1946 VEC CJ-2A **SCAM ALERT**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE ***: Jurgen spotted this one. The ad for this jeep has resurfaced, this time in Ireland. Note the text claims the body panels has their “rivets” removed using a special tool. The panels were welded together via spot welds, not held together using rivets. It’s the same claim made in the text from last year: https://www.vintagestefano.com/for-sale

scam-1946-cj2a-uk

UPDATE II: A Craigslister reported that the seller is away and keeps raising the price as emails are exchanged. “Guy claims he is govt working but keeps asking for more and more info if you respond to his add…beware”

UPDATE: This jeep was on eBay a couple days ago. The seller listed it in College Station, Texas. The same jeep just popped up on a West Virginia Craigslist for only $4000. The text in the ad is similar to the text shown down below. 

Here’s the current scam ad: http://huntington.craigslist.org/cto/5644379040.html

“1946 Willys VEC (Very Early Civilian) CJ-2A Jeep – Museum Quality Restoration

Offered is a 1946 CJ-2A that has undergone a frame-off, nut and bolt, rotisserie restoration. This is a very early civilian version, identified by square windshield plates, column shift, tool indents, ‘F’ script bolts in drive train, frame tag on the outside of the driver front gusset and three data plates on the dash.

I acquired this Willys Jeep CJ-2A from a Kingman, Kansas flying service in 2008 where it was being used as an airport tug. Everything was original, uncut, matching numbers and well preserved in several coats of orange paint. The frame tag, dash data plate and the Willys body tag are each numbered 17968 and correctly located. The motor number is CJ-2A 18464. The AMC numbers on the tailgate and front gusset are matching and both read 8620. Continue reading

This vehicle was a barn find and has just been recently repainted with olive drab green paint as you can see in the pics. It has less than expected rust for a vehicle of its age and has a very solid frame. The seats were also redone. The Jeep was recently displayed in a local car show and received numerous compliments.

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Elk Grove, CA $4995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Seller lists this as a VEC, but without tool indents or a column shift, I wonder if that is the case. Looks like it could make a good restoration though.

“1946 JEEP CJ-2A, (VEC). Numbers matching with a clear Calif. title. This is a barn find it had been sitting for years. It starts and runs good, I drove it last week. It has very good oil pressure although it burns some oil. It has a new water pump & rad. hoses, new fuel pump, 6V battery, new brake wheel cyl and rebuilt master cyl, new steering bell crank shaft and brgs. The lights work. This Jeep was originally (as you see it) green in color with 15 inch cream wheels with blue pin stripes. The tub is very solid very little rust, there was a truck cab and a rear cover protecting the floors. It has a PTO winch. I can deliver within 300 miles for a fee.”

1945 VEC CJ-2A Griffin, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2200.

(02/24/2016) Looks to be a mix of VEC and non VEC parts. The windshield and tranny are incorrect at the very least. Seems to have the correct rear hubs.

“The CJ-2A was the very first model of the civilian Jeeps. 1945 was the first year of production and this is one of those bearing serial number 11086. It is in need of restoration but the vehicle is all there, engine, transmission, all running gear, very good shape for age. The first of the are tagged as “Very Early Civilian” or VEC, which this is one of. Original color was green which is one of the two colors available in 1945. Call with questions.”
