Year? CJ-2A Ann Arbor, Mi eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Here’s a nicely restored jeep, but I see nothing to indicate this is a ’45 or a ’46.  The serial number puts it as a ’47.  It is actually titled as a 1942.

“This example is one of the earliest CJ-2A Jeeps built by Willys in 1945. It was restored about 10 years ago. During the restoration, it was decided that this example would be painted to resemble a pre-1945 military Jeep and painted the appropriate military color with military numbering. Also, the spare tire was moved to the rear of the vehicle (military Jeeps had rear mounted spare tires, civilian Jeeps had side mounted spare tires). It should be noted that while this vehicle is a 1945, it is titled as a 1942. The VIN number is 106459 and is located on the original VIN tag on the firewall which also designates the model as a CJ 2A. The mileage indicated is approximately 21,000, however, like most vintage cars, there is no way of guaranteeing if this is original …”

1946 CJ-2A Vista, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  Sold to an excited eWillys reader!

This is the 2nd beautiful restoration from Vista I have seen.  The first one is posted here.  The seller is as meticulous regarding the description as he is on the restoration itself!

Background on VEC #14,513 – During the past seven years I have restored four 1946 CJ2A jeeps to original condition.  This jeep is by far the best and is the rarest of the four.  It also represents my last jeep restoration project.    I work at the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park and my first restoration of a CJ2A is being used in a trained animal show there every day.  I had so much fun, with this project that it got me started restoring them for fun.  #14,513 is my best restoration and I expected it to be my “keeper”.

As far as I can trace the history, except for the last year before I purchased it, when it was in Oregon, this jeep is a California native (at least for the last 50 years, when the ownership trail went cold).  It has no rust.  In the 1950’s it was owned by Phil’s Garage in Torrance, California.  It was set up to tow vehicles back to the shop.  It was impeccably maintained by the garage mechanic, who I never met, but whose workmanship and attention to detail 50 years ago, I still admire today.

This jeep has matching serial numbers on the firewall, dash and left front frame horn. Behind the column shifter, is the T-90 transmission.  The column shift option was dropped early in the first year of production (at around #30,000), because the GIs returning home from the war preferred the floor shifter transmission like the ones they were used to driving in their various theaters of operation.  For this reason, there are very few, original equipment, column shift VECs left ….”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Superior, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2200.

“OK. Here is the situation. We had this Jeep sold twice before but the buyers backed out. The reason is because we can’t find the title and the registration doesn’t match with the MVD records. The new owner would have to do an abandoned vehicle search and get a new title that way. We do not have the time to research all of this so we are willing to let it go at a cheaper price. This Jeeps blue book value is over $6000.

1946 Willy’s CJ2A Jeep. All original with added top. 6 volt system. Flathead 4-cylinder. RARE 3 speed on the column shifter. Original seat frames included. 16 in wheels. Been in the same family it’s entire life, 3rd owner in family. Spare tire. We started it a few days ago and drove it around but it does need a little TLC. More pictures available. Price is $2200.”

I was told it ran great before being parked a few years ago but I can not varify that. The picture is before power washing. The red color is mostly old paint showing. I has been painted a few times. Good Title!!”
