“1946 Willys Cj2A. Very good condition, especially for being 74 years old she’s less wore out than me. I’ve had her a couple of years and have put on a new electronic distributor, full suspension, shocks and springs, Rugged Ridge front lockers, fuel pump, fuel gauge sender, spare tire, Hi Lift jack, bimini top, 130 c.i. “Go Devil” engine, tires in good condition. Starts and runs great! After WWII when the boys came home they wanted a Jeep like they had over seas. Here it is.

All new parts are from Kaiser Willys parts and accessories. Very few scratches and dents. The only rust is under the passenger seat in the built in tool box bottom that can catch and hold water.

If you are looking for a way restorable old Jeep this is a good way to go. If you call, please leave a message I don’t answer unknown numbers but will call you back. Please no lowballs or trades. And yes, the VIN is 27236!”

It’s more than half way complete and I’m just tired of looking at it sit around. I have countless hours in this Jeep. The rear axel is just a floating axel 4 linked to trail behind, 5th wheel off of a Peterbilt, custom diamond stacks. I could tell you anything you wanted to know about it. It has no title but it’s not a hard process to do a builders title with a bill of sale 4500 firm and no I will not trade for anything cash only.”

“Mitsubishi J3 Diesel RHD Military Jeep.

License built by Mitsubishi. 4 Cylinder diesel from the factory. Built for the Japanese army (and others) from the 1950’s until the late 1990’s.

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it……. Very cool and unique Jeep.”

Kjolseth and Kohlschutter’s 1957 Trip to South American

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

On September 11, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower introduced the People-to-People Program, “to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural and humanitarian activities involving the exchange of ideas and experiences directly among peoples of different countries and diverse cultures.”

Two students out of Colorado University, Rolf Kjolseth, of Boulder, Colorado, and Andreas Kohlschutter, of Berne, Switzerland, decided to put Eisenhower’s idea into action by driving a jeep from the United States to Rio De Janeiro, where they planned to sell the jeep and return to the United State by ship. Along the way, they hoped to meet people from all walks of life. They called their jeep “Columbus II”.

1957-06-24-albuquerque-journal-south-america-trip

June 24, 1957, Albuquerque Journal

The trip was sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency and the Pan American Union. The two young men were supposed to write about their trip and send their stories to several newspapers, but I can’t find any articles with their by-lines. They even had their photo take with  then Vice President Richard Nixon on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, but I haven’t located a copy of that yet.

According to multiple reports, the intrepid explorers drove their early CJ-5 south from Laredo, Texas, through Mexico, into Central America and, probably via boat, made it to South America. The photos below show the pair in Colombia.

I could not locate any information following their stop in Colombia.

At the very least, Rolf made it back to Colorado, becoming an associate professor at the University of Colorado from 1971-2011. I don’t know if Rolf is alive or not, but he does have an email address associated with UC. Whether he monitors it or not, I couldn’t say, but I sent him an email. Hopefully someone will respond.

“Up for sale we have a first year 1987 Jeep Wrangler YJ. This jeep is being sold with 100% of the sale being donated to the American Cancer Society. This Jeep was a generous donation that our local jeep club received from a private owner. It has a clear California title. It is currently not running. We have determined the engine is a 4.2 liter that has been converted to fuel injection. This is not a 4.0.

The jeep was in the process of a full restoration when we received it but as you can tell, it needs to be completed. This was at some time a full frame off restoration. You can tell from the pictures that the frame is in excellent condition. Interior: the interior was in the process of being restored and we feel the majority of all interior parts are included. It includes an after market steel locking console. All three seats are in great shape as well. Original keys and most of the interior parts are original.Tub: the tub is wonderful condition as well. Inside floor boards and rear deck are rust free. The front clip is in good shape with a small ding on the drivers side front fender.
