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