Last weekend Joe’s military transport club contributed thirteen vehicles to the Gilbert Days Parade in Arizona. He took pics of the jeeps and a few others. Great stuff!
Joe wrote, Here are pics of 4 military jeeps from our club (AHMTA – Arizona Historic Military Transportation Association) that drove in today’s Gilbert Days Parade. Scott David’s 1942 slat grill was in pole position, further back was my 1942 GPW, followed by Dave Boehmer’s MB with his son
manning the .30 cal, and protecting our “6” was Mike Wixom’s 1950 CJV35/U.
The weather was perfect; the vehicles all ran great; the crowds were
cheering; and we “invaded” a nearby Sonic afterward.
Joe & his 1942 GPW
On the right is Dave Boehmer’s MB.
Scott David’s 1942 MB Slat Grill
Above is the front and below is the rear of Mike Wixom’s CJ-V35/U.
Staged near our 13 or so military vehicles was a collection of 6 incredible rat rods all apparently owned by, or representing “Preferred Foot & Ankle Specialists“. I don’t know anything about that business/practice but I sure liked his vehicles.
Seller calls the engine a flathead, but it’s an f-head.
“This jeep runs and drives good. It is equipped complete with Warn winch and soft top. This jeep still has the flat head 4cyl. engine and three speed transmission. It also has brand new Buckshot tires. Call for more info. ”
This may be worth a look. Has a PTO, possibly a rear unit.
“Just putting this out there because i am thinking of selling the old willys. I love the thing and it runs amazingly well for a 1953 but i am in need of money. I have a 1953 Willys CJ3A farm model with pto that has always been stored in a garage. It starts up first time every time even with a cold engine. The 4WD and pto both work as they should as well. I was planning on making it my summer cruiser but did not have the money to get it road ready. It has a fiberglass tub and fenders but metal windshield frame and hood. What it needs to be road ready/sticker ready is blinker switch needs to be added, rear tail light relay, all the gauges need to be wired other then the spedo, horn needs to be wired, windshield wiper needs to be wired, seems to need brake shoes all the way around, oil pump gasket, oil pan gasket, exhaust pipe hanger kit needs to be added. And that was all it needs. I have a TON of extra parts for it such as lap seat belts, rear seat, blinker switch, interior light, side steps, brand new brake light and a ton of odds and ends stuff. NOT INTERESTED IN TRADES CASH IN HAND ONLY !!!”
UPDATE: Still Available
“1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A CJ Great Flat fender – (Saint Paul, MN)
1st civilian model
We did a frame off restoration in 1994. (including engine rebuild, tranny rebuild, etc….)
Runs and drives great. It has a warn overdrive (rare), which enables it to go 50/55 mph.
We have owned it for about 21 years. We recently tuned it it up. (Master cylinder, cap, rotor, plugs, and carb adjustment, oil change and pan re-seal, new alum radiator, water pump, and alternator (GM Style).
(pictures don’t show new radiator and alternator)
Tires are in great shape.
4 wheel drive works well, and the transfer case works properly. All electrical works as well. We hate to let it go, but have too many Jeeps. It is only used to plow our driveway – this is not its’ primary function.
Please call with any questions. I prefer you call between 4:00pm and 8 pm. The Jeep is currently in heated storage in Anoka, but can be taken out. (wed evenings work well for me) Please call instead of emailing (I am posting this for my father, he does not do Craigslist)”

It appears to be a pretty original jeep, but it could use some restoration.
“1953 Willys Jeep CJ-3B, all original, flat-fender, first year of the “Hurricane Four” 4 cyl F-head motor. Original 6-volt electrical system, original oil-bath air cleaner, original vacuum motor windshield wiper. It has spent its whole life in the Oregon High Desert east of the mountains, so there is no significant rust, and was driven only locally for the last 50 yrs, so it has not been “put through the wringer.” Was driven occasionally and parked in back of the house for many years, and has been in a garage for the last several. It could probably be driven away, but has rarely been run for the last 15 years or so. Probably has gas varnished up in the fuel system, and should have a hi-detergent oil run a short while before an oil change, etc. It should probably be taken to its new home via a trailer for face-lift and/or restoration. Got a bunch more pics, email-able, if you’re interested —

It could use some polish.
“Runs great, Vintage Jeep”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $24,000.
(07/23/2015) This wagon sure shines.
“This is a great example of a complete frame off , rust free restoration. Rus and drives perfectly, and everything is in working order including 4 wheel drive.”
This looks a lot like the Beck/Kemco top, but the top of the back is angled rather than flat (see bottom pic). I couldn’t find a comparable top to identify it. It’s a good price.
“Get your CJ2A ready for some cool weather driving! For sale is a Arctic top for a CJ2A. Includes two full doors with working windows and a back window that lifts and locks. Priced way below what you normal find them for – only $100.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $2300.
This looks to have four combat rims. Good price if that’s the case.
“Awesome Jeep CJ2a
Runs great, F head motor
Clean title in hand
Everything works great, just could use the brakes bled.
Might trade or part trade for?”
No pics provided. Seems overpriced for something that needs work.
“Willy Jeep runs. Original parts. Does need work on fuel pumo and vacuum. 1952. I do have the original electrical harness for the electrical hook up. Asking 6000$ or best offer.”
It’s a project.

Craig spotted this one. I wonder if the seller is serious about the $100 price? There’s plenty of value if that’s the case.
“1947 Willy’s Truck. Make an offer.”
In 1946 reporter Gordon MarQuarrie and photojournalist drove around Lake Superior in a new Jeep station wagon. They provided reports on September 17th and September 18th, 1946.
