1945 VEC CJ-2A Fernley, NV Hemmings Auction

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Thanks to Mike for sharing this VEC CJ-2A that’s being auctioned on Hemmings.com. While not a perfect restoration, there’s a lot to like here and it’s a long ways towards that goal. The jeep includes a rear PTO gearbox and drum pulley. While functional, the exhaust pipe appears under the frame in the first pic, so that would be a good thing to correct. The front frame rail area could use some restoration, too.

https://www.hemmings.com/auction/1945-willys-cj2a-920716

“You’ll need to look twice, but this is a fetching and genuine example of American automotive history. The seller states that this 1945 Willys Jeep CJ-2A, from the first year of civilian Jeep production, is also the 325th such vehicle built in 1945, based on its tub and serial numbers, which the seller says were commonly mismatched in those years. Believed to have been originally sold in California, the Jeep is reported to have undergone a four-year, body-off restoration that included a new master cylinder and wiring harness. Described as 90 percent complete, the Jeep is reported to have a rear-mounted power takeoff with a flat belt drive.”
