Doesn’t run at the moment, but will run if fluids added, at which point the price also increases ….

“(If I do put fluids in it and test drive it price will increase dramatically as it’s a driving project at that point)

MOTOR DOES RUN WELL! This is a real WW2 Willys MB. It is titled as a 46 Jeep. It is a project. It has a ford 200ci Straight 6 that starts and is turn key, but I have not driven it yet. It needs brakes redone and new tires first before being driveable. (Will include some used 31 inch tires) I’ve removed all the old 6v wiring and have it striped for you to start running your own. I was going to start chopping it all up to make a ratrod, but I figured I would give somebody the chance too bring it back to life before hand. I am open to cash offers, bring a trailer and come give it a good home.”

1954 CJ-3B Arvada, CO $3000

• CATEGORIES: News

It is a project with an 1972 drive-train. Sounds like a great project and, given the Warn winch, Koenig hardtop, and tires, this looks like a good price.

“This was my project jeep that needs to be completed. I am unable to finish this project because of health problems. This jeep has a V8 289 mustang motor with a 1972 drive train and 11in drum breaks. Two fuel tanks that combine to make 25gal. Warren 8000 winch electric that works great. Two bucket seats. Hard top with role bar. Original body minimal rust. It needs quite a bit of work to fish. Asking 3000 or reasonable offer. I prefer call but I can text and email. 303 nine0six four8one9

1956 CJ-5 Quincy, MA $12,999

It looks like this has a once piece grill/fenders? The fenders have an indentation along each side. Gives the jeep a little different look.

Just a Handful of Updates

Just a handful of updates today, as I spent most of yesterday driving to Seattle and back.

No Updates Monday

• CATEGORIES: News

I took Sunday off, so no updates for Monday.

Late Sunday night Washington’s Governor shutdown all restaurants/bars, so we’ve plunged deeper into a unique time. Thankfully, Ann and I are well suited for hunkering down for a month (though I’m estimating nothing will be back to ‘normal’ in the US for another 8 weeks at least). As long as we have internet, and I see no reason we won’t continue to have internet, I’ll post eWillys updates.

Our biggest issue will be Ann’s mother-in-law, as her health continues to deteriorate. In ordinary times, her last ditch opportunity to live would be through the use of a ventilator to help her breath. However, if, like Italy, ventilators become a scarce, she will likely be denied the use of one, which will seal her fate sooner rather than later.

If you want to track the rise of COVID-19, I’d recommend this site: https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 (During my time in Silicon Valley, I worked with ESRI and its ARCGIS software, which is what powers the overlays on the map .. they have some cool tech). As test kits get dispersed, I expect US numbers will rise quickly.

For those considering going to Easter Week in Moab, according to my son, Utah’s Governor is urging Grand County to shut it down (part of his job is to work with cities and counties of Utah to manage emergencies like this). There have also been votes within Moab to shut this year’s event down. FCA has already pulled out this year. So, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t take place.

2020 FC-Round Up Cancelled

• CATEGORIES: News

Jesse and Andrea made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s FC Round Up due to COVID-19. I believe it the right decision, not because I feared becoming ill, but because I have two health-compromised living with me, so I must be vigilant about not bringing it home. Because iof that, I was about to contact them and explain that I could not attend, which was especially hard because I was going to attend with my son.

No Updates Tuesday

• CATEGORIES: News

We made it home at 5pm on Monday. There were frequent stops, as Ms. Page came equipped with a ‘starter’ bladder, which is pretty small. However, to her credit, she never peed in the jeep. So, kudos to her.

On our drive through Montana we saw several feral jeeps along the highway in varying conditions. I also ran across a mid 1950s wagon in downtown Bozeman, kitty corner from the https://www.facebook.com/LaPaBozeman/ (which was very good). However, we were in a rush and the weather was snowy and cold through much of Montana, so I did not get any pics of them.

Everything should be back to normal Wednesday morning.

Just a Couple Updates for Thursday

• CATEGORIES: News

Just a couple updates for Thursday.

I’ve been completing the set up of my 6 year old new-to-me MacBook Pro 15″ laptop computer, so that distracted me from updates yesterday. My 8 year old 17″ MacBook Pro laptop encountered screen problems after three years of use (I bought it NOS in 2016 as a backup … the failing screen is a known issue, but I’m past the warranty), so I had to return to my 10 year old 17″ MacBook Pro laptop, which is still doing pretty well (except for a stiff touch pad and just a tad slow), until I could get my new-to-me laptop up and running. Now, I can turn to fixing my 8 year old laptop for a backup computer.
