“I have a collection of 1946 VEC CJ2A Jeep parts for restoration or just parts. I was going to restore this but I have an aircraft restoration project that is more demanding of my time.

Parts include: Rolling chassis, (full floating rear axle), with tub, 4 like new 600×16 military NDT tires, engine, transmission/transfer case, radiator, rear driveshaft, drivers seat frame, non-VEC windshield frame, tailgate, hood, front fenders and grill.

Missing parts: Front drive shaft, exhaust system, fuel tank, VEC windshield frame, passenger seat frame and both rear axles.

The tub is interesting in that there is and opening around the steering column for the column shift linkage it also has the cover and mounting holes that look original for a floor shift. The trans I got with it is a top loader T90 floor shift.

There is the usual rust in the floors, toolbox and hat channels.”

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ2A. I bought it a couple years ago as a fun toy. It was beautifully restored by the previous owner. It is definitely a great little vehicle and it gets lots of looks, thumbs up and honks (the good kind). I truly just don’t have time to drive it and can use the extra space. It’s time to move it along to someone that will actually have time to enjoy it. Everything is mechanically sound. It starts up right away and runs better than most of my other classic cars. Truly a great car to just get in and drive. I typically ran most of my local errands in it because it’s fun to tool around in and a cake walk to park. Please let me know if you have any questions, I’m definitely not an expert on these but I will help in any way I can. I’m also happy to send any specific pictures you might want. Thanks for looking!

Just paid the registration, good through October 2020
Title in hand and in my name

P.S. I will not respond to low ball offers. I’m in no rush to sell. I’m happy to continue running errands in it =)”

“Upon the arrival of World War II the U.S. military needed a vehicle that could withstand anything and drive through anything. Ford, Willys and Bantam all submitted prototypes to the government, but the Willys MB was far superior both in durability and mechanical strength with its 60 horsepower flathead 4 cylinder that far exceeded the U.S. governments requirements. The do anything, go anywhere vehicle named the “Jeep” proved to be exactly what it was made for and more. After the war, Willys saw a need and a market for durable utilitarian vehicles for all the G.I.’s returning from the war so in 1946 they introduced the civilian model of their famous MB that helped win the war: the CJ-2A.

Offered here is a very solid example of a 1947 Willys CJ-2A. Finished in its original color of dark green, this 2A wears an older restoration but is a great Jeep to drive around town or for show. It comes with its original 2A split windshield and original Willys tailgate. The windshield currently installed is a CJ3A windshield for better visibility while driving. Mechanically it runs and drives very well and would be great for top down or even windshield down driving. No signs of rust or rust repair, the tub is original to this Jeep which is seldom seen today. A great Jeep and a lot of fun.”

“1946 Jeep Willys cj2a with rare aluminum hard top!
4 cylinder “Go Devil” L-head engine. Jeep starts and runs strong. Brakes, steers and shifts through all gears with no problem – road worthy. 4 wheel hi/low works. Engine was removed and re-built in 2008 (have receipts) with a new clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing. Radiator replaced and new tires. New spark plugs in 2016. Temp, amp & oil pressure gauges all work. Have owner’s manual and mechanics manual. New original style spare tire carrier/mount from Walcks (not generic aftermarket carrier). Has new front turn signals as well as correct tail lights. Headlights work, also has a cabin heater (under driver dash).

All footman loops are present. Original body, not perfect but pretty close and amazing for 70+ years old. Paint is old flat finish, hard to get patina in a paint can. Windows slide open and shut. Seats are good – no tears. Bolt on roll cage for safety along with harness seat belts-can be removed.

One crack in windshield and one crack in side rear aluminum top window. Neither bothered me, but could be replaced cheap! Minor oil leak but for the age, what can you expect (most likely around a seal). I bought another Jeep a few years newer with a snow plow and so wife says one has to go so she can get her vehicle back in the garage! Hoping to find this CJ a good home at $6,500. Also have 5 original (not aftermarket) 16″x 4.5″ wheels in fantastic condition for $400.”
