1946 CJ-2A Prineville, OR $15,000

UPDATE: Thanks to Claus and his brilliant memory, we have another example of a Capstan winch on the back of a Raymond Concrete Jeep. In this case, I had posted it back in 2010.  Raymond Concrete was formed in 1897, but went bankrupt in 1989.

Here’s the image:

A seller on eBay recently had one of these rear mounted PTO winches for sale. It, too, was from the Raymond Concrete company.



Originally Posted October 7, 2021: David shared this CJ-2A for sale in Prineville. He asked if I had ever seen a capstan winch mounted on a rear PTO gearbox like this one. I said I hadn’t. Moreover, the special equipment brochure for the capstan only shows it being used on the front (see brochure below). So, does anyone know whether the capstan was marketed for the rear PTO gearbox? Or was this more likely a custom setup?



Anyway, here’s the jeep in Prineville:


“Paint original(faded) No rust, No dents, No body repairs. Good top and doors. Runs and drives good. PTO winch, PTO rear capistan(very rare) Tow bar & hubs. All running gear original and operational.”

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.”
