1946 VEC CJ-2A Durango, Co soon on eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Jim’s giving us an early look at the VEC CJ-2A he pulled out of Crawford, Colorado.  He’s planning on listing this on eBay very soon (unless he gets a good offer before then).  He’d really like it to go to someone who will give it a good restore.

He writes:  “I pulled this CJ-2A out of Crawford Colorado.  It has an early serial number, three on the tree, tool indents, 3 piece agri dash plate, early wire steering wheel, 6 volt, very little rust, runs great, motor is super quiet.  The serial number is 17614.”

1946 CJ-2A McCall, Id eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1946_cj2a_mccallHere’s a VEC with a VIN #11325.

“This is an early 46 # 11325 ( some might call it a 45). It was a column shift and somebody put it on the floor. It has military differentals,windshield hardware, steering wheel and oil filter that says (military standard) on it.. This is a running jeep that could be put on the road. All I can see it needs to be original is a driver seat and be put back to column shift. The gas tank has had a few holes plugged, and is not leaking. The body is in good shape and has very little rot for its age as you can see in the pictures.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Goffstown, NH **SOLD*

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1945_cj2a_goffstownUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500

There’s been some body work that has obscured one of the two driver-side indents.  It still has the column shifter. It’s sort of running.

“This is a 1945 Willys CJ2A with all the matching tags. It is serial number 11752 which means it was the 1752 CJ2A made in 1945 out of a total of 1824 for that year and it is the 1752 CJ ever built. This is a project but certainly can be put back into shape. There aren’t too many of these 1945 CJ’s left around. It has the 3 speed on the column which seems to work as it should. The head and valves were pulled by the previous owner because of a broken valve guide. He said that it ran fine before. It does turn over freely and seems to have good compression and no strange noises. I believe I have all the engine parts but you know how that goes, so please plan on something missing…..”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride • TAGS: .

1946_cj2a_kemptonThere’s a good deal of junk here, but the opening bid is only $195, so maybe there’s some value.  I can see there’s the column shift parts at the very least.

1945 CJ-2A San Luis Obispo, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

1945_cj2a_sloUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

Here’s what appears to be a very restorable VEC CJ-2A.  And it runs!

“Here is a 1945 Jeep Willy’s for sale. Its been off the road for about 12 years. Stock flat head engine. The oil’s been changed and a tune up has been performed. Carb rebuild, plugs, wires, points, condensor, interstate battery. It runs but “pops” back through the intake. It drives but needs brake work. Someone left the lid off of the master cylinder for quite some time. The rust is around as you can see in the pictures, some parts are very rusty but the chassis is sound. I was planning on fixing this for the ranch I live on but I just do not have the time. Clear tiitle. I will deliver it if I get the right price for it. Can be seen 9 to5 monday through friday and weekends by appointment”

1948? CJ-2A Winstead, Mn $2,995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1948_cj2a_winsteadA reader named Jim forwarded this interesting CJ-2A.  The body appears in very good shape.  It sports a column shift and a PTO.  It appears to have a CJ-3B windshield. With the 3 dash panels and the column shifting, I’d guess this (or part of it) is actually a mid 1946 rather than a 1948.

1945 CJ-2A Huntington Beach, Ca **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Lee just bought this Jeep. Congrats!

This restoration looks beautiful, though if this is really a ’45, then I think it should have the column shifter.  It’s beautiful and I rather like the burnt (?) orange.  The one element I don’t like is the ‘all wheel drive’ plaque on both sides of the hood.  It’s also missing the rear soft-top bars holder on the driver side.

“The vehicle IS titled as a 1943 though the serial number on the vehicle matches the code for a 1945. The transmission is a 4 speed.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Hudsonville, MI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $850.

I’m guessing the pictures don’t do this jeep justice?  Only $850?  I don’t see any duct tape or baling wire, so it must be worth at least a $1000?  Definitely worth a look.

“This is a 1946 cj2a willys jeep. it runs, drives, and the brakes work. the body is in pretty rough shape. I would say that from the windshield back it is shot, but im also not a body guy. the motor runs good, smokes alot. the drivetrain is in great shape 4×4 high and low works. the frame looks very solid, i didnt notice any rusty sections. i dont want to try to fool anyone, this jeep needs some work. it is drivable as is but needs some tlc. i have too many projects and need to sell this one unfortunately. im asking 850 obo. “

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

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“This Jeep is being relisted from about 3 weeks ago. Up for sale is a 1946 Willys Jeep that I bought from an an elderly gentleman’s estate sale in February. This is a very early CJ2a that originally came with a column shift. I have not had the time to devote to rebuilding it and now I must sell it to make room for other vehicles. I got this jeep running with a basic tune up. It has a Buick 231 V6, power steering conversion and add on turn signals. This jeep does need work. The front left frame horn appears to have a slight tweak downward on the left side.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Kansas City, Mo eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

If you are looking for an early CJ-2A, this has got some good elements, including the driver’s side cutouts, the column shifter, and a heater.  The passenger side fuel hole is interesting; I don’t believe that was stock?

“This early CJ-2A has an ID number of 16741.  It is a 3 speed on the tree.  It has a clear MO title. Below is the description: Motor – Org. 4 cylinder.  Just got back from machine shop.  All four cylinders were re-sleeved.  Crank was polished.  New pistons, valves, springs, etc  Everything still in boxes as you can see by the pictures. Interior – I have no seats. Does have a roll bar.  Floor is solid, except for the “bed”. It should be cut out and fitted with new metal.   Exterior – The only rust I can see is the passage side step. Some of the Hat Channel underneath will need to be cut (maybe 3 feet)  Tailgate is orginal, but is pretty rough.  I have no windshield and I don’t believe the hood is org. because there is no Willys stamped on it.”
