Description

Rare, original full hardtop, taken from a 1948 CJ2A, made by Carson Machine and Supply Company of Oklahoma City. Easy restoration needed with new window glass, hinges and repainting to make it a very interesting, historic addition to any restored CJ2A. It is believed that the aluminum to make these tops came from surplus stock purchased from the Boeing B29 Super Fortress plant in Wichita, KS after WW2, when production was drastically scaled back after VJ Day.The hex-chromate pale green primer is clearly visible inside the top, beneath the black coating liner. This primer is still used in aircraft production today. Originally the side doors would have opened on piano hinges forward and upwards, which was very awkward. At some time they were replaced with standard hinges to open backwards. Part of the original piano hinge is still on the rear door frame. Valued by Kaiser Willy`s $3-4,000.Stored inside but need the space hence price reduced.
