1945 VEC CJ-2A Concord, CA $3800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is an unusual item. Check out the adapter added to the rear of the intermediate transfercase shaft. Anyone recognize what that is? Also, if the engine really is cast aluminum, than this is a good deal all around. The seller also has a 1946 CJ-2A for sale ($9000), but I didn’t see an ad for it.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4800.

The serial number suggests this is a 1945, but it should have full floaters.

1945-vec-cj2a-napa-ca

“Back on the “Interwebs” due to Craigslist Flakes! Up for sale “Farm Fresh” Willys CJ2A “Flat Fender” Jeep. This is a very early, rust free, jeep. This is the first civilian production run of the famous CJ Jeep. The Jeep is a very low production number. The Jeep has a Buick V6 Dauntless motor (runs), dual exhaust, dual fuel tanks, headers, neat spare tire carrier, Dualmatic front hubs, Chevy tilt steering wheel. Jeep sold with a T90 transmission, but does not have a transfer case. The transmission and transfer case was pulled by the previous owner. This wouldn’t take much to get back on the trail. I have the original title and every repair receipt that was ever done to this jeep. This rig would be great for a full restoration, a vintage rock crawler, hunting rig, trail jeep, or summer grocery getter.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Owensville, IN *SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2600.

(04/08/2021) This seems to be a pretty stock VEC, which is why the lack of bow holders surprises me. This is one of several CJ-2As that makes me wonder if it was possible to get a CJ-2A without bow holders on the side.

“If this ad is still up it’s still for sale. 1946 Willys VEC CJ2A #22085 has tool indents, still column shift, eay air cleaner, correct generator w/cast iron pulley, early smooth cyl head. Has all body & frame tags, clean title in my name. Motor is stuck (soaking with MMO currently). Trans & tcase shift & steering steers. Sheetmetal needs some love but imo is salvageable.”

1945? VEC CJ-2A Fire Jeep Berkey, OH Sealed Bid

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Jerry Huber confirmed that this is a 1945 VEC CJ-2A, serial number #11822. Jerry added, “That would place the body at the end of the 1945 production run. The Fire Dept. documents that they got it in the spring or summer of 1946, which is still possible with the time for the Darley Fire Conversion. There is also a story that the vehicle had a frame failure shortly after they got it from Darley and it was returned to the Willys Plant in Toledo where the frame was replaced with a heavier duty and reinforced unit. I have heard that story before but can’t verify although some one with more history on the unit may be able to confirm.”

==================

Originally posted Mar 2, 2021: Listed as a 1947, this is likely a 1945 VEC CJ-2A. It’s got rear hubs, indents, early windshield, a column shift and (I think) the earliest “WILLYS” data plate. Bidding is allowed from March 1, 2021, though April 02, 2021.
