1946 VEC? CJ-2A Lynchburg, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5200.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this one. Looks like a good price.

“restoration. The engine and transmission were rebuilt and the frame sand blasted and painted. Since I have owned it for the last 5 years I have also rebuilt the steering box and linkage along with various other fixes. The tires are only a few years old and have plenty of life left. The carburetor has been rebuilt as well.
While doing the drive train rebuild I brought this jeep back to a column shift which it was originally. I drive this jeep all the time and it has been tremendous fun. Only reason for selling is that I have another one and do not have room for two.”

“This jeep has had a complete frame off restoration restoring it to its original like-new condition starting with reproduction tub, fenders, tailgate, windshield, hood and grill all purchased from Willys Overland in Toledo, OH. All drive train components, springs, transmission, engine, electrical, etc were either professionally rebuilt or replaced with new old stock or repro parts-all receipts come with purchase. Body and paint work were done by an auto body professional in a authentic Luzon Red with harvest yellow rims and accent paint.

This vehicle has been driven less than 500 miles since its restoration was completed in 2009. I’m regretfully selling this since I have 4 others and I need to part with some due to tackling a major house renovation. This jeep starts quickly, runs like new and is ready for the beach, mountains, ranch, farm or wherever you want to enjoy it. I have outfitted it with new lap seat belts in front and rear seats which were not not originally installed in these jeeps.”

“Very clean, and near original 1948 Willy CJ2 , engine was rebuilt some years back and it runs sweet & quiet, very low miles/hours. only used during deer season for the majority of its life. Parked indoors and covered. Runs great – all original engine, trans is tight, original 6 volt system with new battery, no major dents or impacts, paint is nice, suspension is good and OEM, has military tires and I have 2 spares. This is a very rare find, it is NOT modified or torn up. These are tough to find in stock condition these days, could be used as is, or an excellent restoration vehicle for full on resto. (more fun to use though). NO TRADES”

“This jeep was my project in high school about 5 years ago. It’s been kept in the garage since then. Starts and runs like a champ, the engine (original 4 cylinder L-head) was rebuilt just before I got it, so very low hours. We had the transmission rebuilt, shifts like the day it was built.

“This Jeep is in excellent condition. It runs and drives how a new Jeep in 1948 would. It has had a frame off restoration before 2014. The drive line was rebuilt, from carb to clutch, in September of 2015 totaling nearly $7000. Documents can be provided for the driveline work. All the gauges work, and are as accurate as they would have been in ’48.

This is a true CJ2A, not a military conversion. It is a very clean example and gets lots of attention. It is the most fun you can have at 50MPH. If you would like to drive and own a REAL Jeep, this is it. No AC, no airbags, just die like a man ruggedness. You can enjoy this Jeep for a long time to come. It does have 2 lap belts for the front, they work great holding you in while bumping along the road.

The underside is just as clean as the top, showing very little evidence of little more than dirt road use. It needs the opportunity to be enjoyed off-road a bit or to take you wife to coffee on Saturday morning.

The price is OBO and all serious offers will be entertained. I am willing to ship at the buyers expense. Feel free to call or text. Jeep is located in OKC.”

“For sale is my 1946 Willys Jeep CJ2A. Runs great, stops as well as a 1946 jeep ever could. New front brake shoes/wheel cylinders, master cylinder and hardware last year. New front and rear pinion seal this year. Reproduction windshield frame, glass does have two small cracks, please see the pictures. This is a 12 V conversion. Headlights and tail light work, but brake light does not – I suspect it is the switch. No turn signals. Horn doesn’t work, but there is a functional siren. New Coker Firestone tires last year and the wheels were professionally sandblasted and powder coated at that time.

1946 CJ-2A Goffstown, NH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9500

(06/16/2018) Column shift 2A that’s never been restored according to the seller.

“1946 Willys column shift CJ2A. This is a survivor and by that I mean it has never been restored, only maintained. This was purchased new by the same family who owned it for 70 years before I bought it. It was used on the families country home in upstate New York for hunting and fishing mostly and always garage kept. It has never been used to plow. Everything works as it should. It still has the generator but everything was converted to 12V long ago. Other things not stock include 2 taillights and directionals.

The top is original or period correct and the jeep was apparently always used with the top on. All the original hardware for the top is there. That said the top is unique as it’s original but it has some rips and the windows are cloudy. There were floor mats throughout that were removed prior to taking the pictures.The jeep starts, runs and sounds great. It will need a new exhaust. One picture shows the gages and the reading warmed up and at an idle. Column shift works well but going to 2nd takes a getting used too. Wooden box between the front seats is a 4 place rifle rack. The ID tags on the body, dash and frame are all present and with matching numbers. The body on this jeep while original has been “kept up on” over the years with body work as needed. Jeep is being sold with a bill of sale and a NH registration.”

(06/23/2018) Palisade is near Grand Junction, so the body may be in very good shape still.

“This is a life-long western Colorado automobile. It spent most of its life in Palisade on a peach orchard. There is very little rust.
It has an excellent, professionally built L134 flat-head “Go-Devil” engine with correct carburetor, air filter and original 6V electrical system. The brakes are all new including the brake lines, wheel cylinders and master cylinder. The exhaust system is also all brand new. The seats are redone with the correct springs and covers.
This is a very good candidate for a full restoration, or to bump around the mountains in something with character.”
