: Sixty years ago today people saw the first Civilian CJ-2A Jeeps in New Hudson, Michigan. Click on the link to see the original badge that the guest wore that day. http://www.agrijeep.com/jeeps/history.htm The Fat Tire Beer was a great way to celebrate the occasion tonight Fred. Thank you and thank you to the many others for all that you have done to show the Very Early Civilian Jeep history. Here. Here. Hail to the Jeep!!!!! Cheers!!!!!
How true, today or yesterday 60 years ago my Jeep rolled off the line (cj2a10021). I would have never know this if it weren't for a hand full of enthusiasts that rolled up their sleaves and dug into the history and details of production #'s and dates. I want to thank these individuals for furthering this hobby and giving it added meaning and value. I would give some of the names I know, but I would surely miss many. My jeep sat for eight years in my bone yard as a parts Jeep untill I was stealing the front springs of it and seen the frame #.! I'm sure It will take another eight to round them back up. Darron, there can't be many out there with a collection like yours, I bet your the kind of guy that will find CJ1 out there! Happy birthday CJ2A.
