1946 VEC CJ-2A Wimberly, TX $7500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.

(07/04/2020) This VEC lacks indents and a column shift.

https://austin.craigslist.org/cto/d/wimberley-1946-willys-jeep-cj2a/7186106719.html

“1946 Willys Cj2A. Very good condition, especially for being 74 years old she’s less wore out than me. I’ve had her a couple of years and have put on a new electronic distributor, full suspension, shocks and springs, Rugged Ridge front lockers, fuel pump, fuel gauge sender, spare tire, Hi Lift jack, bimini top, 130 c.i. “Go Devil” engine, tires in good condition. Starts and runs great! After WWII when the boys came home they wanted a Jeep like they had over seas. Here it is.

All new parts are from Kaiser Willys parts and accessories. Very few scratches and dents. The only rust is under the passenger seat in the built in tool box bottom that can catch and hold water.

If you are looking for a way restorable old Jeep this is a good way to go. If you call, please leave a message I don’t answer unknown numbers but will call you back. Please no lowballs or trades. And yes, the VIN is 27236!”
