Testing Out the Complete Race Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: .

“Leftovers” with the mocked up name. I don’t like the angled bracket I made at the step. I may just got with two bolts and two washer to keep the body in place rather than the bracket.

Yesterday, I attached the remaining netting, roof, and body parts to the race jeep, only to discover I needed to cut a couple small parts from the floor that were too wide for the body (nothing a quick sawz-it-all couldn’t fix).

The hood requires four bolts to attach it, as I need to make sure it stays secure. Five additional bumpers help keep the hood in place.

It’s hard to test the speed on these short jaunts. I really don’t want to tear up the grass too much. In addition, I don’t have it in four wheel drive, again so I don’t tear up the grass too much. The next time I test it, I will wear ear plugs, because when you hit the gas, it gets loud in the cockpit!

Now it’s time for some helmet shopping!

1947 CJ-2A Hays, KS $5000


The top on this is an interesting one. I thought it was a Porter & Reed (the front portiion appears identical (maybe built from that design?), but it has angled edges along th sides of the top rear rather than rounded ones. Another Kanas-based aircraft-related manufacturer of hardtops was Blue Star, but this doesn’t look like one of theirs.

“95% bone stock 1947 Willys CJ 2a Jeep. Orig flathead 4 cylinder engine w/3 SPD trans and stock transfer case. Engine has not been started for approx 20 years but turns freely by hand. Body in decent shape w/75 years worth of dings, dents and rust. The hat channels are needing the most work. The top (aluminum)is a unique “military look” that, according to original owner, was built and installed by a Wichita aircraft manufacturer in 1948. The interior seats, including the rear seat, are correct. The transmission and transfer move into their gears freely but the unit seems to leak an excessive amount of fluid into the driveway. The engine also seeps oil from the oil pan drain plug. Frame is in excellent condition showing only a slightly bent front bumper end. This is a very original 1947, the perfect candidate for a resto. Currenly registered and titled. Numerous extra parts included: f & r axles, trans / trans case etc. Rolls freely on old tires.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.

(07/01/2023) While it has three doors, according to the seller it does not appear to be a hyrail or Fairmont build. So, the history of it isn’t clear.

“Very rare 1951 Willys wagon with the third door passenger side. It’s not a railroad. Or Fairmont built There are no holes in the floor for the towers.  so if you know anybody or any company who needs a Sema build that was my plans”

(06/29/2023) Runs with an f-head. Not sure how much value is in the parts jeep. No titles.

“Nice little Jeep Willy’s that comes with a parts Jeep. Has been a good running Jeep for the past two years for me and my family on the farm. It has a new carburetor and I put an electronic distributor in it. Things that will need to be fixed is a brake line, an ignition since I lost the key in a recent move. The starter was rebuilt and the shop that rebuilt pit the wrong gear on it so it hangs up on the flywheel. Last summer I would pull start and it would stay running all day if I wanted to. Haven’t tried to start this year yet but it should be fine. Do not have title”

Ann says, “I like it!”

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .


I installed the new master cylinder for the clutch. The pedal is a bit more stiff due to the larger bore, but it does the job. I wanted Ann to test it to make sure she could operate the clutch, so she took it for a cruise (and kept the speed down to keep the grass intact).

John Bean FireTruck Ad FC-150

UPDATE: Here’s a better image of a Bean Model 200F from a November 1958 ad on eBay



This post was from August 22, 2012: I show two ads below.  John Bean appears to have built both a FC-150 Model 200-F Fire Jeep, and a FC-150 Model-FJ.  I don’t know what the difference between the two is.

1. This blown up portion of the ad shows the ad for the Model 200-F from a 1960 Ad

2. This ad is from 1959.  I can’t tell what model is shown.  These are two of 12 pages in the brochure.
