Saved a flatty from the crusher

Got a call from a friend that someone dropped an old Jeep off at the scrapyard. Went to check it out and later that day I brought home this 1948 CJ2 that appears 100 percent original, down to the six volt electrical and generator. With a battery recharge it fired right up and I drove it around my parking lot with no brakes. Engine runs great! I'm thinking of making it my plow truck for the shop and parts runner. Maybe some wheeling too ?

Well glad you saved it, and got a nice deal too! I am digging the Brady Bunch interior, LOL.

Nice score. Still got the Jimmy? You could put that driveline under it.

Awesome! I have a friend who has the same year, model, still 6 volt and everything. Love it! It will only do 55 but it will go anywhere.

No, but I have all the parts. They are actually going in my other flatty, a 1941 MB slat grille, the 4060th jeep ever built.
