1946 VEC CJ-2A Project Lake Tahoe, CA $2000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

Has potential. Seller does not want to ship.

“1946 CJ2A with Chevy 265 bored to 289, 2 barrel carb. Has not worked since 1991. In its day it had gone through the Rubicon several times. Needs much work, understatement.
Look forward to hearing from you BUT not the people who ask me to save it for you , will send more money than its worth, need it shipped across the country, can’t communicate because your in another country and do not know the basics of english. You people can take a long walk off a sort pier but you probably do not understand what I just typed, Right!
This jeep has a old history in south shore. Our family would love to see it on the road again.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Sparta, MI $1200

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

It’s a got tool indents.

“1946 Willys CJ2A. This is an early 2A with the tool indentations still on the drivers side. This one would have been a column shift. It has everything except for drivetrain and seats. I bought this willys with a Chevy 153 in it and drove great so I know the axles and all that are good. I was going to put a small block chevy into it but never got around it. The body has been repaired in a number of spots. Most of the floor is new steel. This would be a great offroad wheeling project for the winter.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $10,000

(05/09/2017) Craig spotted this nice looking VEC.

“1946 Willys CJ-2A very early civilian column shift VIN 28537
CJ2A
VEC Jeep
Civilian model, not military MB WWII Jeep
Completely rebuilt in 2010, including new body (tub costs over $2000 alone without hood, front fenders, grill, windshield frame, etc.), rebuilt engine (new pistons, rings, water pump, oil pump, etc.), transmission, transfer case and axles – like getting a “new” 1946 Jeep for much less than it would cost you to buy the parts and pay the labor to build it – and, to top it off, it is a coveted VEC model, too! Nice enough that you could run it in a parade or take it to a show, but not so nice that you’d be afraid of using it!
94,703 miles.
Pennsylvania antique registration.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Winona, MN $3650

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3650.

(06/13/2017) Here’s an early jeep. It’s been converted to a floor shift, but the original steering column appears to be there.

http://www.sellajeep.com/mjs/sale17/adm319/adm319.html

1945-vec-cj2a-winona-mn

“If you’re looking for a true American icon that is in very restorable condition this could be for you. The Willys CJ2A “Jeep” was the first jeep made available to the public in numbers after it became the vehicle so widely loved by the allies during WWII. The 1945 model is the first born of the civilian jeep family and began the civilian lineage for ALL the jeeps that followed. There were 1824 units produced for the 1945 model year. It appears as though there are 40+ units registered in the “CJ2A Page” webpage forum so it is a very rare beast. This one was originally pasture green. The body tub and tailgate ACM #’s are 2122.

The body and frame tags are in the correct positions so I assume them to be correct. The engine S/N is 11725-B. It runs well. Compression runs from a high of 88 psi on #3 to 70 psi on #2. Oil pressure is 20 psi at idle to 40+. The original column shift linkage is gone but the transmission still retains the side shift attachment points. I do have the correct, restorable transmission, column and transfer case with E-brake to return this Jeep to the original column shift/drivetrain configuration. The clutch works well and it shifts nicely. The original transfer case was replaced by a later, larger diameter idler shaft style, which functions well. The rear axle appears to be date coded 9 18 45. I could not determine the date code on the front but it is the earlier style with bolt on control arms.

1945 VEC CJ-2A Norman, OK **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $3000.

It’s a project.

“This is referred to as a Very Early CJ (VEC) Jeep. Serial number 10391, it was the 391st CJ ever made. Probably produced the second or third day they made CJ’s. (they started at serial number 10001 and they only made about 1800 of these 1945 model CJ’s.) It is partly disassembled and all the parts are there. The engine and trans are replacements. the original shifter was on the steering column and it has been replaced with floor shift. The motor does turn over and they sealed it up when they took some of the parts off, so it is not full of dirt dobbers and rust, probably rebuildable. The floor has rust holes around the reinforcement channels as is normal with these jeeps. Replacement parts are readily available. The other parts of the body are in good shape. Front fenders are very smooth, hood is straight and stiff, has the original windshield rests on it. Grill is excellent. Tub has side indents for shovel and pick, like war jeeps. Has the original Power Take Off on the rear with all shafts and shifter in place. 6-Volt starter and generator. one 6v wiper for driver side, manual for rider. Harrison Heater. Selectro locking hubs. full floating rear axle, like a war jeep. Tailgate is good. gas tank looks good. Side mount spare carrier is gone but I can throw one in on the deal.
Also included is a new draw bar for the rear and a replacement front bumper.
This would make a great tribute jeep in military style or a nice jeep CJ show/parade car. Or, put a 302 in it, lift it and put big tires on it and go to the river. or do a little brush hogging with the PTO attachment.”
