1945? VEC? CJ-2A Greeneville, TN No Price

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This may be a VEC, but I don’t see anything to indicate it is a ’45. Most likely it is a 1946.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/279765317579038

“Thinking about selling my 45 Willy’s. I have owned it for about 8 years or so and I just don’t drive it. It has the original drivetrain and runs very good for its age. Anyway I just don’t have a clue what these things are worth these days. Would anyone mind sharing their opinion on the range that these things are going for these days? I am clueless and any help would be greatly appreciated”

1946 CJ-2A Tualatin, OR $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

The price seems good on this parts jeep whose body is plenty rusted. The hardtop has be confused. I think it may be a Koenig hardtop with customized “suicide” doors, but the windshield isn’t something I recognize. It may be this windshield allowed the use of a CJ-5 style hardtop.

The windshield doesn’t look like the DJ-3A windshield (shown here) nor does it look like the early Worman windshield (shown here). Anyone recognize it? It certainly looks production quality. I might have seen something similar on a jeep on Facebook, but I can no longer find that post.

2 CJ-2As Lena, IL $50,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

Bill shared this Hemming’s ad for 2 CJ-2As, one with the Kubota swap. This combo is listed on Hemmings. Given the red jeep isn’t quite stock (front bumper has extra metal, it’s missing the front bow holder, there appear to be no tail lights, and the front parking lights are incorrect) and the black jeep is even less so (has even more mods), though has a new  Diesel engine, the price seems a little aggressive.

https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2022/04/28/pair-of-1946-jeep-cj-2a-find-of-the-day-0422

“These 2 1946 Willy’s Jeep CJ-2’s are being offered as a package deal. The Red Jeep is a 2 owner vehicle, being in the seller’s family since 1953! It has been meticulously restored using all period correct parts, and only comes out for shows or parades. The Black Jeep is built for fun! Utilizing a Kubota Diesel out of a refer trailer (only 500 hours), along with a full swap kit and advice from our friends at Overland Diesel. Both are in amazing condition, and are available now! The owner would love to see them both stay together, but will entertain offers on either of them separately.More details below.”

“Not much of her past is known, but our Owner is a collector of all things rolling and he had a goal when building this CJ. Give her a punch of power, address the challenges and bring a beauty to the show. Brand new steel tub and frontend assembly were required. Paint scheme was selected, and the rebuild began. Finished, she’s show ready and just stunning. Located in Sindey, Nebraska, she has a clear and clean title in our Owner’s name.

Purchased in 2012 locally, she was believed to be a long term resident of the Mid-West. Time took its toll, so a spanking new all-steel body was acquired and painted a stunning green with white flame accents. And when you paint a Jeep, you pretty much paint everything. Never used off-road, her 10 yr old finish is bright and beautiful.

“1949 Willys Jeep: I’ve been working on this for about a year. Recently found out that engine needs to be rebuilt or need to swap in a newer/used engine. I took the body off, scraped, sanding, acid etched primed, then sprayed with a fine finish tip and put on a raptor liner coating. Black raptor liner to the underside and the inside of the tub. Sandblasted the rims, grill, bumpers, light housings and powder coated with matte black finishes. New gauges, new steering wheel, new reproduction seats with new vinyl. New tires. New. shocks. New muffler, exhaust system. It’s been fun but I’m not wanting to dump another $2,000-$3,000 for the engine upgrade.”
