1946 VEC CJ-2A Palo Alto, CA **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000.

Nearly stock VEC #12683.

“I’ve owned CJ-2A serial #12683 for a couple of years, and I enjoyed it. The serial number indicates this Jeep was built in the first few weeks after the end of World War 2, making it a “VEC” (very early civilian) Jeep. I think it would be better off with someone with the time to restore it.

Overall the Jeep is in good condition considering its age: it runs and drives fine, though the brakes pull to the left; I’ve checked the adjustment of the brakes, and it seems fine, so I’d recommend disassembling the front brakes completely to see what’s going on before driving it.

***You’ll need to tow it home unless you’re my neighbor. Tow bar is included.***

My “New Civilian Jeep” California Moulder Plastic Agri-Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

I spotted this plastic jeep on a buy-it-now eBay ad, but didn’t recognize it. It looked unusual due to the spare tire placement (CJ-2-like), so I made an offer and scored it. After some research, I learned it is pretty unique.

According to Fred Coldwell (you can see his collection of these below), “in 1945 California Moulders, Inc., Los Angeles 11, California, produced plastic models of the 1944 CJ-2 jeep named the “Agrijeep”.  These first 20 CJ-2 civilian jeeps can be identified by their spare tire mounted mid-body on the passenger side, as faithfully reproduced in the plastic models below. These CJ-2 models came in a variety of colors, and the red and white and blue and white model pairs shown below have opposite colored hood, bodies, tailgates and tires. I have yet to find the complimentary models to the blue and yellow and white and green plastic CJ-2 jeeps.  These very first plastic models of “The New” Civilian Jeeps are not easy to find, but over the decades I have collected the ones shown here. Enjoy!”

Mine is all one color (I have yet to find a comparable one on the internet), but lacks the windshield. It seems like it got too hot (see the front bumper), so it’s hardly a perfect specimen. There are no markings on it, other than “39” is printed on the box; I’m unclear what that signifies (no company name on the box either).

1964-cj3b-vb-va-1 1964-cj3b-vb-va-2 1964-cj3b-vb-va-3 1964-cj3b-vb-va-4

“This 1964 Willys Jeep CJ-3B was acquired by the seller out of Wisconsin about four years ago and subsequently underwent a body-off restoration. A repaint in Steel Glow Gray Poly was carried out, and the F134 Hurricane inline-four, three-speed manual transmission, power take-off, and the two-speed transfer case were reportedly rebuilt at this time.

Features include a seven-piece canvas soft top, 16″ wheels, Warn lockable front hubs, a Hickey sidewinder winch, a ventilated pop-out windshield, black hardware, and aftermarket auxiliary gauges. A tune-up and valve adjustment were recently performed. This CJ-3B is now offered with restoration photos and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name. (more info on BaT)”

Capstan Winch Corvallis, OR $3000

• CATEGORIES: Parts

It looks like this is the CJ-2A era Capstan with a modified mount for the crankshaft (unless I”m mistaken; I’m no expert on these).

https://corvallis.craigslist.org/pts/d/halsey-willys-jeep-capstan-winch/7256821325.html

“This is a totally restored Willys Capstan Winch, made for WWII era MB and GPW Jeeps. All the parts are here and are either restored or machined new. It bolts right to the front bumper and has a drive that bolts up to the crank, so it is a “permanent” fixture on your refurbished Jeep. Unrestored winches on eBay are priced around $3,000 so that price for this one is realistic. The winch is ready to install and go. Be the first in your club to have one and don’t go 4-wheelin’ without it.”
