1946 VEC CJ-2A Northern WI $2500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/12/2016) Pics posted.

“Early 1946 Willys Cj2a that runs, drives, and stops. The body is original and has been patched over the years. Rare column shift (3 on the tree) transmission. Engine could use rings as it smokes/burns oil but has lots of power. A perfect winter rebuild project! One tire has a slow leak but all are matching and like new. I plan on getting the leak repaired..”

UPDATE: Price starts at $3900

(12/08/2015) Needs a little work.

the good:
new fuel tank

Buick v6 motor
power steering
frame boxed in the front
trailer hitch receiver
tow bar
bikini top
stock seats in good shape

the bad:
needs new motor mounts ($170 for the good ones)

this would be a great jeep for cruising around or taking out to the desert. that was my plans for it but I bought a manx buggy and I can’t take both at the same time. clean tittle in my name and it on non op so no back fees.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Sikeston, MO **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500

This has the early windshield, but no column shift.

“I have a 1946 cj2a for sale that is serial number 15192. All three tags are 15192. The tool box floor has been rusted out and patched, the hat channels are rusted out. The side steps are rusted. The frame seems to be okay except in the front where the crossover tube meets the frame it has a crack. The tub has the tool indents on the drivers side. It has one of the three data tags on the dash. You can see where the other two were. It does have two good seats. The windshield frame seems to be early with the square washers and in good shape. The transmission is a side shifter converted to tower shift. The engine seems to be a transitional cj2a engine. It does run and drive, engine in good shape. Did a compression check and all four cylinders were right at 120. I have installed a new fuel pump, points, condenser, rotor and plugs. No brakes. I drive it about every day. No title. Asking $2500 / OBO for it.”

1945? VEC CJ-2A Santa Rosa, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7950

Appears solid. Some more pics would be useful.

“Willy’s Jeep CJ2A 1945/46
One of just a few Willy’s Jeep CJ2A with a transmission of three on the tree column shift. I have had this Jeep for over 4 years, love it but unable to spend any time restoring it to it’s original glory. This
Jeep is stock and has most original parts. Lights work, gauges work, seats are in good condition with no rips. If you are mechanical and can put sometime in to restoring this gem, I have seen them listed for over $30k fully restored. The reason I put 1945/46 down for the year, is because the vin number of
11433 falls in to the year of 1945, vin’s 1001 – 11824. So, the vin number puts the Jeep in to the year of 1945, yet it’s written on the Title as a 1946 Jeep. Go figure? I bought the Jeep in 2011 from a CHP
Motorcycle Policeman who kept on his farm south of San Jose. Like I said, I bought the Jeep as an
investment because of it’s unique one of a kind transmissions, 3 speed column shift. I’m not going to waste my time with tire kickers, so serious inquiries only please.”
