Transportation Parts Co. “Seal Test” Hubs

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: More on Transportation Parts Company thanks to Barney Goodwin of Barney’s Jeep Parts.

Barney wrote, “I hope this helps for your question on Transportation Parts Co.  I put together a little display. Those of us in business who have older inventories have Transportation boxes peeking out at us on the shelves. Shown below are several vintage items from our inventory including a whole tray of gauges.


The name SEAL TEST® is owned today by someone in Europe who produces quality parts supplying to dealers. An example is the shiny box to the right behind the tray.

In our library we have several of their catalogues and can be valuable quick references which are very accurate compared to some today. Inside the catalogue shown in the back of the display and which I’ve put in a ring binder for frequent use, I have copied the introduction which gives a good, brief history of the company in their own words.

Original Post November 27, 2022: This photo was posted to Facebook by Quinton. These private-labeled “Seal Test” Dualmatic lever-style hubs were sold out of the Transportation Parts Co, a jeep parts reseller out of Huntington, New York.

I’m sure someone knows more about Transportation Parts (or even dealt with them in the past).

Hobby Lobby Toy Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

John let me know that there is another Hobby Lobby toy jeep. Made of metal, it is 10.5″ long, about 4″ wide and long, which is a pretty good size, and currently half price at $12.99. The grille is a little different, probably to avoid trademark issues. It is reminiscent of the Italian Campagnola:

1959 FC-170 Cadott, WI $3240

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Seems worth a look. Includes a non-running FC-170 and an extra rolling chassis.

1959-fc170-cadott-wi21 1959-fc170-cadott-wi2

“1959 Willys FC170. Complete non running with title. Engine turns over but has Marvel Mystery oil dumped down the spark plug holes to prevent seizing during storage. The transmission shifter easily goes through all the gears and the tcase shifts as it should. The truck does have rust as it was a grounds maintenance vehicle for many years and it is from the 50s after all. I do still have the snowplow and it is included in the sale. Also included is a spare roller without a body. It has a Ford V8 a Willys transmission and tcase and the axles. It also has helper springs, heavy duty reinforced bumpers and bed braces should you really want to build a heavy FC truck, say to haul a vintage camper or such. I have new in box a 12v conversion and tune up kit along with a new in box complete wire harness. I would be willing to do a partial trade for a 241OR transfer case for a Wrangler, or an overdrive unit or a rear 540 PTO box for a CJ5.”

1979 J-20 Aurora, IL $1800

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Given the plow setup and the fact that this runs, it seems worth a look if you need. a plow jeep.

“1979 J-20 Jeep. Runs and drives. Plow works. Transmission was serviced last year. Used to plow parking lot of shop since 2008. Leaks power steering fluid. Brakes need attention. Truck is rough, don’t expect a gem.”

1950 CJ-3A Poway, CA $11,000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(11/11/2022) This CJ-3A may be worth a look.

1950-cj3a-poway-ca6 1950-cj3a-poway-ca7 1950-cj3a-poway-ca8 1950-cj3a-poway-ca9

“I’m selling my 1950 Willys CJ-3a, it was my first car and daily driver for 15 years, but now I think it’s time to move on.

Much of the drivetrain has been rebuilt, but it has taken a beating from years of off-roading and daily driving, so it’ll need some work. It has a 30% overdrive from Herm the overdrive guy, which can get you comfortably to about 60-65mph (I don’t recommend driving it on the freeway though). Has new powder coated steel wheels and NDT’s. New transfercase, windshield, seats & upholstery, gauges, comes with lots of spare parts, manuals, etc…

The body is in OK condition, but has thick Bondo in a few places, my friend peeled away the Bondo on the rear right wheel well where the spare used to be. Most of the photos aren’t super recent, so if there’s anything you’d like a photo of in particular let me know and I can send you a fresh photo, or if you’d like to come take a look at it you can contact me at the number in the listing (no texts please). I like people to know what they are getting when I sell, so I’ll do my best to let you know of any problems or particularities that it has.

My Jeep was featured on the cover of the 2015 Kaiser Willys catalog.

I’d really like it to go to someone who will enjoy it as much as I have, I’m really not looking forward to selling it but I’m looking to get an MG TD for commuting and more consistent gas mileage and I can’t afford to buy another car without selling one.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Culver City, CA $12,000


Appears solid. Nearly ‘all’ original.

“Up for sale all original 1946 Willys CJ2A. Runs and drives super smooth. Recently work done on all oils replaced, transmission gasket changed etc. Very powerful torque, easily goes 45 mph, it could go 55 mph but didnt try it. I restored it partially after getting from a ranch sale last year it was used on the farm and around town as a work horse. Great original patina and sound. 4 WD works nice as well. I wouldnt change anything on this beauty. Electrical bulbs might need to replaced, thats all.”

1947 CJ-2A Carmichael, CA $5000


Has a few mods, but could be a good price.

1947-cj2a-carmichael-ca6 1947-cj2a-carmichael-ca7 1947-cj2a-carmichael-ca8 1947-cj2a-carmichael-ca9

“This Willys was handed down to me by my father so I know its past 65 years of history. We did a frame off mini restoration 2 years ago and at that time I powder coated almost every inch of it. There is zero rust anywhere which is easy to verify due to the powder coating. I replaced the suspension, fuel lines and all electrical. Since I was doing the electrical I went ahead and put in the switch box and off road lights plus wench. This engine is in excellent condition and has never (not started up) even after sitting for years at a time. It will need wheels and tires and several things leak fluids as expected from a 75 year old vehicle. But nothing major. This price is firm and I do not “Need” to sell this thing so no low balls. It will also be out in the front of the house for my garage sell this weekend if you want to come by and see it.”
