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 “.”

1946 CJ-2A Le Claire, Wi **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“1946 Willys CJ2A in original almost rustfree condition, there is slight surface rust on the under body and one spot of rust on a hat channel at one of the mounting bolts. The inner windshield has rust around the glass area and probably could be replaced. The body itself has normal farm use dents and dings but nothing serious and would be a easy restoration, the area around the side holes are probably the worst they had a rubber cover bolted to both of them see picture, I have had it about 20 years and enjoyed it as is. Mechanically it runs great and everything works, including the originak key coil switch, has normal leaks at some of the seals. The brake lines wheel cylinders and master cylinder have all been replaced. The seats have powder coated frames and replacement cushions covered with vynil, the rear seat is a reproduction. Original seat pans springs and coverings go with the Willys. Wheels are powder coated with white vynil strpes and almost new non directional tires. I believe the Willys a has about 29,000 miles as it has on the speedometer. The wireharness could stand replacing, horn button doesn’t work but the horn does, windshied glass is a litttle scratched. The Willys comes with a complete all original Monroe three point hitch with a motor mounted hydraulic pump not installed.PTO with rear gear box and farm belt pulley and governor,V belt pulley for generator or welder, belt driven buss saw I believe it’s a Newgren and a peson that has a Newgren saws the brass tag is right. Front bumper weight, complete operational Linkbelt capstan winch with most original parts, rope roller assy is a reproduction and winch drive bracket is fabricated from steel and works well. Also has original owners manual, chaff screen, and complete set of top bows.”

WWII Braden J2-134 Capstan Winch **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Josh is auctioning this nicely restored Capstan Winch on eBay.

He writes, “You are bidding on a WW2 BRADEN J2-134 CAPSTAN WINCH for the WW2 Ford GPW, GPA, Willys MB and Weasel.     This auction is for the head unit as pictured and the Portrayal Press Capstan Winch manual. The winch is the correct war period model with the four cap screws in the head.  The winch has been been sandblasted, cleaned, and painted with TM9 Ordnance Red oxide epoxy primer and TM9 lusterless Olive Drab shade #6. In the preservation of this winch I did create a custom gasket for the oil sump and will include the broken original with the sale. I also fabricated a new top cover and will also include the damage original.  As you can see in the pictures the gears all look fantastic and the winch turns easily and smoothly as it should. All oil pan bolts are marked RA. The only negative things I can say about the winch are that the oil pan has a couple of dents (they could be worked out) and the area around the bottom drain plug has been brazed at one time. The drain plug does still function and the repair doesn’t appear to leak. Both of these imperfections will not easily be visible when mounted.”

1951 CJ-3A Chelan, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $250.  

Not a whole lot of value left on this CJ.

“Basically, I have a completely unrestored, and non running CJ. Early willys. CJ2a windshield. A little cancer, all parts are there. Flat fendres, grill tail gate, original axles, tranny/tcase. Ford motor, disassembled at the heads, probably not even rebuild able.

I’ve had guys come look at this expecting more. When I say it needs a restoration I mean it. This is not a parts gold mine… Its old, its rusty and incomplete. Best used as parts, have panels taken from it, etc. I was going to take a Cherokee, and salvage all the parts from it to put into the Willys, but whatever you guys want. Its cheap enough, and price is negotiable it needs to move in 3 weeks or else it his the scrap yard.  And yes the Capstan winch is GONE; no title”
