1947 Willys CJ-2A Fire Truck

← Back to the Portfolio

History

These small nimble 4×4 fire trucks were perfect for fighting small brush fires before they got too big. These jeeps could go were larger fire trucks would not fit.

Some CJ-2A fire trucks were also sold overseas. In fact, 20 Willys fire trucks built by Boyer Fire Apparatus of Logansport, Indiana in 1947 were sold by the Willys-Overland Export Corp. to the Brazilian military.

The one seen today was purchased from Mark A. Smith, founder of Jeep Jamboree USA, and is one of a few hundred made by Boyer.
