1946 CJ-2A Desert Hills, AZ $4500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.

Not all stock, as it’s got a different steering column, its missing the parking break, the rear bow holder is gone, the rear wheel wells have been cut, and new bumpers have been added. Looks ready for some desert driving.

Tim & Cathy’s 25th Anniversary in Hawaii

• CATEGORIES: Features

Tim must have a wonderful wife. The pair of them spent their anniversary in Hawaii driving around in a jeep and even dropped by a military show. Now that’s love :-)

Time wrote, For our 25th wedding anniversary we went to Oahu, Hawaii.    Here are some photos of the trip and of course Jeeps. We rented a Jeep and we got this four door wrangler unlimited sport, -white.  We took the roof top off and drove all over the island. It was fun to drive,and  we got 18 mpg that week with gas at $2.50 /gal. Only complaint is that that wrangler really needed new brakes. The photo of us and wrangler at Kaena point, that’s as far as the road went west.

After the road washed out that area was turned into a hiking trail so now cannot drive a loop around the island. We visited the USS Missouri  on living history day in recognition of 72d anniversary of its launch.  Here we found a WWII Jeep on display along with a Dodge WC 51 and we met members of the Hawaii MVPA.  We also met GEN MacArthur and toured the ship.   We wanted to drive from Waianae up the Kolekole pass to Schofield barracks but the road was closed to traffic and has been for some time.     The black and white photo was in the USO stars in Honolulu during WWII, not sure what vehicle i”

This battery powered jeep was built by J. F. Scott of Seattle. It weighed 100lbs and can reach 10mph. Based on all the kids, it doubles as a personnel carrier, too!

1961? DJ-3A Surrey Angels Camp, CA $6500


Looks like this is missing the front bumper and the front frame rails have twisted slightly. Based on the serial number I’d say this is a 1960 (56337 17492)  if I am not mistaken.
