I stuck to the bed on Sunday. I’m not terribly sick by any means, just semi-tortured by a continuous cough that won’t let me sleep or talk much without coughing. Hopefully with a day of rest, we’ll be ready to go by Tuesday.
On the positive side, I’ve had time to read a couple books. I’m particularly enjoying a book called Great Stagecoach Robberies of the Old West. As the title indicates, it is a history of major stagecoach robberies!

This 1955 article in the September/October issue of Willys News highlights how dealer Elmer Horstmeyer uses his service jeep to generate more revenue.
The seller suggests that Hadley Engineering’s VEEP business later became Wil-Mac Product’s SCAMP. It’s the first I’ve run across this, but it could be true. The recessed lights and the circle filler cap on the fuel inlet (this did not have an underseat tank) are consistent with the VEEP.
Up for sale is my authentic Hadley Veep (later known as the Scamp). As you may know the Veep is a 1970s-era kit car that combines an authentic Willys Jeep body with VW Beetle running gear on a custom box-section frame.
This is a complete running car in great mechanical shape. It starts easily, idles smoothly, accelerates and brakes normally and is a thrill to drive.
The all steel body is in good/fair shape. The hood, fenders and body tub are mostly solid. But there is some rotten metal on the bottom of the body tub (see photos). The frame is solid but does have surface rust. The windshield glass was cut a little small so there’s some rubber filler on the right end.
This Veep uses the running gear from a 1971 Beetle and features the following:
Runs and drives.
Custom rims and wheels, also original wheels, soft top and sides, new leather front and back seats. All original, no body rust and running.’
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500
(04/04/2015) Nice looking jeep.
“1950 Willys CJ3A Civilian Flatfender. 95% stock, Flathead 4 cyl. 4 wheel drive, stored for 20+ years, few new improvements, Koeniq “Tin Top”, half roll cage, Diamond Plate corners and steps.

Updated with an F-head.
“F head engine-11 inch brakes-overdrive-less than 2000 miles since restoration”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(03/24/2015) Runs and drives.
“I BOUGHT THIS WILLYS A FEW MONTHS AGO AS A PROJECT. MY JOB HAS CHANGED NOW I AM ON THE ROAD ALL THE TIME. THE JEEP RUNS DRIVES AND LOOKS GOOD IT NEEDS TO BE DRIVEN AS IS OR RESTORED TO ITS GLORY DAYS. I AM JUST LOOKING TO GET WHAT I PAID FOR IT 4000.00. ”
Pics could be more helpful. Includes a Warn OD.
“1946 Willys jeep has Warren over drive. Runs for more info call Kevin!”
UPDATE: Still Available.
“1965 Buick 225 V6 engine; full tune up Aug. 2013
12V with new single wire alternator Aug. 2013
Carb rebuilt (sub out and returned for install) Aug 2013 due to accelerate pump issue. The float tends to sticks with sharp left turns. The manufacturer specs for the carb float just don’t work. I had resolved before rebuild and can do again.
4 speed T90 transmission (1st is a granny) new case oil. Entire driveline is good.
Transfer case with Rhino PTO drives front Rhino hydraulic winch; 538s differentials — all new oils.
New park brake drum shoes (not installed as I wanted to ensure leaking stopped). Can re-install or provided pics/manual before my busy work season begins.
31 tires w/15″ wheels with excellent tread; digs in great. sidewalls solid.
Full canvas top (tan) and doors — kept the rain out just fine last winter.
Tow bar with swiveling, pintle hook. Must be rated 30k lbs (guessing). Way over sized for the jeep weight.
Swing gas can and spare tire rack; spare and 2 cans included. Currently gate is off as PO welded tailgate and I broke weld set up to operate the gate.
Body is in good shape for a 65 yr old. Tool box has some rust out. Otherwise fairly clean of rust issues.
Brakes — probably need adjustment. I never looked at the shoes as the tires and gearing always slowed the jeep just fine.
PO welded windshield frame as one unit, but with parts and work it can be restored to tilt open. Vac wiper works fine.
Horn is from a 1947 CJ2A, so solid sound for the purist.
Jeep is kept in garage.”
All three look rough.
“Willy jeep cj2a no motor body in fair shap,transmission is good,front end and rear end good. I have a Willys cj3b jeep engine locked up complete jeep ,fair shape. 900.00 . I have a 1971 cj5 with v 6 Buick motor, no transmission good parts jeep 850.00″
Has an L-head in it.
“Up for sale is my military style 1960 Willys Jeep. Seems to have the older and more reliable motor in it (older than 1960). Is this the Willys Go Devil engine? Can someone help me identify correctly? I took it down the road but would suggest towing it home to check out systems. I have many photos and can take more if you need. This is a black plate car and is currently registered. No back registration to have to pay(a definite plus). Text if you have questions. Won’t be around long. Comes with some parts and FRONT PASSENGER SEAT, in good condition(matches other one)plus spare tire. Front passenger tire has slow leak and might need to be remounted. I would like to keep the roll bar, so if you want the roll bar, it is sold separately. ”
Odd cowl patch location.
“Selling a 1951 Willy Jeep
Runs like a top”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(02/02/2015) Looks in good shape. Is that wood lining the body edge and the dash. Maybe a replacement body?
“Awesome jeep. This is a collectors jeep but can handle serious every day drivers. Please call my cell, and we can talk more about it. ”
UPDATE: Was $1200.
Runs. No title. Appears to have parts value. Looks like an f-head to me.
“I have a complete 58 willies for sale I dont have a title but frame is good and it runs has hi n lo gear and a winch runs off pto it has the 4 cyl iron duke and it all seems complete no low ballets no check or pay pal great woods buggy or parts if your redoing one”
Runs, but needs some bodywork.
“1960 Willys Wagon, with the original 6 cylinder and 3 speed transmission, and solid axle four wheel drive. The brakes have been re-done, and a new battery installed. The old Willys runs good, and goes down the road good. The Willys still has the original seats. The previous owner repaired the floorboards and the rust above the right side rear wheel well. I added a photo of the left rear wheel well, which is the only rust spot on the Willys Wagon.”
“1942 willys jeep for sale. Runs and drives great. 4×4 works good. Original engine and tranny. Everything works great. Lots of original parts and some extra stuff added to it.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $550.
Seems like a good price.
“This would be a good project or parts vehicle.”
Is it sagging? Has some parts value, but hurts to look at. Interesting rear cargo area mod.
“I am selling a complete 56 willys with plow. No title. Was previously titled and vin plate is intact. Previous plate on vehichle. I purchased for parts and do not need as I ended up not needing it. It has a very heavy duty setup from factory as a plow truck. Wmotor is free but not running. Plow setup is included. frame is rough. Body is rough. Driveline is the money. 1200.00 for all. I also have a lot of parts for a 47 cj2a”
Top rims pictured need a closer examination.
“I have 4 WWII combat wheels for a Willy MB and Ford GPW. In the first picture, the bottom two rims look goo. The top let rim has a very small amount of metal eroded away around the valve stem hole. The top right rim has holes (you can stick your fingers through) around the valve stem area (shaded area in picture)”
Looks to have value. No title.
I have an old Willy’s jeep CJ2A I need to sell. Been in a barn over 20 years till the barn blew down. It does not run and cannot find title but it is a solid jeep for its age.”
It’s a project with a DJ body on a CJ (of some kind) chassis.
“Up for sale is my completely stripped down 1956 CJ-3 Willy’s Jeep Project. This has been sitting in my workshop for long enough, so its time for someone else to take it over. I learned a lot on this project – the biggest thing being that I don’t have time for a project like this!
The engine was removed in the fall of 2013 and the block planed and bored by Monarch. The head was planed as well. You get everything you see in the pics. It should be everything you need to rebuild with the exception of a gasket kit and either a new exhaust manifold or a heat riser kit to repair the one that you see on the bench. The body seems to be from a DJ best I can tell, but the chassis and running gear is definitely CJ (i.e. it is 4WD, etc and all the data plates point to CJ).
Contrary to the license plate, this jeep appears to have plenty of time left.
“Took out of service a few years ago it needs Front brakes and fuel sending unit. Been sitting in my garage for about 3 years and ran great when parked for repairs. It’s got all new steering joints, Lost interest after that. Three speed in-line six”
No pics provided. This may be a good find. I’m a little far away to check this out myself.
“At least I think that’s what this is!! I don’t know if anybody will be interested since it’s a pretty specific item.
The soft top, if it’s complete, is brand new still in the box but opened. The roll bars are showing a bit of rust but I think they would clean up just fine.”
No pics provided. Runs.
