traded an old bow for a willys

i had an old bow i was selling for 100.00 and was asked if i would trade for an old willys sooo i did of course..but she needs alot of work-there are no front floor pans,gas tank, seat risers or seats and there is no title--the good is the frame is great the body is in very good condition and i think it has the original go devil motor(W2640161 firing order 1-3-4-2 intake .014 exhaust .014---they said it is a 48but im not sure i have found that it has a GPW 6015 # on the passenger side block best i can read..the t/case say,s spicer 27572 brown-upe gear box 65 (i think) i belive it has the wrong windshield on it though it is a full window frame with no vent holes and looks to have been cut to fit.

and another thing it has double hood latches (i have seen a couple with these why are they like that, does it meen anything or just help hold the hood down)

getting ready to take her apart and try and decide which way to rebuild her..

any and all input would be very helpfull and most appreciated..

Some photos would be great. Look in the CJ section for old willy's rebuilds and such. I think it will help you decide.

Take care,

The block is from a WWII Ford GPW, does the head have 6050 on it?

I will give a few of the quick and dirty ways I use to tell the difference between CJ2A's and the earlier MB's and GPW's. Are there indents on the driver's side body right under the door opening? This can be deceiving because the MB's were made with tool indents there as well as early CJ2A's which were sometimes made with spare MB panels and such.
Can you tell what model the transmission is: T-84 or T-90?
T-84:


T-90:

Note the differences in the top of the transmissions, the T-90 required more room which resulted in a hump of sorts on the transmission tunnel cover on the floor. CJ2A's and on used the T-90, while the T-84 was ran in the MB's and GPW's used during WWII.

If it is a 48, more likely than not, it is a CJ2A. Willys did start up production of the CJ3A in late 48 and overlapped with the CJ2A in 49. I have a few tricks for telling those apart as well.

Pictures would help and we love seeing them. A site like Photobucket can help in posting pictures. Upload them, then copy/paste the URL surrounded in [img] [ /img]. Your picture should appear. There might be a tutorial somewhere here on the site.

I didn't have too much time to type this out while on break here at work. Hope I could help out a little.

Another quick way to tell is how the fuel tank is filled. If there is a hole in the side of the body, then it is CJ. The MB's tank did not have a fill tube, just an opening at the top of the tank. You had to lift the seat to fill the tank. Just another little trick.

well took the cover off and it looks to be the t-90, under the shifting plate are the #s 790148 n6 i think if i read it rite..

no gear oil inside but water in the bottom, so i drained it out and now am working on the shift forks, they were a little froze up but i think i have caught it in time to save.. could not find GPW on the head (where would it be located)

thank you so much...
