WillyWilly Aluminum Head Northeast, AR $1000


UPDATE: Sometimes, we don’t know what we don’t know. In this case, Ted Robinette corrects the record regarding his creation of the WillyWilly (one word) Aluminum head:

NOT A HICKEY HEAD: The WILLYWILLY cylinder head is not a copy of or a rebranding of the Hickey head like the Chuchua head was nor “originated as a Vic Hickey product” as mentioned in the preceding comments.

THE DEVELOPMENT: I did purchase a well used Hickey head in California during the late 80’s and once I got it home to Australia found it to be only suitable for wall art so set about designing my own version.

To say it is a copy or rebranding belittles the development effort and investment involved in creating the pattern and core boxes to my own design here in Australia. While the top shape is inspired by, but not the same as, an early HICKEY head the water jacket is a different shape with strengthening ribs added internally plus internal bosses for the temp sender and bypass etc to thread into. The combustion chamber shape is my own design as is the use of 3/4″ reach spark plugs. The deck and walls are also made thicker to add stiffness to the head and as a consequence to the top end of the engine block. This latter point is more relevant to the Whippet and Willys 77 (48 hp) pre-war engine blocks for which the head bolt pattern in my casting could be drilled to suit.

THE NAMES: RO-ETT is my surname shortened. Nothing to do with ‘Rockett”.

The cylinder head is named WILLYWILLY, written as one word, being the word Australian Aboriginals used to describe a dust devil, gust or other strong wind. This name was chosen as a play on Willys use of Go Devil, Hurricane, Tornado etc to label the engines they produced. The WO part number cast into the top of the WILLYWILLY head is a play on the Willys part number for the circa 1939 factory aluminium cylinder head.

THE ARKANSAS HEAD FOR SALE ON FACEBOOK: I took the pattern out of retirement to specially make the WILLYWILLY head, #A715, shown in the Facebook sale for a guy in Arkansas who had an aircraft powered by a Jeep L134 engine. The L134 has since been replaced by a radial engine. In the last ten years I have only made three heads being the aircraft #A715 and another for a bellytank based Lakester race car and a twin spark plug conversion for my own Speedster.

ANY MORE HEADS FOR SALE? NO, I do not have any WILLYWILLY heads for sale.

OTHER ITEMS: A few years ago I made the patterns and core box for a twin downdraft carburetor manifold (Roett-Duett) to suit the L134 engine and have cast a few. Again the manifold is my own design and not a copy of the BURNS or DARLAND manifolds I have but found not suitable for my vehicles. More recently I made a pattern to cast a few aluminium sumps to suit L134 engine projects I am involved with. Unfortunately the closure of one foundry and then covid has caused foundry backlogs and materials and manufacturing cost hikes that might discourage making more of the manifolds and sumps. Time will tell.

Best Willys Regards
Ted Robinette


This is a very rare head.

Kelly Hardtop Dacula, GA $450


This Kelly hardtop has some surface rust at the very least, but it’s hard to tell just how deep it is based on the pics.

“For sale – Kelly All Steel Top enclosure for CJ3B Picked up this project jeep over the weekend. Don’t need the Kelly Steel Top, so it is for sale. In decent shape, windows roll up and down, some rust but definitely usable and restorable. These are harder and harder to find.”

Koenig CJ-5 Hardtop Clawson, MI $500


This seems worth a look.


“Koenig Iron Works complete enclosure top from a 1955 Willys Jeep CJ-5. Comes with the top, two sides, back door and both side doors. Some glass is cracked but still intact, both side door windows move freely and come with all original hardware. Back door hardware functions as it should. The top is in very good condition. There is some rust and or holes, on some pieces, but overall, this would be great for a restoration project and is solid. I have the majority of the screws, etc., but they are standard size so replacing is not difficult. Also included are the old interior door panels, which are shot but could be used as templates for replacement.”

Even contains the original padding/insulation on the roof. All the glass is perfect and they open as if new. The only negative about this top is the color but of course can be repainted. I do not have the doors. It should be noted that the jeep is not for sale, only the hardtop.”

Fiberglass Tub and Parts Stoughton, MA $1200

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Parts • TAGS: .

The tub looks in very good shape. I would guess the seller is correct, that this is an older lightweight California tub similar to one I had from the 1970s. ‘$1200 gets you everything. $1000 just gets you the tub.

fiberglass-body-stoughton-ma0 fiberglass-body-stoughton-ma1 fiberglass-body-stoughton-ma2 fiberglass-body-stoughton-ma3 fiberglass-body-stoughton-ma4

“We have available a fiberglass replacement tub for a flat fender Willys Jeep.

I believe this is for a CJ2A / CJ3A setup…but, maybe it also fits military MB M38 Ford GPW? Even though they had the high hood and slightly taller cowl I think it could potentially fit CJ3B , too?? The last photo shows the height of the cowl.

Doing some searching online I see ACME & Brian Chuchua’s may have made them at one point…but otherwise I don’t know the manufacturer.

This was from a project that started, but never fully mounted. Some holes were started on the firewall, and the fenders look like they started to get cut on the inside, but otherwise it’s still relatively “new”. Has some extra metal brackets / supports for around the firewall. It’s relatively light, but still feels solid.

Also available/included was a Bestop soft top (just the skins & doors no frame work) and 2 black front seats.
$1200 for everything or
$1000 for the body tub with fenders (I shouldn’t have to say this but CASH ONLY no electronic payments or checks!!)”

Monroe 3-point Hitch Storrs, CT $2750


Ted’s got this Monroe 3-point hitch. He also has some housings and other pro parts.


“Up for sale or possible trade is a Willys Jeep Monroe Three Point Hitch or Hydraulic Lift Assembly. This is the last of a large collection of lifts that I’ve liquidated. This Monroe setup is in overall very decent condition for its age and mostly complete with the exception of the one small rear housing mount ( which I might be able to source by the time of a sale or trade) and the hydraulic lines which all guys usually have made new at any hydraulic line shop or even most Napa’s will make you new lines. All the other components of a Monroe lift are present including a few of the super hard parts to find like the original crank shaft driven pump and mount , center link and adjustment Plates.

I was lucky enough to find an original under body mount for these lifts and I had a few made from a Machinest friend of mine which will be included with all hardware to mount. Control Valve and tank assembly included as well as Monroe Lift housing with original ram ( all mounting tabs perfect) , leveling link, lift rods ,left and right lower lift arms, rear draw bar mounts etc. I will also include a copy of the master parts list for a Monroe lift Assembly and a link to an original Monroe operation and care Manual.

I have a few extra housings that may be available as well but no other extra small parts. Feel free to call or text with any questions or specific pic requests. I have sold four of these units recently all within the $2500-$3000 range depending on condition and completeness if lift.
