“This rare “flat fender” jeep has a rebuilt engine, new OEM carb, new tires, front springs, exhaust, new brake lines, wheel cylinders and master cylinder. I have checked and lubed the front and rear axles, and driven it around the block after putting it back together for my winter project.
I got this years ago as a complete “field find” and would run. It had been converted to 12V with alternator. However, I noticed milky oil due to head gasket leakage, and it had no brakes. The engine was pulled and inspected, cleaned and found cylinders had been bored and the pistons/rings in good shape. It was then reassembled with new bearings and gaskets.
I replaced the master cylinder, all the brake lines and installed new wheel cylinders. I did not replace the old drums and brake shoes. I cleaned and repacked the front hubs/wheel bearings and the front and rear differentials covers were pulled to inspect gears and add new gear oil. This winter it was further restored with a new carburetor, new exhaust system, new tires, and new front springs/shackles. The rusty floor was treated and painted with POR15 and the body was sanded and hand painted with red rustoleum.
It starts easily and I have driven it around the block, but needs additional work before being “road worthy” such as new brake drums/shoes, wiring for lights and gauges, and oil leaks from the tranny/transfer case.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Owensville, IN *SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2600.

(04/08/2021) This seems to be a pretty stock VEC, which is why the lack of bow holders surprises me. This is one of several CJ-2As that makes me wonder if it was possible to get a CJ-2A without bow holders on the side.

“If this ad is still up it’s still for sale. 1946 Willys VEC CJ2A #22085 has tool indents, still column shift, eay air cleaner, correct generator w/cast iron pulley, early smooth cyl head. Has all body & frame tags, clean title in my name. Motor is stuck (soaking with MMO currently). Trans & tcase shift & steering steers. Sheetmetal needs some love but imo is salvageable.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(08/29/2019) Has a unique look.


“I have a 1947 Willy’s Jeep cj2a 3 speed, 4×4. That has been in my family since 1947. It was my great grandpas, he used it on his farm in east tx. It sat in a barn for roughly 40 yrs until my grandpa restored it. It has been garage kept since then. After my grandpa passed away several years ago my mom got the Jeep and she gave it to me. I have no place to keep it besides in my back yard. It runs and drives, and attracts everybodys attention. I know it’s worth a decent amount of money, I’ve done my research. Im asking $8k or best offer or I’m considering trades just let me know what you have the worst I can say is no thanks.”
