Looks in good shape.

“This Jeep was completely rebuilt 10 years ago with a frame off restoration. Rebuilt original 4 cyl motor and transmission, new tub, new wiring, new Firestone military NDT tires, many new or reconditioned parts. My goal was to return it to as near new condition as possible, and it’s been continuously garaged and driven just 1100 miles since the restoration. This is as close as you will get to owning a new, 1947 Willys CJ 2A and is nothing but fun to drive. I’d like to see it go to a good home.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Whittier, CA $14,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

This was the seller’s father’s jeep and he admits he doesn’t know a lot about it. Seller seems convinced it’s a WWII jeep. It is a nice example of an early 2A jeep, though strangely it doesn’t have tool indents (#24566)

“Now is your chance to finally own a World War 2 Army Jeep! A great addition to any collection, this one was used by a VIP at the Estrella Warbird Museum in Paso Robles, CA until my Dad bought it 6 years ago. What makes this Jeep different is that it has a working siren and flashing amber light in the rear – great for parades and car shows. It also has a column shifter which is rare on these models.

Here is what else it has:
• Period correct WWII patinaed paint, canvas top and upholstery.
• Period correct tires.
• Appears to be original body, hood, floors – oh, the stories they could tell.
• Oil pan with skid plate.
• Authentic M-1 rifle holder with reproduction rifle.
• Shovel, axe, jerry can, portable water canteen and a mortar canister (just in case).
• Hand grenade shift knob.
• New brakes, drums and brake lines.
• New carburetor, battery and shocks.
• Lockable storage compartment under passenger seat.
• CA registered 1946 license plate.
• Runs and drives great. Gauges work, lights works, hubs lock.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to see the car. The car is located in Whittier, CA and is listed for sale locally so we reserve the right to sell it prior to the auction ending. This is a used car sold as is and where is and as such there are no warranties expressed or implied. You are encouraged to inspect the car in person or hire a service prior to buying it. This was my Dad’s car and he passed away so I am only telling you the information to the best of my knowledge.”

Peter noted that it looks like the driver side front spring is bent near the front shackle.

Ted shared this jeep. It has a few updates, including a spray liner on the interior and underside.

“Offered here is a 1946 Civilian Willys Jeep. This driver comes out of an estate and collection of fine automobiles. The in-house mechanic states that the engine and transmission have been rebuilt and the brakes are in good working order. Newer paint was applied and the vehicle shows well. The floors and undercarriage plus the inside of the fenders have been undercoated. A roll bar has been installed. The windshield glass on the driver’s side has a crack and will need replacement. Some paint bubbling was noticed also on the windshield frame. This is a no-nonsense little cruiser. Perfect for running around town, as a grocery-getter, a vehicle for advertising, parades or simply to show and enjoy. The vehicle is currently on display at the Murphy Automobile Museum in Oxnard, California.”

“This Willys is a Cj2a that has been completely restored from ground up.With the motor being all standard it has not been run much. I Ordered a new steel body mostly for the rust issues under the tool box and hat channel.By the time I replaced the channel and floor I was getting up in labor and cost.

I completely disassembled it and started with the frame and worked my way up. The list that follows of new parts installed to make it drive on the highway and be safe to operate. I upgraded the brakes, from 9″ to 11″” self adjusting; And new dual master cylinder. Converted it to a single wire Alternator to get the 12v needed for modern lights and all new cloth wiring.Rebuilt the steering box with new sector shaft, and the jeep does not wander going down the road.
