No Updates This Weekend

• CATEGORIES: Features

Ann’s family will be here this weekend, so the next updates will likely be Monday. So, we’ve been busily tidying up the property, inside and out. However, we did sneak away on Thursday to pickup some items Ann won at a local auction.

The principal purpose was to buy some corral panels (we couldn’t justify buying new ones at $200+ per panel), scoring about 200 feet of 12′ long panels at a great price. But, she also spotted a meat slicer for sale at the auction.

Ever since working at restaurants, I’ve always wanted a quality slicer, but it’s hard to justify the purchase. So, Ann surprised me by winning an auction for a Bizerba GSP HD 13″ slicer! Plus, it came with a stainless steel cart. Priced new (to my surprise) without the cart at between $4k-$7k. Meanwhile, a stainless cart goes for a minimum of $1500 all by itself. So, I was pretty shocked that she snagged the slicer plus a cart for less than $600.  I’d say she scored!

Finally, another Salesbuilder landed on eBay. This one is from January 1950. One of the interesting things to me was the 12-postcard campaign shown on page 17; I’ve only documented a handful of the postcards.

This 1957 FC-150 Brochure is Form No. CS-4-57. I’m sure most of you have seen this brochure, but I hadn’t documented it. I got it off eBay and it came with an unopened FC-170 brochure Form No. CS 5-57 I.S.B. I’ll think I may have another one of those brochures. I’ll have to check my folders.

This is the front of the brochure:

Nick’s Garage Works on a 1947 CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Nick takes a look at this mostly stock 1947 CJ-2A. Note the unusual location the steering box mod (it does not appear mounted against the frame rail; rather, it is slid towards the passenger side six or more inches. I could only catch a few glimpses of it, such as time stamp 20:01-20:03 (there might be others). An additional cross member was welded between the bumper and the standard cross member, then a support was welded between the new crossmember and the bumper. It’s to that support that the steering box is attached.

Year? CJ-2L? Chassis Loon Lake, WA Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: Some additional pics added. 

This chassis appears to have front frame horns and may have a CJ-2A transmission crossmember side-frame-mount setup. Given it’s been lengthened and located in the Spokane area, I’d bet this is a lengthened CJ-2A chassis (or CJ-2L as we’ve come to call them).

CJ-5 Koenig Model 555 Half-top Colfax, WI $500

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts • TAGS: .

Tim’s selling this Koenig model 555 half-cab. The doors do not include the window mechanisms. Colfax, Wisconsin is about 60 miles east of Minneapolis, MN. You can contact him by phone at 715 308 3207.

“I recently bought a second halfcab, a Koenig model 555, not realizing that my half-cab does not interchange with it. I have taken the window mechanisms from that cab, but have no use for the rest of it. It weighs almost 300 pounds, and is obviously bulky, even though it is completely disassembled. I can deliver it within reason”

“1949 Willy’s CJ3A. Runs and drives great. I have an additional motor that came with it when I bought it from a 1960 Jeep, original hood and tow bar. Also, I have an extra set of wheels and tires to go with it. The body is in great shape. Little to no rust. The guy I bought it from wasn’t sure on the year, but said he dropped in an early 1960’s F4-134 F-Head motor. Everything works: four-wheel drive, transmission, lights, speedometer, oil-pressure, etc. Already has the classic license plates.

It is 73 years old, so there’s always room for improvement. The windshield is cracked, no e-brake (I have the housing), gas gauge doesn’t work (needs a new tank sending unit), muffler pipe is cracked and could use a weld, wouldn’t hurt to get a new battery. It’s been converted to a 12V system.

Overall, it’s a great Willy’s that isn’t rusted out. It’s been stored inside. Nice to drive to town or take into the mountains. Awesome hunting rig, just don’t have the time or storage anymore for it. $6,200 OBO. Looking for cash at the moment, no trades.”
