“1947 Willy’s Jeep shipped from Oregon a few years ago and has been in storage every winter since. Frame is in great shape for its age and bed was sprayed with black truck bed spray long time ago. Good tread on tires. Has tow bar up front to take it on trips or to the trails. Original Willy’s go-devil engine. It runs good. Needs some work, but mechanic buddies say it wouldn’t take much. Not desperate to get rid of “Gretchen”, but could use the space and thought if someone wants it bad enough and throws me the right offer or trade, I would be willing to pass it on to the next guy. A total blast to drive and there’s nothing like an all American Willy’s. So throw me an offer for cash or trade – or a combination – and we’ll see if it makes sense. When it comes to $, would accept the best offer. When it comes to trade, I would be most interested in bare land, camp, possibly the right vehicle (good truck, off road vehicle, motorcycle, etc) musical equipment, farm/homestead equipment, etc….things of fair trade obv. Open to other ideas as well.”

1945? VEC CJ-2A Fire Jeep Berkey, OH Sealed Bid

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Jerry Huber confirmed that this is a 1945 VEC CJ-2A, serial number #11822. Jerry added, “That would place the body at the end of the 1945 production run. The Fire Dept. documents that they got it in the spring or summer of 1946, which is still possible with the time for the Darley Fire Conversion. There is also a story that the vehicle had a frame failure shortly after they got it from Darley and it was returned to the Willys Plant in Toledo where the frame was replaced with a heavier duty and reinforced unit. I have heard that story before but can’t verify although some one with more history on the unit may be able to confirm.”

==================

Originally posted Mar 2, 2021: Listed as a 1947, this is likely a 1945 VEC CJ-2A. It’s got rear hubs, indents, early windshield, a column shift and (I think) the earliest “WILLYS” data plate. Bidding is allowed from March 1, 2021, though April 02, 2021.

“L134 Go Devil motor runs well, rebuilt carb, new intake and exhaust manifolds, exhaust, radiator, hoses, starter, coil, battery, thermostat, all new brakes including lines and master, all new Walek 12V wiring harness, rebuilt steering box, removed tub to clean and repaint frame (394441) which was replaced at some point by previous owners. The tub was rebuilt by a previous owner and it you are a purest, it will need to have some rework. The 3 speed T90 transmission works, Dana 18 transfer case and Dana 41 rear is good. All gauges work however I have no documentation to confirm odometer.

Windshield is off 3A but have a 2A frame. I have the original air cleaner but prefer the K&N for better functionality. All fluids have been replaced this year and many seals replaced. That said, these Jeeps leak. Top speed is 35-40 mph. This Willys was manufactured in February of 46 so it would have had the column shift and been either Pasture Green or Harvest Tan. Found some Pasture Green on the underbelly. Looking for enthusiast who wants to take this restoration to the finish line”

“I have this gem of a jeep here, rust free 1945 willy’s cj2a with all original tub, body panels, axles, motor, trans, t-case, and much more. Flat head 6 3 speed. It has been 12v converted and a new carb and shocks and a few small things here and there, but I’d say about 90% original. Great restoration project. It runs and goes into gear hooked up to a gas can but there are fuel leaks, and the throttle and breaks are not connected. Might be able to fix it but I’m seeing what I’ll get for it as is.

Negotiable on price, but based on what everyone is telling me about this it’s worth every penny I’m asking and then some. Would easily go for 10k with minimal work giving her a tune up (which I have two boxes of new parts to do so) and can fetch upwards of 30k fully restored, which this is the perfect rust free body and frame to do that to. I want to restore it myself but I have too many projects, took this one in on trade.”

“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”
