Builds: Egon’s Projects

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Other 4x4s

Recently, Egon, from Lichtenstein,  and I had been having a conversation about a Jeep project he’s trying to determine how to tackle.  Once again, the google online translation software has been effective enough to allow a conversation to occur.

Egon recently sent me some photos of his projects.  He’s done some very nice restorations.  Danke Egon!

Here’s a 1955 Steyr 15hp Tractor Restoration:

And a family of tractors:

Here is a 1968 Puch Haflinger he rebuilt (haflingers):

And here are a couple of great images of his Russian UAZ 469, which he says he took on a successful Elk hunting expedition in the Kirov region of Russia.  It sports a 2500 cc engine and has a max speed of 75KM/H

1979 IH Scout II Milford, MA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

Looks nice for the price. I didn’t know they made these as late as 1979.

“Presented here, up for sale, is a 1979 IH Scout II with less than 39,000 miles. It originally sold from Lemieux Garage in Colebrook, NH, and spent it’s life in New England. It’s currently registered, inspected, and driven occasionally. The 304 ci. V8 has plenty of power and a recent tune up. The 4 speed trans and 4X4/HI-LO with Warn hubs work as they should. It has power steering, power brakes, no A/C, and front/rear Dana 44 axles with 3.07 gears. The factory interior is complete with very little wear and tear. There is an aftermarket radio installed under the dash with 2 door speakers. The brown paint still shines on the sides with no dents. The top surfaces are starting to fade, and the metal hard top has some small bubbles and holes here and there, around the edges. The lower rear quarter panels, the rocker panels, and the lower and inner front fenders have rot, but it remains presentable. This Scout is very original and unmolested making it the perfect base for a restoration, or just drive it as is. I will consider trades of equal or better value. If you have any questions, or to make an appointment to see it,”

Off Road Action — Old School Off Road Website

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Website

For those of you who like old school offroad racing, Wes Kibble operates a site called Offroadaction, which he has recently revamped.  He’s got some interesting posts of his own as well as links out to some great offroad racing forums and websites.  Here’s an example of two interesting things I found:

Wes indirectly links to a very interesting article on Parnelli Jone’s buildup of his famous Oly Bronco Racer.  Here’s a before and after pic of it below as part of an interesting story on bajabronco.com.

From Wes’ site, I followed a link from a post of his to a forum at DezertRangers.com with a large number of old school racing truck photos.  One of the best was this one image of racing buggys parading down the middle of old downtown Vegas.
