Just a Couple Updates Saturday

Just a couple updates today, though it certainly isn’t for lack of content. There was a noticeable increase in jeeps for sale last month that was constant throughout the entire month. We may be looking at the leading edge of another recession.

SLAG Is Here .. In Limited Numbers

• CATEGORIES: News

I’m ready to release a small number of books … 12 to be exact. These first books are signed copies and will be $30 (with free shipping). Around the end of July I will be making the book available to everyone, with signed copies available from me or unsigned copies through Amazon. You can learn more about the book at my new author’s site: http://www.deilers.com/.

Though I’ve done my best to squash all the grammatical errors, I’m sure I’ve missed a few. So, as a part of this first round of books I’ll be offering a bounty of $5 per error if anyone wants to take me up on it (up to a max of $100 or 20 errors — not person but total). When you order the book I’ll explain how to send the errors you find to me. I’m only making this offer to the twelve eWillys readers who purchase this version.

If you want a book, drop me an email (d@ewillys.com) that includes your mailing address. I’ll explain how to pay (I’ll take check or paypal).

2 – Panorama Soft Tops Black Mountain, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

Seller notes that white top is a 1979 Panorama top. Looks in great shape.

“Up for sale are my 2, cj2a soft tops. $500 for the black $350 for the white. Im getting a half top made. One is a newer bestop on the Jeep used for 2 short seasons and never in bad weather. It’s black and complete.
The second is a white Panorama Top from 1979 that was found new in a box. I had it cleaned up. Windows are really nice as is the white vinyl. There is one small hole lesser than the size of a metal snap. Inside the liner is nice but stained from the metal hardware that rusted a bit. It looks dark because it is still wet. All hardware is included along with the bow assembly handles latches etc. ”

Only a Couple Updates This Morning

Upon our return home on Friday we learned there’d been a kitchen faucet leak. No damage to the cabinet, but the leaking faucet led to a new sink/faucet combo. So, there was no time for eWillys updates for Sunday. Updates will resume Monday morning!

1947 CJ-2A Spokane, WA No Price

• CATEGORIES: News

It’s an early ’47 based on the body tag and serial number (matching).

“1942 cj 2a jeep willys up for trade or sale. Looking for best offer or nice sport quads. Needs a battery, and maybe little wiring done to it to get it to run. A little restore was done on it 10+ years ago, Sat out in the weather for a few years. I picked it up from a buddy’s dad. Minimal surface rust but no bad spots at all. Motor turns over but has no spark. Needs a good home. Bill of sale only. Needs to be taken to WSP for a vin inspection to get title. I did most of the home work on that issue and it’s pretty simple.”
