Buz spotted this flatfender online from the 2012 Good Guys Del Mar car show.  I’m not sure if this is a drag or just a hot rod jeep.

May 2012 Issue of Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, Features, Magazine, Old Images, Racing

Mark reports that the recent edition of Hot Rod Deluxe Magazine has a variety of jeep pictures in it.  Here are a couple.  I have yet to pick up my copy.

Mark writes, “Found this cool copy of Hot Rod Deluxe magazine – May 2012 edition while in Barnes and Noble the other day. This nice little gem features a ton of Willys cars, trucks and quite a few Willys Jeeps as well. See pics attached. Page 6 features the first Four Wheel Drive Grand Prix in 1965 with allot of Jeeps in the pic. Page 33 features Bob Panella’s huge collection of Willys cars and trucks. Scattered throughout the rest of the pages you will find race jeeps and tricked out jeeps from back in the day which are pretty cool.”

1959 Wagon Rio Rancho, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Racing, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,950.

“I have an absolutely awesome 59 Willys Wagon Pro Street. It has a professionally built full square tube chassis and a Mustang 2 front end with rack and pinion steering. The 14 point cage was certified for 8.80s about 16 years ago. This was a drag car converted to a 9.0 second pro street car. It has a full roller, blown small block 400 punched to a 406 with an 8 quart oil pan, MSD ignition, E curve distributor and Wiend 671 Blower . Included are two 750 demon blower carbs and Dart 230 pro heads. Has NOS (never hooked up, never tried). The trans is a built Turbo 350 with a 3500 stall converter. Also has a 15 gallon fuel cell, wheelie bars and fan cooled oil and trans oil coolers under the rear. Dana 60 with 4.10s and detroit locker. Engine and trans have about 700 miles on them.

Wheels and Tires: Front and rear wheels are draglites. Rear tires are Mickey Thompson 33×19.5×15 Sportsman Pros. Front tires – Front Runners

HP? How does 650-750 sound?!?! And that’s without the 250 shot of nitrous! Can you say better than sex?!?!?

So let’s talk about what all of the above would cost. Buying the vehicle before engine and other grades – $30,000 with full square tube chassis, rack and pinion, etc. The engine alone would cost approximately $22,000 (with blower, etc.) NOS $1,000. Turbo 350 trans with stall converter another $1,500. Oil and Trans oil coolers $1,000. So all in – to build it yourself (AND THAT’S IF YOU COULD FIND ONE!) would cost you $55,000+!!!!!”

Flattie LIberty, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Racing • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

The desert dogs look in good shape.

“We have an off road toy that has been in the basement for about the last 9 years in storage. It is a International Scout frame and running gear with a fiberglass Willy’s Jeep body, custom built roll cage, aluminum floor, Chevy 292 small block with 12:1 compression, 4spd trans. It will start and run, but would imagine the Holley carb could stand to be freshen up after the time in storage. We did not build it with the intent to be street legal (no horn, turn signals, headlights, etc. Bill of Sale only, no title.”

Update:  **SOLD** Was $1000

Based on the number on the passenger side, I believe this was raced at one time.  It would have been an Eastern Washington jeep (Region 4).  The top appears in reasonable condition.  It either has a DJ or a CJ-3B windshield.
