1946 CJ-2A Chisholm, Mn eBay


The seller has listed this as a 1945. Someone tried to correct the seller within the question area, but it didn’t seem to change the mind of the seller.  The serial number of this is #72596, making this a late 1946 CJ-2A.  The seller claims the tool indents were filled in, but they should not even be there with that VIN#.  However, the drain holes do appear filled in, so is possible there were indents, but then the VIN is wrong.  Of course, there isn’t a column shifter and the data plate is incorrect for a 1945  There are other issues as well.  Note where the emergency brake is located.  Here’s a few shots of how a 1945 CJ-2A should look from the CJ-2A Page (Jim Coffed’s Jeep).

“But this is a nice 1945 Willys Overland. Has nice MB steering wheel. Some rust on underside appears to be untouched for the most part. It does have original drive train. Solid original exhaust.

    Some rust on the underside??? How about the entire bottom panel of the tool compartment under the passenger seat? The winch mounted to the wooden plank appears especially sturdy

    Looks to me like the winch is a hand operated one. Good luck yanking yourself out of a mud hole with that. Maybe it’s meant to hold up the towbar and that’s it!
