Year? VEC? CJ-2A Chassis Hudson Valley, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $450.

This could work for someone.


“This is a rolling chassis from an early CJ2A. I believe it’s early because it has a floating rear axle which was only in MB’s, GPW’s and early CJ2A’s.
The frame is RUST FREE, but it does have a quality repair done to the left front frame horn.
It’s a nice fix, just not original.
The home made front bumper is welded on but none of the frame was damaged or cut off. It could easily be brought back to stock, if desired.
Comes complete with wheels, rear draw bar, steering and everything else shown EXCEPT the trans/transfer case.
That can be left on for an additional fee.
CALLS ONLY, and not after 8pm. Text and emails will be ignored, thanks to scammers.
Located in 10588 zip. Please look it up before calling and asking “where are you located?”.”

“Got to many projects going right now-
1946 Willy’s CJ2A Column shift. Runs & drives, Brakes need going thru-
Frame is Solid, body is pretty good-some spots need attention, floors need a little attention also but are not shot- few patches and they’ll be good.
Turn key and the Go Devil Flat Head starts right up! Has been converted to 12V. But not molested-
I can text a video! I drive it around the yard and up the rd(no brakes)

Looking to see what’s out there for trades- this is valued at around $4000 as it sits- most Column shift Willy’s are in private collections or museums. & this is a VEC has Military tool slots, column shift, square washers, many GPW marked parts. Machine gun mount on the crossmember up under the body!”

“Early production, according to some JEEP experts, this has early engine block, both good rears, locking hubs, god gauges , has oval pad behind oil filter, and 3 speed standard trans on column, we almost had engine running, we lost spark when rotor fell apart, decent frame, poor tub, and no title, and I cant find any tags on the body or frame, there is a number on the engine. and it was a funky green under the crappy brown that it is now.
No paperwork, repeat no paperwork, I am willing to lick my wounds after a dip in lake stupid for buying this thing at 1500, 1100 is the price.
This Jeep is in Bangor Pennsylvania, yes Bangor Pennsylvania, and its an hour from where I live, so not running around and meeting at 9 pm for a looky loo, if you are interested, I am more than happy to answer questions, and meet to sell it to you, if you can find one for 200 please buy it, or even 300 go for it.
If you don’t like the price you can buy it for 100 at my estate sale when im dead, cause buying crap like this is gonna kill me. No longer collecting cars or projects, not interested in trades of any kind, or crypto currency, or motorcycles, or dune buggys, or tools.”

Needs paint at the very least.

I knew the prior owner and he owned it almost before I was born and I’m in my 60’s.”

VEC CJ-2A Body Bainbridge Island, WA $550

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts • TAGS: .

Has some floor patches.


“CJ2 body tub with Ax and Shovel indents like the WWII Willys MB or Ford GPW; AND it has the tailgate in the back like the CJ2A’s. It is in restore-able condition. All the body fabrications/sub-assemblies are readily available on line. Not the greatest shape; but rare enough that it is worth restoring over the standard CJ2A body. Will fit in a full size pickup.

This tub could always be fitted with the gadgets to carry the Ax and Shovel – all the gadgets, straps, and even ax and shovel are available on line. It probably wouldn’t be stock to do this but it would be cool!

Asking $550. Would consider trading for other early flat fender parts. ”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Lynchburg, VA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5200.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this one. Looks like a good price.

“restoration. The engine and transmission were rebuilt and the frame sand blasted and painted. Since I have owned it for the last 5 years I have also rebuilt the steering box and linkage along with various other fixes. The tires are only a few years old and have plenty of life left. The carburetor has been rebuilt as well.
While doing the drive train rebuild I brought this jeep back to a column shift which it was originally. I drive this jeep all the time and it has been tremendous fun. Only reason for selling is that I have another one and do not have room for two.”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Turon, OK $7950


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/02/2018) Has some interesting hubs (Sears-branded Dualmatics?). Might be a VEC. Just say NO to NADA vis-a-vis Willys.

1946-cj2a-vec-turon-ok1 1946-cj2a-vec-turon-ok2 1946-cj2a-vec-turon-ok3 1946-cj2a-vec-turon-ok4

“I am selling a 1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A that we’ve owned for 20 years. It is in really good condition for its age with some normal rust under the floorboards which have been repaired. It has a 4 cylinder Willys engine which runs really good. The clutch works great and the 3 speed transmission and transfer case shifts very well. The brakes work as they should. There is some play in the steering wheel. The steering wheel itself is not original as it was replaced by my husband so he could fit in the driver seat! Electrical was converted to 12 volts. The tires are like new and the seats were reupholstered and have no tears in them. It comes with a 6000# Ramsey electric winch with a wired remote control. It also has a tow bar which is included.
Some issues: there is a small oil leak at the rear differential bearing shaft, the passenger side windshield is cracked, the odometer and the fuel gauge are not working and there are some minor electrical issues with the lights.
If you are familiar with the 1946 Willys, you know that it is a good investment if you decide to have it fully restored. For information, the NADAguides list it at $7,450 for Low Retail, $19,100 for Average Retail and $33,400 for High Retail.
I am asking $7,950.00 or best offer. CASH only. Serious inquiries only please.”
