1957? Family of 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I bought this brochure years ago. I’m glad I did, because I think I’ve only seen one other appear on eBay. The is high on my list of favorites. It’s a high quality print job on textured paper. The downside of the textured paper is that I had to manipulate the images to turn them into decent scans, but doing so made the yellows brighter than they ought to be.

This brochure has no date, but given that includes the FC-150 and FC-170 models and labels those models “New”, then my guess is this brochure was published in mid-to-late 1957. Curiously, the brochure also includes the new ‘Hockey Stick’ style 2-Wheel Drive Wagon, but doesn’t mention that the design is new or anything about ‘Maverick’.

“1954 Willys Jeep M170 which is the military vehicle that inspired the CJ-6/Scrambler/Unlimited. It is an M38A1 stretched at the factory 20″ with about a 101″ wheelbase. This particular one appears to be USMC used for mobile radio rather than ambulance, but it has some of the ambulance features like holes in the tailgate and flip passenger seat. The M170 is a pretty rare Jeep as they only made a little over 6000 of them.

It has a good running F-Head 134 Huricane, T-90 3 speed manual, Dana 18 transfer case, original driveshafts and stock axles front and rear with 5.38s. I need to look again, but I think the front is a Dana 25 and rear Dana 44. Transmission is currently not installed and the engine is not currently wired/plumbed, just bolted in place, but I have driven them and they worked fine for me.

Some signs of body work/dents around the drivers door, hood and cowl. The fenders are rough, but they would work if you cut them for tire clearance. Other than that, amazingly rust free for the age including all the various storage boxes this model has.

Comes with a tow bar.”

“For sale is a 1957 WILLYS JEEP that runs and drives great! 4wd and lock outs work, trans shifts like a 70 year old 3 speed. I’ve put many miles on this thing since bringing it back to life, all around town and country driving, maybe 45 mph or so.

CONS:
The original engine at some point has been replaced with a ford 2.3L 4 cylinder out of a 70s pinto( using the original trans/ transfer case and axles) it also shares the brake cylinder of that make. It has a steering column maybe from a pinto? And seat from another vehicle as well. The original fuel cell has been move to the rear for whatever reason. The windshield is broken (I’ve gotten a quote and am willing to pull the frame, do the work and have the new one installed for a small fee something). The body does have some glass / filler in it but VERY solid frame and body, suspension ect.

L-134 Factory Heat Shield

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE II: There’s a reference to the shield in a 1943 Tech manual (pg 23). Still no part number.

power-unit-pe-183-a-heat-shield-diagram-lores

UPDATE: Another heat shield on an industrial WWII L-134 spotted today (at bottom).

Barney Goodwin from Barney’s Jeep Parts shared a pic of this rare heat shield (he has several in his parts inventory). It mounts between the carb and the intake manifold. We’ve been trying to document a part number, pics, or other evidence of its use. The only evidence so far are two industrial engines with heat shields.

Here’s the heat shield Barney has in stock. Anyone have a part number for this?

l-134-heat-shield-barney-goodwin-parts

As sometimes happens, when I know what to look for, things sometimes pop up. In this case, after writing this post, I ran across a WWII Industrial engine for sale in Santa Cruz that has a heat shield installed. It’s hard to tell how far the wing sticks out.

heat-shield-industrial-engine-wwii

When searching the industrial equipment archives, an image from 2015 of a civilian industrial engine with a heat shield with a heat shield popped up. The wing is more easily seen. Whether this heat shield is the same as Barney’s or not I couldn’t say for sure:

1954? CJ-3B Brochures on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I believe these two CJ-3B brochures were put out in 1954. I *think* the red one was published initially and then the yellow one, without the KW and some minor changes, was put out as a revised brochure.

This four-page brochure is interesting in that it includes a reference to KW on the front page (Unfortunately, it’s priced at $26). I’d guess that means it was produced in 1954. I have some similar wagon brochures that don’t have the KW stamp from 1954, dated based on the brochure’s claim the the wagons were now available with the ‘new’ Super Hurricane engine. That engine first appeared in the 1954 model.
