Year? CJ-3B? w/ Unusual Parkette Body Blue Ridge, GA $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available. The serial number is included, so the year should be estimate-able.

(06/22/2021) Given the front clip, this might be a 3B chassis, though the Parkette body is a low-hood version.

The seller is correct about Paul Parker and the body. But, I believe this is the first version of this particular style that I’ve seen. It lacks the side stripe, has fender extensions, has a little different PARKETTE design on the back, has an extra wide lip around the rear, and looks like it has a side step. Very interesting.

year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga1year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga2year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga3year-cj2a-parkette-body-ga4
“Rare, rare, rare. 48/49 Willys Jeep with Parkette fiberglass body. Believed only a handful made while Paul Parker was back in Georgia. This one is a bit odd as it doesn’t have the “line” above the fender but it does have flared fenders; the Willys nose panel is original equipment. Not sure it’s on the right size frame at the moment but we do have an original Willys bare chassis on the property we can work into the deal.

Engine/trans present. Very cool project. Needs finishing. No title. Bill of sale only. If the ad is up, the Willys is available.”

1985-1992 Pics of My First jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images Jeeping

I’ve been going through old photos, from both my collection and my parents, to discard the ones that will mean nothing to anyone else (and save my kids from having to throw them out later). Among the photos were some of these early pics of my first jeep, which I eventually called the “Great Escape”.

I started building it when I was 20, a rig for racing, street, and trail. It was built on a part-time cook’s salary, so most everything was hand-me-down parts or hand built parts (example: the spring-shock plates were hand-saw cut from very old railroad-tie plates similar this. Why? Because it was steel we had laying around the garage. The ones we had were about a half-inch thick.

The earliest build pics:

Together and running with the original, used, mini-terra tires (also marketed as mini-terror tires):

Photos from Slides of a Modified Dually CJ-5 on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Old Images • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Barney Goodwin (of Barney’s Jeep Parts) sent this 1973 photo out of Houston showing another possible example of an orange city-of-Houston CJ-5 painted similarly to the jeeps below.

1973-houston-barney-goodwin

Barney added, “This photo was taken in June, 1973 in my hometown of Houston. A neighbor who was an official for the City of Houston owned it. (His city car is to the left of the Jeep in the photo).

Like the Jeeps in the posting (below), I believe this had been a fleet Jeep, special ordered for a construction company, municipality or county. It had the same hard top as in the photos (see the doors propped against the wall behind it. Out of sight but in my copy is the windshield. It is orange also) Note the orange hinges, mirror arm, etc.

The changes he made to it were sand tires (the beach was 50 miles nearby) which I believe were on the Kelsey deep dish rims used on the Renegade and Renegade I, and also the white upholstery .

It was neat to see him cruise around on hot Houston summer days in this- just as it appears.”

==========================

A 1968 image from a slide on eBay shows a dually CJ-5 that’s been modified in an unusual way. Too bad the quality isn’t better.

A second photo on eBay reveals there were two jeeps at the 1968 equipment show in Houston, the jeep above and a second dually CJ-5 with a back hoe. Unfortunately, the image isn’t hi res enough to reveal much about the jeeps:

WWII Jeep Gets an Honorable Discharge

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, videos

UPDATE: I had something else planned for today, but my email turned flakey, so those pics will have to wait until tomorrow …. This is the third time I’ve reposted this, as the first two links turned back.  I first posted the video below in 2015. It’s worth a second third look.

This video is called “WWII Jeep Gets an Honorable Discharge” and shows Mayor Fred Heine’s Ford GP. The video shows the jeep working on the farm. Lots of great shots. Wyatt’s father was the first person to work on it when Fred Heine couldn’t get it started. The jeep is now at the U.S.Veterans Memorial Museum in Huntsville Alabama, which was featured last week.

1964 Wagon Traveller Katy, TX eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

Mike spotted this modified Traveller for sale out of Texas. The serial number put this at only 7 units later than Scrambleer’s (Dan) Orange Traveller (see his wagon at the lower part of this 2014 post). Given it is so heavily modified, it would make a good platform for doing something creative. It would surprise me if this was a former Border Patrol vehicle (but I see no gov plate).

View all the information on eBay

“We believe this is a 1964 Jeep Willys Traveller based on the interior and exterior trim. It has been modified as shown.

It has a V8 and manual trans, 4×4. It runs well. New BFG Tires.

Would make a good hunting or other off road touring rig. It does not have a title. It comes Bill of Sale only.”

Some Days, Dogs are ‘Shitty’

• CATEGORIES: Features

So, this happened the other day ….

Per Ann’s FB post, “Today the girls went to Doggie Details Pet Grooming where Shana, as usual, did an AMAZING job on them. They were soft and pretty and smelled so nice for all of about an hour.

Lizzy proceeded to escaped David’s fence redesign (expanded while the dogs were being groomed). Then, Lizzy got into the Pasture where a cow pooped on her. David then chased her back into the yard where a pensive Betty Page excitedly attacked her before they both bolted through the doggie door, into the house and across the white couch.

Needless to say I had to disregard Shana’s warning about too frequent bathing and bath them for a second time today. We’ve also had to shampoo the sofa, clean the floors, clorox the entire bathroom, wash the slipcovers and finally we got ourselves cleaned up.

I think it goes without saying…..Lizzy is so grounded.

Selling a very rare 1958 Kaiser Willys DJ3a Convertible!…VERY LIKELY the original strait-4 cylinder, single carb and oil-bath air filter. 3 speed manual column shift (“3-on-a-tree”)….Yes, it is called a convertible, did a lot of searches, primarily trying to verify if its really a “Gala Surry”. 2 wheel drive flat fender, no tailgate. Got a clean title but not in my name, can transfer over no problem. This a very solid project that I simply do not have time to work on. I have had this is DRY storage since i got it in 2019. Go to “eWillys.com” to see more info. The previous seller had thought it was possible this was a Gala Surrey model (Google “Gala Surrey/Elvis”, light/powder blue). I am not so convinced BUT definitely a “convertible model” (see old brochures in my photos, I own old original copies, bought on ebay).

THE BADS -NO top frame or soft top material, common problem, unfortunately, but might be available online (repros) -NO back seat -Clutch cable is broke I believe, so cannot test -The body has been cut/modified slightly (entrance to driver’s/passenger seats) (see pics first, I’ll explain) -Never got time to start the process of getting it started, I was told it ran not that long ago, maybe on a ranch property near Temple Texas. I got this on trade for a Triumph TR-6 (he got it on trade with the Temple person)

THE GOODS! -VERY solid and very lowrust, if not at all. -Good tires, been holding for awhile (I have been storing on jacks!) -Decent body that does not need a lot of work -Battery tray solid, no rust! -Some parts been replaced not long ago but cannot confirm dates -Solid rig! hate to sell but just no time that it deserves! PLEASE be legit and serious! Happy to call back with anything I know. CALL or TEXT is best. IF YOU ASK, “is it still available” I will not respond, I will delete the post seconds after its sold. Sorry about the sideways shots, not sure why that happened! [hidden information]
