Tom Perkins’ company Treeline Teardrop Trailers out of Petaluma, California, offers both road and offroad trailers. Tom’s considering the purchase of a CJ-3B, which I think would look good pulling on his trailers. Here’s an example of the offroad one below.
Bill’s willing to sell his jeep for the right offer.
“I am thinking about selling my 1952 willys m38 and just want to see what interest is out there for it. It is a good running driving jeep. The engine has less than 1000 miles since it was rebuilt last spring. It is still 24 volt. Everything but the fuel gauge works. Tires are also new with about 1000 miles on them. The paint is not perfect but good for a driver jeep. I would be looking for $15,000 or best reasonable offer on this jeep. You could not build one for less. The photos show a winch on it, the winch would not be included with the sale. It is painted the original USAF strata blue. The trailer pictured as already been sold.”
This appears to have a MB/GPW replacement body and a M-38 windshield. For some reason the windshield isn’t pulled tight to the cowl.
“A fully restored in great condition 1946 jeep/willy with a trailer. Fully restored. Comes with the top cover and trailer, gas tanks, extra radiator, spare tire and much more.
For more info please contact me at 573-778-0605- Stephen”
UPDATE: Still Available
(11/19/2013) It includes two combat wheels.
“This is a WWII military Jeep trailer manufactured by Bantam in 1945.
It is in very original and complete condition – still in its original Marine Corp colors and markings.
Some rust along front edge where front panel meets the angle iron on front of frame. Some cracks in bed. Has a tailgate modification – but was done with clean cuts straight up and down and real panel still in place for restoration. The best possible tailgate scenario for restoration.
Has all original reflectors, two combat wheels, original lunette set-up, one safety chain, even has one black out light still in place!”
UPDATE: Was listed at $500. Sold quickly.
This appears to have promise.
