1945_cj2a_sloUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

Here’s what appears to be a very restorable VEC CJ-2A.  And it runs!

“Here is a 1945 Jeep Willy’s for sale. Its been off the road for about 12 years. Stock flat head engine. The oil’s been changed and a tune up has been performed. Carb rebuild, plugs, wires, points, condensor, interstate battery. It runs but “pops” back through the intake. It drives but needs brake work. Someone left the lid off of the master cylinder for quite some time. The rust is around as you can see in the pictures, some parts are very rusty but the chassis is sound. I was planning on fixing this for the ranch I live on but I just do not have the time. Clear tiitle. I will deliver it if I get the right price for it. Can be seen 9 to5 monday through friday and weekends by appointment”

1947 CJ-2A Avondale, Az $2700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_avondaleThis jeep has some great drive train upgrades.  With the seller willing to negotiate, this might become a pretty good deal for someone.

“I have a ’47-ish Willys jeep for sale. It has a Buick 225, SM420(I think), Dana 300, Dana 30 front, Dana 44 rear. The Willys needs a little work; the headlights need to be installed and wired and the cooling system needs help. The wiring is very simple, a few butt connectors and everything will light right up. I think the radiator needs to be flushed to clear a few blocked tubes, nothing major. The battery will need to be charged, but the Willys starts and runs just fine; ‘tiI it gets too hot. I have a clear AZ title that is ready to be notarized and turned over to the buyer. Because it is a 1947 vehicle no emissions are required. With a little work this Willys will be a great little machine. Let me know if you’re interested. $2700 OBO. I’m willing to negotiate a reasonable price, please reply with your phone number. Thanks, JN Crowe.”

Jim’s 1946 CJ-2A Durango, Co eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1946_cj2a_durangoJim’s selling his hot rod.  Jeeps seem to be like cats, you never real own them, only take care of them for a while.

“This is our beast, our grunt wagon, I took this heavily modified Jeep in trade on a full military M38 jeep I was selling a couple years ago thinking that I had no interest in a V8 powered Willys. Then I started driving it, and playing with it, and liking it, really liking it, it is a beast, a powerhouse, it is the grunt wagon. I’ll try to list everything that’s been modified, rebuilt, changed etc, the list is long. A little warning here, please don’t buy this rig for your teenage son, it has way too much power for someone lacking experience. I would have killed myself in this thing at that age as nearly 300 HP in a 2400lb short wheel base, lifted flat fender jeep does not have a very large margin of error. ”

1946 VEC Klamath Falls, Or SOLD

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_klamathfallsUPDATE 2: The seller and Robert agreed to a price, so Robert will be taking this nice VEC home 🙂

UPDATE: Robert provided a great link to a CJ-2A page post that discusses how bodies with driver side indents were mixed with non driver side indent bodies during assembly.

A reader named Randy pointed this jeep out to me.  This VEC has the serial #24076.  This CJ-2A has the column shift, as it should (up to #38221). However, I would expect it to also have the driver side indents (up to #29500)?

“This wonderful Very Early Civilian CJ2A is in great shape. See the pictures below. It is very solid for an unrestored 1946.  My father obtained this jeep in, I believe, 1956. I don’t know any of its history before this time. When we got it it was blue. (I’m sure it was originally forest green though, in places you can see green and the wheels were yellow. I understand that was an original color scheme.)…. A good mechanical refurbishing was done, in the late 1980s. The motor and transfer case were rebuilt. It was converted to 12v. The charging system was upgraded to 12v but the original starter was kept (it really turns over but you don’t want to crank it for a long period). A voltage reduction was used to retain the original instruments. It was again re-painted blue…..”

1948? CJ-2A Winstead, Mn $2,995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1948_cj2a_winsteadA reader named Jim forwarded this interesting CJ-2A.  The body appears in very good shape.  It sports a column shift and a PTO.  It appears to have a CJ-3B windshield. With the 3 dash panels and the column shifting, I’d guess this (or part of it) is actually a mid 1946 rather than a 1948.

1949_cj3a_tempeUPDATE: Now on eBay. Many more pics and very detailed description — if only all sellers were so precise!

This jeep looks fantastic, but I am surprised someone would do all this work and not replace the 41 rear end with a Dana 44.  Note that this is the original tub, but the tailgate has been carefully removed.

“1949 Willys CJ-2A Jeep which has been mildly customized and modified for off-road and everyday usage around town. This Jeep has been professionally done with attention to detail and function, incorporating many modern upgrades yet still keeping the period CJ-2A look. Although this Jeep has the look and capabilities for serious off-roading it has never been driven on anything but hard surfaced highways. It has been re-powered with a Chevrolet 283 small block backed by Muncie 4-speed transmission and goes like a bat-out-of-hell, but has plenty of low-end torque for any situation.”
