“This is a 1951 Willys CJ3A project, with a clean title. I’ve wanted to complete this restoration, but life circumstances have gotten in the way. The jeep has an original L134 “go devil” engine, 6 volt system. Engine doesn’t run, but is free and turns over under starter power. Transmission and transfer case appear to be free, statically shifts into: R, 1, 2, 3, high, low; and transfer case in/out. Chasis wiring has been pulled, needs a new complete wiring harness. Original fuel tank and oil bath aircleaner were junk, have been scrapped, and need replaced. Previous owner installed new exhaust and wheel cylinders. I apologize for the sub-par pictures”

No Updates for June 6th

• CATEGORIES: Features

Updates will return on Monday morning.

I’ve added another club patch to my collection, courtesy of my sister who spotted it at a garage sale. Our club members knew the Go-4-All club members well and we joined together on various trips during the early 80s (and likely later). The Go-4-Alls were generally from the South and East Puget Sound (Washington) area, as was our club.

go-4-all-jacket1 go-4-all-jacket2

This was one of those trips, probably in 1982, on the Manashtash Ridge Trail in the Cascade Mountains, I think. This is a mix of Wandering Willys and Go-4-All jeeps.

Facebook Marketplace’s ‘Disappearing’ Ads

• CATEGORIES: Features

fb-marketplace

Has anyone else noticed this behavior by FB Marketplace?

Disappearing ADs:

Yesterday, Ann told me about her recent experiences with FB Marketplace. While I have only posted one item to FB Marketplace (a car that sold in a day), she has posted multiple items (furniture from the old house). She said that her listing will appear for a day or two, then seems to disappear to the point that it’s hard to find using FB’s search mechanism. A week or two later, she receives a notice informing her that for $3, she can make her ad more visible.

So, basically, you can list for free, but then you need to pay money to make it easier for potential buyers to spot your ad. (other folks have reported their ads can be difficult to locate, such as here and here and here).

This better explains issues I’ve had with FB Marketplace. While doing searches, I occasionally find jeeps that I see for the first time, but have actually been available on FB for weeks. Knowing that I’d already searched in the region previously, sometimes multiple times, it has puzzled me as to why I haven’t seen some ads on a more timely basis.

Example: I regularly (at least semi-weekly) search FB ads in California, yet sometimes jeeps pop up that have been listed for a couple weeks that I have yet to see.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m not a fan of FB Marketplace (the search function sucks and I don’t like that you have to sign up with FB to view ads), but there are so many jeeps (and jeep groups) on FB that it’s hard to run eWillys and not follow FB. If my wife’s experience is accurate, then FB is manipulating (no surprise) ads far more than I realized. 

Users Using Free & $1 ads to get priority:

Additionally, this user claims that ads listed for $1 (but with a price listed within the description)  actually get higher billing than a similar ad with the price correctly listed in the price field. I couldn’t find much discussion about this on the internet. It’s worth examining closer.

This 1946 CJ-2A has sold, but I thought the video was worth seeing. The jeep looks in good company surrounded by those classic cars. While it has a few extras (modern soft top and a gas can holder off the PTO bar), it’s still a beautiful looking example of an early 2A.
