1972 Article on the PNW4WDA and the Boys Scouts

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

This April of 1972 article in Boy’s Life Magazine tells the story of the Boys Scouts work project on the Naches Trail in the Cascade Mountains just north of Mt. Rainier in conjunction with the Pacific Northwest Four-Wheel-Drive Association. I was not there (that I remember), but our club, the Wandering Willys, including my father, was there to help ferry the Boy Scouts to the Naches Trail.

Cool Willys/Kasier/Jeep Magnets

• CATEGORIES: Features

Over the past couple years I’ve been the beneficiary of some custom magnets created by Maury. I figured it was about time I shared them. I keep them on both sides of a metal bookshelf, but moved them to one side for the photo. Many thanks Maury!

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5950.

(07/20/2018) Looks like the tub is metal. The hood might be a rare teardrop Bobcat fiberglass hood.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/cto/d/kirkland-1952-jeep-willys-buick-v6/6883515736.html

“Had fun with this thing now time for the next toy. This is a forest green 1952 Jeep Willy’s (cj2a I think). Buick engine swap done by last owner. Such a good weekend driver for the summer with the reliable engine (no choke but runs awesome). Comes with full canvas top. Everything works except windshield wipers (needs to be hooked up is all), and there is no parking brake. Basically everything else is there and functional.

It is in good drivable condition and looks great from 30ft. The body is a bit rough under the paint, but it’s old after all. If your looking for something stock to bring back to original glory this is not it… this is the perfect weekend truck for chores, beers, etc.”

“A total of 19,000 Jeepsters were made between 1948 and 1951, but only 1900 were made in 1949. This has been called the last of the American Phaetons. This is not a show car, but a beautiful driver that has been in the family for over 30 years. I have used it in my Magic shows for the last 20 years. It is with great sorrow that I’m selling this part of our family but I am unable to drive it enough to keep; it is time to let someone else enjoy what our family have enjoyed so much.

Many extras: here are just a few
Buick 231 V-6 – very low mileage
Mustang II front end
New custom soft top
New side curtains
Must see to appreciate.

I am a retiring magician, and will be selling my costumes, collections, and working tricks and illusions as well as assorted items I have collected along the way; so many things, so little time, but working on making it yours, not mine.”

https://sacramento.craigslist.org/for/d/davis-cj-2a/6895299559.html

year-cj2a-davis-ca1 year-cj2a-davis-ca2

“Runs great. Nice body, good frame, good seats.
Four-wheel drive works well.
Disk Brakes on front.
Skyjacker Lift: springs and shackles.

Roll bar and seat belts.
Great looking tires and wheels.
12 volt: Alternator and new battery.

Steering has been converted from stock: works and drives, but needs work:
· Unknown box is loose: tighten or install the provided/included rebuilt Saginaw box.
· Angle of shaft between box and column is too much for the single joint installed. Needs a double joint <$200.

· Tilt column is too short. Knuckles hit windshield. Need to replace it with another longer junkyard unit or a $90 one from Speedway. (would look better too.)

Has a vintage heater in place of a temperature gauge. Re-plumb it or sell it to a collector.
Comes with a new temperature gauge and proper fittings, need to install it.
New oil pan gasket installed: looked great inside pan.
Oil leak at pressure gauge hose: New hose in shipping now, need to install.
Trans drips so you know it has fluid. Could try 120 wt. or re-gasket.
One of the windshield panes is cracked.

Has most of a good top: both doors, good top with one mouse hole, looks like has all bows, maybe missing windshield rail. (I never put it on)

Note the nice custom speaker boxes that work well. Radio works but missing face plate. Plays the included ZZTOP CD well.

Includes NEW miscellaneous parts: points and condenser, original style carb gasket…
Good windshield wiper and motors included loose. (too close to steering wheel) No horn, I may have one.

Original spare tire mount and bolts. lots of holes to install it on side or back.
Bumper hitch.

In NON-OP. Will register if that works for buyer.”
