View Full Version : 49 Willy's Jeep CJ2A

Hello all new to forum.

I purchased a 49 Jeep Willys CJ2A. It is painted army green. My son is big into reenacting and he will be 16 probably when the project is done.

My question is Does anyone know if someone took a 49 and changed things for it to appear to be a 1944. Or is it better to keep it original and paint it as an army jeep.

Does a 44 grill fit in a 49 ?
Probably dumb questions but just starting

If you want to stay original,you should not try conversion.as far as grills interchanging,I myself would take Measurments of each,to much chance just trusting someone saying yes.everyone measures different.I will do a little research,but not having a 44 grill to measure against a 49 is iffy at best.
