No updates today. Updates resume Tuesday. Happy Labor Day!
Dorothea Lange is famous for her Depression era photo of a migrant mother. In the 1950s she traveled to Southeast Asia. Fortunately for us, she took some jeep photos while she was there and the Online Archives of California has preserved them.
That’s a fully loaded jeep.
“1944- U.S. soldiers, killed during German counter attack during the Battle of the Bulge, lie dead in the snow as jeep of the 4th Armored Division heads toward Chaumont.”
Some things never change.
“VINTAGE POSTCARD – CONDITION: VG. DATE/ERA: 1930s-50s. Standard Size 3.5×5.5.”
How’d you like to be the person that drove the jeep to this iconic place.

It’s got some bling and looks like a sound jeep.

That underside of this jeep sure looks good.

(07/07/2014) Nice looking CJ-6. Are those plates on the sides original?
“This is an original Kaiser Jeep with the original 225 V6 engine. The engine is strong and runs great. It has a new Rochester carburetor with original oil bath filter. The transfer case, shifters, and lockers are all fully functional. The gearbox is quiet and shifts excellently. Just had the seats professionally re-upholstered to the original specs. It also has the original front seat belts. Lap belts of course. This Jeep is solid all around and with no rust issues. The body on the Jeep is also all original with no welding or modified hack jobs. The suspension has never been modified. It has a new speedometer. The paint is not original and faded as it is a classic Jeep. The top is in rough shape but it comes with all of the bows and door frames. This is an old Jeep, but extremely well preserved in great running condition. You rarely find them like this anymore.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.
(08/23/2014) Should check the body closely on this one.
“Own a piece of American History! I am sadly selling my 46 CJ2A Willys Jeep. Motor runs great. Body is in not too bad of shape because prior owner under coated entire thing. Excellent for hunting, ranching, farming and forest exploring. Motor has been converted to AC. Wanted to restore it someday, but just don’t have time. I also have military sticker kit. Has collector plates as I used to drive it on roads during summer. Have to see and drive to appreciate. Don’t let this one slip away.”
This sounds worth a look.

“Stainless Steel Willys Jeep Tub”
UPDATE: Still Available
(07/15/2014) I don’t think this runs.
“Real piece of history, a real 1943 GPW(Ford) WWII Military jeep RARE barn find. Non working (prop) 50 cal machine gun was added. Engine was loose two years ago now set. All original tags and number on body and frame looks to be all there. Body does have some rust (frame is solid) and body does have some metal patch work, but for the year looks to be a solid and is useable. Starting out $11,000.00 OBO The old timer wisconsin farmer that I bought it from could not find the title for this one because he had it on the farm for so many years. But in Wisconsin you can get a title (not a big deal) I can even help with that, if you have never done it before. I was going to fix this one up for my father (old military vet) but he has since pasted away.
Contact me over email and I can get back to you, I am not looking for tire kickers or deal lookers, I don’t need to sell. I have picked up two other parts GPW that I brought back and need to restore for myself so I will sell this one so I can focus on the other. I put on description clean title because it is not being sold for a parts vehicle and owner can get a title because it is a original WWII jeep and all original tags and or ID numbers are there on body and frame. It is not a Willys jeep but a real Ford WWII GPW JEEP but Willys was put on this heading for any jeep lovers not knowing the history of the first real military jeeps”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $3600.
