1945 VEC CJ-2A Napa County, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4800.

The serial number suggests this is a 1945, but it should have full floaters.


“Back on the “Interwebs” due to Craigslist Flakes! Up for sale “Farm Fresh” Willys CJ2A “Flat Fender” Jeep. This is a very early, rust free, jeep. This is the first civilian production run of the famous CJ Jeep. The Jeep is a very low production number. The Jeep has a Buick V6 Dauntless motor (runs), dual exhaust, dual fuel tanks, headers, neat spare tire carrier, Dualmatic front hubs, Chevy tilt steering wheel. Jeep sold with a T90 transmission, but does not have a transfer case. The transmission and transfer case was pulled by the previous owner. This wouldn’t take much to get back on the trail. I have the original title and every repair receipt that was ever done to this jeep. This rig would be great for a full restoration, a vintage rock crawler, hunting rig, trail jeep, or summer grocery getter.”

“This is a fully restored 1947 Jeep Willy’s the previous owner inherited it from his father, and let the vehicle sit for 6 years. He traded it in at our dealership but did not have the key. A locksmith is making a new key for the ignition now. He had the Jeep started last 2 years ago. Have not had a mechanic go through the Jeep yet but intend to do very minor restorations to the Jeep to get it back to excellent condition. However am willing to sell AS-IS at this moment but once restorations are complete I will be asking for more on the Jeep. Very clean Jeep no rust and well restored just needs minor touch ups to make show ready. Has won car shows in the past before sitting for the past 6 years. Please call or stop by for any questions.”
