The RC FC-170 (and Other RC Videos)

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models, videos

From a mutant supersized jeep, we turn to the Mini FC. Scott reminded me that I hadn’t shared this video of Headquake’s FC-170 RC jeep. A couple years ago I featured another of HQ’s projects, the RC MB. You can see other projects (200 videos) on Headquake’s Youtube channel, including a CJ-5, a Jeep Rural, a Cherokee, and a Wagoneer,

1944 Photo of Jeeps on Guadacanal on ebay

Eight inches of rain in twenty-four hours sounds miserable!

“This is an original press photo. Guadalcanal has two seasons, the rainy, between November and May and the wet. The only difference is that during the wet season there are no floods or as the natives put in when the rainy season comes “White men leaves the island, and the native die.

American Marine soldiers and sailors couldn’t leave the island and when the rainy season reached peak recently they were amazed at the vast quantities of water that poured continuously from the clouds. As much as eight inches of rain fall in 24 hours and river rose as high as seven feet above normal in two hours, Frantically everything was under water and most transportation was by boat. Flood Bridged – Two jeeps make their perilous way across a temporary bridge that was constructed over a low spot on Guadalcanal to prevent disruption of traffic. The swirling waters undermined this bridge before it was even completed but the floods caused such a major problems to transportation that anything above water was considered safe.

Photo measures 8.25 x 10.25 inches. Photo is dated 04-30-1944.”

1978 VW Veep South China, ME $4500

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others

Has a tiny bit of rust at the driver’s step, but otherwise looks in good shape.

“This is an original VEEP VW kit car assembled using a kit from Hadley Engineering in 1978. The all steel Willy’s body sits on a 2″X3″ box steel frame. A VW link pin front beam, a sedan extended rear trailing arm/adjustable torsion beam suspension, a VW bus 4 speed trans and 1969 air-cooled VW engine complete the kit. This rare kit is sought after by both Jeep and VW fanatics and always garners attention wherever you go.

The ‘BestTop’ vinyl top is only a few years old and is like new. Always garaged. The overall condition is very good with limited surface rust. Starts and runs great. Rear wheel drive. Brakes are a bit touchy as expected with the vintage drum style brakes. This unit includes a solid tow-bar and the light weight makes this a breeze to tow.

Meets registration requirements as an antique auto registered as a 1969 VW.”

1946 CJ-2A Goffstown, NH $12,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,000.

(06/16/2018) Column shift 2A that’s never been restored according to the seller.

https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/1946-willys-cj2a/6672171140.html

“1946 Willys column shift CJ2A. This is a survivor and by that I mean it has never been restored, only maintained. This was purchased new by the same family who owned it for 70 years before I bought it. It was used on the families country home in upstate New York for hunting and fishing mostly and always garage kept. It has never been used to plow. Everything works as it should. It still has the generator but everything was converted to 12V long ago. Other things not stock include 2 taillights and directionals.

The top is original or period correct and the jeep was apparently always used with the top on. All the original hardware for the top is there. That said the top is unique as it’s original but it has some rips and the windows are cloudy. There were floor mats throughout that were removed prior to taking the pictures.The jeep starts, runs and sounds great. It will need a new exhaust. One picture shows the gages and the reading warmed up and at an idle. Column shift works well but going to 2nd takes a getting used too. Wooden box between the front seats is a 4 place rifle rack. The ID tags on the body, dash and frame are all present and with matching numbers. The body on this jeep while original has been “kept up on” over the years with body work as needed. Jeep is being sold with a bill of sale and a NH registration.”

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ-2A … It has always been a dream of mine to own a 40’s vintage jeep decked out in WWII fashion like this ever since I was a young man. I’ve had my fun with it, but now I am more concerned about needed garage space vs. having this. I will sell for the right price, but I certainly won’t give it away.

First and foremost, I do have a clean title to the vehicle. If you don’t follow these things that closely, that is a somewhat rare occurrence.

The jeep is in VERY good shape with very little rust and a body that is in great shape (original body, not a fiberglass version). Here’s what I’ve done to it since owning it:

“I have a non-running 1948 Willys Jeep that is mainly for parts (or for an adventurous restorer). It has an excellent grill, hood, radiator, gas tank, tail gate, front and rear differentials, drive shafts, wheels and seat frames. I would categorize the frame as good to very good. The front fenders can be repaired. The tub is junk. The windshield is pretty much junk. The motor looks ok but will not turn over at this time. I have oil in the spark plug holes. The oil in the motor looks ok. The transmission and transfer case shifters move in and out of gear. I have taped things up to keep the mice out. I also have a home made top and doors for the Jeep that can be purchased for an extra $100. I would like $1200 for the old girl.”

“Selling my 1948 Willys CJ 2a

1948 Willys CJ2A project. I bought it just like it is. The body on this is in surprisingly good shape, not really rusted through anywhere on the outside. The rockers and bottoms of the fenders are solid. The floor is about the only place that needs patched.

Supposedly the previous owner had the engine rebuilt, but it hasn’t been started yet and I haven’t tried. Turns over freely and has definitely been out. Through the inspection plate, it appears as if the clutch is new too. Brakes don’t currently work. Transmission shifts through all gears as it should.

Here’s what I know are missing: Headlights,tailgate,starter, front seats, and gas tank

I don’t have a title, but I will provide a notarized bill of sale which is what you’ll need to get it registered in this state”

Willys MB/GPW From Transformers “Bumblebee” Movie @ Auction

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

On August 25th, the jeep (GPW frame with MB body?) used in the upcoming Transformers “Bumblebee” movie (scheduled to arrive in theaters in Dec 2018)  will be auctioned at https://bid.screenused.com/Bumblebee-Bumblebee-Willys-Jeep_i31014225. The current bid is $19,000. As you can see in the pics, this MB isn’t all stock. It appears to have a GPW front crossmember. Another pic, from the top rear, suggests it has MB toolboxes.

In the movie, the Bumblebee character starts off as a jeep, but soon becomes a VW, remaining a VW for the remainder of the movie.
