Rob in NC is Seeking a Few Items

• CATEGORIES: News

Rob is hoping to find the following items for his CJ-2A. The closer to North Carolina the better, but he is willing to ship for the right items. Email him at rob @ humblerootslandscaping.com (remove spaces around the @ before emailing him). If you’d like him p#, comment below and I will email it to you.

  1. A half (or possibly full) cab for a CJ-2A in good shape.
  2. Some 1950s 10 spline hubs. He currently has later model Warn hubs, but hopes to find something earlier to better reflect the age of his CJ-2A. Examples of what he is looking for include Early Dualmatic (lever-type), Early Cutlas, Early Warn, Free-Lock, Kelly, or Husky hubs  are what he is hoping to find.
  3. Finally, he’d love to get a Capstan winch (complete setup), but understands how rare such an item is.

Year? M-38 Avondale Estates, GA $4000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

A tree knocked this M-38 loopy. Thanks to Tom for spotting it. The seller is more optimistic about saving this than I am.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1020883911908057

year-m38-ga1 year-m38-ga2 year-m38-ga4

“Late model Willys M38 military jeep. Tree fell and it sat for a few years. Not running. All original except for fuel pump, exhaust and gas tank. Missing forward battery box. 5 original military safety beaded wheels. Dents can be beaten out with hammer and dolly (if I can do it, anyone can). I’ll throw in an extra correct windshield, correct seat frames, hood, tail gate, steering column with box and an extra body if needed. 24 volt. Engine will not turn by fan blades and nut is missing from crank. I’ve not removed the head but I believe block is standard bore. Waterproof bell housing. Cuno oil filter, depot installed rear corner plate. and appears to have all OEM bolts. Rust through on floor pans (small) and passenger step but an easy repair. Bed is in great condition, minor surface rust on fenders, grill, and side panels. Original Willys manufacturer’s data plate. No title. If your looking to restore a M38 with correct original parts, you found it. Not perfect by any means but you’ll have a correct OEM M38 . Additional photos available.”

1971 Jeepster Commando “Hurst Edition” Lexington, SC eBay

Bill spotted this neglected Hurst Edition Jeepster Commando. The bid price is $2900 with a day + to go. More discussion on this Jeepster here.

View all the information on ebay

1971-hurst-jeepster-commando-sc

“This is a 1971 Super rare Hurst edition Jeepster Commando. From research there is apparently only about 150 of these made that were sent to the HURST company to have some graphics added, hood scoop, tach and few other accessories. This one is a manual transmission and from all appearances appears to the original transmission which makes this one even possibly more rare. The trim tag and markings on the firewall are consistant with Hurst edition markings. The emblems on the hood are there, but are pitted a little bit.

I had hoped to get to this Jeep, but just not going to happen and it needs to go to a worthy home to get fully saved. It does need a full gone through or restoration. Almost all the pieces are there, The motor is in it, but has not been turned over. The radiator is not in place. The original hood scoop is not there but I do have a new old stock hood but it is not in perfect condition. Certainly usable for a restoration but not perfect. We could not find or have the original tach that was mounted in the hood scoop. Continue reading

“Cool little flatty with some rust but alot of good going for it to restore or just have years of fun.
First it has all the original date plates (vin tags) including the brass one on the dash, straight Willys hood, tailgate and windshield.
The full hardtop and doors are aluminum and made by Sears this one is in really good shape considering it’s age, not perfect but all the parts for the “roll” up windows are intact and 2 of the glass pieces are perfect, the others are easy to match and source.
The mechanical winch works.

The Jeep has most of it’s original parts including 16″ matching steel wheels. The motor has been changed to a Buick “Dauntless” V6 and (ironically) it doesn’t run yet. I am soaking the pistons before I try to crank it over. It is full of oil without water and looks good under the valve covers etc. “Ran when parked” according to the 81 y/o guy that has owned it since 1979. It has a Warn OD, original T-90 / Dana Spicer 18 transfer case and 25/41 axles. The floors have rust in the front footwells and in the tool box (from sitting) but the back floor, wheels wells, fenders, hood, grill, etc are sound. There are a few more spots of rust throughout the body but it’s a CA car so nothing you can’t work out.

Come take a look I have a few Jeeps for sale as I realize I can’t keep them all. Make an offer while you are here with cash in your hand if you want me to think you are serious. Ask me if “it’s still available” and I won’t sell it to you.”

1959 Willys Jeep FC-150
Forward Control 4×4
12 Volt System

This 1959 Jeep Forward Control was part of a private Willys collection in California for over 20 years. Prior to the 2000’s it’s only other known residence was Nevada. As far as can be seen, this little truck has had an exclusively dry desert life before recently coming to the northwest to be put back on the road. Built by Willys, its cab over engine layout was based on the Jeep CJ-5 carriage with a short 81″ wheelbase and 74″ bed. This being the rarest year for the FC150, 1959 saw just 1,500 built. It’s equipped with the 134ci Hurricane inline-four, paired with a three-speed manual transmission and a three-speed transfer case. The seats were reupholstered and paint retouched as well as it appears that the engine was overhauled along with other systems sometime ago in its past. All sealed up with no leaks.

“We bought a ranch a couple years ago that had a variety of farm/construction equipment and junk on the property. We’ve gradually sold off or disposed of most of it. We’ve been on the fence however about what to do with this bizarre little rig; a WWII-era jeep that has a trencher built onto it. Part of me wants to hold on to it and take it back to a stock jeep. On the other hand, how many projects can a body accomplish in a limited number of years? Thus, if the right person were to offer, say, $6,500. in cash, I would part with it.
I have not tried to start it, though everything else on the property that was parked 15 years ago when the ranch was abandoned, has been made to run..
We are well off the grid, east of Minden, NV. Phone reception is poor. If you have an interest, please text me and we can arrange a visit.
