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 ….”

Unusual CJ-5 Rear Seat Mod

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features

I was on my way to Jalopy Jungle (got some new springs — but that write-up must wait) in Nampa when I passed by this CJ-5 sitting outside an auto salvage shop in Meridian.  As soon as I saw it, I made a quick u-turn and snapped some pics.  The CJ-5 itself appears in stock condition with a solid body and no engine. There was no for sale sign and am not sure what it being done to it.

The rear seat itself it something I’ve never seen.  The tail gate still works and there is storage area under the back seat.

The Commando C104

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster

A reader had asked me about the use of Inline 6s on early Jeepsters, so I found the answer on Wikipedia.  I left the page open while I went to lunch and when i came back, I noticed something I hadn’t notice earlier, a picture of the Commando C104 and it’s unusual grille.  I was used to seeing the Commando with the standard jeep/tines grille.  But, the 20,000 or so C104s that were built have a full-size grille that, at first glance, looked to me like it was borrowed from a Bronco.

Anyway, maybe you all knew this, but it was a surprise to me.  Below are some pics that show the evolution of the front of a Jeepster/Commando.

1948 2WD 4 cyl Willys Jeepster (aka VJ-2):

1949 2WD 4 & 6 cyl Willys Jeepster (aka VJ-3):

1950 2WD 4cyl & 6cyl Willys Jeepster (1951 Jeepsters are left overs from the 1950 production year).  These were also known as the VJ-3 463 (4cyl) and VJ-3 663 (6cyl) for part of the year and then the model was changed to VJ-473 (4cyl)  and VJ-673 (6cyl):

1966-1971 Kaiser Jeep’s “Jeepster Commando” Model C-101 (4wd).  There were several different models, but they all appear to have the same front as best as I can tell.

2 1972 Commando C-104s:  The top Commando has a chromed front and the bottom Commando’s front has been modified (and is for sale now).

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.”
