“Fat Boy” Stock Car Mockup

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features, Racing

Something a little different …. According to Autoeveolution.com, there’s been an increasing number of “Jeep Willys builds” at drag strips. A digital artist, Yasid Oozeear, decided to render a drag jeep with a WWII look (this is an illustration, not an actual build).

1946 CJ-2A “Nellybelle II” Cave Creek, AZ $29,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This was for sale in June of 2019 for $10k. Now it’s on sale for $29,500. This is a replica that reportedly was built for the museum. It wasn’t used on the actual show, based on the ads for this jeep that we’ve previously seen. The original Nelly Belle sold for $116,500 in 2010 and, subsequently, for $38,400 in 2018.

(02/22/2019) This was originally for sale in 2010.

https://classiccars.com/listings/view/1317090/1946-willys-cj2a-for-sale-in-north-scottsdale-arizona-85331

(from the 2019 ad) “This 1946 CJ-2A is an exact replica of the Jeep Nellybelle used in the Roy Rogers’ TV Show of the 1950’s. It was commissioned by Roy Jr., aka Dusty Rogers. It was used at the Roy Rogers Museum for the children to climb into so that the original Nellybelle would not get all that “abuse”. We have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as pictures we took with Dusty and his son, Dustin. We are also friends with the fine gentleman who built this jeep for Dusty.

It runs well, smokes a little (it’s old enough and Dusty said it always smoked).”

There’s a lumber rack, and the trailer axle is standard Willys 5 on 5.5” bolt pattern just like the vintage jeeps. She’s perfect for hauling whatever, or whoever. Use it for camping, glamping, personal, or business use.

A great chance to haul your stuff to the Swap Meet coming up- pull up in Puyallup with this thing and park it in your stall and you’re ready to go!”
