Ah...the memories...

My very first vehicle when I was 16 was a 1945 CJ2A. I paid $300 for it. It had the Willys flathead 4 cylinder. I ultimately broke a ring and scored the cylinder wall, and ended up replacing the engine with a Studebaker straight 6 from the junkyard. JC Whitney made a transmission adapter for it and the mounts lined up just fine, but I had to cut a hole in the firewall and the last spark plug had to be changed from inside the vehicle. Boy did that thing scoot.
