It’s very rough, but does appear to have a VEC windshield.

“I have a 40’s model Willys CJ-2A. I purchased it a couple months back and ended up buying another Jeep last week that I am going to use instead of this one. Jeep is complete minus tailgate, seats, and a carb. Was told it ran from previous owner. No title but a title can be had by filing antique with SCDMV. Jeep has rust in floors and the tub. It is repairable. Frame is good. All original drivetrain is in tact.”

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. . . ”
