1946 VEC CJ-2A Princeton, IN $1800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

It’s an early roller.

https://evansville.craigslist.org/pts/d/princeton-1946-willys-vec-cj2a-jeep/7067938356.html

“Very Early Civilian model CJ2A. If this ad is still up it’s still for sale. Ser#18711, ’46 column shift. The frame, drivetrain, and body have been primered. This jeep does not have an engine. The body has had some bad spots cut out and patch panels made. The panels fit great but are not welded in. You can weld in these panels, or buy reproductions and use them depending on how precise of a restoration you want to do. This is a great restoration candidate, still has the column shifter and transmission. I do have other parts available for this project.”

Year? FC-150 Youngsville, NC $2000

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2000.

Chris stopped to see this FC (equipped with a rear PTO and gearbox) and provided the following review:

“I looked at this today (12/27/19):
– The floors are rotting through.
– The drawbar is welded on.
– Some exterior parts are missing from the cab.
– Strangely has FC170 nameplates on the cab corners but it is definitely a wide-track FC150 with the F-134.
– Lots of body repairs with riveted panels
– No title, no governor, no bed, no other parts except what you see.
– The PTO was obviously added later as the shifter is outside the cab.
– The transfer case shift levers are all missing (mount is still there).
-Gentleman selling says it has not ran in probably 10 years but that he used to use it to mow a field.”

“This is a Forward Control Jeep turned into a tractor. It has beefed up springs, a rear Power Take-Off with an agri splined shaft, and an electric fan to enhance cooling at slow speeds. Has not run in years, tires are shot. Would make a great enclosed cab mower, or could be fitted with a backhoe.”

This M-38A1 looks in good shape.

http://www.warjeeps.com/mjs/sale20/adm023/adm023.html

1954-m38a1-winder-ga

“Lots of work done, good driver/parade truck. This is my client’s Jeep and I’ve done 99.9% of the work to it since he acquired it. He is moving in a different direction in the hobby and is putting the Jeep up for sale and since I’ve done all the work for the last 4+ years, I’m helping him sell it.

Details: Currently registered and tagged in Georgia, current owner has the title from the prior owner in Florida (Georgia will not title anything built prior to 1963). Located in Winder, Ga. Vehicle has recently been serviced with new oil and filter, all fluids checked, all zerks greased, etc. All systems on vehicle function as they should: Engine, drivetrain, 4wd, gauges, lights, parking brake, etc.

Condition: Vehicle is in very good driver or parade duty condition. Sheetmetal is above average, but not perfect. Both front fenders were wrinkled at some point and straightened. They are acceptable in their current condition but a new owner looking for show quality perfection will probably want to replace them. Tub corners, rockers, cowl and rear panel are excellent. Vehicle had a replacement floor pan installed at some point and the job was done competently. Rear panel is straight and has never had a tailgate cut in. Windshield is correct M-series Jeep (it’s an M170 ambulance Jeep model, but it’s identical to M38A1 other than two small brackets on top for stretchers) and has new glass and weatherstripping. Vehicle retains all of its original 24V system (25A generator, external regulator, blackout lights, etc.). Most of the wiring is new and retains the original Douglas connectors. The paint is older and a few spots have been touched up but overall it’s a clean and presentable vehicle. Vehicles runs very well, will maintain 50mph, transmission doesn’t pop out of 2nd gear like so many T90s, transfer works like it should, etc. Carburetor is the correct Carter YS950, etc.

“46 cj2a serial #78498. Original color was “Picket Gray” with “Luzon Red” wheels, although the wheels have been painted black and the body has been many colors including the ultra-atractive traffic-cone-orange rattle-can coating it now wears.
This is a perfect entry level/starter jeep. This body is in really good shape. I play with these old jeeps quite a bit, and see a lot of them. This body is in better shape than most of them you see in this part of the country. Sheet metal is all original, no patches or modifications, bubba hasn’t screwed this one up. This is an excellent candidate for serious restoration. Theres still some body work is needed, the toolbox floor needs repair but is still in it (most of them are completely gone), theres one hole in passenger floorboard (above hat channel), and one under driver’s seat/fuel tank location. The engine turns over by hand, and I can source a transmission/ transfer case for added cost if needed.
Frame tag and body ser# tag match, acm is #69097. This is a good, solid jeep for someone to invest a little time into and enjoy. $1800/make offer. Thanks for looking.”

Couldn’t find an engine id number in the usual two places/pads but the cylinder head is the early smooth top design. The engine turns over with a wrench and the crank pulley nut looks correct for a VEC.
