1947 CJ-2A Whidbey Island, WA $4500

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: .

Has the bobcat hood among other updates.

“This is my 1947 Willys with a 1968 chevy 327-cid engine supposedly out of a 1968 corvette. I am the third owner of the car after the swap which was done by an older man who wanted to get rid of it because it was to fast. It is has a manual choke and there is no key required to run and drive the vehicle. It runs and drives as it sits but as you can hear and see in the video it needs a tune up the passenger side is running rich and sounds like the timing may need to get adjusted. As you can see the body is in rough shape the driver side windshield is broken and the windshield doesnt fold down because the previous owner caulked it. According to the previous owner the engine and transmission where rebuilt but I do not have paperwork to prove it so it was just word of mouth. I love this car it is super fast and fun but don’t have time or space. So 4500 obo open to all offers TEXT with questions would highly recommend trailering it.”

British Airborne Trailer Allentown, PA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $4500.

Seller notes there are only five of these trailers in the US. (Jeep not for sale)

“selling my wwii British airborne trailer(Number 1 Mark II Lightweight 10-cwt Airborne Trailer). I can deliver for extra fee, I am within 3hr to Newark NJ docks for overseas shipping.
There are only five, yes 5 of these trailers in the USA(I know all the other owners)
Trades will be considered, firearms preferred. Was restored about 4-5yrs ago, some very minor holes, I didn’t want to re skin the entire trailer taking away from its originality. Brakes not assembled due to the fact that they had a tendency to actuate while in transit, with a possibility of locking up and possibly creating a accident situation.
A great trailer to complete their british airborne impression.

**Jeep in photos NOT INCLUDED OR FOR SALE!**”

1943 GPW Wateksa, IL $11,000

• CATEGORIES: News

A potential buyer was looking for some feedback on this one. I’ve sent them mine. My biggest issue was those front frame rails. they’ve been extensively patched.

“Here is a nice Jeep from World War 2. GPW engine, T90 transmission, with original front/rear axles. Nice straight body, but to be honest, unsure if original or reproduction?? All the holes on the tub have been welded up, which reproductions come un-drilled if I am correct?? Has 5 combats with new tires, tubes, and flaps. REAL NICE Jeep for the money. DoIRM, so don’t offer me anything less, as the answer is NO. Thanks and Hope you all have a Happy New Year. Have a M100 trailer for additional money if interested??
I will throw in the side/corner handles, the bumperettes, the gas carrier, spare tire carrier with spare and tire,”

1960 CJ-3B Piqua, OH $9950

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(01/01/2017) It’s an ex Navy jeep with a data plate. The plate looks awfully new, so it might be a replacement? I’m just not a fan of the M-151 rims on jeeps.

“Selling restored Jeep CJ3B painted to look like a Navy Jeep
It has new brakes, master cyl. rebuilt, 5 new wheels and Non-directional tires, both differentials rebuilt, trans. rebuilt, engine checked for compression, new rebuilt distributor and new steering wheel.

The Jeep has a NEW body, (never been wet!) and new aftermarket wiring harness. The lettering is vinyl, will come off if you desire.

Driven only in parades since restoration, selling for health reasons. Runs and drives great!
The odometer does not read correct mileage, non-functional when I purchased the Jeep.”

Tweets @RealeWillys

• CATEGORIES: News

A couple years ago I set up a twitter account, only to find out that someone named eWilly Santos. She acquired the eWillys twitter name before I did. So, I named it something slightly different.

Yesterday, I got back on to see if she still was using her account. She doesn’t, but hasn’t deleted it yet (I’ve sent her a tweet asking if I can use it). However, I also realized that folks were trying to give the site credit using @eWillys, but not knowing I didn’t have access to that account. So, I updated the name to @RealeWillys for the time being.

So, if you want to give eWillys credit on twitter, use the handle @RealeWillys

Thanks!

“This truck has been renewed and refreshed in original equipment without disturbing its authenticity, experience, and patina. It served as a service station vehicle for many years in Bellows Falls VT until it turned about 44K miles in 1991. From there is sat, little used, and was discovered in a barn in 2014 where it came to CT and underwent a full restoration of its aging or failed parts and systems. Now it drives several times per week on local trips and has attended local parades and Caffeine & Carburetor shows. The only non-OEM changes have been the addition of three point restraints and the electrification of the wipers. Currently odometer shows just under 47K miles.
Inline 6 cyl 226 engine, three speed transmission, transfer case, front wheel locking hubs, one ton hauling capacity, full fold-down tailgate, three-point restrains. Everything on the truck works and the four wheel drive is amazing – also it drives happier with a half load than empty.

Replaced, repaired, or renewed:
Entire brake system from master cylinder thru lines, slaves, drums.
Front springs, shocks, and some bearings and tie rod ends
Clutch and brake pedals repaired, radiator flushed and new hoses, new speedometer cable, new electric wipers, new passenger window mechanism and glass
Full tune-up, new wires/coil/distributor parts, new fuel pump and filter, new headlamps and turn signal unit, new LED brake lights.
5 new original spec steel wheels, new Cooper AT3 tires in the original proportions. New wiper motor, three point restraints.”
