1965 Flattie Baltimore, MD $9500

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Other 4x4s

This custom 2WD creation is currently being peddled as a 1949 jeep. The axles appear to be from a DJ-5B circe 1972. The centered pumpkin in the rear should help verify this era of rear axle. The body is a reproduction body. The frame could be something from 1965, hence the title. but the DJ-5As weren’t manufactured until 1967.

Just a Couple Updates Sunday

• CATEGORIES: Features

A couple updates for Sunday. We’ve had family in town this weekend, so things are busy around here.

One family member brought over these locally roasted beans, so we decided to create our own Yipao scene. We couldn’t have done it without the jeep, a gift from Jerry Huber last year, and the Colombian poncho, a gift years ago from Sebastian Lobo-Guerrero (8 years ago … I had a little less gray hair!).
