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.”

1945 VEC CJ2-A Eden, VT **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was  $1500

“The sale was not completed on this Jeep so it is being relisted . This is a 1945 Willys CJ2A vin#11752 I have all 5 correct data tags. This is a project or parts vehicle . The body is repairable but will need front and rear floor work. The engine does not run it has a cracked valve guide and the head was removed at some point.

The front frame on the passengers side is rusted near the crossover tube but can be repaired. This is a VEC Jeep which are very hard to find and condition dictates the price other wise it would be well over $7000.00 .

1945 VEC CJ-2A Fort Bliss, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5200.

It’s not all original, but appears solid.

“1945 Willys Jeep CJ2A for sale. Hate to lose her but Im moving overseas. She is #10170 which you can research and see as the #170th CJ2A made after WWII. I rebuilt the transmission and the motor is great. Like all CJ2As this old there is a slight drip from the transmission housing. She has been up and running great for the past 2 years, I however have not been in El Paso for the past 6 months so the battery is dead and the fuel pump will need to be primed to get running again. After extensive research, there are a few parts that are not original, windshield is from a 1948, electrical is converted to 12V from 6V and the rear axle was upgraded to the 1948 model. This is an amazing find, and I don’t want to see her go- email or text with questions.”
