“For sale, Is an amazing 1954 Jeep Willy M170 Frontline Ambulance army jeep, these were also used for radio communication as well. This model is basically a stretched and beefed up version of the more common M38A1 model. Many of the parts are the same and can still be found. Around 4500 of these models were made.

-This Jeep has clean title and registration.
-Vehicle did run and drive. I put an electronic ignition. Still have the original Distributer (as well as several NOS parts). Aside from electronic ign electrical system still 24vdc.
– This Jeep has around 18000 miles. Some body damage.
– Tires are 31″ Goodyear MTR. They still hold air.

“M 170, build date 3/54, serial # 10023.
I purchased this vehicle a few years ago purely to save it from the Vermont elements. When I bought it the engine was lightly stuck, needed brake work and the fuel system was contaminated. This was my first Willys project but I didn’t have a place to get after it, I parked in my shed for a year while a shop was built, I sprayed the underbody with Fluid Film to stop any corrosion until I could get to it. It has lived in a heated shop since the shop was completed. I will describe everything to the best of my abilities, there are many pictures, if I don’t cover something please reach out and I will tell you what I know. Keep in mind I am not an accomplished mechanic nor am I a body man, the good news is that I am fully aware of this fact. I didn’t rip into anything I had no business touching, I had professional help with the carburetor and engine. The best news of all is that I don’t own a welder. Continue reading

“Selling my m170/CJ6 $4000 Hanover, MA
One of the most unique jeeps I’ve ever seen. It was built in the 80s by a local father and son as a show car and later used around their property as a plow truck.

Dauntless V6 t14 3 speed transmission Dana 18 transfer case offset dana 44 rear and a 27 front both with 11” drums from late 60s or 70 CJ5. Frame is in excellent shape body is good but has some dents and small about of rot on the front floors. M170 door opening converted to cj6 and obviously the commando grill.

It was running on Jerry can and drove onto my trailer at my buddies shop but didn’t start today when I went to unload it. Haven’t had time to mess with it. My plan was to go back to military m170 and I have sourced a front and rear end, engine, transmission, transfer case, set of 5 correct wheels and a short nose cj5 front clip. That can be negotiated for. I’d like to see it passed on to someone who “gets” it.”
