“Vintage racing Jeeps aren’t around every corner, making this listing pretty unusual. Here on eBay is a 1976 Jeep J10 said to be a Baja racer, bid to $2,025 with no reserve. The vehicle is located in Caldwell, Idaho, and this tip came to us courtesy of T.J. The seller’s ad is unfortunately short of details, so we’ll have to fill in the blanks as best as we can. We do know the Jeep J10 started out under the Gladiator name, a vehicle that was produced from 1962 through 1988 in one form or another. By the time this Jeep was made, the two-wheel drive option had given way to the much more popular four-wheel drive. The paint scheme indicates Marlboro as a sponsor; the driver’s name is Mike Honcho and the co-driver is Gator McKlusky. Mike Honcho was the Playgirl-posing alias of the Cal McNaughton Jr character in Talledega Nights. Burt Reynolds played the Gator McKlusky character in White Lightening, a movie produced in 1973, but the movie car was a Ford Galaxie, not a Jeep. The truck is set up to tow behind your race trailer.”

1979 J-20 Aurora, IL $1800

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Given the plow setup and the fact that this runs, it seems worth a look if you need. a plow jeep.


“1979 J-20 Jeep. Runs and drives. Plow works. Transmission was serviced last year. Used to plow parking lot of shop since 2008. Leaks power steering fluid. Brakes need attention. Truck is rough, don’t expect a gem.”

1963 Jeep J-200 Townside on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Barney Goodwin shared this ad and confirmed the rare bed was an early option. He noted, “Just to confirm. We have the leather factory presentation book from September, 1962, and it shows the Townside bed was an option on all 3 models 100, 200 and 300. It’s a really neat book. Actual color photographs pasted into gold printed fames and all the specs and details.. In 1962, the factory hired an additional 1000 employees for the J-series line.”

“Awesome solid restoration project up for grabs! ONE WEEK AUCTION! NO RESERVE! MUST BE PICKED UP BY NOVEMBER 30TH! Original low mileage 1963 Willy’s Jeep Gladiator J200 4×4 with the Townside bed and Western Plow. Tornado 260 engine with the 3-on-the tree standard transmission. This truck is extremely solid for a truck that spent much of it’s life as a camp plow truck in the Adirondacks. Very low 29,151 miles on it. It will run and drive however the mechanical fuel pump died and the previous owner put in an electrical unit that has too much pressure and it keeps flooding the carb. Aside from that, all I can think of that it would need is some new rubber gaskets on the gas tank filler pipe. They dried out. Continue reading

Empire Tractor Cascade, IA $775

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

A long time reader, Allan has this project Empire Tractor for sale.


empire-tractor-cascade-ia5 empire-tractor-cascade-ia6 empire-tractor-cascade-ia7 empire-tractor-cascade-ia8

“Price reduced from $975 to $775 to have this gone before I have to plow snow around it !…This is a vintage Empire tractor chassis built by the Empire Tractor Co. in New York after WWII. The Empire Tractor Co. decided to produce small farm tractors using readily available Willys Jeep engine, transmission and drivetrain parts from war surplus.

The tractor chassis is Serial Number 5826. It was built in Nov. 1947. This sale includes only what is shown in the pictures. You would need a Willys 134 cu. in. 4cyl. engine and transmission. The driveshaft is still there, as well as the rear axle. The PTO shaft and rear output is also included. The cowl and dash still has all the rare I.D. tags attached and legible.

This would be a good restoration project for someone who may already have a Willys drivetrain in an older, rusted out Jeep. This project would be a lot of work, but well worth it. I cannot physically do the type of work needed anymore, so I am offering it for sale.

We do have a forklift and loader tractor available to help with loading for the buyer.”

DJ-3A? & A Sand Jalopy? Imperial, CA $1000/each

I have to say I was more curious about the Sand Jalopy Hot Rod than the jeep. The jeep seems to have a DJ-3A body. Neither seems to have much value.

1943 Ford Burma Lewiston, ID $4500

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Martin shared this rig. This one runs across drives. It could be a handy rig to have around.

“1943 Ford Burma Jeep, this particular truck was a bomb service truck for the Navy during World War II. It has the in-line six ford engine that starts easy and runs smooth. It has a 10,000 pound Braden PTO winch that works great and has new cable. The four wheel drive works as it should in both high and low range, high range is pretty low as top speed is only 45 mph. It does have a leak here and there as you would expect from something of this vintage but does run well and drives and stops. This would make a good farm rig or a good restoration truck for a military collector, as I read there were approximately 15,000 of these trucks made in five different configurations, I don’t know how many of them survived. I would be open to offers / trades.”
