangler.  :'(

It was painful to let go of my green Willys with the stars.  And the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania even considered it an antique.  ;D

Getting it *straight* is crucial for accurate measurement.  8)  (I had to say something--you all were having too much fun)!
