“(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.”

I bought a 46″ heavy duty Husky tool chest a few days ago. That innocent purchase led to the complete rearrangement of my mother-in-laws garage, but out of the deal she asked that I combine her tools with mine (another sign that she knows she doesn’t have too long left). So, yesterday I drove to my parents to get a set of industrial shelving, but then detoured to Moses Lake … so, I was too busy playing to do updates for this morning. Updates will resume Sunday.

Next week I’m breaking my quarantine and heading down to visit my kids in Salt Lake. My oldest just bought his first house, so I’m bringing him a variety of tools. So, updates may be sparse over Labor Day Weekend.

Have a good weekend!

Late 1940s Willys-Overland Dealer Ad

• CATEGORIES: News

Joel shared this late 1940s ad from the Maine Willys Sales Company of Augusta, Maine. Note the Willys Sign in the background with the early “J” logo. It appears that Maine’s State Foresty Department was an early enthusiast of the new jeep trucks. I was unable to locate the this ad using newspapers.com, so cannot date it at this time.

May 1961 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: News

Just one post today. This is the last of the Jeep News papers I bought last month. Hopefully, I can locate some more soon.

This May 1961 issue contains ALOT of Surrey and Dispatcher jeeps: Ice Cream delivery, Pepe ‘actors’, and fleet transportation are just some of the uses. The Kellogg contest fills an entire page with lots of pics. The Truth or Consequences Jeep Derby results are highlighted. Even the Utah Jeep Posse’s are mentioned.

The ‘Jeep’ Fleet line of ads look interesting (page 3) ; I don’t know much about those.

1965 Willys Interlagos Hollywood, CA BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: News

Blaine shared this rare Brazilian-made Willys Interlagos for auction.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1962-willys-overland-interlagos/

“This 1965 Willys Interlagos Berlinette is one of fewer than 900 Brazilian-made examples built under license from Renault between 1961 and 1966, and was imported to the US at an unknown point. A refurbishment was initiated under previous ownership but remains uncompleted, and the engine has not been started. Several items of trim are missing and the fuel, brake, and cooling systems will need to be recommissioned according to the selling dealer, who acquired the car from the estate of its previous owner in January 2020. This Willys Interlagos is offered with a new front windshield and rear window, spare parts, and a clean California title listing it as a 1962 model.”
