    Forgive my ignorance, but what is a VEC jeep? Does it have anything to do with the column shift?

    Mark … that’s a common question.

    From the CJ-2A Page comes this explanation:

    there are two distinct early CJ-2A’s. They are referred to as Very Early Civilian (VEC) and Early Civilian (EC) CJ-2A’s. A CJ-2A up to about serial number 34530 is considered VEC and from mid-1946 to about mid-1947 is considered EC. Only minor changes were made after the mid-1947 models.

    Here is a great book about how the preproduction and early CJs:

    I should add that while the VEC designation is used, I haven’t seen the EC designation ever used.

    And, to answer your question, the column shift and tool indents on the driver’s side are two common characteristics of the VEC.

    I hope that helps … any more questions, either add to the thread or shoot me an email at
