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!)

Civilian L-134 in Good Shape Wanted

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Carlos Lopez from Navarro, Spain, is seeking a civilian L-134 in good condition from someone willing to ship the engine to Spain. He’s rebuilding the very first MB-CJ3B built in Spain (Civvy L-134s were installed in the early ones http://www.mb-cj3b.com/home_en/mb-cj3b_history). He’s spent the past year looking around Spain for an engine, but has had no luck finding one. Based on an ebay example he sent me (that seller won’t ship internationally), he’s willing to pay a reasonable amount for the engine (of course he’ll foot the shipping).

It sounds like a worthy project. Email me at d@ewillys.com and I’ll provide his email.

Here are some pics of his jeep. He’s buying parts as he can.

Wanted: Hardtop for the DJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Mitchell is looking for a DJ-3A hardtop for his DJ-3A Dispatcher. He’s located in the midwest. Since he has the delivery body and windshield, the best match might be the Koenig made tops with the sliding doors. Here’s Mitchell’s project:

Here’s the hardtop that would work with his windshield. These pics come from the CJ-3B page:

This is the standard delivery top with out a rear window.

This is the CJ-5 version. The window ads extra visibility. I’m pretty sure that this top will fit the DJ as well. Anyone actually tried this?
