1954 M-170 Mesa, AZ $16,000

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-170 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $16,000. They may take $20,000 for both this and the project (shown in the post below). 

Per Joe-in-Mesa: “Jun’s dream was to restore/finish the M170 project as the new MASH jeep due to it’s rot-free body, then outfit it with all the ambulance gear, canvas and medical supplies.  This would leave a buyer with a “leftover” solid, running M170 to sell or do the body work or just enjoy for off-roading fun in a stretched jeep.”

This beautiful M-170 is in great shape. Contact Jerry Bubolz at 480 227 8876 if interested.

“Fully Outfitted M170 Field Ambulance. June 1954. #11414. 24V.
Includes all stretchers, medical box, field operating table, and tons
of medical related equipment.
Starts, runs, stops. Good tires. Solid running gear. Drive anywhere.
$2,400 of recent outer canvas and canvas seats from OD Cloth.”

“My family has an old army jeep, it’s an old relic that has been very hard for us to let go. It’s a 1947 Willys CJ-2a that’s been sitting in our garage for 30+ years. Was my great uncles who was in the war and actually used this jeep! I wish we had the funds and resources to get this amazing piece of history drivable but it’s not realistic right now. The body is intact and everything is original. It doesn’t run and needs a complete overhaul because of how long its been sitting in our garage.
Fortunately, there are a lot of manuals online on how to do it.

I would love to see this jeep find a home to someone who would take good care of it and someone who wouldn’t mind staying in contact with my family so we could see the process of it being restored. and possibly have a ride in it once it’s finished being restored :)”

It’s Official …

• CATEGORIES: Features

No looking back now; It’s official (with only five days to spare before our final contract expired). The World Headquarters of eWillys has been upgraded from a cramped bedroom-sized office to a full-on shop on five acres (and of course a house, too .. well two houses and an apartment).

So, other than some videos and a few jeep listings when I have some time, I’ll be busy doing other things.

We are located just outside of Prosser, Washington, which isn’t where we were aiming (Walla Walla is where we’d hoped to land), but the layout and potential of this place should serve us well.

We won’t actually start moving into the house for a few days until the previous owners leave. They are painting their new place, so needed extra time to finish it up. The former owner of the Wilgus house was a life-long employee turned manager of Les Schwabs (and knew Les as well) and seems to know all kinds of goings-on about the area, so he’ll be a good resource.

But wait … I hope to have another, unexpected surprise for Monday morning. For now, here are a few pics:

2804-s-wilgus-prosser-new-24-type

Yes, it is only photoshopped onto the building (at this point).

2804-s-wilgus-prosser-new-20

The building to the right of the shop was a mother-in-law building house (requiring a special county variance). Now, it is considered a “shed” with a bathroom, thanks to a overzealous county employee (long story). Anyway, it will be Ann’s sewing retreat and guest “shed”.

Here’s an overhead shot. As you can see, we have a nice chunk of pavement for a meet-n-greet (or a really long game of basketball).

wilgus-house

The back half of the property is full irrigated. Last year they grew hay. We probably won’t do much with it this year, except maintain it (and test out the jeeps back there).

We’ll have some better pics once as we get settled.

“Up for sale is a M38 Willys jeep, not a 4×4, this is a custom made frame with an original M38/willys body. powered by a VW 1600 cc engine rebuild with 38k miles. because of the engine is registered as 1964 VW. somebody put a lot of time, brain and money in this very cool toy. bought it for my daughter but she wasn’t comfortable with stick shift (specially VW is very different) My mechanic got the head lights and blinkers working after I bough it,

I got a new set of tires trough the pandemic and had a friend installed but they need to be balanced. needs the oil gasket replaced to fix a small leak. I was going to replace the radio but I did not have the guts to cut the very nice dash so I left the old one from the 80″s alone. I purchased a new set of front and rear shock that I will be glad to pass to new owner. It was my daily driver in town (Ukiah) last summer and got lots of smiles, tombs up and compliments. even do it has the 1600 cc engine I do not recommend it for use in freeway. front wheel disc brakes. I got some extra parts like a set of canvas doors and a couple other things that will go with the car.no trades, no low ballers nor scammers”
