fuel: gas
title status: parts only
transmission: automatic
Older professionaly well built chassis, stretched body for Placerville Flat fenders club “Willy Make it” 4×4 454 chevy big block auto trans all the cool stuff!!!
Used for sand Drags later mud. Single seater but could easily be a bad ass two seat crawler!! Must see unlimited potenetial and real good parts and start! Totally complete unmolested needs tires.
Call text emailI just brought home last night so I’ll clean up and get more pics later but this gives you a idea. It has rear cooler with fan and water pump, and all your basic common set ups for a vehicle like this. I was hoping it was more road ready but the starter is dragging bad and heating up so I need to put one in. The breaks need juiced and bled from sitting. The carb seams stuck but I have only just started messing with it. It’s sat for years but my buddy assured me it was running 6 months ago. So with all that said if it’s of interest to you make a offer I have a yard full of projects I’d rather turn it and burn it!!!!!”

Saturday @ The Races

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features, Racing • TAGS: , .

Jeff Miller’s newly built race jeep.

Saturday morning in Ethel started with a driver’s meeting at 8:30am. This has been standard practice for decades, the intent being to let driver’s know of any changes to the schedule, heats, classes, and courses. Some folks always have a skip in their step, others, like me, not born as morning folks, view it as the crack of dawn. Eventually my caffeine kicked in and things began to make sense.

After the driver’s meeting is a parade of jeeps, something that I never remember doing. Most of the racers line up and slowly drive the obstacle course. Not only do you get to see the course first hand, but it seems like a great group activity.


The line was pretty long. If you look near the top of the photo you can see the beginning of the parade of jeeps.


The jeeps returning from their loop on the track.

Here’s a short video:

Once the parade was finished it was time to race. About that time, the drizzle began to fall, adding some extra water to the already muddy track. The kids lined up to race first. During that time Jeff Miller introduced himself to me. We’d exchanged emails not long after I started eWillys. At that time he shared his Jewel’s Stainless Jeep with readers. Jeff has been a regular reader of eWillys since.

For much of the 1990s Jeff raced a jeep, but then he put racing on hold. It wasn’t until this year that he finally assembled another racing so he could reenter the sport. Like me, he’s fond of the Bobcat and Parkette bodies, so it’s no surprise that his race uses a Parkette shell. The jeep is a little more old school, powered by a 331 Stroker connected to a Ford Toploader and Dana 20. Not much is jeep other than that Dana 20. The hood is a piece of aluminum that a shop rolled for him so the angles from the grille to the body would look correct. It’s a nifty, clean piece. Holding the hood to the fenders are some original, stamped, Jewels stainless latches. As you can imagine, my shirt was wet from my drool. It’s a beautiful rig and it’s obvious he’s proud of it.
