New entry - 1952 cj3a. Now restored
« on: August 12, 2021, 07:41:24 PM »
The lockdown blessed us with yet another cj3a.
This time it was a 1952.
Though in bad shape and dieselised, militarised the jeep was pretty complete with several mods.
Bringing her back to stock was not very difficult as we had some surplus parts remaining from the previous cj3a restorations.
A fast restoration job gave us another gem in our collection.

It sure looks clean!  You're right, there are some "do-dads" attached that I don't recognize.  I'm not sure I've seen a fold out windshield in a 3A before either.

The first step was to get her mechanically ready. Once the devil fired up, we finished the gear box, differentials and got the brakes working.
She goes to the body shop next for a fast round of tinkering.
The jeep was fairly clean with all original floors and has only 2 patches on the whole tub. Some missing and wrong parts were replaced and there she is looking stock.

After a fast round of body work, the 3a was pushed in to for a paint job.
We were lucky to find patches of the original colour under layers of fillers and paint.
Decided on Woodstock green as the body colour.

Nice collection!!

Interesting top on the red one!  Is it custom or from a business?
