Bryce’s 1953 Truck

• CATEGORIES: Features

1953-truck-bryce

Last winter I was standing in my driveway when a guy I didn’t recognize pulled up and asked if I was the guy who ran eWillys. My mind jumped to three things, was he a reader? Was he a stalker? Or was he someone angry at something posted? Before I was done thinking it through, my mouth was answering, “Yep, that’s me!”

Fortunately, he was a reader. His name was Bryce and it turned out he lived just a few houses down and owned a 1953 truck. I told him I’d like to see his truck sometime. Yesterday, ‘sometime’ finally arrived.

Bryce has owned this truck since the early 2000s after his mother spotted it for him. Recently, it’s needed some restoration, especially in the cab area. He’s redone the upholstery and switched the non-stock bench seat for more comfy bucket seats. He’s got a few things to finish up before it’s road ready again, but when that time comes, he said he’d come by and show it off. So more pics to come!

Chuck’s “new” 1951 CJ-3A Hits the Trails

• CATEGORIES: Features

Chuck bought this CJ-3A just over a week ago and already got it on the trails. He shared a couple great pics of it.

He writes, “The new Willys was in its element this weekend blazing the trail – first ones in cutting and winching downed tress across the trail. I went with two Rubi TJs and kept up no problem. The Willys doing what it was meant to do and doing it exceptionally well!”

“That said, the 51 Willys wasn’t without issues. The front pumpkin was milkshake and rusty. Had to take it apart /clean. Transmission was a little milky. I just changed every single fluid in everything. It also has electrical gremlins. The battery blew up and I spent the night in a auto parts parking lot. New battery, changed the alternator from a three wire to a one wire, did some rewiring and was back on the road with just hand tools. Can’t do that with a new JK or JL! Anyway, put over 300 miles on the Jeep in three days. It was a great adventure. The Jeep did fantastic but I’ll be happy when I get a chance to rip out all the wiring and start over – it really needs it for me to feel it’s a dependable rig.”

These two pics are way above Bass Lake back by Clover Meadow / Granite Creek area called Jackass Meadows in California:

“1970 Hurst Jeepster #1
This could be the rarest production Jeep in the world
It is not known exactly how many of these were built. Some say 100 but I think more have come out of the woodwork.
From research done, there’s no solid record of the Hurst build numbers. There is a registry and this one is the earliest number out there. This may be the one pictured in the showroom photo. I have only seen 2 Hurst Jeepsters with the blue stripe that runs side to side in front of the red stripe. Only the really early ones.
Has the luggage rack
Has the rare Hurst badges (not aftermarket). I tried to have a company rechrome all the original emblems, but they were too pitted. The hurst badges are not pot metal, so they chromed up real nice.
The hood scoop had been stolen years before I got this vehicle. The one on there currently is a reproduction and made to look old. The tach was stollen with the scoop, but the Dixco hood tach is what is put in there now.
The wheels and tires are brand new. Have about 5 miles on the tires. I drove it to a car show and back.
