Quick Trip Down to Utah

It’s not quite ready to drive yet, but I can pretend to drive this former four-wheel-steer Bantam. Someday I will drive a running one!

On Monday we drove down to Boise where we met up with Josh to see his prized four-wheel-steer Bantam BRC-40, which appears to have been converted to two-wheel-steer by the military. According to Josh, the four wheel-steer-jeeps were horrendous to drive, so they weren’t used that way for long. He’s in the process of gathering the parts he needs to do a full restoration on it.

Two interesting tidbits about the four wheel steer Bantams. In the first photo, the inner sides of the wheel wells were beaten with hammers to accommodate the four-wheel-steer mechanisms.2015-02-25-josh18

One way to identify a four-wheel-steer is by shocks mounted inside and in back of the springs like the ones shown below.2015-02-25-josh119

Josh has a few other jeeps around as well. I got so busy talking with him that I forgot to photograph the others. Meanwhile, my photographer got chilly, so she returned to the jeep. Zollie accompanied us on our trip, so Ann posed him in front of this jeep.

After spending Monday night in Boise, we drove down to Salt Lake on Tuesday. We picked up the boys and went to eat some delicious food at the Mahider Ethiopian restaurant. Below is the huge plate of food we ordered. To eat, you tear some of the spongy, fermented bread called Injera from the edges of the plate and scoop up food with it.

2015-02-25-ethiopian-food3On Wednesday we went to Kimball Junction to see the Topeka Hiway Mower for sale here. After that we returned to Salt Lake City and took Colter to a movie (Karson was busy with college). Unfortunately, by Wednesday afternoon snow was predicted on the Blue Mountains in Oregon, so we decided to head back Thursday night.

It was a short visit to Utah, but a good one.

Topeka Hiway Mower Park City, UT Best Offer

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Jean would like to see this saved rather than send it to salvage. She’s moving, so it has to go. I drove up to Kimball Junction in Utah on Wednesday to get some better photos. The mower is a mix of jeep and non-jeep parts.   You can contact Jean at jnbpc  @  msn.com if interested in the mower. I have other photos.

This ‘Tornado’ Topeka Hiway Mower is different from other Topeka mowers I’ve featured. One of the biggest differences is the front grill area. All the Topeka’s I’ve seen have an angled front grille area like these. The front of Jean’s model has a more typical tractor front.

Jean hasn’t used it much over the last seven years. The motor was rebuilt around that time and has had very little use since. It is four wheel drive, has a transfer case, and a continental engine.

Are these FC suspension mounts?

2015-02-25-topeka-hiway8

Note the centered pumpkin. The Topeka uses a Dana 18 transfer case, so the driveline is angled.

Year? Wagon Fredericksburg, TX $3500

It runs, but is still a project.

“My wife and I bought this 1950’s Jeep Wagon last year with the intention of wrapping it with vinyl for advertisement. The guy we bought it from told us we only had to do a couple of things. We messed up and got in way over our heads. He did not do the steering correct so it needs a Steering Kit. It was been put on an S-10 chassis or so we were told. It has an engine, transmission, 4-barrel carb. It starts and seems to run well. We are in it twice what we are asking this by our own ignorance. If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can tell you all about it. We have all the frames for the windows and door handles.”
