“Cool little flatty with some rust but alot of good going for it to restore or just have years of fun.
First it has all the original date plates (vin tags) including the brass one on the dash, straight Willys hood, tailgate and windshield.
The full hardtop and doors are aluminum and made by Sears this one is in really good shape considering it’s age, not perfect but all the parts for the “roll” up windows are intact and 2 of the glass pieces are perfect, the others are easy to match and source.
The mechanical winch works.

The Jeep has most of it’s original parts including 16″ matching steel wheels. The motor has been changed to a Buick “Dauntless” V6 and (ironically) it doesn’t run yet. I am soaking the pistons before I try to crank it over. It is full of oil without water and looks good under the valve covers etc. “Ran when parked” according to the 81 y/o guy that has owned it since 1979. It has a Warn OD, original T-90 / Dana Spicer 18 transfer case and 25/41 axles. The floors have rust in the front footwells and in the tool box (from sitting) but the back floor, wheels wells, fenders, hood, grill, etc are sound. There are a few more spots of rust throughout the body but it’s a CA car so nothing you can’t work out.

Come take a look I have a few Jeeps for sale as I realize I can’t keep them all. Make an offer while you are here with cash in your hand if you want me to think you are serious. Ask me if “it’s still available” and I won’t sell it to you.”

Closer Look at “Little Miss Sunshine”

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features • TAGS: , .

Ann has dubbed the yellow racer “Little Miss Sunshine”, due to the yellow color. I don’t know if that’s the end-all name, but it’s a fine name for now.

Yesterday, I decided to remove the body so I could get a better look at the condition of the cage and the suspension.

Let’s take a look first at the rear suspension. The suspension in the rear consists of 2.5″ ranch springs that have been outboarded, to which a sway bar and arms have been added. In the pic below you can see the sway bar behind the axle and the arms in front, connected under the frame. The springs are outboarded six inches. For example, the spring holder in the back consists of a 2×4 rectangular tube, positioned horizontally (under which the spring holder is welded), was welded to a 2×3 tube positioned vertically, which was welded to a 1/4″ plate that was then welded to the frame.

The front of this rear setup is similar, only for additional strength, a 2.5″ tube was welded to the spring holder and frame, which is then welded to the side bar that sits outside and under the body.

One-Lever Dualmatic Hubs

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Blaine forwarded photos of a Willys Wagon with the one-lever-style Dualmatic hubs that include a center bump. I don’t have docs that conclusive identify this one-lever hub as a Dualmatic, but it seems highly probable. Given the design, an attempt to secure the lever with a bump to keep it from shifting, it is likely it was an iteration of the original Dualmatic one-lever hub.

Below is what I have documented for the one-lever Dualmatics and my related guesses as to why. (For two-lever variations of the Dualmatic hubs, try this link)

As a reminder, here is the original patent by Simonsen for the Dualmatic:

dualmatic-single-lever-charles-simonsen-patent1-lores

dualmatic-single-lever-charles-simonsen-patent2-lores

Here’s what I believe that original hub looked like:
dualmatic-first-hub-single-lever-g503

This was likely the second version, this time with two circular bumps:

dualmatic-single-lever-hub1

One of the issues with both of the early versions was that the internal forces apparently could cause the lever to bend. Here’s an example:

dualmatic-first-hub-single-lever-g503-2

To halt that from happening, as photographed by Blaine on a Willys wagon, Dualmatic may have gone with this design:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

A similar design was photographed on a Dodge truck (or I was told it was a Dodge truck):

dualmatic-dodge-one-lever2-lores

Perhaps Dualmatic concluded that the simple one lever design simply didn’t hold up, so the company shifted to a two lever design. This is the point where it would be good to compare the internals of the one-lever vs. two-lever design.

Unknown Cutlas Selective Hub Model

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

Bob shared the photo at the bottom that appeared on a Craigslist Ad for a 1977-J10. It shows what appears to be a Cutlas hub, but it’s a design I don’t have documented. Let’s review the Cutlas Selective Drive Hubs:

The first design was model 100-2 and had no slot:

cutlas-form-104-selective-drive-model100-2-brochure1-lores

Later, Cutlas came out with the slotted form of the hub. Note that the slated knob has a “506-1” part number, suggesting that this whole hub was model 500-1.

cutlas-hub-4

Arguably, the Bulldog was the next iteration of this general design. It too has the slotted knob, but lacks a model number:

cutlas-bulldog-hub1-lores

The hub Bob spotted was on a later model jeep, so maybe Cutlas offered this version of the hub for a short time? It seems to be an further iteration of the Bulldog; unfortunately, I have no brochures that document it.
