1946 VEC CJ-2A Boise, ID $2750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

Column shift VEC #21239 with PTO. The back driver’s side corner has been beat up a bit.

https://boise.craigslist.org/cto/d/boise-early-1946-willys-cj2a/6991503368.html

“I have too many jeep projects, so this one needs to go.

Early model Willys CJ2A that has the 3 speed on the steering column rather than on the floor. There is also the PTO shifter, but no PTO winch or other devices. The engine looks fairly original. This is a project and will need some rust removal, etc.

Clean Idaho title
I am open to trades for a car hauler or high end lead throwers, or other interesting items (no boats)”

Year? VEC? CJ-2A Chassis Hudson Valley, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $450.

This could work for someone.

cj2a-vec-chassis-ny

“This is a rolling chassis from an early CJ2A. I believe it’s early because it has a floating rear axle which was only in MB’s, GPW’s and early CJ2A’s.
The frame is RUST FREE, but it does have a quality repair done to the left front frame horn.
It’s a nice fix, just not original.
The home made front bumper is welded on but none of the frame was damaged or cut off. It could easily be brought back to stock, if desired.
Comes complete with wheels, rear draw bar, steering and everything else shown EXCEPT the trans/transfer case.
That can be left on for an additional fee.
CALLS ONLY, and not after 8pm. Text and emails will be ignored, thanks to scammers.
Located in 10588 zip. Please look it up before calling and asking “where are you located?”.”

“Got to many projects going right now-
1946 Willy’s CJ2A Column shift. Runs & drives, Brakes need going thru-
Frame is Solid, body is pretty good-some spots need attention, floors need a little attention also but are not shot- few patches and they’ll be good.

I can text a video! I drive it around the yard and up the rd(no brakes)

Machine gun mount on the crossmember up under the body!”

“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.”
