1947? VEC? CJ-2A Santa Rosa, CA $6500


This flattie has had some work. The serial number of 26676 suggests it is a 1946 VEC, but maybe the “1” was forgotten in the front of the serial number.


“This Cheetah Willys Jeep has no rust, the original rebuilt engine, 11 inch brakes on the front with lock out 4WD hubs. The steering is Saginaw retro fit. Tight ride with all new brakes, lines and master. She runs great and is a truly fun ride.

This is the second car I built with my daughter after the 45 Ford Jeep. She also did the Cheetah paint job with me altering stripping the bondo job someone did and redoing the whole body. This car runs really well, fun to drive out in the open air, the windshield is detachable, tail gate opens. (doesn’t come with dog)”

1948 CJ-2A Cottonwood, AZ $3500

1946 VEC CJ-2A Palo Alto, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000.

Nearly stock VEC #12683.

“I’ve owned CJ-2A serial #12683 for a couple of years, and I enjoyed it. The serial number indicates this Jeep was built in the first few weeks after the end of World War 2, making it a “VEC” (very early civilian) Jeep. I think it would be better off with someone with the time to restore it.

Overall the Jeep is in good condition considering its age: it runs and drives fine, though the brakes pull to the left; I’ve checked the adjustment of the brakes, and it seems fine, so I’d recommend disassembling the front brakes completely to see what’s going on before driving it.

***You’ll need to tow it home unless you’re my neighbor. Tow bar is included.***

During my ownership, I fixed a few things:

Year? CJ-2A Roswell, GA $2000


Not sure there’s much value here.


“This is a Jeep Willys from the 1940’s we think. It ran when we got it a couple years ago but we were going to fix it up better. We’ve changed our minds and would like to sell it and not fool with it anymore. It could be a nice one if someone took the time to do it. The basic parts are here – the body and windshield and seats, etc. There is rust and some rebuilding is needed.”
