Today we didn’t do much but relax and wander around Monterey on a mostly cloudy day. Monterey has two wharfs, one more tourist oriented and one more local oriented. We started at the latter by grabbing some clam chowder at the Sandbar & Grille Restaurant. The chowder tasted good, but was a little too much potato chunks and too little clams.
After lunch we got on our tourist vibe with a walk to the other more notable wharf.
The ‘tourist’ wharf even had an unofficial greeter:
It doesn’t look like his fishing is faring to well.
At the end of wharf Ann got busy with her camera, so I got busy photographing her.
As we left the wharf I decided to see if YELP could find an interest ice cream place. Sure enough, YELP found Kai Lee Creamery in Pacific Grove. Kai Lee was started six months ago by Butch Adams who had no experience in the industry. His goal is to make ice cream that is organic, gluten-free, non-soy, all-natural, vegetarian, and handmade.
Oscar Skold was in Colombia last month. He shot these photos for us (at least that’s the way I’d like to think of them).
He reports, “I know most of these are not actually Willys jeeps but nevertheless a very cool encounter while I was visiting Colombia a month ago. They use most of these old jeeps as taxis and you see them everywhere. Unfortunately I didn’t have a camera to shoot all that I saw but these pics gives you an idea what a great country this is to travel around in. We were mostly in the Medellin area and south, down to a town called Roldanillo.”
Note that the seller will go no lower than $1500. Should go quick.
“Willys jeep will be nice for a person it has a flat head 4cyl in it has a pto on back of it. is a stick shift no b.s. offers. Lowest i will go is 1’500″
John spotted this auction. He reports the jeep is as good as it looks in the photo.
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7,500

“1951 Willys Wagon 4×4 – $1600 firm.
An untouched 1951 Willys’-Overland wagon, 4×4. Original 4cyl engine. Body is in great shape considering its age. This is the last year this vehicle had one taillight.
An ‘original’ mid section Willys’-Overland bumper is included (a previous owner destroyed the one currently on the vehicle.
The vehicle includes the original half-folding second seat which is quite rare. Also, the vehicle still has both rear arm rests. The original oak planks in the floor are in great condition.
This vehicle does not start (no battery) however the engine turns freely. It will need to be towed on a flatbed trailer and/or truck.
Sorry, no trades and I will not part-out. If I don’t sell it the whole thing for $1600, I’m pulling the engine, trans and t-case and scraping the rest of it.”
Not perfect (and missing a speedometer), but fun for a ride.

“Project vehicle Jeep Willys with overdrive sad to sell was going to do this with my father and I came down with a chronic illness.”
“Up for sale is this very nice 1952 Willys M38A1. This Jeep was purchased a few years ago and had underwent a full frame off restoration before purchase. It has been lightly used ever since and is still in very good condition! The paint still looks great since the restoration and there are a few chips in it from normal wear and tear and I will try and show any imperfections in the pictures. It comes with a complete canvas top and doors that are in great condition with no tears. All drive terrain and electrical systems had been gone through and are in perfect working condition. The original 24 volt system is still working great and she fires up every time. The original Brass data plate is still intact! This is a great driving jeep and runs and drives like it did when it was new. If you’ve been interested in an army jeep now is your chance to own one!
If you have any question about the jeep or something more you would like to see that was not shown in the pictures please feel free to email me, call me or text me at 360-601-fourzero30 and I will be happy to answer any questions the best I can.”

“I’m selling my 1960 Willys/Jeep CJ3B. These Jeeps are highly sought after by collectors and 4×4 enthusiasts alike, especially in original condition. I’ve recently had a new exhaust system installed, rebuilt the transmission, purchased a new top, tires, and had the seats reupholstered. It runs and drives great, and shifts through all gears (including 4WD H/L) perfectly. It has rust spots on the body. It has a clear Kansas title, and can be tagged as an antique, which costs around $40 in Kansas.
I’m asking $5000. If you’d like to see the Jeep email me through Craigslist.
Looks kind of odd. I’m not sure that is a jeep chassis.
