1952 Redmond, OR **SOLD**

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.

Parkette Body and Bobcat Hood (& more) Yakima, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Features, Racing, Roll Cage • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Last price was $1000. It sold.

The Parkette fiberglass body is an extreme rare, well made body.  One of the best things about this body is that a CJ-3A windshield will properly fit it, unlike the fiberglass Bobcat body.   During the 1970s, a friend of mine bought a Bobcat body, prepped it, and painted it.  When he stuck on the windshield he discovered the cowl was too flat to properly seat the windshield to the cowl.  To say he was angry was an understatement, because he felt he was mislead by the promises the manufacturer made.

So, after talking with the Parkette body manufacturer and getting assurances that the measurements were more accurate, he bought the body and has been happy about it ever since.

The body shownn below has had it’s rear wheel wells cut a bit.  It’s got a good looking rollcage that has been attached to the frame.  If this has been available when I was building biscuit, I would have started right here.

I due have a title for it. I can’t remember the year at the moment but 46′ sticks in my head. I was going to build a wheeler out of it but I have no time or money.

Chris enters his first PNW Race

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: .

Now, you probably think I run eWillys because of all the money, fame, babes and glory I receive.  Not true!  Instead, it is a story like this one that makes the work worthwhile.  Nearly two years ago I started swapping emails with 15 year old Chris Ruhnau.  He had a mostly stock 1947 CJ-2A and was having problems with some wiring issues.  We worked through those issues, brake issues, battery issues,  and even a girl issue.  Last summer he spotted a CJ-2A just down the road from him, with a full cage and more for only $1000. He couldn’t resist, so at age 16, he was the proud owner of two jeeps.  Clearly, he suffered from a case of Willys Sickness.

Over the past winter he spent time working on his jeep and going to high school.  This summer, he got everything finished and found his way to his very first PNW event.   As you will read, he had a great time.  Nice work on the jeep Chris and keep on racing!

Dave!!! You’ll never believe this! I raced my jeep today! The PNW4WDA put on a race in Ethel, Wa.  I raced twice in the obstacle course! It was so much fun. I’ve never had so much fun! In both races I got the same time… 1.61. It was really hard though because it was really soupy. I only had 2 problems, my fan wire shorted out and then my battery died, but those are minor and i still had tons of fun. everyone was coming up to me when I was sitting in line and asking about the jeep and saying it was nice. I felt pretty good about that. A guy i know that races said that he’s going to let me take my jeep to his shop and we’re going to fix my steering and he’s going to give me some brand new rancho shocks so that my fenders and battery box wont rub on the tire so much. The guy that used to be the leader of PNW4WDA asked for my email, too, to let me know when the events schedule so I can race a lot this summer!
