Dan forwarded this for a friend. You can contact Dan for more information. It appears in good shape. The data tag lists this as a “special” model, but what’s special about it is not clear to me. It hasn’t run in years but had new rings put in before it was parked.

(03/03/2015) Engine starts, but vehicle doesn’t run.

“Up for sale is a mostly original 1966 Nissan Patrol. The engine, transmission, transfer case, drivelines, and axles are all complete. There are fold down seats in the rear, a spare tire holder and removable hard top. Only 62,000 original miles! The inside of this is complete as well, ready to restore or make it exactly how you want it. The body is in pretty good shape, not a lot of rust or dents with the original grill and headlamps. This Patrol will start, but it is not currently drive-able due to years of sitting. Once this rare vehicle is restored, or turned into a custom trail rig, it will be a head-turning classic. Serious inquiries only, please.”

“Up for sale is a fairly rare 1966 Jeep J-200 “Gladiator” 4×4 truck with the optional Custom Cab trim package. This features the good-looking chrome front grill, aluminum front end trim, chrome front bumper, fancy stainless steel trim on the rear of the cab, Custom Cab emblems, and more.

Powered by the venerable 230 cubic inch Tornado inline overhead cam six-cylinder engine, she runs very well. I replaced the water pump (was squeaky and was ready for replacement), rebuilt the hydraulic clutch including going through the master cylinder, and replacing the slave cylinder), changed fluids, and properly set up the timing and carburetor. A nice-running truck with a lot of life left in her; showing 30,175 on the odometer, but likely rolled over once.. who can say? No exhaust smoke or bad engine noises at all. She’s got the three-speed manual “three on the tree” transmission, and optional power steering, which is a big plus. 4×4 transfer case gets her in and out of all wheel drive properly, and she comes with some spare parts including a set of Warn locking front hubs. Good brakes combined with all the above make her a sound driving truck.

Topeka Mower Spanaway, WA $600

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Dennis spotted this modified mower. It doesn’t run.

“Old cool Topeka County mowing machine. Does not have the mower attachment anymore. Selling for my pops. He used it at his RV repair shop years ago to pull trailers around and then gramps used it for his auto repair shop.
Has not run in about 7 years so not sure what it would take to get her going. Has hydrolic ram on the back that lifts a crazy bar and chain set up that gramps used to pull motors from cars with. Also has big tube setup on front had a crank winch on it but not anymore.
Think it’s a jeep flat head 4 cylinder motor. Jeep front and rear axles not sure the size. Not sure what tranny and transfer case are in it.
Was going to use it for yard art but not anymore.
It’s a cool old unusual little machine.
Could probably get it running with not a whole lot on work or just use the parts off on it.
Selling for what it’s worth in scrap so $600.00 OBO
Pops has a title for it somewhere. Thanks for looking.
If it doesn’t sell in week or 2 it’s being put on my trailer and down to the scrap yard so if ya want it let me know.
Sorry I don’t know more about it but honestly who would. never seen another one like it!”

1995 Prototype XM161 Alley Cat ‘Jeep’ on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Here’s an interesting, oddball vehicle the seller describes as a XM-161 Alley Cat. I’ve never run seen one. Looks fun.

View all the information on eBay

1995-xm161-m151-prototype1

1995-xm161-m151-prototype2

“You are bidding on a very unique vehicle. I have done is much research as I could and will try to tell you everything I know about it. If you happen to know something that I missed, please feel free to contact me and let me know. I am in no way an expert on M151s and I am sure some of you reading this ad are. This vehicle was built by S.D. Baker Company out in West Texas in 1995. They were building vehicles to compete for military contracts during this time. The vehicles they were building where a combination of custom built parts and M151 parts.

I spoke with two of the people involved with this project back then. They built a single row version of this unit (there is only one known to still be around and it has won tons of awards and is in amazing shape). They also built a few dozen that had one row and was a 6X6 with dual rear axles. These are what the build tag on this one is from (note it says 6×6 when it is not). It appears the majority of these went to south america. They remember building a couple of these units with 2 rows and a rear seat. This one went to Monahans Sandhills State park in Monahans, Texas to be used by the park rangers and spent it’s entire life there.

The other one that they have record of went to the city of Abilene, Texas and was destroyed in the 90’s according to the person I talked to at the city. I have been unable to find any evidence of another one existing in over a year of looking. That being said, this unit was never used by the military in it’s current configuration. S.D. Baker did not win any of the contracts they were shooting for so the project died. These were not “home built” or kit vehicles at any time. AS STATED ABOVE; IT DOES HAVE A VALID TEXAS TITLE AND IS STREET LEGAL IN TEXAS. If you are looking for a unique and 1-of-a-kind addition to your fleet, this is it.

They painted it red for the park for some reason. I decided to leave it just as it is to sell it. There are some who will want to paint it green, some will want it desert camo and then some will want it coated with bedliner material. I figured I would let the new owner decide what they want to do with it. I did have new seat covers and inserts made for it. The old ones were dried out and hard as a rock. We also have done the following to it: new plugs, wires, coil, batteries, rebuilt transmission, new clutch, rebuilt starter, rebuilt fuel pump, rewired gauges, new taillights, new brake seals, new rubber boots, new windshield and more.

We sent the Zenith Carb out and had it refurbished and rebuilt. There are currently 265/70R15 tires on it. They used the bigger tire for better use in the sand that’s predominate in the park. That area is basically one big sand dune. You will see there is absolutely no rust on this unit beyond some very light surface rust on some exposed underneath pieces. There is NOTHING that is damaged by it. The overall length is 186 inches, the width is 73 inches and the wheelbase is 127 1/2 inches. This is still a 24 volt system. All the lights work as they should on it. It drives out very solidly for what it is. The transfer case shifts from 2wd to 4wd with no problems. This would make a great hunting vehicle as well as a very neat part of someone’s military fleet. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.”

Diamond Plated DJ-5 Tarpon Springs, FL **STATUS UNKNOWN**

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Other 4x4s • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE II: **STATUS UNKNOWN** Was $29,000

UPDATE: This is funny. Apparently, the seller has received a number of negative comments (no surprise). So, the seller has threatened to have “your CL privileges revoked if you do these despicable acts“. 

You think $29,000 is a lot? It used to be $76,000!!! I tried to find other works by this ‘famous’ designer, but couldn’t find her anywhere but on this ad.

“For sale – a 2003 “Janx” art piece vehicle as titled by the artist and designer. It is constructed of diamond back stainless steel and built for durability, not speed. This is an uncompleted project and being sold “as is”. Its chassis is fabricated solid stainless steel and the small flat bed is meant for groceries and light hauling. This is a project piece for the person that has the time, capital and a lot of passion to invest Looking for a “show stopper”? — This one of a kind project piece would be the Holy Grail for any collection.
The steering box is from a 1978 Postal Jeep. The emergency brake is from a 1978 Postal Jeep and is not assembled and has been chromed. It has Stuart gauges. The steering wheel is Stainless steel. The engine is a straight six with an automatic transmission. The gas tank is Stainless steel. The front and back bumpers are double piping stainless. There are two built in drain holes in Y shapes on the floor and the bed for water drainage. There is a split windshield for 2 separate pieces of glass. There are old tires and rims from a 1979 Postal Jeep. The entire body of this project is of quarter inch thick diamond back stainless steel. It is a very heavy and solid piece of art.
Serious buyers only. Price is firm. By appointment only. Contact via the contact info provided in the listing.
Note – to obnoxious jealous morons – do not flag this listing or send derogatory comments – I will have your CL privileges revoked if you do these despicable acts!”

Topeka Hiway Mower Park City, UT Best Offer

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: Jean would like to see this saved rather than send it to salvage. She’s moving, so it has to go. I drove up to Kimball Junction in Utah on Wednesday to get some better photos. The mower is a mix of jeep and non-jeep parts.   You can contact Jean at jnbpc  @  msn.com if interested in the mower. I have other photos.

This ‘Tornado’ Topeka Hiway Mower is different from other Topeka mowers I’ve featured. One of the biggest differences is the front grill area. All the Topeka’s I’ve seen have an angled front grille area like these. The front of Jean’s model has a more typical tractor front.

Jean hasn’t used it much over the last seven years. The motor was rebuilt around that time and has had very little use since. It is four wheel drive, has a transfer case, and a continental engine.
