“Up for sale is this 1953 Willys CJ3A jeep.I got this in a package deal and have too many other flat fender projects going on so decided to find a new home.Yes this has a title!! Overall condition is fairly decent.The frame has some modifications as it’s been lifted and built for some off road action.Tub is also decent but will need a new front floor board as it’s been cut to allow for a small V6 motor. It has no steering column or steering box. Since I restore flat fender Jeeps for a living I added many items back on the rig. See photos for extra items or ask specifics. Again I do have the title and the first person with 2500 OBO cash is the new owner. Sorry NO trades and if you’re not serious or just a tire kicker, don’t bother or waste my time”

Sternad Loco, built in 1917 & Sterand Loco built in 1902.

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE II: You may remember that back in May we discussed Sterand vs. Sternad and the fact that a vehicle called the Sterand made in 1902 was making the rounds on the internet, but that it was actually a Sternad from 1917…..

Well, this popped up on my FB feed yesterday. Listed as a 1902 Sterand in the ad (and available for $325k), I inserted myself into the discussion with my “expertise” only to learn that the seller has a title listing his vehicle as a 1902 Sterand and that his isn’t the 1917 version. Wait, what?

Moreover, if you compare the seller’s vehicle to the one in the postcard, you can see the seller’s vehicle has at least one difference: the seller’s vehicle has a cylinder part that doesn’t exist in the postcard version. Maybe someone else can better sort out the history behind these two almost identical vehicles.



UPDATE: The correct name of this vehicle is Sternad not Sterand, built by Anton (Andrew) Frank Sternad in 1917. As Mark notes in the comments, there is more information on it here:


Originally published May 5, 2023: 

Merlin mentioned this vehicle (and article), called the Sterand Loco, in a Facebook post. Various sourced indicate it was built in 1902, but he felt it looked more like a 1920s build. I agree with him, that it is a cool car, but I am not steeped enough in early car history to know for sure when it might have been built.

After some internet searches, I found the engine was consistent with 1902 (a Rutenber 4 cylinder engine). However, after Googling and checking newspaper articles prior to 1920, I could not find what I felt was a definitive source for the date of the vehicle’s creation (no info on why it is called a Sterand or any promotion surrounding it’s inception). The most I could find was a postcard (from this website) that discussed what the article stated.

Still, it’s a cool car.

Wanted: FC Seats

• CATEGORIES: wanted

I’m looking for a set of FC seats or even just seat frames (I’ll likely be recovering them so they match the tour jeep bench seats in back). My goal is to convert tour jeep’s seats back to the original style of seats as a part of capturing a little more of the original feel of the tour jeep.

Valentine APU CJ-3As Shipshewana, IN BaT Auction


Several folks shared this auction. Nick is selling his very rare Valentine-built CJ-3A APUs. He’s done a great job of uncovering the history of these Valentine APUs and sharing it with the jeep community.


“These Willy-Overland CJ-3A utility vehicles were converted into auxiliary power units for the US Navy in the 1950s by the Valentine Welder & Manufacturing Company for use in starting jet aircraft engines. Both vehicles are finished in yellow and equipped with a seven-slot grille, flat front fenders, a single-seat operator’s station, and power take-off equipment. The pair includes an NC-2 mobile power plant that was designed for use on aircraft carriers and modified with rear-wheel steering, front-wheel drive, and a rear equipment platform. The other truck is one of approximately 75 such units modified into an NA-4 ground-based mobile APU and is fitted with a replacement Willys F-134 inline-four paired with a three-speed manual transmission. The engine has been removed from the NC-2 and is included in the sale.”

Custom Jeep Brooksville, FL $1000


Here’s an odd one.

“So, this has been in my family for quite a while. Believe my great grandpa ‘created’ this back in the 80’s and would mainly use it as a hunting vehicle. To my understanding mostly all the exterior is fiberglass, cab space is mainly sheet metal, engine and chassis are from an old jeep (willys jeep or jeep CJ) sometime in the 1940’s-60’s. Price is OBO, if you think you have any info on the chassis and engine based on the pictures let me know, I would like to learn more about it myself. Have the cylinder head and other parts but are in kind of rough shape as you could assume”
