1943 Willys-Overland Fire Pump Little Rock, AR $400

This Willys-Overland Fire Pump needs an L-head, but it seems an unusual item. It looks like the trailer was not original to the unit, based on these two photos from G503:

willys-fire-pump1 willys-fire-pump2

https://www.facebook.com/groups/WillysSwapMeet/permalink/2800695516870376

“1943-dated Willys American fire pump. US Army Corps of Engineers, 250 GPM.
“Willys American” cast into the pump body. Enclosure is gone.
The base is the fuel tank. Mounted on a 2 wheel trailer chassis with antique tires and 2” ball hitch.
No suspension and old tires so needs to be hauled on a trailer.
Has WWII OD paint under the red paint.
I removed the engine and bellhousing for use in WWII jeep restoration. Selling with the engine front plate, manifolds & carburetor, governor, oil filter & bracket, fan and fan shroud and generator. You will need to supply a Willys L-134 motor and bellhousing to put this back in operation.”

Baier Jeep Lighters Sold on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

These are two pretty good examples of Baier Jeep Lighters that sold on eBay yesterday. Before I get to them, I want to show what alternative versions of both jeeps look like. I’m not sure which version is rarer or worth more.

There was another version of this lighter produced that had the map on the room etched into the roof, as seen here (see ebay for more pics). It was accompanied by a smaller jeep with Weisebden etched into the cowl and a bottom where the door is usually etched. This is priced at $275, but I was received an unsolicited offer of $225 for both:

Now for the jeep lighters that sold on eBay yesterday. This first one is the jeep lighter/ash tray combo and it sold for $113.50 (plus $12.70 shipping):
