Flattie Wanted: Trade for Snowmobile & Trailer? Central Ma

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Mike wrote to me yesterday.  He’s looking to trade for a jeep.

Mike writes, “I discovered your website about a month ago while looking for a willys to fix up. I am looking for a 1940s or early ’50s willys that someone is willing to trade for a snowmobile and 2 place trailer (est. value of $2500). I am hoping you may be able to help me with this as i haven’t had much luck on my own. i would like to find one that needs some work, but not something i need to start from scratch with. as long as the motor isn’t frozen and there aren’t any holes in the body, i think i could work with that. I am located in central Ma, so something within 10hrs drive would be preferred.”

So, if you have anything you think Mike might like, contact him at: m.holm.sfd at gmail.com or contact me d@ewillys.com.

Hesse Hornet Info Wanted

• CATEGORIES: Features, Industrial-Welder-Generator, wanted

The Hesse Hornet was an air compressor manufactured by the Hess Manufacturing Company in the late 1940s(?).  The compressor used a CJ-2A engine to run, but only pistons 1 & 4.  The middle two pistons were used to compress air.  Keith recently bought one of these and was going to part it out, but changed his mind and now wants to restore it.  However, there isn’t much online about it.  Below are the links we know about it so far.  If you know of any additional info, please add it to the comments.

Seeking a 1947 CJ-2A sold in 1996

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

JJ is looking for the following jeep:

“I bought this 1947 CJ2A in 1996 from a guy named Martel south of Chicago in Palos Park, Illinois for $600 and sold it for $600 in 1997 for $600 to an elderly gent who was from the area east of where I lived in Tinley Park, Illinois. It had been well restored before I owned it but financial problems and mechanical inexperience back then in my misspent youth prevented me from proper upkeep. It was painted a metalflake emerald green and sported a unique front bumper and a vent cover in front of the drivers side on the front panel. I have no record of the serial number from the engine block and it had no title. I was wondering if anyone had seen it? Ever?”
