“Early production, according to some JEEP experts, this has early engine block, both good rears, locking hubs, god gauges , has oval pad behind oil filter, and 3 speed standard trans on column, we almost had engine running, we lost spark when rotor fell apart, decent frame, poor tub, and no title, and I cant find any tags on the body or frame, there is a number on the engine. and it was a funky green under the crappy brown that it is now.
No paperwork, repeat no paperwork, I am willing to lick my wounds after a dip in lake stupid for buying this thing at 1500, 1100 is the price.
This Jeep is in Bangor Pennsylvania, yes Bangor Pennsylvania, and its an hour from where I live, so not running around and meeting at 9 pm for a looky loo, if you are interested, I am more than happy to answer questions, and meet to sell it to you, if you can find one for 200 please buy it, or even 300 go for it.
If you don’t like the price you can buy it for 100 at my estate sale when im dead, cause buying crap like this is gonna kill me. No longer collecting cars or projects, not interested in trades of any kind, or crypto currency, or motorcycles, or dune buggys, or tools.”

Has some floor patches.

vec-cj2a-body-kitsap

“CJ2 body tub with Ax and Shovel indents like the WWII Willys MB or Ford GPW; AND it has the tailgate in the back like the CJ2A’s. It is in restore-able condition. All the body fabrications/sub-assemblies are readily available on line. Not the greatest shape; but rare enough that it is worth restoring over the standard CJ2A body. Will fit in a full size pickup.

This tub could always be fitted with the gadgets to carry the Ax and Shovel – all the gadgets, straps, and even ax and shovel are available on line. It probably wouldn’t be stock to do this but it would be cool!

Asking $550. Would consider trading for other early flat fender parts. ”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Lynchburg, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5200.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this one. Looks like a good price.

“restoration. The engine and transmission were rebuilt and the frame sand blasted and painted. Since I have owned it for the last 5 years I have also rebuilt the steering box and linkage along with various other fixes. The tires are only a few years old and have plenty of life left. The carburetor has been rebuilt as well.
While doing the drive train rebuild I brought this jeep back to a column shift which it was originally. I drive this jeep all the time and it has been tremendous fun. Only reason for selling is that I have another one and do not have room for two.”

“I am selling a 1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A that we’ve owned for 20 years. It is in really good condition for its age with some normal rust under the floorboards which have been repaired. It has a 4 cylinder Willys engine which runs really good. The clutch works great and the 3 speed transmission and transfer case shifts very well. The brakes work as they should. There is some play in the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself is not original as it was replaced by my husband so he could fit in the driver seat! Electrical was converted to 12 volts. The tires are like new and the seats were reupholstered and have no tears in them. It comes with a 6000# Ramsey electric winch with a wired remote control. It also has a tow bar which is included.
Some issues: there is a small oil leak at the rear differential bearing shaft, the passenger side windshield is cracked, the odometer and the fuel gauge are not working and there are some minor electrical issues with the lights.
If you are familiar with the 1946 Willys, you know that it is a good investment if you decide to have it fully restored. For information, the NADAguides list it at $7,450 for Low Retail, $19,100 for Average Retail and $33,400 for High Retail.
I am asking $7,950.00 or best offer. CASH only. Serious inquiries only please.”

“First generation of mass produced consumer Jeeps/Willys. This is a project vehicle. It currently has a Buick v6 swap in it (super common, it’s what jeep used from the factory in the 60’s and gives a substantial power upgraded from the sluggish 60hp inline 4). I’m not sure if it runs or not, never got around to testing it. Dried coolant around one of the heads leads me to believe it will need a rebuild. Odometer reads around 50k miles, not sure when the swap was completed though. Rust is minimal considering the vehicles age. The worst in the standard spots under the driver seat and near the side rails. Body’s straight, shows no signs of ever being in an accident. Clean title in hand.”
