“I have a collection of 1946 VEC CJ2A Jeep parts for restoration or just parts. I was going to restore this but I have an aircraft restoration project that is more demanding of my time.

Parts include: Rolling chassis, (full floating rear axle), with tub, 5 mounted like new 600×16 military NDT tires, engine, transmission/transfer case, radiator, rear driveshaft, drivers seat frame, non-VEC windshield frame, tailgate, hood, front fenders and grill.

Couldn’t find an engine id number in the usual two places/pads but the cylinder head is the early smooth top design. The engine turns over with a wrench and the crank pulley nut looks correct for a VEC.

There is the usual rust in the floors, toolbox and hat channels.”

“1946 Willys Jeep 4×4, incomplete, no paperwork, no title, I mistakenly paid 1500 for this and now willing to lick my wounds after a dip in lake stupid. I was told this is a 1946 as it is a 3 speed on the column, and has the two sticks on the transmission.
Lets be clear, I do not need a lesson on values, on what it takes to re-do a Willys, to be honest I don’t need anymore lessons on anything.
What you see is what you get, there is no secret stash of New Old Stock parts that I am squirreling away.
We almost had it running, lost spark and interest when the rotor fell apart, engine block is good, turns over no problem, and is very complete, was told early block as it has an “oval pad” behind the oil filler.
Has locking hubs, and a pretty decent frame, not trying to be rude in my description, oh well sorry my wife doesn’t like me either, so ill get over it. Its like a 1947 1948, and maybe a 1949
Happy to answer any questions that I have not covered, and this is located in BANGOR PENNSYLVANIA 18013
if that’s not in your Gas Monkey wheel house to get to that’s ok too.
God Bless, and have a wonderful day.”

“Selling my project 46 cj2a. I was planning on restoring it and building it but plans have changed. It has a dauntless v6, 3 speed trans, twin sticks, reupholstered seats, original data plates which are hard to find, and a fairly rust free body. No rust holes! The hood and fenders are taken off at the moment but I can put them back on if need be. It is a project, but it runs, drives and stops and all gauges work accurately.

Needs paint, body work, probably a little more tuning with the carb, and wiring for the lights. I can finish the body work and paint but we would have to work out a price. Overall is a really cool little project. Not firm so send in some offers or trades! Serious inquires only, no low ballers please. Possible delivery, I have it on the trailer already”
