1945 VEC CJ-2A Rainier, OR $15,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/10/2023) John shared this early CJ-2A. It’s had a few updates, but the indents and column shift are still there. There has been some body work (such as the elimination of the spare tire carrier mounting holes), along with new paint. If the underside on this is solid, it may well be worth a look at this price. I don’t impinge it would take too much to bring this back to stock.

“1945 Willys Jeep CJ-2A
All original except back bumper and top.
Original miles 45,640.
VIN# 10335.

1946? VEC? CJ-2A Lakeland, FL $3000


Listed as a 1948, this has a column shifter. Looking at the interior pic of the left side, this might have had indents that were filled in. Unclear how much value is here given the engine issue and body rust.

VEC CJ-2A W/ “Wagon” Hardtop Added

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Wood bodies • TAGS: , .

I found this photo on eBay. It shows a VEC CJ-2A with a wood-based hardtop. The back of the photograph suggests that the builder of the hardtop may have been manufacturing these for sale for $265. The seller of these called them Jeep Station Wagon Bodies and built at least one of them (as shown in the picture). It appears these were built in or near San Francisco. There was another manufacturer who built similar tops out of Cleveland, Ohio, and advertised them as Station Wagon Bodies.
