year-cj2a-nj41 year-cj2a-nj42 year-cj2a-nj43 year-cj2a-nj4

“You are looking at a Custom Jeep Willys. This Jeep has been built from the Ground up. Frame is a 1950’s cj5 willys that was stripped down and painted with all new springs, and hardware. Only thing that’s original Willys is the Frame, Hood, Fenders, and Grill. It Has a fiberglass body which has been bed lined inside and out and reinforced. This is a show stopper that gets a lot of attention! The drivetrain is a 1990 302 Mustang motor that had 90k on it before being installed. The following is all brand new when its was built: alternator, water pump, edelbrock intake, timing chain, edelbrock 650 carb, new ignition, headers, x pipe, magnaflow exhaust, radiator, starter, and much more.

Transmission is a rebuilt Ford C4 3spd with a 4500 stall converter, shift kit, and B&M hammer shifter. Jeep has manual brakes with disc in the front and drum on the rear. Steering is also manual but has brand new steering box (very easy to steer). Rear end is a Chevy 10 bolt. Jeep is Rear wheel drive only, no room for the 4wd. Fun to drive to shows and parades. Has a hidden stereo with kicker speakers front and back. Runs and drives great but could use just some tuning to make it perfect and little odds and ends. I have been driving it to shows and parades and it has been running perfect. Jeep is registered as a 1981 CJ7”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Kittery, ME $9995


This early CJ-2A has been refurbed. Has had some body work done, as the drain holes are missing. The windshield is an M-38 or replacement windshield, not a CJ-3A.



Nice restored 2A, serial number 18567 which means it was manufactured in Feb, 1946 making it a VEC or Very Early Civilian jeep made up of mostly left over parts from the MB. Has side indents on drivers side for shovel and ax. Go Devil engine runs well, transmission shifts nicely, all new brake lines, brake cylinders, shoes and master cylinder. New oil pan gasket. Oil changed and new filter. New hoses. All new gauges with exception of speedo which is original (as far as i can tell). New battery. Converted over to 12 volt. New fuel sender and fuel gauge. Lights work, including brake lights. Windshield is not correct as it is off of 1951 CJ3A. You can buy correct windshield frame for $500 and glass is another $100 to be period correct. Four wheel drive works. Exhaust is good. Tires are old but for a vehicle that tops out at 40 mph, they are fine. It is registered and drives nicely down the road. No title as is the case with most of these old WW2 era vehicles. Call 207 three 5 one, 32 hundred. No trades, agents and only cash please.”
