1946 VEC? CJ-2A Newbury, NH **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

Check out where the driver’s side drain hole is.  It is floating an inch or two higher than it ought to be.  So, there’s been some strange work done on that side.  It also looks like this had the tool indents on the body.  This does have a column shift and the three data plate setup.

“This auction is for an amazing 1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep.  This is truely an amazing original old jeep that needs a new home.

The motor runs strong and smooth.  The three speed “on the tree” column shift manual transmission shifts smooth and easy.  It is clear that this jeep was not abused on the farm, like most were.  I bought the jeep at the beginning of the summer and have put alot of work into it.  The body was in great condition for the year!  I did patch the floor in a few spots, but it is mostly original.  The body was worked over, and the new paint shines great!  The wiring was gone-through, and the lights and gauges work.  The seats were reupholstered, and look great.  This is a nice old flat fender jeep that gets some looks.  It does need a set of tires.  The ones on it now hold air, but are not road worthy.

This CJ will be stored in my climate controlled garage until the completion of the auction.  It will be sold with a bill of sale, and an old registration.  The state of New Hampshire does not require a title on vehicles that are considered antiques. ”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Ft. Benning, Ga $3500

Serial number 15777.

“Up for grabs is my 1946 Willys CJ2A. Serial Number 15777. This is one of the few three on the tree Column Shift models that was made. All of the major components are original and the serial number on the frame and tub match. The only modifications that have been made are the aftermarket oil filter, fuel pump, 12V alternator, and the front brake drums were changed to Ford 9″ using a conversion kit. This Willys runs and drives. I just installed a new fuel tank and I recently had the floor boards replaced. There are a few things that need to be addressed. The rear drive shaft is removed right now; the speedometer cable needs to be replaced. One front headlight and bezel need to be replaced. 713-252-7864”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Cortland, NY $2600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

This looks like a good price.

“For sale: 1946 Willys column shift jeep. Runs and stops, just needs finishing. Comes with working rear PTO.
This was going to be a long term project for me, but circumstances have changed and now I am forced to sell. This particular jeep is rare due to the column shift and the fact that is still have the rear mounted PTO.

Most everything works but the emergency brake needs to be adjusted and the dash light needs to be hooked up. I removed the car seats that were in it and have found some original CJ2A seat frames for it. It does have some old turn signals on it but they do not work, nor do they need to to have it inspected..
The green jeep shown in the pics is NOT for sale.

Please, no scammers or tire kickers, I know what this jeep is worth, and know what I am asking for it is fair. A very rare jeep that will make a very good project for someone.

Thanks for your consideration.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Wynnewood, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $39,000

This isn’t your every day restoration.  It won the prestigious Grand National Senior Award, from the Antique Automobile Club of America, and is the only known jeep ever to achieve this distinction.  Also, the seller is aware the price is above the normal price of the average restored jeep (so any comments apart that are not price related would be appreciated).

1946 Willys CJ-2A with rare column shift, PTO, full eight-piece canvas top,  all mechanical components new or rebuilt, meticulously restored to factory-fresh condition. AACA Grand National Senior Award, a perfect museum-quality specimen without peer. Over $45K invested. Price: $39,000.

This jeep is full of nostalgia and meaning for me. It’s similar to the jeep my grandfather bought new in Philadelphia after World War II and kept at his summer place in Maine. In the summer of 1959, when I was nine, he let me drive it up his long driveway to fetch the mail and over the blueberry fields. When he sold his place two years later, the jeep, alas, was put up for sale as well. Over the years, I’ve tried to find that exact jeep, so far in vain.

1946 VEC CJ-2A Bayview, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

Looks interesting.

“RARE FACTORY ORIGINAL uncut 1946 Agrijeep. It is faded, has some dents, sat in the sun, and is not running. Has all the correct original Willys brass plates. Is equiped with an original Willys ( Not Reproduction ) power take off on the rear and an original Willys Capstan winch with the original four bolt roller. The jeep is a barn find. I have the 1960 registration and will give a bill of sale for the vehicle. It has a 1946 winshield which is not the original windshield, but is correct for the jeep, it has a broken glass pane. The original three speed on the column was replaced with a four speed on the floor – it still has the column shifter. The jeep is well used but all original, it was found in a walnut orchard with aprox 30,000 ( on the odometer ) miles. It is complete – it is all there, but I do not know the condition of the engine / transmission. The tires are very faded and sun cracked – the tires appear to be the original tires from 1946. There are some additional parts that go with it, canvas top, doors, etc. I researched this jeep, a jeep like this sold on Ebay for $7,900

I know how much the original jeep accessories are worth ( I have researched the value of the PTO and Capstan Winch – a reproduction winch is $3,250 if you can find one. ) I have looked all over the internet and have not found another original Agrijeep anywhere at any price, other than the one mentioned above – There are plenty of STANDARD 1946 jeeps, most have been modified or cut up a lot. This is a very original and very rare Agrijeep. You won’t find another one.

I was offered $2500 for the original Capstan Winch and $1500 for the PTO. I am asking $4,000 for the jeep and accessories, the price is firm. I have taxes to pay, so have to sell the jeep, otherwise I would keep it. The jeep is sold ” as is, where is “.”

This is a column shift.  It’s had some body work done.

“This is 46 willys column shift…too.engine stamped GPW
It starts and runs very smooth and quiet
Needs clutch and possibly brake work.
It does not move on its own (clutch)
Alot of body panel work done…could be better but not too bad
frame great except for area in front…plow was mounted and did some damage…repairable.
Its a great start to a rare Willys but I am certain it will just sit in my barn for 20 years.”

Somebody likes painting with purple (or indigo or violet … you be the color judge).

“This is a 1946 cj2a. It is considered an “early” model with a vin 19,xxx. It has a title. It has an “F” head motor from a later model which is a little bit taller and so there is a hood scoop to accomidate the carb. It runs good and has a solid body that has been patched up. The only issue is it needs a new clutch assembly($125) oh yeah and its painted purple.”
