1945? VEC CJ-2A Laguna Hills, CA $7000


This has the tool indents, column shift, and the squared bolts for the bow holders, but lacks the full floaters it should have if it is a ’45. Maybe the rear end was replaced?

1947? VEC? CJ-2A San Diego, CA $3500


This appears to have an early tub.

“Calling all Vintage Jeep Lovers! This one is a project for just the right person. This vintage jeep was in the process of being redone when the owner died suddenly. The body, transmission, and engine are surprisingly sound. The owner had taken many parts off and had obtained replacements including seats, and electrical wiring, but unfortunately was unable to finish the project. As you can see in the photo, it includes a front tow bar. Again, its a project but great when done! ”

1945? CJ-2A & 1953 CJ-3A Minneapolis, MN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Make Offer.

The 2A appears to be a VEC, but it looks more like a ’46.

“1945 & 53 Willy’s Jeeps For Sale / B.O. for both. (No splitting them up).
1945 is the one with the top/plow and is pretty much complete. The other is the 53, this one is pretty much a parts unit. Both Jeep’s need lots of work, but if you’re a Jeep fanatic they are diamonds in the ruff. Both are extremely hard to find, so no lowballing. . . ”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Santa Rosa, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3900

The body is rough.

“This is a very early Civilian Jeep aka CJ 2A aka “Agro Jeep”. These early Jeeps still had the ax and shovel imprints on the driver side panel.
Originally it had the 3 speed column shift levers but sometime later on, this one had the shift tower replaced with the 3 speed shift cane. The transmission still has the linkage levers for the column shift.
This Jeep was used primarily as a Hunting Jeep/ Ranch Jeep. We cleaned her up and replaced the engine with a more period correct block. The replacement engine was not rebuilt but it checked out good and it runs great.
The brakes were also replaced and the most evident leaks were repaired.
Jeep drives good. It still needs some basic up keep but it’s a good runner / driver.
No title but all of the Data Plates are there. I will help with obtaining a title.”
