• CATEGORIES: Engine, trailer

Roger Martin has some stuff he’s like to sell. It’s best to contact him via phone: 937-477-5270.

  • The red engine came out of a Chris-Craft boat and marine setup it’s an MB engine.
  • There’s a gpw engine rebuild plate with the rods in the mains are turned down, too.
  • I got a couple more civilian engines one more MB engine in there so I guess I got 3 MB engines one gpw engine.
  • I have two bantam trailers I took a picture of one of them and then I have the carry-all trailer its built in Chicago
  • I got transmissions, transfer cases, and all kinds of miscellaneous Jeep parts in that trailer.

1945? CJ-2A Engine Clarkesville, GA $1795


Given the serial number, it seems more likely to me this is an early ’46 based on this chart.


“This is a rebuilt 1945 CJ2A motor. #12211”

GPW Engine Mountlake Terrace, WA $600


It ran many years ago.


“Complete 1940’s Ford GPW engine, current head on engine was a replacement that I installed many years ago. I would like to keep the generator unless its GPW specific.

I installed this in my ’47 CJ2A many years ago, then found out that it was a military engine. Figured it would be a better fit for someone looking to restore a GPW ”

3 L-134s Houlton, ME $200 (for all)


Price is for all.



“I’ve got 3 of them. Asking $200 for the lot.
#1 with block casting # 641087. It has been rebuilt, sometime pre-1975 as that’s when the shop closed. The serial #states it is a 3J motor though. Comes with carb, trans, tc, and whatever other accessories are attached. Serial # 3J-12582.

#2 with 641087 casting is this truck motor, which was kept indoors, said to have been rebuild and never used. Have not verified this. Still has paper stuffed inside the intake and exhaust ports. Serial # 2T-19742 I think. No trans/tc attached

#3 is 638632 block casting, serial # is J-87149. No trans/tc attached.”

Paul spotted this hi-compression head designed for high altitude engines. As I understand it, the “High Altitude” option had a higher compression ratio of 7.4:1, compared with the stock ratio of 6.9:1.


“Hi compression Hi altitude Head for the tough Hurricane 4 motor . It is complete with valve train and has been freshly resurfaced . If you spend time up on the rim or any other place where altitude could be an issue for full performance then this is the answer for you .

Buick 225 Block & Parts Jacksonville, FL $225


Caleb’s hoping to find someone who can use these Buick V6 225 block and parts.

“Selling Dauntless 225 engine block and several parts. I have refurbished the valve covers to include original paint and “Dauntless” jeep decals. I have oil pan that is dented but can be repaired and reused as well as original heavy fly-wheel. I have a few other parts not shown and your welcome to them. Also included is 2 and a partial 3rd cans of green original match paint used on the valve covers.

This is a great V6 block that can be rebuilt to be odd-fire as it was originally or even-fire and makes a great engine in smaller jeep projects. I will accept cash only and am willing to negotiate delivery locally.”

Ford 2.3L w/ T-90(?) Adapter VT $500


No pics provided. This might make a good upgrade.

“Ive got a ford 2.3 turbo motor that I was going to use in a Willy’s jeep swap ended up selling the jeep so Im looking to sell the motor. The motor came out of a 88 thunderbird ran when pulled. Ive also got all the wiring harness’s, ecu’s, and various other parts to complete the motor. I converted it to an aluminum oil pan off an ford ranger 2.3 motor and also put roller rockers in the head from the ford ranger motor, along with a new timing belt. Im sure It’ll have to be torn down further for gaskets and such due to just sitting on a stand in my garage now for a few years. Tough engines to find now, I also have all the adapters and “pinto” bellhousing to go with the motor if your interested so this will adapt to an early cj2a or cj3a with the T-90 transmission.”
