Craig spotted this nice looking Gaz.

“GAZ 69 Russian 4×4 4 cyl. Jeep 134 motor , miles unknown. runs and drives . Registered as an antique in NH, no title because of age. Have owned this for a few years and had alot of fun. As with any old vehicle it is easy to tinker with. The body and frame is solid ,stored off road in the winter. Call with any questions.”

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


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


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


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


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

Just a Few Updates Tuesday


UPDATE: Ann was in quite a bit of pain last night. The pain was so intense that she could barely talk. After an hour or so at the VA’s ER, the doc was able to alleviate the sharp pains she felt in Ann’s head and left eye, but they could not locate the source of the problem. A CT scan revealed nothing. 

We returned home this evening. The pain is much less (she is joking around), but she still can’t sit up for long without nausea (I made her a big bed in the back of the jeep). So, we will see how things progress …

Just a few updates today. We are at the hospital in Seattle and coverage is spotty. Ann has an issue and we are trying to figure out what is happening.

Ann and I have been busy with Rusty today. We removed (no easy task given the damage and rusty bolts) the grille and are ready to straighten it. Ann removed the rear tire, lights, and funky rear tow setup. We bought a battery, changed oil, etc. We learned that the starter spins and the engine turns over smoothly. The fuel pump works, too, but there’s no spark to the plugs just yet (seems to be the points — coil is working).

Here are just a few pics.


The rust areas in the center are rusted through. The cargo area floor has a similar sized rust problem. Both appear patchable. Ann did all this work.


This is my wife’s blood. I told her to stop bleeding on the jeep :-)


My ignition didn’t come with a key and wasn’t stock anyway, so I ditched it. Instead, I rigged up this fender mounted dash with an ignition switch and button starter.

I Was So Tired Last Night That …


…. I managed to schedule this morning’s update on the wrong date. And, it was just the simple update below:

We had a very slow start yesterday for reasons that shall remain in confidence due to the sensitive nature of the person who slowly got ready, delaying our departure, and who was not Ann nor I. The slow departure kept us from spending as much time as we’d hoped in downtown Fort Worth. More on that tomorrow.

Later on in the day, the two fast morning-dressers went out on their own and had a lovely afternoon meeting with Jesse and Andrea Ybarra, then a wonderful dinner with my niece, who is feeling the affects of being away from home as a Freshman in college. Our timing with her couldn’t have been better.

When we returned to the motorhome, I received an email that may lead to an incredible jeep-related opportunity, which could change our travel plans slightly. I’ll know more later today.

However, right now (that would be late Monday evening) I’m exhausted, so this is the only post for Tuesday morning. Stayed tuned …. I will post Tuesday afternoon if our travel plans change.

Desert Dwelling


And this cute, fuzzy, tarantula, that was resting outside the guest house where Ann and I are staying.

For the past couple of days we’ve been having some good family fun at Ann’s uncles place. They have about 10 acres of flat desert that’s relatively uninteresting during the day, unless you have an ATV to explore the area, but at night comes alive with all types of creatures. Never a dull moment here!


It’s not a jeep, but Ann and I had fun racing around in this thing.


Ann driving her aunt. I think my wife is ready for some jeep racing. She was driving that ATV fast!

Ann’s cousin Shelby found two things near the border of the property yesterday. A basketball and, of all things, a jeep grille, leftover from some mysterious plastic jeep. I can’t imagine why, but they thought I should have the grille. I guess it’s going up on my office wall somewhere.


Here are a few of the creatures we found at night:
