I just found this board as I was looking for info about old Willys. It looks to be a world of information. Yesterday I took possession of CJ2A #88441. (I think it is 1947). My wife's grandfather bought the Jeep new in 1948. It's been in her family ever since. It was last driven in 1994 and has been in a warehouse since then. It seems to be in great shape, minor body rust. It was originally some color of red but has been re-painted a cream color. A HUGE rollbar, a power wiper motor, and a big soft top have been added - otherwise it appears to be all original.
I plan on test starting tomorrow and then determining where to go from there. I'll keep you posted as I'm sure I'll be back for help & advice soon.
