1956 Volvo TP21 Suggan Command Car **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s, Unusual

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was on eBay.

“This car is quite complete, including one of the Swedish bikes (hand operated front drum and Bendix type rear brakes with leather hand grips and leather seat) that the Swedish Army used on them.

It even has the original oil can mounted on the fire wall under the hood and the original bike tool kit contents (adjustable wrench with tire changing tool handle, skeleton handled screw driver, little pry bar wrench and what seems to be a spoke wrench along with a tire pump stamped with the three crown insignia of Sweden) in the little tool box on the back of the bike.

The bike generator and headlamp are still in working order although the tail lamp appears to need a bulb. The car also has the original, operating Swedish Army radios on the counter top table in the back seat area.

The drive train is original and quite complete, all working well. The transmission is a un-synchronized four speed. The reverse lock out lever on the shifter and both independent dash controlled differential locks all work.

The engine always starts with no trouble no matter how cold or how long it sets unused. There is a cold weather hot water starting system dependent on another similar vehicle with the same system. The engine is a Volvo flat head six-cylinder gas engine. The engine and drive train are original.

It shows 84,400 plus kilometers on the speedometer which too is in working order. Four of the five tires are nearly new with probably less than 500 miles on them.”

T-15 Snow Weasel on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(11/17/2012) This appeared during one of my searches.  Looks fun so I thought I’d post it, but I couldn’t say whether it’s an accurate restoration.

“This fully restored T-15 serial number 184 has an excellent running engine and drives very nice. It runs and handles very well.

More photos and video of it in operation at: Military Vehicle Web
Military Vehicle Web will be listing on E-bay a very nice T-24 Weasel next week.

I collect WWII vehicles and equipment and open to offers.

It comes with WWII radio, headset, tools, skies/poles, sleeping bag, back pack, WWII white out military clothing, WWII boots with ice spikes, snow pack, tools and more. This is a very nice T-15 and the extra gear makes an excellent display. The engine compartment is fully detailed and extremely clean.

In 1941, the U.S. Military contracted with Studebaker Corporation of South bend Indiana to design, test and build a “top-secret” snow vehicle for commando use in Norway. As a result of this effort, the “Weasel Light Cargo Carrier” designated “T-15″ was the earliest production version. It had the engine in rear and driver in the front-center position. Approximately 750 were manufactured for the war effort.”

1943 Kubelwagon Mays Landing, NJ eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

The starting bid is only $3500.  This appears in good shape to me (but I know little about these).

“These Include:  I added Round Metal Mirrors, Relocated tail light and license plate mount, Made Backing plate for Rear trunk lid, Fashioned / Made the wooden floor boards “Duck Boards”, Fashioned Screw Type windshield fold-down pin handles, Added Door seals and Windshield to Dash seal, Painted the steering wheel and All Shiny bolts that were showing, Installed new NAPA ignition switch, Installed new NAPA Horn button, Installed a new Coil, Changed the distributor (old one was electronic and troublesome) Fuel Filter, Air Filter, Oil and Filter, Changed gear oil, Added the front tow rope, Added Shovel, Made Headlight Covers, Added the graphics and Markings of Rommel’s 21’st PANZER DIVISION  / DAK or Deutsch Afrika Korps WWII with Palm Tree but Deleted the Swastika for obvious reasons.

* Graphics / Markings are either vinyl self stick OR Spray painted stencils. Either way, Graphics are easily removable with Acetone if desired *

I had the Engine removed and Transmission / Engine seals replaced by a professional Antique VW repair facility because I saw gear oil on the floor of the barn. Some say old VW’s mark their territory by leaking oil but this one does not.

KUBELWAGEN has a 1974 – 1600CC / 58HP Engine  < #AE 946851 >  that purrrrrs and a 1965 Beetle Chassis < Vin#145304936 >

It is Titled in NJ as a 1965 VW KUB CON (meaning Kubelwagen Convertible).  It was titled by me on June 7th this year. I have driven it about 300 Miles to shows and around town. It WILL go 70 MPH but I drive it at 45-50 MAX and laugh as people drive around me.

The Mileage shown on the Working ODOMETER is from a Donor Car and is 52,748 – This is NOT actual but is the number used for title purposes.  The Actual mileage this car has traveled in it’s current configuration since being built is estimated at 400. That would be prior owner who completed car 100 Miles ESTIMATED and MY personal ESTIMATE of 300 for a total of 400 ESTIMATED miles.

The car is a 2 DOOR in Suicide configuration to open backwards.
It has single element Headlights meaning NO HIGH BEAMS.
It has a Working GAS gauge, Speedometer, Odometer and Oil pressure gauges that DO NOT Light Up. I believe they have bulbs and can light up but do not at this time. I don’t think they are wired to light up.
It has a Push Button on the dashboard that energizes the Alternator to charge the battery.”

Fantastic Caverns Jeep Train

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s, Women & Jeeps • TAGS: , .

Craig forwarded the below excerpt and photo from his local coop paper.  I went to the website and spotted an additional photo (above). Here’s the location of the caverns.

Here is the text from Craig’s news article:

“Missouri is blessed with a number of remarkable show caves open to the public. One of the most unique is Fantastic Caverns, located just north of Springfield. The cave, which is served by Ozark Electric Cooperative, was first discovered in 1862 when a farmer’s dog crawled through what was then a narrow opening.

It wasn’t fully explored until 5 years later when a group of intrepid women responded to a newspaper challenge. What makes Fantastic Caverns so unique are the Jeep trams that carry visitors through the cave on a guided tour. This makes the 1 mile, 50-minute tour accessible to just about anyone, including seniors, children and those in wheelchairs.
Inside the cave are natural wonders created by the constant drip of acidic water through soluble limestone. Tour guides point out stalagtites and stalagmites, towering columns with colorful mineral stains, large deposits of flowstones and delicate draperies.

They also tell how the auditorium room was once used for weekly country music concerts in the 1950’s and mid-1960’s. A trip through Fantastic Caverns combines equal parts of awe and wonder with a lesson in history and science. In fact, the cavern is known as “Missouri’s oldest classroom.”

The tour costs $22.50 for adults and $14.50 for children. A discount for groups of 20 or more is available. The cave is open from 8 a.m. to dusk year-round except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas.

1973 4 Door CJ-5 Custom Jeep Sunnyvale, TX eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features, Other 4x4s, Unusual

This was made from 2 CJ-5s.  The seller provides a variety links and pictures for this neat project.

“This auction is for a custom four door CJ.  The Jeep was built using all CJ5 parts.  The front door is modeled off of a CJ7.  The rear door is modeled off of a CJ5.  The bed is extended to the length of a CJ6 or CJ8 Scrambler.  The frame is stretched 36 inches in the middle and 14 inches behind the rear axle.  The frame was boxed from the front to to the rear spring perches.  It has Dana 30 and Dana 40 axles both are open diffs.  The transfer case is a Dana 20.  The transmission is a 3 speed.  I believe it is a T150.  The engine is an AMC 360 from a 1972 Wagoneer.  It was rebuilt about 15,000 miles ago.  It was bored over.  The crank was turned.  It got all new bearings, new pistons, new valve guides, and hardened seats.  It has an RV cam, an Edelbrock SP2P low rise dual plane intake, and a Holley Street Avenger 570cfm carb.  The motor has more than enough power for a vehicle this size.  I drove it about a month on the new motor when I broke the input shaft on the old transmission.  I then put the heaviest spring in the secondaries of the carb and backed up the timing a little bit to take some of the grunt out of the motor.  The Jeep was built in 2009.  It got all new floors.  There is no rust in the body or frame.  The color is Rescue Green from a 2008-2009 Wrangler.  The seats are new from Bestop.  The seat belts were new in 2009.  It has a super thick aluminum radiator, power steering, and front disk brakes.  It has a 20 gallon gas tank from an 86 CJ7.  The tires are 33 10.50 15 BFG Mud T/A KM2.  The fronts have about 5k miles on them and the rears are new.  I have no idea how many miles are on the Jeep.  It has about 15k since built.  Almost everything was replaced at that time.  The tub and bed have bedliner throughout.  It looks funny in the pictures, because it is a little wet from washing the Jeep.  The leaf springs were upgraded to the wider springs from a 76 model CJ7.  It has front sway bar mounts on the frame, and I have a sway bar for it.  It will need new rod ends and bushings if you plan to install it.  I will also include the stock front bumper if you want it.  You can see pictures of it on the link below.

This Jeep was my daily driver for almost 3 years.  It draws a crowd everywhere you go.  You can’t buy gas or go into Home Depot without someone stopping you to talk about it.  Since it was my daily driver, it has all of the scratches and dings you would expect of a truck used for that period of time.  It runs and drives good.  The four wheel drive works fine.  Since I had to rely on this as my driver, It hasn’t been thrashed off road since built.  The four wheel drive has been used in the snow, pulling trailers out of the muddy pasture, and around the deer lease.

Negative issues:  This is no trailer queen, so it has normal dings and rock chips and scratches that you would expect from a driver.  There is one good dent in the left rear fender well.  I included a picture of it.  The speedometer doesn’t work.  The gas gauge half ass works half the time.  The gauge is new, it needs a sender.  While you are replacing the sender, you could replace the oring on it that leaks gas if you overfill it.  The oil gauge works, but is falling apart.  It needs a new horn switch.  You have to hit just the right spot to make it honk.  If you romp on it in reverse, it will pop out of gear.  Driving sensibly prevents it from happening.  The transfer case shifter needs new bushings, but it shifts fine for me, so I don’t worry about it.  It has a top and doors that need recovering.  I don’t have any pictures of it, but you can see it in the snow video below.

See it run and drive on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5oef9OP4lE

1941 Russian GAZ Yerevan, Armenia eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

This appears to be an early GAZ 67B that’s fairly original (though I’m no GAZ expert).  Here is a similar example at a Moscow Mueseum.  The bigger question is whether to bid at all given this is located in Armenia.

“GAZ 67, a Soviet military jeep dating from 1941. All the parts on the vehicle are its originals. The car doesn’t run. It needs to be repainted, the seats need to be rebuilt.
If you are really interested in the car, but want it fixed, we can get it done. But obviously, the price will go little higher.
For the payment, PayPal, deposit/transfer on bank account or contact by e-mail for other arrangements. The car can be shipped worldwide, the price can vary from 500 to 3000$, depending on the location.”

Just a Squirrel — A George Barris T-Buggy

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

If you have seen Pixar’s UP movie, then you know what a ‘squirrel’ is, something that distracts you from what you planned or should be doing.  Well, at least that is the terminology Ann and I use.

Obviously, the internet is notoriously full of squirrels.  Today’s squirrel relates to a search I was doing this morning, something I do in the normal course of producing (and by producing I mean borrowing) the incredibly high quality, unparalleled content published herein.  That’s when I spotted this (http://lascruces.en.craigslist.org/cto/3151068039.html only $800!) fiberglass flat fender dung buggy body.  I instantly recognized it as the body style of the dune buggy the my neighbor Bud across the street used to build his dune buggy when I was a kid.  The distinguishing feature were those flat fenders in the front, which for obvious reasons seemed comfortably familiar to a lover of flat fenders like myself.  After spotting this ad,  I spent about an hour this morning, chasing this squirrel of a buggy to learn more about it.  It turns out it is a Barris designed T-Buggy kit that Barris had hoped to sell through dealers in every state (I don’t’ know how far he got creating the dealer network).

Now, my neighbor Bud was quite a character.  He was a machinist for Boeing until he retired and machined a couple parts for me that really helped when I was building my first jeep.  During the 1970s he purchased an electric wedge car like this, which on a full charge had just enough power to allow him to drive down Renton’s South Hill into Kent in the morning and return up the hill in the evening.  When Bud’s son Tim, who was my age, turned 16, we’d go for a drive occasionally.  Thank goodness we never got in a wreck, because that vehicle was a coffin waiting for bodies.

At some point before he purchased the ‘cheese wedge’, Bud built a dune buggy.  Every so often we would go for a ride in it, sometimes on the roads and sometime down a power line trail (that was the good old days when you could still go down a power line trail).  One day, we drove into downtown Renton to the former Sears outdoor shopping mall off of Rainier Avenue.  However, instead of parking in a parking spot, Bud drove onto the sidewalk, between a couple stores, and into the middle of the walking mall.  We drove by a few stores until he got right in front of the store he wanted to enter, where he came to a stop as if he belonged there.  We got out and people walked by checking out the cool dune buggy as if it belonged there.  When we were done at the store, we just hopped in and drove back out.

I never knew what type of dune buggy he had, until today’s search.  Based on what I’ve read below, he must have purchased a Barris T-Buggy kit.  The dune buggy he built had all the Model-T elements you see below.  His body was painted a metallic dark red.  It had the faux leather straps across the hood, the chrome roll bar, and a small soft top.  Bud ended up selling that in the 1980s I believe.  I’ve never seen it since.

If you want to chase some dune buggy squirrels of your own, check out the Dune Buggy Archives or Samba.

Here’s an example that is as close as I’ve found to Bud’s:

This is example the way I remember Bud’s, only it was red and didn’t have the stripe around the edges.  Bud had wider, more aggressive slicks that improved the ‘hot wheel’ look, too.

Here’s an example of a kit.

6×6 Jeeps in the Jolly Jeepers Jeep Club

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Other 4x4s, Unusual • TAGS: , .

I was looking up some PTO parts when I landed on the Jolly Jeepers website.  According to their website, the Jolly Jeepers is Oregon State’s oldest jeep club, having been founded in 1962. Two of the jeeps owned by members are custom 6x6s.  You can see more 6x6s here.

Coincidently, just before publishing this post, Blaine happened to send me pictures he took of one of these 6x6s at the Orphan Car Show hosted by the Studebaker Drivers Club in Oregon City, Oregon, this past Sunday.  I’ve seen “Gator” listed both as a DJ-6 and a CJ-6, so I’m not entirely sure what the base platform was.

Here’s an early shot of the Gator:

UPDATE:  Still Available

(05/24/2012) The tail light set up is interesting.  This looks in great shape.

“1985 Jeep J59 51,000 Miles CJ3b

In 1953 Mitsubishi secured the rights to build the Willys under their own name and the Mitsubishi Jeep was born. In the USA the Willys was built till 1965 but in Japan Mitsubishi had a good thing going so they kept the line in production till 1998. Mitsubishi installed the 5G52 Astron 2.0L 4 cyl These engines put out a much more useful 100 hp and moved these Jeeps down the highway comfortably at 110 km / hr or 65 mph.

This is a true turn-key off road capable unit. They have full time hubs Ready for the rugged out doors. Pick a trail and enjoy one of the best off-road vehicles ever made. The beauty of the Willy’s body style coupled with the strong and reliable Japanese engineered drivetrain using the D44 out back and the D30 up front, gear to gear t/case with a 2.3 low range, 4.77 differential gearing and you are ready for the great out doors.
Crawl down the steepest hill or race up the nearest dune, this gutsy miniature tank can handle it all. The very sharp approach and departure angles will be the envy of all and the superb break over angle will be hard to beat in any stock 4X4. This stock J59 can run 31” tires with absolutely NO LIFT.

Absolutely Mint Condition, runs as NEW. These Jeeps are some of the finest manufactured vehicles in the world.

GAZ-69 Kailua Kona, HI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

This is unusual and in good shape.

“GAZ-69 took the place of GAZ-67B in 1953 and remained on assembly line till 1972 practically without changes. First cars have been produced in Gorkiy city (before 1930 and right now – Nizhniy Novgorod). Then, in December of 1954 production of GAZ-69 has began in Ulianovsk, UAZ. GAZ-69 production on GAZ lines has been cancelled in 1956. Officially GAZ-69 became UAZ-69, but new name didn’t get accustomed even in official papers. The engine of the car was taken from the famous “Pobieda” GAZ-M20. Strangely, the vehicle was not supplied with side mirrors. The only small mirror in the uppermiddle of windscreen was useless in tarpaulin covered car because of small rear window.
Before 1970 there was only rear window in the canvas top, then 2 windows appeared on every side.

New brakes installed, bought from Bulgaria. Headlight deflector/black-outs included. Canvas top needs restored. Will drive to dock for shipping. Shipping and payment to be set-up by buyer. Vehicle has just over 1,000 kilometers original.”

1954 Austin Champ Birmingham, Mi **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $29000

As a former owner of three of these, I can attest to their lack of value.

“Austin was commissioned to build the Champ to replace WWII Willys Jeeps in the British Military service. It is powered by a modular Rolls-Royce engine that produces 80 horsepower. The engine is linked to a 5 speed synchromesh transmission that has no integral reverse gear, drive being taken by the propshaft to a rear transaxle which incorporated a reverse mechanism that acted on all five ratios and is controlled by a separate lever. The suspension is fully independent double wishbones with a longitudinal torsion bar and telescopic hydraulic damper at all four wheels.

Recently, over $8,000 was spent replacing all the axle seals and gaskets for the front and rear differentials. The front and rear shocks were also replaced and the entire undercarriage and suspension was cleaned, undercoated, and detailed.]”

Year? Mitsubishi Annapolis, MD **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $5700.

“I purchased this jeep 5 years ago in Washington State where I restored it and used it on mountain trails, hunting/fishing while based at Fairchild AFB near Spokane. After being transferred to Andrews AFB it’s spent most of its time in my garage, other than trips into town, etc. It has a very efficient low mileage (under 45,000 miles) 4DR6 2.7L diesel engine mated to an iron 4speed manual transmission and transfer case. The steering is right hand drive as is typical for these late model willy’s from Japan. It’s been well maintained but shows some wear for its age such as repairs in the soft top, worn seats, etc. I also have the driver, passenger, and rear doors that are included in the sale. About 3 years ago the windshield wiper motor stopped working, so I’ve relied on the back up manual wiper in its place. I don’t have the time to research a new wiper motor or have it rebuilt, which is why I’m letting my jeep go at such a low price… While doing some research on this vehicle I discovered through discussion boards that individuals are paying up to $14K for these jeeps by the time the import cost, taxes, and all other expenses are calculated. It’s never been driven in the rain/snow here in Maryland due to rust concerns. This jeep has proven extremely reliable to me and capable of anything I’ve put in its path, you won’t be dissapointed.

Since I’ve owned it I’ve addressed the following:

-New windshield
-5 new 8 ply tubeless tires
-resealed the front and rear axles
-replaced all of the brakes (11″ drum brakes)
-installed new rear driveshaft
-replaced driveline parking brake
-eliminated rust from rear fenders by removing old sheet metal and welding in new
-Water pump was rebuilt 1 month ago
-New fan/alternator belt last month
-replaced thermostat & hoses
-installed inline coolant block heater
-M38 speedometer (replaced old unit that was in kilometers per hr)
***note*** speedometer works great but odometer recently stopped working
-installed turn signal control (unit was missing when it arrived from Japan)
-new pintle hitch with 2″ ball
-new shovel, axe, & jerry can
-installed farm jack on front bumper
-new M38 mirrors

1969 Nissan Patrol Eagle River, AK **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Was $1000. **SOLD**

If parted out, this might indeed be worth a small fortune if you think around $1000 is a small fortune.

“for the people who collect these ive been told that if i parted it out it would be worth a small fortune, but i want to sell the whole thing quickly so lets deal…..it ran and drove to where it was parked sat a few years brake pedle goes to floor has twin stick t/case 4 litre straight 6 inline engine some spare parts in back picture makes it look good but it does have rust. all parts are there except door glass. neat old rig a lot of people get it confused with a land rover but it is a nissan patrol. its about the size of a CJ 5 but a little wider so its not tippy, they were used by militaries all around the world until fairly recently they were still made. there is a title for this. i really wish i could keep this but you can see the willys in the background of one picture and that is the project im working on now.”
