1962 Willys 101 (Brazilian) Georgia **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Unique Jeeps • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,950.

“These are the pics for the Brazilian Jeep to choose from for the listing. As for info, it is as stated in the article, a 1962 Willys Brasil model 101. It has been modified to now have a Chevy in line 6 and a Toyota 5 speed transmission. It runs great but now needs some vinyl work and cosmetic paint. I’d love to find it a good home.”

1948 CJ-2A Double Ender

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unique Jeeps • TAGS: .

1948_cj2a_stockton_whichwayUPDATE:  I thought this was unusual (and was for sale on ebay in May 2009), but a couple days ago I  ran across a post at the Hemmings Blog which had a bunch of these type of vehicles.  You can see a few below.

“(from the ad on ebay) Here is a one of a kind parade Jeep.  It was finished October 2007 and was shown at the 2008 Fall Willys Reunion in Jefferson City, MO.  No restorable Jeep body parts were used in its construction. Mechanically it is in very good condition.  It is controlled from the red end only.  The engine starts and runs good, transmission and transfer case work good.  It has standard Jeep 4-wheel drive.  The brakes were rebuilt.  The gas tank is from a Willys pickup.  It has a new wiring harness, new gauges, including fuel gauge and fuel sending unit.  It has a new alternator, fuel pump and rebuilt starter.  It comes with a vinal cover for transport.  All lights work including rear head lights and will pass Missouri State inspection.  It has a clear Missouri title. ”

Race Jeep Tenino, Wa $9,000

Update: No Recent Update

I like the color mix as well as the overall construction.  Front shackles are reversed and it appears the rear springs are outboarded.

“Custom Race Jeep, narrow fiberglass body. Chevy 355 full roller motor, four speed top loader transmission, Dana 20 twin stick transfer case, custom Dana 44 front w/posi Dana 44 rear. Lots of horsepower. Ready to Race or take to the dunes. “

Book Review: The Jeep (book) by the Olyslager Organisation

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Books, Features, Unique Jeeps, Unusual • TAGS: .

I don’t know when or where it came from, but at some point my parents obtained a book simply titled “The Jeep“.  It was mostly a picture book, which as a young kid was perfectly fine with me.  I open and looked through it many, many times. Ok, I still open it ….

However, it wasn’t just a book with a few pics of jeeps you see everyday.  Instead, it’s a slim book full of a wide range of pictures.  Of course, there’s the standard bantam, mb, seep, gpw, etc. But, there’s also, for example, 3 images of the Willys/Nuffied modified airborne jeep, seen to the right (though not from the book — it’s from a russian site — the book images of the Willys/Nuffield are at the bottom of this post).

I bring this up, as I ran across a copy of the book at the Boise Library today.  So, I snapped a few images of the pictures with my digital camera (hence the poor quality – purchase the book to see them sharply) and will post a some of them.

I haven’t asked for permission to post them (I TRIED to, but can’t find the contact info for them), so I’ll add this pitch for the book.  This book is a must for any jeep nut.  While it’s a fairly small book with only 64 pages, the collectors prices (at amazon) were hovering around $45. It’s a perfect size for your kids.  The organization responsible for publishing the book is the Olyslager Foundation (link?), which has published a number of other cool books listed at the Open Library Project.

Now for some cool, but poor quality pics to wet your appetite…

One of my favorite sections of the book show how quickly a crate jeep can be put together.  The book documents this particular group only took 3 minutes and 31 seconds to put it togther.

Check out the rest of the pics …..
