1946 VEC CJ-2A Las Vegas, NV $18,800


Looks in good shape.

“Rare “Early Civilian” 1946 Willy Jeep CJ-2A. Mostly stock with numerous original or new reproduction parts. Too much to list in new parts and restoration.

1946 VEC CJ-2A Princeton, IN $1800


It’s an early roller.

“Very Early Civilian model CJ2A. If this ad is still up it’s still for sale. Ser#18711, ’46 column shift. The frame, drivetrain, and body have been primered. This jeep does not have an engine. The body has had some bad spots cut out and patch panels made. The panels fit great but are not welded in. You can weld in these panels, or buy reproductions and use them depending on how precise of a restoration you want to do. This is a great restoration candidate, still has the column shifter and transmission. I do have other parts available for this project.”

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


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

Appears worth a look.

“1946 Willys CJ2A ser#20775
This is an early model civilian jeep. The chassis is good, body is fair. Needs some small patch work but nothing major. The engine turns by hand, transmission shifts fine. Appears to have 2″ lift springs on it. Tires are old but all 4 hold air and have decent tread left. No title, I will provide bill of sale, or I can obtain a title for an additional fee.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Boise, ID $2750


UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/14/2019) This has a column shift, a governor and a PTO.

“I have top many jeep projects, so this one needs to go. Early model Willys CJ2A that has the 3 speed on the steering column rather than on the floor. There is also the PTO shifter, but no PTO winch or other devices. The engine looks fairly original. This is a project and will need some rust removal, etc. Clean Idaho title I am open to trades for a car hauler or high end lead throwers, or other interesting items”

1946 CJ-2A Dickson, TN $600


Has full floaters and an early head, but I don’t see other aspects of a VEC here. It may be an early 2A with a newer body.

“Price is for complete vehicle. No title being sold for parts only.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Minneapolis, MN $18,000


Seller’s text describes this as an auction?

1946-vec-cj2a-minn-mn1 1946-vec-cj2a-minn-mn2

“Complete frame off restoration on 1946 CJ2A. This is an early column shift. Jeep was taken down to bare metal for a complete nut and bolt restoration. Absolutely every bit of rust was removed. Engine, transmission, differentials, transfer case, brakes etc were all rebuild. New brake lines, new everything.

We used every non wear part and sourced original Willy’s/Jeep parts we could to keep it as original as possible. Correct pasture green color with hand painted wheel stripe just as it was when it came out of Willy’s. I have pictures of the restoration process. This auction includes hard to find rear PTO and Drum pulley implement. Soft top was hand made and includes original top bow set and doors with window surrounds. Your going to be hard pressed to find a finer example of an early 2A. Serious offers only this price is extremely fair and well under what was spent to restore.”
