“I am selling a collection of various Jeeps, including Willy’s wagons/trucks, CJ2, CJ3, CJ5, CJ7. Most are complete, just have not been started, run or moved in a few years. Selling all to clear the land. Please message for phone number please as I will NOT do back-and-forth texting. Thank you for your help in that regard. I also have others ads up for vintage aluminum trailers, Mercedes, Studebakers and a few other vehicles from the 1950’s thru 1970’s. Pictures are but a sample of what is available.

1959 Truck Highland, UT $11,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks

Looks good, but the seller notes the body could use some work.

“1959 Willys Pickup (NOT WAGON) that runs and drives. It was originally a farm truck in Colorado but has been in Utah as a project truck for the last few years. It has been garaged for the last few years.
It has the original 226 cu in 6-cylinder “Super Hurricane” engine. The odometer shows 14,333 but we’re not certain if it has rolled over 100k miles. Original 3 speed manual transmission, 2 and 4WD (hi and lo) and rare manual front lockers in working condition. New tires all around with the spare in the bed.
The body needs some work. There is rust (mostly on the truck bed) but for it’s age it’s in incredible condition. It’s not a show truck in its current condition but it turns heads every time we drive it. We’ve had a lot of people express interest in using it for weddings and photoshoots.
We purchased it with the intent to restore it but never found the time and want to help it find a new home with someone that can restore it to it’s original beauty.”

Riding to the Rescue: A look back at LA County’s Rescue Vehicles

UPDATE: This updated post from 2012 now includes photos taken by David Carr at LA County’s Cabrillo Beach.  The three photos below are on a wall as part of a “wall-of-fame”. 

la-county-life-guard3 la-county-life-guard2 la-county-life-guard

===============================

From June 28, 2012: Over the past 100 years Los Angeles County has used a variety of vehicles to manage their beaches.  As part of a retrospective, the article below shows a few of them, along with welcoming some new hybrids into the County system.  All photos belong to LA County’s Life Guard Association.

Here are two GPWs (the pics were from a now defunct blog):

Bathing beauties were still posing on county lifeguard trucks in 1959.

Buz unearthed this CJ-2A Life Guard Jeep used by the city of Los Angeles (vs. the county).  Though the caption accompanying the jeep suggests this was war surplus, it’s clear this is a civilian rig. The rear extension is interesting, though doesn’t look neatly done.

“Don’t you hate it when you’re at a dealer auction trying to buy trucks for work and you just cant put your arm down to stop bidding on a beautiful old school Willys Jeep pickup? Man, I hate it when that happens…

I’ve owned a lot of Willys in my life, a lot (like 25-30 civilian and military) never had one like this, this truck is special, it was loved. I think this truck is amazing, preserved in an original patin. The previous owner’s wish (and mine) is that it remain like this… just an opinion, but…
