  1. Early Tail light housing
  2. Passenger side reflector
  3. Keyed coil
  4. Newgren lift pump
  5. Temp gauge(broken capillary is fine)
  6. Monarch governor setup
  7. Mirror, arm, bracket

He’ll share some pics of his new find once he is able.

WANTED: Pics of the 25V 60amp M-38A1 Alternator Conversion

• CATEGORIES: wanted

David wants to convert his 1952 M-38A1 from a generator to a 25v 60 amp alternator. He can be contacted at ddelamar35 @ gmail.com (remove the spaces around the @ before emailing).

He writes,  “I am trying to convert the generator system on my ’52 M38A1 to a 25v 60amp alternator. I have the alternator and the conversion wiring harness, but I would appreciate seeing pictures of such a conversion and/or speaking to someone who has done it. I know that the m38a1’s manufactured by Ford in Canada had this feature”

He’s already done his research and is familiar with this post on the topic from the WillysMJeeps.com forum here, here,  and the G503 forum, but is hoping to find more pics or even discuss it with someone who has made the conversion.

WANTED: Anyone Seen this Wagon?

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

Hunter is hoping to find a wagon that his father sold about five or six years ago. He sold it to a woman named Heather Berry, who finished the build, then resold it to someone in the southern US. He thinks it was a “1958, 350 SBC with turbo 350 trans, ford 9 inch in the rear and I believe a dana 44 up front. Split window, possibly missing the trim but it could have been replaced.”

If anyone recognizes it, comment below or email me at d @ dealers.com. Here’s a pic of it:

Anyone Have the History Behind This Jeepster?

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster, wanted • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: The current owner bought this Jeepster this summer. He was wondering if anyone knows any history on this former Shriner’s vehicle?

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

Originally Posted July 6, 2020:   **SOLD** Was $5000. This 1950 Jeepster was sold out of University Place, Washington.

This former Grays Harbor Shriner’s Jeepster has even converted to an automatic tranny (probably from a Pinto … looks like one anyway) with a Pinto engine. I love the history on this one. Looks like a great price.

“Rare 1950 Willys Jeepster. Updated with Pinto engine, 12 volt system. Always stored indoors. No rust. Former Shrine clown car. $5,000 Please call, no texting.”

Boomer Needs Snow Plow Info

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, wanted

Our good friend Boomer plans to do some snow plowing to help out his Minnesota neighbors. Rather than plow driveways (too much shit to hit, he says) he will open up all his neighbor’s curb cuts.

He’s snagged a Western plow blade attachment, but he still needs the blade. Does anyone have suggestions what blade length he should seek? 6′ or 7′ or 8′ or something else?

Thanks!

WANTED: Looking for Jeep near West Point, CA

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, wanted

This person is hoping to locate an M-38A1 his grandparents owned in the Gold Country area of California. It had black plates # MBG-426. No pics provided.

https://goldcountry.craigslist.org/wan/d/wilseyville-m38a1-jeep-in-west-point/7221313066.html

“My grandparents had an M38A1 Jeep on their land on Bald Mountain Road outside West Point and Bummerville. When they passed away, the Jeep was sold off at some point by a relative before the estate could be settled or the vehicle title found.

It’s a 1956 model (rounded front fenders), completely brown and white rusted paint, with an expired CA plate MBG-426.

The last I saw of this Jeep, it was on a neighbor’s tract of land also on Bald Mountain Road (east of where the road loses the centerline and fog stripes, but before Hunter Creek and where the asphalt ends).

While the Jeep was in rough, barely driveable shape at the time it was disposed of, I’ve been interested in finding it for a restoration project. It was the 4×4 my grandparents used to teach me how to drive, and has some sentimental value.

What I’d like is for anyone who knows about this Jeep, and can open a dialogue with the current possessor, to get in touch with me by email. If it makes financial sense to purchase the vehicle back given it’s condition and missing title, I’d be willing to offer a small finder’s fee.

If it’s not worth the trouble to buy back, I’d at least like to know it’s found a good home.”

Four CJ-5-oriented Questions

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

Four CJ-5 Questions for you all:

  1. Anyone know when (month/year or vin) that the CJ-5 switched from the side tank to the rear? I’ve seen dates between mid 1970 through early 1972.
  2. Similarly, when was the PTO draw bar dropped (month/year or vin)?
  3. When did the CJ-5 spare tire mount move from the side to the back (month/year or vin)?
  4. When was JEEP changed to Jeep on the side of the CJ-5 cowl (month/year or vin)? (somewhere on eWillys I’ve answered this question, as I remember doing the research, but now I can’t find it!)
